Honor View 20 hands-on review
We have been awaiting the release of the Honor View 20 smartphone for some time now, and here is a review that will give you what to expect.
You know, an opportunity came for us to give the device a more in-depth look. There are certain interesting things you might want to know about this smartphone, and we will make you see what makes it stand out. Oppo RX17 Pro review.
Starting with the hardware, it is necessary to point it out that the manufacturers ensured it was nothing but premium. They did these without deviating from the latest design trends (in fact, some people believes this design in particular has set a new trend)
Honor is a ‘modest’ firm that considers the pockets of their customers before slapping a fee on their products. As usual, they didn’t overcharge for this device too (around $435 for the base version in China).
Obviously, it is worth the price if we should consider the stuffs it comes with (one of which is a 6 or 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage)

As for the device’s display, it isn’t quite shabby. You should see a 6.4″ diagonal fitting 1080 x 2310 pixels resolution and getting more than 85 per cent screen-to-body ratio. We should however add that it is without a notch. It came with an IPS LCD panel. However, if you should check the price, then you should be contented with this.
We should also add that you might have some difficulties using it on a single hand due to the extra tall 19.25:9 aspect ratio, plus when we consider the large diagonal.
However, the device stood out with it rear sharpshooter boasting 48MP resolution. It is with a 3D ToF sensor (which is a depth sensor that comes with some other functionality). The front camera is also 25MP – which should be just fine. ReNeweD Etisalat 0.00 Free Browsing Settings On Psiphon
Huawei Honor View 20 Handson review
Huawei made use of some superb technology to create a transparent hole for the sensor of the camera. With this, enough light can pass through conveniently.
While manufacturing the smartphone, care was taken to ensure that none of the light from the screen will find it way into the cavity and interferes with the photo taking. So, just the LGP had to be cut to insert the camera sensor while the other of the layers stay intact.
How about the Battery? 4,000 mAh is impressive and should last you for the day. We won’t also forget it fast charging (the manufacturers are promising a 55% charge in just 30 minutes)
Additionally, the device is made up of the firm’s new Magic UI deviating from their EMUI software. However, don’t be surprised when you see that both currently shares some similar. Nevertheless, Huawei stated that the Magic UI will take a somewhat different path during its development.
