Honor 20 and 20 Pro review

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

Hey what's up guys hallways sub-brand honor announce the owner 20 and the owner 20 Pro a while ago now and the owner 20 has finally reached the market the pro version is still not there but we wanted to take a look at these two phones compare them and maybe answer the question which one should you get and will for GSM Arena and this is our combined to honor 20 and on a 20 Pro review the honor 20 and honor 20 Pro are quite similar devices with only a few differences between them they're both bound it turned some heads on the street

Thanks that they're stunning glass bill we have ours in the sapphire blue and phantom black colors and the glossy finish scatters the light to create a 3d gradient effect almost like a hologram the pro version looks a little different it's back curves into the aluminum frame whereas the regular honor 20 is more flat you can also notice that the camera module is wider on the pro although the phones feel sturdy and look premium just keep in mind that there is no water or dust resistance with either model going to the front side we see both phones with an almost full screen design with

The exception of the hole punch cutout for the selfie can both have basically the same screen a six point two six inch IPS LCD with a 1080p resolution you do have the option to mask the cutout with a black bar if you want to or you can find a suitable wallpaper to do that for you these displays look good content is sharp and brightness is decent though the honor 20 pro can get just a bit brighter color accuracy is quite good on both displays but at this price point we can't help but wish that we got an OLED screen instead of an LCD black levels are just average here as an LCD you

Don't have the option for an always-on display but you do have a notification LED to let you know if you need to check your phone it can flash in red or green for audio both phones have a bottom facing loudspeaker each has very good loudness but if you turn up the volume you end up with some ringing Distortion if you want to plug in headphones neither phone has a 3.5 millimeter jack but you do get an adapter in the box audio quality to headphones is just average but stereo separation is better on the honor 20 than on the pro version

One difference between the two models is the amount of built-in storage space this is an expandable via microSD you get 128 gigs on the 20 and 256 gigs on the honor 20 Pro you can wake up and unlock either phone with a side mounted fingerprint reader which doubles as a power button if you click it down it's a bit different from what we're used to from Huawei but it's one of the fastest readers we've seen all it needs is a light touch you can also use face unlock to wake up the phone though this option isn't as secure both the otter 20 and the other 20 Pro wrote on Magic ey 2.1

On top of android 9 pi depending on how the us band situation plays out you may not get future Android updates on these phones but you will still get security updates and access to Google Play services regardless by default apps are kept on the home screen not an app drawer though you can opt for one in settings also while there is a Google News Feed panel on the leftmost side of the home screen you can choose to disable it if you want and you can use gestures to navigate and set the on-screen keys it's the same system we've seen before from Huawei and is

Quite intuitive except that on some apps swiping from the edge of the screen to go back may sometimes accidentally open up a menu instead both the honor 20 and the honor 20 perl run on hallways flagship karin 980 chipset the pro version gets eight gigs of ram while the regular model has six unfortunately we weren't able to run our normal benchmarks on these phones due to software limitations probably because of their pre-production status but performance feels quite fast and smooth and the pro version doesn't heat up as much thanks to a more advanced cooling

System the honor 20 pro has a slightly larger battery than the regular version and it did great in our proprietary battery life tests scoring an endurance rating of a hundred and four hours the honor 20 on the other hand wasn't quite as impressive with a score of 89 hours but is still quite good the difference came not so much from screen on time but from increased power draw in standby both phones come with a twenty two point five watt charger in the box and charging speed is about the same in both cases we were able to charge from zero to around 50% and 30 minutes the honor

20 has a quad camera setup there's a 48 megapixel main camera the quad Bayer filter a 16 megapixel ultra wide cam a 2 megapixel camera for macro shots and a 2 megapixel depth sensor in contrast the honor 20 pro replaces that death sensor with a telephoto can also as main camera has OIS unlike the honor 20s and it has a brighter aperture in daylight photos come out in 12 megapixels shots from the honor 20 Pro looked great they're nicely sharp and have natural colors an impressive dynamic range the photos from the regular honor 20 are great as well quality wise is pretty hard to tell the

Difference you have the option to shoot in 48 megapixels – and you can get these shots at boost with something called AI ultra clarity mode these photos take much longer to process and you need very good lights you can sometimes get very nice results though it is quite inconsistent ultra wide shots from both the honor 20 and the honor 20 pro are just average colors are washed out looking dynamic ranges alright though in the distortion correction make sure that you don't end up with curved buildings only the pro version has a telephoto cam and shots from this are quite similar in

Quality to the main cam there's good dynamic range nice colors and no loss in detail at three times zoom even at five times hybrid zoom the camera was able to deliver surprisingly good photos if you zoom with the honor 20 all you get is a digital crop from the main camera with a dedicated lens for macro shots the honor 20 and honor 20 Pro can take those close-up photos which are tough or impossible for most phones the detail is good for a 2 megapixel unit but you do have to get close to the subject as the fixed focus distance is just 4 centimeters

Let's take a look at the portraits these turn out surprisingly good you get natural skin tones in plenty of detail the edge detection is quite nice even with a more complex backgrounds you can also take zoomed-in portraits for the telephoto cam on the pro version and if you have plenty of light these look great here's a comparison with a digitally zoom portrait from the Yana 20 at night performance with the ona 20 pro's main camera is stellar quality is quite similar to the Wally P 30 with a good exposure low noise good detail and

Nicely preserved highlights if you turn on the night mode you get a sharper image it also improves the dynamic range of the photos and reduces noise even further on the owner 20 however the low-light image quality isn't as great as on the pro probably because of the lack of YS and the narrower aperture there's enough resolved detail and balanced exposure but the noise levels are a bit higher than we expected if you turn on the night mode on the honor 20 it does improve the overall exposure and the dynamic range is a boost as well however the images weren't impressive

Detail wise using the ultra wide camera at night isn't recommended without sufficient light you get noisy pictures with mediocre detail on both phones but if you turn on the neck mode you get improved exposure in dynamic range and lower noise but the result still isn't tack sharp you can use the honor 20 pros telephoto camera at night too and we also recommend using it with the night mode as it reduces noise and brings out a lot more detail both the honor 20 and the owner 20 Pro have a 32 megapixel 2.0 front-facing camera with fixed focus selfies look equally grades with nice

Sharpness and detail and natural skin tones dynamic range is above-average to videos can be recorded from the main and ultra-wide cameras and up to 4k at 30fps on both thumbs and you can also shoot through the pros telephoto cam there is electronic stabilization and OIS too in the case of the pro the honor 20 pros main camera does a good job in 4k it delivers wide dynamic range nice contrast no visible noise and punchy colors it's ultra wide-angle cam is still nice but there is less detail around the edges Anthony amick range is a bit narrower on the honor 20 the main

Cameras 4k footage has good at emic range nice contrast and low noise but the level of detail seems to be a bit less than on the honor 20 Pro the same can be said for its ultra white footage is comparable to the honor 20 pros except for the resolve detail which is just average videos from the telephoto camera on the honor 20 pro have a natural rendition and well-balanced sharpness but you can expect less detail and slightly darker exposure compared to the main camera so that's the honor 20 and the honor 20 Pro they give you a lot of the same great

Features and eye-catching glass build great performance nice battery life and a blazing fast fingerprint reader you are missing a couple of things here though I wish there was a headphone jack and some people would rather have an oled screen instead of an IPS LCD so of these two which one is the better deal well the pro version has slightly better battery life and telephoto cam and better camera quality at nights double the storage and more RAM but it will cost up to a hundred bucks more when it becomes available it's all up to you and your own needs but regardless of

Which one you choose you'll be getting a great phone thanks for watching and see you on the next one you
