ASUS, Gaming
After the arrival of Razer phone last year, other mobile phone manufacturers are in play to create their own version of gaming phones.

Enter The Red Magic Dimension, A Gaming Phone by Nubia

Gaming, Nubia
Looks like 2018 is beginning to look like the year for gaming smartphones to emerge. Recently we welcomed the arrival of Xiaomi's own gaming phone, the Black Shark and now, Nubia has unveiled their own version of a gaming phone.

Unlike the Black Shark, the design for the Red Magic is inspired more like a battleship, a little more "edgy" I would say. The back of the phone looks impressive and it includes a strip of colourful LED running across the back. The LED is of course can be configured to produce the ...

So what's the deal with Xiaomi's new "subrand" Black Shark? The specifications for Xiaomi's new Black Shark is by all means great. It surpassed most of the newest phones in terms of hardware specifications. And it is specially made for gaming in mind. Let's have a look at the key specifications and features. Chipset: Late...
