The Honor 20 Pro is for the fairly reasonable price of around £25 a month, a good smartphone recommendation. It scores highly in our testing with a strong camera, brisk performance and fairly good battery life. The display is - unusual for the premium class - no OLED, but instead it's LCD meaning colours and contrasts aren't quite as rich. The Honor 20 Pro actually sits somewhere between mid- and premium-class, but this is reflected well in the price, and overall is a good mix of features and characteristics. The launch of the new Honor 20 series was a bit more complicated than usual, with the Huawei subsidiary receiving bad news just days before the official launch. After Huawei was blacklisted by the US government, Google and other American technology companies restricted their cooperation with the Chinese smartphone provider - although thankfully, the trade embargo seems to be off the table. Whatever happens, it's clear that the Honor 20 series will receive an update to Android 10 Q shortly. Under the bonnet of the Honor 20 Pro Unsurprisingly given the current standard of luxury smartphones, the Honor 20 Pro has a generous 6.3-inch display with narrow edges. Only a small hole for the 32-megapixel front camera disrupts the display slightly, but it's so tiny it doesn't matter. The workmanship is very good - the edges are pleasantly rounded, only the conspicuously embossed camera housing feels a bit sharp-edged according to this review. The case consists of a glass jacket in blue, or black that is visually stunning. Some simpler colours are rumoured to be launching in the UK soon, such as white. Honor calls the design "Dynamic Holographic" and states that millions of the smallest prisms are embedded in deep layers. What we finally see is a beatiful phone with a chic glass back, which shimmers depending on the light. This looks very cool, but the back is still vulnerable to fingerprints. Crystal clear photos When it comes to cameras, the Honor 20 Pro relies on a Quattro camera system. The main lens scores highly with a special feature that has never been seen on any smartphone: The 48-megapixel camera captures photos with a light-sensitive f / 1.4 aperture. Such a wide opening in the camera lens has not yet been installed a phone camera, which is why Honor promises pretty much everything, including night photos. Apart from that, we know Huawei's megapixel procedure: four pixels each are compressed to one pixel, so the final resolution of the photo is twelve megapixels. Photos are very good and natural - both day and night. However, the quality of the Huawei P30 Pro can not match the detail here (but then that is a more expensive phone). In addition, we have - as was the case with the regular Honor 20 - on the test shots, especially in the peripheral areas, discovered some partly blurred spots. Verdict on the Honor 20 Pro The Honor 20 Pro draws its power from a 4,000 mAh battery. This meant an averagr runtime of 11 hours in oneCOMPARE's tests - that's above average. But once the device has to be connected to the power supply, the charging process really shines: within 30 minutes, the battery is 50% percent charged. To fully charge the battery once, the device only needs an average of 100 minutes. Honor 20 Pro Price in UK The Honor 20 Pro costs £30 a month on average, with a 18 month contract. Or if you prefer to buy outright, you can buy the Honor 20 Pro in the UK for the price of £549. If you are looking for a slightly cheaper model don't forget the Honor 20 Lite.
