Looks like the CN rom for the 6R finally got the Android 12 update. Who knows when the heck global is gonna get it. For the 6 and 6 pro the global rom didn't get android 12 until 9 months after the china rom lol. So I was wondering who wants to be the scapegoat and test it out for me? I can drop the link of the CN rom if you want. I specifically want to know how performance(most important) and optimization of the rom is with heavy games like Genshin etc. :)

Hello, just updated to CN Android 12 from global. But I cannot really state anything as I had just bought the device and went straight for the update. Although coming from global A11 I can definitely say that it contains loads of bloatware specific to CN and have many apps utilizing nubia services but again are specific to CN. In relation to gaming performance I found it not lacking at all since I'm coming from SD845. But will test Apex tonight and put in my findings. Also, the Nubia keyboard sucks. It as annoying as it can be because of weird CN shortcuts mapped and the keyboard is way too slow in response unlike Gboard.

Regards,

Hello, can i get the link for the CN Version from Android 12 for the red Magic 6r . I want to Test this Version and will give you a feedback. At the Moment , my red magic 6r is unusable for Gaming since i have installed the latest official global rom v1.24, beceause the Touch Delay was high and the Touch screen does not detect small movements. I had also sent the phone to the service but they did not soved the problem.

I have found the Website to Download the latest CN Firmware Update. Now the Touch screen bug is solved and i can use the phone for Gaming again 😁 . Also the Google playstore was further available 🤔

Google apps are not available in CN for obvious reasons and are required to be downloaded separately but is fairly easy.

I know, but before i installed the CN Rom, a global rom with Google apps was installed. After the Update, the playstore and Google Apps was further available in CN Rom 🤷‍♂️ . I had make a factory reset, After that, the Google Apps are lost.

Its also possible to use the CN Rom v6.10 to make a downgrade. Before i installed the CN rom, the global rom v1.24 was installed. I tried before to make a downgrade from v1.24 to v1.17 but it was not possible. But its possible to downgrade from CN Rom to global V1.17 😁

Reason: the global v1.24 has massive Touchscreen Probleme (he does not detect small movements)

Sorry for my english 🙈

Yeah I tried the CN rom once on a previous update months ago and I also had those same issues. I didn't like how many Chinese crapware was installed without a way to remove them and I absolutely hated the keyboard. What is it called Sugoi keyboard or whatever. After a ton of fiddling around I was able to get it to be in a QWERTY layout but I just gave up on it and installed Gboard. I'm thinking of moving to CN again just for the android 12 update but only if it gives a decent performance boost. Hence why I made the thread. Looking forward to your finding on the performance though :)

Good to hear. Back when I tried the CN rom way back, I also factory reset which removed google apps(since CN doesn't use google stuff) but I just found an apk for the playstore and all the other google apps I needed and it worked no problem. Are you still on the CN Rom 6.10 or did you downgrade back to a global rom? Can you tell me the gaming performance on the CN Rom. I'm curious if the android 12 and all those other game space improvements they did boosted performance.

I think the Performance is the same like Android 11. The phone gets hot on Android 11 and also on CN Android 12. I Play pubg at 90fps. On global v 1.17 i get a light throttling After 60 minutes of Gaming . On CN V6.10 (Android 12) i had not played this Long time, beceause my Focus was at the touchscreen reaction. But i think the phone throttles also on CN Android 12, beceause the phone gets very hot during gaming and without a fan it will destroy itself. The Gaming Center looks a Little bit different, but i have not invested enough time. Sorry 🙈 At the moment i‘m back on global v1.17, beceause in my opinion the touchscreen works best on this version.

I use this phone also only for gaming, like a Gameboy. To make calls or write messages, i use a other phone. So I can nothing to tell about the battery life on CN Android 12.

Tried Apex Legends on full settings and turned every feature on. The game went pretty smooth with no FPS drops at all. But I just played like 2 matches and the phone wasn't hot as well. The charger was connected with powermode set as "Rise" and "Charge Separation" enabled. Had fun btw. Also, there's this new mascot which wasn't there before and looks kinda annoying instead of intriguing. The phone sometimes locks itself just after I've unlocked it with Fingerprint and needs to be unlocked again. Also, I had to manually adjust all Google apps notification settings and some other apps too because they won't share any notifications on lock screen. Disabled all the CN gunk or uninstalled if available. Gamespace has lots of good features and I admire all of them, don't know if they were present in the Global rom. And finally strangely I'm not able to delete or copy files to the Android folder. Which wasn't an issue on any of my previous unrooted phones. 🤔
