Blessed with a massive 5.9-inch Full HD IPS screen with Fullview Display, it makes for a great time whether you are on your favourite social media, watching videos, reading books, playing games and just browsing the web. It feels great to be bezel-less. You would have thought that an enormous size like this will feel uncomfortable, right? Apparently not so, as the phablet have soft lines, curved and rounded edges, and a sturdy metal unibody makes for a delightful look and feel.

Performance-wise, the Kirin 659 chipset, fast octa-core processor, great graphics and 4GB RAM ensures that it has enough firepower to run just about anything.  

Another stand-out for the Nova 2i is on its amazing four cameras. The 16MP+2MP primary camera makes for very impressive image rendering with extraordinary depth of field and professional bokeh effect. The 13MP+2MP selfie camera then allows for breathtaking bokeh, better lighting and radiant portraits. It makes for naturally beautiful, naturally you. Simply tap anywhere on the screen to assign focus and blur the background.

As for storage, the 64GB internal storage is highly capable to install all your favorite apps and games without any issues. Should you need more space, just pop in a microSD card and you can easily add up to 128GB of extra space.

Moving on to the battery, Huawei's Kirin chipset and EMUI OS delivers high performance with less battery. The 3340 mAh battery found on the Nova 2i can last up to 2 days with ordinary use.
