    Description

    Whats new in Xiaomi Black Shark?

    The Xiaomi Black Shark gaming phone offers a water-cooling system, a metal case in an industrial design, and an optional gamepad.

    In a time where everyone already has a smartphone, manufacturers have to come up with new ideas to appeal to new target audiences. So manufacturers fall back to a group of customers that is usually willing to spend larger amounts of money for a good “rig” while also appreciating unusual design concepts: gamers. We already reviewed the Razer Phone 2017 – the Xiaomi Black Shark was at least as highly anticipated as the Razer Phone, if not more, and now it has freshly arrived in our test lab.

    Several optimizations are meant to turn the Black Shark into any gamer’s dream: First, a special menu with a button that enables the user to open installed games extremely fast. Then, the phone also comes with a gamepad as an optional accessory, and with a water-cooled Snapdragon 845 for an exceptionally high performance.

    However, Xiaomi’s gaming phone has a drawback: In contrast to Xiaomi’s other smartphones, this one is not officially available in Europe yet.

     In addition, users have to deal with menus that are only partly translated into English, the lack of LTE band 20, a limited Android without Google services, and a Chinese power supply. To compensate for the latter, an EU adapter is included by some retailers. These drawbacks are balanced out by a relatively low price: Depending on the chosen hardware options, prices start as low as 419 Euros (~$487), which is extremely low for a high-end smartphone.

    Other than the aforementioned Razer Phone 2017, we also compare our test device to current high-end smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S9+, the OnePlus 6, and the Honor 10.
