The design of the Honor Magic 3 Series
Now firstly, the Honor Magic 3 series consist out of three different smartphones in the series and they are the following:
- Honor Magic 3
- Honor Magic 3 Pro
- Honor Magic 3 Pro +
The series basically has a similar breakdown which Huawei is offering in their different smartphone series. Now we will look at the design of each Honor Magic 3 series smartphone to see if their are any differences.
A) Honor Magic 3:
As you can see in the illustration above, the Honor Magic 3 look really similar to the Huawei Mate 40 Pro in design. However, the Honor Magic 3 specs might differ with Huawei Mate 40 Pro as well in the colors it is available in.
The Honor Magic 3 comes available in the following colors:
- Golden Hour (Vegan Leather)
- Blue Hour (Vegan Leather)
As you will notice, two of the colors available out of the four will be made out of a different material which is Vegan Leather. Something many users will love and will be supported by the Vegan community. Sadly, I do not have images of the black and white color, but the ones in the illustration are the vegan leather options.
B) Honor Magic 3 Pro:
In the illustration above, you will see the exact similar look as the Honor Magic 3. The only differences between the two will be their specs which we will be viewing shortly, the amount of colors available for each one and the rear camera layout is a bit different.
The rear camera lens layout for the Honor Magic 3 Pro are all above, whereas the Honor Magic 3 rear camera lens layouts are divided by having two camera lenses above and two below. Plus the flash is also at a different location between the two.
The Honor Magic 3 Pro will only be available in three different colors and they are the following:
- Golden Hour (Vegan Leather)
Basically, the Honor Magic 3 Pro will only have one color for the Vegan Leather option whereas the Honor Magic 3 will have to color selections in the Vegan Leather option.
C) Honor Magic 3 Pro + :
In the illustration above you see a beast of a smartphone. It is totally different and new in the smartphone market. The Honor Magic 3 Pro+ looks way more impressive out of the entire series due to its fancy luxurious look as well giving the image it is very durable. In my honest opinion, if you have to place these three smartphones against each other, I will of course pick this one due to its look. Hopefully its specs are also impressive.
The Honor Magic 3 Pro + will be available in two different colors and they are the following:
- Ceramic Black
- Ceramic White
No other fancy colors or the Vegan Leather option is offered for the Honor Magic 3 Pro +. However, with its current design, it does stand out a lot and will attract a lot users.
Overall: The designs of the Honor Magic 3 series are beautiful especially the Honor Magic 3 Pro+. One thing to remember, that all three of these smartphones are very big. They are even bigger than the iPhone 13 Pro Max that is being released in some countries soon. So small smartphone lovers, the Honor Magic 3 series would not be for you in terms of size.
The main features for the Honor Magic 3 Series
Besides the unique designs the Honor Magic 3 series will offer, they will also offer some unique features especially for their cameras. One of the features are called AI Film Master. Basically, it provides the user the capability to record videos in proper beautiful cinema quality. It is a fantastic feature if you love to take good quality videos and want to make a film about it.
The AI Film Master will offer the following features for your videos:
Thus, giving the user a wide range of options to choose from for their videos. Excellent feature and something many the new premium smartphone from other brands are also considering offering.
Besides the excellent video camera capabilities, the Honor Magic 3 series are water resistant and have IP68 rating confirmed. When a user purchases a premium smartphone, they want to know that their new premium smartphone will not break that easily especially when accidents occur. Thus, giving users the insurance their new Honor Magic 3 series smartphone will be safe if it gets wet.
The specs for the Honor Magic 3 series smartphones
The main specs that stand out for all three Honor Magic 3 series smartphones are the following:
- Rear Camera – The rear camera specs for the Honor Magic 3 smartphones are amazing and beat many premium smartphones that are known to take the best photos and videos. Of course, the Honor Magic 3 Pro + takes the best photos and videos out of the entire series due to all the four camera lenses megapixels are ranked very high. Many other smartphone brands only have one camera lens with high megapixel levels whereas the rest of its lenses have low megapixel levels. That is why this series is popular for it camera capture ability.
- RAM – All three Honor Magic 3 series smartphones offer fast processing speed. This means they give the user a smooth and fast experience while working different applications the same time on all three Honor Magic 3 series smartphones. Now again, the Honor Magic 3 Pro + offers the best RAM memory size which means faster processing speed out of the three Honor Magic 3 series smartphones.
- Storage – All three Honor Magic 3 series smartphones have large amount of on board storage space. Thus, ensuring the user will not run out of storage space any time soon. The Honor Magic 3 Pro + offers the biggest on board storage memory size out of the group. However, the Honor Magic 3 Pro also has the same on board storage size option.
- Battery Capacity – The entire Honor Magic 3 series offers great battery capacity that will last awhile before having the need to recharge. What is interesting, is that all the Honor Magic 3 series smartphones offer the same battery capacity size. That does not usually happen in a smartphone series. There is always the one that is less battery capacity or even more battery capacity as the other. All make use of a 66w fast charger, meaning they will all be able to charge to full power capacity in a short amount of time.
- 5G Network Capability – The entire Honor Magic 3 series will have the ability to connect to the 5G network which is known to be very fast to send and receive data. Another plus point for the series.
The downsides for the entire Honor Magic 3 series:
- Size – The Honor Magic 3 series smartphones have really big screen displays and very bulky. I would not recommend this series for smartphone users that prefer small or slim smartphones to make use of. I can already imagine how the Honor Magic 3 series smartphones will show in my jean pockets.
- Weight – The Honor Magic 3 series smartphones are really heavy to carry and use. There are users that prefer lighter smartphones to carry and easy to hold. Sadly with this series, that will not be possible.
- Front Camera – The front camera of the Honor Magic 3 series smartphones are good, however is not the best compare to other smartphone brand’s front cameras like the Vivo V21 series.
The retail price and where can I purchase them
The Honor Magic 3 series smartphones will cost around the following retail price:
- Honor Magic 3 670 EUR / $778 / R11675
- Honor Magic 3 Pro 1100 EUR / $1277 / R19168
- Honor Magic 3 Pro + 1070 EUR / $1242 / R18645
At the moment, the Honor Magic 3 series is only available in China at the moment. It is probably done this way to see if the series will be successful or not. Hopefully soon the Honor Magic 3 series will be available in other countries around the world.
The Honor Magic 3 series looks amazing and sound like smartphone to definitely look out for if you are one of those users that love to take great quality photos or videos. Many users tend to fall in this category as smartphones with good quality cameras on board has become one of the major norms in smartphone selections.
Yes, you still get those users that do not mind much about the camera specs, but they still tend to select a smartphone that has a good camera at least as well. Besides that feature, the Honor Magic 3 series has an elegant beautiful look to it, especially the ones that are made out of Vegan Leather and then the Honor Magic 3 Pro + design, I hardly have words to explain how beautiful and unique it is.
For my smartphone preferences, I definitely will go for the Honor Magic 3 Pro + as it has unique design, big screen display, the best camera specs and enough battery capacity to last for a long time. Then of course other specs to, but mainly those features attract for me. Plus the Honor Magic 3 Pro + will have GMS (Google Mobile Services) pre-installed, which is a must for me. And GMS will be installed for the entire series, so please do not be concerned that you will lose some applications when selecting one of the smartphones in the Honor Magic 3 series.
As you can tell, I am already sold for the Honor Magic 3 series, but the question is:
