Design & Display
Red Magic 8 Pro wins design comparison. Its glass back and metal frame are high-quality (to be exact, it is aviation aluminum). Its front camera is hidden under the display, and its bezels are practically undetectable. Amazingly, the rear side has a translucent color choice. The Asus ROG Phone 6’s bigger bezels make it less stunning. Still, its RGB lighting and quality materials (glass for the back, covered by Gorilla Glass, and an aluminum frame) make it a fascinating phone. It has IPX4 water resistance.
The ASUS ROG Phone 6’s display is superior to that of the Red Magic 8 Pro when you’re looking at it. This device features a 6.78-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 165 hertz. The RED MAGIC 8 Pro has a smaller 120Hz display but a bigger 6.8-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen. When comparing the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 used by the RED MAGIC 8 Pro with the Corning Gorilla Glass Victus used by the ASUS ROG Phone, the latter is the superior option.

Both phones have good cameras, but the Asus ROG Phone 6 offers a few more perks. It contains a 50-megapixel primary sensor and two additional, higher-resolution sensors (one ultrawide, 13 megapixels, and one macro, 5 megapixels) for improved precision.
