Honor MagicBook Pro in review - 16-inch multimedia laptop with a lot of power

Price-performance champion. With the MagicBook Pro, Honor offers a well-equipped multimedia laptop with the latest Ryzen processor and a large 16.1-inch display. In our test, the device is almost completely convincing, and in many areas, it can also keep up with significantly more expensive competitors.
Andreas Osthoff, 👁 Andreas Osthoff (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇪🇸 ...

After Honor, Huawei's subsidiary, had already celebrated a good start with the two MagicBook 14 and 15 models in the segment of low-priced laptops, we are now presented with a significantly larger device. The MagicBook Pro is equipped with a 16.1-inch display (Full HD), and a current AMD Ryzen processor (H series, 45-watt class) is running on the inside. In addition, there's 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512 GB PCIe SSD, and a backlit keyboard for 899 Euros (~$1,053).

Case - Like a large MateBook 13

In contrast to the previous MagicBook models, which were based on the case design of the inexpensive Huawei MateBook D series, Honor now bases its larger MagicBook Pro on the design of the more expensive MateBooks such as the MateBook 13 or the MateBook X Pro, from which it has also adopted the Space Grey color. Visually, the laptop is, in any case, quite discreet, as the only accents are the dark keyboard including the speaker covers, the black plastic screen frame, and the dark Honor logo on the lid. The screen bezels are very narrow at 4.9 mm; only below the panel is the frame thicker.

The aluminum case's stability is okay considering the price. The base unit shows a good torsion resistance and hardly gives way even under a lot of pressure. The thinner screen lid, on the other hand, doesn't perform quite as well. It can barely be twisted, but localized pressure on the back leads to visible alterations on the display. The central hinge is properly adjusted, but it can't prevent a slight wobbling from happening. The maximum aperture angle is around 160 degrees.

The MagicBook Pro doesn't come close to the case quality of the Dell XPS 15, but in view of the price, the quality is very good and also better than many plastic cases in this segment.

The footprint is almost exactly the same as with the Xiaomi RedmiBook 16 and is, overall, much closer to typical 15.6-inch laptops than to larger 17-inch devices. The weight of just under 1.7 kg is pretty much in the midfield of our comparison group. You have to take another 200 grams into account due to the compact power adapter.

Connectivity - MagicBook Pro without Thunderbolt 3

There's a good mix in terms of connections, since besides the USB-C port, there's also a full-fledged HDMI output and three regular USB-A ports, so adapters are not required. According to the data sheet, the USB-C port can only be used to charge the device and to transfer data. However, we could also control a 4K screen without any issues using an appropriate HDMI adapter. The problem then is that the charging port is occupied.

Communication

Users of the MagicBook Pro have to do without modern Wi-Fi 6, but the WLAN module from Realtek also does its job properly. In our standardized test with the Netgear Nighthawk RAX120 router, we determined stable transfer speeds of over 600 Mb/s. In addition to the common WLAN standards including the fast 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0 is also supported.

Webcam

For the webcam, Honor uses a pop-up camera placed in one of the F keys (between F6 and F7). This protects the lens and adds privacy, but it produces a minimally distorted image. In addition, the angle isn't optimal because the image is taken from a very low position. The image quality of the 720p webcam is also quite poor.

Maintenance

The bottom cover is secured with a total of 10 screws (Torx T5) and can be removed very easily. Both the WLAN module and the M.2 2280 SSD can be exchanged if necessary, but RAM is soldered.

Input devices - Honor laptop with backlit keyboard

Keyboard

The black chiclet keyboard corresponds exactly to the input devices from the Huawei MateBook 13 and 14. The additional space at the sides isn't used for a number pad but for the two speakers instead (more about this later). Some special keys seem a bit crowded, but overall, you get used to the input device quickly. The two vertical arrow keys are only half the normal size, which can sometimes lead to incorrect input.

The typing experience is good on average. The stroke noise is pretty quiet, but the feedback is a bit mushy with some keys (e.g. space bar, arrow keys). There's no question that there are better laptop keyboards, but you can also write longer text without any problems on the MagicBook Pro. A big advantage, especially in the evening hours, is the two-stage white keyboard backlight. The power button, which is located on the right speaker strip, is also a fingerprint scanner.

Touchpad

The plastic ClickPad has a smoother surface than the rest of the base unit and is, therefore, easy to identify. With its 12 x 7.2 cm, the area is sufficiently large, and cursor movements are done smoothly. Honor could improve the click mechanism, though. The pad can be pressed down in the lower area, but this is acknowledged with a quite loud and cheap-sounding noise.

Display - Matte Full HD IPS panel

Slight screen bleeding
Slight screen bleeding

The 16.1-inch IPS display offers Full HD resolution (16:9) and comes from Innolux in our test device. The data sheet advertises a brightness of 300 cd/m², which we can confirm. The value is above 300 cd/m² at all measuring points. Bright areas only look minimally grainy; overall, the subjective image quality is very good. This is also due to the excellent contrast ratio of almost 1,700:1.

At full brightness and with a dark background image, slight screen bleeding can be seen both at the lower edge as well as in the two upper corners, but this is hardly noticeable in practice. The display's response times are inconspicuous, and there is no visible ghosting. We measure PWM flickering at brightness levels of 30% and below, but the frequency is extremely high at 25 kHz and shouldn't cause any problems.

* ... smaller is better

We use the professional CalMAN software in combination with the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer to measure the display. Already out of the box, the panel is extremely well calibrated, which leaves us a little perplexed. Even with expensive mobile workstations and high-quality multimedia laptops, we have rarely seen anything like this. We can't say at this point whether the factory calibration is similar for retail units.

At least the test device shows the panel's potential. There is no color tint, and all color deviations are well below the important mark of 3. Since the panel completely covers the small sRGB color space, the MagicBook Pro is, therefore, also suitable for editing images and videos. Our own calibration can only improve performance minimally.

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
25.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 11.6 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 48 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
37.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18.8 ms rise
↘ 18.8 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. » 39 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (37.6 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 detected 25250 Hz ≤ 30 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 25250 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 30 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 25250 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21103 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoors, the matte panel performs well, but it lacks the brightness to work comfortably in very bright environments. A place in the shade is recommended here. Furthermore, the viewing-angle stability of the IPS panel is good.

Performance - MagicBook Pro powered by AMD Ryzen

On Honor (and also Huawei) AMD-based laptops, there's an additional performance setting in the preinstalled PC Manager application. In addition to the "Standard Mode", there's also a "Performance Mode". This setting is independent of the regular Windows performance setting. We have conducted the following benchmarks and measurements under the default Standard Mode, but we'll also take a look at some of the effects of the optional Performance Mode.

Processor - Honor chooses an AMD Ryzen H CPU

The heart of the MagicBook Pro is a current AMD processor of the 45-watt class. The Ryzen 5 4600H is equipped with six Zen 2 cores that can process 12 threads and clock at a maximum of 4 GHz. Further technical information on the CPU is available here.

Honor configures the TDP at 52 watts (short-term) and 42 watts for longer loads. This is sufficient for 6x 4.0 or 6x 3.7 GHz, respectively. Performance stabilizes after a few passes, but the performance drop is hardly worth mentioning.

In our comparison group, the MagicBook Pro is clearly ahead of the competition. Since AMD has by now been able to close the gap to Intel in single-core performance as well, the AMD processor can definitely be recommended. For comparison: The MagicBook Pro is on par with the Intel Core i7-10875H octa-core processor found in the Dell XPS 17, which is three times as expensive.

The TDP is limited to 35 watts on battery power, which is still sufficient for 6x 3.5 GHz. As a result, performance is about 15% lower in the Cinebench R15 Multi test.

The optional Performance Mode increases the TDP limits by approximately 3 watts, respectively, but this doesn't have a noticeable effect on performance.

Storage

The exchangeable M.2 2280 SSD
The exchangeable M.2 2280 SSD

Honor has installed a fast PCIe SSD in the M.2 2280 form factor that can also be replaced. In our test device, it comes from Western Digital (SN730) and offers a storage capacity of 512 GB. As with other Honor/Huawei laptops, the SSD is split into two drives out of the box, which is neither optimal nor really necessary in our opinion. Furthermore, only 76.1 GB is available on the system drive (C:); the remaining 341 GB is made available on the D: drive. So if you're not careful and install a lot of programs or games, you will quickly have storage space problems. There are no issues with the speed of the NVMe SSD, though.

Graphics card

GPU-Z Radeon RX Vega 6
GPU-Z Radeon RX Vega 6

The AMD processor is equipped with the Radeon RX Vega 6 integrated GPU, which has a significantly higher core clock speed (1,500 vs. 1,100 MHz) compared to older Vega 6 iGPUs. Memory operates in a dual-channel configuration, but it only provides a speed of 2,666 MHz. With faster RAM, the performance of the iGPU could be increased a bit more.

In terms of performance, the Vega 6 can somewhat stand out from the other Vega 6 iGPUs in our database, which are, however, also combined with slower ULV processors. The Nvidia GeForce MX250 is still a bit faster, and the MX350 is quicker by 30% to 50%. Compared to Intel's iGPUs, the Iris Plus Graphics G7 (Ice Lake) is clearly beaten, but Intel's new Iris Xe Graphics G7 (Tiger Lake) is even able to position itself ahead of the MX350.

The iGPU's performance remains stable even under prolonged load, passing the demanding 3DMark Time Spy stress test at 99.4% without any problems.

The optional Performance Mode has no effect on graphics performance, and the full performance is also available on battery power.

Gaming performance

The performance of the iGPU is good, but the MagicBook Pro is naturally not a gaming laptop. However, many modern titles run smoothly at least on low details, and especially older or less demanding games (such as DOTA 2) still run very well even on higher details.

Emissions - High-frequency fans

Noise emissions

Cooling with two fans
Cooling with two fans

The two fans are probably the biggest weak point of the MagicBook Pro, since they produce a rather high-frequency noise under load, which is quite annoying. That's why they seem to be louder than the readings would suggest. Fortunately, this is only a problem when you're either playing videogames or the system is otherwise under heavy load. Short load peaks aren't enough to get the fans running. In Performance Mode, the two fans become significantly louder (almost 40 dB(A)), though.

For everyday tasks (writing emails, surfing the Internet, playing videos), the fans are actually always deactivated. We couldn't detect any other bothersome noises.

Temperature

Stress test
Stress test

The metal case gets noticeably warm under load, and especially on the bottom, we can measure almost 50 °C (~122 °F) at one point. Therefore, you shouldn't place the device on your lap when it's under heavy load. The middle and left areas of the keyboard also heat up noticeably in this scenario, but there are no restrictions in terms of usage. The 65-watt power adapter reaches a temperature of almost 60 °C (~140 °F) under load, though.

In our synthetic stress test with combined CPU and GPU load, the TDP quickly settles at 35 watts. The processor then still runs at 2.9-3.0 GHz, and the graphics card at 930 MHz. We couldn't detect any reduction in performance directly after the stress test.

The optional Performance Mode has no effect on performance in the stress test, since the TDP quickly settles at 35 watts here as well.

Speakers

The two speakers are located next to the keyboard, so the sound can be targeted directly at the user. However, there was much more potential left unexploited here, because the two modules don't sound very good. Sound seems pretty weak, and neither videos nor music are actually fun to listen to. Without a doubt, quality is naturally sufficient for some Internet radio and normal YouTube videos, but other manufacturers simply offer more here.

Energy management - MagicBook with good endurance

Energy consumption

Our consumption measurements show no big surprises. The idle values are within our comparison group on average. Some devices are even more energy-efficient, but they are often equipped with slower ULV processors. The keyboard backlighting is quite energy-efficient, because even at the highest level, it only increases consumption by 0.6 watts. The maximum power consumption under full load is 67 watts and settles at around 60 watts during the course of stress test.

Battery life

Inside the MagicBook Pro is a 56 Wh battery that provides decent runtimes. At an adjusted brightness of 150 cd/m² (this corresponds to 50% of the maximum brightness on our test device), our video test runs for about 10.5 hours, and the WLAN test even runs for a bit over 10 hours. If we maximize the brightness, the WLAN test still results in a good runtime of about 7.5 hours.

Verdict - Honor's multimedia laptop gets a lot right

In review: Honor MagicBook Pro. Test device provided by Honor Germany.
In review: Honor MagicBook Pro. Test device provided by Honor Germany.

With the MagicBook Pro, Honor does a lot of things right. It's a good multimedia laptop with a solid aluminum case, a decent matt display, and enough power for all common multimedia tasks. So, if you're looking for a true all-rounder, you can pull the trigger on this one without hesitation.

We can't find any real weak points that would discourage a purchase. The fans are certainly the biggest point of criticism, as they produce a rather high-frequency noise at higher speeds. In practice, however, this will play a role rather rarely, since the two fans are almost always deactivated during normal tasks, and even short load peaks can be bypassed without fan activity.

In comparison to more expensive devices like the Dell XPS 15, you have to do without Thunderbolt 3, but through the implementation of normal USB-A ports and an HDMI output, you can manage without an adapter in everyday life.

For around 900 Euros (~$1,054), the MagicBook Pro is a proper recommendation if you're looking for a solid multimedia laptop without big gaming ambitions. There are indeed better alternatives when it comes to individual areas, but the overall package and especially the price-performance ratio are convincing.

Apart from the somewhat annoying fans under load, there are also other minor drawbacks like the mediocre speakers, for example. The position of the webcam isn't optimal either, and the additional Performance Mode in Honor's PC Manager app doesn't add much except for even louder fans. But these are, all in all, only minor details that hardly take away from the good overall impression.

I grew up with modern consumer electronics and my first computer was a Commodore C64, which encouraged my interest in building my own systems. I started working as a review editor for Notebookcheck during my dual studies at Siemens. Currently, I am mainly responsible for dealing with business laptops and mobile workstations. It’s a great experience to be able to review the latest devices and technologies and then compare them with each other.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
