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
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.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.268 kg:

This weight is typical for smartphones.


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 bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
