Black Shark 4 Pro review: Yet another value-packed gaming phone

Playing videos over the sounds of cooking was no problem for the Black Shark 4 Pro. Three noise-canceling microphones allowed me to talk to others in the same open space without issue. Everyone who called could hear me clearly over the stove or sink, and I never had to yell. Even sporadic gaming throughout the day drained the battery fast. It handles smaller games like Super Auto Pets well, but if you need to go a long time without a charger, I’d stay away from Fortnite.

There is a fingerprint sensor present on the Black Shark 4 Pro as well, along with a magnetic field sensor (compass), gyroscope sensor, proximity sensor and accelerometer sensor. It is a dual SIM smartphone with support for 5G, 4G LTE, USB OTG, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS too.

Most impressive, it seemed to retain the dark blacks, instead of making them bright purples like some cameras with their night modes often do. Most daytime side-by-side comparisons for stills were pretty close in fact. High contrast scenes, though, highlighted (pun intended) the weaknesses of these cameras and their processing. Switching between the 3 cameras and their modes, too, was much slower than I was used to. There was a noticeable delay before you could snap a photo and it wasn’t as seamless as iPhone’s and other implementations which allow you to tap to zoom in and out to switch between the cameras.
