The HONOR Magic6 Pro launched today for global markets. It was announced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, and we also published our review today. Having said that, the HONOR Magic6 Pro managed to break 3 records over at DxOMark, which is what we’re here to talk about.

HONOR’s new flagship is not a top-placed smartphone in the Display, Battery, and Selfie categories. It also managed to take a very high second place in the Audio department. It received a ‘Gold’ rating from DxOMark in all those categories.

The HONOR Magic6 Pro breaks three records at DxOMark, starting with the display

The HONOR Magic6 Pro scored 157 points in the Display category, thus trumping the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra (155 points), and the Google Pixel 8 Pro (154 points).

DxOMark highlighted the phone’s “accurate, reactive, and smooth touch panel”, while it also praised its “best-in-class motion management”. The company also said that the display is well-suited for different lighting conditions, and has great HDR video experience in low-light conditions. You can read more about the display section here.

Outstanding battery

The device also took first place in the battery section with 157 points. It left the HONOR Magic5 Lite 5G behind itself with 152 points, and the HONOR X7b / OPPO Find X6 Pro both of which scored 151 points.

DxOMark highlighted the “excellent indoor autonomy” of the battery, and great battery life when the display is on but you don’t use it. It also showed great results in video streaming and gaming, now to mention that it charges really fast both via a wired, and wirelessly.

Selfie camera king… according to DxOMark

The HONOR Magic6 Pro sits at the very top of the food chain in the selfie camera category too. It scored 151 points, which is two more than the iPhone 15 Pro (Max) (149 points), and a iPhone 14 Pro Max (145 points).

In this section, DxOMark praised the phone’s “accurate target exposure and wide dynamic range”. On top of that, the company said that it had a neutral white balance and fairly pleasant color rendering.

The low noise levels in bright light and indoors were also a plus for DxOMark, and the same goes for the camera’s wide depth of field. Read more about the selfie camera here.
