Honor returns to the mid-range with a new smartphone: the Magic 5 Lite. The brand puts forward an important argument for this model: great autonomy. It promises three-day endurance verified by DXOMARK.
Today the Honor Magic 5 Lite is launched, which we could have got our hands on a few days earlier. A smartphone for less than 400 euros that aims to be light and thin, while offering a solid, but classic technical sheet. Honor boasts of having a model that can be used for three days in a row, with a remarkable verification entity: DXOMark, a laboratory that measures smartphone performance (camera, performance, battery, among other things).
A promising 5100 mAh battery
The Honor Magic 5 Lite has a large 5100 mAh battery, compared to the 4800 mAh of the Honor Magic 4 Lite. However, the manufacturer prides itself on having a model whose weight has been reduced by 4 grams and its thickness by 15%. In a press release we learn that he has optimized the size of the other components and his software to improve the endurance of his product.
DXOMark confirms more than three full days of battery life”moderate usefor the Honor Magic 5 Lite. On his sitewe see that this model is the first in the ranking of the best smartphones in terms of “battery(including range, charge and efficiency).
In the individual scores, however, he is not the first, but is behind on autonomy at 16 points and is 4 points behind the first place on efficiency. As for the charge, it still misses 55 points to reach first place. This is explained by a maximum power of 40 W: we are far from the 150 W of the Realme GT Neo 5.
DXOMark has therefore measured an autonomy of three days and two hours, for a full charge in 1h51. You can go from 0 to 80% in exactly 46 minutes and a 5 minute charge would restore up to 6:14 of stamina.
The autonomy of the Honor Magic 5 Lite measured by DXOMark

- Play Video: 10:15 PM

- Social media: 1:34 p.m
- GPS: 10:22 am
