Last March, the Black Shark 4 was revealed to the world. Keys dedicated to gaming, 144 Hz panel, high battery life, there is no shortage of assets on this high-end phone. Even at the price level since it benefits from an immediate reduction at AliExpress.
If he is capable of great versatility, le Black Shark 4 does not hide its desire to seduce mobile gamers. It must be said that the latest addition to the range spares neither its technical sheet nor its hidden assets to position itself as one of the best gaming smartphones on the market.
The Black Shark 4 now also has an additional advantage in the form of a discount coupon of 25 euros at AliExpress. Indeed, usually offered at a price of 406 euros, the Black Shark 4 falls now at 381 euros.
Halfway between a premium smartphone and a portable console
At first glance, we see that the Black Shark 4 does not really look like a gaming smartphone. It thus relies on a sober aesthetic that is usually found on high-end phones, with a screen with thin borders and a punch for the selfie camera.
Yet the devil is hidden in the details and those of the Black Shark 4 are devilish. Thus, on its left edge slide two small pushers, which when engaged, release two magnetic triggers. Ideally placed, they allow you to play pleasantly in landscape mode and thus rediscover the sensations of a portable console. Especially since it is possible to configure these two triggers as desired thanks to the KeyMap application, available in the onboard Game Studio HUB.
The screen has also been designed from start to finish to satisfy mobile gamers. The Black Shark 4 is based on a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel with FHD + definition (1,920 x 1,080 pixels in 16: 9 format). Not content with offering excellent calibration, this screen benefits from a refresh rate of 144 Hz and above all a sampling frequency of 720 Hz, one of the highest on the current market. This allows the Black Shark 4 to have a tiny response time, around 8.3 ms. Suffice to say that the gaming sessions are unparalleled fluidity.
A technical sheet that does not skimp on performance
Of course, a phone dedicated to video games would be nothing without a configuration capable of keeping up with the pace. On this side, the Black Shark 4 does not do things by halves since it embeds a Snapdragon 870 chip, coupled with 6 GB of RAM in LPDDR5 and 128 GB of storage in UFS 3.1.
Whether you use the Black Shark 4 to browse the internet, take pictures or play long hours, you won’t suffer from any slowdowns. And this even if you have fun on the most demanding 3D games. Better still, this chip offers 5G and Wi-Fi 6 compatibility to the Black Shark 4 in order to take advantage of an incredible connection speed.
From 0 to 100 in 15 minutes
To say the Black Shark 4 is a range monster is an understatement. Indeed, this gaming smartphone may be based on a classic 4,500 mAh battery, but the latter is compatible with 120 W fast charging.
Such power allows the Black Shark 4 to recover 100% of its charge in just 15 minutes. This allows you to continue gaming sessions without having to wait long hours to recharge your phone.
A gaming smartphone for less than 400 euros
The ultimate strength of the Black Shark 4 is undeniably its price. Despite a muscular technical sheet, it does not break through the ceiling and remains under the bar of 400 euros. Even more so when he benefits from a discount coupon from AliExpress.
Thus, the Black Shark 4, in its 8 + 128 GB version, displays a price of 381 euros instead of 406 euros at AliExpress. Delivery is made both from China and from Europe, and in particular France.
