There’s a similarly small difference when it comes to the battery. While the Honor 20 features a 3,750mAh battery, the Honor 20 Pro goes with a slightly larger 4,000mAh cell. Both phones support Honor’s 22.5W SuperCharge fast charging standard, which charges from zero to 50 percent in 30 minutes.

Honor 20 Pro rear cameras

The biggest difference between the two phones is with their quad-camera setups. The Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro share identical super wide-angle and macro sensors. However, the Honor 20 Pro’s 48MP primary camera has a wider aperture (f/1.4) than the Honor 20’s 48MP camera (f/1.8). More significant is the third sensor. The Honor 20 features a 2MP depth sensor, while the Honor 20 Pro features an 8MP telephoto sensor.

Even with the differences, the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro seem like a solid pair of “affordable flagships” that are compelling, cheaper alternatives to the Samsung Galaxy S10, Huawei P30 Pro, and OnePlus 7 Pro.
