Xiaomi’s latest gaming phone, the Black Shark 2 Pro, didn’t score enough points for a win. The results from last week’s poll show that people are not impressed by the upgrades over the regular Black Shark 2.
They sounded pretty good on paper – this is one of the more affordable gaming phones and yet it’s among the first handsets to sport the faster UFS 3.0 storage, in addition to the Snapdragon 855+ chipset (which boosts GPU performance).
While not related to gaming, the Pro camera also got upgraded too – it gained 60fps mode when recording in 2160p resolution, also 1,920fps slow motion video. But reading through the comments, no one mentioned the camera. Instead, many wished for a display with higher refresh rate.
We guess Black Shark 2 Pro is not the kind of phone you buy for the camera. And as far as gaming performance goes, it looks like the Black Shark 2 was enough.
