Blackview decided to challenge the undisputed durability king of all phones ever created, the Nokia 3310. The device which was launched back in 2000 is now 17 years old but is still considered a legend because of its ability to survive most drop tests. That said, how will it fair against the latest rugged and powerful smartphone to hit the market? We’re obviously talking about the Blackview BV8000 Pro, let’s watch the video!
As you can see in the video the Blackview BV8000 Pro has proven itself to be a worthy opponent and did win in the last hammer test, but we have to admit the Nokia 3310 did pretty good as well with its old plastic construction.
So yes, both phone passed the most realistic drop tests effortlessly but let’s be quite honest, you aren’t going to use a Nokia 3310 in 2017. This means the Blackview BV8000 Pro is probably your next best alternative as far as durability goes.
Durability isn’t the only factor the BV8000 Pro has running for it, the device is indeed also the most powerful rugged phone currently on the market. With a good performing and power efficient MediaTek Helio P25, a whopping 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.
The smartphone features a 5-inch Full HD display coated in Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with an 8MP Samsung 4H8 selfie shooter above it, meanwhile on the back we find a 16MP Samsung S5K3P3 rear camera with PDAF. It gets its juice from a 4180mAh battery which can be charged at 9V2A, runs the latest Android 7.0 Nougat and comes with GPS/GLONASS, NFC and OTG.
