Huawei Nova 11i Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
At first, the Huawei Nova 11i seems to be a decent option in the upper midrange segment. The device carries a massive battery, robust fast charging support alongside a decent selfie camera. But still, the device disappoints in terms of sensors, customization, and 4K recording support. Not only this, an AMOLED panel is missing on the device. The device can’t be comfortable to use outdoors as it got default nits brightness support. The camera department is also just average and has nothing special to talk about. The chipset lacks 5G connectivity but is good for mediocre performance. However, the smartphone can be a bit slow for some as it has Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset compared to other devices in the market. So, if you are looking for a fast and speedy smartphone, take a look at the Lava Agni 2.

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.
