- Page 9: Wrapping up the HONOR View20 review
Shifting around our review structure a little, let us talk about the display of the HONOR View20. This is the first ever smartphone from HONOR to be featuring a punch hole display or an under-screen selfie camera or a circular notch – however you want to call it.
The HONOR View20 has a 6.4-inch IPS LCD display with 2310×1080 pixels in resolution. It has great colors and also great white balance – though it is a tad to the colder side than what I’ve gotten used to.
Of course, there is a circular cutout at the top left corner too. HONOR actually moved that cutout so far off to the corner that I honestly forgot that it exists when I use it. It is just tiny and can be ignored easily.
If you really don’t like the notch – even though it does not bother your day-to-day usages – then you can actually disable the notch in the settings menu. You will, however, create a bar of nothingness at the top of the screen.
Because of the nature of how capacitive touch screen works, you can actually touch the circular cutout notch and drag the notifications bar down – which is impressive since that space is not actually wasted. Furthermore, if we are to look at it, the cutout itself is the entire selfie camera.
HONOR also included a film screen protector pre-installed on the HONOR View20 itself – so that you do not have to worry about scratching up the display at all.
With the front of the phone taken up by the display, where did all the sensors go?
