More than ever, we rely on these mobile gadgets to capture and relive our best moments, so having a reliable camera system is a must. The Black Shark 4 Pro fields a triple camera setup at the rear, with a 64MP main camera, 8MP ultra-wide, and a 5MP macro. For a majority of your photo and video endeavors, the 64MP main will be your weapon of choice. Clearly, the Black Shark 4 Pro satisfies the pillars of a gaming phone, striking a rich balance of display performance, speed, and power. But, for a 2022 release, I wish that Black Shark went with the more updated and efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor instead of last year’s 888.
Xiaomi is currently pushing the limits for how fast a smartphone battery can charge, and this innovation has made its way to its gaming phone. The Black Shark 4 is capable of charging at speeds up to 120W, with Xiaomi claiming you can go from 0-100% in “under 17 minutes”.
- When paired to your phone’s Bluetooth, it can even be programmed to change colors based on the game you’re playing.
- But if you charge your Xiaomi Black Shark 4 Pro under direct sunlight or in a scorching environment, your phone can no longer control the temperature and will probably stop charging and even go ahead and turn off.
- After using the Asus ROG Phone 6 for a limited time, I can confidently say that it is a fantastic device for gamers and mobile power users.
- Check out the Black Shark website (opens in new tab) for accessories, including a cooling fan, earphones, and more gaming triggers.
Because, after the reboot, the phone starts optimizing the apps in the background, which requires more processing power than when idle. Well, there is nothing wrong with your phone; when you turn on your phone’s Hotspot, your phone has to connect with the cellular network and use WiFi to act as a hotspot. Unfortunately, this puts too much work on the battery and starts to heat stock firmware file up.
Though the Black Shark 4 Pro does improve on its camera offering compared to its predecessor, it’s still not what most would consider flagship. If you’re cautious about overheating problems, especially with gaming phones, Black Shark sells a magnetic cooling fan that can snap onto the 4 Pro to keep its internals ventilated.
