The Games to Play to Get That Full 144Hz Experience
Wondering how the REDMAGIC 5G’s industry leading 144Hz refresh rate on a 6.65 AMOLED display is going to affect your mobile gaming experience? It makes the display feel as smooth as butter as you scroll through windows or play through an intense game. Unbox Therapy described it as “very smooth and very snappy, when you pair 144Hz with Snapdragon 865, you're in business,” when he was unboxing the REDMAGIC 5G on his YouTube channel.

Having a 144Hz refresh rate means that the screen will refresh its display 144 times a second, regardless of the frames per second (FPS) of the game or video on screen. This means it is possible to reach speeds as high as 144FPS on a 144Hz screen. According to MKBHD, the REDMAGIC 5G’s 144Hz screen “is the fastest phone screen in the world, for sure, that’s a fact.” That’s a level of speed and smooth game play that has to be experienced in order to truly understand it.
Since not every game on the Google Play Store can play at 144FPS yet, here is a list of games that we have made here at REDMAGIC so you can get the most out of your 144Hz display on the REDMAGIC 5G:
Real Racing 3

Able to race against other players in real time and with thousands of possible events, you’ll be hard pressed to run out of things to do. You can even complete the immersive feel by making use of the REDMAGIC 5G’s shoulder buttons, mapping them to the accelerator and brake, giving you easy, full control over your car as you race to victory.

Into the Dead

In this flavor of the zombie apocalypse, there is only one option left for you to do, run, run, and run some more!
Into the Dead is a simple concept to understand, but like all good games that are simple to understand, they get hard fast. In this game, you need to run through an ever thickening horde of zombies, pick up helpful items as you see them and most importantly, don’t get caught by the zombies. It is a visually stunning game that plays so smoothly at 144FPS that you can almost feel like you are there, pushing your way through wooded forests, over fences or around zombies.
