Huawei Nova Review

Huawei fully fit. IFA Berlin 2016 was an opportunity to launch the new Nova range. A few weeks ago, Huawei Nova Plus confirmed a device able to surprise. The world continues to observe very carefully the compact smartphone, rare commodity now. Huawei Nova is here for, be comfortable and extremely reliable.

Unboxing Huawei class, leaves nothing to chance. The device is inserted by cut, solving intriguing. In the final sale you will find the usual paperwork, a wall charger, a usb cable type-c, headphones, nanoSim and a welcome pin cover. Heart Huawei, the sale is thought to have a low impact on the environment, following a rigorous sustainable philosophy.

Huawei Nova is a small Nexus 6 p, analysis of design may close here, the last Nexus was a fantastic and somewhat futuristic device thanks to “black section”. Huawei Nova recreates the lines and character of Nexus 6 p in a compact, handy, Pocket-size. The human dimensions enhance the shapes. The black section is extremely beautiful, elegant and original. The effect of rounded glass on the sides is a pleasure to observe. Huawei has worked flawlessly this aluminum Nova. The back is completely satin brushed as you navigate to a treatment for all side profiles. Don’t miss the classic diamond cut that gives character. The character, the attention to detail you can intravederlaElegante, comfortable in a single and small element, the power button red profile. Standard the front with glass 2.5 D, that’s OK.

Use a compact device is pleasant, rediscover how comfortable a smartphone small and light it feels good. Huawei Nova you use with just one hand, it is also comfortable to carry. Probably the nicest Huawei ever built.

Huawei Nova has a display from “only” 5 inch, IPS, FullHD resolution. The pixel density is very high on this Panel, just don’t go any further with the resolution, thanks to consumption. The display is of pure quality, the colors are intense, vivid and deep while maintaining a natural calibration. The maximum brightness is very valid, a factor that allows you to use Huawei Nova in direct sunlight without problems. Someone can evaluate 5 inches are not valid for displaying content, it does not. Huawei Nova is the right compromise. If the display is striking for its quality, you can’t say the same thing about the sound. The speaker’s position is correct, if it cannot be placed on the front, you better stay there, the bottom profile. The human dimensions involve a human trap, hindering the sound when you use this Huawei Nova horizontally is not difficult. The maximum volume is good but the quality is not the fine, there’s an attempt to reproduce in detail the various shades but doesn’t do miracles. Fortunately there is the audio jack, stellar performances but at least there is not.

Too often it is easy to meet compact smartphone with a hardware limited, Huawei has no place limits to this Nova. Android 6.0 Marshmallow + EMUI 4.1, rest assured, Huawei has already made official the arrival of Android 7.0 Nougat + EMUI 5.0. The historic Huawei interface focuses on extreme customization, security, and performance.

Well stocked the store themes EMUI, you can change the look to this Nova in a Flash, making it more similar to Google’s will in Material Design, there are also themes that emulate the new Huawei 5.0 EMUI Mate 9. The settings are filled with sections to manage every aspect of the device, always present the voice smart Assistance which includes gestures and useful features. Good dose of confidence that Huawei inserts in its interface, the user can control whatever happens to your phone.

A software so vast it might be hard to manage, the reality is that Huawei Nova is lightning. The Snapdragon Qualcomm 625 is one of the best I’ve ever developed, almost don’t feel the need to opt for a superior hardware. All current activities are performed without the slightest delay, lag or microclicks, everything is fluid and smooth animations. Surprisingly, even 3 GB RAM management, multi-tasking operations are not a problem. Huawei Nova has great performance, Nougat will make this device a small miracle.

There is another aspect where this Nova proves real, the phone. Huawei hides the antennas, great reception. Quality in the capsule, and warm. Little to say, Huawei is a security for managing mail.

The tradition is confirmed, Huawei always puts the fingerprint sensors very quickly in his smartphone. The sensor of this Nova is located on the back, has a disarming read speed, the accuracy is first class. You don’t have to be too precise, the fingerprint sensor to recognize Nova always prints Huawei. Huawei 12 Megapixel camera features a Nova, f 2.2, flash Led. The front room is from well 8 Megapixels, manages to take excellent selfie, good wide angles. The ability to shoot through the fingerprint sensor is really convenient for self portraits. Putting aside the indexed, how does this module from 12 Megapixels in daily use? f 2.2 might fool you, this Huawei Nova does some good photographs.

In good light conditions this device manages to capture many details, the photographs are of good impact. The color reproduction is faithful enough, management of the lights is precise and the white balance is always the right one. Fast focus well enough, but be careful to the point of focus that also regulates exposure. next 40 gathering information is a snap. In whole and in precarious light conditions the results remain good levels, white balance tends to slightly, the focus is not very fast but the shot General is more than fair with a good job of reducing video noise. Video recording arrives at 4 k resolution. Compelling video, honestly electronically stabilized but audio capture is not the best.

Use Huawei Nova and it’s easy to ask: “How can you not download ever?”. In a device so small and compact, Huawei has entered a 3000 mAh battery. Many mAh, display “only” 625 and Snapdragon processor, here’s the Full winning recipe for a day and a half of moderate use. Stressandolo well you can always end the day at least with 25%. Great job Huawei, great job.

Love at first sight for Huawei Nova. In a landscape dominated by huge display diagonal, he’s there, small, compact and easy to handle. Nova has personality, the design is a tribute to the Nexus 6 p, the power button red fire is the icing on the cake. The personality is expressed through a 5-inch IPS display FullHD by convincing quality, a 12 megapixel camera can capture every memory and performance able to shake many higher end opponents. The quality and the excellent battery life put the point to one of the best Huawei in circulation.

Huawei Nova is pure demonstration that in 2016 no need to burn 800 euros as if nothing had happened for a smartphone. Yes, of course, a small gap is still there but nothing that would justify a price range so wide. If that design makes you crazy, this Huawei Nova is worth every dime.
