Reviews for the Honor Magic V

Honor Magic V initial review: An impressive folding phone you won't be able to buy
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Honor Magic V demonstrates that Honor can build a folding phone that appears, at first glance, to rival the offering from the likes of Samsung. However, with limited availability for this device, you're unlikely to be able to buy one unless you're in China.

Hands on: Honor Magic V review
Source: Techradar English
Honor’s foldable Honor Magic V combines cutting-edge performance with a slim profile for a foldable phone. There are a couple of spec compromises when compared to Samsung’s latest Z Fold 3 – there's no dust or water resistance, a 90Hz display versus 120Hz, and no wireless charging – oh, and thus far, it’s only available in China. Nevertheless, in-person, it feels premium and looks slick on first impression.

Honor Magic4 Pro and Magic V hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Despite not having a major camera brand name to work with, Honor has created an impressive camera setup for the Magic4 Pro. The company's work in image processing in particular stands out, but the hardware looks quite capable too. And it looks quite well, arranging all those sensors in an attractive fashion isn't easy. The 6.81" display on the front may be too large for some, but if you are prepared to live with those dimensions, this is one of the most capable OLED panels around. At €1100, the Honor Magic4 Pro is priced to compete with flagships from Apple and the best Android makers. That sets expectations to "high", but Honor has put together a compelling package with no obvious weak spots. Aside from one, perhaps, we need to clear up how many OS updates the phone will receive and for how long it will continue to get security patches. As for the Honor Magic V, it is one of the best foldables we've handled to date. It's priced out of the mainstream market, but well-heeled early adopters will love it.

Honor Magic V Review: 7.9-inch Large Folding Screen, OS Turbo X
Source: Igeekphone English
Overall, Honor Magic V has made it possible for users to “one in place”. From the comfortable 21.3:9 external screen to the multi-level optimization for the large screen, the Magic V makes it easy to use both internal and external dual screens. In addition, the new Snapdragon 8 processor it is equipped with makes it have strong performance, and the carefully polished design makes it full of advanced sensors, while the 50-megapixel rear triple camera, 66W super fast charge, 4750mAh large battery, etc. The top-level configuration makes the overall experience of the phone better, and it is worth buying. Glory, which has been independent for more than a year, can be regarded as a firm foothold in the market after obtaining the third good result in domestic sales. On this basis, consolidating its advantages in the high-end market has become the most urgent task for Honor. After the excellent Magic 3 series in 2021, the Magic V with many cutting-edge technologies is believed to be a brand new weapon for the Honor brand, making the high-end road of Honor go more smoothly.

7.90":

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
