Huawei Nova 2 Lite and Huawei Y5 Lite are among the cheapest phones from Huawei that are available in Nepal right now. But are they still worth after over a year since their official launch? Let’s check out what Huawei Nova 2 Lite and Huawei Y5 Lite bring different to the already competitive budget price segment.
Huawei Nova 2 Lite
Huawei Nova 2i was a great success in the Nepali market. Following that, even the Nova 3i was a huge hit. So, Huawei decided to drop the Nova 2 Lite as a toned-down variant of the Huawei Nova 2i.
The Nova 2 Lite features a large 5.99″ IPS LCD display with an HD+ resolution of 1440 x 720 resolution. This is a no notch display, so, the phone is actually quite large, and does have bezels. Compared to other budget devices available in the market this one does look outdated. It features a dual-camera setup in the rear, which consists of a 13 MP lens with f/2.2 aperture and a 2 MP depth sensor. The selfie camera rests at 8 MP. It also has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The phone is powered by a 1.4 GHz MSM8937 chip. Also, it has 3 GB of RAM. This phone offers 32 GB internal storage but has a dedicated microSD card slot. The hardware is also not the strongest either. It packs a 3000 mAh battery, with micro USB 2.0. This phone is also known as Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 internationally.
