Reviews for the Honor Magic5 Ultimate

Honor Magic 5 Ultimate Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Honor Magic 5 Ultimate smartphone is one of the best smartphones that the company would offer this year. Unlike their standard mid-range phone, this phone is designed for premium end users, while it also provides superb camera quality better than the initial expectations. From start to end, we don’t find that many downsides to this phone. You are getting a pretty decent deal as a complete flagship package. There are only a handful of phones that can give tough competition to this phone, which includes the Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus or OnePlus 11. But at the same time, the phone is currently exclusive to the Chinese smartphone market, the company doesn’t give a clear green flag regarding the launch on the global stage. In that case, we would suggest you look at a choice in the same price range in the meantime.

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.

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.


It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

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


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).
