Xiaomi Black Shark Gaming Review - Better Than Others? (English)

Xiaomi Black Shark Gaming Review - Better Than Others? (English) Hi guys Chris here back with the BlackShark so this is Xiaomi's first gaming mobile phone so it's gaming focused youcan see we've got this add-on joypad if you haven't seen on my unboxing this isa bluetooth joypad that you can clip onto it but you have to have the case onthe phone so in this video here I'm just gonnafocus on the gaming performance so we'll see what kind of frame rates we're gonnaget if we're gonna see any slowdown and then right at the end of this video aswell check the thermals over just physically to see how hot is it gettingon the back yard notice that it does actually get a little bit warm there andthat's to be expected when you're gaming for long durations now if you alsomissed that unboxing I'll quickly to show you the antutu scores so it isreally good you can see it's massive the score that's probably one of the highestyou will see until probably the one plus six comes out so the Snapdragon 845 withthe Adreno 630 GPU and six gigabytes of RAM and 64 gigabytes of internal storagehere that's ufs 2.1 spec so a very very quick phone now the UI on it is joy UIversion one it's quite lightweight it's not as heavy as me UI it's just like askin that's on top of Android 8 so for this video to get the maximumperformance I'm gonna be using what's called shark space that's that dedicatedswitch so you switch that up you go into shark space you're gonna get nointerruptions it is also supposed to boost the gamingperformance now just give you a very quick overview on this this video isabout focusing on the gaming but all your games are listed in here normallythey are automatically added if they're not then you have to go through the menusystem here and just add those games to that so every single game you need toactually set up the controller so you go into the game pad here when you swipedown on the home bottom it brings this up so you need to remove around theon-screen controls so you can see right now here I've got this already set upand configured for pub G so tapping this that is actually gonna be my scope tozoom in that one there's this going to be the fire button and you see movingthat around that it's going to be the movement now if you don't like themovement then you could actually move that over to aiming if you wanted to aimwith the joystick then that is possible to set that up at anyway let's get intothe game play and see how it performs so I thought I'd quickly show you the starthere because often you get a bit of lag and you see that it's very smooth rightnow rendering all those different players in there that's not a problembut now and then you do see a little bit of stutter here and there and it's notrunning full 60 frames per second I don't have an FPS counter on this but Ican tell that it's just not 100% it's not 60 frames per second i know thisbecause i've been playing other games that do have framescounters on them so you can see the FPS and when they're running 60 you reallydo know is this to me as around about 40 or something like that so one thing topoint out with these controls is that you can't get the sprint block becausethe joysticks just not gonna push up further enough so there's one thing tothink about too when you're playing this game so if you want to lock the sprintthen you still have to do it with your finger there manually and the way i haveit configured so the scope is just here to look down on at least the barrel iwant to have this scope so that's easy enough to switch to that it's quitequick and then of course do fire that also means that for driving of coursethe controls aren't set up so again gonna have to just switch back to usingthe touchscreen so it might actually just be more comfortable just to go withthe touchscreen to start with so this next time i'm looking at is calledlineage revolutions and this is probably one of the most demanding games actuallythat i'll test out you sometimes see a little bit of stuttering lag so thegraphics is very demanding it's another one those ones based on the UnrealEngine so I did have to configure the controls a little bit I did have someproblems with the gamepad if you sit it right on where the joystick is with theon-screen buttons it didn't actually work too well so this is how I saved itI'll just set up the attack on one of the the triggers here on the top ofcourse I'll just show you quickly a bit of gameplay so using that trigger it'snot super comfortable as I mentioned in the unboxing and my follow-up reviewthat it's sometimes it's just easier to use the on-screen controls of coursewe've got way more buttons here I've only got two bands on this so there'snot a lot there but the performance of this game is good it's just now and thenyou see a little bit of slowdown so it's definitely not running a continual 60frames per second not at least with this demanding game this total now is calledstandoff - and it's super similar to Counter Strike himjust a ripoff of counter-strike but of course running here on Android no do youhave the trigger set up so the triggers are for firing and whoops a manage totrigger the menu don't know how I managed to do that should actually bedisabled and define the controls a little bit difficult on this one oh didalready you see with the frames counter at least this game actually has an FPScounter on it it's 59 60 frames per second the whole time no matter how manyplayers are on the server and what's been rendered in front of you it'salways a steady 60 frames per second so it's really really smooth very fast asyou can see here so this run runs perfect now one other question that didpop up is what about the built-in screen recorder now it's right here the qualityis not that great so some of the free screen recorders you will get off GooglePlay Store actually do a better job because they record audio there's nosettings for this it's either on or off it just starts recording here so you canset it up to start recording like it's on right now but the problem with it isit does not record any audio from the game or the microphones this next titleis Ashfield extreme in this one it's better without a controller really soI'm going to be using the accelerometer for the steering and everything as younormally would see it's running fine a couple of littlestutters here and there the starter here now is shadow fightthree really good looking game and let's see what it's like now with the joystick seems to be a little bit easier in factto control and pretty easy one there for me so thistotal here is called critical ops and it does also have a frame counter right uphere you can see 59 frames per second the whole time and yes it's anotherCounter Strike clone as you can see well bomb defusing planting bombs things likethat well and I'm about to die okay one kill well let's set something to so it does make the controls a loteasier I find having the joypad but it's not entirely comfortable I'm starting toget a little of a sore hand because of how small it isand this title here is hit or hero's of incredible tales quite a graphicallydemanding game it does look really good too and this is running fine you see theoccasional little stutter but I think it's more to do with the internet andthings loading in so these are the settings that I have on that's in thegame panel as well I thought to show you this so the framerate optimization thisapparently supposed to boost performance this is some sort of accelerationservice I think it's using a VPN to make things a little bit faster with yourping times a super touch that just increases the touch response there Ihaven't honestly noticed much difference at all between having it on or off itseems to the same to me now game lab this is to do with the LED lights thatare on the back of this but this seems to only work in China or with Chinesegames so I do actually have this enabled it is on the light effect this is theLEDs that will light up actually behind the logo so it will change color willturn red and it's basically RGB there is also some lights in here but I've neverseen it actually come on for any of the games that I have tested so that's why Ithink it's just Chinese only titles that it supportsso this title is World of Tanks and this one I feel is a little bit better tocontrol actually with the controller here you can see just for getting aroundwith the tanks sometimes can be a little bit awkward and I've configured thecontroller so one is just a toggle magnification to zoom right and theother of course is to fire and I find that works quite wellbut no issues with the framerate like all of the games I have tested everysingle game is running super smooth really good frame rates here this Iwould say is running at 60 frames per second without a doubt this is just sosmooth od and I'm about to probably die here okay so I haven't covered every singlegame here but that is it for this video otherwise it will be too long I hitsomething like 20 different games requested but just know that it's goingto run in every single game the Snapdragon 805 on this mobile on anymobile like the me mix 2s ok so this thing is barely getting warm it's around30 degrees there you can see just on the back and I have actually been gaming forabout an hour and a half I spend a lot of time downloading things as well andusing it and gaming so that's not bad at all it barely gets warm it's a lotcooler than the surface of the meme x2 is differently that one seems to heat upa bit where it does get a little bit warm where I have seen it hit 35 degreeswhich is still nothing is when you're charging at the same time and gaming soI have done about 6 hours of gaming now in total with this gamepad and I cansafely say that it's a little uncomfortable at times I'm finding thatI'm getting a bit of a cramp or ache in my thumb here so that is not good andreally is it worth getting it just for that controller I don't think it is justget yourself something like this one of these controllers there's so many outthere all these different models Bluetooth controllers and there are appsout there that you can map the on-screen controls using a Bluetooth controller sothe games that don't support it you can't actually get it to work andthat'll work quite well the good thing about this of course this is verysimilar the ergonomics to an Xbox 360 controller so this is really comfortableyou're not going to get any cramps with us when you can play for hours on endand yours gotta flip this up and example the mix 2s you can put that right inthere and there you go okay gaming like this is a lot more comfortable causeit's a bulky joystick it's not as small as this but it really depends on on whatyou need to heat something that's more portable okay this is alright and andusing it especially I've noticed in games like World of Tanks it does makeit a lot more easier to control your tank to drive around and things so itdoes help out thanks a lot for watching this gaming review here now I'm workingtowards the full review of the Black Shark here I also have in my position aswell the Mi 6x if you're interested in that check out my unboxing video and Iwill also be taking a look at shell mise me gaming laptop hopefully next week .
