Design and Display
Putting its simplicity aside for a short while, it’s something we haven’t seen before and looks quite different from all other devices around. Comes in some eye-catching colors and has a very striking “V” pattern etched into the rear glass. It’s a gorgeous pattern and shines when light reflects off the rear panel. It’s fairly manageable in one hand and comfortable to hold too. Going around it, it has a power and volume rockers outright and a single USB-C port along with speaker and microphone on the bottom. There is a headphone jack on the top, though.
The handset comprises a 6.4-inches screen with a maximum resolution of 1080 x 2310. It’s partnered with good and wide viewing angles which ensures an immersive visual while playing 3D games or watching HD movies. You can enjoy games like Modern Combat, Asphalt 8 and a lot more.
- Storage and Camera
Both 128GB and 256GB models are being offered to accommodate all of your stuff such as videos, images, and files. Do you want to take the storage to the next level? No, you can’t as no one is allowed to expand it any further. For shutterbugs, Honor View 20 comes with 48MP + TOF camera lenses outback whereas a 25MP solid and quality-oriented selfie snapper is holding its position at the front. It’s associated with a dual-LED flash which can be used to capture detailed and colorful images as well as videos in low-light condition.
Performance and Battery
Performance-wise, it’s up to snuff as it is armed with HiSilicon Kirin 980 Chipset – similar to Honor Magic 2. The processor is coupled with 6GB/8GB of RAM which obviously delivers a super-smooth and silky performance without showing a sign of lag whether you play heavy games or work on multiple apps.
Very much like Huawei Mate 20, Honor View 20 sips juice from a non-removable Li-Ion 4000mAh battery which lasts for more than a day with light use and with heavy use, on the contrary, it lasts for a single day without any issue.
