Red Magic 6S Pro Review: With Snapdragon 888+ Ultra Powerful Performance


The Red Magic gaming phone is famous for its unique air-cooled heat dissipation design and a number of black technological innovations. The extreme heat dissipation can ensure that even under the high load of high-quality, high-frame-rate games, the hardware performance can be consistently released. Coupled with the optimization of the game software and hardware, the Red Magic is always firmly in the game mobile phone market. Take a place. While pursuing the ultimate performance, it brings players a suitable body thickness and an excellent full-screen design, how to dissipate heat, how to configure it, and how to stack it, just to bring players a mobile phone that focuses on the gaming experience. Now, the Red Magic gaming phone has brought the Red Magic 6S Pro with more extreme heat dissipation, game control, and performance optimization to a new level, reaching a new level from the inside to the outside.

This Red Magic 6S Pro, as always, inherits the tradition of extreme stacking. The hardware adopts the “performance iron triangle” combination of Snapdragon 888 Plus + full blood LPDDR5 + flagship UFS 3.1, with a 6.8-inch full screen that supports 165Hz high brushing. And it is a straight screen that is more suitable for games (curved screens are becoming less and less entertaining nowadays).

However, although the performance of Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 888 Plus has been greatly improved compared with the previous generation, it also causes the problem of high heat generation under high load, which can easily lead to an unstable gaming experience. Many users jokingly call them “Fire Dragon”.

For this reason, the Red Magic 6S Pro has been further upgraded in terms of heat dissipation. It has a built-in high-speed centrifugal fan of 20000 rpm, which is 35% higher than the previous generation of wind pressure. It is equipped with a canyon heat dissipation duct, n-21 ane phase change heat dissipation material + superconducting copper foil + High thermal conductivity gel + composite graphene + VC heat sink + Aviation aluminum middle frame, etc. from the ICE7.0 nine-layer three-dimensional multi-dimensional heat dissipation system, the combination of active and passive heat dissipation, the “fire dragon” of Snapdragon 888 Plus can be seconds Become an “ice dragon”.

Design & Appearance

The packaging box, mobile phone, and charger are all in black color, which is not obtrusive and hides huge potential under the low-key appearance.

Red Magic 6S Pro uses a 6.8-inch AMOLED screen, supports a 165Hz high refresh rate, 720Hz multi-finger touch sampling rate, bright color display, and transparent look and feel. On the whole, this screen is the best one in terms of gaming phones.

Unlike most mobile phones on the market, Red Magic 6S Pro does not adopt the popular digging screen solution but uses a full screen without digging holes. It is also a tricky method to hide the front camera inside the upper frame, which is more suitable for gaming. Full-screen experience.

In addition, it does not use a curved screen, but a traditional straight screen. On the one hand, the curved screen has made many users aesthetically fatigued. On the other hand, playing games on the curved screen is also prone to accidental touch and display area problems.

The back is made of glass, the body is red and black, with simple and cool lines, it looks full of technology. Moreover, the REDMAGIC part in the middle of the fuselage also hides the function of the Red Magic waist button.

The Red Magic 6S Pro uses a rear three-camera solution, arranged vertically in the middle of the fuselage, including a 64-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, and a 2-megapixel macro. It satisfies the game performance while taking into account the players’ daily photos.

The side uses a metal middle frame, the red competitive button on the left can directly call out the game center, and the addition of the double-shoulder touch button on the right allows players to take a step ahead in the game.

Of course, in the main game e-sports, heat dissipation is naturally the top priority, the left and right sides are matched with the unique air duct design of the Red Magic. In the top details, you can see that the Red Magic 6S Pro still retains the 3.5mm headphone jack. The bottom details, from left to right, are fan vent/external amplifier, USB Type-C interface, noise reduction microphone, SIM card slot.

The Red Magic did not follow the trend of “environmental protection”, but also included a 120W Black Cube Gallium Nitride charging head, which supports multiple mainstream fast-charging protocols such as PD and QC, provides multi-level charging power, and can also be used for notebooks and Switch digital devices in normal times. For charging, if there are more devices, only one charging head is enough when you go out.

Hardware & Performance

As a gaming phone, the Red Magic 6S Pro is equipped with today’s top-performance three-piece set: Snapdragon 888 Plus + full blood version of 6400MBps LPDDR5 memory + flagship UFS 3.1 flash memory.

Snapdragon 888 Plus has also upgraded the main frequency of the X1 super core in the 1+3+4 three-cluster architecture from 2.8GHz to 3.0GHz. Previously, we would often trigger on competing mobile phones equipped with Snapdragon 888/888 Plus. Temperature control, leading to interruption of running points.

Let’s take a look at the performance of this phone.


AnTuTu scored 869,153 points, ranking first in the performance list.

Master Lu

Master Lu ran out of 938,251 and also ranked first in the performance list.

From the running scores of AnTuTu and Master Lu, it can be seen that the Red Magic 6S Pro is more aggressive in terms of performance release, and during the test, thanks to the excellent heat dissipation of the fuselage, there was no interruption of running scores due to temperature control.


We chose the mainstream GeekBench 5 to test, and the score was 1186 for single-core and 3725 for multi-core.

For reference, the standard score of the Snapdragon 888 Plus included in the SoC performance rankings of fast technology mobile phones is 1120 points for single-core and 3624 points for multi-core, which is 66 points higher than single-core and 101 points for multi-core.

GFX Bench

In the GFX Bench running test, the Red Magic 6S Pro is also about 5-10% higher than the average 888 Plus mobile phone.


The sequential read is 1772MB/s and the sequential write is 730MB/s, which is a typical UFS 3.1 score.

Featured functions

Thanks to the rapid development of hardware, mobile phones are no longer a problem in terms of performance, but since the main “game phone”, should have features that are different from ordinary mobile phones. This Red Magic 6S Pro features in gaming, but a lot of careful thought has been given. Now, let’s look at the small details.

On the Red Magic 6S Pro, the Red Magic retained dual independent IC game shoulder buttons and upgraded them to a touch sampling rate of 450Hz, bringing players a gamepad-like experience, and the shoulder buttons can be individually set with related functions, allowing players Handy in the game, one step ahead.

The location of the dual independent IC game shoulder buttons. The REDMAGIC area in the middle is the Red Magic waist button.

In addition, the 450Hz touch sampling rate dual IC independent touch shoulder keys and the 500Hz touch sampling rate Red Magic waist keys can customize the button functions in the game. I prefer the one-key combo function, which is very useful when playing games. To operate the buttons, you only need to press and hold the game shoulder button or the Red Magic waist button, and there is no need to manually repeat the click moves.

If players want to cast screens to play games on the TV, Red Magic 6S Pro also designed a virtual controller function, which can be used as a wireless game controller in disguise.

Players can slide the function bar inside the game to call out the game toolbox. The Red Magic have prepared a variety of small functions, which can be quickly switched on and off by one button.

Nothing is more afraid of being immersed in a game than a sudden call or message. The game toolbox of Red Magic 6S Pro has the functions of “blocking notifications” and “blocking incoming calls”. Although playing games is cool, don’t miss the serial calls of your boss and girlfriend.

Red Magic 6S Pro’s game “small window hang” function, when you don’t need to pay attention to the game, but you don’t want to close it, you can swipe up with three fingers to directly hang the game window to do other things.

Similarly, there is the “screen off and hang up” function. After turning it on at night, you can just throw your phone while hanging the game and go to sleep with peace of mind.

These features with extremely low learning costs can be said to solve part of the needs of players, and it is possible to achieve both games and other entertainment in daily life.


From the specification point of view, the Red Magic 6S Pro uses a three-camera solution for the rear. The main camera lens is 64 Megapixels, and the secondary camera is 8 million ultra-wide-angle + 2 million macro lenses.

Let’s take a look at the photo proofs below. On a rainy day with normal light, the continuous rainy weather is more accurately restored, and the color performance and detail performance are acceptable. In the proofs taken on a sunny day with plenty of light, the pictures are colorful and show more details. In AI auto macro mode, the details of the stamens and petals are in place, but when shooting high-saturation color objects, the layering is easy to appear.

In the night scene that most tests the capabilities of the camera, the effect is acceptable, but when you look closely, you will find that the color and light control is not good enough. It is easy to have some small problems such as overexposure when shooting directly. It requires multiple manual focusing. There is room for further optimization.

However, from all aspects of comparison, the camera effect of the Red Magic 6S Pro has reached the effect of mainstream models. The built-in AI model can automatically recognize the scene. I recommend that you just turn on the camera and shoot directly, without having to turn on the dedicated mode.

After all, for gaming phones, taking pictures is not the key point. Usually, it is enough to meet the daily needs of scanning codes and recording.


 Charging test

The Red Magic 6S Pro has a built-in 4500 mAh battery and supports 120W wired ultra-fast flash charging. We collect data every 5 minutes.

The actual test starts from 3% of the battery, and it only takes 10 minutes to charge to 72%. From 80% to 100%, it enters trickle charging, and the speed slows down significantly. Even if it is fully charged, it only takes 20 minutes. The charging efficiency is very good.

Endurance test  For battery life, we use a professional battery life test tool-a a battery dog ​​produced by Kuai Technology for testing.

In the test items, we checked all test items including CPU high voltage, CPU multi-threading, AI recognition, picture browsing, video playback, and web browsing to simulate real usage scenarios and restore the real load to the greatest extent, which is infinitely close to the real power consumption.

For the battery dog, we check the limit power endurance test, manually 50% brightness, start the test from 100% power, and shut down after 7 hours and 41 minutes.

The battery capacity parameter may be a software recognition error, but according to the general user’s usage, it is completely adhered to intermittent use throughout the day, even if you continue to play games, you don’t have to worry about power issues.

The stockpiling has no difficulty and technical content for today’s high-end mobile phones, especially gaming phones, but how to ensure the performance release, especially the continuous and stable performance release, will test the overall design skills.

The Red Magic 6S Pro is equipped with its own unique ICE 7.0 nine-layer three-dimensional multi-dimensional heat dissipation system, which allows the “Fire Dragon” Snapdragon 888 Plus to fully release the performance, especially the use of n-21 ethane phase change materials, and the core CPU temperature is high. The variable material undergoes a phase change to store energy, and the stored energy is released after the temperature drops, effectively controlling the temperature of the core CPU, so that the temperature control is not triggered during the experience, and the performance score is significantly higher than that of the general Snapdragon 888 Plus. The grade, easily topped the list, really has a hand in heat dissipation tuning.

“Fire Dragon” encountered the Red Magic who prided themselves on “heat dissipation”, and the combination of the two heavens and ice produced a wonderful spark.

The minimum configuration version of the Red Magic 6S Pro is also equipped with 8GB of memory. You don’t have to worry about the game being killed when hanging in the background. The flagship UFS 3.1 also provides ultra-high-speed read and write performance, and you will not feel the lag in daily use. Appear.

The special function shoulder button design of the Red Magic has been upgraded to a 450Hz sampling rate compared with the previous generation, and the newly added Red Magic waist button with a touch sampling rate of 500Hz provides players with a more sensitive handle-type operation experience and makes the game operation even better. For simplicity. There are also some thoughtful small functions in the game toolbox, which also brings a more convenient experience.

The AMOLED screen with a 165Hz high brush and 720Hz multi-finger sampling rate is matched with the deeply optimized Red Magic OS 4.5 based on Android 11. No matter the daily experience or the game, the experience is extremely smooth and very comfortable.

Playing games is the most power-consuming, so the Red Magic 6S Pro is equipped with a large 4500mAh battery and a 120W fast-charging black cube gallium nitride charger. It only needs to charge for 10 minutes to recover blood to 70%. You don’t need to check the battery level after playing for a long time.

It is worth mentioning that the Red Magic 6S Pro also provides a “charging separation” function, which can bypass the battery and directly supply power to the phone, effectively reducing the heat generated during charging while playing games.

In general, the Red Magic 6S Pro has distinctive features, not only the ultimate stacking, but also the ultimate release of performance through the ultimate heat dissipation, plus the silky high-brush straight screen, intimate game assist function, large battery, and fast charging, so attentively As a poisoned game player, it’s really hard to resist.
