Huawei Nova Plus, analysis: The premium mid-range is a thing of Huawei

After showing you some first impressions from the IFA in Berlin , we have been able to spend a few days alone with the Huawei Nova Plus , the new Chinese giant in the mid-high range.

This new terminal is the older brother of the Huawei Nova next to the one that was presented, and that is that it goes up to 5.5 inches of screen . Next, we tell you everything you need to know about the Huawei Nova Plus, go ahead!

Huawei Nova Plus, features


Once again, and many are going, Huawei offers us a smartphone with a very careful design . Premium materials are the tonic throughout the body of the terminal, with corners and edges quite rounded. This, together with the golden color of the unit we have analyzed, give it a very elegant appearance, although it is also available in silver and gray.

Continuing with the rounded shapes, the back - where the 4-layer fingerprint reader is located for more security - shows a slight curvature that makes the terminal truly ergonomic .

Hardware and multimedia

As for the screen, its almost non-existent frames can deceive us with the naked eye, but once turned on, we realize that there is an important frame. Even so, the front-screen ratio is quite successful with almost a 73% ratio. This is a 5.5-inch IPS panel with Full HD resolution , which translates to about 400 pixels per inch.

If we talk about internal hardware , this Huawei Nova Plus does not make use of a Kirin processor, surprisingly, but it mounts the Qualcomm Snapragon 625 , with an 8-core CPU and the Adreno 506 GPU. It is accompanied by 3 GB of RAM, and The internal storage is 32 GB, which can be expanded with microSD cards up to 256 GB.

The photographic device is very complete on paper, with a main camera with a 16 megapixel sensor, f / 2.0 focal aperture, optical image stabilizer , and double LED dual tone flash . The front camera is 8 megapixels.

Other features

As for the other features, we are facing a smartphone with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and EMUI 4.1 inside, 3340 mAh battery, USB Type-C, possibility of using it with two SIM cards at the same time , and as we said before, New generation fingerprint sensor.

Huawei Nova Plus reviews

The Huawei Nova Plus is a terminal that we liked in general, hence our note of notable high. We consider it a good bet by the Chinese firm within the premium mid-high range sector , with aspects in which it is strong, see performance or photographic section, and aspects in which it is very strong, such as the one worked Design or autonomy.

It also has things to improve, such as the screen, which although it is good, does not reach the level we expected attending other Huawei devices , or how not, its personalization layer. In short, we are facing a highly recommended terminal that, without being spectacular, will probably sell very well.

Positive points

Design : Its materials, its design line, its thickness, its colors, and its measures, especially the thickness, have convinced us.

Battery : Its 3340 mAh capacity allows us to reach the end of the day without problems

Bad points

Screen : Its brightness level and color intensity have seemed too low. The “fake” frames have not liked us either.

Software : Yes, EMUI is improving little by little, but it is still not what we would like.
