    Huawei have packed a ton of value into the Nova 3e. However, they’re not the only brand packing a lot of value into that $200-$400 space anymore - and that leaves the Nova 3e outgunned on a few choice fronts. Read more

    • Great value, Surprisingly adept camera
    • Uneven performance, Weak speaker

    For this price, this phone is definitely money well spent. It comes with all the features of a flagship phone and doesn't lack in power. This phone also has a great camera which is even better than some high end phones. Read more

    I bought this phone today and have to say that it has exceeded my expectations. It is fast, I do have to add that my last phone was a s4 mini. I have also had an iPhone 5s. For the money the specification is excellent. Read more

    • The USB-C & 3.5mm audio jack. It charges fast and the battery lasts for ages. Size is just right for my hand. The face-unlock capability and the fingerprint sensor work very well - they are great, and mean I don't need to swipe a pattern all the time on the screen. It can accommodate a MicroSD ca...
