Best Honor Phones Android Central 2021

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

Honor 9X

New hotness: Honor 9X

Staff pick

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

Honor 20

Mid-range marvel: Honor 20

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.

Honor View 20

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. Huawei's Kirin 980 platform powers the phone, comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and has a 4,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging.

Honor 10 Lite

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 a 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.

Honor 8X

Entry-level goodness: Honor 8X

The Honor 8X is the brand's latest take on the entry-level market. A Kirin 710 chipset powers the phone, and there's 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. You'll find a 20MP AI camera and depth sensor camera at the back, a 16MP front shooter, and a 3,750mAh battery powering it all. Sure, it's not going to be great for gaming, but it should hold up just fine for everyday tasks.

You'll have to settle for slightly older phones

Honor had a quiet 2020, but the Honor 9X is a standout addition. The combination of top-notch hardware and quad-camera system make it a great affordable flagship, and the unique design with a pop-up selfie camera allows the phone to stand out.

If you're in the market for something more affordable, you can't go wrong with options like the Honor 8X. The phone has a gorgeous design backed by robust hardware that should easily last a few years.

Of course, you don't have to settle for Honor's outdated phones. There are plenty of great Android phones available at all price points, and all the options on this list are more recent than Honor's devices.
