Honor 20

The Honor 20 Series of smartphones was introduced to the World earlier this year and like so many of Huawei/Honor's devices, there's a real focus on photography

In the Series is the Honor 20 Pro, Honor 20 and Honor 20 Lite giving various options, at various prices, so there's something for every type of smartphone user. As well as price differences, there are also some changes under the shiny exterior that make the three smartphones slightly different, too. 

On test, we have the Honor 20 smartphone with a 48MP f.1.8 main camera, 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle, 2MP f/2.4 macro lens, which can focus within 4cm of your subject and a 2MP f/2.4 depth assist sensor. The selfie camera is 32MP and is built into the screen (there's a very small hole) so there's no notch taking up valuable screen space. 

Talking of the screen, it measures 6.26-inch and as there's no top-notch and bezels are thin, it does look impressive. 


Honor 20


As you'd expect from a brand which focuses on photography, there are plenty of features built into the camera app, including a Super Night Mode which promises good low light performance. 

Other features include a 3750mAh battery, Kirin 980 processor, NFC and a fingerprint sensor on the screen.

Price-wise, the Honor 20 is £399 for the 6GB + 128GB version which seems to be very reasonable with the specs on offer. It also means it slots into an already very crowded mid-range price bracket so the Honor 20 smartphone does have a lot of competition. 

We'll be looking at how the Honor 20 smartphone performance as we progress with our review but for now, have a look at the sample photos we've captured with the device so far.
