Honor 20 Pro: a successful smartphone in all areas

Honor 20 Pro review

Last May, Matthieu provided us with the Honor 20 and also Honor 20 Pro yet we were, at the time, waiting for a main launch day in France. Ever since every little thing is back in order and also these 2 tools are undoubtedly offered. We were privileged to obtain them on lending time. Right here is the examination of the Honor 20 Pro, the very first of both mobile phones that I have had the chance to examination.


The Honor 20 Pro is available in a white box embellished with a mobile phone screen on the top. You can likewise check out the name of the version and also a referral to the brand name on the sides.

Inside, the web content is basic: the smart device, a USB-C cord and also its power adapter along with a sim extractor.

Technical sheet

The Honor 20 Pro is powered by a Kirin 980 chip paired with 8GB of RAM and also 256 GB of storage space capability. It has a 6.26 ″ FullView display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 p and also a thickness of 412 ppi. Like some contending tools, the selfie sensing unit lies under the display. Ultimately, the Honor 20 pro has actually a pierced (or punched) display supplying a proportion of 91.7%.

The opening in the top right edge hides a 32 MP sensing unit supplying an opening of f/ 2.0 while at the back, the Honor 20 Pro has a quadruple image sensing unit: a major video camera of 48 MP, an incredibly vast angle of 16 MP, an 8MP telephoto lens and also a 2MP macro.

In regards to safety, the incurable deals face acknowledgment or unlocking by finger prints many thanks to the sensing unit on the ideal side.

When it comes to connection, it is (practically) full: Wifi (2.4 GHz & 5GHz), Bluetooth 5.0, GPS/ AGPS/ Glonass and also 4G LTE compatibility. By disadvantages, you need to opt for a USB-C port (USB 2.0). We can likewise keep in mind the lack of an earphone jack. You will certainly require to use a cordless headset to delight in songs or video clips.

We can contribute to all this a battery with an ability of 4000 mAh efficient in designating a series of approximately 19 h in vacant playback and also 141 h in audio playback. The various other point to bear in mind is that you will certainly have the ability to get to 50% cost in 30 minutes.

It operates on Android 9 with the Magic UI 2.1.1 home overlay and also its measurements are 154.60 x 73.97 x 8.44 for an approximate weight of 182 g.


I do not recognize if it is the ideal formula for every person yet it holds true that the Honor 20 Pro is effectively created. It has a big display, its density is well managed, it can be utilized with one hand the majority of the moment and also its back deals quite representations.

On the ideal side, Honor does not look for to introduce: we identify the quantity bar along with the power switch. The last likewise serves as a finger print sensing unit.

On the contrary side, there is just the cabinet that can hold a couple of sim cards. I advise you that the Honor 20 Pro can not obtain a micro-SD card. It holds true that it provides 256 GB of storage space capability yet it is constantly excellent to be able to include a memory expansion.

On the top side, once more, absolutely nothing extremely ingenious: an additional microphone and also an IR sensing unit.

Beyond there are the major microphone, the USB-C outlet and also the audio speaker result. No earphone jack for this version, or the Honor 20 for that issue. And also for USB-C, you need to do it with USB 2.0.

The back with numerous representations has actually rounded sides and also specifically a quadruple image sensing unit. We can likewise keep in mind the visibility of an “Honor” in the reduced component of the gadget.

This back considerably adds to the excellent hold of the gadget. Well, it needs to be stated, this behind can swiftly be covered with finger prints, yet if I locate that there is a lot even worse on the marketplace.


As quickly as you open up package and also come across the Honor 20 Pro, you quickly discover its enforcing display simply “pierced” in the top right edge.

Honor chose a 6.26 ″ LCD display. Yes, you check out that right, the brand name made a decision to take place an LCD display when a number of rivals picked Oled modern technology. Completely light we can see the web content yet it can have been far better.

From the Setups food selection, you can transform particular alternatives to get a making and also colorimetry near what you desire. It is from this exact same food selection that you can conceal the notch by making a black band show up throughout the size.

System and also applications

The Honor 20 Pro operates on Android 9 with the Magic UI overlay. The incurable having actually been launched lately, it will certainly gain from updates to Android Q and also to the brand-new variation of the overlay. Concerning the user interface, it is close to that of Huawei.

As kept in mind over, the Honor 20 Pro has a finger print sensing unit on the ideal side, listed below the quantity bar. It serves as a Power switch (by pushing it). I wear ' t learn about you yet I actually value the place of this sensing unit. This leaves a totally bare back and also stays clear of the visibility of a sensing unit on the front. Putting it under the display is likewise a great choice, yet it is much more pricey.

On the side, I locate it rather instinctive. The thumb is positioned rather normally on the sensing unit and also furthermore, it is responsive. It is not the very first to provide such a layout, the Galaxy S10 e provides the exact same kind of finger print visitor. Furthermore it permits to open the gadget when it is positioned on the back, without also relocate.

Many thanks to the image sensing unit under the display, you can likewise open your gadget through face acknowledgment.


We can claim that Honor placed the bundle on the image. The Honor 20 Pro shows up on the marketplace without any much less than 4 sensing units on the back side and also a rating of 113 granted by DxOMark. Tolerable is not it?

If I remember the components of the information sheet, the Honor 20 Pro has a 48 Mpx vast angle sensing unit (with f/ 1.4 aperture), an ultra vast angle of 16 Mpx, an 8Mpx telephoto lens (with optical zoom x3) and also a 2Mpx macro sensing unit (with f/ 2.4 aperture). With all that, we have something to enjoy with. It continues to be to be seen what takes place in actual problems.

The major sensing unit is authorized Sony, it is the IMX586 sensing unit. With this aperture of f/ 1.4, it has the ability to generate much more light. This ought to give far better outcomes when capturing in reduced light. Yet an additional indicate examination.

Let ' s begin with the outcome gotten in the center of the day: the Honor 20 Pro provides quite results. Right here are some photos to reveal you.

The ultra vast angle is considerable yet there are occasionally some distortions and also the shade administration is not as excellent. Right here are some relative pictures.

This Pro variation is geared up with a telephoto lens with x3 optical zoom and also x30 electronic zoom. It in fact permits you to record scenes much sufficient away yet you discover some “faults” when you focus a little way too much.

Prior to taking a look at the making in reduced light, there is one last sensing unit: the 2MP macro video camera. This has the benefit of having the ability to utilize it to take photos of close-up items. The meaning and also the making are not added yet it permits you to have a little enjoyable.

Let ' s return to this “low light” topic. Many thanks to the Sony sensing unit due to the fact that the Honor 20 Pro is quite good. The making is close to truth with excellent shade recreation. This is specifically real when there is still a little light. Or else, the providing weakens with smoother and also much more existing sound.

Many thanks to the telephoto lens, I also had a good time attempting to take an image of the moon.

For video clip, capture is feasible approximately 4K at 30 fps with optical and also digital stablizing.


On the cross-country market, the contending designs on the luxury are the Snapdragon 855 and also the Kirin980 As suggested on its technological sheet, the Honor 20 Pro belongs to the 2nd group and also with 8GB of Ram and also 256 GB of Rom, there is absolutely nothing to bother with. This chip is likewise existing on various other tools of the brand name or team (Huawei/ Honor) such as the Huawei P30 or the Honor 20.

Standard results carried out on the Honor 20 Pro

It ' s not extremely made complex: the Honor 20 Pro replies to the finger and also the eye whatever the usage you construct from it. With this fluidness and also a storage room of 256 GB, there is no demand to count the applications and also video games to mount. He ingests them with such convenience.

Nevertheless, the most significant customers of video games and also multimedia documents ought to keep in mind that the storage space memory is not expanding. You can place a 2nd sim card yet not feasible to put a micro-SD card.

Battery and also freedom

The Honor 20 Pro has a non-removable battery with an ability of 4000 mAh, somewhat greater than that of the Honor 20 (3750 mAh).

Having actually not yet examined the last, I can not contrast them. With an Honor 20 Pro totally billed, we invest the day without trouble with hefty usage yet very little even more and also undoubtedly, it relies on your usage. In typical usage, you can virtually get to 2 days.

Among the large and also of the smart device is its rapid cost compatibility. Theoretically, the brand name introduces that it can bill the gadget approximately 50% in simply 30 mins. It’s intriguing specifically when it holds true. On the whole, it will certainly take roughly 1h30 to totally bill the Honor 20 Pro

For those that are questioning, the Honor 20 pro is not suitable with cordless charging.

Cost and also schedule

The Honor 20 Pro is offered in 3 shades (Phantom Blue, Phantom Black and also Icelandic Fost) at a cost of EUR 499.90 I still bear in mind that when it was launched, it was cost an added EUR 100.

On the Honor internet site, the Icelandic Fost version is not offered. By searching a little bit on the net, you will swiftly recognize that this price is the one billed on all websites.

Final Thought

The style of the Honor 20 Pro achieves success, it provides a great freedom and also its finger print visitor on the side is extremely functional. To this, we can include that it is effective in all problems which it has 4 image sensing units with pretty good outcomes in general. In recap, Honor offers us a well balanced smart device in all locations.
