Huawei Nova 5T Vs Vivo V17 Pro, Which Smartphone Should You Buy?

Both Huawei Nova 5T and Vivo V17 Pro are great mid-range smartphones for their price. However, between the two, which phone is the best for you?

Having the same price, should you choose Huawei Nova 5T or Vivo V17 Pro at this time? The Huawei Nova 5T price in India isn’t available yet, but its price in other markets is around Rs. 27,000. Meanwhile, the Vivo V17 Pro price in India is Rs. 29,990.

Huawei Nova 5t Vs Vivo V17 Pro


In terms of performance, the representative from Huawei is slightly better than the Vivo V17 Pro. Specifically, the Nova 5T is equipped with Kirin 980 chipset, which a high-end chipset integrated on flagships in 2019 like the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, promising outstanding performance. As for the Vivo V17 Pro, the device is only equipped with the mid-range Snapdragon 675 SoC, which is a quite powerful one but it is still difficult to compete with Kirin 980 on the Nova 5T.

For real-world experience, the Huawei handset seems to launch some games faster than the Vivo smartphone. Heavy games like PUBG Moblie or Asphalt 9 run smoothly on these two smartphones. This comes from both phones having up to 8GB of RAM.

For other common tasks, the Nova 5T and Vivo V17 Pro both handle very quickly and easily. I even use the multi-window mode on two phones and the apps all work perfectly.

Design & Display Quality

Both of these smartphones feature a separate beauty appearance on the outside. However, I like the square, more masculine design of the Nova 5T than the rounded, soft curved design on the Vivo V17 Pro. However, that is my subjective opinion, and it is easy for you to choose your favorite design by looking at photos of the two phones.

On the front, Huawei offers a 6.26-inch punch-hole screen, which slightly smaller than the 6.44-inch display of the Vivo V17 Pro. Of course, both are large enough for daily tasks, playing games, or watching movies and videos. The special thing is that Vivo V17 Pro brings a real FullView screen, no notch or cut-out, while the Nova 5T brings a new design, with a selfie camera placed in a small cut-out, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10.

Regarding the display quality, due to its LCD screen, the Nova 5T gives a decent display quality with realistic colors, not too bright, decent details, and Full HD + resolution. Those are enough to make you satisfied. However, the Vivo V17 Pro is equipped with AMOLED screen and also equipped with Full HD + resolution, not to mention its display has a full-screen design with no notch or punch-hole. In this department, the Vivo smartphone seems to have an edge over its Huawei counterpart.


Huawei Nova 5t Camera Module

In terms of photography, this is really a race for the number of lenses between the two leading outstanding representatives in the mid-range segment. The Nova 5T is equipped with a cluster of 4 cameras with the specifications of 48MP + 16MP + 2MP + 2MP respectively, which is more impressive with a 48MP lens, providing good imaging capabilities, high details in most of the environments and conditions. In addition, the device also has a 16MP ultra wide-angle camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and 2MP macro photography. They are decent for those who are not really strict about photo quality.

As for Vivo V17 Pro, it is also no less competitive as the device is also equipped with four sensors, including 48MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP lenses, and all the features are similar to its rivals. However, its wide-angle camera only has 8MP resolution while the Nova 5T comes with a 16MP ultra-wide-angle camera.


With a price of around Rs. 29,990, both smartphones are really good choices in their price segment. Both meet the current user needs for photography, performance as well as trendy designs. The Huawei Nova 5T launch date in India hasn't been confirmed yet, while the Vivo V17 Pro launch date in India was September.
