Case, features and operation - Restrained design

"Designed in Italy" is written on the back of the packaging of the Blackview BL6000 Pro. You could say that it is an Italian "designer piece" and accordingly, the Blackview BL6000 Pro has a more restrained design than many other outdoor smartphones. The corners are flattened, the metal frame is partly glossy and partly matte, and the back is flat, rubberized, and has a subtle pattern.

The BL6000 Pro looks chic, but it is also supposed to be robust so that it does not break down in rough everyday life on construction sites, in damp or dusty environments. The manufacturer wants to achieve this with an IP69K certification and MIL-STD-810G. In any case, the screen is rather inadequately protected from drops due to the only minimally protruding frame.

Despite the strong battery, the Blackview BL6000 Pro is not too heavy for its size, which is pleasing.

The smartphone comes with a generous storage capacity, but a micro-SD cannot be used to expand the memory. In return, the user can look forward to dual-SIM and NFC, which enables mobile payment services. However, the highlight is certainly the support for 5G networks, which allows surfing in the fastest mobile network at the moment. At the same time, there are also interesting application possibilities for companies with an internal 5G network.

The Wi-Fi is very fast: The Blackview BL6000 Pro is equipped with Wi-Fi 5 like many other not quite inexpensive rugged smartphones, but it offers 4 antennas, which allows it to achieve much higher data rates.

There are no hardware buttons for menu control, which would have been handy for operating the device with gloves or wet hands. Instead, there is a relatively freely assignable button on the casing's left that can either start an app or trigger one of various system functions, such as starting the camera.

Cameras - Autofocus is sometimes wrong

Recording front camera
Recording front camera

The smartphone's main camera offers 48 megapixels, which can only be used natively in a special camera mode. Instead, four pixels are always combined into one by default. This so-called pixel binning increases the light yield so that pictures should be better in low light. There is also a wide-angle lens and a support lens for portrait blur

Under normal lighting conditions, the camera is decent at rendering details, but cannot keep up with more expensive smartphones. The autofocus sometimes has its problems, as we noticed in the ambient picture. The smartphone also only performs average in brightening and detail sharpness in dark conditions and high contrasts. Much more is possible here with other smartphone cameras

Low light is also not the best condition for photos with the Blackview BL6000 Pro in laboratory conditions. Colors are quite pale in perfect illumination, but the contrasts are good. The sharpness is not always perfect in detail

Videos can be recorded in 4K with 30 fps at most. Exposure adjustment is very fast and smooth, and we also like the image sharpness

The front-facing camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels and takes decent selfies.

Display - BL6000 Pro with bright screen

Subpixel recording
Subpixel recording

The screen with an expanded Full HD resolution is quite bright in our test, as it should be for an outdoor smartphone. The brightness distribution and black level, on the other hand, are rather on a lower level, so the contrast ratio also suffers

The color reproduction is even slightly better than comparable devices in our test series with the spectrophotometer and CalMAN software, but it will deviate too much from the reference value especially in orange and yellow tones for professional photographers.

We also notice PWM, but at a fairly high frequency, so most people should hardly have any problems.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
26 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13 ms rise
↘ 13 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 49 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
40 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19 ms rise
↘ 21 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 47 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (37.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 543.5 Hz ≤ 33 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 543.5 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 33 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 543.5 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15366 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life - A lot of power in a Blackview phone

With the MediaTek Dimensity 800, Blackview's BL6000 Pro comes with a strong chipset that not only enables 5G, but also provides decent power. The SoC easily outshines all comparison devices especially in the field of graphics calculations. However, the device also takes the first place in terms of system performance.

The memory is also much faster than in other high-quality outdoor smartphones.

The casing's temperature development always remained below 40 °C in our test and is thus not critical.

The mono speaker on the smartphone's lower edge does its job quite well. It is averagely loud and cannot reproduce basses, but at least some low mid-tones. It does not overload even at maximum volume and trebles sound quite pleasant. The sound can also be transferred to external devices via Bluetooth 5.1 with all necessary codecs or via the USB-C port.

The battery has a good capacity of 5,280 mAh for an outdoor smartphone in this price range. This gives the Blackview BL6000 Pro a runtime of 14:06 hours in our Wi-Fi test. That is okay, but far from a record. Better energy management could probably work wonders here. The smartphone can be charged with a maximum of 18 watts and needs about 90 minutes for a full charge.

Verdict - Decent outdoor phone with short warranty

In the review: Blackview BL6000 Pro.
In the review: Blackview BL6000 Pro.

The Blackview BL6000 Pro also makes an effort to stand out from the typical outdoor smartphones on the outside. It looks a bit more discreet and actually quite sturdy, even though the screen is not sufficiently protected against bumps in our opinion and the factory-installed protective film is extremely easily scratched. The water and dust resistance is at least given on paper, but the warranty conditions explicitly exclude damage due to water or drops.

The fast Wi-Fi, the 5G capability, the fast SoC, the bright screen, the decent video quality of the camera: There is a lot to like about the Blackview BL6000 Pro. The speaker also delivers good sound to the ears, the device is not too heavy and lasts reasonably long.

The Blackview BL6000 Pro is a stylish, very fast outdoor phone with 5G. However, the camera is average at best.

We find the camera's autofocus, which does not produce sharp pictures in some situations, the photo sensor's moderate brightness for the price range, the short warranty period, and the rather unevenly illuminated screen somewhat annoying.

If you can accept these drawbacks, you will get a fast outdoor phone with 5G and fast Wi-Fi that is pleasing and does not look too obtrusive on the conference table.

Price and availability

The Blackview BL6000 Pro is available at Amazon, but also at some smaller online stores. If you accept shipping from abroad, you can get the smartphone for just under 440 Euros (~$440), otherwise you will have to pay just under 500 Euros (~$500).
