Blackview BV series is something like a staple in the chinese rugged phone market and their tri-proof phones are surely among the most popular outdoor companions. But with the latest Blackview BV4000 piece they are trying to go for the entry level rugged phone, which is not a common cathegory whatsoever. Is it worth it ?
For the price i would quite say so, because the phone is selling for $79.99 and most of the outdoor users don’t value high end specs anyway. So if you are on a tight budget and in the need of a rugged tri-proof phone with IP68 certification this could be quite easily the perfect choice.
Yes it’s coming with really budget specs including MT6580A processor, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of internal storage, but on the other hand sports quite sturdy good looking build quality, 3680 mAh battery, 4.7-inch HD screen, dual rear cameras and Android 7.0 as the OS. And they will be also releasing 2 GB RAM + 16 GB ROM edition quite soon too.
So if $80 mark is just the right one for you and your next rugged phone then you can give the Blackview BV4000 another look and eventually get it on Aliexpress, either international, spanish or russian language mutation.
