The HONOR Magic6 Lite is a phone that arrives ready to set the path for 2024. This smartphone, a trimmed-down version of an upcoming HONOR Magic6, proves to be an excellent choice for users looking for a mid-range phone that won’t break the bank. Specifically, the official price it comes with is 400 euros. And the truth is that it’s an investment that can pay off, considering that you’ll get a phone with an extended battery that will last for a day and a half or even two days of use, featuring a curved display that is delightful for viewing multimedia content (and has been worked on for resistance to withstand drops of up to one and a half meters), and all of this is crowned with a main 108-megapixel camera that performs remarkably well in night photos and also includes a 3X lossless zoom.
There is no doubt that it will become one of the most attractive phones in the first half of 2024, or at least it will set the bar quite high. Let’s explore the key features of this HONOR Magic6 Lite.

In your experience, we have been able to thoroughly test this phone, and the aspect that has impressed us the most is the battery. According to HONOR, we can achieve a usage time of up to two days, although a more realistic assessment would be a day and a half. This extra is much appreciated compared to other smartphones in this price range that hardly last the entire day, and it will allow you to relax more regarding the need to search for a plug every time the day ends.
Another aspect that has left us with a good impression is the camera. Specifically, the main lens of this model, with a resolution of 108MP and a large sensor to capture more information in low-light conditions. Night photos have a good level, and we especially liked its ability to manage scenes where lights and shadows combine, an environment where many cameras often fail. In addition, it has a 3X lossless zoom, an extra feature usually found only in top-of-the-line mobile cameras. However, it should be noted that the secondary lenses that do just enough reveal the seams in this photographic setup.
The HONOR Magic6 Lite has one of those screens that will captivate you. Starting with the commitment to a curved panel that has disappeared from many top models but adds an aesthetic value that needs to be appreciated. And with a fundamental performance leap: the Magic6 Lite has received the highest certification for the screen’s resistance to drops of up to one and a half meters. In other words, an end to one of the major handicaps that have made these types of screens less common, the risk of breaking (and the cost of repairing it). This panel has good resolution, more than 1 billion colors, and a 120Hz refresh rate. And all of this with a brightness of 1,200 nits, which facilitates viewing outdoors.
This HONOR phone arrives in our stores with a competitive price of 400 euros. In conclusion, a device that plays its cards very well and is capable of making a mark in fundamental areas such as the screen, battery, and camera. A very good option if you are looking for a phone in that price range.
