The camera on the Honor View 20 is very impressive, and for a week or so I’ve been out and about taking some photos to show off the camera. Unfortunately the weather has not been nice to me, but you can get a good feel for the 48-megapixel Sony-made camera,… [Click for more]

Honor Play Photo Gallery: A selection of photos and videos from the new Honor gaming phone

Quite understandably all the attention directed towards the new Honor Play is around its gaming prowess, but not many people would want a great device for playing games that isn’t also able to take good pictures.
