Digital Camera World Verdict

The Honor 20 Pro proves you don't need to part with the thick end of £1000/€1000 to get premium phone camera specs. While image quality is not quite on par with a top-tier phone like the Galaxy S10, it's certainly good enough for this far lower price point, and the multi-camera versatility only adds to the appeal. If you're after a mid-range phone that sacrifices nothing in terms of camera performance, the Honor 20 Pro should be high - if not top - of your shortlist.

Honor's latest 20-series phones come in three variants: the Honor 20 Pro, Honor 20, and Honor 20 Lite. As with parent company Huawei's naming convention for its phones, the Honor 20 Pro is top of the Honor 20 range.

Boasting four rear-facing cameras and camera tech straight from camera phone masters Huawei (Honor is a youth-orientated sub brand of Huawei), the Honor 20 Pro has been designed to offer premium phone camera performance at a mid-range price point.
