Best Honor View 20 Deals

The View 20 is as powerful as any of them, and arguably beats the rivals all with its innovative notchless design.

The rear-facing camera might not win in every category, but it's perfectly competent – and as a bonus, the phone retains the 3.5mm headphone jack. The Honor View 20 is, overall, the best mid-range smartphone on the market today. Flagship calibre internals, strong camera system, and an immersive 6.4-inch screen deliver a truly fantastic experience, albeit with a few caveats. 2019 has only just started, and Honor has set a very high bar straight out of the gate.

Be it through its visually arresting and bold Aurora nano-texture backplate, big focus on gaming and consuming media, and AR lens-toting, AI packing camera system, which seemed geared toward recording and interacting with the user's real-world experiences in a very immediate way, the Honor View 20 communicates this pitch to youth greater that any of its phones to date and, putting it simply, this device feels like it is a flagship for a generation.

It lacks some of the refinements and high-end features of the very best smartphones money can buy, such as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Note 9. However, the View 20 in general (but not always) successfully sheds these as superfluous for its intended user by doubling its focus on what the generation wants and doing so while maintaining a flagship core spec at a far from flagship price point.

As such, whether or not the Honor View 20 is the right flagship phone for you will largely depend on who you are and what you prize from a phone. Naturally, it will also depend on how much you are prepared to spend on a phone, too, which is where this full Honor View 20 review now begins.

What's in the box?

The Honor View 20 comes in two hardware variants, a 6GB/128GB model, and a 8GB/256GB model.

In terms of price, the 6GB/128GB variant costs £499, while the 8GB/256GB model rings in at £579.99.

Lastly, in terms of colourways, the Honor View 20 is available in Sapphire Blue, Midnight Black, Phantom Red and Phantom Blue (the model tested). Importantly, which spec model you get determines which colourways you can choose from, though, with the 6GB/128GB model coming in Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black, and the 8GB/256GB version coming in Phantom Blue and Phantom Red.

Currently a few retailers such as Carphone Warehouse are running a promotion on the Honor View 20 whereby if you purchase or upgrade to the new handset before February 6 then you can claim a free Honor Watch Magic worth £179.99.

In the Honor View 20 box you get the phone, a see-through case, as well as a power plug and USB Type-C cable. Paperwork and a SIM card extractor tool completes the package.
