Reviews for the Huawei Nova 12 Ultra

Huawei Nova 12 Ultra Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Huawei Nova 12 Ultra smartphone seems to provide all the right specs to provide a solid user experience. It has a high-end display, chipset, and battery that are usually reserved for high-end smartphones. But the smartphone also missed many features such as a better camera, water resistance, wireless charging, and Android OS support. Some smartphones provide better features along with a far better camera system for a price tag that is lower than the Nova 12 Ultra smartphone. That’s none other than the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE which provides similar or better specs in every way. So, if you live outside of China, there’s very little reason to go for the Huawei Nova 12 Ultra. But if you live in mainland China, then this smartphone can be a better option, thanks to HarmonyOS 4.0’s rich ecosystem support that may vastly enhance the user experience for Chinese users. However, the final decision is up to you, so it is better to choose a smartphone based on your requirements and needs.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics 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.
