And thanks to modern high-end gaming smartphones, all this has become possible. If we talk about gaming devices, you can only choose from certain options.
The Nubia Red Magic is one such line of gaming smartphones. It rivals the Black Shark and Asus ROG series. What makes the Nubia Red Magic 3 special is the dedicated red painted gaming slider and air triggers providing haptic feedback.
In this article, we share some tips and tricks for you to get the most out of the Red Magic 3 gaming mode.
How to activate game mode
Activating the game mode is quite simple. You just need to drag the play key on the left panel. You get a plethora of features that can enhance the gaming experience on the device.
The first page shows you the map list where you can add any downloaded game. We tested the device with a few graphics-intensive games like PUBG, Modern Combat 5, and Asphalt 9. You can not only adjust the game controls, but also the fan.
Nubia Red Magic 3 Gaming Space ‘Personal Center’ Tips and Tricks
There are a bunch of controls you’ll find on the first page of the game mode besides the games map. At the bottom of the screen, you have the option “Cooling Fan”, Interstellar Belt, RedMagic Time and Block Calls. At the top of the screen you get options for the Red Magic game handle and “Personal Center”.
The personal center offers several functions such as fan settings, recording settings and basic settings. If you’re a heavy gamer and want your device to stay cool for extended sessions, the “Fan” feature is what you need to tweak.
This mode has a “smart adjustment” feature that allows the device to adjust the fan speed based on the CPU temperature.
Another feature available in this mode is fast cooling whose main function is to activate the maximum fan speed. You can also change settings for recordings using this Personal Center window.
For example, you can select video quality and also save Game Full and Game Death video. While the first displays the full gameplay, the second records the deaths in a game.
Finally, the basic mode gives you the option to select the serene refresh rate between Auto, 60 fps and 90 fps. It can also be used to turn on the Competitive Atmosphere LED (LED flashes when the game key is on) and also disable/enable Constant Brightness Protection (Close Auto Brightness).
Additional Features of Nubia Red Magic 3 Gaming Space
Game space mode has a myriad of options hidden inside a smart slider. You need to swipe left from the right edge of the screen to bring up this window. It displays useful information such as device temperature, network speed, CPU and GPU performance.
There’s also a slider to adjust the screen brightness, so you don’t have to pull down the notification bar separately for the same.
The device also has a 4D shock feature, but it is limited to a handful of games like Knives out, Asphalt 9, PUBG Mobile, and QQ Speed only. It remains to be seen if this mode will be supported for additional games in the future. You can change the haptic feedback to your needs using this mode.
Interestingly, this smart slider also has a WhatsApp shortcut. It opens a small chat window in the left corner which you can also expand if needed. Other features offered by the smart slider include standby, docking station, SuperSnap and blocked calls, etc.
