Android version and market relevance

In October 2018 Honor company introduced its new smartphone Honor Magic 2. This is a new model with support for two SIM cards, which is running on 9 Pie.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 9 Pie already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

6.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Honor Magic 2. It also stands out from other models on the market with its thin bezels between the outer edges of the body and the screen. An edge-to-edge screen covers from 80% to 90% of the front panel.. Body thickness 8.3 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 3 500 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — huge smartphone with very thick case and average battery.

This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Honor Magic 2 has a very good camera with multiple lenses (triple camera smartphones): 16 MP with a regular lens + 16 MP with a regular lens + 24 MP B/W. Thanks to this smartphone can safely be called one of the best cameraphones. In addition to the main camera, which is very important, it is also worth paying attention to the quality of the pictures from the front camera. And here at this model the front-seat camera has multiple modules: 16 MP Wide + 2 MP Depth sensor + 2 MP Depth sensor, which is very good. And to appreciate the quality of this camera, look at examples of photos and videos taken with it. There is one more feature in the body of this model, which is associated with the front camera. This camera is located inside the body, and slides out of the body when you turn on the front camera mode. Few smartphones received this feature, and therefore we decided to collect all all smartphones with a pop up selfie camera on special page in the catalog.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Honor Magic 2 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset HiSilicon Kirin 980. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 6 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 8 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications only on the built-in smartphone memory, because the support for memory cards is not implemented here. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 128/256 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Honor Magic 2: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then Honor Magic 2 is just what you need. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is just the real phablet! You can buy! If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is exactly what you were looking for. Do not pass by Honor Magic 2, you should like it.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Honor Magic 2 will begin in November 2018 at a price of $550. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
