Digital Camera World Verdict

The Honor 200 Pro treads the line between flagship and midrange masterfully. Its camera is versatile enough for pros while also being simple for novices. The Studio Harcourt portrait features encourage a more classical take on portrait mode photography than much of the competition, and with a great screen, plenty of power, 512GB storage, and day-long battery life, Honor strikes a winning balance for the price.

If you don't want to pay top dollar but still want a great smartphone camera, loads of storage, decent gaming power, and all-day battery life, the Honor 200 Pro is poised to take pride of place in your palm and pocket. 

At £699 (roughly $880, AU$1,330), the Honor 200 Pro certainly isn't cheap, and going up against phones like the Nothing Phone (2), Google Pixel 8, and iPhone 14, it also needs to be more than just a great spec sheet.
