Following the Honor X8 last week, Honor continues to roll out its 2022 news with the Honor Magic4 Lite 5G. A mid-range device that relies on a solid technical sheet, a versatile photo block and, above all, generous autonomy.
The months of May and June are a good time for Honor, which in a few weeks will present us with no less than three new smartphones. A few days ago, for example, we told you about the Honor X8, an excellent beginner-level smartphone. Today, the time has come to discuss the Honor Magic4 Lite 5G, a device that intends to impose on the highly competitive middle segment.
A task far from insurmountable, as the Honor Magic4 Lite 5G has some solid assets in its pocket, especially on the side of its technical data sheet and its battery. It should also be noted that this Magic4 Lite 5G like Honor X8 benefits from all Google services, from applications to Play Store.
Last advantage, and not least: its price as it is offered around 350 euros. And even less at the moment, because it currently benefits from a discount at many retailers, which lowers the price to just 319 euros or 299 euros at Fnac and Darty.
Where to find Honor Magic4 Lite 5G at the best price:
A design that focuses on sobriety and ergonomics
For its Honor Magic4 Lite 5G, Honor has opted for sobriety. This smartphone has clear lines with rounded angles that are pleasing to the eye and peeled edges: The sound control buttons and the on / off button (which hides a discreet and efficient fingerprint sensor) are thus distributed on the right edge, while the bottom holds a speaker, a USB C-port and a dual SIM drawer.
The back cover, in turn, hosts a circular photo block reminiscent of the Honor 50 Lite 5G, which has three photosensors and a flash distributed around its perimeter. In front, there is a very large 6.81-inch LCD screen pierced with a punch that houses the selfie camera. Honor has also been particularly careful with this screen, which utilizes very thin edges to accommodate most of this front facade, providing a fairly usable surface.
Despite this large screen, the Honor Magic4 Lite 5G remains quite light (less than 190 grams) and quite thin (almost 8.05 mm), which is quite comfortable to use. Honor Magic4 Lite 5G is available in three colors: Midnight Black, Titanium Silver and Ocean Blue.
A versatile technical sheet carried by a Snapdragon 695
Mainly powered by this Honor Magic4 Lite 5G undoubtedly remains its Snapdragon 695 chip, a SoC with proven performance, which, here accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and an additional 2 GB of virtual memory, enables this smartphone to offer performance and agility in any case . A fluidity that we find on the screen thanks to the 120 Hz offered by the panel that Honor has installed on its device.
This solid technical sheet also allows it to perform perfectly on the video game part, with the advantage that it practically does not get hot in the heart of the action. Whether you want to play Fortnite or Genshin Impact (with graphics settings set to medium or low), you get smooth and stable gameplay.
Large battery and fast charging: the winning combination for XXL autonomy
The autonomy of a smartphone is always a critical factor, and Honor has well understood that. That’s why the manufacturer has equipped its new smartphone with a battery that peaks at 4800 mAh, as well as a 66 W charging block (included in the box), so it can go from 0 to 97% in 45 minutes.
Another factor that plays an important role in the generous autonomy of Honor Magic4 Lite 5G: the adaptive refresh rate of the LCD monitor. Thanks to this process, the device can easily operate for two days with moderate use, and a great day by abusing energy-intensive features such as GPS.
A triple photosensor with satisfactory performance
On the photo side, the Honor Magic4 Lite 5G can count on three sensors located in the heart of a circular module. In detail, it is a 48 megapixel main sensor that opens at f / 1.8, a 2 megapixel macro sensor that opens at f / 2.4 and a 2 megapixel depth of field sensor that also opens at f / 2.4.
A fairly classic, but all in all, effective arsenal that gives this smartphone access to a wide range of photo modes, such as the now classic night and portrait modes. It also has an “Aperture” mode that, as the name suggests, allows you to play with the sensor’s aperture to achieve a more or less pronounced bokeh effect. Here are some pictures taken with Honor Magic 4 Pro.
Finally, on the video side, the Honor Magic4 Lite 5G is capable of capturing images in Full HD at most.
