Best Honor Phones Android Central 2020

Huawei's ongoing trade ban has affected its Honor sub-brand as well, with the manufacturer launching fewer devices than usual last year. That said, we got to see a few standout phones in the likes of the Honor 20 and the Honor 9X. These are the best Honor phones you can buy right now.

Mid-range marvel: Honor 20

Staff pick

The Honor 20 has all the hallmarks of a great affordable flagship: it has an evocative design with a hole-punch cutout, powerful hardware in the form of a Kirin 980 chipset, and four cameras at the back with a 48-megapixel primary lens. There's also a 32-megapixel front camera, and a 3,750mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging.

New hotness: Honor 9X

With the Honor 9X, the brand is offering a retractable module that hides the front camera, leading to a bezel-free screen. It is powered by the mid-range Kirin 710F chipset, has a 48-megapixel camera at the back, and the 4,000mAh battery should last two days between charges. Oh, and the design at the back is stunning.

A new view: Honor View 20

The View 20 features a unique V-shaped Color Edge design at the back that makes it stand out in this segment. But the main attraction is the 48-megapixel camera at the back, which takes stunning photos. The phone is powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 platform, comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and has a 4,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging.

Budget warrior: Honor 10 Lite

Honor knows how to make a great budget phone, and the Honor 10 Lite is no different. The phone has the same design that made the Honor 10 stand out, and you get a 6.21-inch FHD display with a Kirin 710 chipset and 3,400mAh battery. There really isn't anything missing here, and when you factor in the cost, the Honor 10 Lite becomes a great option.

Entry-level goodness: Honor 8S

The Honor 8S is the brand's take on the entry-level market. The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset, and there's 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There's also a 13-megapixel camera at the back, a 5-megapixel front shooter, and a 3,020mAh battery. Sure, it's not going to be great for gaming, but for everyday tasks it should hold up just fine.
