We think the Nubia Red Magic will appeal to people who want to show off. You can certainly play games very well, but that doesn't make this phone better than other options at its price level. With better specs, more thoughtful design, and no adware, we would have been more likely to give it a recommendation. It's still a powerful phone, but it isn't the best option at its price unless you really want a phone with a LED light strip.
