Gaming phones make up a niche category, but with mobile gaming projected to grow into a multi-billion dollar business in the near future, some companies are hoping to take an early lead.

    If you are a gamer and are ready to spend 50k on a phone then this is the phone for you. Pros Unique design- although there are many gaming phones out there the black shark has one of the best designs.The LED logo and the side LEDs look beautiful on the phone. Dedicated gaming switch- The shark mode switch is really the stand out feature in this phone which could have been implemented in other gaming phones in the market. Just a flip of the switch and your RAM is freed and any incoming calls are cutoff so nothing comes between you and your game. Connectivity- The connectivity in this phone is really amazing both cellular and WIFI. The X shaped antenna keeps you connected all the time. Battery- 4000mAH is more than enough for all the gaming requirements you have. Personally I've gamed freefire and Pubg mobile for 2 hours straight and only 30% was used. If you don't game the battery comes for 24-30 hours in 4G which is really good. Display- Very crisp and beautifully designed, although the display has a little chin and a forehead the display is curved at all the 4 edges which is really great. The bezel isn't a hindrance as it is required to place your fingers while gaming. Heat Control- The liquid cooling on this phone is really amazing never felt the cellphone getting hot so far and that is a double plus for a gaming phone, coz you don't want your palms sweaty while gaming and failing to shoot in Pubg. Cons Heavy- The heaviest cellphone I used so far. During my gaming sessions I usually feel the weight after an hour or two into the game which is a bit uncomfortable. Average Camera- For this price range xiaomi should have provided a wide angle lens or at least image stabilization for the lenses provided because all the pics I take where the person is moving all turned out blurred. No waterproofing- No need for any explanation there. There are a lot of pros which I didn't mention like stock Android, dual speakers, fast charge and so on. I am just blown away by this cellphone and the Frozen Silver is a good colour on the phone.

    The Phone has been running smooth as butter. battery life is commendable. never faced over heating playing games at high graphics settings.The camera gets the job done, it's ok-ish. changing the one star rating to 5 star as I finally received the game accessories at Rs 1. PubG, call of duty, injustice 2 all runs perfect. The improved touch response helps with a high quality gaming experience. Shark space is there but I have only used it very rarely. ludicrous mode is awesome, pushes all graphics and performance settings to the limit we don't need this for the currently available games on playstore... maybe in the future this option will be good to have. apart from gaming, call quality, app usage all are perfect. this is a truly good device for the price.

    impressive phone. seller was quick and delivered on time. happy with the purchase. otas are not frequent..and the company needs to clear up few niggles. the RGB lighting is a welcome addition, customisation options are limited though.
