An honorable view of 20 is the great attitude of the Asian company for the first half of 2019. A flag terminal with several important landmarks, though with some other shade. To your advantage, we have your design with degraded really nice V-shape or the fact that one of the first mobile phones that comes into the market with the camera is inserted into the screen itself. And this is not a camera, as this goal has a no more and no less than 25 megapixels to do selfie.
In addition, it wants to stand out for the solution of its main goal, reaching up to 48 megapixels and making it possible to make zoom in two magnets without loss of quality. And all this with a great battery, which enabled me to use the smartphone for a day and a half or even two days without any problems (depending on whether I had a more or less intense day).
On the negative side, sticking to the slope of the back caused neglect of an important part, such as protection against dust and water. This is not an essential point, but it is appreciated in the premium team that you will not be without a mobile phone if you mistakenly mistake. We must not forget that we are not dealing with a particularly cheap mobile phone. The The entry configuration is 550 euros, but if we want to make an advanced configuration with 128 GB of internal memory and 8 GB of RAM, we will have to go up to 700 euros. An important expense that will take you away from many pockets.
For three weeks, I could use the honorary view 20 as a mobile phone. That was my experience.

Honor is one of the brands that made the most effort to differentiate itself from competition in design issues. With honor 8, the Asian company premiered a very attractive glossy effect on the back using more overlay layers of glass. Trend, which continued with honor 9 and today inherited the honorary view 20.
Of course, with the development of the concept. And that is, the flag flag flag is a bet for a nanostructure behind. At the practical level, this means that it is so thin that it is invisible to the naked eye. And what is allowed to them is create a color dressing that appears every time you move the device. This slope has no classical stripe shape, but a V-reflection that appears in different parts of the back in relation to the position in which we have the equipment.
It is clear that this solution will not appeal to everyone, especially those who are looking for a more discreet and classical team. But I find it a very interesting addition Yes, there is a difference compared to what you can find on the market. After a few days, this is the terminal with which I would like to stay because of its appearance – except for other reasons. And this is not easy to achieve today with a number of similar proposals that fill shop counters.
In my case, I can try a blue phantom version, which is slightly lighter. We also have it in sapphire blue, black and red. The black option can be a great choice for users looking for a more elegant and discreet touch, but still want a different touch. The truth is, at least in my case Honor already fell in love with the blue color of honor 8 and I enjoy this tonality.
Of course, it suffers from the same problem that it shares with mobile phones that opt for the back of a glass or other reflective surface. Svery nice in photos and when you first record them, after a few minutes they are filled with traces that spoil the end result. Honorary view 20 does not take place, although it is true that darker color is more obscure. At the design level, you will get a lot of space when you get a final treatment that is truly protected from songs.
Curves from the rear, not on the screen
In addition to the tilt of the back, Honor View 20 stood out for its shape. The company has rounded walls on the back to make it more attractive and comfortable for grip. In addition, we find phantom blue (this happens the same with other tonalities) also on pages with a more matt finish. This gives a very good sense of unity.
Another problem I see in this design is that it is very comfortable for grip, as well as in the hand slips too easily. This can be a problem if you leave a smartphone on the surface that has fallen.
Overall measurements of the Part 20 View are 156.9 x 75.4 x 8.1 mm.
There is no trace of resistance to dust and water
Here I get the impression that honor could have sacrificed more to get a differentiated form. This mobile phone does not have an IP certificate, which has recently become almost an obligation for top-notch mobile phones. This is not an essential point when buying or not a smartphone, but honestly that special security is appreciated in case we are victims of a domestic accident or when going to the pool or to the beach.
The camera on the screen is there to stay
We fully enter one of the most interesting claims of honorary glamor 20. This is one of the first phones that comes to market with the self-service camera is inserted into the display itself. And I laid my hand in the fire, where it will not be long. In addition to customizable mobile panels, 2019 will promise to be the year that this type of sensor will become popular on the screen.
The advantage of this construction is clear. Hardly occupies a small circuit board, so we almost enjoyed the genuine endless screen. In addition, it serves to terminate the controversial notch or eyebrow that leaves the top of the screen in an unattractive way for many. Personally, this is something that has disturbed the first day, and then it's easy to get used to not giving any meaning at all. In the Honor View 20 case, this previous step has been eliminated and I only realized that this camera is pierced at certain moments, for example, at the start of a movie or a series.
On the other hand, we must admit that Honor in this premier wanted to do things well and was not happy with the result of the hit. More specifically, a a selfie camera with a resolution of 25 megapixels and a f / 2.0 aperture. This is not a very bright goal, but in my tests it has been very well defended in low light environments. Of course, without reaching the level of other leading teams like Google Pixel 3 XL. Honor view 10 includes a night mode that captures several photos and then overlaps them to get a more specific photo.
As usual, we have a special portrait mode that alleviates the features of our face and looks better in photos. I am not the advocate of this kind of software fix because I think that the end result loses a lot of straightforwardness. Even if we go down to nothing in beauty mode, it is still intuitive that there is a certain arrangement, as wrinkles disappear in a suspicious way and the skin looks more beautiful.
She also could not miss the way of extended reality with favorite animojis which we have already seen in models such as the iPhone X or the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The results are still not miraculous, but the truth is that it has made enough progress and captured facial movements in a dignified way. Among the available characters we find a dog, a rabbit, a penguin, or a robot. We can also play with different backgrounds, although most of the songs have a distinctive childlike character. In these tools we will see different sets (in some cases even with music tracking). I'll talk about them later in the camera application section.
Main HD camera
Honorary view 20 supports one main camera. We are facing Sony's 48 megapixel resolution sensor which is combined with a depth sensor. We also have magnification for two magnets without loss of quality, an advantage if we want to photograph objects or buildings that are in the distance.
Is it worth such a high resolution? We have been sold for a while that the number of megapixels has not been the key to measuring the quality of the camera, but the pixel war seems to return strongly. Last year, Huawei included a 40 megapixel camera, and now View 20 stands for 48 megapixels. The truth is, it's not a key element; clarity is more important than a big final photo. In the case of Views 20, the results are pretty good, but I do not think that the camera will compete for the stairs in the market.
Photo gallery shot with a glimpse of Honor 20
Above all, his stitches are seen when we are confronted with photographs in poor lighting environments. Here's a Sony sensor one step by step. Not that it's a bad camera, but I definitely prefer other suggestions like Google Pixel 3 XL, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
An improved artificial intelligence mode is included to improve the results, which automatically changes the camera's parameters to capture better still images. Yes, it can improve some recordings, but this is not the way to introduce a fundamental change. At this point, it seems that no brand has been able to approach the artificial intelligence of Pixel to improve catches.
The entire camera application
The Honor View 20 application is very complete, although it starts to overwhelm with the number of modes it has, and the separation of these modes into two different menus. On the one hand, we have an option in the bottom line AR lens, night, portrait, photo, video and more. Under More, you have access to other ways that we can open before dragging your finger across the screen.
I miss this opportunity to move on to the camera's modes and settings by just dragging my finger (which is present on previous mobile phones). Sometimes it's also confusing that we do not always have the ability to switch directly between the front and the back camera, which will depend directly on the selected mode. For example, in Portrait, you can switch between the two, while only the front camera can be used in Night mode.
One of the most cute ways is the AR lens. Honor also adds emotion to the fever and allows us to animate characters like penguin, rabbit, robot or cat that will respond to the gestures of our face. Here we have two options: create a face with a neutral background or cover it with your face. This second option is not very successful, as it does not even cover the whole face sometimes. It's more interesting first.
Gesture recognition is quite fine – it still does not reach the point of excellence – and you can create quite a few fun compositions that you can share with your contacts.
We also have other options that will allow us to play, such as a night-time way to improve the nightlife or artistic way to get the filters with interesting results.
In addition to these methods, we have several features that you can activate from the higher menu (again in only some ways). The most interesting feature is this one photos with artificial intelligence. If this mode is active, the camera recognizes the type of image that we will record and changes the camera settings to make the most of them. Frankly, this is not something I noticed the fundamental difference. It seems to me that the AI does not need much to do, at least in Huawei and Honor.
Lastly, an Asian company incorporated the feature we saw on Samsung phones. A a viewer that allows us to recognize different items and compare them with items for sale online. The operation was chaotic, with suggestions that are far from the device I direct with the camera (less in some special cases). You can see that there is a long way to go before this feature. I found the translator better, which automatically detects the language of the text and translates it into a language that you choose in a wide selection.
This is one of the aspects that I liked the honorary look of 20. Especially coming from Google Pixel 3 XL, a mobile phone with many attractions, which can not be found. View 20 more than meets the expectations of a premium mobile phone. He could have offered me during a day and a half and two days of use without charging the battery. This is achieved with a 4000 milliamp capacity battery and good resource management.
If you usually give a lot of cane every day on your phone, you will be interested in the honorary view 20, as you do not risk staying in the middle of the day.
Power and internal memory
If you are looking for power, you will not be disappointed by the honorary view of 20. This mobile phone represents the latest Huawei processor, Kirin 980. Today, the strongest things that you will find while waiting for the top of the issue in the first half of the year. And this is along with RAM, which can be 6 GB or 8 GB, depending on the configuration you choose.
The performance is very fluid, both in menus and in applications and games. During these days, there was no opportunity in which you experienced any delay or interruption. Not in vain, this is one of the first mobile phones compatible with the Fortune version with 60 frames per second. This is a more streamlined gaming experience that needs an advanced graphics card. In addition to the GPU, View 20 utilizes the GPU Turbo mode developed by Huawei to improve the graphics performance of its phones.
When it comes to Fortune testing in View 20, I noticed this difference in fluid with other smartphones. As usual, I also faced Honor's smarpthone with two of the most popular test batteries on the scene, AnTuTu Benchmark and Geekbench 4.
Practically endless screen
The presence of a camera perforated inside the screen has a clear advantage: it allows us to talk about an almost infinite display. EThe space occupying the lens circuit is really small and is located in one of the corners of the panel. Thanks to this, Honor reached the radio between the body and the screen of 91%. Not bad
The Honor View 20 screen rises to 6.4 inches and reaches the same level as the number of top-class terminals that have arrived on the market in recent months. Your the format is 19.25; 9, this is more prolonged than usual. When used, it should be said that the LCD screen of this model more than meets the expectations of a top-notch terminal. Color reproduction is alive and the level of light reaches a good level, so I did not have a problem using a smartphone outdoors on a sunny day. I would say there were some cases when I missed the OLED screen.
In addition, the presence of an almost endless screen helps to penetrate the action in movies and series. Of course, in some moments to watch the video I noticed a slight disturbance with the camera hit on the screen.
The resolution of the board Honorary view reaches to 2,310 x 1,080 pixels. This is more extended Full HD. Personally, I think the level of detail is more than enough for the board of these dimensions, although many top-class terminals opt for higher resolution. For my experience these years with all types of mobile phones do not seem a basic point (same as megapixels in a mobile camera when you reach a certain point).
Interesting applications and features
Honorary view 20 shares the EMUI interface with Huawei mobile phones. This is one of the most perfect interfaces that you will find in the Android world, something more invasive than other brands, but with more exciting features. If you are not a fan of pure Android, you can find features that are worth the effort. As always, in this case, it is a matter of taste.
I always had an opportunity from EMUI It performs various functions through the knuckles Since I discovered them in Huawei Mate 8. For example, to make a screenshot, it's enough to hit your finger twice with a finger. To record the same, you must use two difficulty at the same time to hit twice. You can also draw a closed circle on the screen to capture only this area. Or, activate multiple screens by making a horizontal line.
If at the beginning you are more lost with a mobile phone, it has a look of 20 Application Suggestions to make the most of your mobile phone.
Price and conclusions
Honorary view 20 is available in two configurations. The basic configuration includes 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory and has a price 550 euros. In case you want in these sections plus, you can buy an advanced configuration with 256 GB of internal memory and 8 GB of RAM for the price 700 euros.
In short, we are facing a mobile phone that wants to take its place in the most interesting mobile phones of the year. At Price and Features, Honor View 20 A very interesting alternative if you are looking for smart cucumbers, but you do not want to spend about 1,000 euros other suggestions. Among its strengths is the power, the attractive design of the case, or the excellent battery that helped me forget that I have to charge it every night (and it comes fairly from Pixel 3 XL).
On the negative side, its design is not resistant to dust and water, which at this point seems to be basic in the premium mobile. In addition, the casing has a slightly slippery surface that can give you more fear if you drop it on the table. The camera is good, but not spectacular. This excess part is no more than the number of megapixels. For example, Pixel is with its great portrait mode or note 9 with night shots. In short, a mobile phone to be considered in the first half of 2019.
