[WATCH] Camera performance of the REDMAGIC 7s Pro gaming phone

Having been a Macbook Air user for seven years now, it’s safe to say that PC gaming is something I can do without. Even on mobile devices, I rarely play open world games and often resort to lighter or idle arcade games like Candy Crush and Cats and Soup.

My colleague, Sade, is on the other end of the spectrum. He bought a gaming laptop for the sole purpose of playing Genshin Impact.

She recently tested the 18GB + 512GB REDMAGIC 7S Pro and was struck by the strong differences in the performance of a gaming phone compared to your regular flagship, especially when it comes to handling a high-performance game like Genshin Impact .

Built for battle

The REDMAGIC 7S Pro has an aircraft-grade aluminum frame and Gorilla Glass 5. Being a gaming phone, it has to adapt to quick reactions for battle and more, while preventing the device from overheating.

Hence, the phone has a touch sampling rate of 960Hz with a built-in 20,000 RPM turbofan.

Using the phone’s 65W fast charger included in the box, the battery can go from 0 to 100% in just an hour.

With a triple camera setup on the back, it features a main 64MP, 8MP ultrawide and 16MP under-display front camera.

We recently took the 7S Pro on a 2D1N trip to the i-City theme park in Shah Alam. Here, we tested its camera’s performance to find out if the phone is more than just a gaming device.

Quick shots

At the waterslides at WaterWorld, we found that the REDMAGIC 7S Pro’s main camera has a shutter speed fast enough to take clear photos despite our subjects’ quick movements.

The colors captured in the photo are vivid, with good enough contrast to provide a sharp image.

Next, we moved on to Snowalk to test the phone’s portrait mode where you can adjust the aperture settings to change the background blur of the photo. These shots turned out to be decent, although the artificial blurring of the software can get a little too much.

The House Of Horror was the next stop to see how the cameras performed in low light conditions. These shots were average, with enough detail captured for you to understand what you are seeing in the photo.

We gave the phone another chance to take low-light photos at night at the City of Digital Lights theme park.

By activating the night mode, it is evident that the image processing software of the phone can preserve more details in the photos.

By tinkering a bit more with the Pro mode, you can exercise more creativity with your shots when playing with shutter speeds, like we did.

With a steady subject and decent lighting, REDMAGIC 7S Pro takes photos that look good by most standards.

This is great news for those looking to make the gaming phone their daily driver, as its high-performance nature ensures it easily lasts a full day for both work and play.
