HONOR 20i: Design

The HONOR 20i is the most affordable offering in the HONOR 20 series of smartphone. The smartphone takes design cues from the more premium HONOR 20 and the HONOR 20 Pro and offers a gradient back panel. The rear panel houses a triple rear-camera setup with a rear-facing fingerprint sensor. The HONOR 20i one of the most premium-looking smartphones in the sub Rs. 20,000 price tag with a slim design. At the front, the phone has a 6.21-inch IPS display with FHD+ resolution, protected by 2.5D curved tempered glass. The smartphone is great for content consumption, as it offers higher screen to body ratio.

HONOR 20i: Hardware Performance

The HONOR 20i is powered by the time tested HiSilicon Kirin 710 Octa-core chipset with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. There is an option for storage expansion via microSD card. However, one has to sacrifice the secondary SIM slot to do so, as the device has a hybrid SIM tray. As mentioned before, the Kirin 710 is a capable chipset, which can play most of the games without any issue. However, the smartphone might not be the most powerful device in this price range, as there are a lot of smartphones with better chipsets.

HONOR 20i: Camera Performance

With the HONOR 20i, the triple camera setup just became more affordable. The HONOR 20i flaunts a triple rear camera with a 24 MP primary sensor, 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2 MP depth sensor. For selfies, the device has a 32 MP single camera which takes 8 MP images using pixel binning technology. Both camera setups on the HONOR 20i are capable of recording videos 1080p @ 30fps, whereas, most of the competition offers 4K video recording. Thanks to the ultra-wide-angle lens, the phone offers a different viewpoint with a wider viewing angle.

HONOR 20i: Price To Specs Ratio

The HONOR 20i retails in India for Rs. 14,999, which makes it one of the most affordable HONOR smartphones with a triple rear-camera setup. Though the chipset on the HONOR 20i is almost a year old, it might not affect the overall performance of the smartphone. With a full-screen display, triple camera setup, and a 32 MP selfie shooter, the HONOR 20i is definitely a photogenic smartphone. It is definitely not the most powerful smartphone under Rs. 15,000. However, it is still one of the best smartphones, especially for camera enthusiasts.

HONOR 20i: Important Features/Highlights

The HONOR 20i's USP is the triple rear camera with a dedicated ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 32 MP selfie camera. This smartphone claims to offer a lot of camera-centric features, which should reproduce great photos on the main camera and the selfie camera. The smartphone runs on Android 9 Pie OS with custom EMUI skin on top, which makes the HONOR 20i the up-to-date smartphone in this price range. There is a 3400 mAh battery, and the company claims that the battery can last up to an entire day on a single charge.

HONOR 20i: Verdict

The HONOR 20i sits between the affordability and a high-end offering. The company has done some trim down on features like processor and battery, which has helped the brand to price the smartphone under Rs. 15,000. For the asking price, the HONOR 20i is a great device for those, who are looking for a phone that can take selfies in almost every lighting condition.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.


Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.


Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.


The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.


This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
