Huawei Nova Y70
The Huawei Nova Y70 is a refresh to the P series from Huawei flagship devices, which ran into a little trouble when it went it got kicked out of Android. 120Hz super AMOLED screen, a primary 64MP quad camera set up, 66W fast charging, 50W wireless charging, a huge battery at 4360mAh, and the new flagship Snapdragon 888 4G chipset. Other than lacking 5G, it’s as good a flagship as any other. It ticks pretty much every box, and then some. This phone is certainly a flagship powerhouse.
The Huawei Nova Y70 comes with a 6.6-inch 120Hz OLED screen with a dew drop notch design for the selfie camera. It’s a beauty, with very even bezels and a very narrow chin, with a screen-to-body ratio of 84.1%. It has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and supports HD10+ which makes it an absolute delight to consume media with. It has a plastic front and back and an LCD front panel. It is quite bright and vivid, peaking at 500 nits. It’s not rated for dust and splash protection, but it’s safe to assume it’s splash-proof. Fortunately, it keeps the headphone jack. It has a fast fingerprint sensor, conveniently placed on the side house with a power button. It has a loud downward-facing speaker, offering great sound when playing media.
The Huawei Nova Y70 comes with the midrange Mediatek Helio P35. It has a Cortex Octa-core CPU paired with a PowerVR GPU, with storage options of 4 GB for RAM & 128/256 GB for ROM. It however comes with a hybrid expandable memory option, which shares the slot with the sim card. It is running the latest EMUI 12 but without Goggle Play Services. Despite losing the core services, the performance still feels very fast and premium. Huawei has really tried to bridge the gap after being kicked out of Android but they have made tremendous progress bridging the gap & offering a working alternative. Everything feels fast, fluid, and rich in color.
The Huawei Nova Y70 has a quad camera arrangement on the back. It comes with an excellent 48 MP primary sensor, with 12MP picture binning for those excellent daylight photos. It has a 5MP ultra-wide with a 120˚ FOV, for great landscape and group photos. There is a 2MP depth periscope lens, giving it great immersion when it comes to those close-up photos. The video can support up to 1080p video at 30/60fps fps, with HDR supports & gyro-EIS stability assistance. The selfie camera is a decent 8MP wide sensor, capable of 1080p video at 30fps. The selfies and videos are great and well exposed.
The Huawei Nova Y70 has a decent 22.5W fast charging, which can charge the phone to 100% in about an hour and 30 mins. That is in addition to the fact that it also comes with a Li-Po 6000mAh non-removable battery. This is easily a 2 day’s worth of battery. There is no wireless or reverse wired charging. It, unfortunately, does not support NFC for contactless paying.
Similarly, priced phones would include the Xiaomi Redmi 10, Tecno Camon 18i, Samsung Galaxy M12, and the Infinix Note 11. the main talking points would be screen and battery, but considering the phone does not come with native Google Mobile Service, it’s important to consider that some apps might be missing, like Maps, YouTube, and Gmail. They can however be sideloaded in a rather straightforward manner so no need for alarm.
For the price, it’s a great device. Superior design, nice cameras, and a huge battery. Some people might feel a little skeptical about Harmony OS/EMUI, but it’s reassuring that it’s not any different from other Android skins so the experience may not vary much. Comes in Chrystal Blue, Midnight Black, and Pearl White.
