Reviews for the Blackview BV9000 Pro

79.6% Blackview BV9000 Pro Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
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.

The BV9000 Pro is a mixed bag, and there are no real unique selling points that will wow you away from the competition, or indeed its cheaper siblings.

Comment

Model: 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.

ARM Mali-T880 MP2: Mobile graphics solution for tablets and smartphones, which can be found in ARM SoCs (for mostly Android based devices). The Mali-T880 can be built with 1 to 16 clusters, where the MP2 version features 2 clusters/cores. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

5.7":

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.

This weight is typical for smartphones.


Blackview:

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).


82.4%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
