    I was looking for a gaming phone and I was going to buy one plus 7 pro, but after reading about the shark 2, I took a risk and went for it. after a couple of weeks of use I have to say that this is an excellent phone. camera is not great, but other then that, gaming is awesome, display, battery, sound are also great.
