HONOR Magic5 Lite Takes the Crown as the World’s No.1 Smartphone on Battery Performance by DXOMARK.


HONOR, continues to push the boundaries of innovation with HONOR Magic5 Lite. The device has been ranked No.1 globally on battery performance by DXOMARK, the world-leading quality evaluation laboratory thus solidifying its position as the top choice for consumers seeking a reliable and high-performing device.

HONOR’s focus on hardware innovation is evident in the new HONOR Magic5 Lite, with the company developing a new, high-strength, lightweight aluminium alloy in the mid-frame bezel plates. This component has undergone tens of thousands of tests, including bending, falling, strength, impact, and stress resistance. As a result, the weight of the middle frames has been reduced by 4 grams and the thickness decreased by 15%. This allows for a lighter, stronger, and more compact device.

The Magic5 Lite’s energy density is also completely unrivaled, with a battery that is 3% thinner than ordinary energy density batteries. The device’s PCB high-density layout increases the overall utilization rate of the PCB by 5%. Furthermore, the layout of the battery has been optimized to maximize space and reduce thickness. HONOR has found a balance between performance and space usage by optimizing the antenna layout. And, in a small and slim device, HONOR has therefore managed to incorporate a 5100mAh large battery.

In addition to its hardware optimizations, HONOR has also made significant advancements in its software, implementing features that work together to conserve battery life. These include Intelligent Chip Scheduling, Application Process-Level Control, Smart Network Selection, and Abnormal Power Consumption Management. These features help to reduce battery drain, even when the user is not actively using the phone, providing a unique and unparalleled experience.

DXOMARK’s rigorous testing process has confirmed the exceptional battery performance of the HONOR Magic5 Lite. The laboratory’s testing involved four test plans, including a Typical Usage Scenario, Outdoor on the go test, Calibrated test, and Charging test. The tests were performed using robots that mimic human gestures and were designed to simulate real-world usage, capturing the usage patterns of an average user. The results confirmed the HONOR Magic5 Lite’s outstanding autonomy, with more than 3 full days of moderate use, and outstanding efficiency during discharge, making it the top choice for consumers who are seeking a reliable and high-performing device.

Olivier Simon, Deputy CTO and Battery Department Director of DXOMARK.

“The HONOR Magic5 Lite’s battery performed remarkably well during our autonomy tests, lasting 74 hours when used moderately. In addition, the device’s discharge currents were very low across all use cases, which shows the engineering effort that went into optimizing performance,”

Bond Zhang, CEO at HONOR UK.

“At HONOR, we are committed to delivering the best user experience possible, and the HONOR Magic5 Lite’s exceptional battery performance is a testament to that commitment, We are proud to offer a smartphone that promises an uninterrupted and seamless experience for our users, and we are thrilled to see the device receive recognition as the No.1 smartphone on battery performance by DXOMARK.”

The HONOR Magic5 Lite is part of HONOR Magic5 series of smartphones that are going to be presented on MWC 2023 in Barcelona. The HONOR Magic5 Lite will be available to pre-order from 21st February 2023 at www.hihonor.com/uk/phones/magic5lite.
