DxOMark

If you’re in the market for a new smartphone with excellent imaging capabilities, the Honor 20 Pro should be very high up on your list of options, especially if you want to save a little bit of cash compared to the more established competition.

- Paul Carroll, DxOMark
Coolsmartphone

A great option if you need an all singing all dancing phone for a reasonable price. Not perfect but not far off.

- Garry Clark, Coolsmartphone
Ubergizmo

The Honor 20 Pro performs very well at its price point and achieves the goal of providing excellent photographic capabilities. Overall, the Honor 20 Pro camera is vastly superior to the iPhone Xs camera, thanks to its low-light performance, high-powered zoom, and ultrawide versatility.

Although the Honor 20 Pro doesn’t challenge the top performers overall, good exposure, white balance, and noise control ensure that it delivers pleasant selfies in most conditions. Add to that a good video performance, and the front camera is a competent, if not stellar, addition for those primarily interested in this device’s impressive specs and excellent main camera.

DxOMark

Good overall achievement for a mono speaker

from DxOMark

Our expectations before we tested the Honor 20 Pro may have been raised because of the good test results of its camera capabilities when launched in May. However, the overall results for audio were rather disappointing: the speaker scores were inadequate (but not the worst), although spatial playback was a particular problem.

The Honor 20 Pro is a mostly great phone, and for the most part, I have enjoyed using it over the last few weeks. But at £550, I’m not sure mostly cuts it. At £550 why is there a zoom camera that isn’t really used? At £550 why is there a pretty unreliable and somewhat slow fingerprint scanner that is awkward to use for a portion of the population?

Another stunning design, another Kirin 980 device

from Neowin

The fact that it has a beautiful and unique design is definitely something that matters. When you pull out your phone, you want to feel good about it, and you want others to see it as well. With great battery life, performance, and a solid camera, it's tough to go wrong at €599.90.

It has more than enough power to steam role through the daily tasks that one would place upon a phone. I have been getting very respectable battery life – charging it just twice since receiving the device on Saturday morning. The early impressions of the camera are extremely encouraging and it you can see how the DXO Mark score was achieved (it scored 111).

The best camera in the mid-range market, backed by good performance and long battery life

from The Guardian

The Honor 20 Pro offers a lot of camera for £550, getting you closer to the action and with a greater versatility than some phones that cost twice as much. The rest of the phone is good too.

The Honor 20 Pro offers a lot of camera for £550, getting you closer to the action and with a greater versatility than some phones that cost twice as much. The rest of the phone is good too. It’s slick, isn’t enormous, has top performance and long battery life. The software is solid too, but there’s still the Trump-China trade war lingering over things that could cause issues with Android security and version updates should it escalate.

It comes reasonably close to last year’s flagship - the P20 Pro, but with the addition of a super wide angle camera. The Honor 20 Pro’s triple-camera line-up (I’m choosing to ignore the macro camera) gives you great flexibility to move between super wide angle and a 3x optical zoom, and should be the ideal setup for most amateur photographers.
