Should You Buy?

Overall, the Huawei Nova 3i is a very beautiful & premium smartphone, which has probably got the most premium design at this price. It has also got a good big display, very good performance with Huawei’s new processor & a very good battery life. The Nova 3i also does pretty well in the camera department & comes with lots of modes & stickers for camera lovers. However, for its price point, the Nova 3i lacks fast charging & USB Type-C which is sad. It’s still a good competitive package but the biggest roadblock in buying the Nova 3i is Huawei’s own more powerful & aggressively priced Honor Play. So, buy the Nova 3i only for its design otherwise, there are much better options.
