Honor View 20 review: Pretty and (mostly) premium

 

Despite a price tag far lower than that of high-end flagship phones, Huawei's Honor View 20 packs a handful of forward-looking features that some people will be able to use right away. There's that 6.4-inch display that proves that life with...

Excellent design and build quality ; Multi-day battery life ; Mostly great performance ; Proves hole-punch displays aren’t terrible ; AI Ultra Clarity photos are impressively detailed

Huawei’s software still needs polish ; Display has some touch latency ; Questionable US launch plans ; No water resistance or wireless charging ; Regular camera experience

For now, at least, continued tension between Huawei and the US government means the odds of being able to buy one of these in a big-box store grow slimmer by the day. While those of us in North America probably won't experience what the View 20 brings...

Honor View 20 review, features, price: This could be Honor's best device ever and it's packed with tech including a 48MP camera and unique notch.

New screen design looks great and deals with the notch issue ; Good battery life and very fast charging ; A headphone jack ; Very capable camera

Strange performance quirks ; Software still needs work ; No wireless charging or IP rating

With flagship phones becoming more expensive – no one is expecting the upcoming Galaxy S10 to come at a price that’s anywhere close to this – the View 20 is the ideal antidote.

Honor View 20 review: A hole new idea

 

The first phone outside of China to ditch the notch in favour of an in-screen front-facing 'hole-punch camera'. Is the V20 innovative or simply mad?

Superb battery life ; Huge screen that can truly full-screen apps due to front-facing hole-punch camera ; Striking design and colour options ; There's a 3.5mm headphones jack ; Heaps of power on tap makes for flagship-like functionality

Front-facing hole-punch camera can get in the way for certain apps ; There's no in-screen fingerprint scanner ; LCD rather than OLED panel ; Some Magic UI 2 / EMUI 9 software foibles ; Poor speaker phone position and quality

As the first phone outside of China with a 'hole-punch' front-facing camera - a largely successful, but sometimes distracting solution to the notch - it's easy to judge this phone on this aspect alone. But the Honor V20 is so much more: with great...

Honor View 20 review

 

A great View

Great battery life ; Intriguing, smart camera ; Intelligent use of the punch hole display

No wide or zoomed rear lenses ; That finish is an audience-divider ; No official water resistance

Advanced features, great battery life and a good price: the only real part to put you off the Honor View 20 is that ambitious shiny finish.

Honor View 20 Review

 

The Honor View 20 brings incredible value and performance for photo lovers and gamers but watch out for the price in your market

Beautiful full view design ; Class-leading camera performance ; High-end Kirin 980 processor

Display performance could be better ; Wide price differences between markets

Honor View 20 review: A superb flagship phone, with a large notchless screen and an irresistible price

 

With its in-screen selfie camera and 48-megapixel rear shooter, the Honor View 20 is one of the most exciting phones we've seen in ages

Superb notch-free design ; Excellent cameras ; 3.5mm headphone jack

Disappointing display ; Mediocre battery life ; No waterproofing

For £500, the View 20 is an incredible package: it’s worth remembering that the phones I’ve compared it go up to £889. Yet View 20 is as powerful as any of them, and arguably beats them all with its innovative notchless design. The rear-facing camera...

Buy the brilliant Honor View 20 and get a free smartwatch

 

SIM-free and contract deals are available

One of the first smartphones of 2019 has certainly set a high bar for the year ahead. The Honor View 20 is a brilliant handset, packing Huawei’s super-fast 7nm Kirin 980 chip for superb performance. It also does away with the notch once and for all,...

Honor View 20: The first standout phone of 2019

 

Huawei piles up the specs, not the price.

The Honor View 20's mesmerizing design draws you in. Its 6.4-inch screen feels truly edge-to-edge. High-end features include a 48-megapixel camera, a long-lived battery, a speedy processor and 128GB starting storage space.

Several photo effects fall short or plain don't work. Huawei's political troubles mean the Honor View 20 will be hard for some to find.

Despite some software drawbacks, the Honor View 20 is a standout midprice phone with nearly everything.
