Black Shark vs Razer Phone: My Additions

It seems your best buy among the two is the Xiaomi Black Shark. The Black Shark tend to offer new wine (Snapdragon 845) in New wineskin. And at same time, the company have tried to keep pricing on the Black Shark a bit more competitive than competitors offering.

On the other hand, the Razer Phone tends to look more like a smartphone than just a gaming brick (console), which is the plague of the Xiaomi Black Shark.
