Bright and dustproof

Honor 20 is available in two colors. "sapphire blue" and restrained "midnight black". We had the first option on the test. Bright, youthful, with a gradient. everything is like a brand loves.

Outwardly, the novelty pleases the eye. Frameless edges, a fairly large screen with a diagonal of 6.26 inches, a miniature front-dot-point with a diameter of 4.5 mm.

We turn the smartphone over. and we see a brilliant case made of glass and metal, which, unfortunately, is not dustproof. There are almost no fingerprints left on the back, but a bulging camera still forces you to put on a cover to protect it from scratches.

A fingerprint scanner is neatly located on the side, which bloggers look at with interest, comparing the location with Samsung and Sony. Let’s just say that now scanning your fingers will be convenient for both left-handed people and right-handed people. The scanner recognizes the fingerprint instantly. however, as does face recognition. Everything is clear here.

It turned out that the real battles for the title of a cool smartphone are held at the level of the power of their cameras. At presentations, manufacturers are measured by the technical characteristics of the cameras, comparing the photos of the moon at 2-, 10-, 30-fold magnification. Therefore, the theme of photographic capabilities of smartphones fills the leading part in modern reviews.

The Honor 20 has four rear cameras and one front camera. Of particular interest is the main module, which by resolution overtook the flagship Huawei P30 Pro.

It turns out that in Honor 20 there are four modules: the main camera (48 megapixels and f 1.8), super wide-angle (16 megapixels with aperture 2.2), similar "fish eye", a macro camera (2 megapixels and f 2.4) and a depth sensor, which is an auxiliary technical element for creating beautiful bokeh, for example, in portrait shooting.

In good light, the Honor 20 shoots beautifully. Photos are detailed, but sometimes sinful in acid colors. I would like to take saturation to minus. Perhaps such an effect "tells" artificial intelligence, which is also in the photo mode. Disabling the AI ​​helped get rid of the overshot images, but the problem was not completely resolved. If a bright detail gets into the frame, then in sunlight it becomes caustic. This is a well-known and not everyone’s favorite feature of Honor cameras.
