The Red Magic 3S is a smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, a 5,000 mAh battery, a least 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.0 storage, a 48MP camera, a metal chassis, and a 6.65 inch, 2340 x 1080 pixel AMOLED display with a 90Hz screen refresh rate. In other words, if you can get past the gaming aesthetic in this phone's design (including an angular rear cover with an RGB light strip down the middle), it's just a phone with flagship-class specs at a surprisingly low price. The starting price gets you a model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but you can also pick up a 12GB/256GB model for $599.
In the thriving mobile gaming industry which has gone from strength to strength over the last ten years, three genres have emerged which are more successful than any others. Few would be surprised to hear that puzzle, strategy, and first-person shooter games are near the top of the tree in terms of revenue generated. Some of the biggest mobile games of all time including Candy Crush, Clash of Clans, and PUBG Mobile belong to these genres. The question is, will these types of game continue to dominate, or will another genre come along and usurp them?
The Galaxy Note 10 Plus is Samsung's biggest, boldest Galaxy Note yet. It has a slimmer design, more screen than ever before, and an S Pen that has learned some new tricks. Almost all of its new features are in the name of refinement, but that refinement is dictated by design and mass-market appeal, not necessarily by functionality.
But when you look at everything as a whole, it's clear what guided the direction of the Note this generation. With the Note 9, Samsung slung huge banner ads reading “4,000mAh” and “1TB.” These were the major selling points for the phone. With the 10 series, it's not about that at all. The Note 10 Plus is still better than ever, because if it wasn't Samsung's “best Note ever,” it wouldn't sell any units. But if you look at the key marketing points of the Note 10 series, it is all about design.
