Should You Buy?

Overall, the Huawei Nova 3 is an extremely beautiful, very well built smartphone with excellent dual cameras on both the sides, big screen with good display, excellent performance, latest Android with feature-packed UI, very good battery life, great storage and an IR based face unlock which can work in complete darkness. With all that goodness, it also misses out on OIS and a scratch-resistant glass, which shouldn’t have been the case at this price, and talking about the price, it should have been a lot less. Still, as a package, the Nova 3 is a good phone and can be a buying choice for you if you want to overlook the popular competitors like the OnePlus 6.
