Android News / RedMagic 7S Pro Review: Superlative Gaming Hardware For $729!
RedMagic 7S Pro is the cheapest top-shelf gaming smartphone for the second half of 2022.

Nubia/ZTE provided AndroidHeadlines with a review unit of the RedMagic 7S Pro in Obsidian Black. As usual, they didn’t have a say in our opinion, nor did they see an advance copy of the review before you. The review device was used for more than a week before composing this review.
The RedMagic 7S Pro is now available globally including the USA and Canada. This particular mid-year upgrade is not very different from the excellent RedMagic 7 Pro launched earlier in 2o22.
Changes that Nubia has made on the newer smartphone include a new back cover, box artwork, and a newer more powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. So, let’s dive into the unboxing to see what upgrades Nubia has made with their latest gaming smartphone.
The unboxing experience has now been the same for almost a year and a half. It was quite difficult to notice the differences as they are subtle. I have a section later in the review showing the subtle differences between the 7S Pro and the older RedMagic 7 Pro.
Inside the retail box are the smartphone, the 65W GaN charging brick, a hefty red color USB-C cable, and a clear TPU case along with paperwork and a SIM tool.

The RedMagic 7S Pro instantly got VoLTE 5G signal as soon as I put in my T-Mobile SIM card. I did not have to manually toggle 5G on like the RedMagic 7 Pro which is great as it is one less step for the end user. The 7S Pro also has built-in VoWiFi support which I tested in a few locations with a poor cellular signal.
All other day-to-day stuff had zero issues, this includes calls, music streaming, app downloads, or catching up on the Netflix queue or YouTube subscriptions. Contactless payments via NFC are a breeze with Google Pay. You will find that this smartphone has all the connectivity options you will need on a daily basis and more.

The RedMagic 7S Pro base version in Obsidian Black is one of the best gaming smartphones you can buy in 2022. For $729 you get top-of-the-line performance, excellent audio options, stellar thermal management, a fast and responsive display, and very good battery life.
I am quite happy that Nubia has lowered the base price by $70 making this one of the cheapest gaming smartphones out there. Granted, the camera experience could be better. On the flip side, Nubia has improved the software bugs from the previous versions. So, for gaming enthusiasts with a limited budget, the RedMagic 7S Pro is an excellent choice in 2022.
