Why black shark 3 cannot update to joy ui 12 ???????

Having a physical joystick is the most important thing that manufacturers do not consider. A joystick on the phone itself, just like the Xperia Play. And not to be disconnected from the phone.

Hi. Quick Review here. Ive had it for 4 months. Used it for gaming only. Performance is good but im not impressed at all. If u max out graphics in some games(COD ,GENSHIN, SHADOWGUN), it does lag many times (8gb version).Also heating. It does get hot- acceptable level(more while charging than gaming) .Battery is good. Lasts for a day hard use or 2 days light usage. But if u game id say 7-8 hrs (4G connection) maybe more on wifi. Camera is AWFUL for such price. Pictures are washed out /blurry and lack detail. Night mode is REALLY BAD. NO OIS . Also it has JOY UI , lots of bloatware apps and I DISLIKE it overall. Not too user friendly. Sometimes its not easy to find and navigate through it. Not many updates since i bought it. Its possible I might sell it sooner or later ...but nowadays UI make or break a phone....so not sure yet...of what other options are there as an alternative...
So to sum up:
+Good performamce, good battery life,fast charging

Iam enjoying my Black Shark 3, its since 2 weeks ago after buying. very Extraordinary smartphone... smooth display 90hz, smooth for gaming, except Genshin Impact as well, by using Highest preset and 60fps ,,, the phone is heating πŸ˜‚ so i use Fun cooler pro and freezing my BS3. very worthy gaming phone and less price πŸ’ͺ sorry my english bad.

Same sentiments with you. Still using my Mi Max 2 as the primary phone for work though with in-built call recorder! Battery soc showed some deterioration (92% much?) yet lasts 2 days one charge.

BS3 for certain frame rate-heavy gaming that MM2 sadly couldn't handle without throttling and heating issues.

Android Security patch wise... it's outdated by roughly 8 months at time of this post. Last patched on 5th June 2020.

So yeah... but having said that, Security app does prompt you to scan devices every now and then (internal software updates are quite recent). I am using it for 4 months and so far so good.

Well I just ordered fo the phone and it's on the way. I believe I won't have any issues with the phone as I used Mi max 2 for a year and I have been using Mi max 3 since 2017 when it came out. Screen didn't break after several falls and I get updates from time to time. Xiaomi is a generally good device maker. I can bet on that. If you want a standard device at a normal rate for broke people like us. Go to Xiaomi. It's smart, strong and durable.
