With a DXOMARK Camera score of 152, the Honor Magic5 Pro is the new leader in our ranking. It also takes the No. 1 spot in the photo ranking, thanks to outstanding photo results across all light levels. In our tests, the Magic5 Pro shone particularly in our Friends and Family use case, using fast shutter speeds to freeze subjects in motion while capturing excellent detail and keeping noise levels low.
With excellent image quality across all ranges, the zoom performances were outstanding as well, with improvements over the previous model, which was already the best device we tested for this aspect.
The Magic5 Pro also did very well for video and is currently the best Android device for recording moving images. Video clips offered accurate exposure and low noise, but while stabilization was generally effective, frame shift was noticeable when panning or moving with the camera.
