Reviews for the Huawei Nova 4

Huawei Nova 4 Review
Source: Yugatech English
The Huawei Nova 4, coined as the successor to the much-favored Nova 3, is a smartphone that we can say could be an all-screen twin of its predecessor. We sure got an all-screen device with an innovative punch-hole camera, triple camera setup, and long battery life. Those, though, does not justify the fact that we’ve seen more significant downsides than that.

Huawei Nova 4 Review: Life With The Hole Ain’t So Bad

Yes, if it’s ever offered in the Philippines, that is. Huawei Philippines still isn’t saying if they will sell the Nova 4 in the country, which makes recommending it difficult.

Huawei Nova 4 Unboxing, Quick Review: This Phone Needs To Be Sold Here
Source: Unbox English
Right now Huawei hasn’t confirmed yet if they’re selling the phone here in the Philippines, but the mere fact that they sent a review device over may be an indication that they’re gaging public interest before pulling the trigger. As for pricing, we can only guess: in Malaysia, the Nova 4 is RM 1899, which is roughly around 24.2K without taxes and duties factored in for the base 20-megapixel variant.

Huawei Nova 4 New Evaluation, Design, Hardware, Features, Review
Source: Igeekphone English
Huawei has always called the Nova series users nova stars. This group of young people likes to play, likes cool, and likes the latest technology. Huawei Nova 4 fully meets these requirements. The more cool appearance, the powerful performance, and the excellent shooting are enough to make Nova 4 the new favorite of nova stars. The innovative pole screen design is also in the full-screen tide of this year’s blossoms and has a new design idea. Whether pole screens can become the mainstream of the industry, but also need to be counted by consumers after the product goes on the market.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
