This year's cell phone market sales decline seriously, it seems that everyone is not willing to buy new machines, plus Qualcomm switched to TSMC foundry, the new machine 4nm chip, not only improved performance, the key is to reduce power consumption, just ask who does not want a superb performance, but low power processor? Under the influence of Snapdragon 8+, many flagships have been reduced in price, even including the Snapdragon 8Gen1 flagship that was just released recently.
Black Shark also recently had a Snapdragon 8+ equipped gaming phone online, superb configuration and exaggerated cooling solution, pricing is not cheap, the second half of the year cell phone manufacturers gave the Snapdragon 8+ flagship a very good configuration, so the price has increased compared to the first half of the flagship. In this case, or older models more fragrant ah, now the black shark 4 Pro straight down 800, last year's expensive Snapdragon 888 flagship, the top of the black shark 4 series, now 2699 onwards to hand, 16 + 512GB version to hand price of 3999, the new machine release to buy the old model is the most cost-effective choice.
So is the Black Shark 4 Pro still worth getting? The power consumption of Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 8+ on the actual use.
The rear three cameras are arranged in a straight line, more characteristic than the rectangular arrangement of the Black Shark 5, metal frame + glass back panel, good texture, comfortable grip. The front is a 6.67-inch centered perforated screen with a small aperture and narrow bezels all around, so it looks like a high screen-to-body ratio.
The screen supports 144Hz refresh rate, high brush brings smoother use experience, plus MEMC motion compensation technology, the Black Shark 4 Pro also has improved gaming performance, full link optimization, not only high brush, but also very good screen color display, 1300nit peak brightness, HDR10+ high dynamic, ultra-high contrast ratio display clear and delicate, and eye protection and screen pressure sense, taking care of to every aspect of daily use. The whole machine weighs 220g, which is slightly heavy in your hand, but not oppressive.
Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 8+ where the gap is
The reason why Snapdragon 8+ has attracted so much attention is the breakthrough in power consumption in addition to the switch to TSMC foundry, compared to Snapdragon 888, of course, Snapdragon 8+ is more fragrant, after all, the performance is about 20% ahead and the power consumption is at least 30% lower. 800,000+ scores and 100W+ scores are the difference without me saying that we all know. Based on ARM V9 architecture, X2 mega-core frequency up to 3.2GHz, there are three 2.7GHz large core, small core frequency also increased to 2.0GHz, GPU performance, not to mention the Snapdragon 8Gen1 on the 30% increase.
Snapdragon 888: CPU single-core power consumption 4.0W, GPU full-load power consumption 8.34W
Snapdragon 8+: CPU single-core power consumption 3.7W, GPU full-load power consumption 8.0W
From the point of view of use, or Snapdragon 8+ better ah, in the game test performance is better, especially the "original God" high quality, Snapdragon 8+ can 60 fps full frame operation, power consumption is lower than Snapdragon 8Gen1, especially the temperature control, compared to Snapdragon 888 gap is still relatively obvious.
But Snapdragon 8+ belongs to the more ideal state, after all, expensive ah, from the cost, or the old flagship higher, Snapdragon 888 heat is not insurmountable, after all, the game phone is more comprehensive in heat dissipation and optimization, so the game performance is stronger than the regular flagship, the black shark 4 Pro cooling system is composed of two super large area of liquid cooling + multiple direct contact alloy unit + metal fusion technology, covering all the heat sources on the upper and lower sides of the motherboard, super heat dissipation, the core temperature can be reduced to 18 degrees, even for a long time, the body temperature can remain normal.
Black Shark 4 Pro performance overall is still very strong, good core performance, running score 83W, and super fast memory, not only support LDRR5, and SSD + UFS3.1 dual-channel memory, higher bandwidth transfer rate faster, and 16GB of operating memory, ultra-high smoothness, especially application startup and content acceleration speed is very fast, this is the significance of the memory upgrade, not only the game performance enhancement, the daily use experience is also very good.
There are also very good ultra-linear dual speakers, 7 magnetic circuit sound unit, surround-type stereo sound and amplitude, whether watching video catch-up or playing games, the use of experience more immersive. 64 million rear triple camera, the main camera has a strong light-sensitive ability, can straight out of high-definition detail-rich images, there is a 120 ° ultra-wide angle and 5 million macro, three camera combination can meet the needs of the use of multiple scenes, shooting The effect is good, daily use is sufficient.
4500mAh battery capacity, battery capacity is general, but support from morning to night use enough, the good thing is that the charging speed is very powerful, support 120W flash charging, 15 minutes on full charge experience, the battery life is still good, there are multi-functional NFC, shark shark sauce intelligent assistant, a collection of a variety of game auxiliary plug-in intelligent magic, is a game performance outstanding, comprehensive performance is very strong game phone, less game phone fancy design, but also very suitable for daily use.
