Even when Huawei phones have GMS, the update regularity was like once every 2 months at best. MIUI is not that good with update regularity either, but having GMS is already a big plus for a lot of users.

                      Anyway the D920 is the direct rival to the 778G performance. Try nanoreview for benchmarks

                      The Nova is almost twice the price it should be.

                      OnePlus Nord 2 5G at £399
                      Pixel 6 at £599

                      The pricing just doesn't make sense.

                      £200-250 maybe

Not really, yeah that phone is stupid cheap but Dimensity 920 won't be enough to have good photos out of a 108MP Lens, it's selfie camera is much worse and good luck living with MiUI and those certainly regular software updates. All that being said Huawei always releases Nova phones at higher prices then takes them down for whatever reason, check out how Nova 5T ruled over the upper midrange category in 2019-2020. This phone would easily do the same if it was to go down a little on price.
