Honor V20 is about to launch in the European market with a new name Honor View 20. The phone will be targeting the affordable flagship segment of the Old Continent. Though the phone will have a tough competition going in, it will still be believed to have an ample amount of success in Europe.
We have listed two of the most important competitors that might run past Honor View 20 in the continent. First one is Oppo Find X, the first Oppo smartphone to launch in Europe and the next is Google Pixel 3 that has been around for a while now. Which one of the three looks promising on-paper? Let’s find out with this spec comparison.
On the design front, Honor View 20 and Oppo Find X go ahead of Google Pixel 3. Honor View 20 is one of the few devices that has a hole in-display for the selfie camera with minimal bezels possible. Over that, a stunning glass back and incredible light effects on it gives it even more premium feel. On the other hand, we have Oppo Find X consisting a slider design for the first time in a smartphone housing all the cameras. The device has a very high screen to body ratio with no notch, and no holes. Google Pixel 3, is not quite a good looking device but people can consider it for its compact size.
Winner: Honor View 20 and Oppo Find X
The viewing quality has different numbers for all three smartphones and we think that Google Pixel 3 beats both Honor and Oppo devices with the smallest 5.5-inches display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The panel offers a good color reproduction courtesy HDR 10 technology and 100% DCI-P3 coverage. The front has stereo speakers and if combined with higher pixel density, the multimedia experience reaches a new height. We will give second place to Oppo X for its AMOLED panel and the third place goes to the midrange IPS display of Honor View 20.
Winner: Google Pixel 3
Honor View 20 wins the hardware front among three, thanks to the Kirin 980 chipset that gives plenty of smoothness and blazing speed. The phone has 8 GB of RAM and 256GB of internal space with custom UI for fast processing. However, Google Pixel 3 also has the advantage of having a stock Android that supports faster updates even with lower-end hardware. Oppo Find X lacks behind both the smartphones in terms of hardware as well as software.
Winner: Honor View 20
Google Pixel 3 was declared as the best camera smartphone of 2018. Even though Honor View 20 is a 2019 device and even though Google Pixel 3 has a single sensor on the back, we still believe it will beat the two other devices in photo quality.
In terms of numbers, Honor View 20 has the 48MP shooter at the back, which is enough to declare it a winner but we cannot deny the perfect optical stabilization and great autofocus Google Pixel 3 delivers in the front cam.
Oppo Find X falls behind in this department too. We have seen the 16MP+20MP combination on the Oppo smartphone before too and it hardly matches the single sensor of Google. And given the results from Honor V20 shots, we have noticed noise in the low light captures and believe that Google Pixel 3 is still a fine device in terms of camera.
Winner: Google Pixel 3
Battery and Price
Honor View 20 gets juice from a 4000 mAh battery which is a rare sight in flagship devices. It can easily last for two days and therefore, wins the battery battle.
In the second place, we have Oppo Find X with a slightly low battery but a very fast charging technology. Google Pixel 3 falls at the third place with just an average level battery.
Considering the price bar the three devices belong too, we think that Honor View 20 has a much higher value for money at just €600/$682.
Google Pixel 3 is also a decent smartphone to keep with added features like better camera faster updates, water resistance, but it fails to justify its price at €850/$966. Also, according to street talks, Oppo Find X also has a similar price as of Honor View 20 but a better camera and bigger battery make Honor View 20 a well deserving winner in this trio.
