Working in an Online Marketing position and running a sidehustle often means that I have to be a jack of all trades. My working day regularly resembles Cape Town weather. I start off with analysing website traffic data, switch to writing blogs, run website design training sessions for small business, find bugs that’s affecting technical SEO, perhaps send a newsletter to thousands of clients, and there’s a always a chance of having to take photos or record videos. I’m not a pro photographer but I can handle myself when it comes to snapping the perfect shot of a colleague working or even squirrels darting across the Company Gardens. My work is multi-faceted, and I appreciate having the right tools to get things done.

It’s been just over two months since I got the Huawei Nova 5t and it is without a doubt the perfect phone for me. 4 rear cameras that makes my shots look pro with little effort. 16 MP, 48 MP, 2 MP, and 2 MP. You can expect gorgeous images each time you shoot. You can get the most amazing close-ups and surreal landscape photos while the AI does its work. The Huawei Nova 5t has an algorithm that detects the type of photo you want to take and quietly adjusts accordingly. My friends and colleagues are often wowed by the result and even iPhone users are raising an eyebrow.


Here are some tech specs, for those who need to know

Display Size 6.26 inches

Resolution FHD+ 2340 x 1080

CPU HUAWEI Kirin 980 Octa-core

Memory 6 GB RAM + 128 GB ROM

Battery 3750 mAh


OK, enough. It’s an amazingly versatile Android device. My apps run with ease and yes, it has a very good 32 MP selfie camera. The box contains the device, USB type C charger, protective case and earphones. My deal from MTN also included free buds, the wireless earphones for my millennial moments. The Huawei Nova 5t comes in 3 colour variations, Midsummer Purple, Black and the one I have, Crush Blue. They’re all super good looking.

The device is perfect for small businesses owners looking to manage their online affairs on the go. I used my phone to deploy a complete WordPress Web Hosting package and website with no problem. It takes amazing photos and it’s a workhorse. I am super pleased with the device’s battery life. Huawei may not continue to run Android in future but I am sure they will get us hooked on their new operating system and app market which is already available on this device.
