Ive had it for a month, i had the Huawei G7 before this. I am very pleased with this device. One of my colleagues has the P9, when we put the devices side by side, the nova takes a better picture with both cameras.
A truly amazing device

I have a nova (pink) when I pull down from top to display the shortcut/notifications menu, (e.g. quick airplane mode or silent,etc...) it comes pre selected, when I press edit to add other apps to my shortcuts for some reason it stays in "edit" mode, and can't save the changes.
Does anyone know how to save changes on the shortcut/notifications menu?
I just did an emui 5 upgrade yesterday, and since then I can't use my shortcuts menu.
I will appreciate your help
Byron, 16 Mar 2017How do you update the CAN-L01 to android 7? Is it available?Huawei nova has access for the moment only to a beta version of EMUI 5/Android Nougat. there are tutorials on the web onto how to upgrade it manually. But since it is a beta version and there might be features still locked, i would rather advise you to wait for a proper OTA update.
I have the phone for a month now and passing from a HTC one M8 to it, i don't regret anything. It is awesome.

Best ever looking phone I held in my hand so far. Dual-sim, Android, 5 inch, Iphone like.
I can only hope it will behave well, but the appearance is +10.

When I do that, the open window just bounces up and down, but does not close. This is weird, cause I opened the messaging app, and now it also has a lock on top of the icon, and now I have 2 apps that won't close, lol.

Press the square button that displays all of your open applications, scroll to where the application with the lock is and simply swipe down on the application.
I have a P9 lite. Very satisfied with everything on the phone. I just noticed that my message folder is locked, so I can't close the app. There is a little lock on top of the folder. Anybody can tell me how to unlock and close the app will be appreciated. Thankyou.
i've had the phone for about a month now and it works flawlessly without complaint. battery life is better than advertised,allmost 3 days with data and wifi allways on, and an average talk time of about 3h a day. sound quallity is poor, speaker and headphones. the stock headphones are a true joke, dreadfull sound,threw them away in a drawer after less than 10 seconds of music. the only downside of the phone is the screen,the fact that it lacks any kind of protection is a shame,even dough i have an original case from huawei,the active flip case, it has sarted to show wear and tear with fine scratches on the glass. apart from this the phone is a true jem. nice camera, great battery life and exceptional feel and design.i highly recomend it alldough a screen protector is a must.
Bought a P8 last year I had the most amazing experience sadly it fell into a bucket of water, then I had to settle for a mid range phone so I bought the nova and I just luv it thank Huawei. Huawei the best brand.
I am totally blown away with this phone...I've been using it for a week now and the styling is just super sexy, it's an aluminium body that feels really premium and it's just a delight to hold in your hand. It's really solidly built with no play in the buttons, volume and power buttons on the right with a illuminated power button...card drawer is on the left, with the speaker mounted under the phone. It's a phone that will definitely get you compliments.
The finger print scanner is very easy to setup and upon setting it up.I've never experienced any problems with it...it's truly super fast. Never had a glitch and doubt I'll ever have one.
Though the screen isn't an amoled it holds it's ground perfectly...colours are bold and bright...movies on it is amazing. There's an option in it to set the colour temperature so you can make it either really blue or really orange or whatever colour you desire. Also a setting for night time use that's really comfy on the eyes but gives it a rather orange look...that's normal by the way.
Camera's are amazing so don't always believe what people say...I've tested both front and back and even in low light it isn't that bad. They both shoot fast and accurate. It is however a mid range phone after all so don't expect a flagship camera but it really is above average. Camera's have awesome features as well, it has a 2.0 beauty mode and a make up mode for the ladies...
The performance is amazing for the chipset, it does the job perfectly and flies swiftly through any task you throw at it. Graphics is amazing as well, you can run almost any game without any lag and surprisingly the phone never heats up.
The battery is really on another level on it's own, along with it's chipset it gets me well over a day and I'm a moderate to heavy user. It supports quick charge and charges up really fast even though it comes with a standard charger. It has a very strict phone manager that's really efficient in handling battery usage...it's able to optimize battery usage really fast and has a power plan feature which allows you to switch between performance, smart or ultra power saving which gives you more battery life.
In conclusion it is an awesome phone to own and ticks all the right boxes...for a mid ranged phone it is above average and can stack up nicely against any phone in it's range. If I could change anything about this phone then it would be a dual SIM instead of a hybrid dual SIM.
If you're in the market for purchasing a solidly built mid ranger with a huge battery life then this is the phone for you. P.S I have it in titanium grey and it looks really premium.
