The Huawei Nova 8 is comparable to the aforementioned Reno5 5G and Redmi Note 10 Pro in terms of price-to-performance ratio.
As the hardware margins are so thin, it would have been a coin toss to determine which option is superior if it weren’t for the software concessions consumers would be required to make.
The issue is that consumers are unwilling to accept concessions, particularly when it comes to mid-range saturation. Thus the Nova 8 comes with a disclaimer.
Is it worth the risk? Yes, but given the current abundance of options, it is unnecessary.
