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.
Anon, 04 Mar 2017Can anyone tell me how good are the cameras for the nova and is it a good mobile to purchase?Cameras are perfect
Huawei is my fav OEM, too bad the nova isnt available, only the nova plus one is available and the p9 is too expensive, i think i shouod have waited so the p9 will be cheaper when the p10 announced at MWC, i got the a3 2017, good phone but i got it before mwc started, ugh, but my next phone will be huawei but i will wait in 2 years then. Still the a3 is good but not as good as the p9 or on par with the nova
I'm digging this phone except for one glaring omission, dual band Wi-Fi So sad no 5Ghz Anyone else find that odd in a "new" phone? Please share your thoughts

Anonymous 2016, 03 Sep 2016Whatever smartphones are coming these days all of them will fade away gradually.... Take eithe... moreYou have been misinformed about Chinese brands. I know people who have had bad experiences with iPhones. Don't be brainwashed into thinking everything Chinese is bad. Also phone that exploded wasn't Chinese. There are also cases of iPhones exploding. Compare phones before you buy or you will find yourself misled by good marketing and getting ripped off.
Sean, 22 Feb 2017Nope,camera on Nova is nice and sharp compared to P9 Lite. I have had bothyes it is because i tested both out but bought the nova in the end its so much more premium
