Reviews for the Blackview BV9800 Pro

77% Blackview BV9800 Pro smartphone review: Rugged smartphone with an infrared camera | Notebookcheck
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.
Blackview BV9800 Pro Review: Budget Rugged Phone With Thermal Camera
Source: Extreme Tech English
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.

ARM Mali-G72 MP3: Integrated graphics card from ARM with 3 cores based on the 2nd generation of the Bifrost architecture.

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.


Helio P70: ARM based octa-core SoC with 4x big ARM Cortex-A73 cores and 4x small and power efficient ARM Cortex-A53 cores. All clocked up to 2.1 GHz. Integrates a Cat-7 (DL) / Cat-13 (UL) LTE Modem (4G), ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU and a dedicated AI processing unit.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.3":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.322 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.


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).


88.5%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
