Pros & Cons
The Honor Magic 2 brings the notch-less slider design. The motorised slider on the phone houses the cameras and other sensors, it is indeed an intelligent way of offering more screen real estate and fetching higher screen-to-body ratio. There are many elements that are path-breaking on this phone, mainly the six cameras - three on the rear and three on the front.
The only shortcoming is the durability of the slider design, we do not know how strong the mechanism is or if it can bear accidental falls. Another disadvantage would be the presence of Huawei's EMUI software on top of Android 9 Pie, which may not please many. We think that Huawei still has to work on its EMUI to make it stand with Android.

Additionally, there are other features such as AIS for image stabilisation. On the front as well, the phone bears a triple camera setup, wherein one sensor makes up for the 3D Face Unlock functionality. There is a 16MP primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and a 2MP+2MP dual lenses with f/2.4 aperture that enable 3D Face Unlock alongside adding depth to the images. One of the highlights is that there is a slider on the top panel, which houses the front cameras alongside other sensors. It automatically slides up and down when using the Face Unlock.
