Xiaomi brand Black Shark is playing the affordable game this year with its latest game-focused smartphone, Black Shark 4. Unlike the Pro model, this one is getting a global release and its price significantly undercuts its direct competitors. But how good can it be, all things considered?
Well, of course, we wanted to find out, so we went ahead and wrote a thorough review of it. And now we are also releasing the video review for those who have a short time. As usual, this is much more concise while still containing all the important bits and pieces of info you need to know about the phone.
Black Shark 4 certainly has a lot of Hz, par for the course in gaming land, as well as a very bright (if not record-breaking) Super AMOLED screen, but interestingly enough uses last year’s flagship chipset (repackaged as Snapdragon) 870), and not the absolute top 2021 line offer. It also has physical pop-up game triggers and incredible 120W charging support (0 to 100 in 17 minutes!), But the battery size itself is not very impressive at just 4,500 mAh. So it looks like a mixed bag, but check out our video above to see what we make of all this.
