Huawei Nova review

 

Huawei's perfectly pocketable Nova is a gorgeous phone, but it's too expensive.

Huawei hopes Nova and Nova Plus will be shining stars of the midrange phone market

 

Beyond their glossy and relatively small exteriors, the Nova and Nova Plus deliver popular, but not quite remarkable features.

Huawei Nova Smartphone Review

 

Handy alternative. Like its 5.5-inch sibling Nova Plus, Huawei's Nova is almost premium-range in terms of build. However, the 5-inch handset had even more to offer in the test and gives its mid-range opponents a hard time.

bright Full HD screen ; high-quality build ; USB Type-C port ; fingerprint sensor ; decent camera ; long battery life

no optical image stabilizer ; 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi only ; hybrid dual-SIM only ; no App2SD

Like Huawei's Nova Plus, Huawei's Nova is a really good smartphone with hardly any shortcomings. A very bright Full HD panel, high-quality and rigid casing, USB Type-C port, support for two SIM cards, and a reliable fingerprint scanner belong to its...

Huawei Nova review

 

The Huawei Nova is a top-rated mid-range phone. With a premium-design metal body, it has the look of a high-end handset but for half the price. Its top features are its 5-inch high resolution screen, fingerprint scanner, fast 8-core processor, and very...

The Nova impresses. Available for around £300 sim free, or on a mid-priced contract, it gives you the feel of a high-end phone for a lot less money than you'd expect. With high-end looks, fast performance, a good camera and premium features like a...

Huawei Nova Review – It’s the Mini Nexus 6P

 

Announced alongside the larger Nova Plus at IFA 2016, the Huawei Nova bears an uncanny resemblance to the Nexus 6P. That shouldn't come a much of a surprise considering Huawei actually manufactures the 6P for Google. With its similar diamond cut edges...

Huawei nova and nova plus review

 

With 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 4K video recording and Full HD displays then the nova and nova plus certainly have the hallmarks of couple of upper mid-range devices. That is even more so for the nova plus with its built-in OIS and larger...

32GB of internal storage ; 4K video recording ; Fast fingerprint reader ; Build quality ; Good battery life

EMUI isn't for everyone ; A better processor might have been apt for this package ; Camera could be better

Huawei Nova

 

Huawei has had a good year with its high-end phones, with both the Leica-engineered P9 and P9 Plus impressing both the press and the public. And now it's using IFA in Berlin to unveil a couple more affordable options.

Huawei Nova review: The mid-range muddler

 

Huawei has no shortage of phones on the market, ranging from its super-affordable Honor brand devices that punch well above their weight, to the high-end premium flagships like the P9 and P9 Plus . The Huawei Nova is a decent small-scale Android phone....

Compact size, decent build quality, long-lasting battery life

EMUI continues to hamper Android, camera is lacklustre

The Huawei Nova is a decent small-scale Android phone. It sits in a place in the market where there's desperate need for quality without an overly hefty price tag.

Huawei Nova review

 

Huawei's minimal mid-ranger looks like a Nexus 6P that shrunk in the wash

Familiar design adds a touch of class ; Snappy performance and decent battery life

There’s no escaping EMUI ; Camera quality is only average for the money ; Can’t beat the OnePlus 3 for value

Another mid-range marvel from Huawei, but the Nova can’t quite dethrone the OnePlus 3
