I have been using the Nubia Red Magic 5S for a few days now and my early impressions have been positive. This phone is the literal definition of a beast. It's fast, smooth and the high refresh rate makes it a joy to use. I'm working on the full review but for now, here are some early unboxing photos of the phone.
