Nubia is one of the companies running headlong into this fledgling field. Now that the Red Magic 5S is here, and we can say for certain that features like internal cooling and a high refresh rate come at a cost: the Red Magic 5S is good for gaming but not much else.
The Red Magic 5 isn’t a complete wash—its gaming-centric features and performance help to even out the device’s lack of polish. The battery life is fantastic, and the specs are killer for the price, but there are better options if you’re not a gamer who plays for hours on a smartphone every day.
