After weeks of testing out the Honor View20, we really like the camera very much. The pictures looks sharper and more detail than before. Night shots turns out to be pretty decent with little noise. Similar to the other models, there are also modes like slow motion, Light painting which you can experiment with.

In terms of performance, the speed is on par with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro as both are based on the same Kirin 980 processor. When compared to the snapdragon 845 smartphones, it wins some and lose some. 

I am not sure if it is me but having the camera at the rear upper centre of the phone is easier for photography. 

As for charging,  we did a test and yes it does charge up to 50%-55% within half an hour. The charging is pretty fast till it reaches 90%. For a full charge to 100%, it took 1 hr 35 mins (1010 to 1145). Certain features like AI calorie reader are missing in the firmware. VoLTE support for TPG is also not there.  We expect a new firmware update to enable these features.

So, if you like night photography, the Honor View20 is definitely worth a consideration in terms of costs and it’s capabilities. 

Currently, the Honor View20 8GB / 256B retails at SGD 829 and

Honor View 20 6 GB / 128 GB retails at SGD 699
