Huawei Nova Plus


Not content with launching one handset at IFA 2016 in Berlin, Huawei has gone ahead and unveiled two mid-range options that will go head-to-head with the likes of the OnePlus 3, Moto G4 Plus and Vodafone Smart Platinum 7.

Huawei Nova Plus review: The middling mid-ranger


Huawei hasn't been shy about the fact it wants to dominate the European market. Unlike the likes of Apple, or HTC, its strategy isn't just to release one or two phones it thinks everyone will buy. Instead, the Chinese manufacturer releases dozens of...

Build quality and design are well considered, battery life is great

EMUI software can hamper the experience, lacks competitive price for mid-range

Huawei phones tend to deliver the same old story: great hardware, poor software. It's no different than with the Nova Plus which, at its €429 price point, makes it hard to recommend over a faster, more powerful OnePlus 3 or more exciting-looking Honor...

Huawei Nova Plus review


A quality handset, but not quite a super Nova

Reliable fingerprint sensor ; Strong battery life ; Classy design

Ugly interface ; Camera underwhelming ; Mediocre power for the money

The larger handset in Huawei's new Nova range, the Nova+ offers a sharp camera and decent design – if it comes in at an accessible price it could be a winner.

Huawei Nova Plus review | Should I buy a Huawei Nova Plus?


Announced at IFA 2016 in Berlin, Huawei is launching a new range of smartphones to take on the mid-range market, the Huawei Nova and Huawei Nova Plus. We've spent some time with the Huawei Nova Plus and here we discuss pricing and availability, design,...

While the Huawei Nova Plus certainly looks the part with a premium design and a bright, crisp display, the internals let it down. Despite featuring an improved camera with OIS, the photos produced by the smartphone are barely improved when compared to...

Huawei Nova Plus review: Almost a OnePlus 3 killer


Huawei's Nova Plus is a mid-range tour de force, but it isn't quite the OnePlus 3 killer

Excellent camera ; Speedy performance ; Impressive display

Disappointing battery life ; Too expensive

Even so, that puts the Nova Plus at a bit of a disadvantage, for while its screen, performance and camera are all fantastic, the OnePlus 3 does everything a lot better for less. I’d definitely recommend the Nova Plus over the regular Nova, but if...

Huawei Nova Plus Review: In Depth


We review the mighty Huawei Nova Plus, a super-sized 5.5-inch version of the Huawei Nova boasting a 16-megapixel camera and an even bigger Full HD display

Strong media creds ; Excellent battery life ; Rugged design

Patchy performance ; Bettered by rivals

The Nova Plus is yet another 5.5-inch mighty mobile, which is elevated by some seriously impressive battery life. Media fans will love the spacious Full HD screen, but the likes of the OnePlus 3 and Samsung’s Galaxy A7 2016 boast the same strengths as...

Huawei hopes Nova and Nova Plus will be shining stars of the midrange phone market


Beyond their glossy and relatively small exteriors, the Nova and Nova Plus deliver popular, but not quite remarkable features.

Huawei Nova Plus review: Bigger, better, but a touch too much


Huawei's handset for the big-handed gets most things right, apart from the price

The Huawei Nova Plus is a very nice handset. It looks stylish, feels pleasingly weighty in the hand, has a super camera and the kind of screen that will make the most out of the photos you take with it. In any other year, this would get a solid...

Huawei nova and nova plus: Mid-range phones that don't feel like a compromise


Flagship looks, decent price.

Beautiful design ; Solid performance ; Well built

Could be cheaper

Huawei's mid-rangers look like premium phones and, for the most part, perform like flagships.

Huawei Nova Plus Smartphone Review


Finally 4k recording! Huawei's Nova Plus leaves a premium impression in the mainstream segment and is the first smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer with Ultra-HD video recording. However, Huawei does not use its own Kirin SoC, but a chip from...

high build quality ; USB Type-C ; good display ; reliably fingerprint scanner ; good cameras ; long battery runtimes

high SAR values ; only 2.4 GHz WLAN ; no App2SD / microSD cannot be formatted as internal storage ; only hybrid dual-SIM

Huawei's Nova Plus is a really good smartphone and we can only find few real drawbacks. Besides the bright display you get two really good cameras. Selfie fans will enjoy the front camera in particular. You also get a powerful battery, which actually...
