Huawei Nova Hong Kong: A Well-Designed Mid-Range Device

The Huawei Nova is a mid-range phone that sports high-end features such as its high-quality aluminum frame. It’s close to Huawei’s top-of-the-line flagship phones in terms of construction and performance. Here’s a rundown of its specifications and features.

Solid Metallic Design

The Huawei Nova sports an aluminum body that feels sturdy in the hand, at the same time it is dense and has a metallic finish, giving it a premium look. Its exterior is not all metal though, as there are plastic trimmings found at the top and bottom of its rear. Aside from that, the Huawei Nova’s design has ergonomic elements to make it easy to use. Its 5-inch display also has the right thickness to make it easy put in the pocket.

Impressive Display

In front, the Nova’s 5-inch display comes with a pixel resolution of 1080x1920. It provides vibrant colors and sufficient brightness that make it legible outdoors. Much like other Huawei smartphones, you can adjust the colour temperature on the Nova to suit your taste, making it look warmer or cooler. There's also an Eye Protection mode that makes the screen appear orangey, reducing some of the blue light that causes eyestrain.

Above Average Battery Performance

The Huawei Nova may be a 5-inch phone but it houses a 3020mAh battery, which is quite large for its size. In terms of the battery’s stamina, it ranges from average to above average, depending on your data connection. Meanwhile, its chip is quite efficient and gives you a full day’s use whether or not you stream audio. The battery can even last up to two days between charges without running streaming apps.

Powerful Selfie Camera

The Huawei Nova sports a 12MP sensor on its back with a single-LED flash and an 8MP front snapper in front. As long as there’s proper lighting, the Huawei Nova’s primary camera offers quality images. Meanwhile, its front snapper (of f/2 lens aperture) provides good quality selfies. Even in inconsistent indoor lighting, the front sensor can bring out small details like beard hairs. All in all, the Huawei Nova’s 8-MP front snapper is among the stronger ones on the market these days.

Super-Efficient Processor

The Huawei Nova is among the first smartphones to harness the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. This octa-core processor has a 2.0GHz clock speed to handle heavy apps and games. Compared to high-end flagship smartphones, the Huawei Nova’s chip is considered midrange, however, it can run high-end games like Asphalt 8 with no visible frame drops or lags. This processor coupled with the Adreno 506 GPU, makes it capable of running high-end titles with 1080 p resolution. Moreover, the Snapdragon 625 has a 14nm architecture, allowing it to operate efficiently; as a result, it can reach a high clock speed without risking the kind of overheating that its predecessors suffered from.
