  • 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.

    Positives
    • 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
    Negatives
    • 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!

    Positives
    • Enormous battery
    • Sturdy, waterproof
    • Has quality materials
    • The screen is bright enough
    • The speakers' quality is great
    • It has UFS 2.1 storage
    Negatives
    • 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

    Disappointed

    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.

    Lousy

    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

    Very useful in the work I have.

    It takes 24 hours to charge 100 percent. I got a disappointment when loading. I thought it was the charger but by the comments the phone is like that. I got a 2.1A Samsung charger with that charge in 8 hours. But it is still a long time.

    signal reception is missing

    It's the phone that everyone would like ... indestructible and with a battery that lasts full days. Unfortunately it almost never takes ... I was convinced that it was the sim (a little dated) to give me problems, but a few days ago I took advantage of a promotion and I changed telephone operator (consequently the sim is now new and last generation). Result: worse than before. the phone is always in "No Service", when it takes, the quality of phone calls is poor and the line often falls. I don't know what to do anymore ... I'm sorry to change phone, but I didn't find any suggestions to improve the reception. If someone can recommend a solution to me, I would be happy

    Regular

    Location does not work well, camera focus does not work well (only focuses well once per photo), but the photos do not look like 16mp. I have had a xiaomi of 16 mp and a world of difference of photos. something brings bad that makes the location is not correct because it moves a lot even the tools that are brought as the level or the plumb move even if the phone is motionless about something, the truth in my work only serves me because it is resistant to the falls

    The best battery I have had with a very high shock resistance!

    It has Android 8.1 slightly modified but the options I have are enough. A very heavy phone due to the huge battery. I do not think the camera is remarkable but it's not bad. Day of the day works excellent I never get stuck or restart

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.
