The Honor 20 pro is scheduled to receive Magic UI 3.0 update which will bring Android Q to the phone. Our Editor-in-Chief, Mishaal Rahman, had the opportunity to try out EMUI 10 beta based on Android Q beta at the Huawei Developer Conference.

Check out our video where we take a look at a day in the life of using the Honor 20 Pro. Adam explains that he uses his phone in a manner much like many people use a laptop. He’s always watching videos, using messaging apps, social network apps, and playing games. Adam took the Honor 20 Pro out on a pretty typical day that involved riding the train with poor reception and navigating around with Google Maps, both battery-draining tasks. That goes along with all the other things you use a phone for in a day, like browsing the web and taking photos. Read more.
We put the Honor 20 Pro’s camera to the test with video stabilization & night-mode photography. First, Daniel tried out the video stabilization in a few of the different modes you can shoot video with. The Honor 20 Pro utilizes both optical and electronic image stabilization to get pretty impressive results. There is a little bit of wobble to the video still, as you would expect, but for the most part, Honor does a great job at stabilizing things. You can see the results of the test in this video.
