    Huawei nova 2 lite Review – Capturing moments with double the cameras

    Aiming the youth market, Huawei’s nova series has always been designed with high performance and reliable quality in mind. After the success of nova 2 and nova 2i (launched last October), Huawei has launched another low-priced yet powerful product – nova 2 lite in Malaysia today. We are lucky to be able to test out the phone before its official launch so here is our Huawei nova 2 lite review!

    The Design and Display

    Despite being the lite version of the Huawei nova 2, the nova 2 lite is having a different design compared to nova 2 (which is more updated to the recent market trends). The device is featuring a sleek body with a 5.99-inch HD FullView display (18:9 ratio), while on the back it uses IMT painting technique to strengthen the durability and gives out a premium feel.

    One of the models we get is in black with a matte finish, and the another one comes in shiny glass-like blue colour. The blue colour version is definitely more eye-catching, but it is quite fingerprint-magnet so you will probably want to get it a cover or case. The device is super light-weight too with only 155g measured. Another detail that caught my attention is that it is having 3 card slot which supports 2 SIM cards as well as a microSD card.

    Huawei nova 2 lite specifications

    • Size: 158.3 x 76.7 x 7.8 mm
    • Weight: 155 g
    • Color: Black, Blue
    • Display: 5.99-inch HD FullView display
    • Resolution: 1440 x 720 pixels
    • CPU: Snapdragon 430 Octa-core Processor
    • OS: Android 8.0 Oreo
    • Memory: 3GB RAM 32GB ROM (expandable up to 256GB using microSD)
    • Camera:
    • 8MP Front Camera
    • 13MP2MP Dual-lens Rear Camera

    As our title suggests, the cameras can be said to be the biggest selling point of Huawei nova 2 lite. It features 13MP 2MP dual camera on the rear so you could snap pictures with stunning wide aperture Bokeh effects easily. The PDAF fast-focusing rear camera also allows you to capture exciting moments anytime instantly.

    For the front camera, nova 2 lite packs an 8MP front camera with Smart selfie toning flash (whew, the selfie lovers would like it so much). In case you don’t how the Smart selfie toning flash improves your selfies, it allows the device to automatically detect the lighting on your surface and cleverly adjust the level of brightness for a more natural-looking selfie. It improves the quality of selfies you took under low-light conditions too.

    Also, you can find AR lens – a fun feature on nova 2 lite. It would detect and crop you out in real-time so you could change the background or add funny cosplay filters as you like. The device is featuring various selfie-taking modes such as audio control as well. However, the rear camera only supports the function of funny cosplay and there is no pro mode available.

    Performance and Battery Life

    With Snapdragon 430 as the processor and 3GB RAM, you can’t expect the device to run graphics and performance demanding games perfectly. But the good thing is, you still can run most of the popular mobile games well under the lower settings. For example, we could run the recent released PUBG Mobile and The Sims Mobile without any lagging but its default graphics setting is set to low (for PUBG Mobile).

    There is also a built-in app called Gaming Suite that optimizes gaming performance or energy use during gaming. Using it, you can filter notifications or lock the off-screen navigation keys for an interrupted gaming experience. The steps to activate it is simple, you only need to add the game to the suite and it will automatically activate when you enter the game.

    The 32GB ROM storage can store all the essential apps we need and if you need extra storage, don’t worry as you can expand it up to 256GB via a microSD. The nova 2 lite features a 3000 mAh battery that allows you to go through a day of regular use easily. However using it to perform heavy gaming continuously only gives you about 3 hours of battery life.

    Other features

    The device comes with an interesting Karaoke mode, where you can hear your voice singing from the headset during the usage of karaoke or a live video streaming application. Not to mention that the device supports both face unlock and fingerprint unlock too!

    Coming with all the nice features above, Huawei nova 2 lite is only priced at RM 799 (about 204 USD) so it is quite a steal if you’re in need of a new smartphone. It is available in 2 colours – Black and Blue (with a shiny surface on the back), you can visit Huawei retailer stores or their official website if you are interested!

    Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 (Nova 2 Lite) review

    When Huawei presented flagship P20 and P20 Pro, they also unveiled the new Huawei Y7 Prime 2018.

    It was announced without any pomp, which is logical since it’s not new at all – Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 is, essentially, Huawei Nova 2 Lite, which had been announced two weeks prior to the event. Basically, Huawei Mate 10 Lite story repeats itself here. One model has different names in different countries, which can create confusion. Okay, now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about the device itself.

    Technical specifications of Huawei Y7 Prime 2018

    • Display: 5.99″, IPS, 1440×720 pixels, aspect ratio: 18:9
    • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, 8-core (4 cores with a frequency of 1.4 GHz and 4 cores with 1.1 GHz, Cortex-A53)
    • Graphics Accelerator: Adreno 505
    • RAM: 3 GB
    • Storage: 32 GB
    • Support for microSD memory cards: up to 256 GB
    • Wireless networks: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 (LE)
    • Main camera: dual 13 2 Mp, f/2.2, PDAF
    • Selfie camera: 8 megapixels, f/2.0
    • Battery: 3000 mAh
    • Dimensions: 158.3 × 76.7 × 7.8 mm
    • Weight: 155 g


    The phone comes in a white cardboard box with a colorful Y7 logo.

    Inside there’s a power adapter (5V/1A), USB/MicroUSB cable and a SIM/SD card eject tool.

    Design, materials and build quality

    My device is black, but there are also gold and blue models available.

    Curiously, the blue model has the same iridescent back panel as Huawei P20 Lite. The latter was made of glass, not plastic, like Y7 Prime 2018. Good to know that the engineers found the way to replicate the effect with different materials.

    But now onto the overall look. There are no eccentricities here. Both back panel and the frame around the device are made of plastic.

    The matte black doesn’t catch the eye, but the frame is glossy, with dark hues. Looks alright.

    On the front is an elongated screen with small bezels on top and bottom, which are asymmetrical – the bottom frame is slightly larger than the top. Bezels to the sides are rather wide for a modern device.

    The build quality is excellent, with no creaks and squeaks. There aren’t any gaps. The protective film is already on the display, but there’s no oleophobic coating.

    The back panel is a fingerprint magnet.

    Elements’ Configuration

    Above the screen we can find proximity and light sensors, a selfie camera, an earpiece speaker and an LED flash.

    At first I didn’t even notice the flash and though that the window hides sensors. It is masked surprisingly well.

    There’s also a Huawei logo below the screen.

    On the right side is the power/unlock button and the volume key.

    On the left is one hybrid slot for two nano SIM cards and a microSD memory card.

    Thankfully, you won’t have to sacrifice one SIM in order to find place for a memory card.

    On the lower edge were have 3.5 mm audio jack, microUSB port, microphone and a speaker.

    Ports of microUSB and mini Jack are slightly shifted from the centre downwards, just like in Samsung smartphones.

    On the back of the device in the upper left corner is a camera block with the main and auxiliary cameras and an LED flash. The block has a similar frame to the smartphone’s. An additional microphone is placed to the right of the block.

    Below is the round pad of the fingerprint scanner.

    At the very bottom is the company logo and service information.

    Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 ergonomics

    Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 is a smartphone with a large display (5.99″), which means it itself is sizable. But the mass of the device and the width are small – 155 grams and 7.8 mm, respectively.

    Using the device with one hand is not very convenient.

    But at the same time, the mechanical volume and power buttons, as well as the fingerprint scanner, are located where they are supposed to, and are easy to reach.

    The display diagonal is 5.99 inches, with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The resolution is small – 1440×720 pixels (HD). The matrix is IPS.

    Is the resolution noticeable? In general, not. Just don’t look at smaller elements on the screen.

    The colors are pleasant, the contrast is not very high; it is rather balanced. Auto brightness adjustment works okay. The brightness level is alright, but the level of minimum brightness could be a little lower.

    The one thing that is a definite negative is the reduction/increase in contrast when shifting the device diagonally.

    In the settings, you can change the color temperature of the screen and activate the eye protection mode. The manufacturer even equipped the smartphone with the function of automatically reducing the screen resolution to save energy. Although … does it make sense? You can’t make it any lower, can you?

    In general, the screen is okay. It is enough for most tasks.


    This is a mid-ranger, and the hardware is what you might expect.

    Surprisingly, the smartphone does not have the Kirin processor installed, but the old 28-nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chip. There are eight Cortex-A53 cores. Four operate with a maximum clock frequency of 1.4 GHz, and the remaining four with 1.1 GHz. Graphical accelerator is Adreno 505.

    The results of synthetic tests are attached below.

    In general, this chip and this phone are more than sufficient for usual tasks even in 2018.

    But why install it in a new smartphone in 2018? Yes, it’s inexpensive, but still. It would be more reasonable to use, say, 625-m Dragon. Oh well.

    The device can easily cope with typical tasks and simple arcade games, although you can see micro freezes when running apps and very rarely in the interface as well. In heavy games you won’t get far without lowering the graphics intensity.

    In general, no surprises – the performance is typical for this segment.

    The amount of RAM is 3 GB, and the storage is 32 GB. Of 32 GB of flash drive, the user has 24.79 GB of free space. But I remind you that it can be expanded with a microSD memory card with a capacity of up to 256 GB without having to sacrifice a second SIM card.

    Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 cameras

    The main camera in this smartphone is dual. The main module has a resolution of 16 megapixels and f/2.2 aperture, and an additional 2 megapixels.

    The photographs are mediocre, with low detail. Autofocusing occurs at an average speed. In addition, the smartphone has problems focusing on objects close to the camera’s eye.

    The auxiliary module is used to create images with a wide aperture effect. Can’t say that it works great, but it’s nice to know that its there.

    You can shoot video in FullHD resolution. Quality is, once again, mediocre. No electronic stabilisation, no accelerated video.

    The selfie camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels (f/2.0) is okay.

    There is nothing new in the camera interface. There’s the minimum set of shooting modes and not much more. Swipe right to change the modes, swipe left for advanced settings of the camera.

    Unlocking methods

    Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 can be unlocked using a familiar fingerprint scanner and trendy face recognition. The scanner, as usual in Huawei smartphones, is incredibly fast and accurate.

    There is a usual set of functions for which you can use a fingerprint sensor; control the camera, answer a call, turn off the alarm, open the notification panel and view photos in the gallery.

    The process of unlocking with face recognition is the same as in the Huawei P20 Lite.

    The only difference is that you cannot activate the device when you lift it – you have to press the power button.

    It’s nice to see this function work so good in a budget device. You won’t fool the phone with a photo because it measures the depth of the image. The phone won’t recognize you in the dark, which is fine – there’s always the fingerprint scanner.

    Battery life

    What do you think, for how long does a 6-inch smartphone with a 3000 mAh battery work? Yeah, not very long.

    The time of active screen use using 4G and Wi-Fi varied from 4.5 to 5 hours. With a constant Wi-Fi connection, it is 5 to 6 hours. In general, the smartphone will work for a whole day with moderate use.

    There is no support for fast charging, so be prepared to wait for 2 hours for it to fully charge.

    Sound and communications

    The earpiece speaker is loud enough, the quality is good.

    The multimedia speaker is loud, but medium and high frequencies prevail, while the low ones are practically absent.

    The sound in the headphones is unexceptional. In the settings there is an equalizer and other audio effects, but they do not fundamentally change the situation. Low and high frequencies are weak, the medium frequencies are audible.

    There aren’t many wireless modules here. Wi-Fi 802.11 (b/g/ n) works without problems. The GPS module needs a little more than a minute for more or less correct positioning, but even after this time, errors occur from time to time. The smartphone finds the cellular network quickly and there were no problems with it. Bluetooth 4.2 (LE) also works as it should. The NFC module for contactless payments is absent.

    Firmware and software

    The operating system of the smartphone is Android 8.0 with the proprietary EMUI version 8.0 shell.

    The shell can be customized not only with standard themes from the built-in store, but also with downloaded themes from other sources. In addition, you can change the desktop style, navigation bar, use gestures and turn on one-hand control mode. The latter, by the way, is really useful here.


    Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 is a fine smartphone for those who seek an affordable device with a big display, good build quality, stable software and the newest OS.

    The phone has a fast fingerprint scanner and can recognize its owner’s face. There’s even a full-fledged slot for two SIM and an SD card. Sure, there are cons as well. Among those is unimpressive battery life, run-of-the-mill cameras and weak hardware.

    Only time will tell if Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 will be able to fight numerous rivals in this price range.
