Reviewing the Honor Magic V2 after using this foldable as my full-time phone, including an unboxing, camera test, gaming, battery life and beyond. The Honor Magic V2 is one of the most impressive bendy smartphones of 2023, even against rivals like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Pixel Fold. Check out my reviews of the best foldables and phones right now! When it comes to the camera performance, the Honor Magic V2 isn't as powerful as the Pixel Fold, with Google's excellent image processing. It's fine for most everyday shots, but struggles when it comes to the telephoto zoom - while the Samsung Z Fold 5 beats it for video. However, the Honor Magic V2 has them both beat for design. It's ridiculously skinny and light, with zero gap and a smooth hinge (although it can't stay open quite as wide when sat on a desk). Likewise, I really liked the external display, which is much easier to use than the Galaxy foldable. Battery life is another area where the Magic V2 absolutely smashes the competition. While the Pixel Fold and Samsung Z Fold 5 occasionally die within the day, I never had that problem with the Honor foldable. And while the Honor Magic V2 isn't as accomplished for multi-tasking, I'd happily use it for longer as my full time phone. That's what I think, let us know your thoughts below!

What is the price of this phone in the USA?
OnePlus Open is better no?
Hey mate, awrsome video review. Would you mind doing an extensive desktop mode test ? Thanks
I was going to buy Honor Magic v2 on Aliexpress but when I went to see what system was included I felt like throwing up, doesn't come Google Play store, the camera didn't care even though it wasn't very good but without Google Play store is like going from Android to Apple. I'm very disappointed, such a good phone and it doesn't come with Google Play Store
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is always the best in many things, I prefer it to everyone also for its Form Factor💪🏼
Does uses Android?
Hi! Just notice your opening mentioned V2 as Vs2. It turns out Honor just released a lower spec version named Vs2. Are you gonna review the one too?
Shame they didnt include stylus support on the international version, the Chinese versions include a stylus and works on outer and inner screens.
I don't understand this obsession with the camera?It's a PHONE for chrissakes.And the other thing is:Where the f&&& can I buy one...?
it's really a shananigan phone and a nails prone screen
It's called the Magic V2 because it's the follow up to the Magic V, which was never released outside of China. The Magic Vs was the first one released outside of China, but it's just a minor upgrade to the V, like Apple used to do with their "S" options...
I have a question: Does the global version support the embedded esim card
The phone wins it. Damn!!!!. So sad i don’t have the money for it😢
If you didn't send it back to honor..do you wanna sell it?..my offer is £1000 ..
I cant go back to no water proof, Im in too deep on the not worrying about it getting wet.
Surely the selfie cam has CHEESE or WHISKEY voice activation option?
My LG G from 2013 had this and it worked flawlessly and my current Samsung Note 10+ has this too.
Finally a worthy foldable...samsungs and Google's r uselss...y its diff to understand tat we need a wide screen outside just like a regular phone and then use the inner screen as a bonus...will wait for one plus open and see how it goes
I wanna buy
The V2, eh? Bet that goes down a storm in parts of London.
