Android version and market relevance

Honor X20 SE is smartphone of 2021, which was officially announced in June the world′s electronics manufacturer — the company Honor. In addition, this smartphone supports the work of two SIM cards, here you are, and please, the first reason for buying this model (or any other dual-smartphone from the catalog).

In 2021 this new model works out of the box running the Android operating system 11. But in the market of android-smartphones an important factor when buying a new device is the possibility of updating it to a fresh version of the OS. So Honor X20 SE has not received any software updates, which is very sad, so we advise you to look at other DROID-smartphones in our catalog.

There is another feature of this model — it works in the fifth generation networks (5G). This means that you can watch online video in 4K or even 8K quality without loading delay, you can play online games without freezing the interface. All 5G smartphones save battery power and can run longer than on 3G\LTE networks.

Screen, body and battery

IPS LCD frameless touchscreen with a diagonal 6.6″ mounted on the front panel Honor X20 SE, thickness 8.4 mm.

The battery in Honor X20 SE is installed on 4 000 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is a very good indicator, of course there are models with even more volume, but they will probably be more expensive.

In addition to the described features of the body of this smartphone, we will add an important detail. To increase the screen area on the front panel, the producer added very small hole at the top of the screen to fit in a selfie camera and several additional sensors.

Main camera and selfie camera

The most important characteristics of Honor X20 SE cameras: main camera received 64 MP Wide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor, front camera got 16 MP Wide. See examples of photos and videos from this smartphone to visually assess their quality. And the most interesting thing is that the main camera on the back of the body has several lenses (triple camera smartphones). That can do 2x zoom without losing quality. And with the help of at least two lenses, you can shoot portraits with the bokeh effect, this is when the background is blurred and the photo appears like depth. In this model, the selfie camera is on the front and you can see it. In 2019, smartphones were announced with a front camera, which is located inside the body and is not visible. When you need to take a photo, the front camera slides up from the body. You take your selfie, the photo is saved and then the camera goes down into the body. All smartphones with pop-up front camera from different producers at different prices are collected in the catalog. If you are interested in such models, we advise you to first watch video reviews about them, and then make a choice and buy.

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 X20 SE is installed 8-core processor on the chipset MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G (7 nm). 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 X20 SE: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Honor X20 SE got into our price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300” and began to be sold in July 2021 at a price of $285. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Honor X20 SE is a very smart smartphone with a huge screen and the coolest main camera for today, and the front camera at it turned out simply smart. And to all this we add that the battery is of high capacity.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.

Who can adequately compete with such characteristics? We searched and found exactly the same specifications for Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro (China). The cost in China is $235. And this model received a more efficient MediaTek Dimensity 1100 5G (6 nm) chipset, and a screen with support for a 120 Hz refresh rate (with the same 6.6 inches diagonal).
