  • High SAR values, only 2.4 GHz WLAN, no App2SD / microSD cannot be formatted as internal storage, only hybrid dual-SIM
  • High pricetoperformance ratio, Poor display visibility when exposed to direct sunlight, Display has no protective layer, Poor lowlight camera performance
  • Expected more from the cameras, after all Huawei's hype, Display not terribly bright nor accurate, EMUI will take novice users some getting used to, No unified “Nova” hardware design, some poor aesthetic decisions
  • Too pricey when compared to the competition, poor audio quality, EMUI still makes unwelcome tweaks to Android, Prev3 of 3Next
