Honor the MagicBook 14 laptop for review



Honor the MagicBook 14 laptop for review

Finally, Honor, a subsidiary of Huawei, has introduced its first laptop to the Spanish market and, in fact, is an excellent tool in almost every way. With a premium design, impressive battery life, and solid interior specs, the MagicBook 14 offers one of the best value for money you can ever earn.

We are able to spend a few days using the Honor MagicBook 14 Laptop to tell you if everything is going well as it looks. If you want to know more, keep reading! We tell you if this Honor laptop is right for you or not.


The 1080p IPS LCD's screen saver has no space – its bezels are very thin, especially on the sides and top, and the screen-to-body ratio is 84%. Less is great, but not completely integrated, you actually end up forgetting that it is there when you use a laptop.

As for the light of the mirror, it's not a bright thing we've seen, but unless you have the idea to use it regularly outside, this shouldn't be a problem.

The completion of the model we were able to test comes when Honor calls it “Space Gray”, which we have come to understand more and more as a secret tone that we undoubtedly love. If you do not like this finish, and you have the option to purchase it in the “Mystic” color, which is similar but simple. The cover shows the Honor logo on the right at the right end.

It is a lightweight notebook, weighing about 1.38kg and 15.9mm in diameter. This makes it an ideal candidate for those who want a laptop to move from one site to another.

Adding to its brightness is the joy of using its buttons: they work well and work well, without too much pressure. The space and size of the buttons are also sufficient, it will be comfortable to use for almost anyone, regardless of the size of the hands you have.

According to webcamIn this case, the camera-hiding custom (1 MP) on the keyboard has been tracked (directly between the F6 and F7 keys). This reduces the bezel size at the top of the screen and protects your privacy.

However, it is also true that the camera focuses on you from below, so if you have a video call your viewers will see your subtle snapshot. Your fingers are also visible when you are typing while using the camera, which may irritate you.

Another feature included on the laptop is a fingerprint reader that you can use to unlock the computer, although we personally chose to continue using the four-digit password.

The speakers are kept at the bottom of the app, and we were surprised to see that they have great laptop power for this price. Alternatively, audio quality is acceptable.


As for the processor, the MagBookBook 14 is available with only one option: AMD's Ryzen 5 3500U. It comes with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space, two of which will be enough to get good performance in daily tasks, such as browsing the Internet, watching videos or running simple programs.

Respect has never changed in ports. We looked at USB-C, dual USB-A, large jackphone and HDMI installation The last port is often left out of mid-laptops, so we were happy to find it.

The MagicBook 14 comes with a 56Wh battery, which we have found to be able to last longer than a day used or less. This is also supported by a battery test in which the Honorable received a 10 hour mark and 43 marks.

As for charging speed, if you are using USB-C charging, you will only have to wait 90 minutes for it to go from being empty to 100% complete.

Obviously it’s not a laptop designed for the gamer world, but thanks to its graphics card Radeon Vega 8, it can still use games like Planet Zoo that make them work well.

On the other hand, the fan system does a good job on this device. Although used for many hours, it is not the time for excessive pulling or making noise.

We put MagicBook 14 through our rating tests to see how similar it is to similar competing models. As you can see, the result is quite good.

It is true that the Acer Swift 3 laptop does better than any other, but it is also true that it does not show much about Magic Book 14 in other aspects such as battery life.

Value for money

If we continue to analyze the results obtained in performance tests, we continue to see that this laptop is capable of competing with competitors that cost 200 dollars more. The fact is that MagicBook 14 offers the best value of money we have ever received.

Also important to note is that Huawei's Matebook D laptop is almost identical in terms of specifications – the only difference being the smaller design variants.

However, the Matebook D is priced at $649 , that is, more expensive than the Magic Book 14 and you get the same product anyway. So if you are not worried about having a less well-known brand, the Honor MagicBook 14 is obviously the best option if you are in doubt between the two options.

The decision

When it comes to money, the Honor's MagicBook 14 is the best option available. You take home a high-quality laptop with the best definitions without having to pay the price we usually pay for high-end computers.

The screen is ready to watch videos, the processor can run some powerful programs and games, and its lightweight design makes it a great laptop to carry. In short, if you are looking for a flexible laptop for work or study, the Honor MagicBook 14 would be our recommendation.
