Red Magic 5G review: A beautifully flawed beast of a gaming phone

We’ve been lucky to spend a few weeks with the rather ostentatious Red Magic 5G gaming phone and besides being rather bold and garish, and perhaps slightly underdone on the software side of things, it’s an incredible phone. The Red Magic 5G has flagship specs such as the Snapdragon 865 processor, 12GB of RAM, and […]
