Offering a phone between $300 and $500 these days is a tricky proposition. We recently just published another showdown featuring all of the terrific options you can shop just at $400. This is the hot market now for pushing top specs into more wallet friendly territory, and manufacturers are getting hip to design.
At IFA 2016 in Berlin, Huawei took the wraps off of yet another pair of mid-ranger devices. The Nova and Nova Plus look to replace previous phones like the GX8 with updated specs, and a more cohesive design language, shared with the new MediaPad M3 tablet. Looking at the smaller Nova, we have a 5″ 1080p screen, a new Qualcomm mid-range chipset, and a camera capable of UHD video recording. The design looks good, but does the performance live up to the €399 price tag Huawei announced? Let’s take a look at another pretty phone aiming to part you with your cash!
