The Huawei Nova 2 Plus boasts a premium design and an affordable price, which is a rare combination you can find in midrange devices. It also has a top-of-the-line selfie camera and produces a satisfactory audio output. Aside from that, here are nifty features of this sought-after handset from Huawei.
Running on the Android 7.0 Nougat along with the EMUI (Emotion User Interface), the Nova 2 Plus offers great visuals and a customizable home screen. You can choose between getting all your apps on the home screen or enabling the app drawer to feature only the most used apps and widgets. The Nova 2 Plus also has a themes app that lets you change themes and icons. Overall, the Nova 2 Plus’ User Interface is easy to navigate, allowing you to switch in between apps or scroll through a long list and web pages without any lags or issues.
The Nova 2 Plus’ 6.9mm-thick chassis offers a comfortable feel in the hands and has ergonomic elements that make it easier to use than other handsets with a similar display size. In front, you can find a large glass slab for the screen and the bezels on the top and bottom which don’t feel oversized. As for other features, the Nova 2 Plus has a SIM tray situated on the left of the device which can hold one nano-SIM and one micro SIM, or a microSD card. The power button and the volume keys are placed on the right, while the dual camera setup, the LED flash, and the fingerprint sensor are found on the back.
Found on the back of the Nova 2 Plus is the 20-MP dual camera set up that offers decent wide-angle and long-focus images. Despite lacking an optical image stabilization, the Nova 2 Plus has a 20-MP front sensor that boasts a ten-grade beautification selfie. This lets you capture natural and vibrant selfies.
One of Nova 2 Plus’ main selling points is its cutting-edge audio output that is devoid of any distortion and disturbances in processing, giving you a clean and crisp audio experience while watching movies and gaming. In terms of gaming performance, the device can manage to run games smoothly with no frame drops, thanks to its Kirin 659 chip.
Housing a 3,340 mAh battery, the Huawei Nova 2 Plus is similar in capacity to its previous iteration. Although there’s no upgrade in terms of battery life, the good thing about it is that it could still last up to two days with moderate usage. By moderate usage, it means using your handset to take a handful of photos, listen to some music for an hour, browse the web, and update your social channels.
