Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Honor, which took place in May 2019 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2019). This is a new model Honor 20 — dual smartphone works on Android 9 Pie, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. Honor 20 has not received support for 5G networks, but this does not mean that this model is bad and does not deserve your attention. Look at all the features of this smartphone and its price. It is possible that you will like it very much and will be suitable for purchase today. And after one or two years, when you choose the next new smartphone, then on the page of all 5G smartphones in our catalog you will see hundreds of smartphones from many manufacturers at different prices.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. Honor 20 received IPS LCD-screen measuring 6.26 inches. And this is a phablete, not just a smartphone. And, even if you liked this model, it′s far from the fact that it will be convenient for you to use it. Therefore, we advise you to hold it in your hands before buying.

And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of Honor 20 is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small hole at the top of the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. The thickness of the smartphone Honor 20 is 7.9 mm. This is an absolutely normal average shell thickness. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 3 750 mAh, which is the average value in the market.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Honor 20. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 48 MP Wide + 16 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate perfectly for being one of the best cameras on the market.

The frontcamera is also in Honor 20. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 32 MP Wide. These characteristics you will definitely have enough to make your selfie photos in different lighting conditions. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Honor 20 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset HiSilicon Kirin 980. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 6 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 8 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications only on the built-in smartphone memory, because the support for memory cards is not implemented here. You are only available 128 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Honor 20: buy or not to buy?

The choice to make is not difficult — to buy or not to buy — we will help you to solve it right now. New smartphone Honor 20 we took and carried out segmentation for the quality of the camera, screen size, battery capacity and processor performance. So, if you want to buy a smartphone with a huge screen, then this model perfectly suits you. If you want to receive super quality photos, you can safely take this smartphone and do not overpay for top models. And, finally, on the performance of the processor, this model is very powerful with a good battery here.

Having dealt with the average characteristics, it remains to understand whether it is worth all the declared price of $285 (without taxes and fees). Here everyone makes a choice for himself and evaluates all the pros and cons.

If something you did not fit this smartphone for purchase, then look in our catalog for a selection DROID smartphones. These are models that are now on sale, and that work under the new version of Android OS.
