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 is an aluminium phone and it feels dense and hard, two properties that make a device feel like it is made of solid metal rather than a cheap phone with a metallic finish. It's not all metal though, as there are plastic inserts at the top and bottom of its back. These bits of plastic are what tell you this is a slightly lower-cost phone than the iPhone 7 or Huawei P9, but you won't notice them when simply holding and using the phone. Also, the Huawei Nova has an exceptionally easy-going design for day-to-day use. A 7.1mm thickness and a 5.0-inch screen mean it's not a pocket-bulging phone.

Impressive Display

Around the front, the Nova's screen is five inches across, with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The Nova Nova offers relaxed, natural colours through its display. Also, it provides a strong maximum brightness, making outdoor use no problem. Much like other Huawei smartphones, you can tweak the colour temperature on the Nova to suit your eyeballs' tastes, making it look warmer or cooler. There's also an Eye Protection mode that makes the screen very orangey, cutting out some of the blue light that causes eyestrain.

Above Average Battery Performance

The Huawei Nova has a 3020mAh battery, which is large for a 5.0-inch phone, particularly one with a 14nm processor. Stamina out in the real world varies between decent and excellent, largely depending on how much you use a 4G data connection. The CPU itself is efficient, but the demands of a trickling data connection used when, for example, streaming podcasts, bring the Huawei Nova down to earth. You'll still get a full day's use whether or not you stream a lot of audio, but when laying off podcasts and Spotify, you’ll get a full two days between charges.

Powerful Selfie Camera

The Huawei Nova uses a 12MP sensor on the rear with a single-LED flash and an 8MP selfie camera. With proper lighting, the Huawei Nova’s rear camera offers quality images. Meanwhile, its front-facing camera offers good quality selfies, thanks to its f/2 lens aperture. Even in patchy indoors lighting, it's able to reliably bring out details like little beard hairs. There are plenty of 8MP front-facing cameras out there these days, but this is among the stronger ones.

Super-Efficient Processor

The Huawei Nova is one of the first phones to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. This is an octa-core processor with a 2.0GHz clock speed, but its cores are all the Cortex-A53 kind, used as the 'everyday' cores in some of 2015's and 2016's flagship mobiles.

The Snapdragon 625 sounds uses a super-efficient 14nm architecture, meaning it can reach a high clock speed without risking the kind of overheating that its predecessors suffered from.
