Design and colors

Honor Magic 6 Pro Review

HONOR Magic 6 Pro is coming Black and Epi Green color options and in my case I enjoyed the deep black option. It features a sleek and stylish design, with a camera bulge that adds a unique touch to the device. The back of the phone is covered with a semi-glossy material that not only looks premium but also provides a grippy and fingerprint-resistant surface. The front of the phone boasts a quad-curved OLED display that adds to the premium look and feel of the device. While some may not be fans of curved screens, the Honor Magic 6 Pro manages to strike a balance with its subtle curves.


When you unbox the Honor Magic 6 Pro, you’ll find a minimalist package that includes a USB-C cable and a SIM eject tool. Honor has followed the trend of removing the charger from the box, which may disappoint some users – myself included. However, the Honor Magic 6 Pro still offers a premium unboxing experience with its elegant packaging and attention to detail.

LTPO technology allows the display to dynamically switch between 1 and 120Hz refresh rates, ensuring smooth scrolling and gaming experiences. The display also supports Dolby Vision and HDR10+, providing a more immersive viewing experience. With a peak brightness of over 1500 nits, the Honor Magic 6 Pro’s display is also bright enough to read easily even in direct sunlight.


The Honor Magic 6 Pro’s camera system is another highlight of the device. It has a 50MP primary camera with f/1.4-2.0 adjustable aperture. This allows for greater control over depth of field and low-light performance.

The phone also features a 50MP ultra-wide camera with a 122° field of view, capturing stunning wide-angle photos. However, the standout feature of the camera system is the massive 180MP telephoto camera that offers an impressive 2.5X optical zoom. The camera system is complemented by a 50MP ultra-wide front camera and a 3D time-of-flight sensor, enabling high-quality selfies and accurate depth reading.
