Review: Why the HONOR 20e and Honor Watch ES are a steal

It’s a myth that you now have to pay hundreds of pounds to get a decent smart-phone these days. We’ve heard so many people say things like “smart phones are the new laptop” and “you have to pay five hundred or more for something decent”, but Honor is a brand which completely goes against the grain.

Take the HONOR 20e mobile phone which right now, costs just £149.99 (and features in Honor’s Black Friday deals – see below).

For under one hundred and fifty pounds, this stunning looking gadget will blow your mind. Let’s take a look at some of the main features:

Triple Lens camera

To get a triple lens camera for this price is incredible. A triple lens camera will completely revolutionise your photo-taking, and you will be stunned by the quality of the images. Try the Aperture effects and you’ll soon be taking pictures like a pro.

GPU Turbo Gaming

More of us then ever are using our devices to play games and the Honor 20e boasts technology that makes your games look phenomeonal.


The display is fantastic. The specs read like this:

6.21 inches;LTPS;16.7M;2340 x 1080;Touch-sensitive screen. Support multi-touch technology

What that actually means is, there’s a razor sharp picture that is bright and clear, which makes browsing the net an excellent experience. It also means that if you’re streaming tv shows or videos, the quality is not going to let you down.

What else does it do?

Impressively, this model includes a Fingerprint function, which you’d probably only expect to see on a more expensive model. You’ll soon realise the significance of this as it makes things so much easier. If, like us, you use a banking app or shop on your phone, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about here.

As you’d expect, apps are all managed through the Android system which is so easy to use, and things like making calls and browsing are slick and easy to use.

You’ll also find if you listen to music or stream tv shows, the sound on this thing is top notch.

When we tested the phone, we were super impressed by the battery life, which really helps the Honor 20e punch above its weight.

How do Honor phones compare to things like Samsung and iPhone?

Trust us, we’re not paid to say this, but we cannot fault Honor products. They offer incredible value and you will not be disappointed in the look, feel, or quality of this phone. Honor is one of those brands that continues to innovate and offers high quality products for a frankly unbelievably low price.
