Honor MagicBook 14 with Intel Core i7-1165G7 review

20 June 2021
We've already reviewed two Ryzen incarnations of this laptop, time to look at one with Intel's new 10nm processors, which pack plenty of punch.

Sort by:

No independent numeric keypad, a "big NO" for me.

That's better than some so called ultra book,

If you use office works in Gaming laptop it won't over heat, you get huge battery which can last all day.

Really appreciate if GSMArena would review laptops or other computer parts as deep and elaborate as phone reviews.

Most office workers, however, don't want those annoyances - otherwise everyone would have been using a gaming laptop for work.

Alternatively, you can pay more and get those that pack a larger battery in a slimmer, more compact body and come with better quality panels, but.. keep it in mind that they are usually much more expensive compared to any ultrabooks in the market.

P-CHM, 20 Jun 2021Or you can buy a good gaming laptop with a good display. So... morenah bro don't please don't suggest an oled screen for content creation as it results in false colors I did my editing collage project in an oled and boom during projector presentation it looked 180° turn( it became dull) but the external HDMI you suggested is really good.

Bz, 20 Jun 2021Haha i would never buy a gaming laptop for content creation... moreOr you can buy a good gaming laptop with a good display. Some even boast OLEDs, you know...
Or even better: plug your laptop to a high quality monitor. And there you go, best of both worlds.

rizki1, 20 Jun 2021maybe they want simple laptop but with latest hardware? idk... moreYes can happen. For example I want a premium laptop with great hardware and stylish look with metal instead of cheap plastic. But I prefer classic laptops instead of gaming ones. Weight isn't that important for me. It can be really heavy.

rizki1, 20 Jun 2021maybe they want simple laptop but with latest hardware? idk... moreI don't get that either. Gaming laptop is better at everything, only to lose on weight.

The only reason I can come of is that they try to put it as light weight, compact, premium material... So that they can charge more for inferior specification.

And I don't know why they put a lot of emphasis on weight and thinness, for a officer worker, the distance they have to carry is only from house to car, and from car to office. And I wonder if that distance can even be more than 100m?

yes, but can it run Crysis?

Fan noise? Whats that?
Temperatures? Burns from typing on melting keys? That would never happen.

So no testing is necessary.

Right?

Notebookcheck? Whats that?

Please do a better job, gsmarena.

It's better to buy a gaming laptop at this price range lately there had been many thin and light weight gaming laptops with better specs and beautiful design

I don't understand why but these business or thin and light laptops are overpriced when compared to gaming laptop having more Powerful specs .

Chinese companies entering laptop space is good for consumers
