The Huawei Nova 3i ,for me, was a really nice smartphone. It was a great performer,with a nice display, good cameras, and most of all, had a stunning design. The price was also okay for all that you were getting. But with the new year upon us, the midranger is now on sale for just Rs 35,990.
For the price, you are getting a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 with a 2.5D curved glass on top. It’s a great display paired with an Octa-Core Kirin 710 processor and Mali-G51 MP4 GPU. However, most people will be interested in that gorgeous glass design of the smartphone. Personally, this is one of the best-looking devices in the category.
To summarize the experience, it comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. A 3340mAh battery powers the device. You get Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.2 on top and a fingerprint sensor + face unlock for security. Finally, there is the headphone jack and a micro USB port at the bottom.

Cameras are another huge factor when if you had a mind set on buying this phone. It’s a 24+2MP setup at the front and 16+2MP at the back, a total of four sensors. Pictures come out decent, colors were vibrant with good details while portrait mode could use an update. The AI performs decent as well.
Videos come out fine, it doesn’t record 4k videos, but it does shoot at 1080p@60fps. Selfie cameras were also pretty good, with detailed shots, satisfying colors and an overall great pictures. It also gets a long-lasting battery, if you thinking of upgrading from a Nova 2i, this will last longer. Although it does lack any fast charging support.
