Auto Change Wallpaper Lock Screen Huawei P10
The mid-budget line nova received from its creators not only a dual main camera (hello, an imitation of the open aperture and other cool chips!), But also a front-end camera with a giant resolution of 20 megapixels. Was it the developers who relied on the photo capabilities, or is this smartphone in a metal case and priced just over 20 thousand rubles have other advantages? We tested the new product and boldly declare. this gadget is worth the money.

Huawei nova 2 is enclosed in a compact metal case with a fingerprint on the rear panel. A slightly curved screen flows into rounded edges and immediately into the back surface of the case. the smartphone consists of smooth lines, there are no sharp corners.
The back surface of the gadget is practically devoid of details: only a slightly protruding dual camera and a fingerprint scanner stand out. Antenna strips located in the upper and lower parts of the housing are not particularly prominent.
The new USB Type-C is charging, the connector is located in the center of the bottom. To his right is a speaker, to his left is an audio jack.
The control buttons are located on the right side: on. lower, volume changes. higher.
Under the display there is only a silver Huawei logo, on-screen control buttons. The speaker and front camera are located as usual. above the display.
Variants of body colors are very interesting: the test was visited by a gadget of a calm dark gray color, but the promo photo flashed blue, lime and pink Huawei nova 2. The green color looks very unusual. tender and fresh, and in pink nova 2, “a new star selfie ”, looks extremely organic.
This five-inch smartphone is very compact and lightweight: with a small diagonal, it has virtually no frames around the screen, and the thickness is only 6.9 mm. The gadget weighs 143 grams.
Despite the fact that the sides and the rear panel are made seamlessly as a single part of the body, they have different textures. The back of the smartphone is matte and more slippery, and the edges and ends are visually glossy, but more “sticky” to the touch. it is convenient to hold the smartphone in your hand.
It could be expected that the matte surface would not get very dirty, but nova 2 collects fingerprints and scuffs, although not as much as glass smartphones, but noticeably. However, dirt is rubbed off easily.
The five-inch IPS-display Huawei nova 2 with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels shows excellent brightness. on the street you can safely work with it even in sunny weather. Due to the high resolution and small diagonal, there are no complaints about sharpness, as well as to viewing angles.
The color rendering setting is very flexible. with the help of the color wheel, there are presets for cold or warm colors.
The operating system Huawei nova 2 is a fresh Android 7 Nougat and a proprietary shell EMUI 5.1, which by default has no application menu, only desktops with icons. If the menu is needed, it can be returned in the settings.
Starting with version 5.1, EMUI has an algorithm for optimizing the operation of Ultra Memory. the system remembers which applications you open most often, and preloads the necessary data into RAM. The system is self-learning, the effect is noticeable after a couple of days of use. although the interface itself is very smart.
Curious is the automatic sorting of photos ands by the places where they are taken, and the people on them. Well, another cute feature of the firmware is the automatic change of wallpaper on the lock screen. Each time you unlock, a new picture from the database appears on the screen.
A basic set of software is preinstalled. an audio player, voice recorder, flashlight, file manager and other utilities, as well as Instagram and Facebook clients. For a small diagonal, this is not very relevant, but nova 2 also has functions for easy one-handed operation. shifting the keyboard left or right and scaling the screen.
The device is in operation
The smartphone has an eight-core Kirin 659 processor. The built-in memory is 64 GB, and by refusing to use a second SIM card, you can add a microSD card. RAM is also enough. 4 GB.
A tangible, and in the literal sense, the problem with the speed of the smartphone is one. it heats up in games and under loads in general. As for the smooth operation, brakes and freezes rarely occur when starting applications and switching between them, but in general nova 2 works smartly, exactly on its points in benchmarks. The loses without the slightest difficulty, in the browser with five or six simultaneously open tabs it does not slow down.
Godfire: Rise of Prometheus: smooth graphics on medium settings and no problems with performance. it plays comfortably. World of Tanks Blitz: at maximum settings, the smartphone does not pull: FPS is kept at 15–20, the picture is twitching, the case heats up. At medium settings, it’s about 30 fps, the picture is smoother, the heating is preserved.
Synthetic Test Results
The device is equipped with a DAC AK4376A. When listening to a FLAC track in the monitor headphones, we caught the difference with a smartphone with a normal sound path. The sound of nova 2 is more detailed, and the stereo effects are better distinguishable. But with inexpensive headphones, the difference will not be so great.
The dual camera. a special feature of Huawei. appeared in the nova line: a tandem of a color 12-megapixel module (f / 1.8 aperture) with a black and white eight-megapixel camera was installed on the smartphone. In addition to improving the quality of shooting, such a system allows you to simulate the open aperture and blur the background behind the subject.
In nova 2, this turns out to be very natural, despite small flaws, when the borders of the subject are slightly blurred. The camera also imitates a bokeh effect that looks like on a “DSLR”.
In the afternoon, nova 2 shoots almost perfectly: excellent color reproduction, high definition.
When shooting at night, the sharpness deteriorates a little, and there are highlights, but in general. also more than decent. The frames are not blurry, with color rendering everything is fine. The inevitable “soap” from noise reduction is noticeable, but here this effect is uncritical.
In portrait mode, the pictures often come out blurry, but if you managed to make a sharp shot, the image looks spectacular. A closer look reveals not very neat borders at the points where the subject is separated from the background.
Portrait mode off Portrait mode on
The difference between shooting in HDR mode and without it is not so obvious: the picture is only getting a little lighter.
HDR mode off HDR mode on
The main camera perfectly captures text in automatic mode:
The twenty-megapixel front camera is equipped with timer functions, gesture recognition and selfie enhancement. It shoots perfectly. the picture is clear (otherwise it would be surprising at such a resolution) and with a huge amount of detail. Look, for example, at this picture. each leaf and petal is visible.
Huawei nova 2 can record in Full HD resolution and with a frame rate of 30 fps.
The nova 2 card slot is combined. either two nano-SIM, or one nano-SIM and a memory card. Given the decent amount of internal memory (64 GB), the choice will not be too painful.
nova 2 demonstrates the stable operation of all wireless interfaces: the connection is stable, the Internet. adjusted for the operator. is fast. NFC is missing, but there is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and both work as expected.
GPS finds satellites very quickly, in just a few seconds. Cold start. half a minute.
The battery capacity of Huawei nova 2 is 2950 mAh. In the playback mode (“Flight” mode, maximum brightness), the smartphone lasts a little less than six hours. 5 hours 45 minutes. In games. a little over three.
For life, more than enough, but you have to charge every day, if you use it actively: sit on social networks, take photos, read. The advantages of autonomy include support for fast charging.
Huawei nova 2. the smartphone is very pretty. With small dimensions and low price (in translation to rubles. a little more than 20 thousand), he received from his creators a cool dual main camera and an outstanding front, beautiful metal case and an excellent screen. You can close your eyes to shortcomings like heating in games. the line is not in the same price category to require flagship performance. Otherwise, the gadget is pleasant, autonomy is modest, but it does not sag, and workmanship is only pleasing, as is multifunctional stable firmware.
