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 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone, it's like a mini version of the Mate Got this phone at a really good price (£200) back in October 2017 for my daughter's birthday in 2018. Easy to set up and because I use the amazing mate 9, I know this phone will be loved by my daughter. So far there isn't any complaints regarding its use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone at the price Quality construction, feels like a much more expensive phone. Got as a replacement for my broken Xperia Z1 Compact. Great screen, fast, long battery life. EMUI not as intuitive as the Sony as others have mentioned. Very happy, grab one while you can!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding phone, great features Now had this phone about a month and really pleased. Very well made and has the feel of a phone far better than the amazing price I paid for it. I like the Huawei set up as it is simple to navigate. Amazing camera both with its features and the quality of results. I am not a big user of any mobile and some days I may not make or receive a call or text. Nevertheless It is switched on all the time and I use either WiFi or data roaming once or twice a day. The processor is very quick when opening web pages. As a result of my usage I can get around a week between battery charges. I would thoroughly recommend this phoneand friends who have seen my phone are amazed with its quality and design.
