[WATCH] REDMAGIC 7s Pro Gaming Phone Camera Performance
As a Macbook Air user for seven years now, it’s safe to say that PC gaming is something I can live without. Even on mobile, I rarely play open-world games, and I often resort to lighter or idle arcade games like Candy Crush and Cats and Soup.
My colleague, Sade, is at the other end of the spectrum. She bought a gaming laptop for the sole purpose of playing Genshin Impact.
She recently tested the REDMAGIC 7S Pro 18GB + 512GB and was impressed with the stark differences in performance of a gaming phone compared to your usual flagship phone, especially when it comes to managing a high performance game like Genshin Impact.
Built for battle
The REDMAGIC 7S Pro has an aviation aluminum frame and Gorilla Glass 5. As a gaming phone, it should enable fast reactions for battle, and more, while preventing the device from overheating.
Therefore, the phone has a touch sampling rate of 960 Hz with an integrated 20,000 rpm turbofan.
Using the phone’s 65W fast charger that comes in the box, its battery can go from 0-100% in just about an hour.
With a triple-camera setup on the back, it sports a 64MP main, 8MP ultra-wide and 16MP sub-front camera.
We recently took the 7S Pro out on a 2D1N trip to i-City theme park in Shah Alam. Here, we tested its camera performance to find out if the phone is more than just a gaming device.
At the WaterWorld waterslides, we found that the REDMAGIC 7S Pro’s main camera has a shutter speed fast enough to capture a clear shot despite our subjects’ rapid movements.
The colors captured in the photo are vibrant, with enough contrast to provide a clear image.
Next, we went to Snowalk to test the phone’s portrait mode where you can adjust the aperture settings to adjust the background blur of the photo. These shots are decent, although the software’s artificial blurring can get a little too much.
The House of Horror was the next step to verifying the performance of the cameras in low light situations. These shots were average, with enough detail captured for you to make out what you’re seeing in the photo.
We gave the phone another chance to take some low-light shots at night in the city of theme park digital lights.
By activating the night mode, it is obvious that the phone’s image processing software can preserve more details in the photos.
By tinkering a little more with the Pro mode, you can exercise more creativity with your shots by playing with shutter speeds, as we did.
With a still subject and decent lighting, the REDMAGIC 7S Pro takes photos that stand out well by most standards.
That’s great news for those looking to make the gaming phone their daily driver, as its high-performance nature makes it easily last an entire day, whether for work or play.
