Honor View 20 signals a new era in smartphone technology. Its 48MP and 3D camera system is a unique photography experience, while the powerful Kirin 980 AI chipset and AI technology add extra photography runs. The Honor View 20 is a premium quality mid-range phone. Honor is a sub-brand of Huawei that repacks Huawei phones into cost effective versions, often with the same specifications but with a few key differences: Honor's cameras are not co-branded with Leica as Huawei but still offer 48MP. Honor uses different displays, that don't have premium features such as waterproofing or wireless charging.
The placement of the fingerprint scanner on the back is not as comfortable as the front sensor but It's far enough away from the camera so you don’t leave smudges on it when unlocking the phone. The View 20 is not water-resistant, but we can forgive that for the price, just don’t spill your juice on it.

What we like
The Honor View20 offers the iconic all screen display with a 4.5 mm in diameter camera hole, just big enough to have a 25-megapixel camera underneath. Unlike other phones it’s way off in the corner, almost aligned perfectly with the notification icons. That makes it possible to hide the camera hole by turning the rest of that row black to hide the notch, so you won’t notice it. Only full-screen apps that hide the notification panels will have a small hole in their content and in most cases your brain will eventually trick you into forgetting it’s even there.
What we don’t like.
The display could use some work as its colours are not at bright at other phones and seems to be incompatible with polarized sunglasses but once again it falls down to budget, as the Honor offers you a premium quality phone for reasonable price there are some down sides.
Should you buy it?
The Honor View 20 is an excellent phone for almost everything you can throw at it but is especially competent at gaming. The reliable and long-lived battery life, large screen, beautiful cameras, and wireless tech are real stand-out features. The only minor issues are the super glossy finish that attracts finger prints and lack of an edgeless screen otherwise excellent package. It handles games with ease and won’t burn through the battery. The lack of SD card slot is a disappointment, but far from a deal breaker, and the powerful innards will mean that this phone keeps up with other flagship phones.
