Reviews for the Honor 20 Pro

88.7% Honor 20 Pro Smartphone Review – Quad-Cam and a lot of Stamina | Notebookcheck
Honor packs a whopping four photographic objectives on the rear of the Honor 20 Pro, which is a slight upgrade over the Honor 20's setup. Read in our test, whether it and the rather beefy battery justify the 100-Euro (~$111) premium for the Pro model.
80% Honor 20 Pro review: Camera clout without the cost
Source: Pocket Lint English
What other phone is going to offer three (out of the four) decent cameras in a striking design such as this? Once again Honor has shown its strength by numbers - and while the Pro isn't perfect, as an affordable flagship it's got a whole lot going for it.

Honor 20 Pro Review: With Side Fingerprint is Unbeatable Performance
Source: Igeekphone English
Capacitive side fingerprints are higher than the screen fingerprint in both speed and recognition rate, especially when used under wet hands, the capacitive side fingerprints that can be quickly unlocked are dominant. Also because of the use of the side fingerprints, the Honor 20 Pro back look is seamless, with a compact body and a variety of gestures, it is easy to operate with one hand under the 6.26-inch screen.

Honor 20 Pro review: Everyday luxury
Source: Android Authority English
Overall, the Honor 20 Pro is a great choice for anyone who wants the best performance, a great camera, and a modern design, without breaking the bank. It’s not an instant recommendation because of the potential implications of an Android ban, and the fact that it has strong competition. However, definitely give it a shot if you’ve found yourself tempted by Huawei, but can’t really justify paying $900-$1000 for the brand name.

All in all, the Honor 20 Pro is a great alternative to ever-growing prices of today's flagships even though the handset isn't the cheapest ones around. It enters the premium territory easily. And if you are willing to overlook the IPS LCD panel, the lack of 3.5mm audio jack and the punch-hole camera design, the Honor 20 Pro is an excellent all-rounder.

There are only a few reasons to hold back, and only one is major. For movies on the go, you can now get even bigger screens that don’t have notches or punch holes thanks to motorised housings. Welcome to the future.

The Honor 20 Pro‘s four-camera camera shooting performance is excellent after the actual shooting experience. In the newly released DXO score ranking, the Honor 20 Pro scored 111 points, ranking second, and is the best product in the current glory mobile phone. The Honor 20 Pro has dual four-axis optical image stabilization, providing a good anti-shake experience in both photos and videos.

Honor 20 Pro – Hands on
Source: Cool Smartphone English
So, the launch has happened and it’s now time to get up close and personal with the Honor 20 Pro. Now, before we get into this fully, I would like to thank Ricky West from TechTalk. He has provided us with the close-up shots of the device. I was only able to get a brief hands-on with the Moschino Honor 20 Pro at the event today, so he’s really helped out. Ricky runs a Youtube channel and it is well worth checking out.

Hands on: Honor 20 Pro Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Honor 20 Pro is an excellent phone that combines some high-end specs with a price less intimidating than the Huawei P30 Pro’s or Samsung Galaxy S10’s. If you want maxed-out gaming power, you’re better off with a OnePlus 7. And the Asus ZenFone 6 has both more power, a larger battery and more eye-catching motorised camera.

Honor 20 Pro camera review
Source: DxOMark English
The Honor 20 Pro makes it very close to the top of our DxOMark Mobile ranking, thanks to good Photo and Video performances across the board and no significant areas of weakness. Its zoom performance is topped only by the current number one device, the Huawei P30 Pro; and the 20 Pro’s ultra-wide-angle and macro camera, while not currently covered by our test protocol, should provide added value to many mobile photographers. If you’re in the market for a new smartphone with excellent imaging capabilities, the Honor 20 Pro should be very high up on your list of options, especially if you want to save a little bit of cash compared to the more established competition.

Honor 20 and 20 Pro hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
As always, Honor is offering good value flagship and also a bit more affordable version as well - the regular Honor 20. Both come equipped with plenty of flagship-worthy hardware while keeping up with the recent trends of unique gradient color options, punch-hole camera design and multiple cameras all of which are useful, by the way.

All in all, the Honor 20 Pro ends up being something like a more affordable version of Huawei’s flagships. Honor is not likely to sell this phone in the United States, but it will bring it to Europe and the UK, and the price is set at 600 euro, less than the price of a OnePlus phone, which is definitely very competitive.

What other phone is going to offer three (out of the four) decent cameras in a striking design such as this? Once again Honor has shown its strength by numbers - it's not perfect, but as an affordable flagship it's got a whole lot going for it. Right now, however, there's a huge question mark lingering over future Android software support - and until that's clarified we can't score this phone.

80% Honor 20 Pro review
Source: PC Advisor English
Without knowing the exact price, it's hard to say how the Honor 20 Pro stacks up against its rivals, but if it's £600, then the OnePlus 7 Pro is a better deal. Closer to £500 and it may well be the phone for you if you love taking selfies. But if not, and you don't mind losing the wide and telephoto cameras, then the View 20 should be a tempting alternative, especially if you can live with 128GB of internal storage.

The Honor 20 Pro: A Quad-camera Hands-On Review
Source: AnandTech English
More worrisome than the actual product itself is Huawei’s and Honor’s position due to US Commerce Department’s addition of the company to the trade blacklist, with Google not supporting the vendor with software updates. Currently there’s just better alternatives out there, and buyers might find significantly better value and return for their money if they pay a little more for say a Galaxy S10 or a OnePlus 7 Pro instead of the Honor 20 Pro.

The Honor 20 Pro looks, feels and runs like a premium smartphone, but without the polish or the hype - and, most importantly, without the price tag. It's a slick and powerful mid-range smartphone that will give its competitors a run for their money.

All in, the Honor 20 Pro is a handsome-looking smartphone with a full-featured camera app. We're told the 4,000mAh battery is good for a full day's use, but there's also a quick charge feature (Honor SuperCharge) that gives you 50% charge in just 30 minutes.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Honor:
