Reviews for the Honor Magic V2 RSR

89.1% Porsche Design Review| Honor Magic V2 RSR - Stylish foldable with a sporty touch | Notebookcheck
Porsche's German product design team is working with Honor to launch the company's first smartphone. Technically, it is nearly identical to the Magic V2, but it differs mainly in terms of material, design, included accessories, and price.
86% Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR Review – Luxurious foldable with sleek Porsche aesthetics tested

The Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR elevates the exceptional design of the Magic V2 to new heights while retaining its slim dimensions and superb performance with the inclusion of a more premium backplate, a slew of accessories as well as a useful stylus. While it does not come cheap, it’s nonetheless a luxuriously sophisticated status item for a discerning clientele. The elusively rare Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR is a gorgeous status item, offering improved storage over the base model, a more premium chassis and a bundled stylus to take full advantage of the strengths of the base Magic V2 foldable design though it costs a pretty penny.

86% Honor Magic V2 and V2 RSR Porsche Design review
Source: GSM Arena English
The Honor Magic V2's has got a great display on the cover and a large bendy one inside, and makes proper good use of both. Its cameras aren't exactly cutting-edge, but where they fall short, they don't do so in a dealbreaking manner. And we were actually quite pleased by the main and the ultrawide units on the back, for stills in particular. Battery life is bested by some key competitors, and there's no wireless charging capability, but the charging speed sort of makes up for that. The lack of an IP rating isn't great, we'll admit, and the lack of Android 14 upgrade doesn't bode well for the Magic's long-term software future. Overall, the Honor Magic V2 is probably not the best value in its class. But its main claim to fame is its slim waistline, and if you want the benefits of a large foldable in as close as possible to a bar form factor, this one is shaping up as a top choice.

Porsche Design HONOR Magic V2 RSR Review: The Ultimate Foldable
Source: Android Headlines English
I absolutely love this phone. Is it perfect? Of course not. However, a lot of my complaints in this review of the Magic V2 RSR, I think I can overlook and use this as one of my daily drivers. I really like foldables, but some are just so far behind what HONOR and some of the other Far East companies have been able to do in such a short time. I mean, the Magic V2 RSR is just 2 grams heavier than the Galaxy S24 Ultra, which is incredible. On top of that, HONOR has included 1TB of storage here, making it a monster for taking photos and creating content. The only thing that’s going to be hard to look past is carrier compatibility here in the US. I’ve been using it on Google Fi for the past week or so, and so far, there have been no real issues with T-Mobile. But, if I go somewhere that doesn’t have the same LTE bands, this phone is going to basically become a paperweight. So, unfortunately, I can’t recommend it to Americans. But for those in Europe, it’s a really good option, especially if you’re a Porsche fan.

Honor Magic V2 RSR Porsche Design Review: the most stylish foldable money can buy
Source: Phandroid English
While the Honor Magic V2 RSR Porsche Design boasts a luxurious design, cutting-edge display, and powerful specs, its staggering price tag of 2700 euro raises significant questions for value-conscious buyers. This hefty cost puts it in a different league compared to the OnePlus Open, which offers similar flagship-level features at a significantly lower price point. For me, the main issue comes down to the software experience. That could all change in the coming months as Honor pushed out Magic OS 8.0 to this and other devices in its lineup, but I honestly wasn’t that impressed with the new build that I tested on the global variant of the Honor Magic 6 Pro. Therefore, unless you specifically value the Porsche Design branding, unique foldable form factor, and are comfortable with the high price tag, the Honor Magic V2 RSR Porsche Design might not be the most practical choice.

Honor Magic V2 Porsche Design Review: Skin Deep
Source: MrMobile English
No, I don’t mean the car phone from the 80s – I’m talking about the product of the same collaborations that gave us the BMW Motorola Timeport of the 1990s; the Pininfarina Nextel i833 of the mid-oughts; and the Porsche Design BlackBerry and Huawei phones from the 20-teens! Truth be told, I found those earlier efforts mostly forgettable – because the phones they focused on were already standouts in design and capability, from brands well-established in their respective spaces. But Honor is another story entirely: a company that’s been trying to make a splash since 2016, but which has been held back by circumstances both within and beyond its control. So as Honor begins offering its groundbreaking super-slim Honor Magic V2 foldable to European buyers, teaming up with German design legend Porsche Design makes all the sense on the continent. (It’s just a shame all its design wins are only skin-deep.)

Honor Magic V2 RSR Porsche Design Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Honor Magic V2 RSR is a gorgeous phone that’s a delight to live with. I haven’t always been the biggest fan of foldable designs, often feeling that the compromises outweigh the benefits, but I didn’t feel that here. It’s slim, lightweight, has two brilliant displays and takes great photos. Of course, the delayed launch means that some hardware is slightly outdated, but I didn’t feel that at all in use. It games well, multitasks like a champ and just feels snappy and responsive in general. All of this is true with the standard V2, but what this model offers is a lovely design, some very high-quality accessories, and a massive 1TB of storage. The big question mark is the price. Honor will be announcing the European pricing at its MWC keynote, and with the standard version already retailing for £1,699, it’s guaranteed to cost you a pretty penny. Those seeking value will certainly be better off with the regular Magic V2, but that’s not what the Porsche brand signifies.

Porsche Design Magic V2 Review: Still The Thinnest & Lightest Foldable
Source: ben's gadget reviews English
Honor Magic V2 RSR is the global premium version of the Honor Magic V2 I first covered six months ago. At the time, it was by far the lightest and thinnest foldable. Now, six months later, the gap has closed a bit, but it's still leading the pack. The Honor Magic V2 RSR brings a 6.4-inch outside screen, 7.9-inch main folding screen, with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and a 5,000 mAh battery. There's also stylus support for both screens.

Hands-on with the Porsche Design HONOR Magic V2 RSR Edition
Source: Pocketnow English
Suppose you’re after a foldable that can deliver the best that HONOR has been able to achieve and equip on a modern, premium, and one-of-a-kind foldable smartphone. In that case, the Porsche Design HONOR Magic V2 RSR is worth considering. Unfortunately, the company has still not released the official price, making it a little hard to recommend for the average user, but given the provided accessories and extra attention to detail, it likely won’t come cheap. For those looking for an equally good experience, the standard HONOR Magic V2 will likely be a better and more affordable foldable. At the same time, the Porsche Design edition will remain an exclusive for those looking for something truly exceptional.

80% Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR review: The ultra-thin foldable gets turbocharged
Source: Android Central English
Honor hasn't shared what the Magic V2 RSR will be available for — that information is set to be revealed at Mobile World Congress. That said, the phone retails for 15,999 RMB in China, or the equivalent of $2,225. Considering the standard version of the Magic V2 costs €1,999 ($2,132) in global markets, it's safe to assume that the V2 RSR will be closer to €2,299 ($2,475) once it starts hitting shelves outside China. That's a lot of money, but you're also getting what is arguably one of the best foldables today. The Magic V2 is a great phone in and of itself, and the Porsche Design additions take it to the next level.

80% Honor Magic V2 Porsche Design Edition Review: Cross-Branded Foldable Excess
Source: Slashgear English
This is a gorgeous edition of an already impressive phone, and it has powerful specifications to boot. The terabyte of onboard storage and 16GB of RAM matches the highest tier of the Honor Magic V2 that launched in Europe on January 26. That version of the phone starts at £1,699.99/€1,999.99. This special Porsche Edition of the phone's pricing will be announced at MWC at the end of February 2024, but it's likely to be higher than that. So then the question is, how does it measure up to other foldable phones? In terms of design, this phone is hard to beat. It's so ridiculously thin and light it's hard to recommend something else. Stylus compatibility is another bonus you don't get with every foldable. But in most ways, it still falls short of the OnePlus Open, which has better software, better cameras, and, by the way, is designed for U.S. customers with proper band support.

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). 

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

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


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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


7.92":

This display format is in the mid-range for smartphones. It offers a compromise between good visibility, details and resolution on the screen, and you can still fit it into trouser pockets.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


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).


87.3%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
