80% Huawei Nova 8I Review – The Phone With Youthful Vigour
Source: Pokde English
Back to the question of whether the HUAWEI nova 8i is capable of carrying the legacy set by the devices that came before it. I would say, yes. The HUAWEI nova 8i is a pretty great device with the highlights being its attractive design, its great screen, its decent set of cameras and its massive battery life. All great features for any young person to use for their day-to-day needs. The device retails for RM1,299 and is available on the HUAWEI Online Store as well as the official HUAWEI stores on Shopee and Lazada.

Huawei nova 8i review - Enough features for the average user
Source: Tech Nave English
As you would expect with mid-range phones, there are often trade-offs so that companies can keep the device at a price point they want. The Huawei nova 8i offers features typically found in a mid-range device, with tech specs and features that are a level above an entry-level phone. The display, memory configuration, and camera offerings are all pretty good. Its chipset isn't the best, but it's not too bad of a phone overall. If there's a problem, it would probably be the price. For RM1299, you could get the POCO X3 GT, which comes with more powerful hardware and a better-looking design. Another alternative is the OnePlus Nord N10 5G, which has an OS that's almost vanilla Android OS and an RM1199 price tag. So, what are your thoughts on the Huawei nova 8i after reading our review? Is there another device you'd like to see us write about? Do let us know in the comments below! Also, thanks for reading and please stay tuned to TechNave for more review articles like this.

Huawei Huawei nova 8i Unboxing, Quick Review Philippines: Mini-mate
Source: Unbox English
The Huawei nova 8i looks compelling enough for the Philippine market if it didn’t have a lot of competition, unfortunately, the mid-range segment is super competitive right now. At its price point, it’ll be doing battle with really heavy hitters, and we’ll have to see if the phone’s camera performance, battery endurance and overall performance will elicit a recommendation from our end.

Huawei Nova 8i Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
There are two main factors why you should buy Huawei Nova 8i, first for its premium bezel design and second for its fast charging support. If you don’t like the camera very much, but streaming online content is a daily necessity, it will provide enough screentime. Overall, the design look looks lovely and you’re also getting pretty decent camera quality. Not to forget, the quick charging support is also fabulous. However, all of these aspects may or may not justify the cost. However, if you’re looking for a performance beast that enhances gameplay and delivers a smooth experience, then the Huawei Nova 8i lags behind. Another big reason would be that the phone didn’t have a higher refresh rate or an AMOLED panel. Anyway, if you’re looking for performance in the same price range the Samsung Galaxy F52 is the better alternative option for you.

70% Huawei nova 8i Review – Latest midrange EMUI phone tested
Source: Hitech Century English
The Huawei nova 8i is a fair choice for users who need a budget phone that hosts a large display – and this phone has one of the largest in its price range – and long battery life. It does require a bit of extra legwork to get the apps you want as many of them need to be sideloaded which adds a certain level of complexity to using it. Where its primary appeal lies though is that it’s intended to be part of a growing ecosystem of seamlessly interconnected Huawei gear with fast, efficient pairing to their wireless earbuds, monitors and laptops. If you’re already invested in other Huawei gear, this is well worth a look.

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 662: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2 GHz Cortex-A73 cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in a 11 nm LPP process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Huawei: Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. is a Chinese company founded in 1987 with focus on telecommunications hardware and 170000 employees. In the first quarter of 2016, Huawei had a market share of 8.2% in the smartphone market, making it the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Compared to the same quarter of 2015, Huawei increased its market share by more than 58%.
In 2014, Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. The name Huawei is usually not listed for these products.
There are a lot of reviews on Huawei phones with slightly above average ratings (as of 2016).


75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
