there is ... moreDespite having 865+ SoC Asus had lower Geekbench Benchmark score than Red Magic 5.
Besides, Lenovo has a lot more expertise on gaming, power management and cooling than ZTE NUBIA.
Ever wondered why Lenovo/Motorola's phones have so better battery efficiency and thermal ?
How are you going to hold the phone with two fans attached to it? So weird.

And let's not forget that cooling on a mobile phone has many limitations. In many cases the passive cooling do not directly cool the SoC, just transfers heat away from it (hence called passive). Gaming PCs can directly cool the CPU (active cooling) and gives increased performance more dramatically.
Also you can upgrade many gaming PCs (laptop/dekstop) more easily, whether it is replacing an SSD or the VGA/GPU.
Meanwhile their first Legion phone is barely getting updated lol. People are reporting bugs and are stuck a on an old security patch loool.
If you're going to splurge on a gaming phone, just get an Asus ROG 3.
Next year what???
4 cooling fans just to be better than Nubia Red Magic???
P C M, 03 Mar 2021ROG phones don't have active cooling.
So yes Legion should be better.Redmagic does have active cooling, yet falls short short compared to ROG phone 3.
there is a video in youtube comparing lots of phone thermal and ROG got the best result.

It's much more rational to just buy a gaming PC that will serve you longer.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2021Will this cooling system be better than ROG 5? ROG phones don't have active cooling.
So yes Legion should be better.
Snapdragon 888 is such a mess that it requires two fans to cool it down if you want more performance than 865 lol.

Ppl choose those big phones for a better viewing or they have big hands and same goes to laptop. Some are heavy bcs they're designed to run AAA games. Get a Macbook if u want a lightweight, compact and quiet laptop
Red Magic did it first and is already on its 6th iteration with more mature technology than Lienovo.
