Speaking about the size of Nova Plus, one would like to use the word "typical". It has typical dimensions and weight for its diagonal, in the hand it feels like most other 5.5-inch models. Not heavy and not light, not thin and not thick.

The device has an excellent display with excellent characteristics. It has natural color reproduction, a large margin of brightness and maximum viewing angles. The oleophobic coating is good, the finger glides easily, and the prints are rubbed off quickly. Of course, the P9 has a better display, but for most users, the screen quality in Nova Plus is enough for the eyes.

The smartphone has a separate "eye protection" mode, when it is turned on, the color scheme goes into warm tones. If you wish, you can even fine-tune the color reproduction to suit your preferences.

Huawei Nova Plus

I have been testing Huawei smartphones for a long time and see that they are gradually improving their shell, for example, they have already got rid of stupid circled icons, solved the problem with missed notifications, added several new features. Somehow I will definitely tell you about their shell separately.

Since we have a mid-range smartphone, the chipset is used at the appropriate level. However, do not forget that now the difference between mid-range and top-end processors is visible mainly in synthetic tests. According to my feelings, Nova Plus worked about as fast as the same P9 Plus.

At the presentation of Nova Plus, a lot was said about the selfie camera, in particular, about the soft makeup function. It works great if a girl wants to just touch up her lips, but if you want to do a full makeover with this camera, then you will look like in the photo below.

As for wireless interfaces, it is worth noting the lack of dual-band Wi-Fi, as well as MiFare Classic support for using the device as a travel card. Traditionally for Huawei, I will praise the excellent signal quality in Nova Plus, the device catches the network much better than the same iPhone 6.

Conclusion

There are no complaints about the quality of speech transmission, you and your interlocutor can hear each other perfectly.

Huawei Nova Plus

At the presentation, they said that Nova Plus will be sold for 429 euros, that is, approximately 31,000 rubles in Russia. At the moment, it is not known whether this device will be sold here, Huawei first decided to bring the younger Nova model to the market.

But if we imagine that the Russian office would sell this model for 25-27 thousand, then we would have an excellent successor to the popular Honor 7.
