Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Review

Xiaomi Black Shark 2 is one of the “best value for money” gaming phones in the market right now. Not only does it boast a great gaming performance, but it also shows off a bold, modern design. Here’s a rundown of the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 specs and features.

Pros:

  • Glass inset that helps with cooling performance
  • Bigger display
  • Produces better contrast and color accuracy
  • Quick-charging
  • 48 hours of battery life with casual use

Cons:

  • Huge and Heavy
  • Only several hours of graphics-intensive gaming

Design

The Black Shark 2 sports a black chassis with green accents. This time, it comes with a glass inset that, while highly reflective, helps with signal and cooling performance while gaming. With a dimension of 163.6 x 75 x 8.8 mm and a weight of 205g, the Black Shark 2 is huge and heavy. This is because of the chunk of metal used in the chassis. So, if you’re looking for a lightweight gaming phone, this phone may not be for you.

Display

Compared to its predecessor, the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 is equipped with a bigger OLED display which measures 6.39 inches. The pixel resolution was also slightly upgraded to 2,340 by 1,080 px. The Black Shark 2’s display looks crisp and vibrant, thanks to its OLED panel that produces better contrast than Black Shark’s display. You can expect a rich visual experience when streaming movies or gaming. It has also improved in terms of color accuracy which was lacking in the original Black Shark. Whites come out much clearer and viewing angles are better.

Camera

In the camera department, the Black Shark 2 is on par with competing devices. Its 48MP f/1.8 and 12MP f/2.2 cameras let you capture normal and telephoto images. You may also use the two lenses together for portrait shots with a bokeh effect. Camera modes for the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 include photo, video, slow motion, video, panorama, portrait, square, and pro (manual). Speaking of which, the Pro (manual) mode allows you to adjust the focus, ISO, shutter speed, and white balance.

Overall, the Black Shark 2 produces good photo quality and is slightly better than most gaming phones in the market.

Performance

The Black Shark 2 is equipped with a Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855 which is a top-of-the-line chipset in 2019. It is also packed with a generous 6GB of RAM. These top-notch specifications allow the Black Shark 2 to conquer every game, every app, and every task set before it. In terms of gaming, it can render smooth 3D landscapes while delivering impressive gameplay. You can expect games like PUBG and Fortnite to run well on the Black Shark 2, like other flagship gaming phones including Asus ROG and Samsung Galaxy S10.

Battery Life

Besides having a powerful chipset, the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 comes with a large battery capacity of 4,000mAh that allows the device to breeze through 48 hours with mixed, casual use, and still have some power to spare. That said, when playing graphics-intensive games like Asphalt or Fortnite, it’s taking a noticeable toll on the battery. You can use it for graphics-intensive gaming for at least several hours. As for charging performance, the Black Shark 2 supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 (27W). It charges rapidly that you’ll get 60 battery charge level in just thirty minutes after it’s plugged in.

Verdict

Black Shark 2 is a great gaming phone, as it can deliver impressive performance in key metrics like processor and battery life. One thing that might set you back from purchasing is its huge and heavy chassis. Overall, it’s a good bargain for gamers who need a great flagship gaming phone.
