Honor Magic 2 Video Review: Addictive Slider, Bezel-less Screen

Honor Magic 2 Video Review: Addictive Slider, Bezel-less Screen

One of the best things about the pre/early smartphone era was physical mechanisms like sliders and flippers. It was very satisfying to have a mechanism to fidget with all the time. Most smartphones now are smooth, featureless slabs, but the war against bezels has brought back some of these mechanisms. The Honor Magic 2 is one such device, and our own TK Bay has published his full video review.

The slider for the front-facing camera is an addictive feature to play with, but TK argues this phone has a lot more to offer. Watch his full review below to get an idea of what the Honor Magic 2 brings to the table. You can also check out the chart below to get the rundown on the specifications.
