  • Is Huawei Nova 5 Waterproof?

    K

    Answered By Khushi Ranga | 1 years ago

    Definitely, Huawei Nova 5 is not waterproof. Though it has a non-removable back cover, still it is not waterproof. It may sustain a few splashes of water, but it will not withstand a drop in water. IP67 or IP68 certification is not very easy to attain. All the ports, SIM stray and speakers need to be waterproof and ensure no water penetrates. You need to be careful while using your phone,if it drops in water, you definitely need to get new one.

  • How to insert sim card in Huawei Nova 5 ?

    L

    Answered By Lavanya Jayaraman | 1 years ago

    The Huawei Nova 5 does not have a removable back cover. The non-removable back cover helps the manufacturer create a sleek design, lightweight and good looking product. It also helps with recovering a stolen phone, since the battery could not be removed. This is the reason the SIM slots are on the side these days. You can simply follow these steps to insert the SIM card:

    Switch off the Phone.
    1. Locate the SIM tray which is on either side of the phone.
    2. Open the sim tray using sim ejector tool.
    3. Carefully, place the SIM card in it.
    4. Close the tray and you are done.
