Reviews for the Honor 20i

60% Honor 20i review: An adept all-rounder
Source: Gadget Show English
At 14,999, Honor 20i gives you a good-looking, neat and sturdy design. It is a lightweight phone with an impressive and neat UI that's easy to manage. Battery life is long enough to last you a day on some average usage. The rear cameras work beautifully during the day and the front one shoots nice selfies, only the ones in low-light are not that satisfactory.

70% Honor 20i Review

The Honor 20i appears to be a capable phone, even if it isn't as capable as some other lower-priced options. Performance-wise, the phone manages to handle productivity tasks with ease and can also hold its own when it comes to gaming. EMUI is loaded with features, which offers some value over stock Android.

83% Honor 20i Review – Affordable Smartphone with Good Camera
Source: Gadget Diary English
The Honor 20i is good looking and ergonomic, has average performance hardware with ample storage, and good selfie and rear camera performance. On the downside, the battery backup is average with no type C port or fast charging. If you aren’t into high-end mobile gaming and are a moderate user, the Honor 20i is a decent option that you may consider in the sub-15K segment.

72% Honor 20i Review – Good Cameras Let Down by Average Chipset
Source: Tech PP English
The Honor 20i provides an all-round camera experience for the price of Rs. 14,999 and comes with a design that is attractive and a form-factor that is handy. The major area where it lags behind the competition is in terms of rigorous performance and slightly sluggish UI. If you’re solely looking for a camera-oriented option with support for a wide-angle lens, you can pick up the Honor 20i. The Redmi Note 7 Pro and Realme 3 Pro seem like more of a complete package with larger batteries, better chipsets, and cameras that perform well, although they lack a dedicated wide-angle lens.

HONOR 20i Review
Source: Fone Arena English
At a price tag of Rs. 14,999, the HONOR 20i is decent mid-range smartphone with a good display, attractive design, good performance and worthy cameras with AI, including a good wide-angle camera. It lacks fast charging and uses micro USB port, which is the only major drawback, which the company should work. Othe options in the price range includes the Redmi Note 7 Pro, Realme 3 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy M30.

70% Honor 20i review: Impressive design, performance make it no-nonsense phone
Source: Business Standard English
The Honor 20i is a complete package in the budget smartphone segment. It has an impressive design, potent cameras, sleek performance, optimised operating system and capable battery. Go for the Honor 20i if you are looking for a no-nonsense budget smartphone. However, be aware that there is a cloud over the phone’s OS and security upgrades, both of which are currently in a limbo due to an ongoing tussle between Huawei and the US administration.

In general, for the average user who prefers the appearance value and wants to choose a versatile and balanced mobile phone, especially the young people, the Honor 20i is a tailor-made model.

ARM Mali-G51 MP4: Integrated mid range graphics card with 4 clusters. Beware the results in the Mate 20 Lite, that detects benchmarks and boosts the performance.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Kirin 710: ARM based octa-core SoC containing four Cortex-A73 cores for performance tasks (up to 2.2 GHz) and four Cortex-A53 cores (up to 1.7 GHz) to save power. Furthermore, the SoC integrates an LTE radio (600 MBps down) and a ARM Mali-G51MP4 GPU. The SoC is manufactured at TSMC in 12nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).

71%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
