Will you buy the Blackview BV2000 for $75? Full specs


blackview bv2000

We all know that Chinese phones are getting cheaper and better all the time, but do the Blackview BV2000 specs hit the mark?

Another sub $100 smartphone? Yup, Blackview have released the full hardware specifications of the BV2000 which we wrote about earlier in the week and online stores already have the handset up for just $74.99. So is it worth it?

Blackview have taken a good hard look at what Meizu have done with the 5-inch M2, and decided to give it a go themselves with the BV2000. They built their phone with a 5-inch HD display, a Mediatek MT6735 chipset and a couple of cheerful colours.

It’s a solid start but the specs don’t really stack up the further down the list we go. The BV2000 comes with only 1GB RAM, 8GB memory, WCDMA support, and 8 mega-pixel main camera. In comparison the Meizu M2 costs as little as $100 (if you shop around) and comes with a 13 mega-pixel sensor, 2GB RAM and LTE.

We applaud Blackview for taking up the sub $100 gauntlet but we feel that competition have raised the bar a little out of their reach. What do you guys think?

    Fort he price and specs it’s quiet good. A good phone if you need one before buying into better specs.

    i’d prefer a cheaper soc (mt6735) but 16gb ram.

    If someone is interested most likely price is important at the point so maybe it does make sense for some to go with the blacview. We migth be biased to the meizu for the spec’s ((i’m myself)) but in real world there people which can not make difference between SoC and Sock, will only care if the phones does 4G to do YouTube and Instagram and FB and that’s it.

      It looks a lot like Meizu M2 Note, doesn’t it?

      Somehow a fairly common mistake on here.

        They are very similar chips both A53 with Mali 720 GPUs. The only difference is the 53 is octacore and clocked higher. On paper the 53 is slightly faster but in actual usage the difference is very minor.

    Not if i can’t change the battery, i hate unibody designs on phones, this isn’t a car or CUV.. People should stop copying apple’s zombie crap.

      Unibody existed long before Apple. Personally I have never replaced a battery on a phone (had one replaced by Xiaomi, but they did it) and I find Unibody a lot more durable.

    1GB RAM, not acceptable, because your time will be spent killing ongoing tasks; 8GB storage, absolutely not acceptable; MTK6735, acceptable but not that sound. I’d rather pay another 30 US dollars to buy Ulefone Paris, which has more powerful MTK6753, 2GB, `16GB. And its 2.5D glass and metal frame look very elegant.

      Yep, 1GB is too small these days, 2GB is the baseline. Storage can be expanded with SD card. I myself is not into phones under 100 dollars.

      Ye.Even with 1G RAM, just for a low price, but then a waste of money for equipment.

    Android can run on 1gb but you will be limited to the very basics (Internet, music and movies). Ideally you need 2gb. Blackview is starting to make a global push, I see them popping up all across Asia. I used one for a few weeks and it wasn’t bad, wasn’t particularly good either.

    No one wants a phone with those kind of specs. That is 2013 technology.

    Blackview Zeta should be a better value, octacore and with replaceable batteries.
