ZTE Nubia Red Magic gaming smartphone


The Price of ZTE Nubia Red Magic is now $390 USD.


The Nubia Red Magic is a very nice phone good for gaming and it’s affordable when compared to other phone devices in same category. However, I am not very impressed at the battery capacity which is slightly below my minimum requirement for a long lasting phone battery.
