Xiaomi Black Shark 3 Singapore Reviews
The Black Shark 3 leans very very very heavily on the gaming aesthetic hence the design and weight is not something that is designed for the general public. It has a huge 6.67-inch AMOLED display that supports 90Hz screen refresh rates ( albeit we expected to see at least a 120Hz screen refresh but we have to keep in mind that there are not many games that supports up to 120Hz refresh rates anyways ). The Black Shark 3 is also a heavy device, it weighs up to 222g which makes it one of the heaviest device in the market in 2020. Albeit, we will see an even thicker and heavier device when the Black Shark 3 Pro variant is dropped. Hence, without a doubt, the device is not pocket friendly but from a gamer’s perspective however, it ticks many boxes. It has a good punchy color, fast screen refresh, powerful chipset and dedicated gaming modes, a 30W fast charging capability with a 4720mAh battery capacity, and lots of extra peripherals you can get to further improve your gaming sessions.
The phone uses a Snapdragon 865 chipset which is plenty powerful and is 5G ready. Although, 5G technology is still premature for any effective 5G gaming testing, but it is good to have a device that is future proof. The Black Shark 3 comes in two options that is you can get the 8GB RAM ones or the 12GB RAM ones. The phone comes in two color variants: Black and Gray but do keep in mind that the Gray ones only exist for the 8GB RAM option. If you want to get specced up, you are stuck with only the Black color variant.
The battery on the Black Shark 3 is a 4720mAh power pack. You will also get a 30W fast charging capability and a gimmicky magnetic charger which only provides an 18W charge. The magnetic charger is connected through the back of the phone which will allow you to enjoy gaming without disturbance. The magnetic charger is able to charge up from 0% to 25% in under an hour which is quite slow by today’s standard. Also, there is no wireless charging.
The camera is quite a surprise for a gaming phone. It is nowhere near other high-end mobile phones camera but it is not far behind either. Looking at the phone as a gaming phone, the images it produced is sharp, with an impressive depth of field, and colors are ok. On the rear, you will find a triangular-shaped camera setup which consists of a 64MP main shooter, a 13MP ultrawide cam, and a 5MP depth sensor. On the front, the selfie camera is located at the slender bezel on top of the screen which is similar to all previous Black Shark predecessors. The selfie camera is a 20MP single shooter.
