Affordable Flagship Camera Stand-off: OnePlus 6T/6 vs Honor View20

Affordable flagships have been a hit in the last couple of years. While the space was dictated by OnePlus until last year, brands like Huawei’s Honor and Xiaomi have been upping the game and offering stiff competition. Honor’s newest release – the Honor View20 – comes out as a firm competitor for the OnePlus 6T/6. While the Honor View20 has a newer Kirin 980 processor, its major highlights include the 48-megapixel primary sensor, which is really intriguing and has set high expectations, and the punch-hole selfie camera in the front. Daniel, for XDA TV, took the latest phones from Honor and OnePlus for a detailed camera comparison, and if you’ve been wondering which brand does better, you can find out in the video below.
