Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Huawei nova 2

Huawei nova 2's size

The Huawei nova 2 is 2.7 inches (68.9 mm) wide, 5.6 inches (142.2 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (6.9 mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the Huawei nova 2, it weighs about 143 oz (143 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

Both the size and weight of the Huawei nova 2 make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

Huawei nova 2's screen

The Huawei nova 2 has a 5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the Huawei nova 2 is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The camera function of Huawei nova 2

The main camera of the Huawei nova 2 has a capacity of 8 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The battery performance of Huawei nova 2

The Huawei nova 2 has a relatively large battery with 2950 mAh. The Huawei nova 2 has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

The CPU performance of Huawei nova 2

The Huawei nova 2 has an extremely high processing power of 2.36GHz+1.7GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Huawei nova 2 has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Huawei nova 2 has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Huawei nova 2's storage capacity

The Huawei nova 2 has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Huawei nova 2 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of Huawei nova 2

The Huawei nova 2 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
