Honor 20e and Huawei P20, performance comparison

Honor 20e and Huawei P20 size comparison. Which to choose?

The size of the body has a big influence on the ease of carrying and one-handed operation. The narrower the width, the easier it is to firmly grasp and hold, but you also have to take into account the device's thickness. Also, if the width and height are smaller, its easier to operate one-handed since its easier to extend your fingers. On the contrary, if the width and height are large, it's difficult to fit in your pocket and is bulky even when put in a bag, and portability is impaired.

The Honor 20e has a width of 2.9inches (73.6mm), a length of 6.1inches (154.8mm), and a thickness of 0.3inches (8mm). Also, the Huawei P20 has a width of 2.8inches (70.8mm), a length of 5.9inches (149.1mm), and a thickness of 0.3inches (7.7mm).

Comparing the width and thickness of the body, the Huawei P20 is smaller and more compact compared to the Honor 20e. For that reason, the Huawei P20 is easier to grip firmly and carry one-handed than the Honor 20e. For that reason, we recommend the Huawei P20.

Comparing the width and thickness of the body, there isn't a large difference in size between the Honor 20e and the Huawei P20. For that reason their one-handed operability, portability, and bulkiness when carried is about the same. That's why I think it's better to compare them in terms of other aspects of performance and functionality.

Comparing the overall size of the two devices, there isn't a big difference in size between the Honor 20e and the Huawei P20. For that reason the ease of carrying and use with one hand is about the same for both. That's why it is better to compare the two in terms of other aspects of performance and functionality.

Honor 20e and Huawei P20, which is more comfortable to hold? Weight comparison

The weight of the device affects hand fatigue and the burden placed upon the wrist. The lighter it is, the longer you'll be able to operate the device without tiring. Also, if the burden placed on the wrist is lower, you'll be able to use the device more comfortably. However if the weight isn't right for you, it could place more of a burden on your body, causing you to feel stress.

The weight of the Honor 20e is about 5.8oz (164g), and the weight of the Huawei P20 is about 5.8oz (165g). Comparing the weight of the two devices, there isn't much difference in weight between the Honor 20e and Huawei P20. That's why the likelihood of fatigue in the fingers and wrists after extended use is about the same for both. That's why it is better to compare the two in terms of other aspects of performance and functionality.
