Since Huawei noted its fresh flagship SoC Kirin 980 for the second half of 2018, it already introduced 3 budget flagships phones with the fresh 7 nm chipset inside. In this article, we compared them in order to establish what is really the suitable smartphone to buy and what one is pretty value the money asked.

Huawei Mate 20 has an anonymous and not so bright design compared to other flagships. But it has the best build quality: its panel is protected by Gorilla Glass and the smartphone is dust resistant and splash resistant with the IP53 certification. Honor Magic 2 is a Really innovative slider cameraphone what ships with a screen-to-frame ratio close to 100 percent without needing a notch and with front cameras and sensors embedded in a slide that users could manually open. Honor V20 is the one I appreciate due to the fact of its in-display camera allowing a high screen-to-body ratio without having sliders and notches, as well as its glass back with awesome light effects what changes its colors depending from the angle from what you Check at it.


Even though Honor V20 is equipped with a midrange-class IPS screen, Honor Magic 2 and Huawei Mate 20 suggests something extra. The former has the AMOLED technology, an in-screen fingerprint reader and 100 percent DCI-P3 coverage, while the latter comes with DCI-P3 and HDR tech for well known colour reproduction, but it has a waterdrop notch.

We obtained an high quality hardware side on each of individuals devices and their performances are additional or fewer equivalent. They have the fresh Kirin 980 SoC, a chipset that is considered excellent to Qualcomm’s Sd 845, and they arrive with up to 8 GB of RAM (except Huawei Mate 20 promoting up to 6 GB RAM). Honor V20 and Huawei Mate 20 feature an expandable memory, however only Honor V20 has a dedicated micro SD slot to use it without renouncing to the dual SIM capability. All of them arrive with Android Pie out of the box customized by EMUI 9.

Image Sensor

We still had no possibility to try it as it is not on sale still, however Huawei Honor V20 offers the perfect rear digital camera department on the paper. It is made up of the fresh 48 MP digital camera by Sony paired with a secondary 3D stereo sensor able to capture depth info. Honor Magic 2 offers the most interesting front option with a triple front sensor which include 2 depth sensors. Huawei Mate 20 is an quality sensor smartphone as well and it is the lonely smartphone with an ultra-wide lens in its triple camera.


With Honor V20 and Huawei Mate 20 getting similar the exact same battery ability (4000 mAh), the software optimization will surely make the change. Usually, Mate products are optimized much better than Honor phones, but we can not say the same for those products until we test Honor V20.
