7am yesterday morning I was standing at Exeter St David’s station in Devon waiting for a train to London Paddington.
My Honor View 20 was at 100% battery and picking up a 4G signal on Three UK. This was going to be a true test of it’s battery life and performance as I was only going to be using cellular signal and data and no WiFi. If you connect the Honor View 20 to WiFi , the battery performance improves by 25% approximately.
The train line to London from Exeter is not the best for obtaining a signal. Other phones I’ve have used on the same line, often struggle for signal. The Honor View 20 seemed to have a signal for the entire train journey of nearly 3 hours. Not only that my dad decided to video call me, and twice. Both times the video call was held perfectly.
Whilst on the train, I used Amazon Prime and watched the latest episode of the Grand Tour using my wireless headphones. I was also getting lots of messages and was replying on and off for the entire journey. After watching the Grand Tour I was listening to Tidal music at master quality using my Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones for the rest of the train ride.
So eventually, I arrived at London Paddington, and I needed to take the Circle Line to South Kensington. Unfortunately, this line was closed at London Paddington due to engineering works, so I fired up Google Maps, and used this to give me turn by turn directions to Fulham Road. This ended up using Google Maps for one hour.
Of course, walking across London, there was no way I couldn’t stop and take loads of photos. So I did. See my previous post for photos I took of London Paddington and at Hyde Park, London. As a side point, the View 20 is a blast to use and it takes great photos without any effort.
During my walk across London, I received several phone calls, and another video call. The video call was on loudspeaker and despite the strong cross wind, I could hear my dad and he could hear me too. Phone calls were also really clear.
When I arrived at my destination, I ended up having to message various people on and off for the next 4 hours.
I then had to walk back to London Paddington station, again using Google Maps and taking a few more photos.
More messaging and emails occurred throughout the day.
On the train back to Exeter St David’s , I watched a film on Netflix. Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. 2 hours and 30 mins.
Remember all the time, I’m on 4G not WiFi.
Eventually, I got back home. A whole day out in London 6 hours screen on time. And still 15% left.
The Honor View 20 and its 4,000mAh battery is a true battery champ.
