Nubia Red Magic 3S Review

The Nubia Red Magic 3S is a massive hit in Asia among smartphone gamers and now is also expanding in Europe and America as well. In fact, Nubia is calling the device the ultimate gaming phone and quite frankly it is the dream of every gamer. Top specs, great display and huge battery are only some of the highlights of this special device.

Design & Build Quality

Comes with a beautiful 6.65-inch AMOLED display, 90Hz refresh rate, 19.5:9 ratio, density of PPI 388 and a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels (FHD+). It supports 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut and HDR visual effects, providing a delicate and stunning visual experience. On the back, the air-inlet was designed so that the air exchange capacity is increased by 10%. Also on the back, we find the fingerprint sensor and the 16.8 million colours RGB light strip along with the Red Magic Eye LOGO light that can be flashed according to different game rhythms. And as long as colors are concerned, you choose between three different variations: Silver, Red and Black.

Even though the Red Magic 3 is a big phone with its dimensions of 171.7mm x 78.5mm x 9.65mm is handy and with a sportive and gaming character. Weights 215g, that’s 20g more than a Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, just for a comparison.

Red Magic 3S Performance

Powered by the Snapdragon 855+ you expect nothing less than the fastest device you can have. And Nubia in order to achieve that added also 8 or 12 GB of RAM LPDDR4X and 256 GB of UFS3.0 internal memory that also reduces power consumption. For the benchmark lovers, the Antutu rank achieves an impressive 510.000+. And since benchmarks aren’t everything, the real life performance of the RM3S is impressive. No lags or stutters, with super smooth animations and a great responsive time of the screen touch. Perfect for gaming since you can create two virtual hotkeys via the side capacitive touch button and adding rear fingerprint as a game button too!

Red Magic 3S Specs and Performance

Heat Dissipation

Nubia’s design has more than 33 patents! The liquid cooling system is assisted by one active fan and in combo with the GameBoost software, cleverly optimizes the smartphone to guarantee the highest level gaming experience. The fan is located just below the logo while we have exhausts on both sides: top and bottom.

Camera

Since this is a gaming smartphone, there is just a single camera setup on the back. With a Sony IMX586 sensor of 48 mega-pixels and an aperture of f/1.7 you can capture great photos, especially during the day where the light conditions are better. And for your selfies, there is a 16 mega-pixels sensor on the front of the phone too. The quality in both cases is great with good lighting but eventually drops at night.

Nubia Red Magic 3S cooling

Audio & Connectivity

The Nubia Red Magic 3S comes with two front speakers, which offer an immersive sensation during gaming of while watching movies. That’s mainly thanks to the high volume, the effect stereo (DTS XU1tra sound) and to the good balance of the frequencies, especially regarding the bass. Connectivity includes LTE 4G up to 2000 Mbps, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi ac Dual Band, USB Type-C 2.0, GPS / A-GPS / GLONASS / BDS / Galileo.

Other than the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, there is also present facial recognition 2D, which turns out to be very fast and precise in conditions of good brightness. And more great news, there is a port for the audio jack too so you can still use your head/earphones.

Nubia offers also a full line-up of additional accessories which unfortunately I never had the chance to really test. They seem great though and complete the gaming experience to the max.

Red Magic 3S connectivity

Battery Life

With a massive 5000 mAh battery, the Nubia Red Magic 3S offers a great autonomy. With medium / intense use you will make it easily to a full day of usage. And while it supports a quick charge up to 27W, the included power supply is 18W which still is fast enough to fully charge the device in 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Red Magic 3S Final Thoughts

The Nubia Red Magic 3 is the phone that every smartphone gamer dreams. Bundle it with a good pair of gaming headphones and you are good to go. And for this price, the Nubia Red Magic 3 is value for money offering also great battery life that every gamer wishes. The variant of 8 /128 GB is a bargain while also the 12 / 256 is a great price too. Whichever you get, you wont be dissapointed!

What’s the difference between Android TV, Android TV Box and Fire TV? In the following video we talk about the differences of these so close but also different Android streaming devices that are so popular. They all share basically the same operating system, Android OS by Google but it comes in three different styles. Users can be very confused by these three different devices and selecting the correct one is usually a hard task. Also there is a lot of confusion when we talk about Android TV and Android TV Boxes. And while Fire TV by Amazon seems so different, is it really?

Get the Best Apple TV Feature on Android TV and Android TV Box for free! When it comes to cosmetics, Apple is perhaps the best and this awesome feature is one of my preferred on an Apple TV 4K. But now, with this free to use Android app we can have the same feature also on Android TV OS devices like the Nvidia Shield TV and the Xiaomi Mi Box S as well as on any Android TV Box.

Best Apple TV Feature: Screensaver

The amazing Aerial Dream application offers the fantastic Apple TV Screensaver to your Android TV device. The screensaver videos are offered in Full HD 1080p resolution but also in UHD 4K resolution. Just enter inside the settings and you can select whether you want to use the Full HD or the 4K videos. Also you can choose from the screensaver from the different Apple TV models: Apple TV 2019, Apple TV 2018, Apple TV 2017 and Apple TV 2015.

The only negative in my opinion is that the videos are always streamed from the Apple server. That means that you consume bandwidth when your device is in screensaver mode. Not an issue for me since I have a broadband connection but if your connection has data limits it may cause high traffic.

*Please note*: Aerial Dream streams videos constantly and will consume large amounts of bandwidth. Do not install on devices with limited network connectivity.

A screensaver for Android devices inspired on Apple TV’s video screensaver

Currently the displayed videos are the exact same used by Apple TV. Though the videos are relatively small (below 200MB), it’s still recommended that you have an appropriate internet plan so that you do not incur in extra costs. Most home or WiFi connections should be ok, while mobile data could be a problem. The videos are hosted by Apple Inc. openly and without any sort of encryption or other form of protection, therefore this use is assumed to be legitimate.
If you have reason to believe otherwise please let me know.

How to set Aerial Dream as your screensaver

  • Go into the System Preferences
  • Select Display
  • Select Daydream
  • Select Aerial Dream

More IPTV Free and Premium Apps

For more Live TV / IPTV apps you can have a look into the dedicated IPTV section we have created. Needless to say, Premium services are more stable but for a price. While watching for free is amazing, when it comes to IPTV the costs are so high so it is impossible to find a free reliable service.

More Android Apps

Did you like Typhoon TV apk? Then you can download Android apk (applications) that are very useful and you cannot find in the Google Play Store. Like an Android TV OS web browser (Firefox for Android TV, Silk Browser, Opera Browser). Or even streaming apk for movies, tv shows and live tv, gaming emulators, Android launchers, file managers and a lot of useful applications. All apk files have been scanned and are virus-free. Simply visit our dedicated section here.

The Amazon Fire Stick provides an easy and inexpensive way to stream live TV, movies, series and all kind of media. That is why I recommend it as one of the best TV Boxes that you can get. However, due to its limited memory storage, it may experience certain performance issues. That is mainly because is being loaded up with too many apps or downloads. This is a reason of why you might need to reset the Fire Stick to its factory defaults. To free up its memory and get it working like new again. This is a super easy process to do. Just follow the following tutorial on how to reset Fire Stick and Fire TV devices from Amazon.

Also if you need to sell your Amazon Fire Stick / Fire TV device it is highly recommended you reset your device. By resetting your Fire Stick device you will return to a Factory Defaults state. That means you will erase any personal data, app or information in general that you obviously do not want to pass to the next user of your device.

Reset To Factory Defaults

Pay attention though. If you reset your Fire Stick / Fire TV device to the Factory Defaults you will lose any personal preferences, apps and most importantly sign-in information!

Reset Fire Stick Fire TV Factory Defaults

How To Reset Fire Stick & Fire TV

  • Go to Settings.
  • Then select Device.
  • Now scroll down and select Reset to Factory Defaults.
  • If you have a PIN set up, enter it. If not skip this step.
  • Select Reset.
  • Wait for the reset to take place and you’re done!

How To Reset Fire Stick & Fire TV Method 2

There is also an easier way if you want to use a shortcut that Amazon developers supply. This method doesn’t work across all devices so I decided to have it as a second option here:

  • Press and hold the Back and Right buttons from your remote simultaneously.
  • Keep pressing for about 10 seconds until the reset screen appears.
  • Now select Reset.
  • Wait for the reset to take place and you’re done!

Congrats! Your Amazon Fire Stick / Fire TV / Fire TV Cube device is now to its original factory settings. You erased your sign-in information, apps and personal preferences. If you plan into using your device again you should enter all of your personal information from scratch and download the apps you like. So, you might consider visiting our Download section for apps. Those can be very useful also for the Fire Stick / Fire TV devices here.

Android 10 On Android TV

Android 10 is out and Google has kept its promise as of this September announcing Android 10 on Android TV until the end of the year. After taking a while for Android 9 Pie in order to arrive also on Android TV devices, this time Google delivered in time the latest version of Android. As Android TV becomes day by day more popular so is Google’s plans for the platform.

“When Android TV was first introduced in 2014, we set out to bring the best of Android into the connected home on the TV,” Google wrote in their Android TV OS blog post. “We worked closely with the developer community to grow our content and app ecosystem and bring users the content they want. Since then, we’ve seen tremendous momentum with OEM and operator partners as well as consumer adoption worldwide.”

Nexus Player Evolution – The ADT-3

To make sure developers have the ability to build and test Android TV app implementations on Android 10 prior to rollout, Google introduced a new, developer-focused streaming media device called ADT-3.

With a quad-core A53, 2GB of DDR3 memory and 4Kp60 HDR HDMI 2.1 output, Google designed this pre-certified TV dongle with updates and security patches to help developers design for the next generation of Android TV devices. That is extremely helpful for third-party manufacturers like Nvidia, Xiaomi, Sony, etc but also for app developers. But do not expect to be able to get one as a consumer. The super small device is only for developers. And as more and more people are wishing for a Pixel TV device, for now the only real device that delivers all the latest updates is still the Nvidia Shield TV.

What Is NOVA TV apk?

Nova TV apk is one of the best terrarium alternatives you can find on 2019. Released just this last month, NovaTV brings all the glory of Terrarium under an improved user interface, yet very similar to the Terrarium TV apk. So if you loved Terrarium, you will also love Nova TV as well. Nova TV works great with any Android device. I was really impressed by how NovaTV works, it essential beats similar apps like Showbox and Terrarium TV. And while the war on IPTV after the Xtream Codes case is still ongoing, these streaming apk seem to booming more than ever in 2019!

Nova TV apk user interface on smartphone

Nova TV v1.0.9 features

Some great features that I love and some apks usually do not support is Trakt and Real Debrid integration. And I’m glad to say that NOVA supports them both without issues. That doesn’t mean that you cannot use the application without a Debrid account. You will still get a lot of streams even though since I moved to Real Debrid and Premiumize it really changed my streaming standards.

No Downloads

But there is also a negative when comparing NOVA TV with Terrarium TV. For some maybe be a turn-off but fact is that you cannot download a stream, whether that is a movie or a tv show. But since this is a very new apk, that may be fixed in an upcoming version so we will keep an eye on that too.

Compatibility With All Android Devices

As far as compatibility goes, it will essentially work on any Android device. I made some tests on an Android smartphone, a tablet and even on a standard Android TV Box and in fact all worked perfectly. Then I moved on testing the app on Android TV devices like the Nvidia Shield TV and the Xiaomi Mi Box S. Both had no issues and the whole experience was great. Lastly I also installed the NOVA TV apk on my Firestick using of course the Downloader app and also I can confirm that works great with the remote and I have noticed no issues with the streaming. Great and wide compatibility with any device!

Is It Safe?

Yes, Nova TV apk is a safe to use app. But one thing to consider, when using this app as any streaming apk, is your online privacy. So you should always use a VPN to protect your identity and security when streaming free videos online. So if you consider protecting your internet identity and demand high quality privacy, then protect your online presence with a trusted VPN service like IP Vanish or Private Internet Access. Both are paid services but guarantee your online anonymity without keeping logs or paid records!

Why I will not buy the New Nvidia Shield TV 2019

The 2015 Nvidia Shield TV came from the future. But the New Nvidia Shield TV 2019 came from…the past!

Before getting into the video I need to say 2 things. The 1st is that I am a big Nvidia Shield TV fan and I am very disappointed into making this video and 2nd that I already own 2 Nvidia Shield TV devices: The nvidia Shield TV 2015 and the Nvidia Shield TV PRO. Both have been serving me daily with great success and while they are top performers, in these 4 years almost 5 to be exact, I loved them even more. That is because as any device, especially a streaming / gaming device, had some minor issues but with the constant updates Nvidia has fixed everything and added even more. The Nvidia support on both devices has been incredible and no other company has ever done such an amazing work on supporting their devices. With every update they keep up with Android’s latest security patches and keep improving the performance while also adding new and exciting features. And one more thing that needs to be said, is that the Nvidia Shield TV has a great community that has an active part on improving the device. The Nvidia team gives big importance to the community and they always consider opinions and requests in order to deliver the best support in the streaming and cable cutting community. Without Nvidia, Android TV would never be so great at this point of time.

Nvidia Shield TV 2015 version

As mentioned before, the 2015 Shield TV really came from the future. With a stellar performance that was not even close to the next streaming devices that were powered by Amlogic, AllWinner or Rockchip SoC’s. That was thanks to an exceptional GPU with 256 CUDA cores, the Tegra X1 CPU, 3 GB of RAM, 2 X USB 3.0, micro USB 2.0, SD card slot, IR receiver, HDMI 2.0b, Gigabit Ethernet and Dual Band AC WiFi a 16GB SSD for the “normal version” or a 500GB hd for the PRO version, the 2015 Shield was a device made by aliens!

nvidia shield tv 2015 vs 2017

2017 Update

Then unfortunately with the update of the device we noticed also some minor cut backs. So, we lost the SD card slot and the micro USB for the 16GB version of Nvidia’s Shield TV 2017, that remained only to the PRO version until we lost also the PRO version completely. The remote control passed from a rechargeable battery to a 2 X CR-2032 3V battery which for some people was better, for me personally wasn’t an improvement, I hate it when I need to get new batteries when I can easily charge the device every now and then.

Nvidia Shield TV Pro 2019

The New 2019 Nvidia Shield TV

And now the brand new Nvidia Shield TV 2019 comes out in two versions. A $150 Nvidia Shield TV which is essentially a cylindrical TV Dongle which I would have loved if it was 50-80$ cheaper even though it lacks a USB port and comes with 2GB of RAM and a merely 8GB of internal storage. The Nvidia Shield TV PRO on the other hand still lacks in everything if compared with the 2015 model except for the new CPU Tegra X1+, the addition of Dolby Vision and the new feature the AI Upscale. While the AI upscale and Dolby Vision are both great features, I don’t think it is something that is worth upgrading from my 2015 model. You get the same small SSD of 16GB (hello!? This 2019!!!) The new CPU on the other part is faster and Nvidia claims that is about 25% faster than the previous generation. While going through various benchmarks that can be easily found online, the actual difference seems to be less. At best at around 10% but main thing is that the real-life performance is actually the same. And overall as a device compared with the 2015 model, we lost the included gamepad, the SD card slot (which for some reason is available only to the small model) which was really handy to have. Now if you do not have a Nvidia Shield TV then by all means, the 2019 model is a great buy for $199. You can have an incredible experience in streaming and of course gaming with the Nvidia Games is absolutely phenomenal. Also, it is worth mentioning, as I have already written to an article on my website Google Stadia will also launch too. But at the same time I think that the 2015 would have been a better choice if it was available in the market, even at the same price. Streaming and gaming performance would be the same, you would have more connectivity options as long as the Dolby Vision addition is not that important to you.

The positive about the Shield TV 2019

What it is a great addition on both 2019 Shield TV and Shield TV PRO is the new remote control. While I may not love the Toblerone looks of it, it seems much easier to use and with some extra buttons that are greatly appreciated. And this time, at least the batteries are AAA that can be found way easier than the CR-types. My only objection is that the appreciated remote finder would work with a physical button on the device, instead from the UI which means you still need a remote to find your remote!? But great news is that the new remote control will be also sold separately for $29.99 and works with older models as well. When it comes to Nvidia you have to give it to them. Even though they launch new products, they still support exceptionally the older models as well. While I will not upgrade to the new Nvidia Shield TV 2019, I will still suggest it as a best buy because it blows the competition. But I am also disappointed since I was definitely was expecting more. Maybe with the launch of the upcoming Nintendo Switch, with which they usually share the same SoC, we will get another device from the future. But for now, I’m gonna stick with my older models which I expect to gain value in the used marketplace too!

What do you think?

Will you upgrade to the new Shield TV and if yes to which model? Also if you are new to the amazing world of Android TV, will the new models be your next companion?
