Reviews for the Honor Magic5

Honor Magic 5 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English EN→zh-CN
The Honor Magic 5 shows its true colors when you start using this phone. You might think that the phone got a powerful chipset with apt display and camera features, which may even appeal to a wide range of flagship users. but it doesn’t give a proper justification to upgrade from last year’s model. But there’s no denying that the company provides an amazing design with a beautiful camera experience. Still, there are shortcomings like not having wireless charging support, standard charging, lacking protection, and so on. If you are looking for a better deal in the same price range, we recommend you check out the OnePlus 11. With this smartphone, you will obtain better camera features, fast charging, and a more pleasing display experience.

Honor Magic 5, Pro & Prestige | TSW140
Source: Tech Spurt English
The Honor Magic 5, Pro & Prestige are a trio of flagship smartphones likely to launch at MWC 2023 next month. Here's a preview of these fresh phones, including the mighty Honor Magic 5 Prestige with its 1-inch IMX989 camera sensor - its killer feature for taking pin-sharp night photos. The Honor Magic 5 serves up a bigger battery than the Pro and Prestige models, at 5000mAh vs 4800mAh. However, the more expensive phones deliver faster charging, plus wireless charge support. You also get 3D face recognition and proper water resistance, according to the latest leaks. The Honor Magic 5 Prestige, Pro and regular flavour should all be 6.8-inch beasts powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. So expect slick gaming performance. Of course, this may all be a load of cobblers as it's just pre-launch leaks - stay tuned for unboxing and hands-on review videos following MWC 2023 on February 27!
