You can do much worse for RM2499 if you want a gaming smartphone. The Black Shark 2 Pro may not be the perfect gaming phone for me, but it is still a cut above many other flagship smartphones when it comes to gaming. My main issues with it are the weird design choices as well as the absolutely deplorable translation work which makes the Black Shark 2 Pro seem like a rushed job.

While the Black Shark 2 Pro isn’t officially for sale in the Philippines yet, folks in the company are quickly setting up the necessary facilities for their official entry to the Philippines. Black Shark reps tell me that they’ll be offering the Black Shark 2 Pro close to the price that they’re offering the phone in Malaysia, which comes out to around Php 31K when directly converted to our currency for the 8GB/128GB variant, with the higher-spec 12GB/256GB variant going for around 37.1K when directly converted.

The recent trend for gaming handsets is great news for those who like entertainment on the go, but it’s also a boon for smartphone buyers who want incredible power at a reasonable cost. The likes of the Nubia Red Magic 3 and Black Shark 2 offer Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipsets at a fraction of the price of rival devices from Samsung and the like, and also come with cool features like Switch-style controllers, liquid cooling and super-responsive screens.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
