Nowadays, mobile gaming is becoming more and more fascinating so do the smartphones we play it on.
They merely do not have the features that ordinary phones do, like RGB lighting, cooling systems, and even customized buttons. In this tutorial, we shall make a fast effort to determine which one is the king of gaming, from Black Shark 4 and Lenovo L79031 Legion.
Let’s dig into it!

After all, the black shark 4 is not as remarkable in this category as other phones. There’s no RGB, the design isn’t spectacular, and it doesn’t take much to see that it’s much toned down.
In contrast, The Lenovo Legion Duel is all but worldly in design. The Lenovo Legion Duel is boldly graved to “stylish outside, crazy within,” as it is engraved on its holographic glass back.
A comprehensive, cornered brick with RGB LEDs is the Lenovo Legion Duel. At the rear of it is the evident “Y” emblem, which indicates the Lenovo series of games, dubbed “Legion.” In several hues, and even in sporty animations, this “Y” logo will illuminate.
Display and Multimedia
Lenovo L79031 Legion has a 6.65-inch AMOLED FHD+ display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and up to 144Hz refresh rate. The display is flat and uncurved, contrary to traditional knowledge, and retains a significant chin and forehead, which fortunately does not stick out to fit the stereo speakers.
In contrast, The Black Shark 4 uses 6.5-inch FHD + Super AMOLED displays with a 395ppi pixel density, a movie screen ratio of 20:9 and an HDR10+ displays a peak luminosity of up to 1,300 nits.
This is almost your top quality flagship panel, available in equally pricey (and even more costly) gadgets.
The camera module, particularly the one at the rear, is without a doubt the Lenovo Legion Duel’s weakest link. This game smartphone has the following camera module:
64 MP wide-angle primary lens with an f/1.9 aperture, 25mm, 1/1.72″, 0.8m, and PDAF
16 MP ultra-wide-angle lens with an f/2.2 aperture, FOV 120, and 16mm
On the other hand, The Black Shark 4 has three cameras on the back. That’s a 48MP f/1.8 main lens, an 8MP 120° f/2.2 ultrawide lens, and a 5MP f/2.4 macro lens. The front camera is a 20 MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.
Performance and Benchmarks
The Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC of the Lenovo Legio is Qualcomm’s most powerful processor for 2020. This is an accelerated version of the Snapdragon 865.
This version has an overclocked Qualcomm Kryo 585 Prime processor with a clock speed of up to 3.1 GHz, which is 10% faster than the Snapdragon 865.
On the other hand, The Black Shark 4 is a powerful smartphone featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor and an Adreno 650 GPU and 6, 8, or 12GB of RAM.
It has hardware specs that are identical to Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 10s and Mi 11X series. It’s also a slightly modified version of the Snapdragon 865.
Two 2500 mAh batteries may be charged independently in the Legion Phone Duel. This allows rapid 90-watt charging for the smartphone.
You may also concurrently load both USB-C connections. However, black shark 4 comes with solid battery life (4,500mAh). Furthermore, It has a 120W fast charger that can charge a full battery in only 17 minutes.
