Reviews for the Blackview BV9800 Pro
Smartphones from Blackview can be quite delicate. However, when it comes to its rugged smartphones, the manufacturer pulls out all the stops. The thick case not only looks mighty solid, but it also houses usable hardware.
Put it simply, we wish that the BV10000 will be the near perfect all-in-one smartphone for handymen, DIYers and field workers operating in challenging environments. All in all, the BV9800 Pro is a fantastic smartphone that shows how far Chinese rugged device manufacturers have achieved over the past four years, so much so that this smartphone is a worthy recipient of our best-in-class award.

I didn’t find the native launcher particularly intuitive, but you can always load your own (I tried Nova Launcher and it worked fine). My biggest disappointment was with the quality of the main (RGB) camera, especially given the 48MP sensor. Blackview makes a big deal out of Night Mode, for example, but it is not as good as either Google’s or Huawei’s. The captured JPEGs also aren’t quite as good as they could be given the high-resolution sensor. Blackview could do a lot to address that by supporting RAW capture, at least in third-party camera apps, but says it has no plans to do so. Then again, it is a $500 phone with a ton of other features, so it isn’t entirely fair to compare image quality to a typical $700+ flagship model. Plus, if you need thermal imaging, the only other smartphone-based solutions will cost you twice as much.

There’s no two ways to put it; the BV9800 Pro remains the best way to get a FLIR/thermal imaging device; it is cheaper than buying the separate FLIR accessory that plugs into a smartphone although you will be able to pick up the older Cat S60 for as little as $353.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
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 somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.
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).
89%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
