The Little Magic is an excellent budget cube. No longer the best one but still good. Out of the box, it's a little too flexible and unstable but that can be improved with setup. So, why not five stars? Because other cubes, like the Kylin v2m and Yulong v2m have come along, are pre-magnetized and perform better. The Little Magic is right up there if you magnetize it yourself but, out of the box, not quite as good.

The King of the Budget cubes
What else i can say about the King of budget cubes
Simply is amaizing for the price
If you are a begginer this is your first option
If you are speedcuber put some magnets
This is could be your backup cube

Grows on you...
I didn’t like this cube at first but it’s growing on me. It’s pretty unstable due to its speed, lightness and lack of magnets. It will slow you down if you’re used to more advanced “modern” magnetic speedcubes. It’s pretty nice though. One thing I actually DO like a lot is the sort of “matte” texture to it. I’ve heard others diss it for that but I like it. It’s a good cube to practice on because you have to be more precise with your turns and handling. A magnetic version of this would be awesome.

Fast, cheap, smooth
This cube is very good for only 3 dollars. The only bad thing is that it has no magnets, but for 3 dollars, you can’t really have magnets.

BEST Budget 3x3!
Man, when I ordered this cube, I wasn't expecting anything for 2.99. BUT, I WAS WRONG. This performs similar to cubes more expensive than these. It features SMOOTH turning and corner cutting is amazing. Great cube from Yuxin.

yuxin little magic 3x3
This cube is very meh, Out of the box it felt very cheap and blocky,but after lubing it with some Maru lube it became only a bit better. I would say if you are a beginner,and have some Maru lube on hand get this cube, but if you are a high end speedcube buyer, no do not get this cube,stick to something like the GAN air um.

Loose otb but great!
OOTB it was pretty loose but after several hundred solves, some tightening and heavy lube on the core and pieces it can definitely hang with the best of whats out there.

This is an amazing budget cube it can cornercut anywhere, and is super fast. However it does come a little loose, but what I think is most exciting about this cube is the price.

It's a good cube, I gotta say that, but the stickers were peeling off when I got it. Thank you CubeDepot for hooking me up with another one to replace the peeled stickers.

Faster than my GTS2 and I like it a lot. The only thing is the stickers are terrible; they make my fingers hurt a bit after about 1h or so and after just 2 days their edges are starting to peel off slightly, making it even more uncomfortable. But for 5 buck it's top and I'm sure they allow the budget for proper stickers.

Pops too much
The turning is scratchy, quick, and dry. It doesn't lock up much because of the good corner-cutting. The sticker quality isn't that good; when they start to chip a little bit white sticker material is exposed. The bad part about this cube is this it pops. The cube comes very very loose, and I had to tighten it all the time. The Yuxin little Magic pops about once every 8-9 solves, so I do not recommend it. If you want a good cube for this price, get the QiYi Warrior W.

I've tried one of these before, and they're pretty good and fast. The one I got was for a friend, it was scratchy and fast. The shades were a bit dull though. The sticker quality wasn't great, but I think they were full-fitted.

Don't judge a cube by it's cover
At first, I was skeptical about this cube. I didn't watch any reviews about it. But because it was only 4 bucks, I decided. To buy it. I WAS SO WRONG ABOUT THIS CUBE. This cube is one of the best on the market, not just one of the best budget cubes. 10/10 IGN would recommend.

Great except for the peeling stickers
Great cube except for the stickers which have started peeling within a week of getting it. Would give 5 stars otherwise.

Stickers don't stick
Got it on Friday. Corners of stickers started to peel and curl on Saturday. Probably better to go with a stickerless version. Not happy with that part of it. It turns nice and tension is easily adjustable, but can't get over the failure of the stickers.

I LOVE IT
This cube would definitely be my main if I had one. My friend at school has one and it would be my main, but I haven't ordered the cube yet. I might get one at my next comp, but overall, if I had this cube it would be my main.
2017-12-06 02:46:44 UTC
The cube got here at the promised time and in very good condition, it is very smooth which helps a lot with the time also very cute
The best part is that it is very cheap

Yuxin Little Magic
This cube is best described as a cross between the flexibility of a GTS and the scratchiness of a Warrior W. The scratchiness, however, goes away after a couple hundred solves. It is very very quick, buttery smooth, clicky and has a hollowish almost cheaper feel. Line to line corner cutting, on my tensions, which are fairly loose, is effortless. Stickerless shades are great, and have very good contrast. Caps are stable and are almost hard to get off. The screws are a little weird, so a normal screwdriver might not work.
I'm not particularly picky about my cubes, so if I'm feeling annoyed with my Air, which is my main, then switching to this doesn't feel like the 17 dollar drop that it is and I can still get great results. It's a great cube,

Best 3x3 budget cube ever
This trumps every budget 3x3 so far. It's smooth and very fast. I do not think that lube is really necessary for it. However, I did lube the core because of spring noises. I did not lube the pieces because of how smooth and fast it already is.
This is a must have for any cuber.

Great budget cube
This cube is a great budget cube. It fast but clicky. I would suggest this cube to anyone mainly for beginners or intermediate. the color schemes on the cube is a little weird but it stilll does the job. For the price, I do suggest this cube.

Yuxin 3x3 Review
Great puzzle. Locks up a bit and feels a bit cheap but ore than that, it has great corner cutting and is very fast.

Very good budget cube
The Yuxin Little Magic is a very good budget cube, however it still has a pooping and severe lockup problem when doing a little bit over line-to-line reverse corner cutting.
It can cut over 45 degrees forward and line-to-line reverse and is overall very stable compared to my GTS2 M

when I first got it, I did like 300 solves. it got very fast and rattly, and hard to solve on, but after I fully lubed it, it got very smooth and controllable. For 5 dollars, it's really gud.

Is there such thing as a high end budget cube?
This cube is my favorite cube. It's my OH main and backup to my Gans UM. I want to put magnets in this cube because it's so amazing and see if I can make it my main, yes over the Gans Air UM. This cube is the best. It's smooth turning and doesn't lock up. It's size is perfect for smaller hands.
