Honor 20 Hands-on: 5 cameras on a budget

Honor 20 Hands-on: 5 cameras on a budget

The Honor 20 series was announced late last month, and as we’ve seen become quite common, there are “Pro” and “standard” models. The Honor 20 Pro has been getting most of the attention, but the Honor 20 is no slouch either. XDA TV’s TK Bay just shared his hands-on with this device.

One of the noteworthy features of the Honor 20 Pro is the quad-camera setup on the back. Despite being the more budget-friendly model, the Honor 20 also has four cameras on the back (five total). However, instead of having a telephoto lens, there is a depth-sensing camera in its place. For about 100 Euros less than the Pro model, the Honor 20 doesn’t make many compromises. Check out the video below to see a nice overview of this phone.
