60% Honor Magic4 Pro Review: Hardware Highs, Software Stumbles
Source: The Verge English
Honor has done a good job at speccing out the hardware of the Magic4 Pro. Its cameras are high resolution, it charges incredibly fast, its screen is beautiful (curved edges notwithstanding), and overall, the device’s hardware succeeds at having that premium flagship feel. If you want a phone that can wirelessly charge faster than many other phones can do over a wired connection, then the Honor Magic4 Pro is very happy to oblige. But I was never won over by the experience of actually using the Honor Magic4 Pro. Whether it was the occasional software hiccups, the aggressive background app management, or the lock screen shortcut that got in the way too often, it often felt like wearing a pair of shoes that were just half a size too big. When a phone costs as much as a Samsung or Apple flagship, you might find a better fit elsewhere.

Honor Magic4 Pro preview
Source: Phone Arena English
When Huawei sold Honor, back in 2020, many people were skeptical about the divorce, and suspected some kind of an affair still going on behind the curtains. There were even allegations that the Honor Magic 3 Pro model is just a rebranded Huawei Mate 50, although both companies firmly denied those rumors. Holding the Honor Magic 4 Pro in my hands, I can see where all this is coming from. There certainly are similarities between some devices from the ex-married couple but at the end of the day, It really doesn’t matter all that much from a consumer's point of view. I highly doubt that anyone could ever know the 100% truth behind the split. The practical result of it, however, is the fact that we now have another high quality brand to compete with the usual suspects, and this time with Google Services on board. The Magic 4 Pro looks like a high-end flagship through and through, and it should tick all the proverbial technology boxes. From the 6.81-inch LTPO OLED display to the 100x zoom telephoto lens, this phone holds a lot of promise. Time to go deeper!

Honor Magic 4 and 4 Pro Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The much-needed improvements in the camera, processor, display, and battery give the Honor Magic 4 and 4 Pro smartphones an incredible value in the flagship market. If you want a flagship smartphone with incredible cameras, then you can’t go wrong with either of these two smartphones. Both the smartphones will provide an excellent flagship experience but if you want a slight edge in the display, camera, charging capabilities, and water resistance, then the Honor Magic 4 Pro model makes more sense. Considering the specs and the experience the phone provides, the price of both smartphones is justified. But if want an alternative to compare before you make your decision, then the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is quite the competitor and can go toe to toe with the new Magic 4 and Magic 4 Pro series.

Honor Magic 4 Pro initial review: How much camera?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Magic 4 Pro is a flagship grade phone from Honor, packed with power and offering very fast charging rates. There's a compelling camera selection around the back of the phone and a great display on the front. First impressions of this device are solid - but we don't know when it will launch and how much it will cost.

As far as first impressions go, it's hard to complain about a phone with great specs like the Honor Magic 4. Matching a handsome design with best-in-class wireless charging speeds and stacks of power, it's looking promising for the first post-Huawei Honor flagship to hit the West.

Hands on: Honor Magic 4 Pro Review

The Honor Magic 4 Pro is a significant first step for Honor into the world of premium smartphones. This device is certainly feature-packed, and it could attract customers to the brand with its impressive camera system and attractive screen. However, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the design.

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 4 Pro Review: Snapdragon 8 Gen1, 100W Super Fast Charge
Source: Igeekphone English
Honor Magic 4 Pro, as Honor’s top machine king of the year, can be said to have no shortcomings in the design of configuration this time, and almost every configuration is top-level, and there are leading technologies. For example, in terms of screen, the technology that supports both LTPO and 1920 Hz high-frequency PWM dimming is very rare on other mobile phone. The multi-lens fusion photography technology in image photography also belongs to the current leading state. The optimization of the Snapdragon 8 processor, coupled with the 50W wireless fast charging technology for 100W wired customers, also maximizes the performance of Honor Magic 4 Pro. Honor Magic4Pro as the top machine king, this time is undoubtedly a success!

Qualcomm Adreno 730: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 30% faster than the Adreno 660 in the Snapdragon 888 SoC. For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in late 2021.

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 1: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2021 and manufactured in 4 nm at Samsung. Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a ARM Cortex-X2 architecture clocked at up to 3 GHz. Three more performance cores are based on the A710 but clock up to 2.5 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A510 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6e modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5 memory with up to 3,200 MHz. 5G is now included in the chip with the Snapdragon X65 modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
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.

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

0.215 kg:

This weight is typical for smartphones.


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).

84.67%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
