While we can’t definitively answer yes or no for you on this, since you might be looking for something different than what this phone has, we can offer some reasons why you might want to buy or skip it. I will say though, that there are some good reasons to buy this phone.

90% RedMagic 9 Pro review: This isn't even its final form
Source: Android Central English
The RedMagic 9 Pro has the best software we've seen on any of the brand's phones to date. Plus, users are now guaranteed one year of major and two years of security updates. It is everything we've been asking for and more, enabling users to properly harness the phone's raw power and actually enjoy the UI. You get cutting-edge internals, a notch-free 120Hz AMOLED screen, superb battery and charging specs, RGB-lit shoulder triggers, a headphone jack, and a host of extra gaming, software, and personalization features built-in. The main 50MP cameras deliver solid results, and the front camera is a lot better than last year. Unfortunately, the front camera still has some ways to go — the one blemish on an otherwise perfect record.

ZTE Nubia Red Magic 9 Pro and 9 Pro Plus Smartphones Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
After going through each section, we didn’t find much difference between the Red Magic 9 Pro and 9 Pro Plus, except for more storage options and faster charging support with the Pro+ variant. Apart from this, the rest of the specs are identical. Overall, the Red Magic 9 Pro series phones are a good deal as a gaming-centric phone. Speaking of downsides, then the absence of gyro-EIS support on the camera and the lack of wireless charging is a bit disappointing. On the other hand, you are also getting impressive camera quality, long-lasting battery life, an interesting user interface, and a remarkable display experience as a bonus. But if you want to choose between both models, we would suggest the Red Magic 9 Pro as a complete package. Yet, you can also compare this phone with the Asus ROG Phone 8 Pro in the meantime to make a decent decision according to your requirements. Anyway, the final decision is up to you, so choose accordingly.

90% Nubia Red Magic 9 Pro review: Full power without the price tag
Source: Techradar English
The Nubia Red Magic 9 Pro provides outstanding gaming performance and battery life for a scarcely believable price. It’s a specialist tool alright, and not everyone will love its aesthetic or its UI. But for any avid mobile gamer looking to optimize their bangs-per-buck ratio, however, there’s nothing better on the market right now.

ZTE Nubia Red Magic 9 Pro Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
ZTE Nubia Red Magic 9 Pro offers a wide range of perks that will appeal to gamers as well as normal users. Besides this, the phone doesn’t feel overpriced since you are getting the latest snapdragon chipset, the newest Android skin, and advanced gaming software and hardware support. However, the phone does lack when it comes to camera aspect as compared to other flagship phones. But still, the Red Magic phone’s true strength would be its impressive hardware configuration, long-lasting battery, decent display, and overwhelmingly great gaming experience. With all of those aspects combined, the phone has become one of the best gaming-centric phones of this year. But if you are looking for an alternative option, then you should consider checking out the Vivo X100 Pro. Both models will bring value-for-money specs and features, which will appeal to gamers. On the other hand, the new ZTE Nubia Red Magic 9 Pro will be released for the global market in December 2023, so make a decision that fits your requirements.

80% RedMagic 9 Pro Review
Source: PC Mag English
The RedMagic 9 Pro is a stylish and unique phone that puts gaming first. It features advanced cooling to control heat and speed up performance, one of the largest batteries available in a phone, and lots of tools to customize its behavior and gameplay. All that power makes the RedMagic 9 Pro a fine smartphone for everyday tasks, as well. We wish the camera and speakers were a bit better, while the murky upgrade path and lack of an IP rating give us pause. Those seeking a more balanced phone experience, however, might prefer the Editors' Choice-winning Google Pixel 8 or Galaxy S23 Ultra for their better cameras, waterproof chassis, and long-term update commitments.

95% Nubia Redmagic 9 Pro review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Redmagic 9 Pro is an excellent gaming phone. Plenty of power under the hood, dedicated hardware, impressive cooling and great battery life mean the gaming experience is consistently fantastic. But it also achieves the rare feat of being a solid day-to-day phone. The cameras are better than expected (aside from the dodgy selfie one) and can deliver very usable photos and videos. The software is also easy to use, provided you don’t mind some bloatware and the occasional bug. So the only real barrier is the sheer size and weight of the device. Like most gaming phones, it’s a bit of a beast, so it’s still only really worth buying if you love playing games.

70% RedMagic 9 Pro review: Lightning fast and light on your wallet
Source: Tom's Guide English
RedMagic's new phone marks a big step forward for gaming power with its new chip, increased battery capacity and faster charging. Plus the 9 Pro still has all the gaming features we loved from older RedMagic phones, like side triggers, a cooling fan, a versatile software suite and a surprisingly low price. But like those older phones, the RedMagic 9 Pro's cameras and bad translation job make it harder to recommend.

90% RedMagic 9 Pro Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The RedMagic 9 Pro is an impressive gaming phone on all fronts, especially considering its low asking price. You simply will not find a better performer for the money. Adding to its appeal are the slick looks, the beautiful display, the powerful speakers and the suite of useful gaming enhancements. It’s not all sunshine and roses, though. There’s no IP rating, no wireless charging and, at present, some issues with Netflix DRM certification. All of which could prove to be deal breakers. There’s also the under-display selfie camera, which isn’t going to impress avid selfie snappers. They should take a look at the Vivo V29, instead. The RedMagic 9 Pro values gaming performance above all else, and if you do too, you’ll be absolutely delighted with this phone.

80% Redmagic 9 Pro review: More power than you can use
Source: Android Police English
The biggest problem with the Redmagic 9 Pro is that you simply don't need the latest hardware to play the most demanding Android games in 2023. While features like the extensive battery life and touch triggers are great assets, for the same price you can get a regular Android phone that will offer a more reliable overall experience that can also play the latest Android games. However, if you're keen on picking up the latest Android gaming hardware, the Redmagic 9 Pro is the best gaming phone you'll find at its price point. There's a lot to love here for those wanting to jump at an affordable gaming phone packed with the latest hardware, but until mobile games catch up to what Snapdragon is offering, upgrading to the best hardware every year feels more pointless than ever.

82% nubia Red Magic 9 Pro review
Source: GSM Arena English
Overall, the Red Magic 9 Pro is a capable gaming smartphone with tons of useful gaming features, excellent design, and probably one of the best, if not the best, price/performance ratios currently on the market. Kudos to nubia for maintaining its competitive pricing. However, it's hard to get over the fact that this is the first Red Magic phone to overheat under prolonged loads. We checked, and every single Red Magic phone we've tested kept its cool under prolonged loads. That used to be its shtick, and now it's gone. Also, the display is not as competitive in brightness and HDR capabilities, the software still needs better translation, and the high refresh rate gaming is still a hit-and-miss.

Red Magic 9 Pro Unboxing & Review | Super-Powered Gaming Smartphone!
Source: Tech Spurt English
Vs the 8S Pro, you can expect plenty of upgrades. That Qualcomm chipset is just one massive factor, which means you can play Genshin Impact without a single judder in the 60FPS frame rate for over an hour. The Red Magic 9 Pro also boosts the battery size to 6500mAh, and you can play Genshin for well over five hours before the phone runs dry. The camera tech is basic, but fine for simple everyday shots. Nubia has added the usual excellent range of gamer features, including a pair of pressure-sensitive triggers. Now with strong haptic feedback. Plus, the upgraded ICE cooling system does a marvellous job, with a surprisingly silent fan.

Qualcomm Adreno 750: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 7340 in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and first benchmarks show that the GPU can beat the Apple A17 Pro iGPU. 

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 3: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2022 with a fast prime core based on a ARM Cortex-X3 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Two more performance cores are based on the A715 and also support only 64 bit applications. The two additional A710 cores support also 32 bit applications as do the power saving Cortex-A510 cores. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 7 modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5x memory with up to 4,200 MHz. 5G is included in the chip with the Snapdragon X70 modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.80":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


83.74%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
