Reviews for the Honor X5 Plus
Out of the box, the Honor X5 Plus comes with MagicOS 7.1 based on Android 13. MagicOS itself is quite good, but due to the phone’s relatively slow performance, the UI navigation feels sluggish. It lacks the responsiveness you might find in, for example, the Redmi 12C. Nonetheless, MagicOS offers a range of features, including customization. The Yoyo suggestion on the home screen intelligently recommends frequently used apps, which I found helpful. Additionally, you can take a screenshot by tapping the screen twice or capture a partial screenshot by circling with your knuckle. Accessing multi-window by swiping from the edge and pausing works well, and you can change app icons and themes from the settings. One notable missing feature is that when adjusting the volume using the buttons, it only controls one type of volume, primarily media control, which handles music, videos, and games by default.
