The Huawei Nova 3 packs all the features that are in demand this year. It particularly excels in the design. The dual tone glass back looks simply stunning. Let’s now go straight to the full review, shall we?
The design and display
The Huawei Nova 3 offers an excellent build quality with a sturdy metal frame and a shiny glass back up. The bezels on the smartphone are barely there and this is a really good looking device. The glass back does make the phone prone to smudges and slightly slippery but that’s the deal you get with smartphones of this design. Some might call it gaudy while some might term as bold but the truth is that Huawei Nova 3 makes you look at it more than twice. The hybrid dual-SIM tray is on the left hand side whereas the volume button and power button is located on the right side. Right at the bottom you find the usual array of offerings like the headphone jack, USB Type-C port and the speaker grille. Despite this being a slightly taller smartphone, one-handed operations are quite easy to manage. The Huawei Nova 3 screams sleekness and a premium look from all angles and Huawei deserve.
It has a 6.3-inch IPS display with full HD+ 2340×1080 resolution. The display produces smooth and sharp colours – be it for pictures or for text. The brightness levels are perfect as is sunlight legibility. Watching videos and other multimedia content on the Huawei Nova 3 is quite a pleasant experience.
Hardware, Software and Performance
It is powered by the flagship HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC that’s designed in-house by Huawei. The Kirin 970 Soc has an octa-core setup with four Cortex A73 cores clocked at 2.4GHz and four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. There’s also a co-processor inside to handle AI workloads.
The primary camera on the front is a 24MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and is partnered with a 2MP broad spectrum color sensor that captures depth-of-field information for authentic bokeh effects. On the back, there is an additional pair of cameras in a 24MP + 16MP configuration.
The Huawei Nova 3 has a 3,750mAh battery that is quite adequate for the package.
