Honor 20 Pro is one of the best gaming experiences you can get

The Honor 20 Pro is one of the best gaming devices out there. It’s got the super powerful HiSilicon Kirin 980, Magic UI 2.1 with GPU Turbo 3.0, and even an app assistant feature to push performance to the max. All of this makes for one of the most capable phones you can get for gaming. This phone can handle any game you can throw at it.

The Kirin 980 is one of the most powerful chips for gaming we have seen. We noted this in our gaming review on the Honor View20. The Honor 20 Pro pushes things even further with the updated Magic UI 2.1 and GPU Turbo 3.0. GPU Turbo 3.0 cuts down on power consumption by up to 10%, optimizes the underlying system to provide a consistent and continuous gaming experience, and works in around 25 games, some of which are listed below.

  • Fortnite
  • Knives Out
  • Battle Bay
  • Crazy Taxi
  • Real Racing 3
  • Into the Dead 2
  • NBA 2K19
  • Dragon Nest M
  • Duel Links
  • PES2019
  • FIFA Mobile
  • Free Fire
  • Minecraft
  • Helix
  • Plants vs. Zombie Heroes
  • Subway Surfers
  • Brawl Stars
  • Speed Drifters

The phone pushed game performance to a nice stable 30 to 60 fps depending on the game. Below are some screenshots from GameBench of the framerates in each game. These are all pretty consistent 60fps, except in a few games that were limited at 30fps. The Honor 20 Pro is also one of the few devices that supports 60fps in Fortnite Mobile. Along with 60fps, Honor 20 Pro owners also get the super cool Fortnite Wonder skin. This is one of the rarest skins in the game.

The new app assistant power button allows you to easily turn on game acceleration. Game acceleration allows for better performance and smoother gaming. This works in most games and lets you enable it automatically. It’s super useful to push the Kirin 980 as far as it can go, getting you the best performance.

Both app assistant and GPU Turbo 3.0 paired with the Kirin 980 really do make the Honor 20 Pro one of the best Honor devices to date. It pumps out the best, the smoothest and the consistent gaming experience of any device. If you want to check out this gaming beast and get the Fortnite Wonder skin while you’re at it, you can buy the Honor 20 Pro once it goes on sale, which is soon. If you want an amazing phone now, the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Lite are available right now.
