2018 was all about Notch. We have seen different shapes and sizes of Notches in last year. There were traditional iPhone X style notch and the beautiful dewdrop/waterdrop notch. But somewhere at the end of 2018, we were introduced to display holes by Samsung and Huawei. Honor V20 is the successor of Honor View 10 having a display hole. Hopefully, we get to see more of such display hole designs in 2019. Honor View 20 just launched in India for a price tag of Rs 37,999 and 45,999. Before the Honor View 20 Review with Pros and Cons let us discuss it’s key specifications.

Concluding whether you should buy it or not?
This is the perfect smartphone with everything you need. Enough of the Honor View 20 Review with Pros and Cons but it is a great smartphone. You have the powerful processor which surprised everyone in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and again ready to surprise us. This is especially due to such a perfect optimization from Huawei and JHonor especially considering the GPU Turbo, Link Turbo, NPU, and the thermal management system. Huawei and its sub-brand work so much on AI part that makes it a deal breaker. So considering the Honor View 20 Pros and Cons, you can buy it online via Amazon India. Also, there is Samsung Galaxy A8S and Huawei Nova 4 with similar Display Hole design.
