Which has a better value between the Honor V20 and Honor V10?
In just a year, the Honor View 20 has improved a lot on a design standpoint. It has now able to sport a full-screen display with the camera being punched inside the glass. Flipping the device over and you’ll see a reflective gradient finish instead of a muted color.
The Honor View 10 is said to be upgradeable to Android Pie but the V20 has it already beat out of the box with a newer UI called Magic UI 2.0.
As for the camera, it has also improved a lot with a larger 48MP main lens on the back accompanied by a TOF 3D stereo dual lens similar to the Oppo R17 Pro. The same can be said with the selfie camera bumping it to 25MP.
Honor continues to be generous as the View 20 still includes the ancient audio jack.
You might be missing the in-display fingerprint scanner here but you can still enjoy the quickness of the relocated biometric security feature on the back.
Lastly, the battery clocks in at 4000mAh making it a capable flagship that could last the whole day.
The Honor View 20 officially launched for $430 or Php24,000 (6GB/128GB) with the 8GB/256GB variant costing around Php27,000. Is it a better value than the View 10? Hell, yeah. You can still get the View 10 thru online stores for around Php18,000 should it suit your fancy but we don’t really recommend it.
