Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Review

Score: 82.3 / 100

Xiaomi Black Shark 2 is an absolutely great phone released many years ago, counting with a very fast 2.84 gigahertz Octa-Core processing unit, a really big 6.4-inches screen, and two cameras, a 48 megapixels back camera and a 20 mega-pixels front facing camera.

This phone ships with an exceptional Octa-Core CPU ticking at 2.84 GHz, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 system chip with a great 8 GB of RAM. The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 has a large 128 GB internal storage memory and even though it doesn't count with an SD card slot, it is still enough to store tons of applications, games, photos and videos without thinking about running out of space at all.

This cellphone isn't very light for a phone this size, with a weight of 7.23 oz. This device only has 6.44" long and 2.95 inches wide, but it manages to hold a 6.4 inches display. This cellphone is just 0.35" thick, making its way into the thinnest phones podium. Xiaomi sells this cellphone in two different colors, black and silver.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 48 megapixels back facing camera and a 20 mega-pixels front side camera. this phone's back facing camera has an aperture of f/1.8 so it can shoot detailed photos even in poorly lit environments. It can also capture videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 fps, and slow motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 120 fps (4 times slower than normal videos).

Xiaomi packed the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 with a great 6.4 inches display, and a resolution of 1080 x 2340 , which makes it impossible to even see the pixels taking part of the display.

This cellphone comes with a 4000 mAh amazing Li - Ion non-removable battery providing the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 an amazing battery duration. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it starts to live shorter, while with such a huge battery size you will probably buy a new cellphone before that becomes an issue.

This phone offers wi-fi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices around, acting as a modem or router), LTE-A 4G high bandwidth connection type and also HSPA+ data connection (a slower 4G network) and 3G fast internet connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 has dual sim so it can to use 2 different phone lines.

The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 also includes a few useful features such as Biometric fingerprint, Bluetooth (allows communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories) and GPS Geolocation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.
