Blackview BV6000

The Blackview BV6000 is an IP68 certified smartphone which is specifically made to be tough with decent hardware specification. IP68 is a special waterproof, dustproof and shockproof certification which indicates that no dust can enter the enclosure of the smartphone, as well as that it is capable of staying in more than 1 meter of water for at least 30 minutes. This feature is definitely very distinctive from most of the smartphones in the market which usually go up to IP67. The Blackview BV6000 is built with bumps resistance, press withstand, waterproof and scratch resistance. The toughness of this phone is mainly due to the fact that the Blackview BV6000 has a CNC full metal frame and a polycarbonate fibreglass enclosure to hold the smartphone components. Moreover, the display is also protected by Corning Gorilla glass 3 to resist scratches. With so many protective features built into the smartphone, the Blackview BV6000 is suitable for users who require a more resistant smartphone that can survive in a harsh outdoor environment such as mountain climbers or underwater divers. Inside it includes a MTK6755 64bit Octa Core CPU clocked at 2.0 GHz, a Mali-T860MP2 GPU, 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage capacity. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow system uses a Blackview customised UI for a fresh user experience. As for the camera, it features a 13 MP f/2.0 rear camera with autofocus and flash. Besides that, it has a 5 MP front camera for video calls. With its IP68 certification, it is safe to say that the Blackview BV6000 can be used to take photos even in the rain or in shallow underwater which breaks the limitation of smartphone photography experience. This is the kind of feature which might not seem necessary but is completely useful when you have it. The display of the Blackview BV6000 is a 4.7 inch HD screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It needs to be in that size because this smartphone is bulkier with its cushioning material to withstand damages. it is a clear effort to compensate screen size for a smaller size body. Another plus point for the Blackview BV6000 is the large capacity non-removable Lithium-ion battery. The battery has a capacity of 4500 mAh. Fast charge support on the battery can charge the battery to full capacity at 2.5 hours. For connectivity, it features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.1 and GPS. The Blackview BV6000 supports dual SIM with dual standby with 4G LTE and is sold unlocked for worldwide use. Sensors built into the smartphone include atmosphere pressure sensor and compass. An atmosphere pressure sensor could be useful for people who like mountain climbing. It helps to calculate the elevation of a mountain via measuring atmospheric pressure.The phone is available in three colors, which are sunshine yellow, violet black and army green. The Blackview BV6000 is a really good phone for its specific reasons. It is especially made to be a tough phone, which isn’t important to the majority users. However, if for some reason a person requires his or her phone to be extremely tough and good, this is the phone to go with. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

At R5 200, the BV6000 falls into the mid-range bracket. What makes the device most pleasing though, is that the money you're paying is not only going towards a rugged device, but also one that will stand you in good stead when you're away from the type of environment it's designed to handle.

Blackview BV8000 Pro

If you are the kind of phone user who can’t avoid dropping your phone once in a while this Chinese manufacturer may have an answer for you in the Blackview BV8000 Pro. While phones these days are getting slimmer than slim they aren’t getting any tougher like the bygone era of your mother's Nokia 3310, which is still the running gag among users who remembers it even in 2017. The Blackview BV8000 Pro was originally unveiled at the MWC 2017. Let's take a look at what the phone offers. The first thing to note here is this phone is IP68 rated which means it is both dust and water resistant up to a depth of 1.5 m for 30 minutes. While it has the said rating this device doesn’t have any protective covers for its connectors. This is a little awkward although Blackview has made sure the connectors themselves are impermeable. In terms of chassis material and construction the Blackview BV8000 Pro is made out of a mixture of some rubber dampeners and plastic, no metal chassis here. Depending on your take, this is either disappointing or a smart move, although it is understandable as metal chassis tend to dent. Overall, the rigidity is as advertised with no noticeable flex. Hardware-wise the Blackview BV8000 Pro is powered by a Mediatek Helio P20 MT6757 chip, 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage with expandability via the microSD slot. The Blackview BV8000 Pro is also equipped with a Sharp IGZO FHD screen, which has excellent color reproduction and is also quite reasonably bright even when used outdoors under sunlight. Adding to its rugged theme the panel is also protected with Corning’s Gorilla glass 3. As with most smartphones these days the Blackview BV8000 Pro is also equipped with a fingerprint reader which is located on the back of the chassis. Moving along to software the Blackview BV8000 Pro is pre-installed with Android 7 Nougat with unusual software such as an Earthquake Warning System, Sound Meter and a Heart Rate app. This might prove useful and isn’t the usual bloatware users have come to expect of most android devices. Fortunately, as bloatware is kept at a minimum. In terms of performance everything ran smoothly as expected. However, the performance is somewhat mildly disappointing when compared to competitors. Lastly the Blackview BV8000 Pro is equipped with a 4180 mAh battery which should keep this device satiated in its power needs. Normal usage shows that the phone tops out at 27 hours on a single charge while on 3G, which is about on par or even slightly better than most smartphones out there. Being a rugged phone, the Blackview BV8000 Pro might suit professionals at a relatively affordable price. However, when compared to its predecessor it seems that it is less balanced this time around.

Outdoor heavyweight. With the BV8000 Pro, Blackview brings an update to its outdoor smartphone series that is the successor to the BV7000. The features are remarkable: 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, Full HD display, and a 16 Megapixel camera. In addition, it is IP-68 certified and has a fingerprint sensor and some other sensors that might be helpful in an outdoor smartphone.

Blackview BV7000 Review
Source: Yugatech English
The low price point $143.99 (roughly Php7319.30 before taxes and other fees), the mid-range hardware, lack of updates, and security features are a small compromise for what is an almost indestructible build. If you’re looking for a low-cost, hard-wearing phone that is suitable for travel and an active lifestyle, then the BV7000 might be worth looking into.

Blackview BV9000 Pro

There aren’t many smartphone makers that make rugged phones anymore. Many manufacturers used to have a dedicated series for their rugged phones and these phones were usually on the low-end side with nothing much to offer other than their solid built quality, water and dust resistance and a much bigger and heavier body. These days, only one large phone maker makes rugged phones and its none other than Samsung with their Galaxy S-Active series. However, a new Chinese company called Blackview is slowly becoming well-known for their rugged phones. The Blackview BV9000 Pro is their latest offering. For a start, it has a Mediatek Helio O25 processor with the ARM Mali-T880 GPU. Coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB ROM, it should offer a very respectable performance. The display is a 5.7-inch IPS screen with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a resolution of 1,440 x 720 pixels. If there is one huge let down in this device, it is definitely the screen. The display offers decent outdoor visibility and sharpness but its low resolution definitely shows in some areas especially video playback. The rear optics has a dual camera setup with a 13 megapixel and a 5 megapixel f/2.2 shooter. Photo quality is decent and the portrait mode is a plus point considering that this device is a budget phone. Low light images on the other hand appear to be a disaster and nothing much can be adjusted to get a proper shot. The camera shoots videos in 4k. But again, do not expect much from a budget device. The front camera has a 8 megapixel sensor and selfies taken with this camera are decent enough to be posted on facebook and Instagram. The Blackview BV9000 Pro is shipped with a heavily customized Android 7.1 Nougat. However, even with all the customization, performance it is still good with no lags while switching between apps or running heavier apps. Being a rugged phone, it does look and feel huge. It weighs in at 253 grams and has a dimension of 81.1 x 162.0 x 13.4 mm. It has a rather unique hexagon kind of shape with a big chin and forehead. The bezels on the side are very slim, making it look like a well-designed 2017 device. The device does not have a headphones jack but is supplied with a USB type-C to 3.5mm audio jack cable. An OTG cable is also supplied in the box just like how Samsung does it. The physical buttons has been replaced with on-screen buttons and the physical buttons for volume adjustment and power feel nice and have a good click to it. The phone has a IP-68 rating and its ports are covered with flaps to avoid water damage. Its rugged body assures that the phone will survive a few drops. The Blackview 9000 Pro is shipped with a massive 4180 mAh battery and the supplied fast charger can give it a full charge in about 1.5 hours. The Blackview 9000 Pro is certainly a good looking rugged phone with good specs and battery life. Its lower price point makes it easier to purchase for users who are in need for a rugged phone without adding a casing to a normal phone. In the past, they’d have to fork out a larger amount to get a Samsung device. However, the screen resolution is a letdown, but for its price, this is forgivable.

Powerful brick. Back in August, we had the BV8000 Pro in review. Today, we are proud to present its successor, the BV9000, and you better watch out: That thing is a massive brick and most likely tougher than a human being. It also marks a point in time where Blackview is the only OEM with two current outdoor smartphones listed in our database. The newcomer shares several features with its own predecessor. In some aspects Blackview has managed to improve upon the phone, in others the company has made it worse. Let’s take a closer look and find out what exactly this means in our extensive review of the BV9000.

60% Blackview BV6800 Pro: Rugged Looks, Good Internals (Review and Giveaway!)
Source: Make Use Of English
This is a fantastic cheap smartphone. It has a great screen and a decent battery despite its shortcomings. It’s chunky of course, but still aesthetically pleasing and feels good in the hand.

We should always level out that, regardless of it being repeated many instances elsewhere, the US navy doesn’t provide a certification service for cellphone makers, and subsequently having handed among the exams outlined within the MIL-STD-810 doc isn’t ‘certification’ or something remotely near that.

Blackview BV9700 Pro

The Blackview BV 9700 Pro is a one of a kind rugged smartphone model specially designed to withstand the most extreme of extremities. It is built for the outdoor and it is built to last longer than one would have normally expected in environments that are harsh beyond reasonable belief. The Blackview BV 9700 Pro’s very creation is based off the common blueprint of a rugged smartphone model in which it is commonly referred to in occasions of outdoor excursions and heavy duty labor in various kinds of geographical environment. What puts the word ‘Pro’ into Blackview BV 9700 Pro are the impressive features and stellar specifications that both come with the device itself which leave no room for mistakes in the most arduous of environments. First and foremost, the Blackview BV 9700 Pro is equipped with allegedly the most intelligent processor ever. Whether this is a marketing ploy or not, the Helio P70 processor is nevertheless a dauntless octa-core processor chip which proves the point and secures itself a solid standing for potentially being the most intelligent processor ever to exist. This is attributed to the very fact that the Helio P70 processor is capable of clocking out at a performance rate of up to 525 MHz thanks to the incorporation of the powerful ARM Cortex A73/A53 CPU complex. Compared to the previous unit (Helio P60), the Helio P70 has recorded a significant increase of 13 % faster clock speeds. The integration of the Helio P70 processor within the Blackview BV 9700 Pro paves the way towards great success while also clipping lesser to non-existent errors. The features that were being carefully put together within the Blackview BV 9700 Pro comprise of and are not limited to the inclusion of a VOC Air Quality Detection sensor. The VOC Air Quality Detection sensor assists the users of the Blackview BV 9700 Pro in detecting indoor air pollutants within the perimeter where the user would presently inhibit. The VOC Air Quality Detection sensor is able to pick up a large range of manufactured or organic chemical compounds that have polluted the air serves as a cautionary alert for the user to preemptively vacate a highly condensed area before breathing in too much hazardous compounds in the air due to the lack of proper equipment. This feature will undoubtedly aid in a lot of rescue efforts as well as for the analysis of air quality for research or documenting purposes. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The Blackview BV9100 has a battery capacity that surpasses most power banks. On top of that it has a relatively affordable price tag with a very decent set of components with only one chink to its armor; its processor.

50% Blackview BV5900 rugged smartphone review
Source: Techradar English
We find it difficult to recommend the Blackview BV5900 for two reasons: It is not competitive with existing smartphones including Blackview’s very own BV6800 Pro and its components are likely to struggle under load as clearly indicated by our benchmark results. Save yourself from commiseration and choose something else, there’s plenty of other superior ruggedised smartphones out there. Blackview will have to drop the price of the BV5900 by at least 40% for us to even consider it as a worthy candidate.
