Huawei has been making phones since 2003 and it has grown to become one of the biggest brands in the world for smartphones, rivalling the likes of Samsung and Apple.
That’s in part because of the remarkably accomplished flagships it launches, such as those in the P and Mate ranges.
Why choose a Huawei 5G phone?
Huawei has a lot of experience of making smartphones at all ends of the market, as well as specifically being one of the more experienced 5G phone companies – in fact, it launched one of the first 5G phones and even created its own 5G modem, as well as crafting other types of hardware, such as 5G mobile broadband devices.
That experience means you can be confident that the company knows what it’s doing, and as such many of its phones are among the best in their category.
Huawei particularly excels when it comes to smartphone cameras, so any 5G phone from the company is likely to perform well on that front, with its handsets often having lots of lenses, good optical zoom, and great low light skills.
Huawei also isn’t afraid to innovate. Being one of the first companies to launch a 5G handset is testament to that, but it also launched one of the first folding phones, among other things, so a Huawei 5G handset may also have other interesting or cutting-edge features that you won’t find in many other places.
So whether you get a Huawei phone on contract or buy one outright and go SIM Only, the brand is well worth considering for a 5G handset – just make sure you have 5G coverage first.
Note also that most recent Huawei phones don’t have access to the Google Play Store or Google apps, but the company runs its own app store that is packed full of content.
Notable Huawei 5G phones
Huawei’s notable 5G phones include the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, a massive top-tier handset with a 6.76-inch screen, a class-leading camera setup (including a 50MP main one, a 12MP telephoto, and a 20MP ultra-wide), and plenty of power.
The Huawei P40 range is also notable, offering similarly great hardware in a slightly smaller size. Then there’s the Huawei Mate XS 5G – an 8-inch foldable phone that looks like it came from the future.
