Its a good spirit to present your brand the way you give something for free.
Look at Samsung in every box they added wireless galaxy buds.
But i really think they added their price into the price of the phone.
Because if S10+ cost 320 euros to make and sells from 999 euros there is plenty of money difference for having much more free than just earplugs.

gaming phone desperately need built in joystick, look at that glorious thumbs on screen real estate

LG Superfan, 15 Mar 2019You expect them to give away 7.5 billion units so everyone ... moreMan they have enough money .
And i dont think that 7,5 billion people needs a smartphone.
But 100 units is just not enough.

And the s8 has a heatpipe too. The previous blackshark had two heatpipes. And these blacksharks are cheaper than oneplus.

So I am assuming than playing PUBG on Galaxy S9 or S10 or on any flagship from this year even Xiaomi Mi 9 should not be a problem. Cooling - yes. Now - do we need it?

Which Android version out of the box? 8 or 9?

Dorsefrith, 15 Mar 2019I do not get it. What in this phone will be "gaming" relate... moreBasically nothing, except the design. Heck, I wouldn't even call the RAZER Phone 2 or the ASUS ROG Phone a gaming smartphone, even if both sport faster refresh rate than the rest at 120Hz and 90Hz respectively. I mean, if u care to look at the specifications, you're getting similar specifications as to those in high-end flagships, that isn't much to stand out other than the gamer-y design, faster refresh rate, and the cooling. Other than these standout points, the rest of it either does the same thing or even worse as compared to high-end flagships, especially the mediocre camera performance u get from these "gaming" smartphones. And with the cost pricing around the usual high-end flagships we use (idk, maybe you're using a high-end flagship too?), it is obvious that one should go for high-end flagships instead of these "gaming" smartphones, clearly because they're better overall. Unless you're into these kind of heavy gaming design which in my case it looks ugly, there isn't a need to purchase one. If it's a gaming smartphone, then these brands who are doing it should collaborate with Qualcomm in creating a custom chipset that is much more powerful as compared to those of high-end flagships, in terms of CPU and GPU of course. As for cooling, they should be doing something similar to what the RAZER Phone 2 did, a massive vapor chamber (though it does heat up and made people think that the chipset is overheating sometimes) to let heat dissipate. Cameras can be improved to make it decent, if not excellent. Of course, that is if the games are not targeted at casuals and it's very well optimized. THEN, I'll safely say that those people who play on smartphone games can be called a gamer and gaming smartphones are worth making

Dorsefrith, 15 Mar 2019I do not get it. What in this phone will be "gaming" relate... moreYes. Cooling technology, and it works, even if just for a few more minutes. Even with the latest chips, its not totally useless.

Have any of the previous Black Sharks got any MIUI updates? I never see Black Sharks listed in Xiaomi's official MIUI download pages.

I do not get it. What in this phone will be "gaming" related? Cooling technology? Did any one noticed any need for that with new processors? Design? You can buy any sticker and have also nice phone. Oh I know RGB led. Is it still worth to pay more just for few goodies?
