The luxury segment was seeing a great deal of action, more than the flagship section for this issue. The majority of the Snapdragon 845 mobiles that launched this season belongs to this’flagship killer’ group carved out by OnePlus. The Huawei Nova 3 intends to conquer OnePlus in its own game. Together with four-cameras, a gorgeous glass layout and a great deal of AI-backed attributes, the Nova 3 is not taking any chances.


You will stop and gaze in the Huawei Nova 3 before picking this up. It is that great looking. Where many telephones go for solid colors in the plan, the Nova 3 provides a gradient of colors. The phone’s color changes color out of a deep purple to some chrome blue as you move upwards. The gradient change can be visible once you hold it in various angles producing vertical stripes of light. It requires the double tone design in the tilted 10 along with the Huawei P20 Guru and carries it up a notch, without moving all tacky and gaudy. Obviously, the telephone will make heads turn.

However, the simple fact remains that utilizing glass brings the sturdiness of their telephone. Huawei did not specify whether there’s Gorilla Glass protection. The phone will not have a good metal frame holding the glass in the front and the rear with no flex at all. That is a toast. The phone also includes a slender profile. I had no difficulty using it with a single hand. The glass adds a little heft but in addition, it increases the grip.

The back panel houses the double camera device that has a small bulge and a fingerprint sensor. While the bulge is simply too subtle to remove from the great looks of this telephone, it will are inclined to draw a great deal of dust. Huawei provides a clear case within the box which retains the glass back smudge-free. The compromised 3.5millimeter headphone jack stays along with the telephone is billed by means of a USB-Type C interface.


As a result of the notch on the top, the screen of this Huawei Nova 3 occupies nearly all of the actual estate up front. The minimum bezels makes the display fairly immersive and if you are in the dark with all the display on, it appears really bezel-less. It is an IPS LCD panel using FullHD+ resolution, so the successful pixel density is about 409 ppi. That is quite standard in notched screens. It is also not that broad permitting my tiny hands to achieve the opposite end without a lot of work. Because of this, the panel onto the Nova 3 is very practical. Huawei provides the choice to dial the display resolution to HD+ in order to conserve a bit of power.

In our evaluations, the screen clocked a brightness of 634 lux, which is nowhere near the OnePlus 6 that has an AMOLED panel along with a score of approximately 900 lux. The screen also includes a solid blueish tint on top and also the color temperature is about the warmer side. Huawei will supply a blue-light filter.


The business basically reproduces exactly the identical approach that created OnePlus devices hot. It’s powered with the flagship HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC that is designed in house by Huawei. There is also a co-processor indoors to manage AI workloads. Dependent on the chipset alone, it is apparent that it can not match the operation of a Snapdragon 845-powered apparatus. While on paper the Kirin 970 chipset can not get the job done as quickly as the Snapdragon 845, the 2 SoCs do provide functionality that’s unhindered and butter easy for the most part.

In addition you become 6GB LPDDR4 RAM and 128GB of all UFS storage. There is also expandable storage service through microSD cards up to 256GB, which is not there in its nearest competition, the OnePlus 6. Although, you need to pick between another SIM along with also a memory card, as it’s a hybrid . If you decide on two SIM cards, there is double VoLTE which allows you gain 4G connectivity in two different networks.

In real-world use, the Huawei Nova 3 is very fluid and breezy. I saw no cases of this telephone freezing or taking the time to launch programs. Games such as PubG Mobile loaded fairly eloquent, while Facebook, Instagram as well as the likes had a lag-free encounter. Even while gambling, the telephone does not heat up by far. Switching between programs also does not worry the telephone . The software of this telephone, however, is rather hefty. A movie through the Settings program will say the variety of features it packs. Characteristics like scanning a QR code to connect a different device to the Wi-Fi system, double instances of programs, battery use broken down to hardware and applications (very helpful!) , program lock and even much more. You won’t find the majority of these attributes in stock Android phones.


Two on the trunk, two front. In the rear is a 16MP main sensor with f/1.8 aperture alongside a 24MP secondary camera which shoots just in black again using f/1.8 aperture. Front is a 24MP sensor combined with a 2MP thickness sensor for selfies. The camera is also not only for shooting photographs this moment.

The camera program of this Huawei Nova 3 is equally intuitive and awkward at precisely the exact same moment. Even though the most popular choices are inside the range of the palms, going into the Pro style requires a few more swipes. A fantastic thing is you can switch off the’AI-fication’ of photographs. There is also hardware-level HDR based on Huawei.

The four cameras around the entire body of this Nova 3 is infused with machine learning as a result of the NPU from the Kirin 970 SoC. The NPU helps the back camera to find about 22 distinct scenes which includes meals, sunrise, blue heavens, shore, etc.. The front camera can also recognise up to eight distinct scenes. After knowing what you are shooting, Huawei goes forward and employs more filters to create photographs seem prettier. If it works, it seems really great, and when it does not, it will become an eyesore.

Below are two pictures taken at precisely the exact same moment. There is a noticeable gap in how the photographs turn out. The photograph shot normally is quite dull although the skies forward had all kinds of colors. The AI recognised I am shooting a sunrise and created the darker elements of these pictures (close to the structures ) brighter to increase the dynamic variety. But should you pixel peep the improved photograph, you’ll discover a serious lack of information.

Huawei offers you the choice of utilizing 3D lighting effects such as the iPhone 8 Plus comes with. The execution is nowhere near Apple’s however and you may resemble a cutout poster when utilizing it. There is also a wonder filter which appears to be a advertisement for a fairness cream. To put it differently, I’d refrain from using this style to shoot portrait shots. Rather, utilizing the expert manner as well as the default photograph mode is a lot better.

The double front camera of this telephone can also be among the highlights. The 24MP main sensor is accompanied from the 2MP thickness detector. There is also AI, HDR Pro and 3D light up front, together with bokeh style and beautification. Feature wise, this is as packaged as a selfie-centric telephone can get. Selfies also turn out fairly good, but a 1:1 harvest will show a serious lack of information in the AI manner. The HDR Pro manner works nicely here in order to light the face up against a harsh supply of lighting. The 3D lighting, nevertheless is much better left unused.


The Huawei Nova 3 includes a 3,750mAh battery that’s quite adequate for your bundle. For the time that I used the telephone, it readily lasted me a complete day. I mainly used the telephone to take photographs, navigate social media and play with PubG Mobile. While gaming for extended drains the battery a one-time session will not demand much juice. Additional you receive a fast-charging adapter which tops the battery up in about one hour.


It is a 2018 smartphone through. On the other hand, the execution of these attributes are somewhat inconsistent, particularly the AI improvements. The layout, although it looks magnificent, is not lasting and you’ll need to place a situation at the back that’s counterproductive. While the chip is satisfactorily powerful, it will not have the ability to outpace the Snapdragon 845-powered tablets. Then there is the software that isn’t the greatest on the market. The Huawei Nova 3 in Rs 34,999 is a direct competitor to the bottom version of this OnePlus 6. It is a fantastic choice if you don’t need to opt for the OnePlus 6, but maybe not the ideal replacement. Between them both, I favor the UI of this OnePlus 6 and it surely feels quicker than the Nova 3. The camera around the OnePlus 6 is not the standard with all means, but it’s constant.
