Is the display good for gaming and watching movies?

The high screen to body ratio of 90.26% also helps you focus on the content leaving little around the screen to distract you. The phone also adopts a classic flat screen with a single punch hole in the middle to present a simple yet stylish design.

For gamers, the smartphone’s screen also supports an industry-leading 10-point Multi-touch technology to provide a fast response time even when using multi-finger gestures.

How good are the cameras on the HUAWEI nova Y70?

If you are looking for a smartphone with great cameras to explore your creativity, then the HUAWEI nova Y70’s AI Triple Camera is all you need. It features a 48MP High-res Main Camera, a 120° 5MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera and a 2MP Depth Camera. Thanks to the f/1.8 aperture of the 48MP High-res Main Camera, it allows for more light when shooting resulting in clean-looking photos. Coupled with the optimised Huawei algorithms, HUAWEI nova Y70 greatly enhances the quality of captured images, ensuring every shot is of optimal quality, even when taking pictures against the light.

The 5MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera helps you easily fit more content in one frame. The 2MP Depth Camera works with the innovative bokeh algorithm to blur the background, allowing your subject to stand out. The 8MP front camera also supports the bokeh effect to blur the background when taking selfies. Huawei’s AI Beauty algorithm can capture selfies in crisp detail with a natural beautifying effect and intelligently improve issues like image sharpness and digital noise to preserve details in your selfies.

What does the 128GB of storage space mean in real-life usage?

The 128GB storage capacity on the HUAWEI nova Y70 is going to be sufficient for the vast majority of people out there. To put it into perspective, you will easily be able to store up to 170 episodes of a drama series, 20,000 high-quality songs and over 60 HD movies on the phone.
