Honor Magic2 One of the best android phone around, with a friendly pricetag and a beautiful design!

Honor is the sub-brand of Huawei, it’s popular from it’s beautiful phones with amazing value. Their new flagship phone is the Magic2 which is awesome in every aspect, even if we are talking about battery or design. And it doesn’t have a notch like the Mate 20 Pro!

Design/Display

The Magic two is basically just screen on the front. It has a “Magic FullView Display” with a size of 6,39.inch, a near 100%screen to body ratio, 403 ppi resolution which is more than enough and of course it’s an AMOLED panel. On the back of the phone there is a triple camre system, and “AI VISION” sign. It comes in 4 colours, black/grey/pink/blue.

Hardware

Honor Magic2 has the newest 7nm Kirin 980 (same as the Mate 20 pro), with 6/8 GB of RAM. Storage can be 128 or 256GB, first one comes with 6GB RAM only. Performance is in near to the top within android phones, so there couldn’t be any complaint. It has a 3D face unlock system, which is fast, but i still prefer fingerprint sensors what is now under the display. Sadly no IP rating.On battery front it boosts a 3500mAh battery, it’s not so big but the 7nm processor uses much less than others. It supports 40W!!! SuperCharge, which means 50% in 15 minutes, and 85% in 30 minutes.

Camera

Honors new flagship has a triple camera system, which also has an AI function and can detect 60 object categories and hundreds of scenarios in real time (crazy fast, thanks to the new chipset).

  • 24MP Monochrome f/1.8
  • 16MP RGB f/1.8, PDAF
  • 16MP Ultra-Wide angle f/2.2

There is no optical image stabilisation, whereas there is AI Stabilisation, which works well on the Mate 20Pro. Moreover it laks 4K@60fps, don’t know why, the chipset supports it. (Mate 20Pro doesn’t have either). The selfie camera is 16MP AI camera, with 3D intelligent deep lens for portrait mode.

Conclusion

Honor Magic2 is a great phone in a lot of aspect, we like the way they solved the selfie camera (better than notches), the camera system has serious capabilities, and the fast charging system is, well, it’s just crazy fast. Even if it laks waterproofing and 4K@60 fps, it is one of the best android phones with a price tag around 550EUR. So performance is top-notch, cameras are great, keep on HONOR!
