HONOR Magic V2 – The BEST Foldable Phone in the World! (2 Months Later)

Honor Magic V2 hands-on: thin on the outside, packed to the brim on the inside

This is certainly a phone that will attract the attention of anyone that’s into the new foldable tech. It is pretty, it is very thin, it’s packed to the brim with high tech. Oh, did we mention it also supports a (separately-sold) stylus? The UI… may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but the hardware is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, even though that was an “European introduction” of the phone, it did not come with any price-tag or launch date attached. And Honor is being quite mum on the possibility of a launch. But, let’s say we wouldn’t be surprised if we were to see it hit certain EU markets in the next two months. As for the US… we wouldn’t hold our breath.

Honor Magic V2 Two Weeks Later… | Unboxing & Full Review
Source: Tech Spurt English
Reviewing the Honor Magic V2 after two weeks of using this foldable as my full-time phone, including an unboxing, camera test, gaming, battery life and beyond. The Honor Magic V2 is one of the most impressive bendy smartphones of 2023, even against rivals like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Pixel Fold. When it comes to the camera performance, the Honor Magic V2 isn’t as powerful as the Pixel Fold, with Google’s excellent image processing. It’s fine for most everyday shots, but struggles when it comes to the telephoto zoom – while the Samsung Z Fold 5 beats it for video. However, the Honor Magic V2 has them both beat for design. It’s ridiculously skinny and light, with zero gap and a smooth hinge (although it can’t stay open quite as wide when sat on a desk). Likewise, I really liked the external display, which is much easier to use than the Galaxy foldable.

However, even with these caveats in place, the Honor Magic V2 feels important. As if foldables have finally reached a tipping point when it comes to their physical design; its thin, relatively lightweight design means you can now choose a foldable without worrying about it weighing you down too much. The most important barrier that foldables such as this need to hurdle, however, is the price, which until now has remained too high for the mass market to consider. Unfortunately, the Honor Magic V2 isn’t going to change that situation when it hits shelves early next year. It’s still going to be expensive. Frustratingly, Honor isn’t announcing a UK price as yet but we’d expect it to come in between the Galaxy Fold 5 and the Honor Magic Vs. Whether you’ll want to stump up that will depend largely on the usual things – battery life, camera, screen quality and the software – and we won’t know how good it is in this regard until we get our hands on one for full testing later in the year. Watch this space.

Honor Magic V2 hands on: The slimmest foldable on the market

While I didn’t get to put the Honor Magic V2 through its paces to any great degree, there is no doubt that it feels incredible in the hand, and is the first foldable to truly feel like a regular phone in your pocket – bringing everything that’s great about the foldable experience without any of the compromises. If the software experience can live up to the external one, then it will be a foldable that Samsung, and others, should be watching closely.

Hands on: Honor Magic V2 review – the new benchmark for foldable phones?
Source: Techradar English
At first glance, the Honor Magic V2 raises the bar for foldable phones. It’s thinner and lighter than comparatively priced rivals, and borrows enough high-spec features from Honor’s premium candy bar devices to warrant plaudits beyond its impressive form factor.

First Impressions: Honor Magic V2

Though it’s far too early to give a definitive verdict, the Honor Magic V2 could be a very tempting option for foldable fans with a much thinner and lighter design than any other available right now, paired with great displays and a capable camera setup.

Honor Magic V2 hands-on: The best-designed foldable phone yet
Source: Tom’s Guide English
It’s hard to fault the Honor Magic V2 after my hands-on time. A foldable phone that’s slimmer and lighter than its rivals (and some standard phones) is very impressive, and shows Honor’s trying its utmost to provide users a compelling alternative to a Galaxy Z Fold 5 or Google Pixel Fold. If either Samsung or Google offered a foldable built like this, it’d be an instant recommendation. But since this is an Honor phone, there are two big issues to address. One is availability, since it’s no good being a great phone if customers can’t actually buy it. The other is software, as it’s the main reason why previous Honor devices have not quite been able to crash the party for the best phones or best foldable phones around. We’ll be considering both of these when we get a final version of the device to review.

Honor Magic V2 hands-on review: slender fan
Source: Stuff TV English
Honor can be a right old flashy show-off sometimes, but we can get on-board with the foldable concept it aims for the in Honor Magic V2. It wants you to forget it’s even a foldable, at least half the time. Lower weight, a thinner frame and a very normal-shaped and fairly substantial front display means everyday interactions don’t feel they are struggling to get by, compromised. The Honor Magic V2 isn’t a revelation. Instead, it comes across a serious attempt to address the elements that turn prospective foldable phone buyers off. Well, apart from the cost, which is still something of an unknown. We’re betting it’ll undercut a Z Fold 5, though. It doesn’t get all the way there, but it’s good to see someone other than Samsung pushing at the boundaries of this relatively new area of phone tech.

The Honor Magic V2 looks to be a very successful foldable. However, that is only a subjective feeling after a first hands-on at the IFA 2023 in Berlin. The technical specs can largely keep up with the Samsung competition, and even surpass it in many aspects. Of course, the price and the camera quality will be a decisive factor. The battery life should also play a decisive role for the unusually thin foldable. As of now, the very thin and light form factor is impressive, despite being a foldable Android smartphone. I am inclined to award 4.5 stars, since the price will still be too high, as expected. However, we will talk more about this in our detailed review.

Honor Magic V2 Review: Foldable Phone That’s Actually Worth Buying
Source: Igeekphone English
The slim body of 102.7mm and the light weight of 236.4g endow the folding screen mobile phone with the body of a bar machine. Honor Magic V2, Honor’s third folding flagship mobile phone, is more like a cross-generational product. Honor Magic V2 has the thinnest body and the best feel among folding screens of the same size. It can be described in one sentence. It is so light that you can control the shape of a straight-screen phone at will and so thin that you can enter and exit the jeans pocket. With dual 3840Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, dual LTPO adaptive refresh rate, and ultra-high brightness internal and external dual screens, the Honor Magic V2 shows the ultimate charm of internal and external dual screens with a display quality that exceeds the conventional screen.

The Honor Magic V2 also features a triple camera main system and two selfie cameras on each of the two screens. The two screens measures 6.4-inch on the outside and 7.9-inch inside.

Honor Magic V2 hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
We were left with mixed feelings when reviewing the global Magic Vs some time ago, and a lot of what we didn’t quite like was related to its software. We can’t know for sure if the V2 will have addressed those when it launches, nor do we know if it will matter – if the V2 does remain confined to the Chinese market, its faults and merits will largely remain a theoretical concept. But the V2 does improve on several areas we didn’t really consider in dire need of improving. And we like where we’ve gotten. Perhaps the most important development is the weight and thickness reduction which is tangible and most appreciated and indeed makes the large foldable a more appealing handset for a wider range of consumers. The advancements in hinge design and battery technology have brought us here and we’re hoping they make it to more devices from more manufacturers.

Honor:

In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 740: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 730 in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and first benchmarks show that the GPU can beat the Apple A16 iGPU (previously the fastest smartphone GPU). 

Qualcomm Adreno 730: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 30% faster than the Adreno 660 in the Snapdragon 888 SoC. For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in late 2021.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Qualcomm Snapdragon:

SD 8 Gen 2: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2022 with a fast prime core based on a ARM Cortex-X3 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Two more performance cores are based on the A715 and also support only 64 bit applications. The two additional A710 cores support also 32 bit applications as do the power saving Cortex-A510 cores. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 7 modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5x memory with up to 4,200 MHz. 5G is included in the chip with the Snapdragon X70 modem.

SD 8+ Gen 1: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2021 and manufactured in 4 nm at TSMC. Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a ARM Cortex-X2 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Three more performance cores are based on the A710 but clock up to 2.5 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A510 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6e modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5 memory with up to 3,200 MHz. 5G is now included in the chip with the Snapdragon X65 modem. Compared to the non plus version, the 8+ Gen 1 offers a 200 MHz higher clocked Prime Core and a 10% higher clocked GPU. Furthermore, it is now produced at TSMC and not Samsung.
