The World’s Most Powerful Smartphone…

by birtanpublished on August 29, 2020

Holy moly would you look at that it's a lot of things on the table today it is a very comprehensive device this is probably the biggest smartphone I featured possibly ever it's I in the old days they would have just called it a tablet the smartphone inside this box

Has a seven point one inch display it Dwarfs even the Galaxy S 20 ultra it's a monster with a focus on gaming and that explains all of these extra components around the box that actually go with it it is the black shark 3 Pro there's a

Non pro version for those that don't want to go all the way to the extreme which is what this one does it has fancy cooling it can be overclocked it has a 270 Hertz touch input it's the entire focus is on the

Ultimate gaming experience it has shoulder buttons that pop up from the frame and then go away when you're not in game mode huh of course it has RGB lighting has this accessory over here which gives you tactile controls if you

Want them it has this giant cooling component which actually functions as an enormous air conditioner for your device that actually works and for some reason they gave me two of them one in the retail box am I gonna throw two coolers

On a smart phone yeah maybe I will maybe I will for that little advantage cuz I need it and I deserve it it has a 65 watt charger 65 watts for a smart phone crazy let's do the phone first and we'll get the accessories it's obviously a

Massive video so kick back and relax why don't just I don't know if it's the final retail box because the device isn't officially out yet but that's what you're looking at for now you see the 5g on the front because it does support 5g

It has the top-tier snapdragon as you would want in a device like this it's a snapdragon 865 5g ok very cool black shark little bit of paperwork 10 cent games we have a sim tool they've included a case this is about a standard

As you get – of course the fact that you these cutouts cuz you got to show off the geometry so people know you're gaming oh and then of course the shoulder button still need a spot to pop out so that cutout is gonna be important

You have that on the first party case included in a box this looks like an esports inspired sticker smartphone gaming is blowing up even in the competitive sense if you're talking places like China it's crazy

Blow me away so anyways they got the stickers in there to go with it this is the phone holy moly alright just take it all in look at this enormous beast let's just do a quick size comparison before we

Continue look at that puny little s 20 ultra this thing Dwarfs it in every way height width what can I say it's it's it's tremendous but hey that's the idea it's like a gaming PC in your pocket well it's definitely not a gaming PC but

You see what I see or one of these people you get the big gaming setup at home now it's time to think about it on the mobile as well that's the idea that's who they're focused on you know and of course in those markets as well

Where people just don't even think about owning a game console or have a game console there's places there's people that just want everything portable and that makes sense too so that's another target for this okay just let me put

That down for a quick second here also in the package PO here some specs 7.1 inch 2k + AMOLED display 90 Hertz but it has that even faster touch input 5,000 milliamp hour battery 65 watt fast

Charge is because the device actually has two batteries in it that's how they're able to achieve that charge of both rapidly this is the North American charge brick for some reason they gave me the European one as well maybe just

Because they have both and identified right on there just so you don't forget it 65 watts right on the brick that's tremendous power you guys know I'm always talking about charge bricks it's

Too much now we've heard it already Luke relax but I like a 65 watt braking means I don't have to just charge my smart phone it can also I get charged a laptop anything 65 watts ladies and gentlemen also in the package we have a type C

Cable obviously now how about this this is the this is one of the two coolers that they've included in case you don't know many smartphones will toggle back the performance when they start to get

Really hot because they can't dissipate that heat this phone is designed internally and of course externally to allow for greater heat dissipation and also presumably some degree of overclocking by clipping this thing on

Which also happens to be powered by the way it has a USB type-c connector right there and then clipping it on to here and having it sit overtop of the internal components of the smartphone this is gonna pull heat and blow it out

The back and dissipate and then also at the same time exchange that heat for cold and this pad is going to cool down this section of the phone what does this mean for you what means you can have longer gaming

Sessions let the phone heat up and still get the same performance and in certain games this phone will actually be able to deliver the high settings for those games along with 90 fps so you may actually be capable of taking

Advantage of that extra cooling so they both have mechanical on/off switches but they will need to be plugged into the USB cable to be operational so you're gonna need to be in a fairly static position in order to power this up you

Could power it off of a portable power bank but I think this is more of an at home kind of environment situation and this is spring-loaded to fit on the phone and you need that spring-loaded miss to get around the jeonyul phone and

Then this thing is also in there because my goodness I mean it's just it's a whole accessory setup now this one's a bit weird on this device because this device does have these pop-up triggers which again I'll show you in a moment

When I power the phone up these actually extend out of the unit when you go into game mode and they're tactile it's not just a capacitive button like the other gaming phones I've looked at if you didn't check out that recent video on

The red magic the new red magic phone go check that out because it has a capacitive version of these buttons which is helpful in game certainly but having something tactile might be even better particularly on something as big

As this phone we'll find out now Black Shark in the past has also created these analog controls you have the shoulder buttons pop out then what about your joystick do you want an analog joystick and some

Dedicated buttons they'll sell you this as well to give you kind of a Nintendo switch like experience on your smartphone with a 7.1 inch display now there's two pieces to this particular component the first one it has your

Analog joystick what else does it have on it has a couple of shoulder buttons ldlt it has a power switch on the bottom and it's very own type-c connector that looks to be right to me so that piece

Slides on that's pretty cool so it's like a ratcheting system and then a release switch in this situation you would still use your top right you would now skip your left side shoulder button and instead you would be utilizing lb LT

So you get an extra button there from what you have on this side I mean your whole rig if you get this thing all kitted up you could have that on the one side both on let's just let's just do the monster rig real quick this I don't

Think this is officially supported by the way we're just doing this for the purpose of well for a couple of laughs that's all there you go that's your smartphone in 2020 look at this beast if that doesn't remind you of a gaming PC I

Don't know what well that's the most extreme looking smartphone package or anything related to a smart phone I've ever seen in my life Wow looking at the back of the device you can see this little four pin section

Some accessories I guess eventually not really any of these but eventually some accessories will be able to interface with that 5g logo right there this section in the middle is going to light up capable of RGB lighting I like the

Fact that the camera portion up here with the triple camera setup is not popping out of the body too much like the whole thing has some nice symmetry to it yes there is still a headphone jack and this is important on gaming

Devices because you want that low latency audio with it with a nice amp on so you can use a wired headset over on this side of the device is where you'll find your volume rocker as well as your SIM card tray the other side is a bit

More interesting it's got a dedicated switch to launch into a game mode and it also of course has those shoulder buttons that are recessed the power switch is up here now this is an enormous phone just holding it like this

It that's a weapon right there I just switched from the s20 ultra to the latest one +8 Pro which was a slight improvement in portability this thing is completely in the other direction this one says I don't care what you talk

About portability trying to game over here Mac's full frame rate I want to juice everything out of that snapdragon 865 5g then you get this fuck right there alright you don't care if the coolers in it once you're carrying these

Things around you tell them you care about a slim phone I doubt it part of the reason that this phone is so big is also because has these stereo speakers facing at you when it comes to gaming all of a sudden I feel like you have a

Real proposition for why phone should be huge you've got to deal with cooling you've gotta do sound you've got to deal with battery life like these are all of a sudden now you're saying to yourself alright this is a proposition I'm

Willing to hear and I should also mention that for some reason by default it was only in 60 Hertz straight out the gate you jump into settings you want to go to display and make sure that you are in 290 Hertz and you flick the little

Switch on the side and all sudden you go into this shark space now I've got a few different games installed there's of course Call of Duty mobile you have pub G mobile bullet force because it's one of those titles it's a it's a

First-person shooter but it's one of those titles capable of going up beyond 60 fps I do expect that to change as these types of phones become more popular and people are starting to ask for those higher frame rates and have

The refresh on the device that's actually capable of taking advantage there is tremendous configuration on a per game basis I can clock up the performance on a particular title I can modify my display setting

Touch sensitivity controls the ability to turn off edge anti miss touch or turn on anti miss touched your palm taps an onscreen control I mean it's a lot of features in here that are specific to gaming and are things you

Didn't realize we're annoying until you've messed with the feature and then you realize it straight away priority stuff for background traffic which you can limit you can limit your external notifications on a per game basis there

Are device settings for the accessories whether it's this particular controller a keyboard style controller the cooler or your gaming headset that you have associated with that particular these are things that you can adjust

System-wide through the shark arsenal as they're calling it or you can adjust it on a per game basis this is quite different than some of the other implementations that you've seen out there whether it's through some sort of

Accessory or through a capacitive button which doesn't give you that same tactile feedback as a trigger gives you I mean it's a totally I'm telling you it's a totally different experience so the other cool thing about these triggers is

Not only do they jump up in the motorized fashion when you actually go to play a game they also detect if the phone is gonna drop and retract for that purpose as well if you're gonna drop the phone's I don't know let's test that

Real quick here we go yeah look their gun master trigger alert the cell phone is dropped and the master trigger is automatically retreated let's go ahead and play a match I'll show you how this is mapped out for this particular game

This whole deal goes in your pocket you have a massive display you have a big battery of course you have tremendous performance with the cooling and the Snapdragon 865 now you have the tactile feedback the ability to multitask in the

Game in a way you couldn't previously because your thumbs are more available to you now that you're utilizing your index fingers the sound is detailed and loud and facing you and it almost makes up for the fact that you have these big

Bezels on the side they needed some space for those those large front-facing speakers but at least they did it in a symmetrical way so it's symmetrical top and bottom and it's also symmetrical bezels on each

Side with these games so many of the on-screen controls get jammed up on smaller displays and so that brings me back to what I said earlier about the idea like why how do you justify a 7.1 inch display on a smart phone well did

That's one of the reasons if your deal is primarily gaming oh we're gonna have a fight right away look at this okay fine somebody are they gonna get a gun first I'm gonna run this way surely someone is gonna come looking for me

Here has this been looted already still not what I'm looking for there we go now I'll show you how it works we can look down the sights like this and I mean like look at this experience right now now one thing I'll

Mention it's different than say a console controller because you tap to look down the sights and you tap to remove the down the sights look boom you guys see what I'm saying now it just makes more sense in your brain and the

Experience because of it it just becomes a totally better thing there's so many touchscreen controls and your thumbs can only do so much and obviously we learned a lot with control just over the years the shoulder buttons triggers are super

Useful and this is just one title this is pub G all the FPS games benefit from it I mean so many different genres benefit from it I'm starting to see the light as far as gaming smartphones are concerned I'm kind of starting to see

The light here we could Ratchet it up look at this ludicrous mode unleash the potential of the soc push it to the limit boosting our performs we don't care about battery life not right now if the thing starts heating up like crazy

You've got the cooler potential this game with the gunshots and stuff I'm telling you plus to the device it rumbles as well and this is a thing that you would do one time down the sights and fire and just like that down the

Sights and fire now this game is capable of a higher framerate there we go you can see like this kind of movement right here having the shoulder buttons let's your thumbs focus

On the important part I want to show you the controller as well obviously you got to make sure that the shoulder button is down you put this on these are gonna replace your shoulder button just like this I mean this is a different level

Now now I do still have the problem of the Sprint thing where you have to reach over here to sprint but while you're playing now that at that point once I have this thumb stick I really start to feel like it's an advantage because it's

Just that fine-tuning fine movement I mean you get the idea there's many different ways to use it there trying to figure out they're trying to land on sort of the ultimate scenario for how to interact with mobile games and each

Mobile game is different so it's requiring these kind of sophisticated approaches from the smartphone makers to give you different control schemes letting you map out your hardware to your particular title you're you're

Playing and it is a bit of a headache certainly when you install a game that said once you have a configuration in there and saved it's just a matter of booting up the game from within your shark space start playing with the

Shoulder buttons say hey that feels great and then maybe upgrade to the accessory after the fact I just look I don't know I think it's kind of cool as we know there's such a wide variety of homogeneous devices that did aren't

Taking aren't trying to be a different thing I like the fact that there are these options out there for people who might want something different if somebody is doing something different plus it's not crazy ridiculous expensive

It's probably gonna be around 700 bucks so again if gaming is a thing that you do in a big way on your smartphone or if it's something you want to do in the future or you're interested in it's hard I don't think there's a better

Experience than this particular phone right now far as an all-in-one package when you're watching a video it's a zero distraction no notch no cutout experience and this is becoming harder to find obviously in

2020 and you have these enormous speakers facing your ears and when I talk about the speakers it's not just the volume it's like a detail thing and so much of it just has to do with the implementation we got used to listening

To down firing speakers because manufacturers had to go after these aggressive screen to body ratios and detail just inherently suffers when the sound is firing a different direction than your ears start to say to yourself

Hey that's starting to look like a valid substitution for some of the more traditional gaming experiences it's getting closer and it's because of devices like this black shark and the red magic device just when you think

Every smartphone you look at is gonna be the same thing over again you get something like this changes your mind that's kind of cool black shark three probe
