For the price, the Honor 20 is a great all-round phone with top-notch performance and excellent cameras. But the uncertainty surrounding updates makes it a slightly risky purchase when you could spend the same money on the Google Pixel 3a, among other competitors.

BGR

The Honor 20 is an impressive piece of hardware from the company, especially because of its design and the f/1.4 aperture camera. What it lacks is a great software, and I feel Honor is aware of that already.

Deccan Chronicle

It’s targeted at those who don’t want to compromise and those who want nothing but the best. The Honor 20 is an unapologetic beast dressed in a beautiful attire that not just stands head-to-head with the competition but punches way above its weight class in terms of raw photography performance.

The Honor 20 impressed us with its eye-catching design and good overall performance. The phone runs the feature-rich Magic UI 2.1 and rounds it off with all-day battery life. The Honor 20 struggles with colour accuracy, and the benefits of having a dedicated macro lens aren't delivered. The lack of OIS is also sorely disappointing, more so when the alternative provided cannot deliver on its promise.

Honorable, but not exceptional

from TechPP

The Honor 20 comes with a trendy design and a very impressive spec sheet. While it delivers when it comes to general performance, the device disappoints in the camera department.
