  • Im using huawei nova's so awesome 4n.

  • Oreo update is available now. Check huwaei firmwarefinder

  • Is this phone even a good phone because, i had a huaweil p8 lite and p9 lite and i'm not a fan of the mid-range devices of the brand Huawei. Mostly they are very poor made and offer not that much quality. I'm really interested to know the opinion about this phone from someone who actually has one. P.S. Right now I have a sony xperia xz1 compact

  • But I bet that your phone will not compete with the first Hauwei Nova ask anyone who has it and they will tell you, I have one to and I'm telling you it makes other new Hauwei midrange phone's look like toys because they can't compete with it

  • Available in thailand for sure

  • Good

  • Is this phone has screen mirror facility?

  • What is the SAR unit of the HUAWEI Nova 2i & OPPO f5

  • no, it hasn't

  • does it have nfc ?

  • Can Anyone Let Me Know Whether Its Portrait or Not?

  • Guys please help me with these questions..... #Does this 4n has otg??? #People say this 4n lags so it true?? # how about the os???

  • I've this one but sometime phone has lagging 😴

  • Hello friends, how is the battery life of this phone? Thanks.

  • As of January 9, it is decided that this phone will be introduced to Japan It was done ... It's slow! It is too late!

  • Kirin has less graphics support, thats why its lagging.

  • Dunno why this mobile phone lags so much. Have one this model with my wifey With 4gb of ram and so wondering why it lags most of the time. My other phone Infinix Note Pro (a not so so branded name) which in 3gb of ram runs smoothly than this Nova 2/2i. I just cant believe the in between comparison of the two that Infinix wins in most of its features especially in fast testing of the apps. Is there a way of updating its new OS version to fix the bugs of this Nova 2/2i ? Thank you Nova

  • i want know that there is some problem touch sensor?

  • Hello friend, Does this phone have gyroscope sensor? Many reviews say it doesn't have one?.

  • Hello Friend, Does this phone really have gyroscope sensor, many reviews don't say so?

  • Hello friends, does this phone has notification led?

  • Nope.. its not

  • Is it available in Cambodia?

  • Is it available in Philippines?

  • I fond it: This phone Os in 3 versions. LTE bands Of all :

  • Yes

  • Yes it has built it fm radio. But no IR blaster

  • This phone have band 5 LTE??

  • Which LTE bands / frequencies have this phone (have it 800 MHz)?

  • This is the most compact phone with a dual primary cam setup and still has a pretty good battery size. It's a shame this was not available to more markets.

  • Does it have ois?

  • Does it have good gps?

  • You can change the colour of the apps and the layout of some things in the settings

  • Huawei nova 2 is a phone I like because........ its 5 inches

  • is there any gorilla glass protection?

  • No MHL feature, No NFC for transactions.

  • Is it right that there is no fm radio and not capable of usb otg?

  • s honor 8 DTS sound is better than Nova 2 plus's Huawei histen 3D doing effect ? using headphones

  • No NFC for 330€??? Get p10 lite instead, it's a much complete package

  • Specs says "no radio" I read ...

  • Had a couple of days and best decent size phone I have had. Performance wise not noticed any difference to P10 good speaker and great camera in good light and fair in night light very pleased

  • review please

  • Is this mobile has fm radio

  • i love this mobile very much

  • Is this phone will be available in Europe?

  • Ok thanx

  • From Russian Huawei shop It is written here "Get know more about Nova 2 on the 27th of July". So maybe it is not release date, but only presentation.

  • is it from authentic source dear?

  • Will be available in Russia from 27th July. Hope the same date for other countries.

  • Hi, does it have FM Radio, as the previous one?

  • When in the philippines? I want this!

  • Huawei phones generally have on-screen navigation buttons and not the physical buttons. This applies to nova 2 as well.

  • Any opinion if phone is good? I want to buy this phone as a gift for my brother debut.

  • Quick question: Does this phone have physical home button, back and recents or using virtual button?

  • on 16 June it will be available.. it's price is $362

  • companies often downgrade the price when the new model is about to come.. and it mostly takes 5 to 6 months..

  • Nice designed phone......hope it shall be released here in phils

  • hey all, two questions that most of you asked but maybe some of you will know some more detail: 1. when will it be available to buy in Europe? 2. do you know what will be the price in euro? usually, when they lounge new phone it is more expensive than if I would wait like a month or two, is that correct? Thank you for answers

  • hii this product video 4k ?

  • How much time will it take to release worldwide kindly tell me if anyone knows.. thanks

  • this phone is awesome we are anxiously waiting for this.. kindly release it before Eid.. but looking like it will take approximately 2 months :(

  • I am also waiting bro.. but this will take approximately 2 months :(

  • Please I am waiting for this phone please!!!!!!!! Hurry, bring it out here we are waiting.

  • When it's officially released worldwide, and the gsmarena team gets a unit

  • When will the full review of this smartphone arrive??

  • any IP6x protection???

  • Huawei will only use HiSilicon chipsets and not Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets. Only the very low tier ones have Snapdragon chipsets but are usually 4xx version

  • It has some touch screen problems maybe because u never remove the screen protector? There is a screen protector on the XA1 and u need to remove it. The screen protector sucks

  • yes, a very nice and powerful NFC

  • why always say that the Chinese phones are like iPhones, Apple has that design does not mean no other company can't go that way, was Apple the first company to manufacture mobile phone? If not the Chinese phones, some of you might not have used mobile phones.

  • Since XA1 has some touch screen problem, I might wait for this nova 2, good design.

  • Does it have NFC ? what is the DAS/SAR ?

  • Why this phone looks like iphone i dislike worm bitten apple but at least price is much better and specs are equal. So i m satisfied.

  • Hope it will be released worldwide. Looks like great and compact midranger.

  • hello brother, no that GR3 2017 is Huawei P8 Lite (2017) this model has 2x Rear Camera ;)

  • this phone was released in Nigeria as Huawei GR3 2017 edition a month ago.....priced at 86k

  • Snapdragon 660 please

  • hey sir, i hate front mounted finger prints but would love stock android. Front mounted is in the p-series and vanilla android won't be included since the UI is huawei's selling point...

  • Indeed this phone looks better than the Nova 1 but the GPU AND THE CPU are omitted. Where is the Chipset? The CPU which Mali is that? we need to know.

  • Put the god damn finger print at the front of the screen and get Stock Android instead of that crappy UI and you get the perfect phone

  • its a metal honor 8 lol, and the honor 8 came before the iphone 7

  • All I see is a an iPhone 7 Rose Gold edition with the exact same antennae placement.

  • Huawei HuaiPhone 7 Plus Lite Edition

  • don't see a reason to change from last years Nova, they just add up some ram, extra 3rd grade cam for these days. Where is the innovation? Huawei has 1-2 many similar spec phones which is getting boring. Nonetheless you get a lot of choice from this company with reasonable price. But how many can one change or buy? My p9 lite is still working fine and enough for a mid ranger. If I wanna change, i'd rather go with the S8 or something like oneplus.

  • this is just another iPhone 7 Plus wannabe

  • I hope it is a small compact phone and it has an affordable price

  • Well, 3 points mainly: if it turns out that the real specs will be like these (the listed specs), with a reasonable battery size and with a competitive price, then as a mid-ranger it will be quite okay.

  • I want 5" display 64 storage, 4gb ram
