- My 2 cents

In addition to buying more expensive dedicated consoles like Switch and Steam Deck, users also have to shell out more money to buy games.
Maybe you haven’t updated to the 2020s just yet, but gaming phones can be used with a gamepad these days. Most mobile games are free to download and play and can be enjoyed without spending a lot of money. Even premium games from well-known developers like Square aren’t as expensive as console ones.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 20211 year maximum of assistanceNot true. Black Shark offers at least 2 years of software support. The BS1 has been updated from Android 8 to 10. If you look at other gaming phones, Asus ROG Phone and Red Magic only got one year of update.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2021No card slot but hey, it does have a jack. How long before they forget to support this model?Looking at Black Shark’s update history, the BS1 got 2-year Android updates from Android 8-10. That’s already better than the Asus ROG Phone from the same year which didn’t. achieved as Android 9. For BS4 and 4S we can expect at least 2 years of updates.

Anonymous, 21 hours agoOf course, this will be the usual 64MP main, 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP trashThat’s right, and unfortunately, even though it had a 12Mp + Ultra-Wide and a pretty good Telephoto lens, it’s now plagued with the punch hole …
Gaming phones had the advantage of still having no stupid holes / notches, a headphone jack, and a flat screen.
Xiaomi tried to make the Black Shark without the Jack and ended up realizing it was a bad idea and included it from Series 3, now with the 4 they put the hole in.
They never learn their sacred lesson …
The funny thing is that all the early Black Sharks had a main camera + telephoto setup, then the 3 had a 13Mp ultra-wide, and now the 4 have an 8Mp ultra-wide …
The smartphone market is a joke, it’s exactly like they make a list of all the good decisions and decide never to make any, and commit to doing their best to fill the list of bad decisions. …
Imagine if they did a 4 Ultra with:
* Upper frame of the 3 / 3Pro.
* Same main camera (Samsung GW3), but a few IMX586 (main camera from 2/2 Pro, ~ $ 20 each without considering the mass order price reduction), one for Ultra-Wide, the second for a 2x or 3x Telephoto lens.
* OIS for the 3 sensors.
* A hell of a SD card slot!
* Wi-Fi 6E.
* 5000mAh battery of the 3 Pro.
And smart marketing to target not just gamers, the phone would sell so well even if it was slightly more expensive!
Of course, this will be the usual 64MP main, 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP trash

it doesn’t matter as it’s a gaming phone, it will do average to terrible photos.
No one buys a gaming phone for photography.
For this case, M11 ultra is ideal where anyone can have the best camera phone of the year with gaming specs.
Please telephoto and not the stupid mic
