REDMAGIC 8S Pro Is Amazing for Gaming and Great as a Daily Driver

REDMAGIC 8S Pro - Your Great Daily Driver

What makes a phone ideal for daily use? According to the list of the best smartphones of 2023 compiled by the reviewers at Tech Advisor, it’s a combination of a few features including battery life, screen display quality, and onboard storage space. Keeping these and other specs in mind, we’ll explore the REDMAGIC 8S Pro as more than just a gaming smartphone, but as an everyday phone that meets all your basic needs.


Long Lasting Battery

Five of the devices on the list of best phones of 2023 are said to have “outstanding, solid, and strong” battery life, but none of them even come close to the 6000 mAh provided by the  REDMAGIC 8S Pro. The closest competitor has a maximum of 5000 mAh, and that too with only a 45W fast charge that takes the battery from 0-65% in 30 minutes. Tests conducted in the REDMAGIC Lab show that the REDMAGIC 8 Pro and 8S Pro’s 6000 mAh battery delivers a long-lasting 20 hours of battery life between charges, and the 65W fast charge capability ensures that you can go from 0-100% in as little as 45 minutes. 


The large battery comes in handy during extended periods of gaming, but without the demands of the game draining your device, you can have more juice than the average person for way longer. According to user feedback on Reddit, the REDMAIC 8 Pro’s 6000 mAh battery delivers sufficient battery performance that allows it to function all day without an additional charge.


Impressive Display

A 120Hz display is the best way to enjoy the full potential of what the internet has to offer, especially when it comes to scrolling through social media feeds, uploading or downloading content or data, or just enjoying a video with no lagging. It’s quite surprising to see that some of the best phones of 2023 have 90 Hz and even as low as 60 Hz displays. 


Not only does the  REDMAGIC 8S Pro have a flagship 120 Hz screen refresh rate, but it’s also one of the only devices with a completely notch-less display, allowing you to fully enjoy the content on your 6.8-inch screen. The screen reaches peak brightness at 1300 nits making it suitable to use in bright settings like taking pictures outdoors.


Fast Processor

The  REDMAGIC 8S Pro is the first smartphone outside of Samsung to utilize the fastest Snapdragon chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Leading Version. It is also among the only devices to have a thermal control system that can handle the demands of the powerful chipset, which gives it an advantage over a majority of the devices that will use the chipset. 


Paired with the quick 120 Hz screen refresh rate, the faster processor allows you to browse the web, run apps, and stream content much faster than ever before, plus it can also enhance video calls and Zoom meetings by delivering smooth, lag-free experiences. 


Competitive Flagship Price


A flagship smartphone is quite often the top of the line and features a combination of the best specs any particular manufacturer has to offer. An article on GSM Arena highlighting 8 of the Best Flagship Phones of 2023 reveals that the highest of high-end smartphones retail for no less than $859 for 265 GB of storage and 6GB of RAM, and can cost as much as $2599 for 256 GB of storage and 12GB of RAM.


The  REDMAGIC 8S Pro is a flagship smartphone with one of the most competitive prices on the market. You’ll get a majority of the benefits provided by other flagships, including the industry standard 120Hz screen refresh rate, 256GB of storage, and 12GB of RAM for the retail price of $649. 


Speaking about the REDMAGIC 8 Pro, Nite-Ninja on Reddit says that “having 512 GB in an affordable package was very important to me”, stating that the storage capacity, the creative flexibility the device offers, and the 2-day battery life make it an excellent daily driver.


A Device That Stands Out


In addition to being the ultimate gaming smartphone, the  REDMAGIC 8S Pro is excellent for use off the battlefield. It has a unique futuristic construction that’s been described as sharp and harsh, to convince you that this is a serious device, but the design is subtle enough to blend into your everyday lifestyle.
