Reviews for the Blackview P2

79.4% Blackview P2 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Blackviewberry without keyboard. Not just the name of the Chinese manufacturer Blackview seems to be inspired by the Canadian manufacturer that used to be called RIM. But the smartphone with the simple name of "P2" is not trying to impress with a keyboard, but rather with good connectivity and a large battery. The specifications look promising, but is that enough?

The Blackview P2 stands out with incredible battery life but is held back by an ugly software skin. It’s a solid piece of a hardware that’s a pretty good value at $200, but the unchangeable gold theme is just a major disappointment.

Comment

Model:

Blackview has made quite a few phones this year but the P2 is actually one of the most interesting models. The phone is well-made, it has good specs and a huge 6000mAh battery. It comes with a rather large display, a thick yet durable-feeling build, and a nifty reversible Micro USB charging port so user can plug the cable in either way. The phone ships with all the usual stuff and it has some extras like a soft TPU case, a pair of earphones, a screen protector and the USB OTG cable. The Blackview P2 is a well-made phone that sports a great build quality and it uses mostly metal in the construction. On the bottom there is the micro USB charging and data transfer port, while the volume rocker and power button are both located on the right with the SIM card tray located on the left. Up top there is the 3.5 mm audio port so user can plug in a regular pair of headphones if preferred to a wireless pair. On the front face there are sensors and front camera in the top bezel. Under the hood, the Blackview P2 is sporting a 5.5-inch IPS FHD display, and it comes with a MediaTek MT6750 processor inside complete with four 1.5GHz ARM Cortex-A53 cores and four 1.0GHz ARM Cortex-A53 cores, as well as an ARM Mali-T860 MP2 GPU for the graphics processing and 4GB of RAM. For storage the P2 has 64GB internally which is plenty of space for storing files, but it also has expandable storage support via a microSD card if user need more space.

The Blackview P2 is also equipped with a fingerprint sensor, something that is an essential feature these days.. The accuracy of the sensor is spot on which is great because it means that users will be able to rely on this as an unlock method over and over and over again. For cameras, the P2 is working with a 13-megapixel camera on the back of the device with autofocus, dual LED flash, and f/1.8 aperture, while the front camera is an 8-megapixel sensor with an f/2.4 aperture. There are only two different modes which are normal and panorama, so user don’t have a lot of range when it comes to different types of pictures user can take. However there are some extras, like with the different filters that can be applied to images before user take them which includes effects like Negative, Whiteboard, Posterize, Mono, Sepia, and others. User also have HDR option which is easy to toggle on as there is a dedicated button at the top of the camera UI. The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and it has a fingerprint sensor located on the back for unlocking the device. Connectivity wise it supports Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, and it also supports GPS and A-GPS. Blackview may not be a top selling brand but it certainly looks like it is here to stay and grow.

ARM Mali-T860 MP2: Dual-Core version of the Mali-T860 graphics card from ARM for mostly Android based smartphones and tablets. E.g. in the Mediatek Helio P10 clocked at 700 MHz and produced in 28nm.

5.5":

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).


74.73%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
