Design and display

Beautiful design

Design-wise, the Huawei nova boasts a strong metal frame with smooth edges and softs curves. Every inch of the smartphone has been carefully considered, right down to the power button on the side, with a subtle red border. 

Impressive screen

The 5-inch LCD display has a dense pixel per inch count, meaning all your images will look pin sharp. And the Full HD resolution guarantees you’ll be able to show off your videos with pride in the quality. 


4K-ready camera

Nova’s powerful 12MP camera is for both high quality stills and 4K-res video. And the large 1.25um pixels will let in loads of light, for bright accurate photos, especially in low light. 

Express your selfie

On the front of the smartphone is an 8MP camera, just above the display. Not only will you be able to capture the perfect selfie, but with real time make-up apps like Beauty Skin, you can have a bit of fun, too. 

Under the hood

Powerful performance

Under the hood there’s a whopping 2.0GHz octa-core processor alongside 3GB RAM. So you can be sure that there’s no shortage of power, even if you’re combining gameplay with other powerful apps. 

Long-lasting battery

With a large battery capacity of 3,020mAh, the Huawei nova can hold enough charge to keep you going all day long. And if you’re looking for a swift injection of power, the latest USB technology, Type-C, is on board to make sure you’re not left waiting around.

Huawei nova is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great phone. The phone is way too underrated by reviewers. Huawei have been manufacturing amazing phones lately with a low price and this is one of them. The photos this phone is capable of capturing is amazing for the price. It's handy for social media and for those just starting in photography. The screen quality is great; 5 inches should be enough for just about anyone. Battery life is good too. Lasts for about a day's use (depending on the activities). Gaming is decent as well. With 32gb you can get a few large games. Overall, this phone is great for the average user.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone. I have had this phone only a couple of weeks and I am really impressed with the performance of it. The camera is excellent so if you like taking pictures with it you will not be disappointed.There are some great features such as the phone manager where you can optimise the phones performance and like the other reviews it has a great battery life unlike my previous phone the Sony XA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone This phone is a very under rated device by reviewers. Firstly it's extremely well made,solidly built handset. The metal finish feels so premium,cold to the touch,sleek and slim which looks gorgeous!! I love the little attention to detail like the red power key. The screen is bright and colourful with great contrast,performance is where it is under rated with a Snapdragon 625 CPU under the bonnet it ticks along smoothly with no lag at all. This processor is very power efficient coupled with 3 gig ram it works great. Fingerprint scanner is fast and accurate too. The 12mp main camera takes tack sharp photos in daylight & using full manual controls taking lowlight images on a tripod they come out fantastic for a phone. You can capture light trails and night scapes with little noise. But you will need a tripod and know how to take long exposures to get the best from it. Lastly battery life is superb!! Fully charged on standby for 6 hours it never drained at all,with only a little usage on 4G it dropped on 2% with 40 minutes of social media. Overall this handset is superb and will be even better once Android 7 Nougat arrives!!
