nubia Red Magic 7S Pro review

However, a few major upgrades will make you want to get the 7S Pro instead of the 7 Pro if you're in the market for a gaming-focused smartphone.

The most obvious and probably important one is the chipset.

The 7S Pro is powered by the updated Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which is manufactured on TSMC's 4nm manufacturing process.

The standard SD 8 Gen 1 Samsung was doing, and now, Qualcomm claims TSMC has 30% better efficiency than the original SoC thanks to its improved node.

It would be interesting to compare the test results between the 7 Pro and 7S Pro as both the handsets have mostly similar hardware except for the chipset.

And when we say mostly, we mean pretty much everything else.  Except for the new paint job, there's very little that sets the 7S Pro and 7 Pro apart.

The good news is that the minor upgrade doesn't come at an extra cost as the 7S Pro costs the same as the 7 Pro.

The box is identical to the one that holds the standard edition and has the same things - the user manual, 65W Power Delivery 3.0 charger, and the associated USB-C to USB-C cable.

The transparent silicone case is also on hand, which is good as it won't completely hide the design.
