Blackview Alife P1 Pro WIFI signal strength looks good in this video test


blackview Alife p1 pro wifi test

Blackview have posted a video comparing the WIFI signal strength of the Xiaomi Mi4, Samsung Note 4 and the Alife P1 Pro.

It might be something that we take for granted these days but there can be some rather large differences from phone to phone in terms of WIFI strength and reception.

In recent months we have seen many phone makers move to steel and alloy construction, and in some cases this has had a diverse effect on WIFI signal strength.

Blackview want to ensure their potential customers that WIFI isn’t going to be an issue with their Alife P1 Pro and have put together a video showing a comparison between the Xiaomi Mi4, Samsung Note 4 and Blackview Alife P1 Pro.

If we take the video on surface value then the Blackview Alife P1 Pro has an impressive WIFI signal strength and should be better than both the Xiaomi Mi4 and Samsung Note 4. The better test result could be due to the construction of the Blackview (less metal) which prevents interference.

Another reason for the high test score might be the WIFI network. We don’t actually see that each phone is on the same WIFI network in the test. Perhaps the router the Blackview it connected to is just physically closer than the router the other phones are using?

In other news Blackview will soon be releasing an OTA update for the Alife P1 Pro to greatly improve the camera, WIFI and other features. The Alife P1 Pro comes with a 5.5-inch display, MT6735 chipset, 13 mega-pixel camera, fingerprint scanner and 2GB RAM for just $119.99.

    That’s the trouble with these manufacturer released videos, we have no idea if they are being honest or no as most are known to lie. There are always too many variable that they don’t show us to make these videos pointless.

    Nice Wifi but look at the antenna test. They’re cheating. The Mi 4 and Note 4 have China Mobile LTE sims and the Blackview is only getting Edge. Antenna strength on Mi 4 and Note 4 is right at ‘signal drop’ levels but the Edge sig on the Blackview is at -89 which is pretty strong.

    For this to be a fair test, all three phones should have the same China Mobile sims and then maybe I’d be impressed.

    Hahaha Blackview comparing with quality brands, must be a joke. Why they don’t try comparing Alife S1 instead. Good one Blackview

    euh wifi is wifi not mobile signal; so the provider has nothing to do with wifi signal. And at 1.44 you can see the wifi accespoint configuration including mac address. So it looks like the same accespoint. If it is a setup, then they would have ‘clipped’ the antenna in the Mi4 and Note4

    So nothing to say about it. But also nothing to bash about it.

    New Alife P1 Pro is even slower than my 4 years old Galaxy S3

    Skip to 2:00 to see the slowness.
    All other phone sent to reviewer most probably having higher spec (MT6735) compared to the one sold to consumer (MT6735M).
    It also overheats very much:::::::
