Xiaomi Black Shark 3 Review

Score: 86.6 / 100

Xiaomi Black Shark 3 is a great quality phone released in 2020, counting with a really big 6.7-inches display, an extremely powerful Octa-Core processing unit running at 2840 MHz, a 64 megapixels back-facing camera and a 20 megapixels front facing camera. We will get a better idea about this phone's specifications when we get into more details.

While this cellphone is slim it's not even close to being one of the thinnest phones out there, with a thickness of 0.41 inches. Whereas this cellphone is only 6.64 inches long and 3.04 inches wide, it manages to pack a 6.7" screen. Xiaomi offers the Xiaomi Black Shark 3 in armor gray, lightning black and star silver. Talking about its design, the Xiaomi Black Shark 3 is mainly created with Aluminum and Aluminum . This cellphone feels a bit heavy comparing to other cellphones , weighting 7.83 ounces.

The Xiaomi Black Shark 3 is equipped with an awesome 6.7 inches display with a 1080 x 2400 resolution, giving this phone an amazing image quality.

Xiaomi decided to power this cellphone with a high performance Octa-Core CPU ticking at 2840 MHz, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SM8250 system chip with a large 8 GB RAM. This phone counts with an excellent 128 GB internal storage memory and though it doesn't count with an external memory card slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of applications and even the largest games currently available without thinking about running out of space at all.

This device features two cameras, a 64 MP back-facing camera and a 20 mega-pixels front-facing camera. Its back-facing camera lens has an aperture of 1.8 so it can capture awesome photographs even in poorly lit environments. This cellphone also shoots 3840x2160 4K videos at 60 frames per second, and slow motion videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 240 fps.

The Xiaomi Black Shark 3 packs a 4720 mAh long lasting Li - Polymer non-removable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it at all. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery isn't removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to get older, even though with so much capacity you will probably buy a new cellphone before that happens.

This device has Wi-Fi capability (which it can share with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G blazing fast connection type, 4G LTE-A high bandwidth connection type and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a slower 4G technology) and fast 3G internet connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone supports dual SIM cards so it's able to work with two different carriers or phone numbers at the same time.

This phone also includes a few interesting characteristics like Fingerprint Scanner, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

No matter if you want a social cellphone, will use it for gaming, want a work phone or you love taking pictures, you will probably love this cellphone. Xiaomi packs the Xiaomi Black Shark 3 with Protective Case, Screen Protector, USB Type-C data cable, SIM Tray Ejector, Fast Charge Power Adapter and Quick Start Guide .
