ZTE’s wholly-owned subsidiary named Nubia launched its new gaming smartphone – Red Magic 6s under the Red Magic brand. It comes with top-notch specifications and can be compared with other top-tier gaming devices like the Asus Rog series. Today, we will compare the Asus Rog Phone 5s vs Red Magic 6S Pro. Apart from differences, both these smartphones have many things in common.  To begin with, both features the same SoC, i.e., the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus.

Also, both the devices run on Android 11 out of the box. However, the Asus Rog Phone 5s runs on Rog UI and the Red Magic 6S Pro on Red Magic OS. Further, both these smartphones have the top-end model with 18GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The Red Magic 6S Pro is lighter and also is slim when compared to the Rog Phone 5s. That said, the Rog Phone 5s features a 6.78″ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 144Hz. At the same time, the latter features a 6.8″ AMOLED display with a massive refresh rate of 165Hz. However, Asus has an edge in display quality, i.e., and it features one billion colors (10-bit panel), protection from Gorilla Glass Victus, and HDR10+ certification. In comparison, Red Magic has a lower 8-bit panel with DCI-P3 color gamut and protection from Gorilla Glass.

The similarities continue in the camera section too, i.e., both have a primary 64MP sensor. Asus has a Sony IMX 686 sensor and has a higher 13MP ultra-wide-angle sensor & a 5MP macro sensor. At the same time, the primary sensor is not mentioned by the Red Magic brand. It features a lower 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a depth sensor. Both get a similar charging speed, i.e., Asus has support for 65W, and Red Magic supports 66W. However, the China version of Red Magic features supports higher 120Hz fast charging tech. Both have a similar connectivity option, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, NFC, 3.5mm headphone jack, 5G, and more. Further, both get an in-display fingerprint scanner. Now, let us look into the differences between both these devices.

These are the differences between both these devices. As we said, the Nubia brand limits the top-end model to the Chinese market only. And the one with 120Hz is also limited for the Chinese model. The Asus Rog Phone 5s has a larger battery and comes with a 65W in the box. Nubia only provides a 30W charger in the box for the international variants. That’s it, we have mentioned all the similarities and differences between both these devices.

We hope our comparison of Asus ROG Phone 5s vs Red Magic 6s Pro might have proved useful. It would really help them to make a decision on which device to purchase.
