Black Shark 2 Review: The new king of mobile gaming?

 

The Black Shark 2 is a promising gaming smartphone, featuring exciting technology such as pressure-sensitive controls and a class-leading cooling system

Master Touch and optional controllers make mobile games more user-friendly ; Incredibly affordable considering specs and features ; Most powerful Android smartphone we've tested ; Long-lasting, fast-charging battery

Screen limited to 60Hz and Full HD ; Lack of headphone jack

The Black Shark 2 is the ultimate gaming smartphone. Loaded with fancy features and offering super-powered performance, even non-gamers will get great value for money at this low price.

Black Shark 2 review

 

It's Black Shark's second strike - and this time around its gaming phone is a real killer

Excellent value ; Loud speakers ; Decent battery life

No NFC or 3.5mm jack ; Occasional touchscreen issues ; No waterproofing

Angry looks, a killer screen, aggressive pricing and plenty of bite make the Black Shark 2 an excellent gaming phone despite a few chinks in its armour

Black Shark 2 initial review: Not just a gaming great, a fantastic flagship too

 

The second-generation Black Shark is a gaming phone at its best: great looks, ultimate power and versatility from accessories see it lead the way.

Incredible value for money ; GamePad controller setup (sold separately) makes for superb gaming potential ; Low latency OLED offers pressure sensitivity and looks great ; A design that's appealing to gamers and non-gamers alike ; Heaps of power on tap...

No 2K screen resolution ; No 90Hz/120Hz panel ; Controllers not included in the box ; Cameras not to top-tier rivals ; No 3.5mm jack

This gaming phone impresses on many levels: not only is it a super-powerful device for gaming, with great optional controller integration (sold separately) and a hyper responsive screen, its design is well considered as a flagship alternative for...

Black Shark 2 review

 

This shark has bite

Affordable Snapdragon 855 phone ; Plenty of storage options ; Punchy AMOLED screen

No NFC ; No IP rating ; Touch input issues

Combining a great camera, excellent internals and improved gaming credentials over the original, the Black Shark 2 is a triple threat that betters most of its gaming phone rivals. It’s lumbered with a handful of instabilities and quirks, but even with...

Hands on: Black Shark 2 hands on review

 

Is the specialist phone necessary for mobile gamers?

Gaming mode ; Great camera ; Not too big

No headphone jack ; Specs only useful to pro gamers ; Design isn't the slickest

The Black Shark 2 isn't as unwieldy as some competitors, and has some interesting extra features like an impressive camera, but the lack of a headphone jack is a particularly blow for a gaming phone, and there's not a lot else besides its gaming prowess.

Black Shark 2 Review: The Gaming Phone You Really Want

 

If you live somewhere you can buy one, the Black Shark 2 is a solid choice for a powerful smartphone on the cheap, whether you're a gamer or not. Regardless of your thoughts on the design, the build quality inspires confidence, and the Black Shark 2's...

Incredible battery life ; Stunning performance ; Lots of gaming options ; Sleek design ; Low price

Not available in U.S. ; Dim display ; Odd software quirks

The Black Shark 2 offers unbeatable performance and battery life at a stellar price. However, depending on where you live, you may not have the opportunity to buy this phone — in which case, we'd recommend the OnePlus 6T instead.

Xiaomi launches Black Shark 2 — its second gaming smartphone

 

Xiaomi subsidiary Black Shark launched its this spring. Less than half a year later we have the follow-up.

One key difference between the Black Shark 2 and the other options? It’s not likely to be widely available in the United States.

Black Shark 2 Review - Insane Power For Less Than £500

 

The concept of a gaming phone isn't anything new; back in the era of dumbphones, we had the Nokia N-Gage, and more recently we've seen the Sony Xperia Play, Razer Phone 2 and the Asus ROG Phone all try to turn our handsets into portable games consoles.

Amazing power, Responsive screen, Great for gaming, Brilliant battery life

No wireless charging, No water resistance, No 3.5mm headphone jack

While the Black Shark 2 is aimed at gamers, it's also one of the most powerful Android phones money can buy - and at less than £500, it's a complete steal.
