Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and more

The highest range of Honor is already official: the Honor Magic 3, Honor Magic 3 Pro and Honor Magic 3 Pro +. This trio of aces faces great competition in Western territory, especially the most powerful model of the three. We compare the Honor Magic 3+ with the more powerful Android.

Honor has gone through various ups and downs in recent months, it is not in vain that the company has been associated with Huawei; with the inconvenience of the American veto which also weighs on its back. With the sale of the company Honor promised to redeploy its phones outside of China. And it’s already done: the Honor Magic3 are taking the international route. Skills must gain a place, especially the most powerful of the family, the Honor Magic3 Pro +.

Extremely curved screen

Maximum front-end use is the key to the mobile strategy. From cuts and holes, we move on to the camera under the screen, like that of the Xiaomi Mix 4. However, Honor is betting on the wide hole to house the dual front camera. Of course, the panel is extremely curved, much more than that of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

The screen technology chosen by Honor for its most powerful mobile is OLED (flexible), the usual in the phones it competes. Resolution of 1344 x 2772 pixels (the Sony Xperia 1 III tops the list thanks to its exaggerated 4K resolution), refresh rate of 120 Hz (in line with its competition) and 6.76 inches in size.

The Honor Magic3 Pro + puts a lot of emphasis in terms of processor: the Snapdragon 888+ is the same that Xiaomi chooses for its latest flagship mobile, the Mix 4. In line with performance with the rest of the premium range with which it competes, the Magic3 Pro + It includes storage and RAM to spare for capacity, also for speed. 12 and 512 GB, single model.

Five rear and dual front cameras

Photographic capabilities are essential in every brand’s commitment to the premium line of smartphones. From the microscope camera of the OPPO Find X3 Pro, we move on to the impressive rectangular photographic module of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. And Honor is not left out in the Magic3 Pro since its circular module relies on very high resolution for each of its elements.

The multiplicity of cameras is present in all the mobiles in this comparison. The high-resolution main camera, wide-angle, and telephoto all share these characteristics (some with periscopic elements, such as Xiaomi, Samsung, and Honor itself). On the Magic3 Pro +, the rear module is circular in shape with all cameras anchored to the perimeter; With the exception of the central, with 50 megapixel resolution.

In front, the Honor Magic3 Pro + is the only one to offer a dual front camera, the second with a TOF sensor dedicated to 3D facial recognition.

International and with Google applications

Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra

One of the big hurdles for Honor before its sale by Huawei was the inability to access Google Apps. This changes with the new Honor Magic3 series as they are all compatible with Google apps and services; like the rest of its competitors on the other hand (the Xiaomi Mix 4 will only be marketed in China, so it will not have Google Apps directly).

Access to software commonly used outside of China opens the frontiers of the Honor Magic3 Pro +. In addition, the company equips the phone with its own software layer: Magic UI 5 in addition to Android 11 (the competition also offers this version; and all will upgrade to Android 12 without a problem). The others also offer their own layer, each company in its own way. The Sony Xperia 1 III delivers the cleanest Android experience.

The Honor Magic3 Pro + battery reaches 4,600 mAh (average for the comparison). And it hits a good number in terms of fast and wireless charging: 66 and 50W respectively (with reverse wireless charging). Samsung, Sony and OPPO are the ones falling behind when it comes to the power of their chargers, both wired and wireless.
