The Huawei Nova 5T has a build that consists of glass material plus a metal frame that gives it a premium feel. For the price, it is impressive.



In the looks department, they both look great. The Galaxy A80 gets some points due to its unique flipping camera system. The front of the Galaxy A80 also looks cleaner with no punch hole or notch though.

Galaxy A80 has a taller Super AMOLED screen. The Nova 5T has a higher pixel density so the images come out a bit more shaper. Both have FHD+ resolution.

It is an absolute mismatch!

Samsung Galaxy A80 is a phone with flagship price, but with mid-range internals. On the other hand, Huawei Nova 5T is phone with mid-range price tag, but with flagship-worthy internals.
