The first thing you’ll notice about the phone is that it’s so damn blue! That is, if you get the blue variant, which is the one we got.
To be honest, my first impressions of the general aesthetic of the phone wasn’t positive. The company raved about the process it put into designing the back of the phone and it seemed like a lot of work.
I used the phone on a more regular basis, I started to really notice that 2-stage 3D Mesh technique they were raving about. The back of the phone looks brilliant in the sunlight and is a real eye-catcher. Of course, it collects the odd fingerprint here and there, but I’m starting to give up on smartphone manufacturers when it comes to this department. If you can’t beat em’, join em’, right?
Moving over to the front of the phone, the punch hole camera that started with their View 20 series has made its way to the HONOR 20 and it’s even better this time around, as the company claims it’s the smallest punch hole camera on the market right now. Personally, I don’t like the front-facing camera being off centre, but that’s really a personal preference thing. In terms of how intrusive it is, it’s really not so bad.
One thing you’ll either love or hate about the HONOR 20 is that the power button also functions as the fingerprint scanner. I thought it was pretty cool when I first received the phone as it is rather different from other phones out there. The scanner even works like a charm, very quickly unlocking the device at the slightest touch of my thumb. But that also turned out to be pretty annoying. I tend to place my thumb in the general area of the power button when I'm holding the phone and it tends to unlock even when I don’t want it to unlock! It’s rather annoying but perhaps it’s just me.
