A well-executed full-screen design.
With a slew of new features, the RedMagic 7 Pro improves on the RedMagic 7, but its finest feature is its under-display selfie camera, which is the best I’ve seen on any phone.
RedMagic 7, if you’re not know, is a gaming phone with a cooling fan and capacitive triggers that lets you play games for longer and more comfortably. Improved cooling, a new Red Core 1 processor to help with haptics, audio, and the under-display camera, and a larger battery make the new Pro model more suited for gaming.
Your next logical question could be, “Why does this gaming phone have a function usually reserved for products like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3?” Relatives will tell you what the answer is. Nubia, the parent company of RedMagic, is a subsidiary of ZTE, which developed the Axon 20 and Axon 30 under-display cameras, respectively. Because of this, RedMagic may have had minimal difficulty obtaining these new displays.
It doesn’t matter how the screen is created since it appears exactly like a conventional monitor, even over where the camera is.. With this phone, you don’t feel like you’re playing on an iPhone or a current Android phone that has a punch-hole cutout, but rather a continuous display. Asphalt 9 is a terrific game to play on this phone because of its strong CPU and extremely sensitive touch triggers.
If so, how are the pictures? They’re not terrible, either. The RedMagic has a passable grade in terms of colour, but the texture of my skin and my hoodie may need some improvement.
If you’re going to utilise the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s under-display camera, you’re going to have to do it when the phone is closed in order to get the most out of the phone’s enormous inner display. The ZTE Axons, on the other hand, are designed to be high-end smartphones with a focus on photography. Because of the strangely distorted and overly processed photographs they take, these phones fall short of being among the greatest Android phones.
A gaming phone’s lack of cameras is easy to ignore if you value computing and gaming performance above picture quality.
With the RedMagic 7 Pro’s under-display camera, there is an additional cost: the display refresh rate (120Hz) is lower than the original 7’s (165Hz). It’s bad that the enhanced model isn’t always better than the basic model, but you won’t notice the difference while you’re using the phone regularly.
We’ll have a comprehensive review of the RedMagic 7 Pro shortly to show you all it’s capable of and see whether it can make it into our list of the best gaming phones. The existing implementation of an unsatisfactory feature should be applauded, at least for the time being.
Under-display cameras are expected to improve in the future, but RedMagic has been clever enough to make the technology a practical addition right now.
