Case and features - Seamless viewing experience

The Nubia RedMagic 9 Pro is very angular and calls to mind the design of its predecessor. The device is well balanced and sits well in the hand despite being fairly heavy. It is available in the colourways Sleet (black), Cyclone (translucent back) and Snowfall (silver-white).

We like the 9 Pro’s built quality: all the gaps on the phone are small and even. It once again has a seamless display with the front camera hidden beneath the panel. The under-display camera is meanwhile virtually invisible and can only be located when you view it from certain angles with lots of light shining on the display. The rear cameras are flush with the phone's body – something you don’t see often nowadays. They are likewise covered by an unspecified glass.

The gaming phone doesn’t have any IP certification, but the sealed SIM slot suggests that there is at least some basic protection against splashing water.

The phone is similar to its predecessor when it comes to features. On the right side of the phone, you'll once again find two touch-sensitive dedicated triggers. They provide good haptic feedback and feel very responsive during gaming.

The integrated USB port not only delivers high data transfer speeds (copy test: 635.9 MB/s) but also supports video output via a cable. This means you can easily mirror the screen or load up a desktop version of RedMagic Game Space (up to Full HD and 144Hz).

Connectivity, software and operation

The Nubia RedMagic 9 Pro supports all conventional mobile communications standards with a wide frequency coverage. Wireless LAN connectivity is really snappy and stable with Wi-Fi 7 as well as in both the 5.0 GHz and 6.0 GHz range. 

The phone offers decent voice quality as long as you hold it to your ear. That said, noise suppression is average at best, and the RedMagic sounds slightly echoey in speaker mode.

For operating system, the phone comes with Android 14 with Nubia’s RedMagic OS 9.0 custom UI. At the time of review, the security patches were dated 1 November 2023 and thus no longer completely up to date. Based on experience, updates are only rolled out sporadically. Nubia has merely promised to provide one major update and two years of security patches.

Biometric security is handled by an in-display optical fingerprint scanner that does its job adequately and can measure heart rate to boot. Alternatively or additionally, you can use facial recognition via the front camera, but this method is less secure.

Apart from the two extra capacitive shoulder triggers, there is a striking, red button built into the frame that lets you switch to a special gaming interface on the phone: the RedMagic Game Space. It lets users customise settings for individual games and manage any paired accessories.

Cameras - Better dual camera, weak front camera

Selfie taken with the RedMagic 9 Pro
Selfie taken with the RedMagic 9 Pro

Nothing much has changed with the front camera. The under-display camera has a beauty mode at its disposal, but images still look muddy and lack detail even when this function is disabled. Pictures also quickly become extremely noisy in low-light conditions.

The main camera module now has one lens fewer than its predecessor. The wide-angle sensor is identical to the one on the RedMagic 8S Pro but now has optical image stabilisation (OIS). The second lens has 50 MP as well and can be used to take both ultra-wide and macro images. Whilst lacking any optical zoom, the phone is capable of up to ten times digital zoom. Photos taken with the RedMagic 9 Pro have a nice level of detail but look somewhat washed-out and dull.

You can record videos at up to 8K (30 fps) with the main shooter and Full HD (30 fps) with the front camera.

Display - Bright AMOLED in the RedMagic 9 Pro

Subpixel structure
Subpixel structure

In terms of general specs, the display on the RedMagic 9 Pro remains unchanged from the previous generation: it's a 6.8-inch Full HD+ panel capable of up to 120Hz refresh rate. Though colour accuracy and brightness have been further improved.

With the ambient light sensor enabled, the AMOLED display hit an average peak brightness of 1,031 cd/m² whilst showing a completely white image. When bright and dark areas are distributed evenly (APL 18), the panel even managed to get as bright as 1,242 cd/m². It also reached a similar level for HDR playback. The display has a manual max brightness of 589 cd/m².

Like all OLED panels, the screen on RedMagic 9 Pro isn't spared from flickering either. That said, Nubia uses high-frequency PWM dimming at 2,160Hz to make the display as comfortable to the eye as possible.

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.
       Response Time Black to White
1.08 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.539 ms rise
↘ 0.5365 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.4015 ms rise
↘ 0.401 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 ms).

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 detected 60 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 60 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 60 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17900 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life

The Nubia RedMagic 9 Pro is one of the first smartphones available globally to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Thanks to the built-in fan, which runs even quieter (max. 39 dB(A)) than the one in the 8S Pro, the phone is able to keep the processor running stably at peak performance most of the time.

In our browser benchmarks, we noticed that the RedMagic phone and Chrome don’t play particularly well together. Results were surprisingly poor when Google’s browser was used. Things were different when we used Microsoft Edge, for example.

We ran the Burnout benchmark (CPU + GPU) to simulate a heavy load. The RedMagic 9 Pro crashed after about ten minutes and required a restart. The device overheated despite having a fan. Subsequent measurements were thus carried out with only CPU load enabled. Even so, the gaming phone became very hot.

The two speakers on the RedMagic 9 Pro can get really loud, but they already sound tinny and empty at moderate volume levels.

The Nubia phone truly shines when it comes to battery life. The battery has a whopping 6,500 mAh capacity and lasted an outstanding 17 hours in our Wi-Fi test.
