The HONOR Magic5 Pro is certainly the alternative option for flagship devices given the strong hardware capabilities. After finishing reviewing the Magic5 Pro, min had a chance to swap the HONOR Magic5 Pro as my day-to-day smartphone, and here are my thoughts about it after using it for 3 weeks.
First, let's talk about the overall experience of living with the HONOR Magic5 Pro. Judging by the design, huge display, and massive camera bump, the Magic5 Pro gives off the feel of "chonky boy" when it comes to holding up the device. I wouldn’t say the Magic5 Pro was heavy, but more like a “big brother” flagship that can handle everything you throw at it.
Just Perfect for Video Streaming
Besides that, the 6.81-inch Quad-Curved Floating Screen takes up almost the entire front panel of the device, delivering the most impactful viewing experience while gaming and also watching my favourite YouTube channels.
One of the Best Mobile Photography Experiences
I'm very satisfied with the HONOR Magic5 Pro's mobile photography experience. There are no bad-quality shots taken by the smartphone thanks to the powerful triple 50MP Camera setup, whether you shoot pictures during the day or at night.
Pictures taken at night do not lose out of their details, and colors, and remain sharp as always. Plus, the image processing time only takes about less than a sec, meaning that I don't have to wait in between every snap in the night.
Totally Reliable Performance
The HONOR Magic5 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which is a powerful processor that should offer smooth performance for multitasking and demanding applications. >HONOR Magic5 Pro AnTuTu Benchmark Score here<
I normally run Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail on the HONOR Magic5 Pro whenever I felt lazy to sit in front of the PC. Generally, I don’t face any major performance issues aside from the stuttering after the game loads in. Hence, the game is definitely playable on high settings and 60 fps.
The same goes for the Honkai: Star Rail on high graphical settings and 60 fps, there’s no lagging and overheating issue occurring while gaming for more than an hour. However, the battery drains pretty fast for running this game from 81% to 56% (25% gone).
Unlimited Battery Sustainability
Additionally, the sustainability of the HONOR Magic5 Pro is superb. The 5100mAh battery with 66W SuperCharge support ensures long-lasting battery life, which is always a plus for heavy smartphone users.
The Magic5 Pro manages to survive the day from 81% in the morning (11 AM) with 56% battery left at (730 PM) including a 1-hour gaming session in between. For instance, if you don’t really use your device frequently during working hours like me, it will be enough to stand by for 2 days. Even when you running out of battery, the 66W SuperCharge is able to juice up the device from 52 % to 100% in just 31 minutes.
Overall, I felt that the HONOR Magic5 Pro is an essential flagship to own. Given how well the Magic5 Pro performs in every aspect, it surely makes your life easier, especially in this information age.
Based on its specifications, the HONOR Magic5 Pro should offer an excellent user experience for those looking for a flagship with a large display, powerful chipset, the best camera system, and long battery life for only RM4,299.
