HONOR 20 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value (Review after 3 months of use) I have used this phone for 3 months, so I believe my review will be accurate for standard use by now. First thing I will mention, is on this model there is full google access. It has not been affected by the US Huawei ban. Pros: 1) 48MP AI QUAD camera takes beautifully clear pictures + 60fps HD video 2) Decent Battery Life with 22.5 watt fast charger 3) 90hz refresh rate is smooth 4) Powerful Chip allows it to perform all tasks with no lag and is very fast 5) Durable metal/glass design feels premium 6) Decent memory (although no expandable storage is a shame) 7) 32 MP Selfie Camera is very high resolution for front camera Cons: 1) No OIS (optical imagine stabilisation) in any of the cameras (quality is still good though) 2) Not the easiest display to see in very bright sun-light. 3) No headphone Jack (USB-C headphones included with adaptor however) 4) No IPS Water Resistance rating (NB: You shouldn't get any phone wet as water resistance does not mean water-proof) The only compromise between this and more expensive counter-parts is barely noticeable. The display. It's an LCD which isn't the best for colour contrast compared to OLED displays. However, it does have a 90hz refresh rate and Full HD resolution. Battery is large enough to get through an intensive day with room to spare. Magic UI software combines nicely with android and is bloat free. The main selling point for me, is that this phone has premium design, excellent cameras and runs fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome phone! First time I've tried an Honor/Huawei phone and was not sure whether it was a good decision. I needn't have worried as this is a truly excellent handset, I genuinely can't think of any downsides to report at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So useful Dual Sim I have Honor 10 and love it. Honor 20 is a birthday present. I've got to love the Honors more & more with everything I learn is on them. I have read all of these reviews and I'm amazed nobody has mentioned the dual sim. To me that is the overwhelming reason I have Honor phones. So useful to be able to keep a private number and a number you don't mind businesses having for example. I considered an i-phone this time but with no Dual Sim its not a contender. BEST FOR - Dual Sim

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst phone I've had easily Brought this about 6 months ago. Hated it after 1 month but gave it the benefit of the doubt. 6 months later, I just hate using my phone. It's awful texting, emailing, photo quality is shockingly awful. Wouldn't recommend. On top of that it messed up texts with people with android and iPhones. And it took me ages to find a case that actually fits it. Do NOT waste your money or time on this plastic. Even the battery life is poor.
