Huawei Nova Plus review


A quality handset, but not quite a super Nova

Reliable fingerprint sensor ; Strong battery life ; Classy design

Ugly interface ; Camera underwhelming ; Mediocre power for the money

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.

Huawei Nova Plus review: The middling mid-ranger - Pocket-lint


Using Huawei phones, and reviewing them seems to bring up the same old story: Great hardware, poor software. It's no different than with the Nova Plus

Build quality and design are well considered, battery life is great

EMUI software can hamper the experience, lacks competitive price for mid-range

Huawei phones tend to deliver the same old story: great hardware, poor software. It's no different than with the Nova Plus which, at its €429 price point, makes it hard to recommend over a faster,

Huawei Nova Plus


Not content with launching one handset at IFA 2016 in Berlin, Huawei has gone ahead and unveiled two mid-range options that will go head-to-head with the likes of the OnePlus 3, Moto G4 Plus and Vodafone Smart Platinum 7.

Huawei Nova Plus Review: In Depth


We review the mighty Huawei Nova Plus, a super-sized 5.5-inch version of the Huawei Nova boasting a 16-megapixel camera and an even bigger Full HD display

Strong media creds ; Excellent battery life ; Rugged design

Patchy performance ; Bettered by rivals

The Nova Plus is yet another 5.5-inch mighty mobile, which is elevated by some seriously impressive battery life. Media fans will love the spacious Full HD screen, but the likes of the OnePlus 3 and Samsung’s Galaxy A7 2016 boast the same strengths as...

Huawei Nova Plus review: Bigger, better, but a touch too much


Huawei's handset for the big-handed gets most things right, apart from the price

The Huawei Nova Plus is a very nice handset. It looks stylish, feels pleasingly weighty in the hand, has a super camera and the kind of screen that will make the most out of the photos you take with it. In any other year, this would get a solid...

Обзор смартфона Huawei Nova Plus


Сбалансированный фаблет среднего сегмента с 5.5-дюймовым дисплеем, FHD-разрешением, IPS-матрицей, чипсетом Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, 3 ГБ оперативной, 32 ГБ внутренней памяти и сканером отпечатков пальцев

К качеству передачи речи нет никаких претензий, вы и ваш собеседник отлично друг друга слышите.

Huawei Nova and Nova Plus Review


How many different ways are there to put together a smartphone? Manufacturers pick and choose components from myriad sources to bring us tricked-out flagships with bleeding-edge specs, ruggedized handsets able to withstand a little abuse, and even...

Fantastic battery life ; Feels quite well-made, maybe more than pricing would suggest

Expected more from the cameras, after all Huawei's hype ; Display not terribly bright nor accurate ; EMUI will take novice users some getting used to ; No unified “Nova” hardware design, some poor aesthetic decisions

Huawei put together two very solid phones with the Nova and Nova Plus. They don't do any one thing really well, but instead combine respectable performance (so long as you aren't too into gaming), alright camera quality, and decent design into two...

Huawei Nova Plus Review


At IFA in September, Huawei announced a pair of new mid-range smartphones, introducing their Nova line. But, the Nova Plus and the Nova only seem to share a name — Huawei used different designs for the two phones, on top of making one bigger than the...
