Blackview punish their BV5000 to a paint bath and ice attack

blackview bv5000 rugged phone

Blackview are so confident in the strength and durability of their Blackview BV5000 that they have subjected the rugged smartphone to a couple of bizzare tests.

Blackview’s BV5000 is a rubberised Android smartphone with rugged body and tough construction. The idea is the phone can be used while enjoying the great outdoors without fear of destroying it, but it is equally as tough if subjected to abuse at home or in the office.

To prove just how strong the BV5000 is, Blackview have filmed a few short videos that show us how resilient to moisture and shock the phone really is.

The first video shows the Blackview BV5000 take a dip in a tub of paint then washed off with tough bristled brush under a running tap, yet the phone remains to operate.

Next up is a video showing the BV5000 frozen in ice and rescued with the few subtle blows with a metal hammer. While the this goes on the phone working fine and even receiving an incoming call.

In addition to the new Blackview BV5000, the company also have their flagship Alife P1 Pro on sale for around $100 boasting a fingerprint scanner, 5.5-inch display and a box that converts to Google Goggles.

    What about a battery test to check if can last a 100%? I have Alife S1 and phone shutdown randomly at 30% or 35% or 50% never knows when will shutdown.
    Trying battery calibration didn’t work.
    No updates, no fixes, no source code to try to change the ROM.
    No support from them on Facebook or email.
    Don’t buy this crap.

      Seems that Blackview have abandoned Alife S1 as it not even get 5.0 to use the 64bits of the SoC. =(
