Being a Macbook Air user for seven years now, it’s safe to say that PC gaming is something I can live without. Even on mobile, it’s rare that I’d play open-world games, and would often resort to lighter arcade or idle ones like Candy Crush and Cats and Soup.
My colleague, Sade, is on the other end of the spectrum. She bought a gaming laptop for the sole purpose of playing Genshin Impact.
Recently, she tested the 18GB+512GB REDMAGIC 7S Pro, and was impressed with the stark differences between a gaming phone’s performance compared to your regular flagship one, especially when it comes to handling a high-performance game like Genshin Impact.
Built for battle
The REDMAGIC 7S Pro has an aviation aluminium frame and Gorilla Glass 5. Being a gaming phone, it needs to accommodate quick reactions for battle, and more, while keeping the device from overheating.
Hence, the phone has a 960Hz touch sampling rate with a 20,000 RPM built-in turbofan.
Using the phone’s 65W fast charger that comes in the box, its battery can go from 0 to 100% in just about one hour.
With a three-camera setup on its rear, it’s equipped with a 64MP main, 8MP ultrawide, and 16MP under-display front camera.
We recently brought the 7S Pro out on a 2D1N trip to i-City’s theme park in Shah Alam. Here, we tested its camera performance to find out if the phone is more than just a gaming device.
At WaterWorld’s waterslides, we found that the REDMAGIC 7S Pro’s main camera has a shutter speed quick enough to take a clear shot despite the fast movements of our subjects.
Colours captured in the photo are vibrant, with good enough contrast to provide a clear picture.
Next, we went over to Snowalk to test the phone’s portrait mode where you can adjust the aperture settings to tweak the blurriness of the photo’s background. These shots came out decent, though the artificial software blurring can get a bit much.
The House Of Horror was the next stop to check out how the cameras performed in low-lighting situations. These shots were average, with enough details captured for you to make out what you’re seeing in the photo.
We gave the phone another shot at taking low-light photos at night, at the theme park’s City of Digital Lights.
Turning on night mode, it is evident that the phone’s image processing software can preserve more details in photos.
Tinkering around with Pro mode a little more, one can exercise more creativity with their shots when playing with shutter speeds, as we did.
With a still subject and decent lighting, the REDMAGIC 7S Pro takes photos that come out looking good by most standards.
This makes great news for those looking to make the gaming phone their daily driver, as its high-performing nature ensures it easily lasts an entire day whether for work or play.
