That magnet doesn’t just work on your phone but any device as long as you attach the plate to it first. I used it on an older tablet in my house since I never had to worry about the Shark 4 Pro overheating. The display on the Black Magic 4 Pro is, to paraphrase Zoolander, really, really, ridiculously good looking. Granted, it is curved on the back to fit nicely into the hand, but make no mistake about it, this is a chunky phone. The price of this phone in India is expected to be (₹27,599). The phone powered by Qualcomm SM8250-AC Snapdragon 870 5G Chipset with Octa-core (3.2 GHz Kryo 585) CPU and Adreno 650 GPU.
- In both cases, the times touted by the manufacturer proved to be accurate.
- With this feature, we can capture any moment as quickly as possible and share the result directly on social media to show others the interesting moments we capture.
- I don’t have any measurement tools to see this precisely, but the tones seemed a bit too cool with the Vivid mode enabled by default.
- To exit the download mode on your Xiaomi Black Shark 4 press and hold Volume Down and Power until your phone restarts.
Xiaomi is currently pushing the limits for how fast a smartphone battery firmware files 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”. We’ve reached a point in the year where you can really start finding some pretty great deals now that the “latest” processors are nearing their end of life. One great example of this is the Xiaomi Black Shark 4, which is an interesting and intriguing take on a gaming phone.
Download the firmware file from the link below and follow the recommended flashing instructions immediately after the download options. You can install the Xiaomi Black Shark 4 Qualcomm USB Driver by downloading the zip file and installing the driver on the Computer. The installation process is quite similar to the standard Windows Application.
The graphics performance is also slightly higher, and a few additional frames in games are certainly welcome. I don’t usually wind up using the touch sensors on wireless earbuds because of their typical problems with discomfort, but these felt nice on my ears. I took them on walks and comfortably used them in the studio. The buds themselves hit about 6 hours of battery life alone and 28 hours with the charging case. So even if you’re not interested in a Black Shark 4 Pro, you absolutely should look into the Black Shark Joy Buds. The ultrawide cranks up the color but with its detail lacking, produces quite a mushy photo with no real clarity when you zoom in.
It lasted almost 13 hours in our video-loop battery test, for example. In short, the Black Shark 4 Pro is a niche but excellent phone designed for mobile gamers. It starts at a relatively affordable S$790 for the 8GB/128GB version. My 12GB/256GB review set is just under S$1,000, which is still cheaper than its closest competitor, the Asus ROG Phone 5 (over S$1,200). I’m used to gaming phones having some odd touches to their software to match the maximalist approach to hardware design, but this Black Shark phone takes the cake with its built-in “Shark Chan” app. Shark Chan looks like an anime character ripped out of Genshin Impact, with a scantily clad look that leans all the way into being male-gazey. For all of the power and high-end tech that’s bundled in gaming phones, they aren’t great all-around picks for people who want great software, boundary-pushing cameras, and a more appealing device around the edges.
