Honor Magic4 Pro 5G review - Versatile camera smartphone with a wide range of features

Strong comeback. The Honor Magic4 Pro is a high-end smartphone with a wide variety of features and the first model from the former Huawei subsidiary since the acquisition. Thanks to the lack of trade restrictions, it offers a great feature set with a focus on the camera setup.

Although the Honor Magic series was revived last year, our test device's predecessor Magic3 Pro did not come to Europe due to ongoing trade restrictions. Now that the former Huawei subsidiary has been sold to a Chinese investment syndicate, Honor no longer falls under the US sanctions and is thus able to source modern chipsets, 5G radios, and Google Mobile Services (GMS).

The Honor Magic4 Pro is not that different from its predecessor and uses the same design language. However, the display has slightly grown in size and both the SoC and the camera sensors have been upgraded. Conveniently, there is now an IP certification and high-power wired and wireless charging. Additionally, the Magic4 Pro is one of the few Android smartphones that make use of 3D facial recognition.

Case - Lots of Glass and Similarities to the Mate Series

The Honor Magic4 Pro is available in black and cyan color variants with additional white, gold, and orange versions being potentially available depending on the region. Our test device is a cyan model with a thickness of 9.15 mm (~0.36 in) according to the datasheet. We measured 9.45 mm (~0.37 in). Due to the camera setup taking up a lot of space, the smartphone does not wiggle around when set down on a flat surface. With 1.7 mm (~0.07 in), the camera bump is not too pronounced.

We are very pleased with the workmanship. The slim metal frame makes for a robust and premium appearance. The glass display sits flush with the frame and the slightly sloped glass edges make the Honor look almost frameless, an impression that is further reinforced by the screen-to-body ratio of 93%. While the clearances are tight and even, the Magic4 Pro creaks noticeably when twisted from the corners.

There is a recessed SIM tray cover inside the frame with an identical color finish and a metal front. The tray itself consists of black plastic and accepts two nano SIM cards. The battery is fixed and not user replaceable. With an IP68 certification, the Honor Magic4 Pro is both water- and dustproof.

Connectivity - Honor Smartphone with USB 3.2 and IR Blaster

Although the USB 3.2 port (gen. 1) of the Honor Magic4 Pro is able to transfer data at up to 5 Gb/s, the package only includes a USB 2.0 cable. The interface supports both OTG as well as video output to HDMI and DisplayPort devices. Here, users are able to choose between simple screen mirroring or using the integrated desktop mode.

Expanding the storage is not possible. There is also no FM receiver or notification LED. If desired, the latter can be replaced by a feature of the always-on display, however. The connectivity of the Honor phone is otherwise excellent with modern Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and an IR blaster that can be used to control multimedia devices, cameras, or air conditioners.

Software - Google Android 12 including Desktop Mode

Android 12 is the operating system of choice with the manufacturer's own Magic UI 6.0 layered on top. Users familiar with past Honor smartphones will feel right at home. Since the Google apps and services are no longer missing, both the Play Store and Google Pay are once again available.

There are only a few preinstalled third-party apps on the Magic4 Pro including Netflix and TikTok and they can be easily uninstalled. At the time of this article, the security patches date back to May 1st 2022, making them fairly recent. Honor promises two major Android version updates, so up to Android 14, and security patches for four years.

If the smartphone is connected to a monitor or TV via an optional cable, the integrated desktop mode can be used. Although it worked well during our testing, we were unable to access the Play Store or Chrome in this mode. Other browsers worked without any issues.

Communication and GNSS - Magic4 Pro with 5G and Wi-Fi 6

In terms of the communication, the Honor Magic4 Pro comes with a slight drawback, since the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard is not supported and 6-GHz can thus not be used. By contrast, the Honor does support VHT160, making the transfer speeds between it and our reference router Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 not just consistent, but extremely fast even in the 5-GHz network.

All major standards for cellular networks including 5G sub6 are available. Since the amount of supported frequencies is high, users should be able to access the web from most countries in the world.

GNSS

For geolocation purposes, the Magic4 Pro has access to a wide range of satellite networks and even allows for triple connectivity. Outdoors, the satellite uplink is quickly established and even indoors, the smartphone is able to locate us within just a few seconds.

We put the Magic4 Pro up against the Garmin Venu 2 on our small test track for comparison purposes. The difference between the recorded distances amounts to only 20 meters (~65.6 ft) at a total distance of just under ten kilometers (~6.21 mi). A closer look at the detailed route attests to the Honor smartphone's precise geolocation capabilities.

Telephony and Call Quality

The Magic4 Pro supports common telephony features such as VoLTE, VoWi-Fi, and even an eSIM instead of a secondary, physical nano SIM card. However, the Honor operating system does not include SIP account management.

When held up to an ear, the call quality is very natural sounding and warrants no criticism; even minor ambient or static background noise is filtered out reliably. Unfortunately, this changes when using the speakerphone. Users then sound somewhat hollow and dull, although the volume level remains consistent and the range at which the microphone captures voices is also decent.

Cameras - Versatile Triple Camera with Slight Video Stuttering Issues

Magic4 Pro selfie
Magic4 Pro selfie

There is a 12-MP front camera and a 3D ToF on the front of the Honor Magic4Pro inside a cutout in the display. Under good lighting conditions, the pictures look fairly good, while the automatic HDR mode balances out shots against the light. Additionally, the smartphone comes with a Bokeh mode and a highly customizable beauty mode. Video recordings can be created at up to Ultra HD and 30 FPS.

The main sensor of the triple camera on the back is a 50-MP sensor. While Honor does not go into detail about its origin, the data sheet points towards a Sony IMX766 sensor. The pictures in daylight shine with good contrast and many details. Similarly, the Magic4 Pro's dynamic range makes for appealing shots. Although the colors are brightened a lot, they do not look oversaturated. We are very pleased with the overall image composition of the Honor smartphone. That being said, low-light situations result in noticeably muddy areas. Here, Honor may have been better off reducing the brightening in favor of capturing more details.

While the ultrawide sensor also has a resolution of 50 MP, it is smaller than the main sensor. Under daylight, it captures appealing pictures with a sufficient depth of field and no chromatic aberrations. The periscope optics offers a 3.5x optical zoom, and up to 100x digital zoom. Pictures remain acceptable up to about 10x zoom, with higher zoom levels giving up too much in terms of sharpness and details.

Video recording is also one of the main focuses of the Honor Magic4 Pro. The normal video mode supports up to Ultra HD resolution at up to 30 or 60 FPS at aspect ratios of 16:9 or 21:9. Switching to the film mode allows users to choose between 30 and 24 FPS (UHD), an optional HDR10+ mode, and the LOG mode (60 FPS). The LOG mode offers a particularly high bitrate (Rec.709 format, 10 Bit, IMAX Enhanced) and promises more post-processing flexibility. Although we are pleased with the visuals of the videos, panning still causes slight stuttering - we hope that Honor will fix this in a future update.

Accessories and Warranty - 100-Watt Charger included

The package of the Honor Magic4 Pro includes a powerful 100-watt charger, an appropriate USB cable (Type-A to Type-C), a SIM tool, and a transparent silicone case. A wireless 100W charging station for around 100 USD and a black PU case for about 20 USD are also available.

Honor offers an up to 2-year limited warranty depending on the place of purchase.

Input Devices & Handling - Magic4 Pro with Secure Biometrics

The Honor Magic4 Pro has a capacitive touchscreen that is able to simultaneously detect up to ten inputs. It comes with a factory-applied screen protector with good gliding properties. While the transition at the edges is somewhat rough, this can be easily remedied by using the included bumper.

The knuckle gestures from previous models are once again available and there are a few additional features such as Multi Window and Smart Sensing, which can be enabled from the settings. A one-handed mode can be enabled as well, although it may take some practice in conjunction with the gesture controls.

The biometric security features are high-tech. This is one of the few Android smartphones with 3D facial recognition (ToF). The authentication is not only fast but also more secure compared to the 2D counterpart via the front camera. Similarly, the under-display fingerprint sensor is an ultrasound model, which quickly and reliably unlocks the phone through a saved print. A total of five fingerprints can be saved.

Display - Honor Smartphone with Bright LTPO OLED and 120 Hz

Subpixel array
Subpixel array

The Honor Magic4 Pro comes with a 6.81-inch LTPO OLED panel that offers a high pixel density and a unique resolution that falls somewhere between Full HD and QHD+. The system is able to automatically adjust the refresh rate between 1 and 120 Hz or users can select a fixed 60-, 90-, or 120-Hz refresh rate. HLG, HDR10, and HDR10+ are supported for displaying HDR content.

The brightness of a purely white image reaches 956 nits with the ambient light sensor enabled. The OLED panel produces similar results in the APL measurements. When controlling the brightness manually, up to 573 nits is possible. Unfortunately, the minimum luminance is somewhat high.

While the Magic4 Pro suffers from screen flickering like all other OLEDs, Honor promises a DC dimming mode with a frequency of 1920 Hz for noticeably reduced eyestrain. In our measurements, this manifests as a steady cycle with a consistent frequency that matches the refresh rate.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 119.9 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 119.9 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 119.9 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19681 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Measurements at a fixed zoom level and various brightness settings

While the panel of the Honor Magic4 Pro can produce good images, this required us to adjust the settings and limit it to the smaller sRGB color space. Curiously, we had to choose the color temperature setting Cold. The color balance is warmer on the default settings and suffers from a green tint, which makes the screen content look somewhat sickly.

Although the Honor smartphone does well, it is not quite as color accurate as competitors from the same price category.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
1.49 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.629 ms rise
↘ 0.559 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.9 ms).

We are very pleased with the viewing angles of the Honor smartphone. Although a faint green tint can be observed at extreme angles and the perceived brightness drops, this does not noticeably affect daily use.

Performance - Magic4 Pro with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1

The Honor Magic4 Pro relies on a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which - after the brand-new Snapdragon 8+ gen 1 - is the fastest Android SoC currently available. Additionally, the Honor phone receives 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM with a 12-GB variant being available at certain retailers.

The Magic smartphone comes with a so-called performance mode, which has little to no effect on the CPU and system performance. The Geekbench results remained at the same level, while the AI and system performance rose by a few percentage points. For day-to-day tasks, the accompanying increased power draw is not a worthwhile trade. However, the benchmarks fall somewhat short of our expectations with the performance mode disabled. Although the Geekbench single-core performance remains identical, the all-core performance drops by around 10 %.

The Magic4 Pro's Adreno 730 offers lots of graphics performance and the benchmark results mostly match our expectations for this graphics chip. However, as the offscreen results of GFXBench show, there is often untapped potential, indicating that the SoC's cooling solution is not equipped to support a consistently high-performance level.

* ... smaller is better

With 8GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal UFS 3.1 storage, the Magic4 Pro's memory configuration is decent. In light of the price, however, at least the RAM capacity could have been higher. In China, there are two more memory configurations: 12/256 GB and 12/512 GB.

We have no complaints regarding the speeds of the installed memory, which allows for fast data transfers.

Gaming - Honor Smartphone with Lots of Gaming Power

While we would have liked to show our GameBench gaming benchmarks here, the frame rates are not being logged, even though Gamebench appears to begin recording the FPS. We were unable to determine the cause and contacted GameBench regarding the issue to hopefully be able to append the results in the future.

The Adreno 730 offers fast gaming performance and runs all titles smoothly at maximum details. PUBG Mobile allows the selection of the Ultra HD setting and does not suffer from stuttering. Less demanding titles such as Armajet allow for an uncapped frame rate. Thus, 120 FPS is theoretically possible, but unlikely based on our experience. However, similar frame rates are definitely achievable in other HFR games.

The surface temperatures of the Honor Magic4 Pro 5G remain low in all scenarios for comfortable handling.

The opposite holds true for the SoC temperature. Here, the Honor smartphone throttles fairly early, but still manages to land in the same range as its Snapdragon 8 gen 1 competitors in terms of long-term performance, whereas the Xiaomi 12 Pro is the only outlier due to heavier throttling.

Speakers

The two speakers of the Honor Magic4 Pro offer a fairly decent sound that, while it lacks bass, is fairly pleasant to listen to, particularly at medium volume levels. At higher volume levels, the treble becomes somewhat overwhelming for a somewhat hollow overall sound.

Since there is no headphone jack, wired headphones and headsets can only be connected via USB. Of course, it is also possible to use an adapter instead. The Magic4 Pro is well-prepared for wireless audio and supports all major audio codecs (SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX HD, and LDAC).

Battery Life - Fast Charging at up to 100 Watts

Energy Consumption

The power consumption of the Magic4 Pro at maximum brightness is slightly too high during idle. With an LTPO panel, the smartphone should be significantly more energy efficient. Similarly, the Honor phone draws a lot of power during our GFXBench test at a lower brightness setting.

With the included 100-watt SuperCharge charger, the Magic4 Pro can be fully recharged within 20 minutes. Wireless charging at up to 100 watts is also supported. Furthermore, other Qi-capable devices can be charged by the Magic4 Pro via reverse charging.
