Reviews for the Huawei Nova 6 5G

Huawei Nova 6 5G Review: is No.1 DxO Selfie King Smartphone
Source: Igeekphone English
Previously, we knew that Huawei’s nova series is best at stylish mid-to-high-end models. The predecessor nova5 Pro made us realize that its ability to build an all-round flagship is not bad. This work shows us the potential of a nova in the 5G era. For young people who are looking for quality and taking photos, in the 5G era, Huawei nova6 5G should be considered as the first choice among flagship works.

Huawei nova 6 5G front camera review
Source: DxOMark English
Huawei has always put emphasis on the front camera with its nova series, and the nova 6 5G continues that tradition. Excellent performance in pretty much all test areas secure it the new number one spot in our DXOMARK Selfie ranking, making it an easy recommendation to any ambitious selfie shooter. It’s the best device for Photo that we have tested to date, capturing images with excellent color, exposure, and dynamic range in almost all situations. An effective autofocus system and wide depth of field ensure well-focused subjects and good detail in the background, and the bokeh mode is capable of capturing pleasantly natural results. The camera’s 4K video mode is capable of recording high-quality footage in most situations, making the nova 6 5G a good choice for vloggers and other content creators who shoot selfie videos.

ARM Mali-G76 MP16: Integrated graphics card based on the second generation of the Bifrost architecture. Uses 16 of the 20 possible clusters and according to ARM offers twice the performance per cluster than the old Mali-G72. It is used in the Kirin 990 5G and according to Huawei should be about 6% faster and 20% more efficient than a Adreno 640 in a Snapdragon 855.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
