The Design

Created on the foundation of innovative technology, every generation of the HUAWEI nova series strives to represents 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. The HUAWEI nova 10 Pro is available in an exhilarating Starry Silver and Starry Black colourways. Both of these colours represents a distinct aesthetic style and they both adhere to a trendy, youthful design philosophy.

Starry Silver depicts exquisite and elegant aesthetics. Combining the chic metallic silver colour with the golden Star Orbit Ring and Icon, the 3D curved display of the phone sparkles with layer upon layer to showcase fascinating colour changes under different light and shadow. The 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. It also features a brand-new COP encapsulation technology, allowing the display’s bottom bezel to measure just 2.56mm each for a more immersive visual experience

The design of the Samsung Galaxy S22 looks quite similar to that of the previous model, Samsung Galaxy S21. The phone comes with an aluminium band around the middle and a glass back, the materials may have been altered but the signature camera housing on the back, the flat screen, and the punch hole camera are all the same without any significant changes. 

Selfie Camera

If you are looking to capture outstanding selfie portraits or record memorable vlogs that are going to be talk of the town then the HUAWEI nova 10 Pro is your phone. This phone continues to lead in the innovation of mobile front camera technology. With HUAWEI Multi-Vision Photography, the HUAWEI nova 10 Pro sports high-quality dual front camera lenses. One lens features the industry’s first front-facing 60MP Ultra-Wide Autofocus Camera, supporting 100-degree wide angle and 4K video quality, which offers excellent resolution and light sensitivity. Additionally, the front-facing 8MP Portrait Close-up Camera, another industry’s first, supports 2X optical zoom and up to 5X digital zoom, it allows users to shoot 0.7X~5X zoom videos. Users can freely adjust the zoom range with the nearest effective focal length of 14cm to better present the scene and to improve the vlog-shooting experience.

It also sports the industry’s first front camera with an Instant AF with Quad Phased Detection (QPD). With upgraded autofocus capabilities of the dual front cameras, the HUAWEI nova 10 Pro can intelligently switch the focus of different subjects within the camera, and through the Showcase Focus function, which allows the subjects to be clearly displayed even in vlogs filmed indoors. Additionally, HUAWEI nova 10 Pro also supports Dual-View video function, which utilises multiple cameras of the smartphone to shoot simultaneously, offering a multi-camera shooting experience with the combination of dual front cameras, front and rear camera, as well as picture in picture shooting.

The AI Texture Skin Algorithm together with XD Fusion Engine also improves mobile photography for every scenario: front-lighting, backlighting and multi-exposure high dynamic range (HDR) shots to achieve delicate Front SLR-Level Bokeh effects, helping users to capture clear and high-quality close-up portraits at a click of the shutter.

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S22 houses a 10MP selfie camera that can take colourful and crisp selfies but obviously, it doesn’t offer as much as what HAWEI nova 10 Pro does. The selfie camera comes with a few features such as Director’s View, which utilises the front and back cameras at once while recording, Portrait Video, Bixby Vision – which is a feature built into the S22 Camera app to enhance images and selfies with the use of artificial intelligence.

Battery Charging Speed

If you are someone who uses your phone a lot to the extent where battery drains out faster than usual and you need a handset with a battery, which can recharge swiftly anytime and anywhere, then you should go for the HUAWEI nova 10 Pro: it supports the new-generation 100W HUAWEI SuperCharge Turbo coupled with Huawei's unique intelligent temperature control technology, the phone brings users a better charging experience. It only takes 10 minutes to charge the phone up to 60 percent, while fully charging the phone in just 20 minutes – the same duration it takes to load up a new game.

Choosing the right smartphone is not an easy task. While the Samsung Galaxy S22 is a solid phone, HUAWEI nova 10 Pro features a sublime design, stellar front cameras, and an incredibly fast charging speed that make it a clear winner here.
