Reviews for the Huawei nova 10

Huawei nova 10 Specifications, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
Recently Huawei arrived with its latest smartphone in the upper mid-range segment. The Huawei Nova 10 was launched in July 2022 and offers a 6.67 inches OLED display panel with a high 120 Hz refresh rate. Alongside this, you will receive the HarmonyOS 2.0 OS (China) / EMUI 12 OS (Europe) for software layering, while there is no Google Play services support. As for performance, you get a 6nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 4G chipset that is good enough for heavy usage as it can reach up to a max of 2.4GHz clocking speed. The Nova 10 is available in 8GB RAM and 128GB / 256GB internal storage option. The triple-camera setup on the back includes a 50MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP depth lens. For selfies, you receive an impressive 60MP front camera, while you can record 4K videos at 30fps from both the cameras with gyro-EIS stabilization support. Besides this, you get an under-display fingerprint scanner on the phone for biometric authentication. The Nova 10 equips a decent Li-Po 4000 mAh battery with 66W fast-charging and reverse charging support.

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.

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.
