see the size difference thickness wise it's actually not too bigit has a nice curved edge to it so it's not too much bigger but the display isbigger now if we put our finger on the fingerprint sensor there's aninteresting animation and we won't copy here now this is the home screen of thenubia red magic 5g and we'll go to settings here after it updated and youcan see this is the 12 gigabyte variant with 256 gigabytes of storage runningAndroid 10 with the March 1st 2020 security patch so it's actually prettyup-to-date already maybe there'll be a new update very soon with the latestsecurity patch now it's also running at red magic OS at version 3.0 now the homescreen skin looks like this it's pretty familiar as far as any other you've seenin rent magic now a couple of things to know this is very similar to the Googlenow launcher so if I

slide over here we've got basically our Google now viewbut you can't swipe up to go back you have to swipe back to get there so it'skind of interesting and then it's highly customizable so you can see I have itset to 144 Hertz for the display and you have that option to change it from 144Hertz to 90 or 60 and leave it in the status bar so you can change it to 144for eSports change it back when you need to save someso that's really nice as well now in the notification in status bar we can alsoshow our network speed so right now it's gonna give us our overall speed if we'reusing network connectivity and it's just nice that we have all these littlecustomizable options that are really key to people that are playing games ontheir phone and if you don't like the gestures that 



I've been using you canget back the navigation bar switch it out to whatever you'd like and otherthan that you can see we have neo AI for smart game neo speed that helps you withgaming and you've just got all these really nice effects such as colorfullighting effects or low power off and all sorts of things now anotherinteresting thing is other than the lighting we have the cooling fan and wecan tell it to turn on to max speed or even have it turned on for quickcharging so it keeps the battery cool and then you can have it shut down aswell so it's really neat to have all of these different options and it's justsomething that's a little bit different than anything else you see out there andyou also have some options such as always-on display they have some niceoptions here but the thing that sets this phone apart from


others that I'veseen is not its skin but rather it's a gaming mode so in the upper left we havethis little switch here we flip the switch and we go into our game mode andso you can see we have access to the cooling fan RGB LED strips so if we gointo that we have an RGB LED strip on the back so we'll wait for it to turn onor off it it lights up this part right hereI can turn it on or off if you want to use that and then also the cooling fanon or off and now we also have some other options if we swipe from the rightwe have options for our fan we have our display switch being switched to 144Hertz just by tapping on it we also have 4d shocks so it's supposed to be abetter haptic feedback motor and then access to things such as blocking callsblocking messages or taking a snap of the phone basically a screen shot andthen it also tells us what our CPU and GPU are running at and it's got a bunchof really interesting stats that you don't

normally see on other phones soit's definitely set up for gaming now let me go ahead and add some games so wecan take a closer look now I've added a couple different games to this phone andlet's go into the gaming mode now as soon as I do this you're going to hearthe fans kick so we'll rotate it here and it's notterribly loud let's see if you can hear this now that's what the fans ounds likeyou can turn it off with this button here and then it kicks back on and itseems to do a good job you can actually feel air blowing out of the bottom hereso let's go ahead and try a game now because this is in the game mode hereyou can go through swipe through your games add a game you can sign in andthen if you swipe to the right it also again shows you what your CPU usage isat you can assign your triggers and things like that it's

really nice solet's go into asphalt 9 first it seems super fast as well and the sound isquite good but I have it turned down for this video now this game is super smoothat 144 Hertz you can see t  hat everything is running nice and smooth it's in fullresolution everything's turned all the way up and the phone is staying fairlycool but it is getting a little bit warm and let me go ahead and go back to thegame space here you can just swipe in at any time and the back of the phone iswarming up a little bit but that's to be expected when playing somethingintensive and ramping up the CPU and GPU let's swipe over and go to call of dutyand check that out so this game is super smooth on this display it looks great itlooks better than

I remember it on the Xbox 360 and in general it's veryplayable no problems here the framerate super smooth you've got that fan keepingeverything nice and cool now if we want to exit the game we can just swipe tothe right go to the game space and we're back to the main screen flip our switchhere and we're back to the home screen the fan shuts off and you just use thephone as a normal device and all of your settings go back to normal it's a reallynice way to do a gaming phone and it's pretty interesting now as far as thecamera is concerned on the back we have some interesting options so if we gointo the camera you'll see that we have some zoom options so let me put thepixel 4xl underneath so you can see this but we can go to 3 X 5 X and then 10 Xand it's actually pretty clear it's

not too bad and we also have the option formacro photos which you don't really see too often so what you need to do inorder to get macro is you actually go into the camerafamily here and then in the camera family you go to macro and so maybe Iwant to get really close to this looks like it's in focus there we go we've gotsome focus peaking which means just the red outline here that lets you knowyou're in focus and you can see we have a macro shot so if we zoom in it'sactually pretty nice so it's nice to have that as an option on the camera andthen also you have some really nice video options as wellso if we go into the options here you see we've got grid and things like thatlet's see if

we can go back let's go back to photo or video here rather thengo back into options and you'll see for the resolutions we have all the way upto 8k but it recommends it for outdoor use because it probably needs a lot oflight so I've set it to 4k 60 so that's really nice it's got that option solet's go ahead and see what it sounds like we'll go ahead and hit record andnow we're recording from the red magic 5g so this is what it sounds like justrecording out of it it does seem to have some odd focus issues from time to timeit doesn't seem like it's dual pixel autofocus but this phone is fine formost people as far as photos and video but it's
