Good big 6.67-inch screen, made by technology OLED with screen refresh rate 144 Hz (see all smartphones with screens 144 Hz in the catalog) installed in the smartphone Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro the thickness of the case is 9.5 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body. In addition, the screen area in relation to the body area affects the positive feeling of the phone in the hands. This model has a screen area of 80% to 90% of the body area (watch all smartphones with a screen from edge to edge). And one more thing, the screen area is increased thanks to the upper cutout above it, while the body area remains unchanged. Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro received a cutout in the form of a small hole at the top of the screen for a selfie camera and multiple sensors. Check out detailed photos of this smartphone for a better understanding of how it looks in real life.

Main camera and selfie camera

In addition, the main camera has a feature, namely additional modules. It is better to judge about the advantages and disadvantages of several lenses in one smartphone, as well as about the possibilities of software image enhancement, by real photos and videos taken with such a camera. Therefore, be sure to look at all the photos of the Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro on this page in order to draw your conclusion on whether this is a good camera or not.

In this smartphone, the front camera is located as usual at the top of the screen, like in 99.9% of other models. We have collected smartphones with pop-up front camera in the catalog that may seem much more interesting to you. In these models, there are practically no frames around the screen, because the front camera is located inside the case and does not take up space above the screen. The selfie camera only pops up when you activate the front camera mode. Take a photo or video, exit the Camera application. And after that, the socket with the front camera drives into the body. Real engineering magic!
