At PHP 34,990, the Galaxy A80 is a beautifully designed Samsung phone with a massive screen to let you enjoy a lot of content.

It also has rotating cameras designed to provide similar back and front shots. AND, the overall performance is respectable.

However, for much less, the Huawei Nova 5T, can compete or beat the Galaxy A80 in a lot of ways.

For a phone priced at just PHP 18,990, it has faster performance, slightly better battery life, and arguably better back cameras for photos and videos.

Given that a more expensive phone had a very hard time against a much cheaper device, it is clear who won this comparison.

For us, it is the Huawei Nova 5T.
