To all who's interested, there will be a software update at some point for the global/international versions for the black shark 4 to bring NFC.

Dissapointed, 02 May 2021Just when I thought they finally Include NFC ....since Blac... moreThere's not enough demand for that. That's too big. Might as well buy a tablet. They're pushing it with 6.5"-6.7" but these are phones. People have to put them in their pockets and such as they go about their daily lives.

Woww!!! BS 4 is Android 12 already?! Really? When did android 12 came out?
Anyways, this is truly a good gaming phone considering its pricepoint.. though k40 gaming is cheaper, snapdragon chipsets are mostly optimized for mobile games by game developers..

Just when I thought they finally Include NFC ....since Black Shark 3 Pro did not have to save Xiaomi a few dollars literally (BIG mistake in 2020 not having NFC seriously?)
Here we are 2021 and they Shrank the size from 7.2 inch to 6.67.... WTH. looks like Im gonna stick with my Mate 20x 5g for a bit longer till someone please makes a 7.2inch (not interested in any folding device as they are not robust enough and far too heavy). Please make a freaking 7.2inch normal fone with a wide aspect ratio not those slim 21:9 rubbish and take my money ASAP.

May I suggest to heavily compare this to the Poco F3? The chipset and price makes this far different vs. latest gaming phones though the Red Magic is pretty close due to its price

Gary speed Test BS as it is completed so fast that phone is never put through thorough test.
Much more intense tests out there, where processor is subject to higher workloads, where Snapdragon 888 retains upto 70% performance on regular phones, 89% and above on gaming phones.
While your a14 gimmick below 60% of its original performance. In short the thermal throttling disaster of the year. Cheap quality trash company cheapened out on cooling. Ewww!!

Accept it, the iPhone 12 barely throttles. You referenced to Gary Explains in the past because the iPhone 11 Pro Max throttled badly. Now that the iPhone 12 didn’t have the same issue, I suppose you unfollowed the page?

I believe the international version has no nfc support, deal breaker

I would easily rather have a gaming device over an iPhone any day. That's why I have a gaming device myself.

IPhone 12's with A14's throttle real bad. So any 870 865+ 865 and 888 is going to be far superior to an A14 once gaming. You can check out YouTube vids to prove this. Once the A14 throttles. It's frame rate is very stuttery even at an abysmally poor 60fps...

If the A14 managed 144fps. Or 165fps.You would need a fire extinguisher after gaming.
