The Huawei Nova 9 8GB/128GB has a premium feel and unique looks. At least as far as the back is concerned. But its glossy plastic frame is a bit of a fingerprint magnet. Other than that, the back is made of glass and in Kenya, you can get it in Starry Blue, Black, Green, or Violet. This phone feels great in the hand especially since it weighs just 175 grams. It’s one of the lightest phones of this size. Both its front and back have an aggressive curve. Generally, this design is great, striking, and head-turning. Adding Gorilla Glass protection for more durability would have carried the day away. The nova 9 has a single downward-facing speaker. It’s decently loud, and it sounds clean as long as you don’t turn up the volume too much.


There are four cameras on the back of the Huawei nova 9 with a 50 MP, f/1.9, 23mm (wide), PDAF main sensor. Present here also is an 8 MP, f/2.2, (ultrawide), 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth) and 2 MP, f/2.4, (macro) . When it came to daylight photos, you will get okay results. Except for a few outliers, the photos are all sharp with good dynamic range. Generally, these photos are not very competitive for the price point. Unless you are buying this one for its 32-megapixel selfie camera that snaps some pretty good selfies.
