Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro Review

Score: 82.9 / 100

Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro is a top-notch device launched in October 2019, provisioned with a very fast Octa-Core processor speeding at 2960 MHz, a large 6.4 inches screen, and two cameras, a 48 mega-pixels back camera and a 20 MP front-facing camera.

Xiaomi decided to equip the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SM8150-AC system chip, holding an extremely powerful Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2.96 gigahertz with a big 8 GB of RAM memory. A great advantage of this device is its 128 GB inmense internal storage memory and though it doesn't include an SD memory slot, it it is more than enough to install tons of apps, games, pictures and videos without thinking about how much storage is left.

The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro is a very compact phone, taking into account that it packs a 6.4" display and it has just 6.44" long. Being just 0.35" thick,the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro is slim and comfortable. It appears that Xiaomi forgot about optimizing the weight in this 7.23 ounces phone. This phone is offerred in two color options, iceberg grey and shadow black.

This phone is equipped with a spectacular 1080 x 2340 6.4 inches screen, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels in the screen.

This device has wifi connection (which can be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE-A , a really fast connection type and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a bit slower 4G network) and the fastest 3G data connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro uses two Nano SIM cards so it is able to use two different phone numbers and even different carriers at the same time.

The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro has two cameras, a 48 MP back-facing camera and a 20 megapixels front facing camera. this phone's back-facing camera lens has an aperture of 1.8 so it can take sharp photos even in low light environments. It is capable of filming videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 60 fps, and slow motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 480 fps.

This device has an amazing 4000 mAh Li - Ion non-removable battery, enough to provide this phone with an extremely long battery life. An issue to take into account is that this device's battery isn't removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to get older, although with such a huge battery size you will probably discard this cellphone before it happens.

This cellphone also comes with a handful of interesting characteristics like Biometric fingerprint, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

It doesn't matter whether you want this phone mostly for social networks and internet browsing, want a work phone, will use it as a gaming phone or you love taking photographs, you will definitely be very satisfied with this phone. Xiaomi also sells this device with Protective case, Screen protector, Left-side Gamepad with stand , SIM tray ejector, Fast charge power adapter, Quick Start guide, Type-C to 3.5mm adapter and USB Type-C Cable.
