Honor Magic 2 review | Trusted Reviews


Honor Magic 2 review, features, price and early review: Honor's latest China-only flagship have some fancy features. But do they all work?

Solid battery life ; Bold notch-free screen ; Powerful

Finicky fingerprint scanner ; No headphone jack ; Packed full of unwanted software

A clever alternative to a phone with a notch, but not the best option at the price.

Honor Magic 2 review


Display packed ; Decent camera setup

A little heavy ; No headphone jack ; Gaming performance not as good as the OnePlus 6T’s

The Magic 2 is quirky but it's not for everyone, and the software is a pain, but it shows you what a notch-free future looks like

Honor Magic 2 review: A nostalgic sliding phone with ultra-modern internals – and no notch


The Magic 2's clever sliding mechanism eliminates the display notch

Retro sliding mechanism ; Superb performance ; Impressive battery life

No official UK supplier ; No water-resistance, nor headphone jack ; Uninspiring camera

Even so, Honor deserves praise for taking a creative leap, and the end product is one that we’re happy to recommend – although if you don’t demand best-in-class performance, and aren’t interested in the sliding mechanism, you should consider the...

Honor Magic 2


Want a slider phone with six cameras, 45W super charging, a Kirin 980 processor, and an in-display fingerprint scanner? You might want the Honor Magic 2 - but you'll have to get one from China.

Honor Magic 2 Smartphone Review


The Magic Phone. Unfortunately, Honor does not officially sell or distribute the Honor 2 in Europe. Officially, Honor claims that the intelligence built into the Magic 2 was designed to make life easier for the Chinese, and it would not work at all in...

full-view display ; triple-camera setup ; plenty of storage ; plenty of RAM ; dual SIM, dual VoLTE ; modern, sleek design

not officially available outside of China ; lacks Play Store and international keyboard layouts ex-factory ; special features unavailable outside of China ; storage not expandable ; heavy

No doubt, Honor’s Magic 2 is a very special smartphone. Its true full view display is going to please anybody who prefers a bezel-less display but dreads the existence of a notch despite the fact that these design abominations are getting smaller and...

Honor Magic 2 Review: enchanting but mildly disappointing


The quest for “edge to edge” bezel-less screens have forced smartphone makers to search for solutions to a problem of their own making. Unless you completely ignore it the way Samsung does (at least for now), there is no escaping the notch, a.k.a. the...

Gorgeous all-screen display ; High-end flagship performance ; Impressive battery life ; Reliable cameras ; Addictive fidget toy

No water resistance, 3.5mm jack, wireless charging ; Bloated default experience ; Limited options for slider trigger
