I'd rather purchase the original Nexus 6P after the price-cuts following the Pixel XL release
funny GSMA forgot to even mention Mi5 / Mi5s gang. They are cheaper, similarly sized & plenty powerful too. Waiting for a full review of Mi5s :D
« Xiaomi's Redmi 3 Pro is as beautiful and powerful as the Huawei nova. It even offers the same blazing-fast fingerprint scanner experience sans the cool gestures. And while the GPU is slight inferior, the superior battery would be a better choice for many. And it's at least Â€150 cheaper, so there is that. »
150 EUR ? It's bigger than that, count 250 EUR of difference ... The Redmi 3 Pro is retailling at 150-160 EUR when this Nova is 400 EUR, that's ain't cheap !
So now even the Chinese companies are using those wretched on-screen keys? Looks like it'll be Apple or Samsung for me.
This could have been easily been the contender for smartphone of the year only if Huawei priced it 320$(maximum), but at this price, considering the already easy availability of P-9 and Honor 8 and other competition, buying this phone just doesn't make any sense.
