You’re getting a fast phone with great battery, a lovely design and a good (if a bit dim) screen, it’s making the bare minimum of what a phone should be better, for less money, but the Honor 20 Lite does some things I really dislike, starting with that wretched MicroUSB connector, and then with the...

The Honor 20 Lite is an affordable and well designed phone, bringing good looks with ample performance for the price. If you're looking to grab a SIM-free handset that'll do you proud this is a good option - but there is cheaper competition with similar feature sets out there.

You’re getting a fast phone with great battery, a lovely design and a good (if a bit dim) screen, it’s making the bare minimum of what a phone should be better, for less money, but the Honor 20 Lite does some things I really dislike, starting with that wretched MicroUSB connector, and then with the depth-sensing camera on the back and the stupid resolution camera on the front, it’s a mismatched phone.

The attractive mid-ranger

The Honor 20 Lite is a fairly good performer for the price being asked. There is nothing that bugs me about the phone, everything is okay, except for the fact that the performance could have been a little better. And even inclusion of a faster-charging feature and a type-C port would have given this device a little edge over the others.

It's a well-rounded package and has a great aesthetic sense. You get a sleek and eye-catching design, smooth performance, Android 9 Pie OS, lots of storage and decent battery life. The device is quite similar to the Honor 10 Lite in terms of specifications, excluding cameras. This device mainly faltered in the optics department and the Honor 20i fixes that up to an extent.

The Honor 20i provides an all-round camera experience for the price of Rs. 14,999 and comes with a design that is attractive and a form-factor that is handy. The major area where it lags behind the competition is in terms of rigorous performance and slightly sluggish UI. If you’re solely looking for a camera-oriented option with support for a wide-angle lens, you can pick up the Honor 20i.

The Honor 20 Lite is one of the funkiest-looking phones in its class. It has a classic Honor gradient finish, a very modern front-on appearance. And the triple camera array will make people guess you spent more. A few parts seem half-baked, though. Video features are surprisingly poor, and the continued use of microUSB charging is odd and dated. The real reason to hesitate is one that affects all Honor and Huawei phones right now. Huawei’s dispute with the US government affects Honor phones too, and means we don’t know if it’ll operate properly in the future, or receive updates.

Budget smartphone with good cameras, but competition is fierce

The Honor 20 Lite is competent, if a little underwhelming. Battery life and performance are fair, the cameras do a good enough job, and there's enough internal storage, with the option of a second SIM or external MicroSD storage if required. On the other hand, Micro-USB for charging is something of an anachronism, the screen is LCD rather than OLED, and the speaker distorts when the volume is turned up.
