Black Shark 5 Gaming Phone review: a great gaming option saving money
If you like, watching our review about gaming phones, i think you might be impressed by the brand black shark and its also one of the most impressive brands on our recommended list. Recently, the brand launched the global version of their latest gaming phone, the black shark 5., compared to those flagship gaming phone, the black shark 5, is more likely a budget gaming model that carries fair performance with acceptable, high end power solution and cooling system. It looks like it wants to continue the success of its predecessor, the black shark, 4.. Okay, no more words lets start the review and check out whether its as well performed as blackjack 4. continuing the design thinking that began with its predecessor, the black shark 5, looks more mainstream in appearance. Apart from the remaining camera module with futuristic design the edge curve, the back panel might make it look one of those new flagship models, but even though it still looks more interesting than most new flagships again, the black shark 5 still applies a similar structure to the Blackjar 4 series: it comes with a metal frame and a glass back cover, but i have to say that the new mac style pattern on the rear looks much better. Along with the camera module theres a rgb led flash asserting its dignity as a game info. The camera bump is acceptable and even fit the design well, but at the same time, please note that, like the other gaming phones, the black shark 5 is a bit bulkier than most regular phones.
But when holding it in hand, its great build quality might make. You ignore its compromise on weight. Thankfully, the black shark 5 retains the brains iconic pop up shoulder buttons, which is my favorite design of the series. The physical feedback on the fingers makes its closest phone to a handheld gaming console every time i toggle the magnetic switch back and forth. In addition to the mechanical trigger sounds. The phone would also simulate the sound of a gun loading. In addition to gaming, both the triggers and switches can be separately customized into shortcut for opening, apps or triggering functions. For example, i pretty enjoy using one of it as the camera shutter button and, if youre still not satisfied with just two shoulder buttons for gaming. The black shark 5 also reserves the magic press operation, including two pressure, sensitive areas of gaming operation, which allow you to map two virtual buttons by pressing the screen and the magic press also works for shortcut use outside the game. Space which now has included 15 shortcuts. For customization, but some of them, like scamming, alipay, wechat and health code, is only widely used in china. Anyway, we have to say that the thoughtful features of the magic press and the shoulder triggers actually make it even more convenient for daily use than regular models. Well, speaking of the display, actually, we dont see much upgrade on the black shark 5. However, the display is still one of the best among all the gaming phones.
The 6.67 inch amoled display features up to 144hz refresh rate with hdr 10 plus support and around 1 300 nits peak brightness, even compared with other regular phones at the similar pricing. The display is still at a top notch level. The upgraded dual speaker system is the biggest surprise of black jar 5., its even able to hit the top 3 among all the phones we reviewed so Music, Music Applause, Music Applause, the black shark fire doesnt get upgraded with its processor, its still powered by the snapdragon 870 chipset actually, as a highly cost effective model. It seems that the a70 chipset is still the best option in the market. Just blame it on qualcomm. Indeed, weve learned much about how well performed the 870 chipset is over power, efficiency and heating, so about its performance and gaming. You can just check out the results here so from the result, its quite clear that the black shark 5 is still good enough to do its job as a gaming phone, especially the phones, heating management and the power. Consumption is still impressive and if youre looking for a gaming model that runs games stably without serious heating issue and high power drain, the blackjar 5 could be a good option and save you a lot of money. Although the black shark 5 is a gaming phone, it still has a small upgrade in terms of camera system. The main camera has been upgraded from a 48 megapixel to 64 megapixel, even though theres still a gap.
If you compare this imaging capacity with those camera phones, but its still good to learn that the series got improved beyond the gaming related features anyway, lets look at some samples shot on the black shark 5.. The samples have relatively natural color reproduction and better image detail with the 64 megapixel sensor and the white balance performance is also more stable. On the other hand, the 13 megapixel wide angle camera is also not bad. Although the 30 megapixel resolution is not as good as a main lens, 64 megapixel, which still could have rich detail and consistent colors with the main lens and the last camera is a macro one, which is nothing different from the ones we reviewed before. It can shoot. Close enough, but dont expect too much from the image. The main camera also has improved dynamic range in low light conditions, which looks much better than what we saw on the black shark 4.. As for power solution, the black shark 5 has not shrunk compared to the pro version. It also comes with a 4 650 million per hour battery with a 120 watt wire to fast charge. It only took us 16 minutes to finish the charging test, which is also one of the fastest charging solution in the market. Right now, and its battery also looks good in our battery test, even though it features a 144hz display. The battery life didnt get much affected. So thats all for the black shark 5.
This phone has made a field that is no longer just designed for gamers, but more like a highly cost effective model for wider general users. Given that most android gamers do not really require high performance, we still consider black shark 5 is one of the best options for mobile gamers in the first half of 2022. So if you have any questions about the phone, just leave it down below the video.
