Is Honor 50 smartphone good to buy for daily use? (Complete Review)

The Honor 50 is an odd bird. The design is very elegant and the 120Hz OLED screen is a real gem, but on the other hand, the camera system is on par with the competition. The phone runs fast and smooth, even though it doesn’t include a flagship-grade chip. The lack of a microSD card is a bad thing, especially when storage options start at 128GB. There’s a 66W fast-charging brick in the retail box, which does a good job of topping up the 4,300mAh battery, but there’s no wireless charging.


The design of the honor 50 is reminiscent of the days when curved fronts and backs were all the rage. It’s still an eye-catching design, although I found the curved screen frustrating to use without a case since you’re constantly touching the screen with your palm while holding the phone.

There are only two buttons on the right side of the frame, which are plastic by the way. The volume rocker and power button. And because the front and back of the phone are curved, the side frames are thin, as are the keys. It digs a little in your palm, but the included clear case more than makes up for all of the above shortcomings.


The 6.57-inch OLED display looks beautiful, but that’s not surprising. The Honor 50’s screen is great — the color calibration is excellent, the color temperature is perfect, the brightness is more than adequate, and you have a modern 120Hz refresh rate, plus a 300Hz touch sampling rate.

Camera and Audio

If you like rich cameras, you’ll love the Honor 50. There are four snappers on the back – a main 108MP wide-angle lens in the top circle and four additional cameras at the bottom. There’s an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP dedicated macro lens, and a 2MP “bokeh” lens. The real-life advantage of the latter two is questionable, but let’s go to the sample and see what.

The main camera produces high-quality images, and it uses quad-binning technology. Given the difficult conditions, the photos turned out pretty well, even though the colors tended to be oversaturated. The ultra-wide lens lacks dynamic range and is a bit soft.

Software and Performance

The Honor 50 runs Honor’s proprietary Magic UI 4.2 on top of Android 11. Of course, the big news here is that Google Mobile Services exists, and the device feels like a regular Android phone. The UI experience is great, close to stock, and you can also customize the home screen to your liking – you can choose a drawer style, or put all your apps on the home screen.


In the ending words, the HONOR 50 ticks most of the boxes for a solid mid-range smartphone, but there are some compromises. First of all, the excellent 120Hz OLED display will be a joy for multimedia consumption, and the unique design on the back is dizzying. Plus, the Snapdragon 778G on this phone is a solid performer and can handle tasks with ease.
