Verdict

The Honor 20 Pro does sound like a great proposition for what it's offering at its price, which includes a quad-camera setup. The array of lenses include a telephoto lens, ultrawide lens, and a macro lens The OnePlus 7 Pro is priced higher but it does have a better display than the others. The Reno offers 10X hybrid zoom and the Asus 6Z has a flip-camera which in theory will let you to take some of the most high-quality selfies. Each phone has its own quirks and advantages, but one thing that will affect the Honor 20 Pro is the lack of Android updates after the 90-day window provided by the US shuts down.  We will know for sure in the coming days and also when we review the device in detail so stay tuned for that.
