Reviews for the Honor MagicBook 16 2022

82.2% Honor MagicBook 16 2022 review - Good multimedia laptop with weak power adapter | Notebookcheck
The new MagicBook 16 from Honor succeeds the MagicBook Pro and offers a 16.1-inch IPS display with 144 Hz and a fast AMD Ryzen 5000 processor. However, the 65-watt power supply is problematic, as it is too weak for this system.
80% Honor MagicBook 16 review: a value-packed smash
Source: Stuff TV English
The Honor MagicBook 16 is a great value performance laptop that combines a bunch of admirable characteristics. It has a nice all-metal shell. Its screen is large but the laptop itself isn’t so big and heavy you’ll avoid carrying it around. The display delivers good colour and powerful maximum brightness. Like several Honor laptops, the MagicBook 16 is a top deal. Just don’t come expecting an actual miracle. The touchpad is plastic, and its tacky surface pulls off a much less persuasive impersonation of glass than some. Those spotlight-stealing speakers? Nah, they’re no good. And while the Ryzen 5 5600H packs a punch, its performance in the games we tried is a little worse than what you’d get from a low voltage Intel CPU laptop, which looks much less powerful on paper.

80% Honor MagicBook 16 (2022) review: a reasonably priced laptop with a big screen
Source: T3 English
You can use the Honor MagicBook 16 (2022) for just about any task from office work to light PC gaming. It has a big screen, decent performance and it looks great too, with a sleek modern design and slim bezels around the FHD screen. The battery life isn’t amazing so this might not be a great choice if you plan to use it out and about, but it barely takes any time at all to charge so it’ll be fine for taking between rooms in your house or office. If you need a well-rounded 16-inch laptop that won't cost you the earth, and you don’t mind the average battery life or the sheer size of it, the Honor MagicBook 16 (2022) is worth adding to your shortlist.

80% Honor MagicBook 16 (2022) review: A powerful, big-screen bargain
Source: Expert Reviews English
Much like its Honor and Huawei forebears, the MagicBook 16 is a solid and competent laptop that does little wrong. It has power enough to quickly chew through the majority of everyday computing tasks and, although the integrated GPU is rather feeble, it isn’t notably worse at gaming than any other laptop running Intel’s Iris Xe integrated graphics. In the end, the only reason the MagicBook 16 doesn’t get five stars is that the battery life is mediocre. If, however, you’re purchasing a laptop for mainly home use that won’t see much in the way of use on the road, then this is a very good option.

Comment

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics adapter of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 1,600 MHz.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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


1.834 kg:

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


Honor:

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).


79.8%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
