Honor Magic Vs evaluation – exams


Foldables out of China are going international left and proper, aiming to problem Samsung’s dominance within the subject, and the Honor Magic Vs is the most recent to make its worldwide debut. A second-gen foldable from Honor, the Magic Vs builds on the V from final yr, including refinement to the shifting bits, enhancing the digicam system, and tweaking the shows and battery.

Honor Magic Vs review

We had an early have a look at the Magic Vs late final yr, and whereas that unit was prepared for prime time by way of {hardware}, it wasn’t remaining when it got here to software program. This one right here is, so you will be getting the same old check outcomes, together with battery life (spoiler: stable) and digicam samples – we could not check these three months in the past.

The Magic Vs relies on a 7.9-inch foldable OLED show that is nonetheless capped at 90Hz (Samsung’s Z Fold4 can do 120Hz). It is now brighter than the V’s, Honor says, as is the 6.45-inch cowl show, which can refresh at as much as 120Hz.

The folding mechanism is new on the Vs, in comparison with the V, with Honor abandoning gears in favor of a gearless hinge. Decreasing the complexity in addition to the adoption of magnesium and titanium alloys within the construct has made the Vs some 10% lighter than the V – a most welcome improvement. That is with a bigger battery than the older mannequin too – 5,000mAh vs. 4,750mAh.

A few modifications within the digicam system make the Magic Vs a extra succesful cameraphone, we reckon. A telephoto digicam replaces the ‘ultra-spectrum’ 50MP module on the Magic V that we by no means fairly acquired to expertise. It could be a comparatively modest 8MP 3x unit, however some telephoto is healthier than no telephoto. The 54MP major digicam is new for this technology, too, whereas the 50MP ultrawide has been carried over. A few 16MP selfie cameras, one punch gap per show, carry the tally as much as 5 cameras.

The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 ticks contained in the Magic Vs, including a plus over the Magic V’s chipset. And within the months between the preliminary launch in China and the worldwide rollout Honor’s put collectively an Android 13-based construct of Magic UI (the one we had for the hands-on was on Android 12), so it is properly present on the software program entrance.
