We Took the Huawei nova2Plus for a Test Drive and This is Our Final Verdict




It doesn’t matter how much you read about a phone and its features, trying it out is a completely different ball game.So that’s just want we did on the set of our Huawei photoshoot for the nova2Plus.As our celebrity photographer clicked away, we were doing our own clicking and testing out some of the features of this phone.

Don't get us wrong we are not tech geeks with a sophisticated opinion, but we are modern women that have certain needs of our smart devices.

Before we start, special credit is due to our awesome team : Hiba Asaad Art Direction and Management, Ocho Photography, Model Mona Udwan, Makeup Artist Yasmine Abu Hassan and Hair Stylist Mike.

We gave the nova2Plus a run for its money and it did not disappoint.Firstly the facial recognition feature defined Mona’s features just like a contouring concealer stick.Another challenge for the phone was the lighting, working in a storage facility doesn’t exactly make for great lighting.The F2.0 low-light engine gave us 3 times more brightness without the noise we sometimes get in the dark.Final verdict, awesome selfies or should we say, ‘superstar’…



The Bokeh Effect

We were curious to know which was going to get the most attention, the beautiful model or the equally beautiful vintage cars.Well Huawei nova2Plus’ Bokeh effect allowed us to decide where we wanted the focus to land.As Mona and the cars were vying for our attention we were having a field day with this awesome feature, blurring out the cars at times to focus on Mona and vice versa.

Anyone that has ever had a child or a pet know how frustrating it can be to capture the perfect moment on camera.Well these dogs were just as fidgety as a hunger baby and it was quite a challenge keeping them still for the photo.Thanks to the motion photos feature on the Huawei nova2Plus, we were able to capture some great photos for 0.2 seconds which is actually a long time when it comes to babies and pets !

Any workout fan will tell you that the outdoors and gyms can be noisy places which compromises the quality of the sound on their device.Well there was no need to fret with the Huawei nova2Plus Histen system which provides 3D sound quality and effect that will transport you to another world.




Hi-Fi Sound Effect


Last but not least, the sound system.What is a photoshoot without a great sound system to energize and get us in the mood?Believe it or not, we turned off the professional sound system and tried out the Hi-Fi sound effect on the nova2Plus.‘Listening’ is believing in this case, what an impressive sound from such a small device.Final verdict, awesome !
