Comparing the features and specs of different phones will help you in your purchase decision, and most importantly, you get to see why the new HUAWEI nova Y70 stands out from the crowd with its solid features!

HUAWEI nova Y70

The best thing about the HUAWEI nova Y70 is the huge battery size. The 6000mAh battery it packs can power the phone for 3 days after one full charge. For you, this makes life a lot easier. Whether travelling, gaming, or watching shows on the phone, the long-lasting battery lets you do it without worry. But not only is the battery big, but it also charges up quickly with the 22.5W HUAWEI SuperCharge. Plug it in for 10 minutes while you are at work, and you will have enough power to enjoy 3 hours of video playback to kill time when commuting.

It also gives you an immersive visual experience with the expansive 6.75-inch HUAWEI FullView Display. Images, videos, and games will look vivid and mesmerizing on this screen. The narrow bezels and small notch in the middle are stylish and give the phone a high screen-to-body ratio of 90.26%. Thanks to smart dimming technology, the display can automatically adjust the screen brightness according to the ambient light, providing a comfortable viewing experience.


If you are looking for a smartphone with great cameras to push 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 optimized Huawei algorithms, HUAWEI nova Y70 greatly enhances the quality of the images. The Ultra-Wide Angle Camera helps you easily fit lots of people, magnificent landscapes, and architecture 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 improves issues like image sharpness and digital noise to preserve details in your selfies.

On top of that, the vast 128GB of storage is sufficient to store all your favourite TV shows, songs, and movies. But just in case you want more, you can always expand the storage up to 512GB using a MicroSD card. The trusted, innovative, user-friendly, and secure AppGallery is available on the HUAWEI nova Y70, where users can easily navigate, explore, find and easily download a wide range of high-quality apps.

Samsung Galaxy A13

The 5000mAh battery of the Samsung A13 is good enough, although much smaller than that of the HUAWEI nova Y70, capacity-wise. However, it only supports 15W charging speed which means the battery will take more time to fill up. The display size is 6.6 inches, with considerably thick bezels around it. As a result, the screen-to-body ratio is only 83.2%. The selfie camera here uses an 8MP sensor. The phone comes with up to 128GB of storage and supports MicroSD cards.

Samsung Galaxy A22

The battery capacity and the charging speed of the Samsung Galaxy A22 are the same as the A13. Samsung seems to follow a simple design for this phone. The display of the A22 is 6.4 inches. The screen-to-body ratio is 84.3%. In this case, also, you get a quad-camera system consisting of a 48MP main shooter, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor. Finally, the phone comes with 64GB and 128GB storage options with a dedicated MicroSD slot.


The huge 6000mAh battery with 22.5W HUAWEI SuperCharge, the immersive 6.75 inches HUAWEI FullView Display, and a great set of cameras makes the HUAWEI nova Y70 the best phone at this price point. So, if you are looking for a smartphone that meets all your expectations under GHS1,400, definitely go for the HUAWEI nova Y70.
