FYI - not sure about the version above here but any of the ones I've seen on Aliexpress (Chinese ones anyway) DO NOT have NFC!
I bought 2nd hand based on stats above and got caught out - maybe worth flagging in the stats.
In section 5 of your review you show a screen of 'toggle rearrangement'. I have this phone and see nowhere how to change icons/features in the Shortcuts.
Also, I find it annoying that the 'Notifications' shows up first instead of 'Shortcuts'. Can this be changed somehow?
All in all I like the hardware but the software/UI is not to my liking. There is much less customisation possible than on my Samsung Alpha with Kitkat 4.4.4.
I have tried working with the Nova Launcher but this doesnÂ’t really solve the above issues.
I also installed the Â‘Power TogglesÂ’ application but all this does is redirect me in the Huawei menu of a specific action. If I press the 3G/4G icon (on Power Toggles) to switch on/off data then I am being redirected to the mobile network setting of my phone and have to press a slide to enable/disable data. ThatÂ’s clicking twice for something that should require only 1 click.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Hahahaha overpriced. I won't buy it because of it quality. Seriously Huawei, don't get overconfident. Your level is not as high as Samsung, Apple or others.
- no front stereo speakers
- no OIS camera
useless phone, a great downgrade from Nexus 6P
What is the price on the nova? is it really $445? too much for this. $250 would be max.

GSMARENA, this Nova has NFC see manual still a pitty no Gorilla Glass and dual Wi-Fi

Thank you for your input. I will contact Huawei for an official quote on the subject and will update the reviews and specs if new information arrives.
P.S. Anonymous - Asus hasn't sent us Zenfone 3 yet, otherwise it would have been the first one in our review queue right now. And it isn't on sale in our region, so it's out of our hands for now. There is no conspiracy here.
When this review come out quicker than zenfone 3, you know something is fishy around here.
GSM Arena,Huawei rarely mentions what glass it uses like with the P9 Lite. But Huawei told me they use Aminosilicate glass on their models that don't mention the glass. I was told this by Huawei UK in an email
Momo Simon, 04 Oct 2016When you know that Nova can record 4K but P9 only 1080p....4k is not a big deal.it only overheats and drains battery.beside more than 80% users record at full hd so unless the overheating and battery drain issues are not fixed,its kind of useless
