A Budget Gaming Phone Nubia Red Magic 3
PC.com|July - August 2019

The Red Magic 3 is another beast of a phone coming from Nubia, and it has all the makings to dominate the gaming smartphone segment. But there’s one thing that differentiates itself from the rest. And that of course, is that it’s almost half the cost of a ‘normal’ gaming smartphone. For the budget gamer, that’s a lot of money. But that being said, let’s get into what makes the Red Magic 3 a great gaming phone.

Display and Design; Industrial or Modern?

In all honesty, this phone screams gamer aesthetics and everything someone who identified as a ‘gamer’ would want. It comes equipped with a massive 6.65″ AMOLED display, and weighs in at 225 grams. If you can’t tell, that’s a pretty heavy phone. Just for reference, an iPhone XS Max weighs in at 177 grams. That’s a huge difference in the smartphone world, but then again, they’re marketed for different people. The design and form of the Nubia Red Magic 3 could also be interpreted as durable, hefty, and just what someone needs. It’s a matter of perspective, so don’t let that sole fact dissuade you from the device.

The screen is the biggest we’ve seen for a gaming phone, colour reproduction is good, and so is the brightness. The resolution towers at 2340 x 1080 pixels and it has the somewhat modern 19:5:9 aspect ratio. That’s not the only thing about the phone that stands out. Considering it’s body is made of metal, with red accents around it, safe to say the device was created for people with a very niche taste. It is for the ‘gamer’, and more specifically, the mobile gamer. Even against the Huawei P30 Pro, which is just a few inches smaller, the difference was absolute. It’s a matter of preference, and you might like the Red Magic 3 display more than the P30.
