Honor 20 Pro official images appear

We know that the new Honor 20 Series is coming on May 21st, but – rather interestingly – they’ve decided to let us take a look at the phone ahead of the actual launch. The official image is above. That’s a bit weird, sure, but if you notice …

EMUI 9.1 coming to stacks of older Honor and Huawei kit

Based on Android Pie, EMUI 9.1 is the latest iteration of the Huawei / Honor skin. The newest version brings the incoming call videos we mentioned just the other day, plus improvements to GPU Turbo mode, voice assistants triggering via the power button and much more. The latest …

New HONOR 20 Series incoming

The naming convention is getting me a little confused this early on a Monday morning. We’ve already had the excellent Honor View20, which I reviewed here and loved. Now, though, it looks like there’ll be more “20 Series” phones coming soon. Honor have put out this launch notification …

Honor UK changes to Honour UK?

How long have we mentioned this eh? I suggested it to the Huawei bosses when I was in China and we asked them again on our podcast… Joking aside – that was a question we asked when we interviewed them for the CSP podcast. — John M (@GreyingGeekJohn) …

Enjoy the full experience of Fortnite

If you’re a Fortnite fan, then you’ll probably be aware of a few things. First, the buzz around this game just doesn’t seem to fade. It’s still as popular as it always was and now, with the addition of Android and iPhone versions plus cross-platform multi-player, it’s taken …

Has your Fortnite Honor Guard gone? Don’t worry, here’s what to do

So, Honor is giving out a free Fortnight Fortnite outfit for those buying the View20. All good. Nice addition and it’s exclusive to Honor View20 customers, if you’re wearing the outfit in the game, it really makes you stand out. However, it would appear that the Honor Guard …

Honor 8A announced. Octa-core CPU, 6″ HD+ screen – only £139.99

Arriving on the Honor website very soon is this, the Honor 8A. It’s billed as “an affordable smartphone with superior sound quality and a 6.09″ Dewdrop FullView Display”. First let’s look at the “superior sound quality” claim. This is because the speakers are actually combined with a dual-suspension …

Honor View20 – Stellar battery life

I mentioned how good the Honor View20 battery life was in my recent review but, as some of you may have seen on Twitter last night, I’m constantly surprised by just how long it does last. It’s like the Energizer bunny. In years past, Huawei / Honor were …

Honor View20 – Desktop Mode Demo

If you’re a regular, you may well remember the Huawei Desktop Mode Feature we did. This was a close look at the rather cool feature on the Mate 10 which gave you a desktop output through the USB-C connector. You need a little box to make this work …

Honor View20 – Review

I’ll be honest, Huawei and Honor seem to be cranking up the handset launches to a rate where I’m losing track slightly. Honor, let’s not forget, is a sub-brand of Huawei. You get the same quality, the same Huawei processor and the same user interface, albeit with a …

Honor View20 Announced. Spot the difference?

We’re here live in Paris and, just now, the Honor View20 has been announced. Known also as the V20 (you’ll see the letter “V” on the back too, it’s got a few things going for it. For a start, there’s a selfie camera, but it’s actually in the screen. It …

Live from Paris. See The Unseen with Honor.

Well, the lid kinda got blown off this one already, but no matter – we’re here in Paris to see the hot new flagship from Honor for real. As is usual, we’ll be bringing you live coverage via our Twitter account, which we’ve handily embedded here for you. …

Keep it locked. Complete Honor View20 coverage. Live.

Later today we’ll be at a phone launch. Nothing really different about that, it’s something we’ve done for years. However, this is the launch event for the Honor View20, and this phone has a bit of a cool trick up it’s sleeve. Actually, I should tell you that …

The Honor View20 – Look closely. Notice something?

Creating a phone that looks a bit “different” is definitely in the interests of most phone manufacturers, however if you do there’s the risk that the phone isn’t going to be as popular. So, there’s smaller but rather cool tweaks happening to new phones now, and although they’re …

Launched – The HonorMagic2 and Honor Watch

Remember the Honor Magic from 2016? We loved the thing and stumbled across it in Barcelona. It had a stand-out design which made it so much different to all the other slab-style phones that are available on the market. Trouble was, unless you imported it, you couldn’t really …

Honor Play – Review

What is it with all the mobile phone manufacturers thinking that we need a gaming smartphone these days? I am not the biggest gamer in the world I occasionally like a game of Angry Birds as much as the next person but I can’t see myself settling in …

Honor 8X Review

I’ve had this phone for a while now, and I’ve released day-by-day video updates which will form the main part of this review. So, in the place of what you’d normally expect to find here, I’d first like to discuss the state of the smartphone landscape right now …

A week with the Honor 8X. Day 3 – Strava and battery life!

I’ve performed a couple of tests today with the Honor 8X. The first is to check Strava. It’s an app I use a lot to track my exercise and, as you might know, I’ve had some issues with it working properly on Honor / Huawei kit. From what …
