The Huawei Nova 2 and its sibling come with an all-metal body, U-shape antenna design, dual-camera on the back (12MP+8MP), 20MP shooter on the front for better selfies and many more. There are also five color options and most of them will be at taste of young customers. As you can see, the Nova 2 has everything meeting requirements of young users. Plus, it’s the first Huawei mid-range handset sporting a dual-camera. The latter is considered to be the selling point of this handset and we decided to come in with a detailed review of the newly launched Huawei Nova 2.
Huawei Nova 2 Front Camera
As this phone has been designed for younger customers, it’s quite logical why it comes with a ton of selfie settings, filters, watermarks and other camera features. For example, there are 10 adjustable modes for capturing photos in a portrait mode.
Apart of this, there are up to 9 filters as well as 56 types of watermarks.
You can even take panoramic selfies.
The camera features allow you anything you want. Say, you can choose any of myriads of functions including mirror selfie, gesture camera, double-click for shooting, screen off and many more.
There is only a single camera on the front, but it supports background blurring function.
That works well but it can’t be compared with the experience of dual-cameras. Just take a peek at the shoulders in the photo below and you’ll understand the edges are not clear.
The front camera also makes beautification effects that allow sharing the selfies once they are taken.
The Huawei Nova 2 is priced at 2499 yuan ($365). This phone many key features, but its selling point still remains the front shooter. In this sense, the Huawei Nova 2 has been made to compete with other selfie-focused phones such as the Oppo R11 launched recently. The photo samples above and below should be helpful when choosing between Oppo and Huawei. Personally, I think the Huawei Nova 2 is the most worthy rival to the selfie king, Oppo R11.
