Short description Honor Magic V

This is a smartphone on Android 12 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 3 modules (50 MP Wide, 50 MP Wide, 50 MP UltraWide), and the front camera here turned out to be very high quality, which can make beautiful selfies. The body of Honor Magic V has received a non-standard form factor: folder (flip phone) with a flexible touch screen. This type of case began to be popular in 2019-2020, this became possible primarily due to the technologies, and, of course, marketers had to justify the inflated expectations of customers for new products. And Honor Magic V has such features: additional small screen with a diagonal 6.45" OLED, a slot for two SIM cards, folding screen (so that the phone body can be folded), cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Versions: Titanium Silver, Black, Burnt Orange.

Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Honor Magic V introduced a company Honor in January 2022. It has Android version 12, which, unfortunately, it will not be possible to update, because the manufacturer did not take care of it. This new smartphone has also received support for high-speed 5G networks so that you can watch very high-quality 4K or even 8K videos on YouTube, play online games and not feel any inconvenience associated with the slow speed of mobile Internet.

Well, what can I say, Honor Magic V is a smartphone of 2022 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Screen, body and battery

Please note that the body of the smartphone has a flip-shape form. Yes, we were not mistaken. Honor Magic V is really a flip smartphone on Android. This feature of the body affects many other parameters of this model. Here is a list of the most important:

  • The diagonal of the main screen in the open position can be doubled, because the screen is flexible (see the catalog for all smartphones with flexible screens);
  • The smartphone has an additional 6.45-inch OLED-screen, which you need when the flip body is folded (all smartphones with two screens are also collected in our catalog);
  • Higher battery capacity because there is more physical space for the battery;
  • The weight of the device has become one and a half or even two times more than that of similar models;
  • The main camera can be used as a selfie camera, so you get better quality portrait photos;
  • And, of course, the high price of this model, because the cost of manufacturing technology for smartphones with flexible screens is still very high.;
  • But, the undoubted plus of such a flip smartphone is the uniqueness and interest of the friends, colleagues and partners around you, perhaps even some special status.

We advise you to immediately watch the video reviews and photos from real life of this smartphone. All promotional materials from the manufacturer will only show the pros of this flip smartphone. But with its high price, you need to find out both the pros and cons of this model before buying. Now let’s move on to describing other important characteristics in more detail.

In the case Honor Magic V thickness 6.7 mm is placed battery for 4 750 mAh and a very large flexible OLED touchscreen with a diagonal 7.9″ and refresh rate 90 Hz. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. The screen is very close to the edges of the case, which also improves the ergonomics of using the phone with one hand.

Main camera and selfie camera

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 42 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment good cameras.

The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 50 MP Wide + 50 MP Wide + 50 MP UltraWide, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment super cool mobile cameras. Directly without hesitation can buy this smartphone and enjoy your photos and videos shot on it. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the Honor Magic V. The smartphone received 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen1 (4 nm). RAM is built-in 12 GB.

But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 256 GB and plus another option for 512 GB. But memory cards, unfortunately, with this smartphone, you can not use, because the manufacturer did not provide for them a slot.

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

Life is fleeting, and the life of a smartphone on the mobile market in general can be compared with the life of a butterfly. And all because the producers of android-smartphones do not always want to support their devices and prefer to release a new model in six months. Therefore, our task is to help you choose the actual smartphone today, which is being sold and will be still relevant for at least the next six months. If Honor Magic V you find among DROID smartphones in our catalog, you can safely buy it now, and if you do not find it, then its better already do not buy.

However, official sales Honor Magic V began in January 2022. The manufacturer said the price of $1580 without taxes and fees. With such a price level on Honor Magic V, we placed it in the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Buy Honor Magic V you can in any store (or on the Internet, or in the electronics supermarket), we just advise you to see live on the smartphone and hold it in your hands before buying.
