Honor Magic6 Lite Review: Sleek 5G smartphone with high-end looks for a budget

More efficiency in the mid range is not possible. The Honor Magic6 Lite combines the features of a mid range phone with the design of a high end device. In this review of the Magic 6 Lite, you will see if the concept of the Honor phone with its 120 Hz AMOLED panel works and if it is worth a purchase.

The newest mid-range phone from Honor looks similar to its predecessor, but still has a bunch of improvements – starting with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 6 Gen 1, which replaces the obsolete Snapdragon 695 5G of the Magic5 Lite. Also, the Magic6 Lite adopts a new 108 MPix camera with a more light-transmissive f/1.75 lens and a big 5,300 mAh battery.

In terms of pricing, the Honor puts its Lite model into the mid-range, as it starts at €400 in Europe. There is only one configuration, with 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB UFS storage drive. With the in-house Turbo technology, the RAM can be expanded to 8 GB. This works by using parts of the UFS storage. But since it is much slower than the RAM, this will only be beneficial in rare cases.

Chassis - Magic6 Lite with vegan leather

Available colors for the Honor Magic6 Lite
Available colors for the Honor Magic6 Lite

Despite the big battery capacity of the Magic6 Lite, the weight of only 185 g is pretty low. With its screen to body ratio of 91 percent, the Honor phone looks very sleek and modern. Smaller bezels than on the Magic6 Lite are nowhere to be found in the mid-range. The screen is protected with the Ultra Bounce anti-drop technology, increasing the protection against drops and increasing reliability. Drops of up to 1.5 m should be no issue, no matter the angle. Honor did not divulge which glass is used here.

On the back, the Magic6 Lite sports a nice finish: The chassis is either clad in vegan leather or made out of matte plastic. In Germany, there are three color variants: Emerald Green, Midnight Black and Sunrise Orange (vegan leather), with the orange one being limited to the Honor online-store. There is no IP rating.

The workmanship of the Magic6 Lite casing is good, though not quite as premium as we hoped. Our green test sample does not feel cheap, but phones with a glass back seem higher quality to us. The gaps between chassis components are tight and uniformly.

Connectivity - Honor Magic6 Lite with USB 2.0

The connectivity options of the Magic6 Lite are more than adequate for a €400 phone. NFC, USB OTG and miracast are par for the course. Honor also says the phone supports Bluetooth 5.1, which is curious, as the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 does support Bluetooth 5.2.

A differerntiator to premium devices is the slow USB 2.0 standard, which does not support tethered picture output either. With our copy-test with a M.2 SSD (Samsung 980 Pro), the USB port only manages a very slow 22 MB/s. exFAT and the Microsoft standard NTFS are supported.

The UFS 3.1 memory has a capacity of 256 GB, with 223 GB available to the user. It is somewhat disappointing that there is no 512 GB version. Expanding the memory via microSD cards is not possible.

Software - Honor phone with Android 13

The OS of the device is the not quite fresh Android 13 with November 2023 security updates.  On top of the OS, Honor slaps its Magic UI 7.2. An upgrade to Android 14 and its predecessor is planned, but no more. Security updates are guaranteed for three years. This places Honor behind Samsung, as the Korean giant updates its Galaxy A54 5G, another mid-range phone, for five years.

Communication and GNSS - Magic6 Lite with 5G

The Magic6 Lite only supports WiFi 5 - sadly, in this regard, the Honor mid range stands still. With our reference router, the Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, transfer rates are limit to 350 MBit/s in the 5 GHz network, not a lot for a phone with this pricing. At least, the WiFi performance is consistent no matter is data is received or sent. 

Only a limited amount of frequencies are supported when it comes to mobile data. Only 13 LTE bands are available - in this case, the most important 4G bands for Germany are covered, and 5G is supported, too.

The Magic6 Lite supports most global satellite networks, but only with single band support. In the mid-range, compromises like this are everywhere and geolocation was still precise for the Honor phone.

On the go with the bike, we compared the geolocation capabilities with a Garmin Venu 2. The overall distance is just 10 m less, but there are some small regularities in terms of the course of the road. The Garmin watch is more precide, but the Honor mid-range phone is still very usable for navigation purposes.

The Magic6 Lite provides a great voice-capture quality and filters out background noise well. This is a dual SIM phone with room for two physical nanoSIM cards, eSIM is not supported. Functions like VoLTE and WiFi calling however are.

Cameras - Honor smartphone with 108 MPix

Selfie with the Honor Magic6 Lite
Selfie with the Honor Magic6 Lite

The main camera is new compared with the Magic5 Lite getan, the selfie shooter stays the same: The 16 MPix cam uses a f/2.45 shutter, being located in the central hole punch. Selfies are smoothed out, but the quality is pretty much what we expect for this price range.

Much better pictures are possible with the new main camera with a 108 MPix sensor in the 1/1.67 inch format and a big f/1.75 shutter, which lets in more light than with the predecessor. Still, low light photography is not a strength of the Magic6 Lite, as we wish the lighting was better and the pics in the dark lack in details. There is no optical image stabilization (OIS).

At daylight, the 108 MPix camera works better and delivers sharp images, but even here, the picture is darkened, muting the images the Magic6 Lite produces.

There is no optical zoom in the case of the Magic6 Lite. Due to the high resolution of the 108 MPix shooter, up to 3x of digital zoom is usable though. Of course, the sensor crop still loses some of the sharpness and details. For better results, the small native pixels of the Samsung ISOCELL HM6 need even more light when zooming.

The 5 MPix ultrawide cam with 110 degrees of view and the 2 MPix macro sensor with a focus-lenght of 4 cm may look nice on the spec sheet, but they do not really produce great pictures.

In terms of video, the Magic6 Lite scores points with UHD quality capture in 30 FPS. With the selfie shooter, video is capped at FHD@30 FPS.

Accessories and warranty - Magic6 Lite without charger

SuperCharge Power Adapter of the Honor Magic 6 Lite

The included accessories with the Magic6 Lite are barebones for a mid range phone. There is just a USB 2.0 cable, a SIM tool and some info material in the box. Optionally available is the SuperCharge power adapter (€30 on its own) for one Euro extra if ordered with the phone. A screen protector can be added for free as well (which would cost €26 otherwise).

The warranty in Germany covers two years.

Input devices and handling - Honor Magic6 Lite with face unlock

The capacitive touchscreen of the Magic6 Lite is smooth, translating inputs of up to 10 fingers at the same time precisely. Ex factory, there is a screen protector applies, which feels less than high quality. Animations and scrolling are smooth with the 120 Hz panel, but sometimes there are some slightly stutters.

A small haptic motor handles vibrations. It is not very precise though, just a buzzing effect.

For fast unlocking, users can choose either the an unsecure 2D face unlook, which works fast but only in good lighting, or the fingerprint sensor. The optical sensor beneath the OLED panel works flawlessly, though it could be faster.

Screen - Honor Smartphone with OLED

The OLED panel uses a RGGB sub pixel matrix with one red, one blue and two green diodes.
The OLED panel uses a RGGB sub pixel matrix with one red, one blue and two green diodes.

Equipped with a curved 6.78 inch AMOLED screen, the Magic6 Lite with its 1,200p resolution offers a high DPI count of 429. The refresh rate is not dynamic, like it is with an LTPO panel, it only automatically switches between two levels (60 Hz and 120 Hz). 

The Honor phone supports the HDR standard HGL, HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Also, it has a number of eye safe technologies, including Low Blue light mode and 1,920 Hz dimming. We did measure PWM of 528 Hz with our oscilloscope, but our measurements with a flicker meter resulted in a much higher value (1,920 Hz). This minimizes the negative side effects of PWM like headaches, as it reduces visible flickering for the human eye.

The brightness of the Magic6 Lite is improved compared with the predecessor, reaching 1,032 cd/m² with a completely white screen and an enabled light sensor. With HDR and APL18 content, we were able to only increase the brightness to 1,050 cd/m², not seeing the typical OLED improvement in HDR mode.

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 528 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 528 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 528 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18170 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Measurements with fixed zoom for different brightness values

The best color accuracy is reached when the color-mode "normal" is selected in the settings with the color temperatures at „standard“ belassen wird. The color deviations against the sRGB gamut we can measure with the photo-spectrometer X-Rite i1 Pro 3 and CalMan are rather low. The differences to the reference-colors are not visible to the eye.

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

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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.6 ms).

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 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34 ms).

Outdoors, the Magic6 Lite leaves us impressed thanks to the high screen brightness. Note though that the maximum brightness is only available when the light sensor is used. For manual brightness regulation, the maximum brightness sits at 606 cd/m².

Viewing angle stability is very good, even with extreme viewing angles, there is only a minimal loss of brightness. Colors do not change.

Performance - Honor Magic6 Lite with Qualcomm-SoC

Even though the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 is a rather new chipset (announced 2022, 4 nm node), the Magic6 Lite is no performance powerhouse in the 400 Euro class. Especially in Geekbench single core, the Cortex A78 performs rather week compared with the competition. A Poco F5 with the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 including the Cortex X2 core is 50 percent faster than the Honor phone.

But even in system-benchmarks, like Antutu, the Magic6 Lite can hardely compete. If someone does not use the performance mode, which is not enabled ex factory, performance potential is wasted.

The GPU core is the Adreno 710, which also is used in the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 of the Redmi Note 13 Pro. The Magic6 Lite does not reach the performance of the Xiaomi phone, however. Especially in the more demanding Aztec Ruins test, the competition is faster than the Magic6 Lite.

In the browser benchmarks, the Magic6 Lite is worse than expected after the CPU/GPU tests. This is also mirrored by everyday performance. Browsing speed is at a solid mid-range level, but there are often small stutters and loading websits somtimes takes its sweet time.

In terms of speed, the internal memory of the Honor phone offers a good performance, especially compared with the UFS 2.2 competition like the Redmi Note 13 Pro. However, the Magic6 Lite is not as slow compared with other UFS 3.1 models, which may be due to the Snapdragon SoC.

Games - Magic6 Lite manages 60 fps

After our GPU benchmarks the Adreno 710, accomanied by 8 GB RAM, has to show if demanding and HFR gaming is possible with the Magic6 Lite. For our measurements, we use GameBench.

As the first game, we looked at the GPU intensive Fantasy Action RPG Genshin Impact. Set on high details, there are frame drops lowering the fun considerably. Overall, the average here are 29.5 FPS. With reduced graphics, we were able to pull out more than respectable 49 FPS, which looks visible smoother. The possible 60 FPS are not reached.

Even less demanding games, like Dead Trigger 2, do not utilize the full 120 Hz of the OLED panel. We measure a framerate of 60 FPS.

The FPS for PUBG Mobile with high details in UHD resolution are constant at 40 FPS. If we reduce the settings (HD), the GPU unit manages 60 FPS. A 90 FPS setting is not available.

Emissions - almost no throttling with the Honor Magic6 Lite

Temperatures

Surface temperatures are low during idling. When under sustained load, they rise to 43 degrees Celsius max. To measure the internal heat-output, we use the 3DMark stress tests. Here, the Qualcomm SoC shows almost not throttling in compute-intensive scenarios. Throttling under load in everyday use are not to be expected with the Honor phone.

Speakers

The Magic6 Lite only has a mono-speaker, which does manage to play audio very loudly. While the highs are linear, the mid-part of the spectrum are more inconsistent. The lower frequencies are barely there, base is lacking. 

Headsets and earbuds can be connected tetherless with Bluetooth 5.1 (according to the spechseet) or via the USB C port. The supported Audio codecs could not be singled out with the Magic6 Lite.

Battery life - Honor phone with plenty of battery power

Power consumption

The battery grows compared with the predecessor to 5,300 mAh, which can be charged up via the USB port with up to 35 W. With a fitting power source (Powerbank, PD 3.0, max. 100 W), the battery of the Magic6 Lite can be charged up in 2.5 hours. Honor advertises a long live for the battery, which is supposed to still offer 80 percent of the original capacity after 1,000 charge cycles.

Power consumption under load is low, despite to the the burnout benchmark. Other smartphones, like the Poco F5, perform worse here. When idling however, the Honor phone consumes rather a lot with more than 2 W.

Verdict for the Honor Magic6 Lite

in review: Honor Magic6 Lite. Review device supplied by Honor.
in review: Honor Magic6 Lite. Review device supplied by Honor.

The Magic6 Lite impresses with its modern design without big bezels aroud the 6.78 inches big AMOLED panel - especially with the tapered off screen edges. The screen is bright and calibrated accurately. If the 1,000 cd/m² are not enough, the  Redmi Note 13 Pro could be an interesting mid range alternative with an even brighter screen.   

The Honor Magic6 Lite is a visually pleasing design, but the features lag behind due to the focus on looks.

With $400-smartphones, compromise is always somewhere around the corner. With the Magic 6 Lite, there are too man of them for our tastebuds. The missing IP certification or the slow USB port are everywhere in the middle class, but the Honor phone deserves criticism for the limited WWAN and WiFi 5 frequencies and the missing stereo sound. Additionally, the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 used here is no powerhouse for a phone of this segment. The Poco F5 delivers a much better performance.     

Honor delivers updates for three years - not bad, but Samsung offers five years with its Galaxy A54 5G. With the OIS as well as eSIM and microSD support, the Samsung Phone is an interesting alternative to the Magic6 Lite.

Pricing and availability

The Honor Magic6 Lite costs €400 in Germany.
