HUAWEI nova 10 Pro is Now Available in the UAE

Published

on

The HUAWEI nova 10 Pro is undoubtedly going for the city chic aesthetic. This is evident from the colours, textures, and stylistic elements on the phone. Nonetheless, even with so much emphasis on the design, it still balances style with substance, armed with a 60MP Dual Autofocus Front Camera, 100W HUAWEI SuperCharge Turbo, and more.

The nova moniker is derived from the Latin word “novas”, signifying that every rising star is born to shine, akin to the passion of youth when chasing their dreams of a better future. Created on the foundation of innovative technology, every generation of the HUAWEI nova series strives to represent the ideology of an innovative piece of technology that has an on-trend design, powerful cameras, excellent performance and offers smart interaction experiences. With that ideology in mind comes the launch of the new HUAWEI nova 10 Series, taking the series into its 10th generation. As of July 2022, the nova Series has accumulated a total of more than 200 million users worldwide.

To appreciate how lightweight and slim the HUAWEI nova 10 Pro is, you really have to hold it in your hands. But the phone is not all about its sleek build. Besides, the new Starry Black and Colour No. 10 colourways make this phone instantly recognisable. And Colour No. 10 deserves special mention. This new colourway depicts exquisite and elegant aesthetics with the chic metallic silver colour with the golden Star Orbit Ring and Icon, sparkling with layer upon layer to showcase fascinating colour changes under different light and shadow. The 3D curved display adds to all these. HUAWEI nova 10 Pro innovatively adapts a double colour coating process to enhance the design language of the Star Orbit Ring, creating a sense of harmony and symmetry. The end result is a flawless fusion of technology and fashion.

There are not one, but two front cameras on this phone. That itself is enough of a sign that it takes selfies quite seriously. HUAWEI nova 10 Pro comes with a 60MP Dual Autofocus Front Camera that consists of the industry’s first front-facing 60MP Ultra-Wide Autofocus Camera, supporting 100-degree wide angle and 4K video quality and an 8MP Portrait Close-up Camera that supports a 2X optical zoom and up to 5X digital zoom. This makes it possible to adjust freely between 0.7X~5X zoom range, giving you a world of new possibilities while shooting vlogs. It can even detect finer edges of the subject’s hair while taking pictures and create natural-looking SLR-level bokeh effects in your photos.

It also boasts Instant AF with Quad Phased Detection (QPD) and gives you faster-focusing speeds and improved focusing in dimly lit conditions. The Dual-View video function can also come in handy if you are trying to make your videos more engaging. It lets you utilise multiple cameras to shoot simultaneously, with the combination of dual front cameras, front and rear cameras, and picture-in-picture shooting. Then there is the AI texture portrait feature that makes it possible to capture clear and high-quality portraits with delicate, lustrous skin even under challenging lighting. The Flagship-level Colour Engine is also there for your aid to let you capture what you see accurately.

HUAWEI nova 10 Pro will make charging less of a concern for you with its 100W HUAWEI SuperCharge Turbo. It only takes 10 minutes to charge the phone from 20% to 80%, and will fully charge the phone in just 20 minutes. And despite the thin body of the phone, it packs in a large 4500mAh battery that gives you long battery life. In short, it’s time to say goodbye to low-battery anxiety and enjoy your games and shows without the fear of your phone unexpectedly dying on you.

If you have tried taking pictures at night, you know how difficult it is to get a good shot. But the 50MP RYYB Ultra Vision Camera on the HUAWEI nova 10 Pro will give you photographic superpowers. It uses Huawei’s flagship-grade RYYB colour filter array that increases light intake by 40 percent. This completely changes the low-light photography game and enables you to take night shots with bright details. Besides the 50MP RYYB Ultra Vision Camera, you also get an 8MP Ultra-Wide Macro Camera and a Portrait Depth Camera on the HUAWEI nova 10 Pro.

There is also a whole bunch of other cool features, including the Instant AF with QPD, the Follow Focus feature that allows you to lock the focus on a subject, and the Portrait Video function with natural-looking background bokeh. The smartphone also comes with an AI Snapshot feature that enhances the overall look and feel of photos. The Super Night Shot feature also helps bring out details beyond the perception of human eyes in dark scenes by increasing the brightness of dark areas in the shot.

Moreover, the trusted, innovative, user-friendly, and secure AppGallery is available on the HUAWEI nova 10, where users can easily navigate, explore, find and download a wide range of high-quality apps. The new HUAWEI nova 10 Pro in Starry Silver and Starry Black colours are available now at a price of AED 2399 and HUAWEI nova 10 at a price of AED 1899 .

CMF by Nothing Phone 1 Review: A Budget-Friendly Contender with a Twist

Published

on

In a market saturated with high-priced flagships, the CMF Phone 1 by Nothing is a breath of fresh air. Priced at a staggeringly affordable AED 749 onwards, it aims to deliver a compelling user experience without breaking the bank.

Design
One of the CMF Phone 1’s most striking features is its design. Unlike its flashier sibling, the Nothing Phone (2a), it ditches the transparent back with LED strips for a more conventional approach.

However, “conventional” doesn’t equate to boring here. The phone comes in various vibrant, almost playful colours, reminiscent of the early days of mobile phones. This playful aesthetic extends to the unique selling point of the CMF Phone 1: swappable back covers.

The CMF Phone 1 allows users to easily unscrew the stock black back and replace it with other colours such as orange, blue, and light green. This injects a degree of personalisation often missing in today’s homogenised phone market. Build quality feels solid despite the plastic construction, and the phone boasts an IP52 rating for basic dust and water resistance. CMF by Nothing also offers a bunch of other accessories that sweeten the deal. There’s a card case that can take in three credit cards, a kickstand, and a lanyard.

Display and Performance
The CMF Phone 1 sports a large, 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate. This translates to a vibrant viewing experience, with excellent contrast levels and sharp visuals for everyday use. Watching videos and scrolling through social media feels fluid and enjoyable.

Under the hood, the phone is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7300 chipset. While it won’t win any performance benchmarks, it offers sufficient processing power for most daily tasks such as browsing, social media, and light gaming. Multitasking feels smooth, and the phone rarely stumbles during regular use.

Software
The CMF Phone 1 runs Nothing OS 2.6, a near-stock Android experience with a minimalist aesthetic. This translates to a bloatware-free interface that prioritises user experience. The software feels clean and responsive, with subtle animations and a focus on functionality.

Notably, the playful design elements found in the Nothing Phone (2a)’s software, such as the Glyph interface, are absent here. This might disappoint some users who enjoyed the unique character of the Nothing brand. However, the focus on a clean and efficient experience remains a positive aspect.

Camera
The camera system of the CMF Phone 1 is a bit of a mixed bag. The main attraction is a 50MP Sony sensor backed by a depth sensor for portrait shots. In well-lit conditions, the camera captures decent photos with good detail and colour reproduction. Even in low light, the performance is pretty good with the night mode turned on.

The 16MP front-facing camera is adequate for video calls and casual selfies but won’t impress photography enthusiasts. Overall, the camera system is functional but falls short of what some users might expect, even at this price point.

Battery Life and Connectivity
The CMF Phone 1 packs a sizeable 5000mAh battery, which translates to excellent battery life. You can easily get through a full day of moderate use on a single charge and we were able to stretch it to two days on some occasions. The phone supports 33W wired charging, which helps top the battery up quickly when needed.

However, wireless charging is noticeably absent. In terms of connectivity, the phone offers standard options such as dual SIM support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. Notably, it also boasts 5G capabilities, making it future-proof for next-generation networks.

The Verdict
The CMF Phone 1 by Nothing is a compelling option for budget-conscious users who prioritise a clean software experience, vibrant display, and long battery life. The swappable back covers and the accessories add a unique touch of personalisation, while the overall design is refreshingly colourful and playful.

Ultimately, the CMF Phone 1 succeeds in its core mission: delivering a good user experience at an unbeatable price point. If you’re looking for a powerful flagship killer, look elsewhere. But if you prioritise everyday usability, clean software, and a touch of design flair without breaking the bank, the CMF Phone 1 is a strong contender.

Price: AED 749 onwards
