In benchmarks, the smartphone obviously Stock Firmware performed very well and shows an average framerate of 59.50 FPS in 3DMark’s Wild Life benchmark, which simulates gaming usage for one minute. Imagine that a virtual button that you never use is very badly placed on your screen. To avoid accidental presses in the middle of a game, you can make it activate only if you press it with level 7 force. Then you’ll have to really want to activate the button to do so. The camera module is in a slit position, bringing back some memories of the Galaxy S10. The case is already thick enough, so the camera module doesn’t stick out too much.
It can actually make the phone feel snappier and more enjoyable to use because of how fluid everything feels. The saving grace is that the charging experience is incomprehensibly fast, with support for Xiaomi’s 120W HyperCharge technology – and unlike many rivals, the full speed charger comes as standard in the box. It really is impressively fast too, with our tests showing a 0-90% charge in 15 minutes, and it reached 100% charge within 30 minutes. The display is also pressure-sensitive using Black Shark’s ‘Magic Press’ tech, with the aim of being able to press down onto the display to trigger specific game functions like reloading or using a melee weapon. Though it’s a niche feature that not even all gamers will use, it’s a handy option for the power users among us. That means that touch input is detected much more quickly than traditional smartphone displays, resulting in lower latency and faster response times – especially crucial when playing competitive online games.
- Xiaomi Black Shark 4 Smartphone is powered by Qualcomm SM8250-AC Snapdragon 870 5G Chipset.
- Add to all these the different modes like Magic Press and all the options for customizing the display, performance and screen sensitivity, and you have a very nice gaming experience.
- A few weeks with this phone, and its changed my perspective on mobile gaming.
- It is utterly useless and honestly, I don’t see the need to include it for any reason whatsoever.
According to reports, the Black Shark 4 will come with the Snapdragon 870 SoC. However, the Black Shark 4 Pro will use the latest flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC. Sources says that the Black Shark 4 smartphone will be the cheapest flagship with support for 120-watt fast charging. So far, this title is held by the iQOO 7, which costs 585 dollars. The first of which is that the temperature of my phone continued to creep up, the longer that I was playing. And even just sitting on an interaction screen caused the temperature to go up. The second was that in some combat situations, there were some definite frame drops.
The Firmware comes as a zip package which contains the original Firmware, Driver, and How-to Flash Manual. If you are still facing network drop on Xiaomi Black Shark 4 then make sure to leave a comment, I will guide you further.
The Black Shark 4 comes with NFC (Near Field Communication) functionality. The phone comes with three microphones, two stereo speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack which we should definitely applaud as we were expecting Xiaomi to drop it as it is with all flagship phones. We have a fingerprint sensor installed on the power button and not under the screen even though it is an AMOLED model.
