Following recent events, the Honor 20 Pro might turn out to be one of the best value smartphones you won’t be able to get, ever. No matter how things unravel in the next few months, we decided to make a review just in case because this is Honor’s great alternative to pricey flagships. Of course, it’s not the Huawei P30 Pro but it does give the phone a run for its money.
It has what it takes to be a modern day flagship device – full-screen design (excluding the punch-hole camera, of course), big battery, flagship SoC and a quad-camera setup with all four units having a purpose of their own.
Unfortunately, though, the display is where Honor had to cut some corners. The use of IPS instead of OLED might put off some users, especially those that are coming from OLED and will most probably miss those deep blacks.
