Huawei Nova 3i Review


Having recently purchased a Huawei Nova 3i, I’ve spent some time evaluating its performance, and I’ve found that it’s an excellent mid-range smartphone. It has a decent camera, decent battery life, and a custom operating system (EMUI 8.2) that’s easy to get used to. I think it’s worth the price tag, and I’d recommend it if you’re in the market for a smartphone.


Taking pictures with the new Huawei Nova 3i can be quite an exciting experience. It comes with the latest software, powerful hardware, and a trimmed-down feature set.

The new Nova 3i features a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The display offers options for color mode and temperature settings, as well as a Smart resolution option. The display also supports a night mode that allows users to adjust the exposure to 32 seconds.

Huawei Nova 3i cameras are armed with AI, which helps them recognize different scenes and capture the right photos. They also feature a number of other features, such as Slow-mo and Document scan. The images produced by the camera are crisp and clear and look great in HDR mode. They are also social media-friendly.

The Nova 3i’s front camera offers a portrait mode that captures decent portrait shots. It also offers split lighting and Rembrandt lighting, which helps users get the best shots of their faces.

Battery life

Whether you are a power user or not, the battery life of the Huawei Nova 3i is impressive. The 3340mAh battery is sufficient to support most day-to-day tasks without a hitch. The phone can also handle high-end games on low and medium settings without lags.

The Nova 3’s battery also has the distinction of being the largest in its class. The display on the Nova 3 isn’t as bright as the one on the OnePlus 6, but it’s bright enough for most users to do their digital scrounging without being overpowered.

The display on the Nova 3 has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. While it’s not as high-res as the display on the OnePlus 6, it’s still bright enough for indoor use.

The Nova 3’s battery is a Lithium-ion core that maximizes battery life. It also has a nice design. The phone features an octa-core processor, a 16MP primary sensor, and a secondary 2MP monochrome sensor. It also has some very useful AI features.

EMUI 8.2 custom operating system

EMUI 8.2 is Huawei’s customized version of the Android operating system. It comes with a variety of features and customization options. Some of the features include the ability to uninstall apps, change the notification shade, and the ability to scroll down on the navigation bar.

EMUI is designed to improve overall performance. It also has features that make living with the software easier. Some of the features include GPU Turbo, which helps boost the processor’s performance and power efficiency. It also has an improved optimization, which can help to get better performance from selected games.

EMUI also has a built-in theme store, which can be used to customize your smartphone. This includes a variety of different themes to choose from. Some of the themes are based on popular games and apps, which may be worth checking out.

EMUI also comes with the ability to send a short message to a friend through a keyboard. This is not only an excellent feature but also one that is easy to use.

Build quality

Compared to Huawei’s previous midrange handsets, the Nova 3i has a better design and build quality, along with improved battery life. But while the Nova 3i is a good midrange phone, it isn’t the best in the price range.

The Nova 3i has an IPS LCD panel that supports 16.7 million colors and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. This is a good feature for a smartphone in this price range.

The screen is also bright and has average color accuracy. The Nova 3i also has good viewing angles. The camera takes decent pictures. However, the photos have some color accuracy issues. The pictures are also processed by the software, which gives them a soft look.

The Nova 3i cameras are also good, though they have some stability issues. The screen has a wide notch at the top, which isn’t great for gaming. The screen is also very wide, making games difficult to adapt to the screen’s real estate.
