I’m thinking of buying my kid a phone for his birthday since he doesn’t have a phone but I’m not thinking of the latest versions since they are expensive. I went to the mall and saw this Xiaomi Black Shark Helo phone. It looks great and my kid will surely love it to play games.
Unfortunately, when I asked the sales clerk for the phone’s specs, he only responded with the basic infos. Please share this phone’s specifications so I would know if it is good or bad.
