Huawei Nova 3i: Better storage than the OPPO F9?


The Huawei Nova 3i and the OPPO F9 are part of the same category – midrange phones. The two devices were launched recently this year and are the latest midrange handsets of their respective companies. Both of them have areas where they exceed in as well.

These two have been compared with each other in various articles not only because they’re in the same category but their prices are also very close. Furthermore, there have been debates online on which smartphone is the better one. We already made an in-depth comparison review of the two devices. In this article, we’ll determine which of the two has the better storage.

In terms of specifications, the Huawei Nova 3i contains 4GB of RAM and an internal storage of 128GB. On the other hand, the OPPO F9 has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Both of their internal storage can be expanded via a microSD card. Looking at their specs, you’ll speculate that in terms of RAM, the OPPO F9 has the advantage whereas when you look at their internal storages, the Huawei Nova 3i clearly has the upper hand.

For some reference, RAM is storage used for a place to hold data. What this does is aid your phone in multi-tasking as well as speed up your device. This also prevents your phone from lagging when there are multiple applications that are open. The larger the RAM, the faster the performance. As for the internal storage, its name is explanatory.

Determining which smartphone has a better storage will depend on the user’s priority in a phone. If you are the type of person who stores a lot on their device like music, photos, videos, games, etc.; then the Huawei Nova 3i is a better choice since it sports a large 128GB internal memory.

Ultimately, smartphones are commonly used for daily activities such as listening to music, playing games, and taking pictures. More and more social media applications that are dependent on pictures and videos are appearing as well. This means that in the end, it would be more beneficial to have a larger storage rather than a larger RAM since the user will be able to store more applications on the device. On that note, in this case, the Huawei Nova 3i has the better storage.
