HUAWEI nova 3i: Up Your Game with AI Power Management


Consumers are now getting more connected with seamless connectivity from 4G and higher internet speed packages. As multi-hyphenate individuals, smartphones have transformed the way we live our lives – from entertainment, to socialisation, to work. To be able to sustain the multi roles of our smartphone device, the lifespan and performance of the battery is crucial. How do consumers get through the day with their smartphone? Extra power bank to save the day?

The answer: Artificial Intelligence (AI) power management.

HUAWEI ushers in an age of AI power management with the launch of AI processor Kirin 710 in July 2018. Being the first ever device that adopts the Kirin 710, the HUAWEI nova 3i can learn of its user’s behaviors and adjust. For instance, it can recognise user’s display brightness preference and optimize the settings automatically; configure the ring volume so that it is at the optimal loudness; trade network speeds for efficiency for users that don’t mind going a little slower; slow down the performance of device in periods when users typically do not use the phone; and automatically enable aggressive power saving measures well ahead of battery depletion for users who are usually paranoid about their devices’ battery status.

AI enables devices to manage power in a more granular scale, capable of shifting resources to processes that users care about, and away from those that users don’t care for. Tailoring power management plans for each individual user according to their needs—that is the core of AI power management.

HUAWEI nova 3i features a 3,340 mAh battery, delivering extremely long battery life for even the most intensive users. Enhanced with the EMUI 8.2, it can delegate less intensive tasks to its smaller cores for the maximum efficiency. The resource management workflow works alongside HUAWEI’s communications technology to attain the best levels of efficiency. The Kirin 710 chip is also able to deliver an outstanding and balanced performance as it supports dual SIMs, both on 4G and VoLTE which provides seamless experience, even when experiencing network delays.

Retailing at only RM1,249 excluding prevailing taxes, HUAWEI nova 3i can be purchased at all HUAWEI Experience Stores, display zones, authorized dealers and major telco companies. Customers will also be rewarded with a nova Privilege Card worth up to RM1,000 for every purchase.

Pendedahan tabiat menjengkelkan semasa melancong

Mobile device addiction

Daripada kaji selidik globalnya yang dijalankan mendapati ‘Tabiat Pengembaraan yang Menjengkelkan’’ dan menggesa pelancong supaya tidak leka dengan telefon, sebaliknya bersikap lebih peka.

Dengan percutian musim panas yang sedang berlangsung sekarang, Agoda, salah satu platform tempahan penginapan dalam talian (OTA) paling pesat berkembang, telah menyoal pelancong mengenai tabiat yang paling menjengkelkan semasa mereka bercuti.

Menurut kaji selidik global tahunan Agoda ‘Tabiat Pengembaraan Yang Menjengkelkan’, pelancong yang bising (57%), pelancong yang terpaku kepada peranti mereka (47%) dan mereka yang tidak sensitif dengan budaya tempatan (46%) mendahului tabiat pelancong yang paling menjengkelkan. Kumpulan besar pelancong dan penggemar selfie, masing-masing 36% dan 21%, melengkapkan lima tabiat utama yang menjengkelkan.

Pelancong dari negara China kelihatan memiliki tolak ansur tertinggi terhadap penggemar selfie, dengan hanya 12% responden China yang dijengkelkan oleh penggemar selfie berbanding rakyat Australia yang bersikap sebaliknya dengan hampir sepertiga (31%) menyifatkan penggemar selfie sebagai menjengkelkan.

Ketidakpekaan terhadap budaya tempatan adalah lebih dua kali ganda menyinggung hati bagi pelancong Singapura (63%), Filipina (61%) dan Malaysia (60%) berbanding pelancong China (21%) dan Thailand (27%). Kira-kira separuh pelancong British (54%) dan dua perlima pelancong Amerika Syarikat (41%) tidak bertolak ansur terhadap tabiat ini.

Ketagihan terhadap alat peranti

Hampir separuh (47%) daripada responden global menyifatkan pengembara yang meluangkan terlalu banyak masa pada alat peranti mereka sebagai sesuatu yang merengsakan. Berbanding pelancong dari negara lain, pelancong Vietnam mendapati mereka yang terpaku pada alat peranti mereka adalah paling menjengkelkan (59%). Pelancong Thailand, sebaliknya, memiliki sikap paling tenang (31%) terhadap penggunaan berat alat peranti semasa percutian.

Mungkin paling tidak memeranjatkan, pengembara solo meluangkan masa hampir dua jam sehari dengan alat peranti mereka semasa bercuti (117 minit) – iaitu 15% lebih lama berbanding mereka yang mengembara bersama rakan-rakan (100 minit) dan 26% lebih singkat jika bersama keluarga (86 minit). Pelancong Amerika adalah satu-satunya pengecualian untuk trend ini dan secara purata meluangkan kurang masa pada peranti mereka semasa mengembara solo (62 minit) berbanding ketika bersama keluarga (66 minit) atau kawan-kawan (86 minit).

Pelancong British pula adalah pengembara yang paling terlibat semasa mengembara bersama, mengehadkan masa terhadap alat peranti kepada sejam sahaja (63 minit) sehari; berbanding pelancong Thailand yang meluangkan masa lebih daripada dua jam sehari (125 minit) pada telefon mereka apabila mengembara bersama kawan-kawan atau keluarga.

Bagi menggalakkan pengembara memberi perhatian dan benar-benar menikmati pengalaman destinasi baharu mereka tanpa menatap paparan telefon, Agoda telah melancarkan kempen ‘Selfie Gagal’ (Selfie Fail) yang merangkumi listicles dan montaj video yang menonjolkan keburukan terlalu bergayut kepada telefon pintar. Digayakan di dalam format video ‘kegagalan epik’, pelawak Australia Ozzyman menjadi suara latar kepada video pengembara sebenar yang terlibat dengan kemalangan dan situasi bodoh akibat terlalu bergantung kepada peranti mereka berbanding persekitaran.

Fakta-fakta ‘Tabiat Pengembaraan Menyakitkan Hati’ Malaysia:

  • Tidak sensitif kepada budaya tempatan (60%); pelancong bising (56%) dan melekat pada peranti (51%) adalah tabiat pelancong Malaysia yang paling menjengkelkan.
  • Pelancong Malaysia berusia 55 tahun ke atas adalah paling tidak menyukai pelancong bising – 74% berbanding purata kaji selidik 56%
  • Pelancong berusia 18 hingga 24 tahun menghabiskan masa terbanyak pada peranti mereka setiap hari (243 minit berbanding 218 kesemua responden)


Baca butiran penuh di sini:

Kaji selidik Agoda ‘Tabiat Pengembaraan Yang Menjengkelkan’ dilakukan oleh firma penyelidik pasaran bebas, YouGov antara 19 dan 25 Jun 2018. Seramai 10,384 responden disoal secara dalam talian dan mewakili mereka yang telah bercuti sekurang-kurangnya sekali pada tahun-tahun sebelumnya.
