84.9% Nubia RedMagic 7S Pro review - The gaming smartphone with integrated fan and UDC | Notebookcheck
The RedMagic 7S Pro is a thoroughbred gamer, which is not only equipped with a fast SoC, but also promises high frame rates and sampling rates. Additional sensor keys are supposed to improve the gaming experience, while the integrated fan keeps the frames stable. A direct hit?
ZTE Nubia Red Magic 7S Pro Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The ZTE nubia Red Magic 7S Pro smartphone is a true flagship gaming phone that has everything a gamer needs, which includes high-performance graphics, a decent screen, and long-lasting battery life. But at the same time, those gaming-centric features can be a dual edge sword as you won’t receive decent camera quality nor does the screen has punchy and vibrant colors. The gaming-centric phones have pretty niched users and only tech enthusiasts and gamers prefer this phone. But if you are looking for better alternative options, we will recommend you the Nothing Phone One, which has better specs with a robust gameplay experience. But for this phone, you have to increase your budget a little more. However, the final decision is up to you, so pick the best option according to your desire.

80% RedMagic 7S Pro Review: Superlative Gaming Hardware For $729!
Source: Android Headlines English
The RedMagic 7S Pro base version in Obsidian Black is one of the best gaming smartphones you can buy in 2022. For $729 you get top-of-the-line performance, excellent audio options, stellar thermal management, a fast and responsive display, and very good battery life. I am quite happy that Nubia has lowered the base price by $70 making this one of the cheapest gaming smartphones out there. Granted, the camera experience could be better. On the flip side, Nubia has improved the software bugs from the previous versions. So, for gaming enthusiasts with a limited budget, the RedMagic 7S Pro is an excellent choice in 2022.

RedMagic 7S Pro review: the best gaming smartphone you can buy right now
Source: Irish Mirror English
The active cooling system is superb, and while you can hear the fan it’s a better scenario than the SoC throttling and slowing down your game play. Which is great as this is the fastest Android phone I have ever used, and the ultra-high benchmark scores backed up my real-world experience. I also love the in-display selfie camera which results in a much more immersive experience. The phone’s speakers are loud and add to that enjoyment – although I wish they were front facing – and you get support for aptX Bluetooth codecs and a 3.5mm headphone jack. If you love mobile gaming, then you will love RedMagic 7S Pro.

Nubia Red Magic 7S Pro review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Red Magic 7S Pro is a great gaming phone, but there are plenty of reasons to hesitate before buying one. Gaming performance from the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is superb, especially when combined with class-leading 960Hz touch sampling and a 120Hz OLED screen. But the cheaper regular 7S has a higher 165Hz refresh rate and avoids the headache of an under-display fingerprint sensor. Battery life is impressive, but you miss out on the ultra-fast 135W charging in China and there’s still no wireless charging. The cameras are also unreliable, while the muted aesthetic and bulky design won’t please everyone. Even if you’re set on buying a gaming handset, the Red Magic 7S Pro is only the right option if you use your phone in a very specific way. For everyone else, there are better alternatives.

80% Nubia RedMagic 7S Pro review: It's insanely fast
Source: Android Central English
The RedMagic 7S Pro is the first phone from the company that I feel comfortable recommending to "non-gamers." It's crazy fast, has a bright and beautiful display, passable cameras, and a great price. It's not the phone for everyone. In fact, if I read this review and hadn't tried it, I might think it wasn't a good fit for me — there are no bezels to speak of, I really like wireless charging, and usually prefer smaller phones that fit better in my shirt pocket. But I did get to try it, and I can say that all the pros far outweigh the cons for me. I still believe I'll keep my current phone for at least another year, but if I were in the market to buy something new, I would definitely have the RedMagic 7S Pro on my radar. It's like nothing I've ever used before.

95% Redmagic 7S Pro Review: Cooler Where It Matters
Source: Make Use Of English
The Redmagic 7S Pro has come a long way. It started as a niche product only gamers would appreciate and has turned into a mainstream phone that both power users and gamers can use. It's useful as a daily driver, with its reasonable dimensions and weight, plus a functional launcher. If you don't like the Redmagic version of Android 12, you can always download another launcher from the Google Play Store. But only the Redmagic 7S Pro can deliver this level of power, performance, and flexibility for its users.

80% nubia Red Magic 7S Pro review
Source: GSM Arena English
The Red Magic 7S Pro retains a competitive price point incorporating flagship-level hardware and a great gaming experience with plenty of features. It's undoubtedly one of the most accessible gaming smartphones on the market. And this year, the Red Magic 7S Pro finally improves upon battery endurance and is now comparable to other flagship devices. Sadly, though, some issues are hard to neglect, and they keep us from giving Red Magic phones an excellent score and recommending them over the years. The most prominent issues are the display's lack of auto brightness boost, making it hard to use outdoors, the outdated camera setup and the poor selfie performance. We can see the argument for current technological constraints of under-display cameras - that's a trade-off users have to consider. But nubia's refusal to upgrade the obsolete main 64MP sensor and the unsatisfactory, to say the least, 8MP ultrawide camera just don't sit well with a flagship smartphone, even if it's a gaming one.

80% Nubia Red Magic 7s Pro review
Source: Techradar English
The 7s Pro combines loads of power, a great screen, a confident gaming design, and mighty speakers with a relatively polished UI. The camera isn't best-in-class, and the in-display selfie camera quality is poor, but the novelty of a notch-free all-screen front, matched with the phone's winning specs should appeal to gamers, and make up for some rough-around-the-edges interface blips.

Source: Tom's Guide English
The RedMagic 7S Pro is almost identical to the previous RedMagic 7 Pro, but with a more powerful chipset. The device remains a great pick for mobile gamers who don't want to spend too much on a gaming-focused handset though, as long as you don't mind the weak cameras or strangely-worded UI elements.

If you're looking for a quality gaming phone with top-of-the-line performance, the RedMagic 7S Pro offers exactly that. You'll have to live with sub-par cameras, but the gaming experience is second to none, and that's what this phone is all about.

80% Nubia Red Magic 7S Pro Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
You won’t find an Android phone that’s more powerful than the Red Magic 7S Pro right now. Its Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip, coupled with a monstrous cooling system and bags of RAM make it the match of the ROG Phone 6 for sustained performance. Couple that with responsive controls and a large, fast display, and you have a fine phone for competitive gamers. Meanwhile the design, while bulky, isn’t quite as in-your-face as certain gaming phone rivals. However, not all of Nubia’s decisions make sense. Opting for an in-display selfie camera rather than a balanced design and dual front-firing speakers doesn’t speak to a strict gaming focus, nor does the lack of an unusually large battery. All in all, while the Red Magic 7S Pro is a more-than-solid option for hardcore mobile gamers, the ROG Phone 6 is far more uncompromising and just plain better at what it does.

Qualcomm Adreno 730: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 30% faster than the Adreno 660 in the Snapdragon 888 SoC. For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in late 2021.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 8+ Gen 1: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2021 and manufactured in 4 nm at TSMC. Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a ARM Cortex-X2 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Three more performance cores are based on the A710 but clock up to 2.5 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A510 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6e modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5 memory with up to 3,200 MHz. 5G is now included in the chip with the Snapdragon X65 modem. Compared to the non plus version, the 8+ Gen 1 offers a 200 MHz higher clocked Prime Core and a 10% higher clocked GPU. Furthermore, it is now produced at TSMC and not Samsung.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is typical for smartphones.
