Honor MagicBook 15 (2021) Review - The switch to Intel is unnecessarily expensive

Not much new in 2021. The Honor MagicBook was one of the best multimedia notebooks last year when it came to the price-performance ratio. Now there is a current Tiger Lake processor instead of an AMD chip, but this also increases the price by around 300 Euros (~$356). Is that justified?
Andreas Osthoff, 👁 Andreas Osthoff, Brian Burriston (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

With the MagicBook 15, Honor presented a 15-inch multimedia notebook with a very good price-performance ratio last year. The AMD Ryzen 4000 processor has been replaced with a current Tiger Lake chip from Intel for the latest model. However, not much else has changed, but the price climbs to 949 Euros (~$1126) for our test configuration. Thus, the MagicBook 15 also has to face competitors that are partly equipped with dedicated graphics cards.

Case & Equipment

Honor continues to use the familiar metal casing, which still leaves a good impression. The combination of gray surfaces and blue design elements (surrounding screen edge, Honor logo) looks good and there is also little to complain about in terms of stability. You can provoke slight image errors with a lot of pressure on the lid, but that shouldn't really be an issue in normal use. Honor still relies on a 16:9 panel, but the screen's edges are very narrow on the sides and upper edge, which is why the device still looks modern.

The bottom cover can be removed (Torx T5) and you get access to the fan and the M.2-2280 SSD, but the WLAN module cannot be replaced anymore. Theoretically, there would also be room for a 2.5-inch drive, but the necessary mounting parts and cables are missing.

Equipment

There are no changes in the ports. Besides the USB-C connector, which is also used for charging, there are still two regular USB-A connectors. However, there is only USB 2.0 speed on the right side, which is incomprehensible in 2021. Thunderbolt is also not available.

The WLAN module (Intel AX201) is up to date with Wi-Fi 6 and also achieves very good transfer rates in our standardized WLAN test with the router Netgear Nighthawk RAX120. Here we see a clear improvement compared to the old AMD MagicBook 15 (Wi-Fi 5).

Input devices - Honor again without keyboard illumination

The keyboard with the slightly roughened keys is still decent. The key drop is limited, but the feedback is precise and we could not detect any problems. This is also true for the ClickPad, which produces quite loud clicking noises. What we cannot understand, however, is the renewed lack of a keyboard backlight. Both the MagicBook 14 and the MagicBook Pro 16 have one, and those who often work in darker environments will quickly get annoyed about the missing illumination.

Display - MagicBook 15 with 16:9 IPS panel

The basic characteristics of the panel remain the same (Full HD, IPS, 300 cd/m²), but Honor uses a different panel from BOE. There is no PWM flickering anymore and the brightness is also a bit higher than the advertised claim. We measured an average of just under 320 cd/m² and a decent black value of 0.27 cd/m², which leads to a very good contrast ratio. The subjective picture impression of the matte panel is good and even bright surfaces do not look too grainy. There is only minimal screen bleeding at the upper edge, but that is only noticeable with full brightness and a dark background.

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
24.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 10.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 43 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
36 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 18 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 34 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (37.8 ms).

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 not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15366 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The panel is not well adjusted in its state of delivery. Some colors deviate significantly from the target value (<3) and there is also a slight blue cast with a somewhat too cool color temperature. We measured and calibrated the panel with the professional CalMAN software and the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer and were able to improve the display significantly. To our surprise, the maximum brightness is also only slightly reduced. Thanks to the full sRGB coverage, you can use the calibrated panel for editing pictures/videos without hesitation.

Thanks to the matte surface, the notebook can also be used in bright environments if you do not turn it directly into the sun. The viewing angle stability of the IPS panel is also very good.

Performance - Honor combines Tiger-Lake CPU with fast SSD

As with the AMD models, the pre-installed PC Manager also offers a performance mode, but we could not detect any effects on the performance or emissions. The following benchmarks and measurements were therefore all performed in normal mode.

Processor - Intel Tiger Lake i5-1135G7

The Core i5-1135G7 comes from Intel's current Tiger Lake generation and offers four cores (8 threads) that can reach a maximum of 4.2 GHz (or 3.8 Ghz for all cores). Honor sets the power limits to 65 and 28 watts, respectively. Our processor consumes a maximum of ~38 watts at 4x 3.8 GHz, but then also drops quite quickly and settles at just under 19 watts under permanent load. Thus, the system mainly benefits from the high limits during short load peaks, which also occur frequently in everyday use.

The single-core performance of the Core i5 is better than that of the Ryzen 5 4500U of the old MagicBook 15, but you will hardly notice this difference in practice. If you load all cores, the AMD chip even has advantages. All in all, the CPU performance of the new MagicBook 15 is decent, but it could be better.

The processor is allowed to consume a maximum of 28 watts in battery mode, so you have to reckon with a deficit of around 15% here.

System performance

The very good subjective performance impression mainly benefits from the fast PCIe-SSD and an otherwise balanced system without bottlenecks. 16 GB of RAM in dual-channel mode should also be completely sufficient for the coming years.

DPC latencies

As already with the AMD model of the MagicBook 15 our Intel tester also performs very well in the latency test and the notebook is therefore also suitable for real-time audio applications.

Mass storage - PCIe-SSD from Western Digital

The PCIe-SSD (M.2-2280) in our test device comes from the manufacturer Western Digital (SN730) and offers a storage capacity of 512 GB, of which about 410 GB are available for the user after the first start-up. It is a fast PCIe 3.0 drive, but again, the factory partition of the SSD bothers us. There is just 74 GB available on the system drive; if you are not careful during installations or downloads, these are quickly used up. More SSD benchmarks can be found in our technology section.

Graphics card - Xe Graphics G7 with 80 EUs

GPU-Z Iris Xe Graphics G7
GPU-Z Iris Xe Graphics G7

The Core i5-1135G7 is equipped with the fast integrated GPU Iris Xe Graphics G7 but in contrast to the i7 CPUs, a slightly slower version with 80 processing units is used. The iGPU also benefits from the dual-channel mode of the working memory, whereby models with faster LPDDR4x RAM have another slight advantage here.

In comparison with the Vega 6 of the AMD model the GPU performance is about 30% higher in the synthetic tests and overall on the expected level for this GPU. The comparison devices with the dedicated GeForce MX450 offer about 30-40% more performance again. Another advantage of the Xe Graphics G7 over the Vega 6 (Ryzen 4000) is the more efficient video decoder.

The graphics performance is not reduced in battery mode.

Gaming performance

Games also run a bit faster due to the increased GPU performance, but the difference to the AMD-based MagicBook 15 is not really big. You are still limited to the minimum settings in many games if you want to play smoothly. At least the gaming performance remains constant, though. More gaming benchmarks are available here.
