ByJulio Ventura 2019-05-21 2868

The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 presented in China a couple of days ago is one of the most powerful smartphones on the market thanks to the modern CPU and several features that make it something decidedly unique. One of these devices is right in front of our eyes or, to be precise, between our fingers, it is indeed a technology that allows the touchscreen to update itself faster and therefore have a better gaming experience.

This functionality was put to the test by one of the best mobile gamers in circulation who managed to reach the record score of 1405 points on the Chinese game "God". Semi-blasphemous name aside, let's see the video of the gamer in action!

Xiaomi Black Shark 2 from record, the world's fastest touch response

Well what to say? Difficult to give an opinion on the speed of the touch without touching it, but the ease with which the gamer managed to beat the record would suggest that the Black Shark 2 is quite responsive.

From a technical point of view, we know that the gaming phone uses a technology that Xiaomi calls "Fast Finger". In practice we have a 240Hz touchscreen frequency, this allows us to have a touch response at a record speed of 43.5 milliseconds. Let's say records because in fact it is the smartphone with the shortest touch response time on the market, even compared to Apple smartphones that usually dominate the category and other Samsung flagships.

So, thanks to this technology implemented on the Xiaomi Black Shark 2, the boy in the video managed to reach the very high score of 1405.

As for the other features dedicated to gaming, we also have two pressure sensors on the screen. The sensors work on the two parts of the screen (left and right in landscape mode) and can be used as additional buttons. So for example you can set the strongest touch to perform an action instead of having to move your finger to press another button, actually speeding it up.

In addition to the 6.39 inch screen with AMOLED technology and this other feature, the Xiaomi Black Shark stands out for its top-of-the-range hardware, we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 as a processor, a liquid cooling system called “liquid cooling 3.0 "and a very special design with a metal / glass body and a captivating line of LEDs that border the back cover.
