Gaming phones have really matured in recent years, with ASUS’ ROG, Lenovo’s Legion, Xiaomi’s Black Shark, and Nubia’s RedMagic all offering compelling performance-packed handsets for gamers. Oppo’s even rumored to be joining the party soon. Here in the US, RedMagic is the gaming phone value champ, and this year’s $599 RedMagic 6 is no exception. It basically updates last year’s $579 RedMagic 5G with a 165Hz display and a Snapdragon 888. That’s all well and good, but what got our attention recently is the $499 RedMagic 6R -- a super-affordable Snapdragon 888 handset with a 144Hz screen and capacitive shoulder buttons that looks and feels more like...

For better or for worse, gaming phones are a thing. What started out as a trickle of pricey, specialized handsets from established gaming brands like Razer and Asus ROG has turned into a steady stream of affordable, tricked out smartphones from Chinese sub-brands like Xiaomi’s Black Shark and Nubia’s RedMagic. Which brings us to today’s review of the Snapdragon 865-equipped RedMagic 5G ($579) -- a 5G handset that undercuts the OnePlus 8 ($699) yet offers similar features and a blazing fast 144Hz AMOLED display. If you’re not familiar with Nubia, it started out as a sub-brand of Chinese giant ZTE, but became an independent business in 2015. Since then, it’s been... Read more...
About a year ago we talked about the Nubia Red Magic Gaming phone aimed at mobile gamers and it was an interesting option. Prior to the Red Magic device, Nubia unveiled the Red Magic Mars gaming phone. Nubia is back with its latest smartphone aimed at mobile gamers, and like past Magic devices, the Nubia Red Magic 3 is packed with serious hardware. One of the key features for the smartphone is the 6.65-inch Full HD AMOLED display that has a refresh rate of 90Hz and supports DC dimming and HDR. The SoC inside the Magic 3 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, and it is paired with 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of storage. There are three additional versions of the Nubia Red Magic 3 gaming phone that each... Read more...
Smartphone makers are starting to crank out purpose-built gaming phones, and the latest to join the fray is Nubia, a sub-brand of ZTE, one of China's leading telecom equipment manufacturers. Nubia's new Red Magic Mars is a high-end handset powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and up to 10GB of RAM, which is 2GB more than the Razer Phone 2 and ASUS ROG Phone. The 10GB model is paired with 256GB of onboard storage. There are two other SKUs, one with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and the other with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. All three models boast a 6-inch display with a 2160x1080 resolution (18:9 aspect ratio) and 2.5D curved glass, dual SIM support, and a rear fingerprint sensor.... Read more...
When it comes to flagship smartphones that have been released so far in 2018, the trend has been to maximize screen real estate while minimizing bezels. For most, that has meant including a display notch to accommodate the selfie camera, various sensors and speaker. Other manufacturers have opted for more complex arrangements including sliding mechanisms that hide the selfie camera when not in use. The Nubia X goes a completely different route to maintain slim bezels all around while also retaining an extremely high screen-to-body ratio; and it does so without failure-prone sliding mechanisms. Instead of putting a forward-facing selfie camera above the display, the Nubia X... Read more...
When it comes to gaming on the PC side of things, RGB lighting is all the rage. RGB lighting on cases, fans, keyboards, motherboards and video cards are commonplace, and oftentimes expected. In the relatively new space of Android gaming phones, RGB lighting effects haven’t really been deployed... until now. Enter Nubia's Red Magic gaming phone. Nubia is a division of ZTE, and the Red Magic is a sleek smartphone with a black anodized aluminum unibody chassis. On the back is where the "magic" happens, with a vertical RGB strip that runs down the center of the phone below the fingerprint reader. The strip is capable of displaying 16 million colors and comes with four lighting modes to... Read more...
Smartphones aimed squarely at a gaming audience are quite rare, with the most prominent example being the Razer Phone, which was released last year with a 5.7-inch 120Hz Sharp-manufactured display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and a whopping 8GB of RAM. However, Nubia is looking to potentially one-up the Razer Phone with its own gaming smartphone. The new Nubia smartphone is powered by the new Snapdragon 845 processor, which will be featured in all of this year's hot flagship devices. As expected, it touts 8GB of RAM and comes with a generous 128GB of internal storage (a microSD slot can further your storage if you need it). Other specs include a fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, and... Read more...
