Black Shark 2 Video Review: A Powerhouse Android Gaming Smartphone

Gaming phones have become a trend in the last year and the Black Shark 2 is one of the best options on the market. Joshua from Pocketnow took to YouTube to share his review of the device and the handy controller attachment. Is this the best gaming phone so far?

Joshua talks about some of the usual things you find in gaming phones. It has all the expected features you’d find in most flagship phones, but, as usual, since this is a gaming-focused device, features like the camera aren’t top notch. However, the gaming performance is great and the controller makes it a perfect device for PUBG Mobile. The “ludicrous mode” makes even the most taxing games play smoothly. Check out the full video review of the Black Shark 2 below.
