Review of Honor’s new View 20 flagship phone, a stunning handset boasting impressive specs, a mighty 48MP camera, the new Magic UI software and a punch-hole selfie snapper. Hitting the UK for an asking price of £499, the Honor View 20 (or V20) is one of the best smartphones of 2018 – and yes, it’s only January, but still!

Like Huawei’s Mate 20 handsets, the View 20 boasts a speedy Kirin 980 chipset for premium performance (with GPU Turbo support). No compromise when it comes to the impressive battery life either, with SuperCharge for fast recharging.

Magic UI packs some great features on top of Android Pie, and that camera tech is absolutely incredible. The ToF lens may do nothing right now, but the standard lens captures great quality photos and video in any conditions.

You can see our full review of the View 20’s camera as well as our in-depth unboxing for more on this fantastic value handset. Tempted by the V20? Let us know in the comments below.

    My one question no one seems they can answer, If I buy one can it be used in North America? (Since they're not selling it there)

    Wireless charging is useful when using a phone for car navigation. How are Honor phones for security updates? 3 years?

    Hi Chris. I'm picking up the v20 tomorrow, could you please let me know whether we could put a modded pixel launcher in the device as I am not the biggest fan of the honor launcher. I've heard the Chinese version block any third party launchers. Could you give it a try and let me know. It would be much appreciated. Great content as ever and I really enjoy watching your uploads. Kudos to you. Thanks. Paul
