Review of the Huawei Nova 8

The Huawei Nova 8 Model is the most awaited Huawei product line. The series generally takes the best of existing flagships and repackages them for a younger market. The Huawei nova 8i was a bittersweet embodiment of this, nearly making me give up and

Anticipate its superior sister, the Huawei nova8. Surprisingly, the Huawei nova 8 offers a more significant feature set than the nova 8i. In this review, I will discuss why I think this is the better Huawei smartphone.

Unboxing and Build

Unboxing your Huawei Nova 8i was simple. You’re presumably familiar with Huawei’s retail cartons. The phone, a silicon case, a type-A to Type-C cable, and a 66w Huawei SuperCharge are all included. I’ll expand on this charger later. Keep taking mind that the retail package does not contain an earphone. Like the Nova 8i, but slimmer and lighter. Its general design is unlike the nova 8i; thus, do these two items belong in the same series?

The 6.57-inch OLED screen has a thin chin & forehead bezel. Because of its curved edges look like a smaller Huawei Mate40 Pro, minus the camera cutout. Lastly, the nova eight design looks to diverge from the nova 8i. It’s on the side, or the design emphasizes the 64mp camera. This helps to showcase one of the phone’s most delicate features, aside from its fantastic performance.


The Huawei Nova 8 has a 6.57-inch OLED screen. The display is excellent and one of the finest I’ve used in this price range. Its 90Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate make it perfect for both gaming and multimedia consumption.

One thing I noticed about its display is its color accuracy. This is important for content makers since you want to view (and post-produce) a photo or movie precisely as you saw it. While I wouldn’t say I like curved screens, the Nova 8 is convenient when activated by the screen gestures. The curvature aids navigation and exploring the phone’s fluid UI.

Chipset and Performance

7nm Kirin 820E powers the Huawei Nova 8. Despite just having a hexacore CPU, the nova 8i performs substantially better. I had no issues with PUBG Mobile, Sausage Man, or Call of Duty Mobile. While talent is essential in these games, the phone’s 240 Hz touch sampling rate & 90 Hz refresh rate assist a lot. But I have a significant issue with that. I think I should bring this to your attention. I can’t seem to get PC Mark or certain apps via Petal Search or AppGallery. However, I keep receiving parsing issues. Nonetheless, for your sense of how the HUAWEI nova 8 Blush Gold compares to the nova 7i, I some benchmark data I was able to obtain.

Camera Performance

The nova 8’s robust cameras are one of its most outstanding features. Comparing it to the nova 8i, it appears to have the same back cameras but improved capabilities. The primary camera can capture 4k30 and 1080p120 for slow motion. Despite having identical back cameras, the nova 8i cannot accomplish this.

The front camera of the nova eight can snap images in 4K quality but not 4K video. It’s ideal for selfies and even slow-motion video selfies. These features alone dwarf the nova 8i, making it an excellent buy. Here are some images were taken using the nova 8i and Nova 8. As you can see, nova 8’s color reproduction, detail, contrast, & saturation are superior.

Battery Performance

The Nova 8 has a 3800mAh battery. It lasted 13 hours 26 minutes on medium to severe usage with 20% battery life remaining. I spent almost 5 hours on the screen, mostly browsing social media, taking photographs and videos, and playing Sausage Man and PUBG. On the plus side, it charges quickly. The 66W Huawei SuperCharge takes roughly 37 minutes to charge this completely.
