About Huawei Honor 20 Lite - Review, Specs + more

What you need to know

  • Mid-range smartphone with triple camera
  • 6.21 inch IPS display
  • Octa-core CPU and 4 GB of RAM

The Honor 20 lite is a smartphone from the middle price range, which stands out in particular with its triple camera and the large display with small Notch. This measures 6.21 inches diagonally and resolves to 2340 × 1080 pixels. Visually, this smartphone is beautiful - and feels years ahead of the equivalent iPhone.

Great-looking phones at affordable prices is Honor's raison d'etre. If you can't afford a proper flagship, or don't want to pay silly money for a phone, but want similar styling punch and a few of the same features, Honor usually has something for you.

That's the idea behind the 20 Lite, a taster of what the brand has in store for its affordable flagship Honor 20. It's got skinny screen bezels, a triple-lens camera (sort of), hardware that punches above its price and a gorgeous colour scheme.

The only problem is the P30 Lite. The two phones are nearly identical, except a few features. And the small matter of £80. Time to find out if the Honor is a steal at £250, or whether you should stump up the extra for the Huawei.

Like a lot of Honor phones, the 20 Lite is all about faking it until you make it: it looks like a premium handset, with a design that mimics the glass-and-metal sandwich favoured by top-money rivals.

Only here things are made from plastic to keep costs down. You'd only know when you pick it up, as from a distance it looks the bee's knees, with a 90% screen-to-body ratio, skinny bezels, and an ultra-shiny rear panel in eye-catching Phantom Blue hues. This phone is all about looks.  It has a reassuring heft, despite the plastic build, and isn't so big that small hands will struggle to wield it.

The triple camera array sits to one side, bulging out a little but not enough to catch every time you slip it into a pocket. There was even room in the budget for a fingerprint sensor, which is conveniently placed on the back right where your index finger sits. It's quick to unlock, too, giving it the edge over much more expensive (but still early) in-display tech.

A few drawbacks

Unfortunately, only an IPS and no more economical AMOLED panel is used here. The main camera consists of a main lens with 24 megapixels and 2 additional image sensors with 8 or 2 megapixels. There is a phase-focus (PDAF), but videos are recorded without optical image stabiliser and only in Full HD - slightly disappointing.

In addition to the camera technology, the Honor 20 lite impresses with its relatively high system performance. There are 4 GB of RAM and a 2.2 GHz Kirin 710 octa-core processor available. Another advantage is the 128 GB device memory and the comprehensive connectivity. These include WLAN, LTE, Bluetooth, NFC and a memory card reader.

However, the 20 Lite is still charged via a microUSB interface and  the capacity of the permanently installed battery is only average for a device with a display larger than 6 inches.

Verdict - should you buy it?

A good alternative is the Samsung Galaxy A50, which scores higher on our scale, with an OLED display and a long battery life - think of it as like a cheaper Galaxy S10 with less features but still a brilliant phone. Which incidentally is where the Honor 20 Lite sites within the Honor range - the Honor 20 and Honor 20 PRO are better phones, but it really depends on what your budget is.

The rest of the range is as follows:

  1. Honor 20
  2. Honor 20 Pro

If you're looking for a cheap, reliable phone with a lot of oomph and looks to kill, then you'll struggle to find better than the Honor 20 Lite - though if it were up to me I'd opt for the regular Honor 20: it's a small premium worth paying over the Lite model, and has a better hand-feel.

Honor 20 Lite deals: How long does delivery take?

If your device is in stock with the retailer, then most orders will be shipped by them within 24 hours so you could have your phone tomorrow morning. If it's a pre-order then we will let you know the approximate delivery date

Is SIM Only better for Honor 20 Lite?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Huawei Honor 20 Lite, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Huawei Honor 20 Lite ee contract or a Huawei Honor 20 Lite Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Huawei Honor 20 Lite contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.

Out of our 2146 Huawei Honor 20 Lite deals, our cheapest Huawei Honor 20 Lite deal over the entire life of the contract is £331.99, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Huawei Honor 20 Lite SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Huawei Honor 20 Lite handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Huawei Honor 20 Lite Contract.

Did you know? You can compare SIM only deals from Sky, o2, Vodafone and all the other networks with oneCompare!

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contracts, is to consider purchasing a pre owned Huawei Honor 20 Lite phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
