Reviews for the Honor MagicBook 14 2022

87.4% Honor MagicBook 14 2022 review: Multimedia laptop with RTX 2050 | Notebookcheck
Honor is now aiming to offer much more performance with its new MagicBook 14, which combines the latest 45-watt Alder Lake H processor with a dedicated Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 graphics card. Not to mention more key travel. Update: USB-C charging limitation confirmed by Honor.

The Honor MagicBook 14 (2022) looks to be a fantastic productivity laptop that not only excels at day-to-day workloads, but can even blitz through entry-level content creation too. It’s an excellent alternative to the MacBook Air for those who want to stick with Windows. It’s a shame that the design is a little bland, while also being noticeably chunkier and heavier than the vast majority of laptops at this price. And while the screen is perfectly fine, it pales in comparison to the OLED models that are only a few hundred quid more expensive. This is a great productivity laptop that should serve you well in your studies or office work, but it simply doesn’t offer any of the flashy features or styling to make it a more tempting option than a MacBook Air or Dell XPS 13 Plus.

The Honor MagicBook 14 2022 is a huge step forward for the Chinese brand but there are some outstanding issues like the lack of Thunderbolt and Wi-Fi 6E, the absence of a card reader, the odd choice of a 4-year old GPU and perhaps most damaging of all, Honor’s decision to bypass the massive US market for the third year running.

80% HONOR MagicBook 14 (2022) Review: Outstanding Battery Life & Solid Performance
Source: Android Headlines English
So, is this thing worth it? You’ll have to part with €1,099 to get the base model. The variant with the RTX 2050 GPU will cost you €1,299. If you’re planning to use this laptop for video editing, gaming, or some serious work in photoshop, we’d suggest you go for the variant with a dedicated graphics card. Everything else can be handled by this laptop, and considering that alternatives are usually more expensive, this is not a bad deal at all. The display is good as long as you’re not planning to use it outdoors, the camera is decent, the performance is good, and the battery life is excellent. The speakers are also not bad, despite their location, and the fingerprint scanner does the job too. You have all the ports you need, and so on. If you’re in the market for a 14-inch laptop, which is also quite powerful, this is not a bad buy.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 Mobile: Mid range laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 2,048 shaders (more than a RTX 2060) but only a small 64 Bit memory bus.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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

i5-12500H: On Alder-Lake based mobile CPU with 4 performance cores and 8 efficient cores. The performance cores offer hyper threading, leading to 16 threads that can be processed. The CPU clocks from 1.8 to 4.5 GHz and supports vPro.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

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.

1.559 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


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).

79.57%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
