        Unknown836, 24 Apr 2021I was suprised to see that the back was plastic.the s21 has a plastic back , a bad quality non premuim cheap plastic back , also the BS 4 is half the price of the s21 launch price at 500euro , so why should that be strange, even if xiaomi gave the BS an sd 732g and not an A plus flagship display and speakers , and use the worst plastic quality back ever , it will still be reasonable for people that see the s21 as a resaonably priced phone at launch bcuz the s21 is double the price , while the BS 4 despite been half the price its still have the best flat display and the best soc and other things wich are better than the s21 even at the display as gizmochina said that this 120hz amoled that xiaomi used in the k40 and BS4 is the best flat display
        whats strange is not having a platsic back ,bcuz even the s21 does , the strange thing is to have better specs in everything except cameras for half the price
        for people who want a normal or gaming phone the K40 or BS 4 is top , but for photography phones like the s21 ultra or iphone 12 pro max wich seems useless for me bcuz you can buy a camera
        some people may say even for gaming phones you can buy consoles , but Ican say consoles are not mobile we cannot have them everywhere
        while for cameras we can put them in the bag or just carrying them everywhere without problems ,so gaming phones or normal phones that dont have overkill cameras like the imx 682 or more with 2,5x zoom or more are pretty good phones and they are 300 or 400 euro not like photography phones wich cost 1500 euro at launch like s21 ultra or ip 12 pmax with its overkill 2,5 optical zoom , those phones for me are useless especially the samsung with trash soc or the iphone with 60hz and trash 20 watt instead of the 120 watt on the 400 euro phones

            Who is gonna bend their phone like that
            I think most things aren't made to bend like that
            So why is it surprising when they break or warp that's not a real life thing that happens

              Unknown836, 24 Apr 2021I was suprised to see that the back was plastic.Just look price and durability of device.
              It's not problem fo me when comparing price to rog and other gaming smart phones.

                Even with that plastic back you still can't give it sd slot.
                Oh samsung already did it.

                  Unknown836, 24 Apr 2021I was suprised to see that the back was plastic.Same. I thought they would use glass since the last BS 2 and 3 used glass. Maybe they use plastic this time to reduce the cost? (Plus the price for sd888 is also higher than sd865+)

                    Unlike the Rog 5 and Lenovo legion, the Black shark 4 is laid out internally like a typical smartphone. The Soc isn't in the middle between two battery packs, which was the weak point of the other two. It's noteworthy that the Black Shark 3 has its SoC in the middle and was flanked by 2 battery packs as well, but didn't suffer any durability issues.

                      This is a very good phone for the price.
                      Compact unlike other gaming phones. Not to forget affordable.
                      Xiaomi showing its versatility again!!!

                          Berserker, 24 Apr 2021Shame? Can you explain why is that? Man its simple.
                          A brand which had to earned their trust over the years made a premium like and look device but for most affordable sweetest price.
                          ompared o a brand which name is wel known since a very long time ago.

                            CptPower, 24 Apr 2021Well its a shame when Xiaomi have to show how to make a pro... moreShame? Can you explain why is that?

                              I explicitly stated that the ORIENTATION of the battery as a possible solution

                              Meaning a possible solution to the problem how in anyways is this making an excuse??

                              You presented a solution geared to the frame all i did was tackle the problem from the battery set up itself

                              My last point about more batteries was in light of the threat of the dual battery idea being discarded entirely which I hope doesn't happen as I would love multi battery/paralell battery technology to mature even further to 4 and beyond

                                Well its a shame when Xiaomi have to show how to make a propper gaming phone compared to other brands where phone bended like nothing.
