Reviews for the Xiaomi Black Shark 4 Pro

Still The BEST PUBG Gaming Phone For The Price? Black Shark 4 Pro Global Review

83% Black Shark 4 Pro Review — Setting The Benchmark For Gaming Smartphones?
Source: Pokde English
Starting from the price of RM2,599, the Black Shark 4 Pro is a worthy offering in the gaming smartphone market. It offers several top-of-the-line specifications and it does rather well when it comes to gaming itself. There are pros and cons as you’d expect. The review unit that we had is slightly different from the one offered in Malaysia, where it comes with 12GB RAM mated to a 128GB internal storage. If anything, I wished that the battery would perform slightly better. There is the speedy 120W fast charger however to combat that and get you up and running in no time. After all is said and done, we award the Black Shark 4 Pro with our Silver Pokdeward.

Black Shark 4 Pro Display review: Comfortable gaming experience
Source: DxOMark English
The Black Shark 4 Pro is a gamer’s phone and is well-suited for that purpose, thanks to its smooth feel and accurate touch during play. However, its overall lack of readability (especially outdoors), its imperfect color accuracy, and its HDR10 playback performance make it less suitable as an all-purpose device.
