Suggested April 2024 Honor 50 Lite Review: Light With Little Might


66W Supercharge

Large screen

Good battery life

Decent main camera



No 5G

No waterproofing

60Hz screen

Our Verdict

The Honor 50 Lite falls short in storage, lack of waterproofing and 5G it makes up for in its impressive battery life, charging and style.

Honor has managed to make a strong first impression after parting ways with Huawei and the launch of its 50 range. Even if we are yet to really see what the company can do on its own.

The 50 Lite, while similar in many aspects to the flagship Honor 50, has noticeable differences right out of the gate such as its larger – though less impressive – centrally aligned camera ring and its lack of curved OLED display. 

But where the 50 Lite has its shortcomings it makes up for with a number of other features that will appeal to any Android user looking for moderate use on a single charge. The 50 Lite’s battery and charging capabilities are particularly noteworthy as is its large display, particularly for the asking price. 

Design & Build



No waterproofing

The ‘Lite’ suffix on this newer model certainly doesn’t refer to the phone’s weight and slimness. 

It comes in moderately heavier (192g) and less slim (8.5mm) than the Honor 50 but with a larger screen this tradeoff makes sense. 

It fits comfortably in the hand without a case and these larger dimensions give it a sense of depth without feeling unwieldy. However the 50 Lite’s reflective rear may make some users want to throw on a case if fingerprints are a big concern for them. 

Of those designs comes three colours to choose from: Midnight Black, Space Silver and Deep Sea Blue. I was given the Deep Sea Blue model to test which is by far the most distinctive. 

Its striped finish running down the centre of the rear body feels quite subdued compared to the options available on the Honor 50. It certainly doesn’t cheapen the overall look of the phone but it doesn’t make it stand out either.

Forgoing the dual camera ring design is the most tangible departure. While most slab phone designs have opted to house their camera ring in the topmost corner the 50 Lite’s is firmly rear and centre which, from a distance, gives it the appearance of a traditional point and shoot. 

Screen & Speakers

6.67in LCD

Full HD+

180Hz touch sampling

With a 6.67in screen and narrow bezel, the 50 Lite’s real estate is put to good use. The punch hole camera has also been aligned to the top-left side of the screen which further amplifies this use of space and integrates nicely into the rest of the notification bar. 

Even when watching videos in a 16:9 widescreen ratio, the camera sits enough out of view not to take up any of the viewable screen. Anything viewed in a higher aspect ratio however such as 21:9 cinemascope will make the camera noticeable on videos when viewed in full screen, however. 

The LCD display makes good use of the DCI-P3 Wide colour gamut and with a 391ppi, this is a big part of what makes the 50 Lite’s battery as efficient as it is. While an OLED display would have been preferable for a screen of this size it’s an understandable omission. 

What we would expect these days is a higher refresh rate than the traditional 60Hz. Many rivals have 90- or even 120Hz for a similar or lower price.

The touch sampling rate comes in remarkably high for a phone at this price at 180Hz and should appeal to anyone hoping to use it for gaming on the go. Games that require fast inputs such as PUBG performed reasonably well in that respect but would serve less demanding games just as well. 

Quite surprisingly, the 50 Lite also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack which should be a welcome addition to anyone with decent headphones. The inbuilt speaker however is less impressive. 

Audio output is noticeably tinny, having lost some of its lower frequencies as a result of relegating sound output to a single speaker on the bottom right-hand portion of the phone. This will no doubt make the prospect of headphones more appealing for listening to music and podcasts. 

Specs & Performance

Snapdragon 662

Up to 8GB RAM

128GB storage

There are two models of the 50 Lite to choose from with either 6- or 8GB of ram, both with a storage size of 128GB. 

There is no microSD slot included so the internal storage capacity may fall short of people’s requirements, especially if they are transferring apps, photos and other files from a previous handset. 

The Honor 50 Lite houses a Snapdragon 662 which can also be found in cheaper and ageing phones such as the Redmi 9 and Moto G9 Power. Note that the mid-range Snapdragon 662 from Qualcomm does not support 5G networks so you will need to look elsewhere if this is important – the Redmi Note 9T, for example.

According to the Geekbench 5 CPU benchmarking test, the 50 Lite performed just marginally below both of the models outlined above and fell short on the GFX tests. Performance is not the phone’s strong point.


64Mp main camera

8Mp ultrawide

2Mp macro & depth sensors

16Mp selfie

The camera ring is the most visually prominent feature on the handset and arguably the Honor 50’s second-biggest selling point. 

While the Honor 50 has two separate camera rings, one for its 108Mp main and one for the rest, the 50 Lite houses all four main cameras in a single wheel. The main camera has seen a significant downgrade to 64Mp while the other three cameras have maintained the same specs as the Honor 50. 

64Mp cameras have become a standard feature of budget to mid-range smartphones and this is no exception. For the majority of users who are looking for simplicity over versatility, The main camera on offer here can capture a great deal.

It fairs well in many shooting conditions, particularly in low lighting thanks to its dark mode feature, and users will have no issue taking photos with depth thanks to its low aperture. It’s limited to 8x zoom, however, and even before the 4x zoom mark a great deal of picture quality is lost.

The wide-angle lens might offer users plenty of opportunities to take group photos and set up other interesting shots but there is very little reason to use the macro camera.

At only 2Mp, pictures look noisy and the benefits of a macro lens are hard to see. Its presence, along with the depth sensor, feels more like an opportunity for window dressing rather than providing much practical use and the 50 Lite would have greatly benefitted from focusing on their other main cameras. 

With a 16Mp front-facing camera, the 50 Lite also offers serviceable selfies for pictures and video calls with an integrated ‘beauty’ feature that can be adjusted with a slider.

Playing with this setting made the appearance of my skin noticeably brighter and ironed out some wrinkles without being too destructive of the image’s quality but whether it made me ‘beautiful’ is up for debate. 

Battery Life & Charging


66W Supercharge

Adapter included

The biggest talking point for this phone is unquestionably its impressive battery life. With a 4300mAh battery, it certainly has the capacity for moderate use, although we are used to seeing 4500-5000mAh batteries in phones this large.

According to its marketing materials, the Honor 50 Lite can provide up to seven hours of gaming, 16 hours of web browsing or eight hours of video calls. 

This would stand to measure up against my usage. I have gone several days without needing to charge with moderate use and even when gaming, I was particularly impressed with how much charge was left after around two hours. 

Even when the 50 Lite does need to charge it does so quickly. Out of the box, the phone comes with a 66W Honor Supercharge adapter and a USB-A to USB-C cable. Honor claims that this can provide up to 40% charge in 10 minutes and after our 30-minute charging test got up to 98%, this seems to align with that. 


Android 11

Magic UI 4.2

One carry-over from their previous relationship with Huawei is the Magic UI 4.2 operating system which runs on top of Android 11. However new Honor models offer full support for Google Mobile Services which is a great boon and will offer users greater flexibility and options when setting up the phone to their preferences. 

The 50 Lite also comes with an additional suite of pre-installed applications but thankfully bloatware is kept to a minimum.

One notable feature available on the 50 Lite is ebook mode, which adjusts the screen’s colour temperature to the reader’s surroundings. When in use it gives the display a monochrome appearance but it would certainly be useful for anyone who likes to read before bed. 

Price & Availability

According to Honor’s website the phone is available to purchase in Europe, Latin America and EMEA territories with a promised price in the UK of £249. 

You can buy it directly from Honor as well as retailers such as Carphone Warehouse, Currys, Mobiles and Alza.

With that in consideration, the Honor 50 Lite could comfortably be placed as a low-cost smartphone and for anyone looking to use it simply for online browsing, social media and taking quick photos on the go.

At this price, the Honor 50 Lite comes boxed with a 66W charger and USB-C cable, a screen protector and a phone case, which may be of interest to anyone hoping to use the device shortly after purchase at little to no additional cost.

Still, there are a lot of great budget phones around this price such as the Poco X3 Pro and Redmi Note 10 Pro you should consider.

Check out our chart of the best budget phones to see more options. 


The 50 Lite has a build quality that could be expected from larger models both at a glance and in hand. It’s difficult to fault Honor for some of the design choices it has made with this build and the few faults it does have can be easy to overlook. 

The main camera will provide adequate use for simple, hands-on photography but the increasing trend of quantity over quality when it comes to camera rings has let Honor down in this respect.

While it can be outperformed against competing models at a similar price point, the 50 Lite is a commendable effort to bring Honor’s emphasis on full Android support to its devices since parting from Huawei. 

This is helped in part by its large display. Anyone hoping to find a ‘large’ phone at a markedly lower price point will find plenty to like here. Combine this with a battery that can keep up with heavy use most users will immediately reap the benefits straight out of the box.

Akitio Node Lite With Optane Review: In

Design and features

If you don’t have Thunderbolt 3 on your PC, you should be jealous. PCIe over a wire (that’s Thunderbolt in a nutshell) can be handy for all sorts of things, such as adding a super fast NVMe drive to your system, or an external GPU. I only mention the latter, because Akitio specifically warns that the Node Lite, though fully rigged with an x16 PCIe slot, is not suitable for that purpose—it’s too small and underpowered for a full-sized graphics card. For eGPU use, you want the full-on Node.


Note that the 905P’s lighting is blue. We like the combo, but if clashing colors bug you…. 

There is a plain brushed-metal version of the Node Lite, but this one is a special design in bright fire-engine (or Corvette) red for deep-pocketed enthusiasts. It shows off the LED lighting on the Intel 905P via a window on its left side. If you need to know more about Intel’s uber-fast, super enduring and super pricey x4 PCIe card 905P NVMe SSD, you can read about it here.

Mentioned in this article

Intel Optane SSD 905P

Read our review

The enclosure uses captive thumbscrews to secure the cover, which slides forward and off. It tends to get hung up slightly unless you jiggle it a little.

On the back of the chassis are two Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, a full-sized DisplayPort connector, and the AC jack. There’s no power switch: The enclosure will automatically turn on or off when it senses current, or lack thereof, on the Thunderbolt bus.  


Two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a single full-sized DisplayPort port, and the power jack adorn the back of the Node Lite.

Inside is the aforementioned single full-length x16 PCIe slot. It’s nice that that the box accepts x16 cards, but Thunderbolt only supplies 4 lanes and we know of no mainstream NVMe drive that uses more than that.


I tested the Node Lite (blue bars) alongside a similar product from HighPoint, the 6661A. I “borrowed” the 905P for the latter, in addition to testing it internally in our storage test bed. The 905P was a bit slower in the enclosures than the drive in the test bed, but the performance of the two enclosures was so close that you can safely ignore it in your purchase decision.


The HighPoint 6661A was faster than the Node Lite (blue bars) in several CrystalDiskMark 6 tests, but the differences aren’t noticeable in the real world. Still…Longer bars are better.

USB 3.1 Gen 2 SATA seek times, as shown below, aren’t slow. In fact, they’re lightning-like (see what I did there?) compared to hard drives, but Thunderbolt 3/NVMe’s are even quicker.


You don’t lose a lot of NVMe’s fantastic seek times by using Thunderbolt 3. Shorter bars are better. 


The Node Lite (blue bars) was faster in some tests, slower in others, but the differences were minute. Shorter bars are better.

In terms of performance, the Node Lite and the 6661A are a pick-‘em. Both are easily fast enough that you could run your operating system from them and never notice the difference from an internal NVMe drive. Fast enough, in fact, that your backups might be over before you realize they’ve started. 


Why the low write number on our 2023 Macbook Pro, we can’t tell you, but the Node Lite is still very fast.

I also tested the Node Lite with Optane on a 2023 Macbook Pro. It performed well, though we’ve seen higher write numbers. Intel’s drives have had mild conflicts with Macs before. See my article on NVMe over Thunderbolt in Macworld.

Note that you don’t need to pay $1,500 for this type of performance, Samsung’s 970 Pro (available via Amazon and reviewed here) and 970 EVO (available on Amazon and reviewed here), as well as WD’s Black NVMe (available on Amazon and reviewed here) are all viable, as well as far less expensive alternatives. You’ll get the same kind of throughput, though slightly slower seeks and performance with smaller files. 


On the other hand, the plain Node Lite, and especially the 6661A with a cheaper drive inside, are more within reach of the average user. 

Review Del Honor Magic 5 Pro


Una de las mejores pantallas

Excelente duración de la batería

Cámara triple muy potente


Software mejorable

Rendimiento desigual

Nuestro veredicto

El Magic 5 Pro es un buque insignia con todas las funciones de un gama alta, capaz de igualar a la mayoría de sus rivales en calidad de pantalla, duración de la batería e incluso en el rendimiento de la cámara. Sin embargo, a Honor aún le quedan elementos que pulir, sobre todo en el lado del software.

Honor, que en su día fue la submarca económica de Huawei, es ahora toda una potencia independiente. Y esa independencia le ha permitido pasar de la gama media a la venta de sus propios móviles gama alta.

Este año, la empresa ya ha lanzado el Magic Vs, un rival global bastante especial que pretende competir con los plegables de Samsung. Sin embargo, el Magic 5 Pro es un móvil un poco más tradicional: una gran losa de cristal con unas cámaras muy potentes en la parte trasera (tendencia que hemos visto en los gama alta los últimos años).

Pero, ¿hasta qué punto este móvil ofrece la calidad y potencia adecuadas como para tentar a los y las compradoras de móviles Samsung, Google y Apple?

Te cuento mi experiencia usando el Honor Magic 5 Pro.

Diseño y calidad de construcción

Grande, pero sorprendentemente fino

Resistencia al agua IP68

Módulo de cámara circular llamativo

El Magic 5 Pro se ajusta cómodamente a las tendencias de diseño de los teléfonos insignia modernos: una enorme losa de cristal curvado y metal con un módulo de cámara redondo y extravagantemente grande en la parte trasera.

Este móvil busca algo de atención”

La pantalla de 6,81 pulgadas es la razón principal por la que el teléfono es tan grande, y sus 219 gramos de peso hacen que pese también bastante. Para ser justos con Honor, solo tiene 8,8 mm de grosor, lo que lo hace más esbelto que otros teléfonos de gran tamaño y, en consecuencia, un poco más cómodo de sostener.

Las cámaras son el elemento más llamativo, en ambos lados. En la parte delantera, Honor sigue siendo la única compañía que incluye un sensor de profundidad junto a la cámara selfie, creando un recorte en forma de píldora similar al del iPhone, aunque aquí está escondido en una esquina en lugar de en el centro.

En la parte trasera encontramos una enorme cámara circular dominada por sus tres lentes, a las que se une el cuerpo principal ligeramente inclinado hacia arriba. Esto es especialmente llamativo en el modelo verde, donde las lentes negras sobresalen del cuerpo en un triángulo distintivo. No es sutil, pero está claro que no lo intenta: es un teléfono que quiere llamar la atención.

Dominic Preston / Foundry

Yo he probado el modelo Meadow Green, con un ligero brillo en su acabado de cristal mate, aunque también hay disponible un modelo negro más brillante. Los acabados azul, morado y naranja también se han lanzado en China, pero es poco probable que estén disponibles en otros países.

Una desventaja es que Honor no ha hecho ninguna afirmación sobre el uso de Gorilla Glass u otras alternativas reforzadas para proteger el teléfono de daños, aunque un protector de pantalla preaplicado ayudará a salvar la pantalla. No obstante, el teléfono cuenta con la certificación IP68, por lo que debería estar a salvo del polvo y el agua.

Pantalla y altavoces

OLED curva cuádruple de 6,81 pulgadas y 1-120 Hz

Énfasis en la comodidad ocular

Altavoces estéreo ligeramente insípidos

Si nos guiamos por el marketing de Honor, el Magic 5 Pro tiene dos puntos fuertes clave, y la pantalla es uno de ellos.

Se puede ver de dónde viene la empresa, ya que realmente ha tirado todo menos el fregadero de la cocina aquí.

Dominic Preston / Foundry

El gran panel de 6,81 es un OLED (por supuesto) que utiliza la última tecnología LTPO para escalar la frecuencia de refresco de 1-120 Hz sobre la marcha, ofreciendo una fluidez sedosa y una duración optimizada de la batería.

La pantalla está curvada en los cuatro bordes para ofrecer un aspecto simétrico y una sensación de comodidad. Incorpora una alta resolución de 1312×2848 y un chipset de pantalla específico que contribuye a su impresionante precisión cromática y compatibilidad con HDR10+.

¿Es esta la mejor pantalla en cualquier teléfono en este momento?”

Pero eso no es todo. Honor también ha apostado fuerte por las funciones de salud ocular, prometiendo que esta pantalla es una de las mejores para un uso cómodo a largo plazo. La tecnología de atenuación dinámica, la certificación circadiana y la reducción del parpadeo de la pantalla se combinan supuestamente para cuidar tu visión y tu ciclo de sueño.

Dominic Preston / Foundry

En una semana con el teléfono, no puedo decir que haya notado ninguna diferencia en particular, así que tendré que creer en la palabra de Honor de que mis ojos me lo agradecerán. Al menos puedo confirmar que el panel se ve genial: es brillante, colorido y nítido, con un contraste profundo y una suavidad incontenible.

¿Es la mejor pantalla de cualquier teléfono ahora mismo? No lo sé. Pero sin duda debería estar en la conversación.

Por desgracia, no puedo decir lo mismo de los altavoces. La configuración estéreo no está mal, pero dista mucho de ser una característica sobresaliente, y es muy pequeña para los estándares de un teléfono insignia. Cumplirá su función en caso de apuro, sobre todo para ver un poco de YouTube o Netflix en la cama, pero no esperes sorprenderte.

Especificaciones y rendimiento

Último chip Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

Un poco por detrás de otros buques insignia en los benchmarks

Mucha RAM y almacenamiento

El Magic 5 Pro está equipado con el Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, el chipset más rápido del momento para teléfonos Android. Honor lo combina con unos generosos 12 GB de RAM y 512 GB de almacenamiento en la única versión del teléfono que se lanzará internacionalmente.

Como era de esperar, el teléfono es rápido. Es capaz de hacer frente a la multitarea, a los juegos más exigentes y a casi todo lo que le eches.

En segundo lugar, en las pruebas de rendimiento artificial, el Magic 5 Pro va claramente un poco por detrás de cualquier otro teléfono 8 Gen 2 que hayamos probado, lo que sugiere que Honor tiene que trabajar un poco en la optimización. Para la mayoría de la gente este tipo de diferencia no importa, pero si eres un jugador o un usuario avanzado que quiere llevar su teléfono al límite, parece que otros fabricantes están llevando los chips de Qualcomm un poco más lejos y más rápido.

En cuanto a la conectividad, el teléfono, por supuesto, es compatible con 5G, junto con Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 y NFC.

La biometría incluye desbloqueo facial usando la cámara selfie, o un confiable escáner de huellas dactilares integrado en la pantalla.

Vídeo y cámara

Triple cámara trasera de 50 MP

Cámara selfie única – con un sensor de profundidad extra

Dominic Preston / Foundry

Las especificaciones tan completas de la pantalla del Magic 5 Pro están más o menos a la altura de lo que ofrece en el departamento de cámaras, con una triple cámara trasera compuesta en su totalidad por lentes de 50 MP.

La cámara principal utiliza un gran sensor de 1/1,12 pulgadas, no tan grande como el sensor IMX989 que ha aparecido este año en el Vivo X90 Pro, el Oppo Find X6 Pro y el Xiaomi 13 Pro, pero no muy lejos.

Está emparejado con una rápida apertura de f/1,6 y estabilización óptica de imagen (OIS), y esa combinación significa que es capaz de capturar una cantidad impresionante de luz, lo que es clave para todas las fotografías, pero especialmente con poca luz, donde el 5 Pro consigue preservar tanto el detalle como una gama de colores natural -una lucha incluso para las mejores cámaras de teléfono en condiciones de poca luz.

He tomado fotos nítidas y llenas de fuerza en todo tipo de condiciones de iluminación con esta cámara principal y, lo cierto, es que me han impresionado los resultados. Los colores se inclinan un poco hacia el extremo saturado de la escala, pero no de forma agresiva, y el excelente rango dinámico significa que el Magic 5 Pro puede capturar hermosas sombras y luces mixtas.

A la lente principal se une una gran angular de 50 MP, que utiliza un sensor más pequeño y una apertura f/2.0 ligeramente más lenta, aunque de hecho sigue siendo más rápida que la media para una lente de esta anchura.

Las fotos no están a la altura de la cámara principal. Los colores son más apagados, y las fotos salen en general un tono o dos más oscuras de lo que cabría esperar, con un claro descenso del rango dinámico que hace que las sombras y los puntos oscuros carezcan de detalle. Sin estabilización óptica, es el único de los tres objetivos que tiene problemas en la oscuridad. En general, no está mal, pero esperaba algo mejor.

He hecho fotos nítidas y llenas de fuerza en todo tipo de condiciones de luz…”

Por último, un objetivo periscopio con zoom 3,5x viene equipado con una abertura f/3,0 y OIS. Se trata de un zoom un poco a medio camino: más corto que muchos otros periscopios, pero demasiado largo para utilizarlo cómodamente para retratos o similares.

Aun así, una vez que te haces con las distancias, las fotos son impresionantes. Con la distancia focal predeterminada de 3,5 aumentos, las fotos son detalladas y están bien expuestas, incluso con poca luz o en condiciones difíciles. Incluso se puede aumentar el zoom hasta 10 aumentos sin que la calidad disminuya demasiado, aunque yo no me fiaría mucho.

En la parte frontal se encuentra la cámara dual para selfies, aunque, una vez más, solo hay una cámara real, con un sensor de profundidad de tiempo de vuelo al lado. Curiosamente, Honor ofrece tres opciones de zoom por defecto aquí: 0,7x, 0,8x, y regular, aunque los dos últimos son presumiblemente sólo cultivos en el sensor.

Sus 12 MP no lo hacen mal, incluso haciendo un trabajo aceptable de la exposición dividida para mis fotos tomadas desde mi balcón en la luz brillante, mirando hacia atrás en mi sala de estar mucho más oscuro. El sensor ToF (lo que permite el desenfoque del fondo) también se luce en el modo retrato, con un bokeh de aspecto natural gracias a una detección de bordes francamente excelente, que sólo difumina erróneamente uno o dos pelos sueltos. Es un teléfono estupendo para los selfies.

Por último, tema vídeo. Puedes grabar hasta en 4K y 30fps desde la cámara frontal, saltando hasta 4K y 60fps en la trasera. No hay opción 8K, pero sospecho que a pocos usuarios y usuarias les importará.

Una rareza es que no hay absolutamente ninguna opción para utilizar la cámara gran angular de la parte trasera para grabar vídeo. Es de suponer que Honor tomó esa decisión porque, sin OIS, los resultados no serían tan estables como con las otras lentes. Es cierto, pero resulta extraño no dar a los usuarios ninguna opción al respecto, lo que significará que a veces las opciones de encuadre serán inusualmente limitadas.

Batería y carga

Duración de la batería de 1-2 días

Carga rápida

También inalámbrica

La batería de 5100mAh del Magic 5 Pro es una de las más grandes que puedes encontrar en cualquier móvil hoy en día, y la buena noticia es que se nota.

Una puntuación de 11 horas y 44 minutos en la prueba de batería PCMark es fuerte para un teléfono insignia, pero más impresionante es que el teléfono funcionará cómodamente durante un día completo y, a menudo, durante un segundo.

Me he acostumbrado a irme a la cama con hasta un 70 % de batería restante, y en una ocasión incluso me quedaba un 30 % al final del segundo. Eso fue con un uso relativamente ligero para mis estándares, pero estoy seguro de que incluso los y las usuarias más exigentes encontrarán en éste un teléfono para todo el día.

Dominic Preston / Foundry

Cuando necesites recargarla, la carga de 66 W es suficientemente rápida, aunque no batirá ningún récord. En mi prueba, recuperó el 75 % de la batería en media hora, y en menos de una hora estará a tope, así que al menos es lo bastante rápida como para evitarte tener que cargar durante la noche.

Incluso los usuarios más exigentes lo encontrarán un teléfono para todo el día”

Solo puedes alcanzar los 50 W de velocidad de carga inalámbrica con el cargador oficial de Honor, que se vende por separado por 85 €. Si te parece demasiado caro, se cargará a menor velocidad con cualquier cargador inalámbrico con certificación Qi que tengas a mano, y si aún no tienes uno, cuestan muchísimo menos que el de Honor.ç

Software y actualizaciones

Viene con Android 13

Funciona con el tosco MagicOS de Honor

Se prometen tres actualizaciones del sistema operativo Android

El Magic 5 Pro se entrega con Android 13, la última versión del sistema operativo, con la skin MagicOS de Honor.

No me encanta MagicOS, que me parece recargado y tosco en comparación con el software de los teléfonos de la competencia. También sospecho que la piel del software es la culpable de los problemas de rendimiento que tuve en algunas aplicaciones específicas, mencionadas anteriormente.

Dominic Preston / Foundry

También hay que lidiar con un poco de bloatware. Honor preinstala aplicaciones que van desde TikTok y Netflix hasta opciones menos conocidas como TrainPal y WPS Office. Incluso incluye las aplicaciones de chúng tôi y chúng tôi lo que supone un doble golpe de opciones de vacaciones no deseadas.

A su favor, la compañía al menos ofrece una saludable mezcla de su propio software y las opciones de Google cuando se trata de aplicaciones básicas – se espera que utilice el calendario y la calculadora de Honor, pero la mensajería, el correo electrónico y otros elementos básicos son de Google por defecto.

Por alguna razón, Honor también ha añadido algunos controles gestuales con el Magic 5 Pro, que te permiten desplazarte o hacer capturas de pantalla agitando la mano en el aire delante del teléfono. Son una porquería y, por suerte, vienen desactivados por defecto. No te molestes en activarlos.

Dominic Preston / Foundry

Para terminar con una nota optimista, Honor ha prometido que el teléfono recibirá tres actualizaciones del sistema operativo Android, es decir, a Android 14, probablemente a finales de este año, y finalmente a Android 16, además de cinco años completos de parches de seguridad. No es el mejor soporte de software para un teléfono Android, pero está cerca, y garantiza cierta longevidad si te haces con un Magic 5 Pro.

Precio y disponibilidad

El Magic 5 Pro ya está disponible para pedidos en España (todavía no está disponible en América Latina). Puedes comprarlo por 1.200 € en la web oficial de Honor, disponible en negro y verde. Está también disponible en Amazon España por el mismo precio.

Dominic Preston / Foundry

Ese precio se sitúa firmemente en el territorio de los gama alta, aunque no llega a los modelos de nivel superior absoluto como el Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra o el iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Sus competidores más probables son el Galaxy S23+, el iPhone 14 y el Google Pixel 7 Pro. El Honor supera al resto en duración de la batería y calidad de la pantalla, y se mantiene firme en el departamento de la cámara, lo que lo convierte en un competidor sorprendentemente capaz en la gama alta del mercado.

Echa un vistazo a nuestra selección completa de los mejores smartphones del momento para ver más opciones, o a los mejores móviles Honor para ver qué más ofrece la compañía.


El Magic 5 Pro es un excelente regreso de Honor, y una señal de que la forma de buque insignia que encontró en el Magic 4 Pro del año pasado no fue casualidad.

La pantalla y la duración de la batería de este teléfono pueden competir con los mejores, y la cámara hace lo suficiente para ganarse un lugar en esa conversación también.

Es extraño que el rendimiento se quede un poco frío en comparación con otros buques insignia de 2023, y he de admitir que el llamativo diseño no me acaba de convencer.

Sin embargo, lo que más debería preocuparte es el software, ya que MagicOS es una versión aceptable pero poco inspiradora de Android. Cumple con su cometido, pero los grandes rivales de Honor aún ofrecen más cuando se trata de pulido puro.

Once Upon A Light Review: Save The Light Of Your Life

I’ve tested dozens of physics-based casual games. Some of them are so hard I don’t like to play them. Others are so simple I get bored. Finding a middle ground isn’t as easy as it sounds. I guess I’m the baby bear of the app testing world.

I’ve tested dozens of physics-based casual games. Some of them are so hard I don’t like to play them. Others are so simple I get bored. Finding a middle ground isn’t as easy as it sounds. I guess I’m the baby bear of the app testing world.

Once Upon a Light is a pleasantly surprising casual game that requires you to think ahead to your next move, but doesn’t require precise aim or timing skills so you can enjoy a challenge without ripping your hair out from frustration…


The game’s theme is a bit of Steam Punk and a bit of cartoon animation. The beginning cinematic shows a mustached cowboy who is trying to save his ladylove from being carted off to another electronic environment. Once separated, the brightly lit “Eddie” is determined to plug into the right outlet to save his beloved. It is your job to help him reach her.

Each level features one entrance portal, a handful of light sockets, some metal and glass walls, three energy coins, and the exit portal. Players fling Eddie from one socket to the next, bouncing off of walls and collecting energy along the way.

Each socket can only be activated a specific number of times. That is, Eddie can only plug in to the same socket so many times. When a socket is all used up, the light bulbs attached to it will go dark.

The game has seven worlds that are represented by seven sections of a balloon-powered airship. The different worlds have different backgrounds and increasingly challenging puzzles.


The goal of this game is to get from the starting portal to the ending portal on each level. Collecting energy along the way will help you earn extra points. The game isn’t timed, so you can take as long as you want to figure out the best plan of attack.

Players start at the first portal and must get to a nearby socket. To launch Eddie, touch the screen where he is and drag your finger behind him. This will create a target line in front of Eddie, which will help you aim for the next socket. When you let go of the screen, he will fling to the target. Sometimes, there are obstacles in the way, like walls, which keep you from getting directly to the next socket. Sometimes, you will need to aim your shot so that Eddie bounces off of different walls and lands in a socket. Other times, you will need to break through glass walls and re-send Eddie to his next landing spot.

There are also various switches and knobs that you must turn on or off by flinging Eddie past or into them. For example, there is an electric springboard that automatically flings Eddie across the room at a certain angle. To rotate the spring so that it faces a different direction, fling Eddie across its corresponding switch and it will rotate to the new position.

Along the way, players should try to collect energy coins. There are three on each level. When you collect them all, you will receive the maximum points. Oftentimes, the path to all three energy coins is significantly more difficult than the path directly to the exit. But don’t take the easy route. The fun is in the challenge.

The Good

Casual physics-based puzzle games tend to either be way too hard, or so repetitive that it gets boring fairly fast. This game has just enough challenge to keep you interested, without being so hard you give up.

The Bad

The game’s tutorial or how-to is very vague. There are no words, so you have to rely on an animated pointing finger to understand new game mechanics. While it wasn’t difficult to figure out what the finger was pointing at, I’d like a bit more clarity on the rules and mechanics.


Once Upon a Light costs $0.99. That is the perfect price for a game of this caliber. There are almost 50 levels across seven different worlds and no in-app purchases to make you spend more money.


Fans of physics-based games will feel right at home with this title. It is not going to win any awards for innovation, but it is a fun and entertaining game that will keep you occupied for at least a few hours. Not bad for only a buck.

Honor View 20 Review: Better Than The Oneplus 6T?

Honor’s View series is the company’s most premium range in India and after last year’s success with Honor View 10, the Honor View 20 has arrived in India at Rs 37,999, which puts it head to head against the OnePlus 6T.

I have been using the Honor View 20 as my primary phone for the last 10 days now. I switched from my OnePlus 6, and I have also used the OnePlus 6T, but I had certain apprehensions to say the least.

I know the View 20 has a 48MP camera, but we all know that more megapixels don’t necessarily mean a better camera. Let’s see if Honor has managed to convince me.

First, check out our video on the phone, and then read on to find out my thoughts on it too.

22.5W Huawei Super Charger

USB-C to USB-A cable

Honor View 20 Design and Display

As I said, I had plenty of doubts about the Honor View 20, but after using it for a week and more, I was pleasantly surprised. The first thing I loved about the Honor View 20 is its stunning, premium design. The View 20 is, without a doubt, a looker.

The glass back with the awesome V-pattern brushed finish is really striking, and the almost bezel-less front makes for a gorgeous looking phone overall. Plus, I really like the display on the View 20. It’s not AMOLED, like the OnePlus 6T, and I do prefer AMOLED, but the display on the View 20 hasn’t disappointed me one bit.

The 6.4-inch IPS LCD screen is vibrant, and it’s pretty bright so it’s visible outdoors. There’s one complaint though, and that’s the lack of Gorilla Glass or any other branded protection. Our View 20 easily picked up a few scratches, so if you buy this phone, please use a screen protector.

The big change on the front is the punch-hole camera design and I have really gotten used to it. You can easily ignore the punch hole in most of the UI, apps and games, and since it’s just a small hole, it’s not a problem at all, even if you do notice it. Plus, I like the nice animations Honor has added to the ring around the hole when you are on a call, or when you switch to the front camera. These are nice touches that really add to the experience.

What I really appreciate on the View 20 is that it has everything covered. There’s a tiny notification LED at the top up front, and while it’s very small, it gets the job done. The fingerprint scanner is also perfectly placed and it’s super fast, unlike the inconsistent in-display fingerprint scanner on the 6T. Honestly, I definitely prefer the physical sensor on the View 20.

There is the USB-C port at the bottom, and the headphone jack on the top, which surely gives it some points over the OnePlus 6T. Yes, there’s no wireless charging, and some sort of water resistance would have been nice but those aren’t really deal-breakers.

Honor View 20 Performance

The Honor View 20 has the flagship-grade Kirin 980 SoC, which makes it a phone that’s super snappy, and that’s coming from someone used to great performance on the OnePlus 6, Since the View 20 is in the same price range, I was expecting great performance from it, and well, Honor hasn’t disappointed at all.

Be it gaming, usual day-to-day tasks or multitasking, the phone hasn’t slowed down at all for me over the 10 days. High-end games like PUBG Mobile and Asphalt 9 run on high graphics settings, and there has been no lag, and I like the fact that unlike the OnePlus 6T’s Snapdragon 845, the Kirin 980 is more future proof.

The OnePlus 7 will arrive soon with the Snapdragon 855, and that will make the 6T’s Snapdragon 845 a little old, while the Kirin 980 is a new 7nm processor that can take on the 855. Anyway, if you are wondering about the benchmark scores of the View 20 and the 6T, take a look. It’s clear that the Kirin 980 brings out the best in this phone and is more than capable of matching the 845.

Honor View 20 Software and Magic UI

Some credit for the great performance has to go to the well-optimized Magic UI 2.0. It’s still pretty much EMUI, with Android Pie on board, and while I am still not a fan, after using it for so many days, I have realized that I can live with it. Firstly, even though it has a number of pre-installed apps, I like that Honor lets you uninstall most of them, which is great and secondly, Magic UI brings some really interesting features.

There’s face unlock here, which is really fast, similar to what you get on the OnePlus 6T, so I really like that. There are also navigation gestures, which are a lot like the gestures on MIUI, and I think it’s a great implementation, although I haven’t found way to switch between apps, so that’s a little disappointing.

Another great feature is Digital Balance, yes Honor’s very own version of Digital Wellbeing, which shows me the time I spend on the phone, the apps I use the most, and I can even set app limits, and the bedtime, which removes the color from the screen to make it easier for you to nod off. It’s a great implementation of digital wellbeing features by Honor, and I am pretty sure a lot of users will find it handy.

Magic UI also brings an Easy Projection feature, which lets you access a Samsung DeX-like desktop UI by connecting your phone to a WiFi TV or monitor, but the twist here is, you don’t need a cable, it works wirelessly, and surprisingly, it works pretty well. I mean, I was expecting lag but the in my usage, things were pretty smooth. To be honest, using the View 20 as a trackpad isn’t the most intuitive thing, but I definitely think this feature can be handy for people who want to make a presentation or edit documents on a bigger screen. It’s a nice addition from Honor.

Anyway, there are a lot of other great features I found in Magic UI, like the performance mode, which sets your device to offer the maximum performance, fingerprint scanner gestures that I have found to be really useful.

Honor View 20 Cameras

The performance on the View 20 is something that really impressed me, but I know you are waiting for the word on that camera. The View 20 has the Sony IMX586 48MP sensor and a 3D Time of Flight sensor, which is honestly pretty limited, since there are no 3D motion games or apps you can try to test the 3D camera out.

Anyway, I took tons of photos with the View 20, and while there is an option to take 48MP photos, I much preferred the 12MP mode, which uses pixel binning.

Firstly, there’s not a lot of difference between the 12MP and 48MP shot from the View 20.  Sometimes the 48MP photo has a little more detail, and yes, you can zoom in to the photos more, but that’s pretty much it.

I also prefer the 12MP mode, because of the 1.6 micron pixel size, which means it’s a lot better in low light.

Overall, I like the camera on the View 20. It takes sharp and detailed photos in good light, as you can see, but there’s one small issue I have. Now, these photos might look great, but the View 20 generally captures photos that are warm. Almost every photo seems to have a little bit of yellowish tint in them, as you can see above.

Another problem is that the Portrait Mode on the View 20 does smoothen the face a lot, and that’s with beautification disabled. Some photos look fine, but when you zoom in, almost every photo has a bit of smoothening going on, which kind of ruins some shots.

Let me show you how it fares against the OnePlus 6T. So, here are a few comparison shots, and well, it’s very close.

The photos look very similar, but I do prefer the 6T, with its more natural colors. However, it’s clear when you zoom into these images that the View 20 has more details. Even in low light photos, it’s very close. Generally, the View 20 photos are brighter, but I prefer 6T’s shots for the detail they offer.

Honor View 20 Night Mode

The Honor View 20’s 25MP camera takes decent selfies, and well, it’s strictly decent. I mean, some selfies have the weird beautification going on, and some selfies just do not have much detail, even though it’s a 25MP camera.


Honor View 20 Video Recording

When it comes to videos, the View 20 has support for 4K, but there’s no 4K@60FPS support, which is a let down. The stability isn’t all that great because there’s no OIS, but the quality is really good. The details are nice, the colors are fine, and it’s sharp all around. Compared to the 6T, the video quality is just a tad bit better, but the 6T has more stability, since it has OIS.

Honor View 20 Battery Life

The View 20’s 4,000 mAh battery has generally been very good to me. On most days, the phone easily lasted me more than a day. My usual day begins with some Google Maps usage, some music and continues with games, social media, mails, browsing, etc. The phone would generally be around 40-50% by the end of the day, which is really great. Plus, I like how EMUI always reminded me which apps are taking up more battery, so I could limit their usage, if needed.

And yes, the View 20 does come with Super Charge support. There’s a 40W charger in the box. I mean, the brick clearly says 40W, but weirdly, the View 20 only supports 22.5W SuperCharge, and not 40W SuperCharge 2.0, like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

While the Mate 20 Pro goes from 15 to 100% in just 50 minutes, the View 20 takes around 1 hour 20 minutes. That’s amazingly fast, and very similar to Dash Charge, so it’s still fairly impressive. Overall, the View 20 is pretty great when it comes to the battery and charging.

Honor View 20: What’s Good and What’s Bad Pros

Stunning glass design

Bright and vibrant LCD

No notch design

Flagship performance thanks to Kirin 980

Great battery life and fast charging

Very capable camera and plenty of AI features

USB Type-C port and headphone jack


No wireless charging

No water resistance

Front camera could be better

3D TOF camera is useless right now

Lack of any screen protection

No 4K@60FPS support

Magic UI 2 can be overwhelming

Honor View 20: Better Than OnePlus 6T?

So the question is: Should you buy the Honor View 20 over the OnePlus 6T? If you want an AMOLED display, water resistance, a more refined Android skin, and slightly better cameras, the OnePlus 6T is the phone you should go for. It’s that simple.

However, the Honor View 20 at Rs. 37,999 is a great flagship phone, and one with almost no compromises.

Emeet Nova Webcam Review: Meet In Your Best Light

Not only do you want a webcam that helps you connect with others remotely, but you also want one that helps you look your best. The eMeet Nova Webcam promises to help you look more professional through autofocus and auto low light correction. I recently had the opportunity to try this webcam out for myself.

Overview of Features

The eMeet Nova Webcam is small and portable, making it a great addition to add to your laptop bag for meetings anywhere. It connects easily to your computer via a USB cable, making it widely compatible. It also works with most meeting software, so you can connect with clients and co-workers where they want to meet.

The plug-and-play installation makes it ideal for all types of users. With no drivers or software, you’re able to start using the webcam immediately on Windows and Mac devices.

Some of the most impressive features that’ll make your next meeting look and sound even better include:

2 MP camera featuring 1920 x 1080p resolution

96-degree wide angle autofocus lens

4-layer lens for sharper video

2 omnidirectional noise canceling mics

Auto low-light correction to correct lighting and white balance

180-degree flexible clip to fit most any laptop or monitor

Support for tripod

Getting Started

Right out of the box, the eMeet Nova Webcam is simple to set up. Just unfold the clip and attach it to the top of your monitor or laptop screen. Then, plug in the USB cable and wait for your system to install it automatically.

If your system doesn’t set your microphone and camera defaults to eMeet, the instruction booklet takes you step by step through how to change this on both Mac and Windows. I was pleasantly surprised to see such detailed instructions, as many webcams skip over this part and just say “change your settings.”

If your laptop already has a built-in webcam, you may have to manually select the eMeet webcam in your chosen video-calling app.

The eMeet Nova Webcam in Action

The first thing I always do when trying out a webcam is do a quick comparison with my built-in laptop webcam. That gives me a good idea of the overall video quality before I even start a meeting.

The following image is my built-in laptop webcam:

While it’s not terrible, the image is rather grainy. Plus, it’d be difficult for more than one person to be in the shot at a time without feeling crowded.

The next image is the eMeet Nova webcam:

As you can tell, the image is much sharper, though it did seem almost blurry at times during my testing. However, the video does look better than my built-in webcam. Plus, when placed at the right angle, which you can easily adjust, you can have several people in the same shot.

Testing During a Meeting

While the above tested out the initial video quality, the next test was to see how well the mics performed. I had a meeting in Google Meet and another in Skype.

I put on some background noise with a Spotify playlist to test out the noise-canceling feature. While I could hear my music in the background, the other party couldn’t. It wasn’t until I really turned it up that they could hear it well. Otherwise, they just heard my voice and some very faint typing. In the webcam’s defense, I am a very loud typist.

Throughout our meeting, the other party had no trouble hearing me. We didn’t experience any echoing or fading. In fact, I stood up at one point and moved around just to see how well the mics picked up. Even when I was several feet away, the other party could hear me clearly.

Here’s where I wasn’t quite as impressed, though. I took a screenshot of myself at the end of the Google Meet meeting. My client said I looked slightly blurry at times, but overall still clearer than my built-in webcam. They were kind enough to see how I looked on both webcams.

It could have been the light, though. The colors also seemed a bit more faded than I expected. However, I usually look much more washed out due to being pale. The white balance correction did add a little more color to my face.

Auto Low-Light Correction Works

Of course, I had to put the eMeet Nova Webcam to the test concerning the auto low light correction. I always struggle to find a good place that’s not too dim or too bright. To see just what the webcam was capable of, I tried it with just a small desk light on dim about six feet away. Overall, it was incredibly dark where I was sitting.

However, the webcam still picked me up with no problem. In fact, I could actually hold a meeting like this, though it probably wouldn’t look as professional. Maybe I could just read a scary story.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the eMeet Nova Webcam performed great throughout my tests. I could be heard clearly and the focus stayed clear even as I moved around. While there did seem to be a little blur, it wasn’t a real issue. Honestly, my built-in webcam has more blurry.

If you struggle with finding brighter lighting, this webcam has you covered. The auto low-light correction works well and helps balance colors.

While I do wish it came with a tripod, there is a place to add a small screw on a tripod yourself. If you don’t need one, then the built-in clip is all you need.

You can try out the eMeet Nova Webcam yourself for just $39.99.
