How Durable is the nubia Red Magic 9 Pro? The Gaming Smartphone Aces JerryRigEverything’s Durability Test (Video)

Global Launch of Red Magic 9 Pro Gaming Smartphone

A few days ago, Nubia globally launched its latest addition to their gaming smartphone lineup, the Red Magic 9 Pro. It is the first gaming phone on the market to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. It appears that the device has already reached international YouTubers, including JerryRigEverything, and has been subjected to durability tests in his latest video. More details are provided below.

Build Quality of the Red Magic 9 Pro

The Red Magic 9 Pro is crafted from premium materials, featuring an aluminum frame and glass on both the front and back. The device’s glass panel starts to show scratches at level 6 on the Mohs hardness scale when tested with metal picks, which is not surprising as most devices with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus exhibit similar durability.

Zack’s Durability Testing of Red Magic 9 Pro

Zack, the real name of the YouTuber, showcases the RGB cooler on the side of the phone and also puts it to the test. It’s easily accessible and can be locked, posing no significant risk to gamers. The lighter test might seem somewhat irrelevant, but what’s interesting is that the fingerprint sensor continues to work even after the display area where it’s integrated has been excessively scratched.

Bend Test Success for Red Magic 9 Pro

The true test of endurance comes with the bend test, and the Red Magic 9 Pro passes with flying colors. It doesn’t bend whether pressure is applied from the front or the back, indicating thoughtful and robust design. This result is impressive, especially considering that just a year ago, the ASUS ROG Phone 6 Pro could be easily snapped in half during such a durability test.
