  • Excellent Rugged Phone for the Money

    The Blackview BV9500 gives you capable middle of the range performance in a rugged form factor and a battery that can go for days. If you do no battery saving at all, it will last for 2 to 3 days. If you start turning on battery saving features, you can go to 4 to 5 days. The processing power and graphics abilities are middle of the road. It is fine to watch video or take a video but not your best choice for a gaming phone. Network coverage is excellent.

    • Very durable rugged phone
    • Good screen and video playback
    • Battery life for days
    • Handles all software well except demanding games
    • Very reliable, no mechanical or software issues
    • Heavy and thick
    • Fast charging does not always work
    • Charger send with phone is slow, Buy your own.

  • A real TANK!

    It seems to be way too big and bulky, but because of the "rounded" (chopped?) edges it's quite comfortable to keep it in your side pockets.

    Is it heavy? Yes, of course, it has a REAL 10.000 mAh battery, which has its own dimensions and weight.

    I used it for several hours (like 8+) while migrating from my LG V20, and it still has 73% battery left (it came charged to 99%, thanks for that, Blackview!).

    I can only recommend this phone, it's a lot better in real life than you would think!

    • Enormous battery
    • Sturdy, waterproof
    • Has quality materials
    • The screen is bright enough
    • The speakers' quality is great
    • It has UFS 2.1 storage
    • The fingerprint reader's placement is awkward
    • The rear secondary camera is only a gimmick
    • The touch panel is sometimes irresponsive
    • There are still bugs in the FW/SW
    • It restarts the launcher from time to time

    Very mixed opinion even if I appreciate a lot of its qualities

    Strengths: autonomy, fluidity, simplicity, the possibility of having two Sims plus a memory card, solidity, the Digital fingerprint reader Weaknesses: the GPS picks up and very inaccurate, the fast charge which does not done more for a year, sav to absent subscribers, the weight when you call (which makes me say that 360 g is the limit not to exceed), no update available, poor quality of photos with areas on the sides I have already changed the battery, a tricky operation but relatively simple to perform

    Cell phone that attracts a lot of people's attention, everyone asks me about it. I have had it for two years and it came with a defect in the speaker, I broke the screen a year later and bought the entire casing (screen with frame, metal sides, and the back with a new speaker) and it cost me 1400 pesos mx, with everything and shipping. The battery is super durable, it lasted up to 4 days without having to charge it, it is heavy and it is something that I like, it gives me security in the grip of one hand. If you fall it breaks the floor. The camera is terrible, it does not focus well, the system screenshots are not taken well. I am very satisfied due to my daily activities, no cell phone lasted even two months and this one lasted me 2 years.

    Horrible / no technical service. Manufacturing defects

    I have had this phone for about two and a half years. After six months, it took me more than three months to have the screen that was defective from the factory replaced, and it never worked properly again. The mic, speaker, or camera don't work well either. To talk on the phone I must use the headset, or it doesn't work. Although it continues to function after being bumped, the casing is dented. At first yes, but over time, the camera does not focus correctly, and all photos are blurry. Today, literally, a screw has fallen off during a call, .... I do not recommend it, especially after buying it from the official Spanish supplier, and having a slow, bad technical service with no ability to resolve incidents.

    Disappointing mobile or I just got a faulty original one?

    Hello! I would like to know if there have been any adverse experiences with this mobile. Or I just got a faulty and / or NOT brand new one. Of all the points that I am going to comment on, I want to say that I noticed much later when I started comparing and consulting opinion and benchmark sites because I noticed that something was not going well with the mvl. The battery always lasted less than 11 hours. The mobile restarts only every 3 or 4 days. Sometimes the interface disconnects by itself and countless lines of code IN CHINESE start running from bottom to top. A friend told me that it was possibly hacked. When I decided to change the battery because I thought it was faulty, I found that 4 of the torsk lag screws barely had a notch ... they were almost burst ... as if the mobile was NOT new. I bought it for my hiking trips and it turns out that I have to carry a 30,000 milliamp powerbank with me. If I find out, I buy a Caterpillar, even if it's more expensive. I will appreciate any com

    I bought this phone after searching a lot and bought it, watching videos of its resistance. The Camera takes a long time to focus (the worst), the fatal gps in the car or use it deviates you every two by three and the coverage is very poor in many places and does not have. The speaker is very powerful but after a while it started to distort. It is resistant, it can be immersed without problem. One day it fell from 50cm or so and the screen was not visible, I hit it again and it came back. It happened several times until one day after a fall from the height of a chair it went out and began to heat up. I still have it under warranty, it doesn't even have a year. I do not recommend buying it even if you see it as super resistant. The only good thing is the frame it brings, from the fatal rest. I hope it helps you.

    The only thing that meets is the battery. I dropped down from parking my car (60 cm. Approximately) and the metal frame was damaged, it was marked. He subsequently fell from the cell phone holder inside my car and fell into a metal thermos (thermal) and damaged the frame again. There is an update that is supposedly already loaded in the system and cannot be installed. Twice half of the screen (the top half) has not responded, only until it restarts. In one day I have been restarted only up to 4 times. I restored it to factory settings, as it was recommended by the seller and I am not left. IT IS A TRUE ASCO THIS PHONE !!! I AM REALLY FURIOUS WITH THE BRAND

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
