nubia REDMAGIC 6R Review
Centric features are to be expected, but its not without limitations, given its relatively low price, but the question is: is this the right pick or are you better off with any other gaming smartphones currently available, lets all find out in our full review? Music. First lets talk about the design, its a premium device, which you will immediately notice. The moment you take it out of the box, its got a cool metal frame with antenna bands all around gorilla glass, 3 on the front and glass at the back flipping to its front. The red magic 6r is equipped with a large 6.67 inches amoled screen that supports up to 144hz refresh rate and a touch sampling rate of 400 hertz placed above the screen is a hole punch for the 16 megapixel selfie camera and in the bezel, the earpiece for Phone calls now for buttons and ports on the right side are the metal power and volume buttons also found on this side? Are the pressure sensitive shoulder trigger buttons, with 400hz touch sampling rate down below? Are the usb type c port main microphone cartridge for dual nano size, sims and a loud speaker? Unfortunately, we dont have dual speakers here at the top of the frame. We have the pinhole for the secondary microphone at the back. We have a quad camera module consisting of a 64 megapixel main 8 megapixel ultra wide 5 megapixel macro and 2 megapixel depth, as well as the led flash moving to its display.
The red magic 6r is equipped with a 6.67 inches amid screen with full hd plus resolution or equals to ‘5 ppi. This is a good resolution for a gaming smartphone as qhd or 4k doesnt really add anything to the gaming experience for a screen of this size. Protecting it is a corning gorilla, glass, 3 and a pre installed screen protector screen. Quality is great, with bunchy colors, deep blacks, vibrant and has wide viewing angles. Thats typical, though, for amoled displays. But what will entice users is the high refresh rate. You have the options for 60 hertz, 90 hertz, 120 hertz and 144 hertz, and if you want, the phone can also dynamically adjust the frame rate based on the scenario or application. When it comes to the audio, we only have a single downward firing speaker, which is one of the first limitations we encounter as other gaming. Smartphones have dual speakers for more immersive audio. The placement is also an issue, as most games are played with the phone in landscape orientation. This puts the speaker directly in contact with your palm effectively muffling it. It can be avoided somewhat by adjusting your grip, but at that point it becomes difficult to use the shoulder triggers, so it becomes a case of this or that for software the phone runs on red magic, os 4.0, based on android 11.. It looks like any typical android, 11 interface, but with custom icons and wallpapers. In addition, it comes with the usual google apps and some built in tools and the nubia red magic equipment app, which shows the accessories you can use on this device.
As for the features theres game space which houses all your games and automatically optimize the system upon launch, a quick swipe from the side will bring out a dashboard that gives you access to game enhancement, display profiles, toggle aim, assist, adjust refresh rate, recording and shoulder triggers. It will also show you cpu, gpu and network speed stats. All in all, it is well packed with gaming. Centric features now powering the red magic 6r is a qualcomm snapdragon 888, with 2.84 gigahertz octa core cpu and adreno 660 gpu. The unit we have is the 8 gigs lpddr5 ram and 128 gigs of ufs 3.1 storage model. However, a more powerful model is available with 12 gigs of ram and 256 gigs of internal storage. Well, as expected, performance is great and can handle all fast. We throw at it especially gaming if you want to know more about the numbers flashing, the benchmark scores right now when it comes to cooling, the red magic 6r doesnt come with a fan, unlike other gaming smartphones, but an accessory is available as a separate purchase. However, it uses a multi level cooling system that consists of a graphene, vapor chamber, cooling, thermal conductive, gel and superconducting foil, which works in tandem with the metal frame to dissipate the heat while playing games in impact. We got a recorded temperature of 51 degrees celsius, its hot on the top side, but tolerable using the case included in the package, will also make it more bearable for battery.
It has a 4200 milliamp hour capacity, which is good enough for a whole day of heavy use at high refresh rate in our video loop test, which involves playing a 1080p video on loop in airplane mode turned on at fifty percent. Brightness and volume got us 15 hours and 30 minutes of playback charging, on the other hand, takes a little over an hour with 30 watt fast charging now lets talk about the cameras. The red magic 6 also aims to be a versatile shooter by packing a quad rear camera setup, which consists of a 64 megapixel main 8 megapixel ultra wide 5 megapixel macro and a 2 megapixel depth sensing. However, we find the ui frustrating, as there is no way to access ultrawide on default mode. Instead, you have to shoot in pro or manual mode to select the ultra white lens image. Quality is good with plenty of details and rich colors. However, we noticed that it tends to render greens and reds with some extra punch its got portrait mode and can apply artificial backgrounds quite well, thanks to its dedicated depth sensor. It also has auto hdr and night mode, which also works. Fine, though the macro part is a bit of a hit or miss, as we often get out of focus shots when it comes to selfies its got a 16 megapixel shooter, which produces sharp images in natural colors, and it also has portrait mode and beauty effects when It comes to the videos it can record up to a whopping 8k resolution at 30 frames per second, its a heavy memory, though, as a 30 seconder clip is at 208 megabytes theres also 4k at 60 frames per second available.
If you think 8k seems to be overkill now to conclude this video, the red magic 6r is the kind of device for users who want the performance and features of a gaming smartphone without the bulk it doesnt have flashy features, but instead focus on things that matters. The most display chipset memory battery advanced wireless connectivity and cooling system, our only gripe is the speaker due to its placement and the fact that its not a stereo setup, but other than that. This is a great gaming smartphone to have. If you are on the budget, the nubia red magic 6r is available on the global red magic website. The 8 gigs of ramp plus 128 gigs of internal storage cost most model is priced at 499 dollars, while the 12 gigs plus 256 gigs mercury variant is priced at 599.
