The base of the HONOR 200 pro design pretty much inherited from the previous HONOR 100 series, maintaining it’s slim looking design and a slim plastic body frame, however it is still elegantly nice to look at and holding it stills gives the user the good grip and feel to it. Specifically the back of the phone is made of glass, and it is dual curve to give a high end looks to it, and easy to grip on with great comfort. The camera island follows the similar design of the HONOR 100 series but slightly larger due to the new camera sensors that HONOR has included with the HONOR 200 pro. With that said, even with such a slim 8.2mm body, HONOR still be able to fit in a USB C port for charging and data, Wireless Qi charging, dual microphone, dual speakers and infra red sensor with an overall weight of 199 grams only.

The HONOR 200 pro will be available in two colors for the Malaysian market, Ocean Cyan and Moonlight White. All models will come with NFC and it is IP65 dust and water splash resistant.

Display & Audio

The HONOR 200 pro display hosts a Quad-Curved Floating Screen that shows premium when glanced on it. The screen is a 6.78 inch, 1.5K resolution display that has a dynamic refresh rate of up to 120Hz maximum. Furthermore the OLED display is bright at a maximum of 4000nits and it is also feature dynamic dimming to protect the user’s eye, whether you are reading in a dark place or a bright room. The colors displayed is as vibrant and accurate with fast movement within movies are easily adaptable and even when viewing it from the sides, the images hardly faded or washed out while alleviating eye fatigue. Other than that, the HONOR 200 pro supports full HDR10 and wide color gamut. The HONOR 200 pro gained full widevine L1 certifications, basically all round HD streaming on DRM apps like Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Going towards the audio portion, the HONOR 200 pro has dual speakers setup, giving it a fuller audio experience. Now most of the audio is tuned and driven by HONOR Histen, by using the speakers on the phone, it can deliver good audio quality with barely any crackles observed, and this is will the full volume pumped up to 200%, able to project audio across medium size room with ease. Should you need more tuning, there is several pre-sets you can choose from via the Sound Settings, still giving some options for the users, or if you wanted a more personal audio experience, you still can connect to your favourite headphones via USB C or connect via Bluetooth on your existing TWS.


Despite the slim form factor, HONOR fitted the rear camera with two 50MP portrait and telephoto lens with OIS and EIS along with an additional 12MP ultrawide lens. Over to the front camera, the HONOR 200 pro has a 50MP Front Camera with wide lens as well. If you are curious, the main camera uses the OmniVision OV50H CMOS Image Sensor with Quad Bayer filter array.

Now to be honest, day or night photo is mostly not a problem with the HONOR 200 pro and able to capture images with close to what you can see in real life with very good dynamic range over day time, adequate low light optimisation and close accurate color and vibrancy, usually I just take the picture in automatic mode and for the most part, it seems pretty much does the job good and well. Just keep the zoom up to 2.5X, anything above that level may resulted in less sharper images. Another thing to take note is although day images can get you sharp images, during night time, images sometimes can be a little bit soft, however shadows and identifications of objects and subjects remains good and optimal, this is also thanks to the AI image processing within the hardware and software.

HONOR teamed up with the renowned Studio Harcourt bringing in over 90 years of classic and modern styles to the HONOR 200 pro, giving you three portrait option, Vibrant, Color and Classic, all three gives different vibes and user can just simply select, snap and its all done by AI and the user creativity and emulate the signature looks to the image. The modes tested does reflect well and this give a new way of snapping your images.

For video recording, the HONOR 200 pro is capable of recording up to 4K at 60FPS while for the front camera you can record up to 4K, limited to 30FPS. In other words, this is another good candidate should you wanted to use this phone as a Vlogging phone, moreover the rear camera does have both EIS and OIS, providing steady recording even on the move. On our testing, the frame pacing is good with very little unnoticeable stutters.

Performance, Software, Experience

The HONOR 200 Pro is perhaps, among the very few phones right now that has the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8s Gen3. Well you can say that the SOC is around the performance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 and just slightly below par from the mainline Snapdragon 8 Gen3 with updated latest SOC features. Well, you still get a quite comfortable 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM with an additional 12GB of virtual memory, and 512 of UFS3 internal storage with no option for expandable storage, however that seems to be the norm and for the majority, that should be fine since you still can upload files and sync with any of the cloud services out there. The HONOR C1+ RF Enhanced Chip that is only available from the main flagship series is now present in the HONOR 200 Pro, bringing in enhanced antenna transmission and reception, giving the phone a better boost on data and call quality without sacrificing on more batter usage consumption.

On to the software, the HONOR 200 pro is powered by Magic OS 8 with Android 14. Most of the enhancements still remains. From a usability standpoint, the stock Android UI remains familiar with added essential tools and apps from MagicOS like RAM Turbo, Game mode, AI assistant (for text extraction from images), themes, storage management, Smart sensing (for quick face recognition), Magic Capsule (on notification glance) HONOR Connect for continuity between HONOR devices and more. Technically all the listed above is most probably what most user will enjoy and use. On top of that all of the latest connectivity are still offered and available such as NFC with pay support, WiFi 6, Bluetooth, GPS, infra red for controlling different devices and of course 5G connection with dual SIM.

With the 5200MaH battery capacity, usage will last about 13 hours that translate to a whole day of use, maybe another charge in the late evening will get you going again. Charging from empty to 100% with the included HONOR 100W Supercharge takes about less than 50 minutes, which is good enough over my daily usage and it is within expectation. You can also alternatively charge wirelessly, which is pretty fast at 66w. Game works well too with Genshin Impact able to hold upwards over 55FPS for about 20 minutes.


The HONOR 200 Pro does a good job on this part, combining balance in power and performance in this part, as reflected on the benchmarks against some of the smartphones.
