Reviews for the Honor MagicBook X 16 2023

Honor MagicBook X 16 hands-on impression: Cheap family fun
Source: Laptop Mag English
All-in-all, to most of you nerds reading this, the Honor MagicBook X 16 is a mixed bag. But for the whole family, this is a solid big screen laptop for productivity and binge watching. There’s enough horsepower for running all your basic needs, and thermal management that keeps everything cool. The keyboard and touchpad could do with some work, and we desperately need a better webcam for those Zoom calls. But at the price you’re paying, this is an admirable effort from Honor. So set your expectations accordingly. As a home-based laptop for the parents and kids alike, this will handily do the job.

60% Honor MagicBook X16 2023 review: Bring ta-dah to your to-dos
Source: It Pro English
Since entering the laptop market in 2018, Honor has made a modest name for itself as a purveyor of cheap and powerful notebooks. In 2022, the MagicBook 16 proved the brand is doing well for itself, following budget brilliance in the form of MagicBook Pro or MagicBook 14. The MagicBook X16 is the latest in this line of low-price business devices and has big shoes to fill. Much like its less-powerful sibling the MagicBook 16, the Honor MagicBook X16 is an attractive if not especially sleek laptop. Visually, it's very similar to a Macbook, with simple curved edges and a brushed-metal look. Up close and personal, the device feels professional and well put together. It's constructed from aluminum alloy, with a thin bezel around the display At 1.75kg, the MagicBook is on the heavy side. It's noticeably heavier than a Macbook Pro, something of an oddity given its comparatively poor performance when it comes to intensive tasks.

Intel UHD Graphics Xe G4 48EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 48 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

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

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


i5-12450H: Alde Lake based mobile CPU with 4 performance cores and 4 efficient cores. The performance cores offer hyper threading, leading to 12 threads that can be processed. The CPU clocks from 1.5 to 4.4 GHz and supports vPro.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


16.00":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

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


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).


73%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
