Talking about the competition in this price range of around 30K, the real competitors of this smartphone are Poco F1 and Asus Zenfone 5Z.
If compared with the competition, both Poco F1 and Asus Zenfone 5Z excel in term of performance because of new Snapdragon 845 SoC whereas Nubia Red Magic still uses last year’s processor i.e. Snapdragon 835 SoC. Also, the single rear camera seems bit low.
Overall, We don’t recommend Nubia Red Magic to buy in this price range. However, at the time of writing this article, our first recommendation will be Poco F1 (Flash Review).
