The Red Magic 7 is a real contender for the best gaming phone right now with some great performance and features, but it could soon be overshadowed by the 7 Pro. With only minor upgrades here, it might be worth waiting until that phone arrives.
Nubia makes a swift return with another gaming phone bargain, offering top-tier performance at a competitive price.
The Red Magic 7 is the only truly powerful yet relatively affordable gaming option on the market. So if you are strictly looking into gaming handsets, the Red Magic 7 is indeed a "bang for the buck" in many ways.
The RedMagic 7 is a hugely powerful modern gaming phone, and at this moment in time it’s the best gaming phone out there. It’s still unlikely to attract too much mainstream attention, but if you’re looking for a phone where gaming is going to be the central focus this is the 2022’s first must-buy.
Although its predecessor only came out in October last year, the Nubia RedMagic 7 packs a punch with an upgraded processor that, in some regards, even outperforms the iPhone 13’s A15 Bionic chip. Too bad about its software though.
The latest RedMagic 7 won't be for everyone, but when you consider what you get for $629, it can be easy to look past the RedMagic's shortcomings. After all, those demanding games aren’t going to play themselves.
As a result, unless you’re a die-hard gamer, this can be a hard phone to recommend. It’s the ultimate phone hardware — in that, it packs literally everything and the kitchen sink into one robust package — but it isn’t the ultimate phone because of that minute detail that the software is a completely poor experience.
