What do you expect your smartphone to do apart from the stuff every entry-level smartphone can do? Isn’t the gaming capability a factor that plays a vital role when it comes to proving the potential of a hardware? No matter how good a smartphone’s hardware might be, gaming is the area which makes a marginal difference. This used to be the case with earlier Huawei devices. To cut it short, Huawei and Gaming were poles apart.
Is the Nova 3i any good? So what’s Huawei’s take on gaming? The GPU Turbo technology is the answer to both of these questions. The GPU Turbo technology uses software algorithms to provide a smooth gameplay experience, reducing lags and stutters, which means the Nova 3i can now play your favorite games, no matter how intensive they are, without breaking a sweat.
The Huawei Nova 3i runs on Kirin 710 processor, which is a pretty capable chip and even manages to beat the Snapdragon 660 in some aspect. But when it comes to gaming, Mali GPUs with Kirin SoCs are always on the weaker side when compared to Adreno on the Snapdragon. This is what the GPU Turbo technology has changed. Starting on with PUBG; the game that has managed to hustle its way into our favorite games list. The GPU Turbo was introduced in collaboration with Tencent game developers which means your favorite game is optimized for Huawei, cheers to that. With that said, many graphics intensive games like Asphalt 9 and Shadow Fight play without an issue.
This is a step in the right direction and even if the technology is the first gen, it doesn’t feel like one and even when you run non GPU Turbo supported extensive titles, all you’ll notice is a little lag while loading the game but once you’re in the gameplay, the GPU Turbo kicks in and makes gaming on the Nova 3i a breeze. With powerful CPU and GPU Turbo technology, the Nova 3i might just be your ultimate go to when it comes to gaming on a budget.
Best Storage Capacity
What about the storage? No matter which smartphone you might have used in the past, all of us have been prompted with an annoying notification that our phone is running out of storage. Using a microSD card might seem a solution but we all have been there, losing your precious data due to corrupted microSD cards. How does the Huawei Nova 3i change that issue?
With 128GB of internal storage on the Huawei Nova 3i, you are never going to run out of storage. If you are someone who loves to carry an entire media library offline with them, or you’re a hardcore gamer, or you’re someone who never likes to delete any media from their smartphone, this one is definitely the one to eye on. Have you ever wondered, why do flagships charge extra for a larger storage? It’s because the onboard storage chip is a lot faster and much more reliable than any microSD card for that matter. Having a larger onboard storage also translates to better performance in general.
How does the Nova 3i’s storage help then? The Nova 3i is a versatile phone overall. It has got a great pair of cameras with the ability to capture RAW images, which is going to eat up a lot of space and when you have a storage this big, you don’t need to go through the hassle of deleting any photos. It has a great display for media consumption and with the big storage, you can easily carry around all your media library. Then, there are games like PUBG that eat up a lot of space. Plus the onboard storage is always faster than a microSD card, which means even faster read and write speeds.
All this advantage of having a big storage and a perfect gaming platform that too on a phone that is priced this aggressively at NRs. 38,900/- makes the Huawei Nova 3i a no-brainer. Get your hands on the phone if you are thinking to buy one this festive season. You’ll definitely like it.
