Created date: 09/30/2018, 22:45:46, Updated date: 04/16/2020, 22:11:51

We've conducted a detailed review of the Honor Magic, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Honor Magic

Honor Magic's size

The Honor Magic is 2.8inches (69.9mm) wide, 5.8inches (146.1mm) tall, and 0.31inches (7.8mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the Honor Magic, it weighs about 5.1oz (145g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Honor Magic, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Honor Magic's screen

The Honor Magic has a 5.09 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the Honor Magic is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of Honor Magic

The Honor Magic has an extremely high processing power of 2.3GHz+1.8GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Honor Magic has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Honor Magic has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Honor Magic's storage capacity

The Honor Magic has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

The Honor Magic is not compatible with SD cards, so make sure you check that there's enough storage for your needs.

The camera function of Honor Magic

The main camera of the Honor Magic has a capacity of 12 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The Honor Magic comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Honor Magic

The Honor Magic has a relatively large battery with 2900mAh. The Honor Magic has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of Honor Magic

The Honor Magic is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
