Huawei Nova 4e

Next up, we have the solid, if slightly unspectacular, Huawei Nova 4e. Huawei has gone with the tried and tested here, with a well-rounded set of features. On the camera side; a 24MP f/1.8 main shooter, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra wide-angle camera, and a 2MP f/2.4 shooter for depth of field make for a versatile setup.

It’s 6.15″ Full HD+ display has a teardrop notch, although it’s somewhat limited by a small-ish battery—3,340mAh—by today’s standards. You can charge the phone via USB-C, while it supports 18W fast-charging. It’s powered by the decent midrange Kirin 710, along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

But something that stands out for the Nova 4e, is of course, its selfie camera. It has a 32MP selfie shooter up front, which is a higher megapixel-count than the one on its more expensive cousin, the Nova 4. Overall, a decent enough camera-centric smartphone, although it doesn’t particularly stand out in any obvious way. It’s also great to see yet another headphone jack in this category.
