After a lot of extensive research, I purchased this phone second hand. I wanted to try something a little different (had a Moto G 2014 before) and was at first skeptical with Huawei. After a while, I took the plunge and got this, mainly because of the looks (premium and sleek design). The EMUI interface was something that I was put off with but it is very easy to install a launcher to get a different look. This phone is very fast and zippy. Everyday use is a breeze. Negative points are that it is very slippery (strange that most reviews dont mention this), camera struggles in low light and if you come from Android, you will need to get used to EMUI. My phone has Android 7.0 with EMUI 5.0. If you are willing to invest a little ingetting to know how Huawei's skin works, it will benefit you greatly and you will get much more from this phone.
This is indeed very expensive if you buy brand new. If you can find it second hand at a decent price, you are guaranteed a good deal. Granted, there are way better (and cheaper) options out there like the Moto series, but design is a big factor for my decision in purchasing a phone. The Huawei Nova just stands out from the crowd with its Robocop like visor strip at the back, slightly curved sides and a super cool red accent on the power button (ive got the titanium grey). For my first experiences with Huawei, i'm actually liking it so far. Completely understands peoples apprehension with trying a phone from this company though....

My phone is only 2 months old and my screen is broken. It even had a glad protector but that didn't even prevent it from cracking. This is by far the worst cellphone experience I've had.
I got can L01 on UK and still running on old 4.1 emui
Still not update available ....
Never buy again Huawei pay £400 on Christmas for ...is worth £1..
I have had the phone for a week now and I love it. It charges very fast, it retains charge compared to other phones I have used in the past even if I am online all day, the camera is also very clear. The phone is very fast as well.

Melted 2 charger cables and then didn't charge anymore. Got a replacement phone and it still gets hot if a few apps are running. Have to close all and let it cool down.
Good phone! Really big battery, full HD, light, that makes a really good one!
good phone, on every aspects excepts two:
- audio volume using external headset (through the 3.5 jack) is very low even if set to max
- the screen has no protection system (no gorilla glass or similar) so it scrates very VERY fast
Great phone, good specs for a mid-range phone, feels like a premium device, love the design + got the Color 1 band and 5000mah Hauwei power bank from Network Carrier (Telkom), received mine a day ago updated immediately to Android 7 Emui 5.0 (CAN-L12C409B330) without any errors.

Hi There, I just bought my Huawei Nova WAS-AL00C00B200 EMU5.1 Android7.0 on my last trip to China in July17. Well I knew it Google Service should not work in China, but even my in Brazil Google Services still not working on that model. I already tried a lot of web recommendations about how make GS works on Chinese phones...but any works for me. Can someone help me with that? or i should accept to have a useless phone, because a lot of apps request google service to work.
