Design

The Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro has an intimidating look. It has a high screen-to-body ratio, a front camera located under the screen, and narrow bezels around the display. This phone is built with an aluminum frame and a glass back. The phone consists of pressure-sensitive zones that you can use as triggers, with a touch sampling rate of 520 Hz. The middle frame is made from aviation aluminum. The Asus ROG Phone 6D is not very impressive for average users because of its thicker bezels around the display, but it is designed for gamers.

It has native 4.0 storage, up to 12 GB of RAM, and up to 256 GB.

The Asus ROG Phone 6D chipset isn't as good as the Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro.the Dimensity 9000+ by Mediatek, running at 3.35 GHz and built with a 4 nm production process. But it has more RAM than the Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro. It has up to 16 GB of RAM and NTFS support for external storage.

I find the Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro better because of the cooling fan for the purpose of reducing heat.
