The camera function of HUAWEI nova 2

The HUAWEI nova 2 has a 20 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The HUAWEI nova 2 is equipped with a rather powerful 12 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.

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.

HUAWEI nova 2's size

The HUAWEI nova 2 is 27.2 in (69 mm) wide, 55.9 in (142 mm) tall, and 3.0 in (7.6 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 5.0 oz (143 g).The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed.

HUAWEI nova 2's storage capacity
