- Page 9: Wrapping up the HONOR View20 review
Then comes the design of the HONOR View20. It once again reminds me the curved design like the Xiaomi Mi A2 and the recently-launched HONOR 10 Lite – because the back is curved towards the screen at the two long edges – making it much more comfortable to hold.
That curvature is also what makes the HONOR View20 feel thinner than it already is – and that is a good thing because there are some serious hardware packed into the HONOR View20.
During the announcement of the HONOR View20, we get to know that there will be a total of 4 colors – the Midnight Black or Sapphire Blue, and then there are two more Moschino Edition color options. The one we have with us is the basic blue color which does not seem to be basic at all, because looking at other angles results in this.
Depends on how the light is shined onto the HONOR View20, the blue appears differently. It can appear purple as well, which goes to show how much thought HONOR has put into creating the View20.
As for the purple color, here is how I saw it through the camera.
HONOR says that they are using nanolithography fabrication process to create the aurora effect that is seen at the back of the phone. The pattern that reflects the aurora colors is aptly shaped like a “V”, because this is the HONOR View20 after all. And it has an alternative name known as the HONOR V20 too.
The included transparent TPU case is actually pretty decent, and the aurora back shines through the transparent TPU case too – so we do not have to worry about its beauty being compromised.
Then comes the front of the phone – which is nearly all-screen.
