Nubia Red Magic Mars Review: The $399 Gaming Phone

The Nubia Red Magic Mars launched earlier this year as another contender in the growing “gaming phone” market. Unlike some of the other gaming phones on the market, the Red Magic Mars comes with an affordable price tag. TK from XDA TV reviewed this $399 gaming phone in his latest video.

One of the coolest features of the Red Magic Mars is the programmable “Air Triggers.” They are capacitive shoulder buttons that can be programmed to mimic a tap anywhere on the screen. This is a really handy feature for mobile gaming. TK also appreciated the near Pixel-like software experience.

Overall, TK was impressed with the phone and he says it’s a great value device if you want to get started with a dedicated gaming phone. Check out the full review below.
