Red Magic 6R Review: Is it really a true gaming phone?

The Red Magic 6R isn’t as thick a handset as the organization’s past gaming invasions (like the Red Magic 6). It fairly quiets the commonly conspicuous and trickling with-shading emphasizes for a milder looking, silver shading finish. It’s discarded the committed Game Space switch, as well, to make a handset that is, indeed, somewhat more ‘typical’ – an ‘ordinary leader’ maybe.

From one viewpoint, we truly like this though: there’s gaming-level goodness because of a 144Hz revive rate OLED show and top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 stage driving things. Then again, it doesn’t bode well: it’s weakening the possibility of a completely gaming telephone and, by contracting the edge, adding a few trade-offs to warm dissemination.

Design & Display

    • 67-inch AMOLED board, 1080 x 2400 goal, 20:9 angle proportion
    • 144Hz most extreme revive rate, 360Hz touch examining the rate
    • Aspects: 163 x 75.3 x 7.8 mm/Weight: 186g
    • Finish choices: Cosmos Black/Mercury Silver
    • Under-show finger impression scanner
    • Implicit shoulder triggers

There is by all accounts somewhat of a shift happening in the business. Increasingly gaming gadgets are focusing on unpretentious or ‘masked’ plans. Be that the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE, as one gaming PC model, or this very Smartphone: the Red Magic 6R.

That is clear in the ‘Mercury Silver’ finish, which despite the fact that there are some stencil-like shapes printed across the back, is a by and largely quelled completion in Red Magic plain language terms. The silver-tone is satisfying, however, the manner in which it charges fingerprints isn’t.

The camera knock likewise jumps out by very some distance, which appears to be pointless given the restricted quality and detail of these focal points – the chunkier Red Magic 6 is a lot of compliment, however, at that point, it’s a lot thicker generally speaking.

That is a genuine separating factor about the 6R: at 7.8mm it’s not really thin, however, being those couple of millimeters less girthy than other gaming Smartphones causes it to feel totally different to utilize. It’s likewise a lot lighter, thus, arriving under that vital 200g imprint, making for an all the more effectively pocketable gadget.


Quad back camera framework:

      • Principle (26mm): 64-megapixel, f/1.8 opening, 0.8m pixel size
      • Wide (13mm): 8 MP, f/2.0, 1.12m
      • Full scale: 5MP, f/2.4
      • Profundity: 2MP, f/2.4
      • Selfie camera: 16-megapixel, f/2.0 gap

Not happy with the three back cameras of different gadgets, the 6R raises the stakes with a quad-camera arrangement. But, truly, it’s worse – it’s simply a pointless profundity sensor that joins the large scale sensor, wide-point, and primary snapper.

Besides the full scale getting a knock from 2-to 5-megapixels contrasted with the typical Red Magic 6, the primary and wide-point cameras stay practically the same (aside from the fundamental sensor shifts from a Samsung to a Sony one). That brings its portion of upsides and negatives.

The 64-megapixel principal sensor presses pictures down to 16-megapixels by utilizing one-in-four handling at good quality. The primary camera you’ll utilize more often than not, as well, as the wide-point isn’t accessible in the fundamental Photo mode. You’ll need to move to Pro mode to have the option to get to wide-point, which is a truly weird choice – particularly as the fundamental Photo mode licenses computerized zoom, yet no squeeze to-wide usefulness.


The fundamental sensor utilizes exceptionally dynamic self-adjust that works really hard of recognizing and locking onto subjects for sharp concentration, while different settings – AI (man-made brainpower) scene distinguishing proof and Smart Photo upgrade – can help the visual allure of the pictures. Some of the time it exaggerates things, however, with the Smart Photo not generally that brilliant – it’ll push reds to levels of immersion that make such subjects appear as though they don’t have a place in a picture. The overall quality is acceptable, however, yet oversharpened.

We’re satisfied that the full-scale camera has been supported to 5-megapixels, putting it comparable to that you’ll find in the Xiaomi Mi 11, for instance, however, we don’t think it’ll be a generally utilized optic. It’s difficult to access, first off, which is all-important for Red Magic’s weird administration of its cameras – somewhat like the stowing away of the wide-point!

Performance & Battery

        • Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 stage, 12GB LPDDR5 RAM
        • 128GB/256GB UFS 3.1 capacity, no microSD card opening
        • 4200mAh battery limit, 30W quick charge
        • Red Magic OS 4.0 (over Google Android 11)
        • Wi-Fi 6E (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac)
        • 5G availability

That the Red Magic 6R is less stout than its gaming Smartphone cousins seems like a champ. However, it brings about certain issues. Specifically that the telephone gets much more sizzling, as the cooling framework simply isn’t quite so proficient here as you’ll find in the standard Red Magic 6. However at that point, there’s no cooling fan – which we found loud in the more established gadget – thus, truly, utilizing the 6R is similar to utilizing numerous other leader telephones.

That hotness doesn’t cause an enormous issue with battery life, shockingly, which is steady employment. We had an inclination that the thin edge and hence lower battery limit probably won’t deal with particularly well when gaming at 120Hz. Fortunately, our assumptions were outperformed by the telephone, which has been enduring great consistently – 16 hours in and it’s genuinely uncommon to hit the 20% low battery caution. Select 144Hz consistently, nonetheless, and you’ll probably battle to arrive.

There are different conflicts with the 6R contrasted with its full-fat greater sibling. The charging speed, at 30W, is a large portion of the speed. Be that as it may, it’s still lovely fast to top the battery up when connected to a legitimate divider attachment.

Part of the explanation the 6R gets hot when you turn up your requests is a result of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 stage at its heart, which is the top-level processor you can find in any telephone for 2021. Its presentation is all that you’d trust: ready to handle the most requesting of versatile games without worry, aside from that inescapable body heat thus. It’s not strongly hot, however, yet may make your fingers somewhat hotter and more slippy (which isn’t ideal thinking about the back finish of this gadget).


The Red Magic 6R is an incredible and very much estimated handset. In any case, is it undoubtedly a gaming telephone? There are a few highlights to assist with differentiating it however, it’s similar as numerous different leaders existing apart from everything else.

That presents somewhat of a problem. What’s its genuine reason? It warms up more than Red Magic’s chunkier other options, first of all, and keeping in mind that it’s absolutely got sufficient rolling on in the engine to work through gaming meetings, so have numerous other lead items – ones that may likewise offer commonly better programming and camera encounters.

Eventually, it’s been a snap utilizing the Red Magic 6R, in light of the fact that the experience hasn’t brought actual size infuriates or actually any extra significant trade-offs. That it’s obscured the significance of what a gaming telephone can be is more a snapshot of examination. All things considered, at this asking value, you probably won’t be worried about the gaming point by any stretch of the imagination – and absolutely need a reasonable alt-lead without the in-your-face ordinary gaming style.
