Huawei Nova 2i crushes its opponent Vivo V7+ in the mid-range segment, carrying more values than ever
It’s clear that smartphone manufacturers are now going full speed ahead on the bezel-less display trend. But if that’s all your smartphone has, is it enough? Having a bezel-less display is definitely eye-catching and great to look at, but it’s still the internal hardware and software that makes the smartphone truly useful.
Stunning Fullview display
Vivo made the V7+ with a bezel-less display in mind, but left its resolution at a mere HD level of 720 x 1440. It’s like having a huge canvas to paint on, but you’re using colour pencils to draw art. For the Huawei Nova 2i, it’s got a similar Fullview display size but packs a whole lot more pixel with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080.
In fact, Huawei Nova 2i could be one of the best display that offered in mid-range nowadays. The full HD resolution with the newly trending bezel-less design transforms the way of watching videos, reading books, playing games, browsing web pages and social media. The bezel-less display creates an immersing feeling that makes you feel like you’re inside the movie than just simply looking at it.
Where beauty comes with strong personalities
Apart from that, the V7+’s display is now hindered by what might be the most poorly selected processor. The Snapdragon 450 isn’t all that bad, it can definitely hold its own, but as a low-end processor, its performance can only go so far. It may be an octa-core processor, but it only has a clock speed of 1.8GHz for all cores. Enter the Kirin 659 processor on the Nova 2i, it has 4 cores with clock speed of 2.36GHz and another 4 cores with 1.7GHz clock speed. Couple that with Huawei’s Machine Learning Algorithm, the Nova 2i stays fast even after 18 months of usage.
Along with a 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM effortlessly runs multiple tasks efficiently. HUAWEI nova 2i runs Android 7-based EMUI 5.1 OS and Huawei’s Ultra Memory puts you in the driver’s seat of your life.
One Step Ahead on Camera
Having a high-resolution camera isn’t everything, how many girls would actually prefer a detailed picture? The Vivo V7+’s 16MP camera may capture detailed photos, but what good is it if it cannot capture the essence of the moment? The same goes for the Vivo V7+’s front 24MP camera.
Once again, Huawei has decided to include a dual camera system for selfie lovers, as it comprises of a 13MP+2MP sensor, which the lower resolution sensor is used to measure depth of field to create a bokeh in portrait shots, not to mention the feature to re-adjust a photo’s focus point after taking the shot. Because there’s the same 2MP camera on the front, selfies from this device will also have the DSLR-like bokeh effect. HUAWEI nova 2i’s front-facing, dual-camera uses the power of amazing lenses and cutting-edge camera technology to achieve breathtaking bokeh, better lighting and radiant portraits. Naturally beautiful, naturally you. Simply tap anywhere on the screen to assign focus and blur the background.
Furthermore, the selfie toning flash on the front will also intelligently detect the environment’s lighting and automatically adjust the flash’s brightness. It comes with a 2-level brightness automatically adjusts brightness according to environmental conditions. High-CRI light mimics sunlight, bringing out the natural beauty of every skin tone. A 120-degree lighting angle offers wider lighting coverage. And the “butterfly lighting” portrait technology, enhances facial features like a professional portrait.
On top of that, Huawei Nova 2i offers a series of filters that are loved by youngsters who familiar with Insta story and Snapchat! It has 18 sets of preinstalled templates and fun make-up which allows you to make your selfie funnier and attractive.
