Xiaomi Black Shark VS Razor Phone

Xiaomi Black Shark VS Razor Phone: Which is the Best Gaming Smartphone?. The Gaming industry is experiencing tremendous growth especially in the last couple of years. Gone are the days where one could only play games on consoles such as Play Station and Xbox. Smartphone users have developed a habit of playing games on their device. Well, most of these smartphones were not built for playing games. Which is why phone manufacturing companies have started producing smartphones mainly built for playing games. Not babyish games like “Temple Run,” am talking about hardcore games like “Modern Combat,” “Mortal Kombat, “Tekken” e.t.c.

For this article, we would be looking at two of the best smartphones for gaming right now. The Xiaomi Black Shark and Razor Phone have all the key features required for strong gaming.

Xiaomi Black Shark comes with the best gaming design in my opinion. I mean the Razor Phone looks more like every other smartphone out there.

The Razor Phone is only available in Black body color. While the Xiaomi Black Shark is available in Black and Gray body colors.

The Xiaomi Black Shark features a home button which houses the fingerprint sensor. While the fingerprint sensor of the Razor Phone is on the side. The sensor is going to be small since the phone is 8mm in thickness. They both have a dual rear camera lens with LED flash at the top-left corner.
