Reviews for the Blackview BV5900

73% Blackview BV5900 Smartphone Review – Outdoor Smartphone with Long Battery Life | Notebookcheck
The Blackview BV5900 is an outdoor smartphone with a good protection class and a large battery. It doesn't even cost 200 Euros and could be a real bargain if you need a phone for harsh environments. We'll take a closer look at the smartphone in the review.
50% Blackview BV5900 rugged smartphone review
Source: Techradar English version
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.

Blackview has always been known for its effort in producing rugged smartphones that are protective against drop-down damages and also comes with shock absorption, dust and waterproof and battery temperature support. This is definitely an applaudable effort as it caters for the workers who are likely to deal with unpredictable circumstances in the working environment. Having said that, the latest Blackview BV5900, is no different. This phone has been introduced with an all in all shock, water and dustproof. The overall industry-leading rugged rubber covering makes BV5900 more stringent as compared to any of Blackview’s previous lines. In addition, the silicone layer and multiple rigid layers which has been incorporated within this model definitely adds an extra value when it comes to absorbing shock. This obviously improves the overall user experience. Apart from that, the IP68 and IP69K certification also ensures its 1.5m deep waterproof support which can eradicate user’s fear if the phone was accidentally dropped in the water. The 5.7 inches HD AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 is definitely undefeatable in its presentation. It caters for fabulous visual experience for users while watching videos or even when hovering on YouTube. The phone also provides a resolution which is up to 720p screen resolution. This again, improves the overall user experience.

As compared to all the previous rugged smartphones, this model comes in with a futuristic look which has been inspired by the science-fictional space capsule design. BV5900 comes in three different colors namely orange, army green and black for users to choose from based on individual preferences. With its waterproof capability and durability, this phone is definitely the best choice for those who love mountain biking, fishing, surfing or any kind of water or sport adventures. This smartphone will definitely heighten the user experience to an entirely new level. However, it should be noted that this model was mainly intended for diverse and hardcore professionals which makes it quite a disappointment for all the gamers out there. But, the 3GB of RAM can definitely cater for decent game playing but nothing over the top per say. In contrast though, the MT67961 Quad-Core 2.0 GHz processor can obviously boost other app performances within the smartphone. There is also 32GB RAM and expandable memory support up to 128GB for a large number of photos and videos storing. In terms of its battery, BV5900 has been incorporated with a massive 5580mAh battery which is said to be able to keep the phone alive for nearly 600 hours in standby mode. Even when gaming, the phone can stand for up to 12 hours overall. As for the camera, BV5900 has a 13-megapixel IMX214 rear camera which allows photo snapping just like a professional photographer. There is also a 0.3-megapixel sub camera to automatically adjust the field depth along with a 5-megapixel selfie camera. But, the best part about this phone has to be its waterproof capability which allows underwater photo shooting. Every smartphone does come in with its own unique features and flaws but there is definitely somebody out there who would benefit from it in a way on its own.

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

This brand from the Blackview International Group was created in Hong Kong in 2013. Smartphones are the focus of marketing.

However, there are only few reviews and the market shares are very low (2016).

64.33%: Such a poor rating is rare. There are only a few notebooks that were rated even worse. The rating websites do not give a purchase recommendation here.
