Blackview BV5000 unboxing

Blackview have gone for a rugged phone for their top of the range phone of the year, here is our Blackview BV5000 unboxing.

Blackview’s first rugged phone is also the phone with the largest battery in the Blackview range too. As the name suggests the BV5000 has a 5000mAh battery and this time we are certain that this is really the size because the battery is huge.

Gizchina News of the week

The phone is designed to be waterproof and shock resistant and comes with dust/water covers on the 3.5mm headphone jack and USB ports, while the removable battery panel has a thick rubber seal and can be screwed in place with 4 screws and the supplied screwdriver. Keeping the phone tough is a rubber, plastic and alloy construction, but a 5-inch glass 2.5D screen adds a nice touch of style to the device.

Hardware includes that monster 5000mAh battery, a Mediatek MT6735P Quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, dual SIM, micro SD, 5-inch HD display, 8 mega-pixel main camera and 2 mega-pixel front. For those of you wondering if 4G LTE will work for you the supported frequencies are LTE:B1/B3/B7/B8/B20.

That’s all for now, if you need any questions answered before the review feel free to ask below.

    I think it’s going to be:
    -average screen and cameras
    -quite smooth os with some bug here and there
    -possibly some little connection issues
    -glorious battery life

    Do someone wants to bet against me? 😀

        So many many thoughts, even without experience with this phone in real use…Are you wizards with magic ball ? 🙂

    The same case and battery, but with SD801 and native miui/flyme/cyanogen/coloros and I would get one.

      no you would not. (my guess). then again do people owning a double sim-card phone really have a bunch of phone laying around? i mean maybe andy or the staff at these tech web-pages but unless you make a collection out of them i see no point in having more than one.

        I don’t see the point of having more than one either, that’s why I would sell the old one.

          With SD801 this phone didn`t cost 159$ The price would be much higher…

            I don’t think it costs that much more. Still ok if it would be +$50.

        I own a dual sim phone and I only use one sim card for it. In fact I regularly have 3 phones. One for personal use, one for business and one for when I travel. When I travel I don’t like to bring expensive phones with me in case I leave them in a hotel, it gets stolen or a variety of other things. My current stable is Meizu MX5 (personal), Jiayu S3 (Work) and Siswoo C55 (travel). I know plenty of people who have a set up similar to mine or just two (work and business).

    i like the phone just that it won’t be my daily driver and i wouldn’t do much with it just let
    it be my back up phone.

    The battery is 4780mah so that’s a boo-boo to start with.
