Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro Review

Score: 78.7 / 100

Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro is an absolutely amazing Android cellphone launched two years ago, counting with a huge 6.7 inches display, and two cameras, a 108 megapixels back facing camera and a 16 mega-pixels front-facing camera. That's all? Not at all, it's only the beginning of a much deeper review.

Xiaomi appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 7.76 ounces phone. The Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro is extremely thin, being just 0.37 inches thick. This phone is a very compact device, taking into account that it presents a 6.7" display and it is only 6.45" long and 3.01 inches wide. This cellphone is sold in two colors, black and white.

The Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro has a 256 GB big internal memory and while it doesn't include an external memory card slot, it it is more than enough to store tons of applications, games, pictures and videos without worrying about filling the phone.

This cellphone includes a great 6.7" display with a 1080 x 2400 resolution, making everything look beautiful and brightful.

This device has two cameras, a 108 MP back facing camera and a 16 mega-pixels front facing camera. Even though it's 108 megapixels may sound great the back facing camera has a very little 0.326797-inches sensor it takes less detailed pictures than it should. It also captures videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 60 fps, and slow motion videos in (Full HD) (1920x1080) up to 960 frames per second (32 times slower than regular videos).

This phone counts with wi-fi capability (which it can share with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G insanely fast data connection, 4G (LTE-A) super fast connection and also HSPA+ data connection (a lower speed 4G variation) and fast 3G connection type, supported by HSDPA technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This phone also includes plenty of interesting characteristics as Fingerprint unlock, Bluetooth (5.2 ), GPS and Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone counts with an inmense 4650 mAh Li - Polymer non-removable battery providing this phone an amazing battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery isn't replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to get older, even though with this big battery you will probably buy a new phone before that becomes an issue.

It doesn't matter whether you are looking for a device for work, are looking for a phone to majorly use social networks, are a photography fan or want a cellphone for gaming, this device is very appropiate for you.
