The 5MP macro camera is a real piece of work, which is probably why Xiaomi buried it deep within the camera app. Once you do find it, you’ll realize that your efforts were in vain. It is utterly useless and honestly, I don’t see the need to include it for any reason whatsoever. As you can see in the sample below, the Black Shark 4 Pro’s macro stock firmware ROM sensor fails to capture the finer details of my e-reader’s leather cover. The Black Shark 4 Pro has a dedicated Night mode for low-light scenes. A little bit of light goes a long way here, as you can see in the sample shots below.
At the back a small Black Shark 4 logo can be seen being enveloped by an X pattern that gives off a metallic gradient that seems to move when you tilt it. It’s slightly reflective and dark so even though the device is indeed a fingerprint magnet, it was hard to notice them. I suggest you wait three hours for the update to settle and then restart your phone. Is your Xiaomi Black Shark 4 Pro overheating after the recent update? When you use Mobile Data, it gets worse, and when you use Mobile Data when the signals are weak, it gets worst for your phone to manage heat. Suppose you don’t see any new updates, backup your data and do a factory reset. Firmware is the software that runs on Xiaomi Black Shark 4 Pro.
- But if you charge your Xiaomi Black Shark 4 Pro under direct sunlight or in a scorching environment, your phone can no longer control the temperature and will probably stop charging and even go ahead and turn off.
- Flashing will fix software issues, IMEI related issues, and improve device performance.
- One of the models is KSR-A0 (Kaiser) while the other has a PRS-A0 model number (Penrose).

The Black Shark 4 Pro squeezes every last drop of potential out of last year’s components, pairing them with 120W charging and physical shoulder buttons, to make a decent budget gaming phone. But there are too many problems and an extremely creepy assistant app, to make it worthwhile. JOYUI 12.5 all the best features of MIUI 12.5 such as an app drawer, extensive theming options, customizable Always-On Display, floating windows, and privacy features that give you more control. You can switch between 60Hz, 90Hz, and 144Hz screen refresh rates and change the display’s color scheme and temperature manually.
Since the phone doesn’t have a cooling vent or any unusual openings, it would have been relatively easy for Xiaomi to incorporate it. Xiaomi’s gaming sub-brand Black Shark has put out a slew of fantastic gaming phones in the past. Adopting the parent company’s eye view, Black Shark phones usually bundle heavy-duty gear with lower mid-range price tags. The Black Shark 4 Pro is a beefed-up version of the regular Black Shark 4, bumping up the key specs of its mega affordable sibling. While yes, the bottom middle is the most obvious and commonplace for the port, charging the phone and gaming at the same time can be very awkward, causing your hand to cramp as you try to hold and play around it. Moving the port to say the middle left or right side would have been a unique feature and way for a gaming phone such as this to distinguish itself from a “traditional phone”. Between all that, you have a 4500mAh battery that supports 120W charging (and that’s not a typo), whcih can charge the phone to full in less than 17 minutes.
