90% Black Shark 4 Gaming Phone Review: This Feels Like Cheating
Source: Make Use Of English
The Black Shark 4 has addressed the biggest issue with mobile gaming, giving you a more responsive screen as well customizable triggers. This is the first phone I actually enjoyed playing more competitive mobile games on. Not only that, I was actually really good at them, which I think is reason enough to get this for most people.
