Huawei’s Nova 8 smartphone is a Huawei product. It’s from Huawei’s Nova line. On August 5, 2021, it was announced.
I can see how the Nova 8’s design could be a selling point. It reminds me of the Mate 40 Pro days when the reflective matte surface was first launched, and it’s now back, and possibly better. A dual-plating and filmmaking process designed to prevent glare when exposed to direct light is responsible for the remarkable quality. I didn’t want to use the case that came with it, but I despise fingerprints, so I guess that’s the first blow.
The huawei nova8 is a tad thinner because the display is curled once more (7.64mm). The camera bulge at the back isn’t overbearing, and as a contrasting element, it works well with the rest of the design. At the bottom, a reflected nova logo looks to have been laser etched. That’s some excellent fashion sense in action.
A 6.57-inch FHD+ OLED screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz serves as the main display. Even with the curved display, viewing angles were consistent (even factoring in direct sunlight scenarios).
Because color reproduction is superb, from blacks to contrast, I’d say the OLED display is of decent quality. The range is wide, and I have reason to believe the reported Delta E number is less than one. It’s made to watch videos in virtually any situation while maintaining great color accuracy and visibility. Moving around in Harmony OS was buttery smooth because of the 90Hz frame rate and the fast, fast 240Hz touch sampling rate. These display requirements will help you get things done swiftly if you want to get things done quickly.
4 Cameras, but only half worthwhile
This nova has a huge camera system that attracts notice right away. In comparison to the others, the main 64MP wide sensor is massive, giving the impression that one of the P50 module sets was jammed into the nova 8.
The sensor is larger than the standard 1/1.56-inch sensor because it has an f/1.9 aperture lens and PDAF. Both the indoor and outdoor daylight photographs were pleasing to the eye, with good color and detail results. It lacks depth in non-focused areas, and the HDR can be excessively harsh, making individual elements appear too shiny and over-sharpened, making it disturbing to look at. I strongly advise against utilizing automated HDR for better image quality on the primary sensor.
It’s good, but it needs to be priced better
I’m not saying the nova 8 is too expensive. I’m merely implying that the nova 8 is pricey compared to competitors who may provide better features (and services *cough*) or are likely only RM 100 apart.
It’s a nice, tastefully average phone that earns points for providing a seamless day-to-day experience and attractive appearance. It more closely resembles a mid-ranger than a premium mid-ranger, given the trade-offs. The excellent OLED screen and 66W charging are simply brought down to earth by an easily outrun processor and half-baked secondary camera sensors, making it too nail-bitingly difficult t recommend over such a tightly competitive under RM 2K market.
