Fast Huawei phone facts

  • Despite lacking the brand recognition of a Samsung or Apple, Huawei has been manufacturing and selling mobile phones since 2004.
  • Many Huawei handsets have broken new ground with ultra-slim designs, high-speed modems and extra-large displays.
  • Huawei equips its smartphones with a custom user interface known as EMUI, an Android skin that emphasises personalisation and quick navigation.

What to consider when choosing a Huawei phone

Huawei tends to pack a lot of features into its smartphones. While this ensures you get plenty of bang for your buck, it can also make comparing different handsets a long and complex task. To simplify matters, we've narrowed down the myriad aspects of the phone-buying process to a handful of key factors that will help you determine which Huawei phone is best suited to your needs:

Which Huawei phone is best?

As tempting as it is to label a particular phone "the best", the fact is that individual needs and preferences differ so greatly that no single handset could hope to be ideal for everyone. So, rather than claiming a particular Huawei smartphone is unequivocally better than the rest, we've selected a few different handsets we believe are worth your consideration.

While our choices are informed by the years we've spent testing and reviewing smartphones in Australia, that doesn't mean they're right for everyone. Always take into account your own expectations and circumstances when considering the following handsets.

Finder's pick

Huawei P30 Pro

A battery behemoth with a top-notch camera

Huawei combines its industry-leading camera tech with a slick design and plenty of grunt in the excellent P30 Pro.

  • Astonishingly good camera.
  • Hefty battery life.
  • Kirin 980 processor performs well.
  • Nice design.
Promoted

With its stunning camera, stalwart battery life and powerhouse performance, the Huawei P30 Pro stands out as one of the most impressive smartphones in the premium space. Combine that with a price tag hundreds of dollars cheaper than competing handsets from companies like Samsung and Google, and you've got yourself one of the most compelling all-round packages money can currently buy.

Best cheap Huawei phone

Huawei Nova 3i

A solid package at a very attractive price

If you're looking for a budget smartphone that doesn't cheap out on performance or functionality, the Huawei Nova 3i is right up your alley.

Promoted

While accepting a few compromises is par for the course when shopping for a budget smartphone, Huawei managed to avoid any significant sacrifices with the Nova 3i. Its Kirin 710 processor performs commendably for a phone in its price range, and its inclusion of four cameras gives you plenty of versatility when taking photos. Sure, its battery life isn't spectacular and there's no NFC built-in, but these are minor quibbles when stacked up against the impressive 18:9 display and capable four-camera array.

Looking for a Huawei phone on a plan?

Smartphones are expensive, and buying one outright is often out of the question. Bundling a new handset in with a phone plan is typically far more affordable, and quite a few Australian mobile providers offer plans that come with Huawei handsets. You can compare these plans in the table below to help you find one that fits your budget:
