What’s in the box?

The box contains the 20 Pro, a cable and plug, a headphone adaptor and various paperwork.

A Closer Look

Using the Honor 20 Pro

Here are a selection of photos taken with some of the various photo options on the 20 Pro. The photos themselves look significantly better than they do here as the ones in this review has been optimised for the web.

Final Thoughts

The Honor 20 Pro has a 6.26 inch LCD display which is just beautiful, whilst it may not be OLED, it’s still very very good. The clarity is great and everything just jumps out at you from the screen and its a joy to look at. The screen gives you 1080×2340.

One of the standout features of the 20 Pro is the camera, or rather multiple cameras. There are four cameras on the rear of the 20 Pro and one on the front. The four cameras on the rear protrude out of the back so you can’t lay the phone down flat, but that shouldn’t really be an issue.

So those four cameras are a 16MP Super Wide Angle, a 48MP Standard, an 8MP Telephoto and a 2MP Macro, and they work incredibly well, including in low light and there is even a Super Night Mode for taking pictures late at night.

The main camera has the Sony IMX 586 chip and includes image stabilisation which is another useful feature if you are taking photos on the move.

The front camera is a 32MP selfie camera and takes great pictures too.

There is a fingerprint scanner on the side of the 20 Pro which works very well, it’s also the power button which makes things a little easier to use it. It was very quick to use it to open the phone.

Battery life on the 20 Pro is great, the 4000 mAh battery provides enough power to get through the day and then some!

Using Honor SuperCharge means you can get about 55% charge in around 30 minutes, which can be very useful!

There is no headphone jack on the 20 Pro, but there is an adaptor that comes in the box for connecting up your headphones to the phone. iPhone users have had to put up with this for a while now, so it’s not anything new and you soon get used it. A lot of people use Bluetooth headphones these days so this shouldn’t really cause much of an issue for most people.

Powered by a Kirin 980 AI chipset, GPU Turbo 3.0 gives you a full-frame gaming experience so if gaming on a smartphone is important to you, you wont be disappointed.

There is 256GB of onboard storage, however there isn’t any way to increase the storage with a microSD card as there just isn’t one on the phone – which is a shame.

The Honor 20 Pro is available now priced £549.99 and is available in Phantom Black or Phantom Blue. If you want a great smartphone with amazing cameras then look no further than the Honor 20 Pro.
