The Huawei Honor 20 is a semi-flagship-caliber smartphone that's all about photography, blustering with a quad-camera setup that lines up with those of some of the best imaging-driven phones featured here on Phonerated. Its ambitious multi-lens setup consists of a high-resolution 48-megapixel primary camera for standard photographs, a 16-megapixel wide-angle cam for landscape photography, a 2-megapixel dedicated macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor for portrait shots.
Taking into account its other pros and cons, however, the Honor 20 is by no means a flawless smartphone. For one, its storage memory peaks at only 128GB , which does not sound that high-end, compared to the 256GB or 512GB on-board memories boasted by some full-blown flagship contenders.
We also cannot help but mark its 3750mAh battery as a con, seeing that a few models with less-auspicious specs lug 4000mAh (or larger) batteries.
As of this review, this Honor model was among Huawei's fastest, being powered by the AI-driven Kirin 980 triple-cluster eight-core chip that's made up of a dual-core 2.6GHz main cluster, a dual-core 1.92GHz cluster, and a quad-core efficiency cluster running at 1.8GHz. By the way, don't forget to check out our list of the fastest phones here. Its engine is accompanied by a hefty 6GB RAM .
Up front, the Honor 20 touts a 6.26-inch 1080p notch-free display with an expansive aspect ratio of 19.5:9 , bringing to mind some of the leading phablets on the market. Since its does not have a display notch, its 32-megapixel f/2.0-aperture selfie camera , which is a surefire pro resolution-wise, is perched on the upper left hand corner of the display.
Also part of its upmarket array of pros and cons are a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, NFC support, and a mirror glass design of either Sapphire Blue or Midnight Black.
All said, Huawei's Honor 20 caters to tech-savvy users, particularly those who are big on mobile photography.
