Coming to the performance, it can be suitable for gaming and multitasking usage. Apart from that, the battery backup is also sufficient to continue the use. The cameras are great to click mesmerising pictures and to store all the files and data, massive storage space is provided.

Display and Camera
The Honor View 20 256GB flaunts a 6.4-inch IPS LCD display having a screen resolution of 1,080 x 2,310 pixels and a sharp density of 398 PPI. The wide display features the latest punch-hole design, which occupies a small space on the top corner.
For the optics, it comes with an amazing 48MP resolution that features Back-illuminated sensor, Exmor-RS CMOS Sensor and an aperture of F1.8. At the front, there is a 25MP lens that captures brilliant selfie pictures.
Configuration and Battery
Under the hood, it has been equipped with an octa-core (2.6GHz dual-core, Cortex A76 + 1.92GHz dual-core, Cortex A76 + 1.8GHz quad-core) processor, which is seated upon the HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC. It is further assisted by the Mali-G76 MP10 GPU for the graphics and an 8GB RAM that is massive enough to handle the multitasking or gaming.
The Honor View 20 256GB runs with the help of a Li-Po battery having a huge capacity of 4,000mAh. Further, it also features fast charging support to fill the battery in a short time.
Storage and Connectivity
The smartphone comes with huge inbuilt storage of 256GB, which can alone suffice the requirement of the users. It does not feature any external memory slot. For the connectivity, it supports 4G VoLTE. Other options include Wi-Fi 802.11, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth V5.0, GPS with A-GPS, Glonass, USB Type-C, etc.
As I mentioned at the beginning of the review, it`s evident that with the View 20, Honor is aiming to blaze a trail for smartphone trends that are expected to go big in 2019, instead of just being a follower. And if my experience with the device is anything to go by, the brand has been able to achieve that and then some more. The smartphone offers next-gen technologies without skimping on the basics of good build quality, smooth user experience and reliable battery life. Of course, the age-old rivalry between Honor and OnePlus continues with the latest smartphone as well, but this time I`m rooting for the former. Not that the OnePlus 6T (review) is a bad phone, but the View 20 simply comes across as a better proposition – and that too, at a similar asking price of Rs 37,999 for the base model. The higher-end version of the View 20 will set you back by Rs 45,999, which is a different territory altogether, where the device doesn`t seem to be as much of a VFM proposition. All said and done, the Honor View 20 is a solid offering and the best one yet to come out of the brand`s stables. In fact, I believe that the handset deserves a near-perfect score… if only it was priced slightly lower to make it an even more enticing proposition.
