Huawei Nova 2 Plus is a mid-range smartphone and is a little better than its brother, Huawei Nova 2. It brough quite a few upgrades when we take a look, but in some others, it has remained as good as it was. And if it was good in the first place, why change it? Let’s start our journey by saying – it looks very premium and it surprisingly cost way less than we thought. Specs are in range with some Nokia phones like Nokia 7. It all depends on which part of the package you’re looking for, and if that smartphone excels at it.

Let’s start with main specs of Huawei Nova 2 Plus. First of all, what shines brightly in our eyes, the main power-bringing peripherals. We have an Octa-core combination of 2.36 and 1.7GHz Cortex-A53 processors, based on HiSilicon Kirin 659 architecture.  To boost things up there’s a Mali-T830 MP2 GPU in the package, along with 4GB of RAM. All that brings a fun, working environment for gaming. But we’ll disappoint you a bit – the newest games showed some fps drops and stuttering in some cases. Nevertheless, it will support and work with any less demanding game you want to play.

It comes in three colors – Graphite Black, Prestige Gold, and Aurora Blue. Just like with its relative, if you’re feeling rebellious and adventurous, go for the blue one. It will show your upgoing personality and really stand out in a sea of common colors, pun intended. Now for the screen size – we’re talking 5.5-inch screen with full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It’s just enough to keep it sharp and vivid as can be, and one of the best Huawei Nova 2 Plus features besides the price and camera. When we’re on that topic, let’s see what you’ll be getting in that department.

We must start by telling you how an insanely good front camera is, and reminiscent of Oppo F5. It’s 20MP of resolution on the front, which is very rarely seen. It allows for a healthy, natural look by using their beautification technology. There are quite a lot of modes to try out, and you just might find a good one for you. We’re talking HDR, Portrait, Night Shot and more. The back one is way less impressive, it’s a combination of 12 and 8 MP, and it doesn’t even have an optical image stabilization. We suppose you can’t have it all in this price range.

And the actual price of Huawei Nova 2 Plus is around $430, which is pretty similar to mobile phones like Motorola Moto X4. It’s time we’ve talked about storage and battery before we decide to call it quits for today. You’ve got a 128 GB of internal memory to fill out with your favorite songs, photos, and videos. If that isn’t enough, you can always add a microSD card and expand it. Where the battery is concerned, it’s 3340 mAh Li-Po technology battery, and quite similar to phones like Samsung Galaxy J7. In the end, it will last you about a day or more of moderate usage, and satisfy your power needs.

    Huawei Nova 2 Plus

    Huawei Nova 2 Plus isn't a huge leap from it's older brother, but i bought it just to see how it works, and it's great! Its 5.5" display, however, isn't as sharp as on the Huawei Nova 2, but it's not bad either. I also like its powerful hardware for this price.
