Introduction and Specifications

The Midranger in Honor’s flagship Magic series returns for another round in 2023, offering a few upgrades over its predecessor. While last year’s Magic4 Lite was a bit disappointing, we have higher hopes for the Magic5 Lite, mainly because it fixes some bugs from the past.

Specifically, the Honor Magic5 Lite is a rebranded Honor x9a that was released in some Asian markets back in January, so you can use this review to decide if the x9a is worth getting. The two handsets are identical.

The updated Lite features a superior OLED panel instead of IPS while still running at 120Hz, has a better main camera, adds an ultrawide on the back, increases battery capacity, and offers a fresh new back design.

The phone continues to use Honor’s established design language, but we like the minimalist ring on the back better than before. In addition, it has a distinctive look that no other midranger has.

The device also comes with an updated Magic UI 6.1 based on Android 12, which promises more features and improvements under the hood. Of course, Google’s mobile services are on board as the company is now a separate entity from Huawei.

Honor Magic5 Lite / Honor x9a Specs at a glance:

One thing has remained unchanged and that is the chipset. The new model shares its predecessor’s Snapdragon 695 SoC, which is a capable mid-range silicon but lacks 4K video recording capabilities. And that’s our only beef with Qualcomm’s offering. How well this chipset performs in the context of this year’s midrangers is something we’ll examine over the following pages, so read on to find out more.

Unpacking the Honor Magic5 Lite

To our surprise, the Magic5 Lite arrived without a charger in the box. There is only one USB-A to USB-C cable used for charging and data transfer.

There was no case in the box either. Now we can’t be sure if all markets will get the same retail package, but our device didn’t get a charger. And yes, last year’s Magic4 Lite had the 66W charger to match.
