93% ZTE RedMagic 6 Pro 5G – a gamer’s smartphone powerhouse (review)
Source: Gadgetguy English
ZTE’s Red Magic 6 Pro meets or exceeds all test parameters, so we start at a passmark of 8/10. Screen, warranty, expandability, battery life, dedicated GamesSpace and raw power take it to 9+. We are not going to penalise it for the OS or camera because they do the job.

90% Nubia Red Magic 6 Pro Gaming Phone Review: The Advantage is Real
Source: Make Use Of English
All in all, the Nubia Red Magic 6 Pro is a great gaming phone. It's not the best phone on the market compared to the software offered by devices like the Samsung Galaxy S21, but it's pretty close. When you consider the price, anyone looking for a gaming phone should consider this one, as it offers impressive specs for the dollar amount.

Nubia RedMagic 6 Pro Display review: Good control of artifacts
Source: DxOMark English
The Nubia RedMagic 6 Pro handles artifacts well; however, its general lack of brightness significantly impacted the readability of both still content and videos. Further, even though it is smooth to the touch when both browsing and gaming, problems with touch zooming also adversely affected its score.

60% RedMagic 6 Pro review: Great for gaming, not so much for everyday
Source: Android Central English
The RedMagic 6 Pro has a lot to like — a huge battery, a bright screen, and the highest-end specs. It also serves its intended purpose as a gaming phone beautifully! The trade-offs are software that lacks polish, more than a few bugs, and a horrible camera.
