Mobile all-rounder. Due to its small dimensions and low weight, the MagicBook View 14 is ideal for mobile use. Despite its compact size, the 14-incher also features a powerful processor. A high-resolution touch display handles image reproduction.

Honor MagicBook View 14

Once again, the current Honor laptops are rather difficult to get for European and American consumers. The manufacturer’s global homepage only mentions a few official distribution countries for the MagicBook View 14 besides China. According to the French website, the version we reviewed with the Core i7-11390H, 16 GB of RAM, a 512 GB SSD, and a 90 Hz panel costs around 1,150 Euros (~$1,307), which is neither cheap nor particularly expensive for the hardware installed.

The View 14’s competitors include other streamlined 14-inch laptops like the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7i Pro, which also features a glossy high-resolution touchscreen and a CPU that isn’t “properly” power-saving. Most contenders tend to opt for a 28-watt chip, which promises (even) longer battery runtimes. These include, for example, the MSI Prestige 14 Evo, the LG Gram 14, and the in-house MagicBook 14. All the laptops mentioned appear in the tables as comparison devices.

In terms of quality, the View 14 leaves no room for criticism. The aluminum chassis cuts a very high-quality and pleasingly sturdy figure. Consequently, the surfaces only flex a bit under strong pressure (e.g. in the keyboard area).

The device’s design looks simple and elegant at the same time. Especially the display, which feels like it has no bezels, looks very modern, although the screen’s glossy finish turns it into a real fingerprint magnet and makes cleaning it a frequent task.

The wide hinge construction makes a good impression. Although the base unit sometimes rocks a bit when you open the laptop, the desired position is maintained solidly. On the other hand, the maximum opening angle (approx. 135°) is something that the manufacturer could fine-tune a bit.

One of the biggest (visual) highlights is the slim build. While the footprints are only comparable to a certain extent due to the varying display aspect ratios, the View 14 boasts the lowest thickness within the test field with 14.5 mm on paper (without the case feet). The Honor laptop is heavier than the competition, although it’s still comfortable to carry around 1.5 kg. According to the homepage, the 14-incher is also available in the Blue Hour and Space Gray colors.

Ports

In terms of connectivity, Honor follows the “Apple trend” towards increasingly fewer interfaces. This means that you don’t only have to do without an RJ45 port (which would also have been a bit cramped in terms of space), but also without a card reader, a Kensington lock slot, and a dedicated DisplayPort.

Three USB ports is also pretty scarce, especially since one of the available Type-C ports has to be used for the included power adapter when charging or using the laptop plugged in. At least both Type-C ports support the DisplayPort function, which means that up to three monitors can theoretically be connected together with the HDMI port. Another highlight is the fact that one of the Type-C ports supports Thunderbolt 4/USB 4. The package is rounded off by a combined audio jack.

Since all the ports are located in the rear half of the laptop, there’s enough headroom on the sides when an external mouse is used.

A wireless module from Intel handles wireless communications. Similar to the competition, Honor uses the Wi-Fi 6 AX201, a very fast and technically modern chip that performs particularly well in the View 14. In our Wi-Fi test (1 m distance to the Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router), the device achieves first place for both sending and receiving data.

The webcam is surprisingly good by laptop standards. This isn’t surprising, because Honor doesn’t simply use a 720p or 1080p resolution; instead, a 5 MP webcam is used, something that is definitely noticeable in our sample photos (keywords: image sharpness). Color accuracy is higher than what is usually found in most laptops as well, but you should, of course, not expect anything top-notch here, either. Great: In contrast to the MagicBook 14, the webcam isn’t hidden in the keyboard (“nostril camera”), but it sits in the traditional position instead – albeit without a privacy shutter.

The power button, which is inconveniently placed right in the keyboard area, can be used as a fingerprint reader if desired.

As usual, the box contains only a few items. Besides a pleasantly light and compact 65-watt power adapter, you will only find a few info booklets.

We have mixed feelings when it comes to maintenance. Although the 10 Torx screws can be removed relatively quickly and easily with the right screwdriver, the bottom cover still sits very tightly and has to be pried out using a flat tool and considerable force, which might scare off many amateur or less experienced users (we almost gave up when we trying to open it out of fear of damaging the case or the hardware).

Once you have made it inside, you will see a very tidy layout. The SSD and wireless module are available, as well as the battery and the cooling system (dual-fan solution). On the other hand, it’s a pity that Honor didn’t opt for RAM slots to expand memory. The integrated 16 GB are soldered, which isn’t a good idea when it comes to durability and repairs, and it’s a big minus point for us.

Unfortunately, we can only assess the keyboard layout to a limited extent, since Honor sent us a model with a Russian keyboard, which differs from the usual QUERTY and QUERTZ layouts of the US/EU market at times (at least in terms of secondary and tertiary assignments). However, some regrettable details, such as the combined Insert/Delete key, are likely to apply to all models.

In general, the keyboard delivers a decent to good performance. Although the key travel is quite short and the stroke could be a bit stronger and better defined, we would still describe the feedback as sufficient and suitable for everyday use. Some users might not be completely satisfied with the white backlight, which can be adjusted in three levels, because it lacks intensity.

Honor MagicBook View 14

There’s hardly anything to criticize when it comes to the touchpad. On the one hand, it’s exceptionally large for a 14-inch device (12 x 7.2 cm), and on the other hand, its gliding properties are very good due to the extremely smooth (almost too smooth) surface. Accuracy and gesture support are also satisfactory. The same goes for the built-in click areas, although the rigidity in the lower right corner leaves something to be desired.

Users looking for a laptop with a touchscreen have come to the right place with the MagicBook View 14. The 14-inch display, which has a 3:2 aspect ratio and a great screen-to-body ratio (almost 90%), provides 10-point multi-touch functionality. A resolution of 2520×1680 is also rather uncommon in the laptop segment. Although the amount of pixels chosen by Honor is a bit too high in relation to the display size (we recommend a Windows scaling of 150%), the high resolution ensures an extremely sharp picture.

If you don’t have a problem with glare or generally prefer (darker) interiors, the View 14’s image quality shows its best side. Thanks to the low black level (0.24 cd/m²), the contrast ratio is over 1,700:1, and it ranks first in the test field, just like the brightness. The color-space coverage (99% sRGB) and color accuracy (see Calman screenshots) are also appealing.

Viewing angles are at the typical IPS level, which means that they are between good and very good. Response times are less spectacular, though. Just under 21 ms for black-to-white and 33 ms for gray-to-gray are in the laptop midfield. One positive aspect is that Honor uses 90 Hz instead of the usual 60 Hz for office/all-rounder devices.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession – a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.

Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 20945 (minimum: 5 – maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Given the light and slim case, the MagicBook View 14 packs quite a bit of power – and it does so without a dedicated graphics card. 16 GB of RAM should also be enough for the coming years, as long as you don’t have to deal with particularly demanding application scenarios. The somewhat tight 512 GB of SSD storage can be replaced with a larger M.2 model if necessary.

In the preinstalled PC Manager, which serves as an update center among other things, you can choose between two power or performance profiles. All our tests were performed using the Balanced mode.

The Core i7-11390H made it to our editorial office and through the benchmark course for the first time with the View 14. Like its other 35-watt counterparts from the Tiger Lake generation, the 11390H is rather rarely seen, as laptop manufacturers usually prefer to install a “full-fledged” 45-watt model or a power-saving 28-watt model. The 35-watt lineup attempts to combine the advantages of both categories (good performance coupled with solid energy efficiency).

From a purely technical standpoint, the i7-11390H, which is manufactured in a 10 nm process, makes use of 12 MB of L3 cache and four cores that can process eight threads in parallel via Hyper-Threading. Despite the slightly higher clock rates (3.4 – 5.0 GHz), the MagicBook View 14 barely manages to overtake the Core i7-11370H in the IdeaPad Slim 7i Pro (3.3 – 4.8 GHz) in the CPU tests. After a while, the former’s performance even drops below that of the Lenovo device in the Cinebench loop. However, the 11390H easily competes with the 28-watt chips of the other contenders and can usually outperform them by double-digit percentages.

The View 14 is at the top of the podium in terms of system performance. 5,475 points in PCMark 10 represent the first place among the comparison devices. Also subjectively, the operating system responds as fast as you’d expect from a modern device in the 1,000-Euro (~$1,136) range.

An NVMe drive from Western Digital is used for mass storage. The WDC SN730 is only marginally beaten in the benchmarks by the Phison SSD found in the MSI Prestige 14 Evo. With the exception of the LG Gram (SK Hynix), the rest of the comparison laptops are also equipped with a Western Digital model.

The Core i7-11390H houses a DirectX-12 capable graphics chip named Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 96 EUs. It is used to good effect in the MagicBook View 14. For the most part, it’s enough for second place in the GPU course, again just behind the MSI Prestige 14 Evo. Compared with the MagicBook 14, which only has one fan, the 3D performance is almost 30% higher despite the identical graphics chip.

The 14-incher isn’t really made for gaming. Although many titles can certainly be played at reduced resolutions and lower details (minimum to medium settings in 720p or 1080p), some games, mainly recent ones with high graphics requirements, tend to crash or generate error messages as soon as they are launched. DeathloopFar Cry 6Guardians of the galaxyBattlefield 2042, and Halo Infinite, for example, were problematic in the test.

In terms of emissions, the Honor device behaves quite inconspicuously. Let’s take for example noise development, which amounts to a quiet 26 to 29 dB(A) in idle usage, and a fairly audible but not annoyingly loud 38 to 45 dB(A) under load. With these rates, the View 14 is roughly in line with the competition, and it especially reminds us of its 14-inch sibling, the MagicBook 14.

Temperature development is also kept within limits. We were only able to get a maximum of 41 °C (~106 °F) on the top side of the chassis and 46 °C (~115 °F) on the bottom side in the stress test with the FurMark and Prime95 tools. Especially the MSI Prestige 14 gets noticeably warmer here. The entire chassis remains comfortably cool at around 24 °C (~75 °F) in idle mode.

In addition, the components don’t experience overheating, either. Although the 90 °C (~194 °F) mark is briefly reached in 3D mode, the temperature of the Core i7-11390H and the Iris Xe Graphics G7 stabilizes at a moderate 60 to 70 °C (140 to 158 °F) over time.

(±) The average temperature for the upper side under maximal load is 35.9 °C / 97 F, compared to the average of 30.6 °C / 87 F for the devices in the class Subnotebook.

(±) The maximum temperature on the upper side is 41 °C / 106 F, compared to the average of 35.7 °C / 96 F, ranging from 21.4 to 58.4 °C for the class Subnotebook.

(-) The bottom heats up to a maximum of 46 °C / 115 F, compared to the average of 39.4 °C / 103 F

(+) In idle usage, the average temperature for the upper side is 24 °C / 75 F, compared to the device average of 30.6 °C / 87 F.

(±) Playing The Witcher 3, the average temperature for the upper side is 35 °C / 95 F, compared to the device average of 30.6 °C / 87 F.

(+) The palmrests and touchpad are reaching skin temperature as a maximum (33 °C / 91.4 F) and are therefore not hot.

(-) The average temperature of the palmrest area of similar devices was 28.3 °C / 82.9 F (-4.7 °C / -8.5 F).

While almost all laptops exhibit clear shortcomings when it comes to sound quality, the View 14 is one of very few positive exceptions.

The battery capacity is 60 Wh. This puts the View 14 in the midfield. The competition can resort to between 52 Wh (MSI Prestige 14 Evo) and 72 Wh (LG Gram 14). The latter laptop is noticeably ahead in terms of battery runtimes. According to our Wi-Fi test, the Honor laptop can browse the Internet for around 9 hours at medium display brightness – a very good result on par with the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7i Pro and the MagicBook 14.

Light, compact, and yet fast: This is how the Honor MagicBook View 14 presents itself in our review.

The 14-incher is a real all-rounder for various application areas and purposes, from office and multimedia to content creation.

The high-contrast, razor sharp, and pleasingly bright 14-inch display is complemented by good input devices and a sleek, elegant, and neatly manufactured chassis. The Core i7-11390H and the Iris Xe Graphics G7 also show to advantage excellently, although a Core i7-11370H would have been fine as well. On the other hand, we have criticisms regarding the soldered RAM that doesn’t offer an option to upgrade, and the glossy display surface, which – depending on the environment – can sometimes lead to strong and very annoying reflections.

Touch fans who aren’t put off by excessive reflections can alternatively take a look at the slightly better, but also more expensive, Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7i Pro. Users who prefer matte displays will probably prefer the MSI Prestige 14 Evo or the “normal” Honor MagicBook 14. If you’re focused on keeping the weight down, the LG Gram 14 is the first choice.

The MagicBook View 14 is only available in select countries and markets so far. Our tested version with the Core i7-11390H, 16 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD costs about 1,150 Euros (~$1,307).

I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood, growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 1990s. I was especially fascinated with computer games, even from an early age. From Monkey Island through Lands of Lore to Doom, I tried every game I could get my hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with my focus mostly being on high-performance gaming laptops.

I’ve been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that’s how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I’ve even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I’m currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
