How does the Honor 20 Pro’s battery perform on a typical day? [VIDEO]

Battery performance is one of those things that’s really hard to gauge. It can vary wildly from person to person depending on how the phone is used. Even “scientific” battery tests don’t tell the whole story. That’s why XDA TV‘s Adam Conway decided to put the Honor 20 Pro to the test in a typical day-to-day fashion. How does it hold up?

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.

At the end of the day (around midnight), Adam was still rocking 25% battery remaining. His screen-on time was a little over five hours. Adam came away pretty impressed with the battery life, considering he is a power user. His one complaint is the lack of Super Fast charging for a quick top-up, but charging time is still good. How do you think the Honor 20 Pro performed?
