The Honor MagicBook 15 has turned out pretty, but offers only mediocre endurance values

Honor MagicBook 15 in review: Ryzen 5 in a stylish suit
Honors' stylish 15.6-incher scores with a slim metal case, a Ryzen 5-APU and memory running in dual-channel mode. The battery life turns out decent, but not outstanding.

The 15.6-inch laptop Honor MagicBook 15 is not unknown to us. It is the identical sister model of the Huawei Matebook D 15, which we have already tested, and the notebook's components are wrapped in a stylish, compact metal chassis. A slim display frame additionally increases the computer's attractiveness. You'll look in vain for a webcam in this frame. It was integrated into the keyboard and can be folded in and out at the touch of a button.

The built-in Ryzen-5-3500U-APU attracts attention with good performance delivery. The integrated Vega-8 GPU allows playing games, whose hardware requirements aren't too high. The APU has access to 8 GB memory (dual channel mode; permanently soldered). An upgrade is impossible due to the lack of memory slots.

An NVMe SSD in M.2-2280 format serves as the system drive. The notebook offers additional space for a 2.5-inch storage medium. Our test device however doesn't allow the installation of such a medium because neither a mounting frame nor an SATA slot is included. The IPS Full HD screen pleases with stable viewing angles, a matte surface, decent color representation and good contrast. The maximum brightness however is too low. The color space coverage does not convince either.

The notebook reaches a runtime of almost exactly six hours with one battery charge in our practical WLAN test (simulates the load when calling up websites). This is a decent, but not an outstanding value. Therefore, the power supply (USB Type-C connector) should be carried along when using the computer on the go. The latter is a universal charger that can also charge the batteries of other devices (Smartphone, Tablet, Powerbank). The charging cable is connected to the charger via a USB Type-C plug.

More information and many benchmark results can be found in our review of the Honor MagicBook 15.
