Black Shark 5 Pro review


Xiaomi's Black Shark gaming series has been around for quite some time now and has carved out a good reputation for itself. The latest addition to the...

Bright, 144Hz OLED display with HDR10+ support and now 10-bit color.

Convoluted high refresh rate handling both for games and UI.

All things considered, it shows that Black Shark engineers are trying hard. The Black Shark 5 Pro manages to incrementally improve over its predecessor in pretty much every way while also maintaining a reasonable price tag. That being said, we can't...

Black Shark 5 Pro review: better, faster, stronger, at a cost


The Black Shark 5 Pro is here to take over the helm, bringing you much-needed improvements over the Black Shark 4 Pro. Our review is here to judge whether the premium slapped on top is worth it for th You get an improved gaming phone with a nice mix of...

Unmarred performance that can handle anything ; Stunning high-end design and 144hz OLED ; Improved heating issues ; Multifunctional magnetic triggers ; Solid set of cameras for photos and videos ; 120W fast charging with brick included

Only two years of untimely updates ; Incompatible with CDMA carriers ; No IP rating, audio jack, or wireless charging ; Ads in native apps don't make sense at this price

Black Shark 5 Pro review: The gaming phone to get


The Black Shark 5 Pro impresses, even as a gaming phone. It has physical shoulder buttons, solid battery life, ultra fast 120W charging and a nice 144Hz display.

I think if you’re more focused on getting the best gaming experience and don’t care about photography, the Black Shark 5 Pro should be at the top of your list.

Black Shark 5 Pro review: sink or swim?


Can the Black Shark 5 Pro's gaming grunt swim circles around the competition?

Good power to price ratio ; Shoulder triggers are fun ; Design feels premium ; Screen looks great

Interface is heavy ; Occasional UI gremlins ; Battery could be better ; Underwhelming LED lights

Undercutting the priciest gaming phone competition, the Black Shark 5 Pro marries high-end features like a 144Hz screen and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 power with physical shoulder buttons and gaming phone styling. Adding a respectable camera to the mix, the...

Black Shark 5 Pro review: Ahead of the game


We've been testing Black Shark's fifth-generation gaming beast, and here's what we've found.

The best speakers on any smartphone ; Excellent performance ; Lovely and responsive display ; Pop-up physical trigger buttons ; Good main camera ; Superfast charging

No wireless charging ; No headphone socket or expandable storage ; Advertisements in system apps ; Battery drains quite quickly when gaming

The Black Shark 5 Pro offers a top-tier gaming experience, but it's easy to live with on daily basis, too. This is something that can't be said for a lot of gaming-focused devices, and we think it's pretty important if you're looking for a primary...
