Reviews for the Huawei Nova 9 Pro

Huawei Nova 9 Pro Review, Pros and Cons
Source: Tech Nave English
The Huawei Nova 9 Pro is an amazing smartphone within an upper mid-budget category. Starting with the display, processor, chipset, and camera, the brand took care of all the features. But what is demotivating is its smaller capacity battery and without 5G support. It doesn’t matter if you have a 100W fast charger, charging a phone twice a day is annoying. Fast charging is just a mind-blowing combination with reverse charging. Another important thing is the brand’s own operating system. If you can commit to these little things, you can be sure of the superior performance of this smartphone. But you must also be aware of your alternatives. As there is no global availability of this phone, you can try alternative options. The Google Pixel 6 Pro smartphone can be considered the best alternative option for the Nova 9 Pro smartphone.

For the nova series, face value is justice. The latest Huawei nova9 Pro series is still on the “ceiling of beauty” in mobile phones. The unique color 9 + Xing Yao craftsmanship gives a different texture to the glass back cover. The blue-purple tone that changes with the light merges with the star sand, which is agile and bright. The frosted surface makes the glass back cover no longer afraid of fingerprints, and users can enjoy the warmth and comfort of the Xingyao back cover. A high-value Huawei nova 9 Pro can satisfy your desire to experience Hongmeng, allowing you to have a flagship image shape, and a complete set of short video one-stop process delivery. If you love taking pictures, love short videos, and love high-value design, then don’t miss this Hongmeng Imaging flagship specially designed for young people.

Series:

Huawei's phone business may be embattled due to software problems but it has not stopped making new phones. While most of them have not made it to European shores, the latest Huawei Nova 9 is an exception to this. In terms of its design, this device is still considered thin at 7.8mm and light at 175g. This definitely makes it rather portable while the curved edges keep it comfortable to be held on too. The rear camera module on the back comes in two different circles which houses the main camera and the remaining lenses. However, this model has no Gorilla Glass on the display and there is also no water or dust-resistant IP rating. As far as the display is concerned, the Huawei Nova 9 has been incorporated with a large 6.75-inch Full HD+ OLED display with high colour coverage. This is paired with an impressive 120Hz high refresh rate. In addition, there is also an under-display fingerprint reader, which can be quite fast and reliable. In terms of its performance, this is a firmly mid-range device which uses the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G chipset paired with an 8GB of RAM with either 128GB or 256GB of storage. It is undeniable that this is not the fastest or most powerful phone on the market, but it has got more than enough power for the average user. The performance is rather smooth and fluid even when multi-tasking, and there is enough power to run any modern smartphone game too.

In terms of its battery, the Huawei Nova 9 comes in with a 4300mAh battery which is enough for the phone to last a day’s use fairly comfortably, but definitely not enough to stretch it to two days unless for an exceptionally light usage. Fundamentally that makes the battery life fairly average for the modern market as there are phones with better battery life out there, but this is obviously not the worst though. As for its camera, this smartphone carries a 50MP main camera, 8MP ultrawide camera, 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The main camera being encased in its own circular housing, utilizes Huawei's RYYB pixel arrangement which the company prefers especially for low light performance. However, in this device it is not combined with optical image stabilization (OIS) which is key to really excellent night photography. Overall, in daylight the main camera is exceptional with rich colours and vivid detail in a range of conditions. Though in darker lighting results are good, the lack of OIS does show. Apart from that, the ultrawide does the job in decent lighting, but there is a marked drop in detail compared to the main lens while colours tend to be washed out. There is also a 32MP selfie camera which is quite decent. Overall, it is a great phone to be considered if the absence of Google Mobile services is not an issue.

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.
