Best Honor Phones Android Central 2019

Honor continues to gain ground in the affordable flagship space thanks to the Honor View 20. One of the first phones to offer a hole-punch front camera, the View 20 marries a gorgeous design with a 48MP rear camera and the Kirin 980. In short, it is one of the best affordable flagships around.

48MP goodness: Honor View 20

Staff pick

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 48MP camera at the back, which takes stunning photos. The phone is powered by Huawei's latest Kirin 980 platform, comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and has a 4000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging.

All-rounder: Honor 10

Even though it's getting up in age, the Honor 10 continues to be an excellent mid-range device. The psychedelic gradient effect at the back is one of the best we've seen on a device this year, the phone is powered by the beastly Kirin 970, and the 16MP primary shooter at the back is one of the best in this segment. The Honor 10 also has a secondary 24MP monochrome shooter at the back, as well as a 24MP front camera, and a 3400mAh battery.

Sliders are cool again: Honor Magic 2

Honor's most ambitious device to date has a lot going for it. The Honor Magic 2 has a sliding mechanism where the screen slides down to reveal the three front cameras: a 16MP sensor joined by two 2MP shooters. There are three cameras at the back as well: a 16MP main shooter, 16MP wide-angle lens, and a 24MP monochrome sensor. It's interesting enough that you should pick it up unlocked on Amazon.

For the gamers: Honor Play

The phone is powered by the Kirin 970 and has GPU Turbo enabled, and Honor has tailored custom haptics for titles like PUBG. It features 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage, 16MP + 2MP dual cameras at the back, 16MP front shooter, and a 3750mAh battery.

Great entry-level option: Honor 7A

The Honor 7A is a great choice if you're looking for an entry-level phone. It has a 5.7-inch HD+ display, Snapdragon 430, 2GB/16GB storage, MicroSD slot, 13MP + 2MP dual cameras at the back, 8MP front shooter, and a 3000mAh battery. It doesn't dazzle when it comes to the specs, but at £99 it is a decent alternative to Xiaomi's Redmi 6A.

Honor has a lot of great options across various price points, and the View 20 continues to lead the pack. The combination of top-notch hardware and 48MP camera makes it one of the best affordable flagships right now, and the unique design allows it to stand out.
