The Nubia Red Magic 8S Pro is the latest addition to the premium Nubia Red Magic line of gaming smartphones. It has been released in July 2023 and is a top-of-the-line model that offers an impressive array of features to meet the demands of mobile gamers.

The design of the Nubia Red Magic 8S Pro features a 6.8 inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1116x2480 (FHD+) and a 120 Hz refresh rate, as well as a peak brightness of 1300 cd/m². The usable surface ratio is 88.6%, not to mention the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for extra protection. Additionally, the phone's frame has been crafted with aluminum alloy and glass.

When it comes to performance, the Nubia Red Magic 8S Pro is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 (4nm) processor. There are three versions available, varying in RAM size from 12GB, 8GB, and 16GB using LPDDR5X RAM, and storage options ranging from 256GB, 512GB, and 128GB with UFS Storage 4.0. Score on AnTuTu (v9) is 1320000. There is also a fingerprint display for security. Furthermore, the phone is equipped with gaming triggers, a cooling system, and a Red Core R2 independent game chip. All these features result in a smooth and powerful gaming experience.

When it comes to photography, the Nubia Red Magic 8S Pro has a triple-camera setup. The standard camera utilizes Samsung GN5 with a 50.0Mpx sensor, f/1.88, and a 1.000 pixel size. Other lenses include a wide-angle lens with 8.0Mpx, f/2.2, and a 1.120 pixel size, and a macro lens with 2.0Mpx, f/2.4. For selfies, the front camera has 16.0Mpx, f/2.0, and a 1.120 pixel size. The camera is capable of recording 4K and 8K video. Furthermore, there is an under display camera.

Connectivity features of Nubia Red Magic 8S Pro include Bluetooth 5.3, Dual SIM, USB Host 3.0, NFC, Audio Jack, WiFi 6 (802.11ax), and GPS (L1+L5).

In terms of battery life, the Nubia Red Magic 8S Pro has a 6000mAh capacity backed by a 65.0W fast charge.

The Nubia Red Magic 8S Pro is an excellent gaming smartphone that offers superior performance and hardware. Its powerful processor, gaming triggers, cooling system, and fast charging make it an ideal choice for avid mobile gamers. However, its lack of wireless charging and telephoto lens, as well as a relatively low spec front camera, are cons worth considering.

  • A performance beast that comes with a lot of exclusive feature for gamers !

    This phone has one of the best designs i've ever seen for an android phone. It's, of course, powerful as hell and can run any game (even the biggest ones like Call Of Duty Mobile) at the maximul framerate allowed by the game, on Ultra settings. It's obviously not made for everyone, it's really focused on gaming usage and is not water resistant and sometimes can heat, but the cooling system is really well made. Definetely an outstanding phone for tech enthusiasts !

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
