Huawei nova 2 Plus

Selfie and wefie are still a huge thing thanks to the social media and the ever advancing camera technology. I could still remember back in those days when phones come with a VGA camera at the front for the purpose of 3G video calls. Little do we expect that the potato camera at the front has now become one of the factors when it comes to choosing a smartphone.

Today what we have in our labs is the Huawei nova 2 Plus. As the targetted customer is youngsters, the device packs a 20 MP front camera and dual rear camera for the best photography capabilities as well as an AK4376a HiFi chip for the best audio performance. Read on to find out what do we think of this RM 1,999 mid-ranger.
