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

 

A mid-range phone that flirts with the high-end

High-quality aluminium build ; Decent battery life

Quite expensive ; Poor low-light camera performance ; Emotion UI needs manual tweaks

A well-made mid-range phone, but one a little too expensive given the competition at the price. You can get a similarly impressive phone with a better camera and CPU for the same cash.

Huawei Nova+ review

 

Nova gonna give you up

Large display ; Cool design

Slower loading times ; Price unknown

The larger handset in Huawei's new Nova range, the Nova+ offers a sharp camera and decent design – if it comes in at an accessible price it could be a winner.
