Reviews for the Huawei Nova 12 Lite

Huawei Nova 12 Lite Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Huawei Nova 12 Lite seems to have all the right specs to make it a performance-oriented all-rounder. The smartphone relies heavily on the design and the performance aspect and they certainly pay off. The design is simply unbeatable at this price point and the performance is more than decent. The camera performance was also quite good, that is if you can ignore the secondary camera performance. There’s almost nothing to complain about except for 5G connectivity, which is not here. Even this would have been not much of a problem if the pricing was decent, which it isn’t. At this price, other smartphones are providing far better features than just 5G. Knowing that those smartphones exist, we cannot say that the pricing is good by any means.

Qualcomm Adreno 642L: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 40% faster than the Adreno 620.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

The SoC is manufactured in the modern 6 nm process at TSMC.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.
