It has many modes, but this mode is the coolest. Its flagship hardware and optimized software provide a superior gaming performance. Gamers are going to enjoy its gaming experience thanks to the Ludicrous Mode that can max boost performance. Besides, it provides the smoothest gaming with buttery-smooth frame-rates.

It provides the lowest latency touch that you only find in this phone. Now, a tiny second can change your game. But, it won’t because its touch report rate is up to 240Hz and its response time is 43.5ms. That makes it the fastest input response for action games, RPGs, and shooters.

To make your gaming experience better, Black Shark 2 has a master touch feature. You can use it to control button layouts and boost your K/D ratio. It has an excellent Gaming AI, which can set a custom touch zone and trigger multiple on-screen actions with only two thumbs.

The microphones will ensure crystal clear in-game voice chat while playing a game. Its AI technology can automatically detect and optimize audio for games, music, videos, and movies.


The phone is one of the most powerful phones in the world. That is because it has a strong Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Octa-core Processor that has 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage capacity.

Operating System and Camera

It comes with the latest Android v9.0 (pie). However, the cameras of this smartphone are great too. It comes with 48 and 12 MP dual rear cameras; along with a 20 MP front camera as well.


It has a huge space. Besides, the phone’s Android interface transforms it into a customized gaming hub. The RAM is promptly cleared for maximum gaming performance then the games will instantly be organized on your fingertips.
