The Honor View 20 is the future of bezel-less phones.

Chinese sub-brand beats Samsung to the punch… er, hole

HUAWEI SIDEKICK Honor has launched its long-teased View 20, which packs a ‘punch hole’ display and a monstrous 48MP rear camera.

First shown off back in December, the Honor View 20 eliminates the need for a notch by embedding a 25MP camera into its display. A 4.5mm cutout sits in the upper left of the handset’s FullView display, equipping the phone with a 9.1 per cent screen-to-body ratio, and seeing the self-styled “e-brand” beating rival Samsung to the punch… er, hole.

The cut-price flagship is also the first to feature 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor, giving us flashbacks to 2012’s Nokia 808 Pureview which packed a 41MP camera. This comes paired with a 7nm Kirin 980 processor, the same found inside the Mate 20 Pro, which Honor boasts enables its new ‘AI Ultra Clarity’ for producing images with “unmatched detail and clarity”.

This camera can also turn the View 20 into a motion-controlled gaming console, Honor claims, “allowing you to play 3D motion games like never before.”

Elsewhere, the Honor View 20 will packs a 3.5mm headphone jack, will be available in 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB configurations and comes with a 4,000mAh battery that can be charged to more than 50 per cent in around half an hour.

The handset doesn’t offer any level of waterproofing though, nor does it support wireless charging.

The smartphone will be available in four colours – blue, black, red, and, er, “phantom blue”, and you’ll be able to pick it up for £499 (6GB+128GB) or £579 (8GB + 256GB) when it launches in Blighty on 23 January.

Honor also this week launched the Watch Magic and Watch Dream wearables; both offer 50m (5ATM) water resistance, a body that’s just 11mm thick and AMOLED displays. µ

Specs comparison: Honor View 20 vs Honor View 10

In 2018, the affordable flagship category is where the action really was and we don’t see this trend abating in 2019 either. When we reviewed the Honor View 10 earlier last year, we found it to be a perfectly good package that delivered a high-end experience at a mid-range price. One year later, the all-new Honor View 20 has its sights set on everything from the Pocophone F1 to the OnePlus 6T.

But how big a difference has one year made? We find out in our Honor View 10 vs Honor View 20 comparison.

Honor View 10 vs View 20: Design

Honor went back to the design board for the View 20 and completely did away with the humdrum design of the View 10. Where the older model opted for a simple aluminium body, the View 20 is a glass-and-aluminium beauty. A laser-etched “V” pattern on the back adds much-needed flair to the design and makes the phone utterly unique. Like the View 10, the View 20 sports dual cameras at the back alongside an LED flash. We’ll talk more about this in a bit.

Where the older model opted for a simple aluminium body, the View 20 is a glass-and-aluminium beauty.

While the View 10 included a fingerprint scanner under the screen area, the View 20 moves this over to the back. We had no issues reaching out to the fingerprint scanner despite the taller dimensions of the phone. The use of glass and rounded edges have made the View 20 just a bit more comfortable to hold as well.

Honor View 10 vs View 20: Display

Changes on the front are a bit more dramatic and they really bring to light the technological leap a single year can make. Forget having a notch, the View 20 is amongst the first phones on the market to use a punch-hole display. The hole in the screen approach is the latest in a series of design variations in a bid to reduce bezel size and the area occupied by the front camera. Meanwhile, the View 10’s design predates teardrops and notches and consequently, has rather large bezels.

The View 20 opts for a slightly larger resolution at 2310 x 1080 pixels, compared to the 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution of the View 10. For the consumer, this means a slightly taller phone. Indeed, the View 20 is about a millimetre taller than the View 10, which has allowed Honor to cram in a larger 6.4-inch display compared to the 5.99-inch screen on the older model. The larger display and minimal bezels, coupled with the punch-hole camera make the View 20 stand out as one of the nicest looking smartphones in the mid-range segment.

Honor View 10 vs View 20: Performance

Predictably, the View 20 outperforms last year’s model. The Kirin 980 chipset used here is the same as on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and delivers blazing fast performance. Performance is as good as it gets and you’re unlikely to run into issues with gaming, multitasking or even general day to day use.

Complete with dual NPUs, Honor touts a lot of AI-related enhancements but the most visible will be the ones made in the imaging department. The View 20 also builds on the View 10’s GPU Turbo feature and enhances it further for popular games. Expect smoother frame rates all the way through.

The Kirin 980 chipset used here is the same as on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and delivers blazing fast performance.

RAM too has seen an upgrade and, depending on the SKU, you’ll get between 6 and 8GB onboard compared to the 4 or 6GB on the View 10. While 6GB is enough to get the job done for most users, the extra RAM on the View 20 is good to have for future proofing. You might want to spring for the higher end model if you plan to do a lot of multitasking and gaming on your phone.

Honor View 10 vs View 20: Imaging

The View 20 has jumped on to the high-resolution camera sensor bandwagon and opts for a 48-megapixel primary camera. Outdoors in bright daylight, the camera should let you capture incredibly detailed images. In not-so-great lighting conditions, you can switch over to a lower 12-megapixel resolution that will use pixel binning to increase camera sensitivity. By combining adjoining pixels, the camera should be able to produce brighter shots with lower noise. Compared to the 16-megapixel primary camera on the View 10, it would be fair to expect more flexibility and better image quality.

Honor View20 cameras

The secondary sensor on the View 20 takes a completely different approach this time around. While the View 10 sported a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, Honor believes that pixel binning on the primary sensor will be sufficient to improve low-light imaging. Instead, the View 20 opts for a time of flight (TOF) sensor that can be used to generate 3D portraits. Is this something that’ll really catch on? Only time will tell.

Over at the front, the 25-megapixel camera sits within the punch-hole display. Technically an upgrade over the 13MP sensor on the View 10, Honor’s overzealous approach towards beautification features means that fine details get lost.

The Honor View 20 represents a massive upgrade over the View 10.

Unlike the View 10, the View 20 does not have support for microSD expansion but with an option for 256GB of storage, this is not something that users will miss much. The base variant of the phone now ships with 128GB of storage instead of the 64GB default on the View 10. Other changes include a slightly larger 4,000 mAh battery compared to the 3,750 mAh battery on the former.

The Honor View 20 represents a massive upgrade over the View 10.  Between the updated internals and the eye-catching design, Honor appears has done enough here to make the View 20 an appealing upgrade for most. What do you think? Is the Honor View 20 a credible update over the View 10 and does it have what it takes to compete with devices like Pocophone F1 and OnePlus 6T? Let us know in the comments.

Hello Again and Thanks for reading it is I David "Top40" Ellenberger with an update on the status of my lawsuit against Alphabet inc case # 4:20-CV-04877-SVK  and the website and life in general. By now if you regularly visit you may have read this section "author info" or Bio. So I am adding to it with more bio and more info. I originally liked the idea of voting on the internet 20-25 years ago when I first got online with WebTV (does anyone remember that?). The technology at that time was not advanced enough to easily be able to vote online or watch videos or much else for that matter but I was hooked and look at what we can do now with videos, IOT, and everything else, but I digress. I started about 5 years ago and the user base has been going up steadily ever since. I wanted to be another Facebook, with music and voting and that is all coming together slowly but surely. BTW if you want to help or have any interest please feel free to email me anytime.  Now in my previous Author Info or bio page I made it clear or at least I thought I made it clear, I am personally suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud. I have evidence to prove they are not counting all the pageviews, among other things and defrauding myself and probably millions of other website owners and content creators out of Billions of dollars. So if I wasn't clear or you didn't know it's true I am suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud the case was recently moved from my state of Kentucky to N. California to make it easier for Alphabet inc. to steam roll me or so they think. Needless to say if you are interested and I hope you are you can look the case up online under my name "David Russell Ellenberger" or the case # which is 4:20-CV-04877-SVK.

Now, I want to make it clear to you and everyone that I am not suing Alphabet inc. aka Google for fraud just because I want a million dollars for nothing. I am suing Google for fraud because I think they are committing  a serious crime with worldwide and societal ramifications, it is a  very serious problem.  I am suing Google for fraud because to put it simply the analytics numbers don't add up at least not in my favor or yours, there is something very fishy going on with the Google analytics numbers. Of course Google has an excuse for every one of them but I have reasons and the actual numbers and they don't add up, more about the numbers later. Companies like Google are making Billions of dollars a year in profits telling us data is the most valuable thing and misleading us and misdirecting the media and the world every chance they can.  Now data is valuable and they are making billions in profits seemingly like magic but there is no magic to it just corruption and lies. One thing Alphabet inc. aka Google is really making their money from and that is advertising dollars and they are putting all of this advertising on the websites other people have created. Websites that I have created and  websites you have created and websites millions of others around the world have created websites or content. For example Just writing a text is creating content and that's where Google puts the billions in advertising they receive and keeping most of it for themselves. Yes content others have created and yet somehow they are keeping almost all of these billions for themselves and not distributing it equitably to the real workers the true content creators who actually deserve the advertising monies. Google has made it's billions on the backs of you and me. Think about that for a minute, how can they continue to justify this? They Can't, it has to change.

For example if I were to prevail in the current lawsuit just half of the monies or $20 billion put into a basic account and compounded at 5% annually we could realistically employ over 800,000 people at $24,000 a year, indefinitely.  Sounds unbelievable but its true and if we only employed 400,000 people we could pay them $48,000 a year indefinitely. Its all true. Its simply a matter of having the money and the will to do it. Now is 400,000 people a lot well yes it would be more employees than almost any other company in the world and more than half the population of the entire city of Louisville, Ky.

I David Russell Ellenberger through my website am suing Google to try to help right a wrong. A wrong committed by Google that has simply gotten out of hand. Most people may think they can't do anything about it. Nothing can stop Google, the politicians don't care they use all of Googles data to further their own campaigns and line their own pockets while the rest of us keep on creating the content for Google, nothing can be done, this however is not the case, we can do something. The politicians and Alphabet inc. aka Google have done nothing to help society at large other than organize it so they can keep more money in secret and pay off all their buddies with their fraudulently obtained money. It's gotten so bad that the politicians and others in control won't even talk about it, they ignore it and hope it goes away, they won't even try to stop google because it is helping them too much and maybe they are scared of Google or who knows what they may be thinking. But it looks like fraud and it's coming to an end.

I'm telling you we can do something and I David Russell Ellenberger an average citizen Content Creator am saying to you, I'm not scared of Google because I have nothing left to loose.  I David Russell Ellenberger am telling you there is something you too can do, if nothing else, tell all your friends to come to aka IT40, believe these words and Create your Content. Further I promise to you and all who read this if I do prevail in my lawsuit against Alphabet Inc. I will use half of any monies I may receive to pay "content creators" a living wage. I pledge to anyone who is reading this, I will use half of any monies I may receive to help those who really do want to work on the internet and create content and tell us what they think. I will use half of any money so you can Get Paid, I want you to get paid for the content you create and get paid everyday and Get Paid to Vote create data and to be able to do this work online and from your home or anywhere in the world you care to be. Because in the words of an ancient scholar Y-O-U are the business Y-O-U are creating all the data, Y-O-U are the content creators and Y-O-U are all that matters.

Now the main thing I want you to take away form this and to know, Alphabet inc. is and has been committing fraud against you, me and everyone who uses the internet. I don't think Google started out to defraud the world it has just degenerated into this endless morass of corruption and fraud and no one seems to care, Well I care and I know you care too.  Sadly Google has been doing this with impunity for years and it is only getting worse. Please don't let them fool you with their lies and obfuscation. Do some research create some content build a website and research the analytics numbers you will find I am right. Google owes you, me and everyone online thousands if not 10's of thousands of dollars for all the data and advertising dollars they have co-opted from you and the rest of the world. So join with me don't use any Google products or file your own lawsuit in federal court against Alphabet inc. I will be glad to help you any way I can and show you how to do it if need be. It will take a sincere effort on your part but it will definitely help your self esteem, society and the world.

Now that's about all I have to say on this subject for now.  I will tell you this if you want more information or you have questions or comments for me, my email is [email protected] Thank you for reading looking and listening and believing in Please tell all your friends about us and don't forget to vote Thumbs up or down and refresh your page when your done. oh yeah and those funny old men running for president vote on one of them too or not. One last Thing, I need all the help I can get I am only 1 person but together and with todays technology we can move mountains and reframe society and our world the way we want it to be. Thank you ttyl
