Honor View 20

And right away let’s talk about another Honor. It appeared a little earlier and literally became the first flagship of 2019. It was this smartphone that received the first front camera in the hole in the upper left corner of the screen. The device turned out to be bright and interesting: a peculiar ornament from an iridescent letter V stands out on the back wall. The history of the View line is also extraordinary – after all, it is a kind of visionary flagships that represent what modern and modern smartphones will look like according to engineers and developers from Honor.

Interestingly, the Honor View 20 runs on the Kirin 980 processor, which is relevant for the entire large Huawei, has a large memory capacity of 6 GB, a 128 GB drive and a capacious 4000 mAh battery. Along with the Honor 20, the smartphone looks certainly interesting and bright. About all its advantages, we wrote in detail in our review. Despite the fact that there is no zoom or over-wide, the smartphone camera does its job perfectly.

Honor 20

Honor 20 is a representative of the current flagship line of the popular Chinese brand. By the way, in the spring of this year, this brand of smartphones became the best-selling in Russia. The picture was slightly spoiled by American sanctions, but now, you can say, everything has settled down, and nothing threatens the smartphone. And given the speedy presentation of their own OS Harmony, there’s nothing to worry about at all. Moreover, his older brother Honor 20 Pro appears on sale. We recommend, by the way, to take a closer look at it, if you have the opportunity to slightly dig it up, especially if you need a triple optical zoom. True, this is a slightly different price category.

Honor 20 is a powerful, modern and beautiful flagship, which received four cameras: the main, ultra-wide, camera for determining the depth of the scene and a macro camera. The front camera neatly hid in the hole in the display. We tested the device, and, in our opinion, this is one of the best representatives of this price category, if we take into account its capabilities and cost. Power, a large battery, a universal camera, good looks – all this is Honor 20.
