We reviewed the Huawei Nova 3i a couple of weeks ago and we are absolutely in love with it. It has a lot to offer for a price of Rs 38,900! From a superb quad-camera set up to 128GB of built-in memory, the phone has it all. So today in this article, we will be discussing the strengths of the Nova 3i and the features that set it apart from the competition.
Quad-camera set up
The Huawei Nova 3i packs a 4 camera set up with a pair on each side of the device. At the back, we have a combination a 16MP and a 2MP sensor. At the front, there is a 24MP selfie shooter with a secondary 2MP sensor. This setup delivers sharper, natural snaps in general as well as portraits with more depth of field. The overall picture quality, too, is great and I am highly impressed with it. Both the rear as well as the selfie shooter take exceptional photos. For a mid-tier device, this level of quality is impressive!
The low-light performance is also not that bad! Although it could have been better, the phone lives up to the mark. Besides the phone comes jam-packed with tons of features and modes. Modes like the Portrait, Aperture, Pro, Time-lapse, Slow-Mo, AR-lens, and Night Mode are all here. The Nova 3i’s camera also comes with AI integration out of the box. The camera uses AI to better optimize the scene and learn your preferences.
Overall, the cameras on the Huawei Nova 3i are amazing. It is one of the key strengths of the device! For the price, you are paying, it is one of the better, if not the best, camera in this range.
Superb Gaming Performance
The Huawei Nova 3i packs an octa-core Hi-Silicon Kirin 710 processor along with the Mali-G51 MP4 GPU. The SoC is backed by 4GB of RAM and a whopping 128GB of internal storage. With this kind of horsepower, the phone can easily bust through come major games. During my testing, I played games like PUBG, Asphalt 8/9, Tekken, and Clash Royale. The Nova 3i was easily able to handle all these games. I didn’t notice any visible lags or stutters during my session. The included game suite is another bonus for all you gaming fanatics. It helps block out any interference during the escapade! Besides this, there is also the inclusion of GPU Turbo. A software tweak, that allows you to get better gaming performance. That said, the phone does heat up quite a bit while gaming. It is normal and nothing to be alarmed of!
Tons of Storage
As mentioned earlier, the Huawei Nova 3 has 128GB of built-in storage. The memory of the phone can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 256GB. This inclusion is amazing on Huawei’s part! At a time when flagship phones are offering 64GB as their base storage, Huawei is offering a whopping 128GB memory on their mid-tier phones.
For someone who needs a ton of storage like me, this inclusion can be a boon. See I am a person who loves taking a ton of pictures but hates deleting or transferring them. I see a picture as a symbol of memories and the good times! And to have 128GB storage means that I don’t have to delete/transfer my memories. And to me that is important!
I know I can always buy a micro-sd card and use it as a majority of the devices support it. But having a high-capacity storage built-in is always something that is welcomed. Besides photos, I also have a ton of music and videos stored up in there. And with games and app getting big as they are, having a lot of storage is amazing. And oh! talking about apps you should see my app list. You will start to wonder how can anyone use these many apps. Well, I do and the extra storage helps keep things that way!
With all that, the Huawei Nova 3i is an amazing smartphone. Targeted towards youth, the phone brings the needed features such as great cameras, tons of storage, and great gaming performance in a single package. For a price of Rs 38,900 you just can’t go wrong with the phone. No wonder it is one of the hottest premium mid-tier smartphones you can buy right now in Nepal.
