Sony PS4 Pro 1TB Console Full Detailed Review
PS4 Pro Design
The PS4 Pro comes with a mate finish that looks very beautiful. Its design is made up of 3 layers.
Sony has given 3 USB ports in the PS4 Pro, with 2 USB ports on the front while one port is on the back.
If you do not know, then let me tell you that you used to get only 2 USB ports in older models of PlayStation.
On the back side of the PS4 Pro you will see some kind of button design (like gaming controllers) although these are not buttons, only the design of buttons.
Talking about the weight of the PS4 Pro, it is slightly heavier than the standard PS4, as well as its size is also slightly larger.
So if you like thin and light playStation then you can go for PS4 Slim but make sure you have to play with 1080p.
The dimensions of the standard PS4 are 27.5 x 30 x 5.3 cm while the PS4 Pro comes with 29.5 x 32.7 x 5.5 cm dimensions.
Another change in the design of PS4 Pro has been done in its logo. The PS4 Pro has a logo with silver finish on the front which looks quite good.
In this, you do not get to see the HDMI input port.
The storage capacity of this PlayStation has also been enhanced. In the standard PS4 where you used to get only 500GB hard drive, in PS4 Pro you will get 1TB storage capacity.
Along with this, Wi-Fi antenna have also been improved by Sony, which will give you internet speed much faster.
In PS4 Pro you will get best dual band 802.11ac wireless Wi-Fi antenna and 4.0 Bluetooth.
PS4 Pro Performance
You people were probably waiting for this point, so let’s also see the performance of PS4 Pro.
Sony has made this Playstation quite advanced. There are many features in it that will make your gaming experience very spectacular.
As I told you earlier, this PlayStation has the highlight feature its 4k support
But not only 4k support, but it also has many features that you must know.
Sony has made the PlayStation 4 Pro especially for 4k users, so if you don’t have HDR TV then I will give you a suggestion
You should invest a little bit more
Because buying PlayStation only makes sense when you enjoy the full gaming experience.
And trust me, when you are playing your favorite game, and you will see every little detail of it, then it has a different kind of experience.
Older versions of PlayStation, whether it is the Standard PS4 or PS4 Slim, when you play the game, you will have to face slight lag after playing the game for a while.
And it is very frustrating for every gamers.
But, in PS4 Pro you will get amazing smoothness that will take your game experience to the next level.
let me tell you that despite 4k support in PS4 Pro, it cannot be better than highly upgraded PC. But still you will definitely get to see a better gaming experience.
PS4 Pro For 1080p Users
I understand that who own a 1080p TV and then makes a purchase for PS4 Pro which itself an expensive machine, Gets a little hard.
As much as I know, Not everyone owns 4k TV.
But I have a surprise for you or you can say that a bonus from Sony itself.
For PS4 Pro users, there is a 2 option
One is, you can choose 4k resolution with 30 FPS
And the second one is, 1080 resolution with 60 FPS frame rate.
Which is a bonus feature for 1080p users.
Doesn’t matter whether you’re a 4k user or 1080p user, you can select 1080p with 60FPS.
Some games are give you a better experience if you go with the 1080p + 60 FPS option.
