After doing lots of durability tests, I am ready to share my experience with today’s rugged smartphone review. And it’s the newly introduced Blackview BV5900.
Blackview is a prominent smartphone company that always tried to bring out rugged smartphones that are protective against drop-down damages and come with shock absorption, dust, and waterproof, battery temperature support. And for sure, that is a great value for workers like who are dealing with working in unpredictable circumstances.
Its new addition to the line, the Blackview BV5900, is no different. In this Blackview BV5900 review, we will find out how this rugged smartphone can provide you a great value out of the price and specifications.
Design and Durability
The prime aspect of the Blackview BV900 is it’s all in all shock, water and dustproof. It is covered with industry-leading rugged rubber, which makes it more stringent than any of Blackview’s previous lines. Besides, its silicone liner and multiple rigid layers added an extra value when it comes to absorbing shock.
On the contrary, the MIL-STD-810G tested model correspondingly got certification from IP68 and IP69K that ensures its 1.5m deep waterproof support. So, there is no need to concern while you are working in a massive humid environment or even when it dropped in water.
Unlike other boring looking rugged phones, the BV5900 comes with a futuristic look that inspired by science-fictional space capsule design. It’s offered in three smart color variants – orange, army green, and black.
All in all, it’s the perfect mate for the people who love mountain biking, fishing, surfing, or any kind of water or adventure sports. And if you are professional in construction lines or firefighting kind of jobs, it is the best rugged phone that you should buy, not because of only its super durability but also for its premium military look.
Dear fellow gamers, I know it looks a bit like Asus ROG or Nubia Red Magicseries, but it’s going to disappoint when it comes to gaming since it is mainly built for diverse and hardcore professionals.
Although with the 3 gigabytes of RAM, you can play decent games. Nonetheless, to boost up your other app performances, it has MT67961 Quad-Core 2.0 GHz processor. Also, there are 32 GB RAM and expandable memory support up to 128 GB to store a large number of photos and videos.
I didn’t found its performance like lightning speed that the manufacturer tells on advertising, but the inclusive performance of multitasking was excellent.

Added artificial intelligence will help to improve your experience with the specs like the battery, brightness, app actions, intuitive navigation and etc. For better understanding, take a look at our different performance tests.

Screen and Display
With high-quality full-screen Corning Gorilla Glass 3, the display section proved itself undefeatable. The 5.7 inch HD AMOLED display gives you fabulous visual experience when watching videos or just hovering on Youtube. In addition, you can enjoy up to 720p screen resolution. It’s tough, it’s clear.
While talking about the BV5900 camera, it has 13 megapixels IMX214 main rear camera to click snaps like a professional photographer. There is a 0.3-megapixel sub camera as well, to automatically adjust the field depth.
Another 5-megapixel camera is there to take selfies on a hangout with friends on Snap chat. I will not say it’s a great one but not that much good. But the core aspect of the BV5900 camera is you can shoot your photos underwater. It got your back, huh?
Battery specification of Blacview BV5900 is another trait that every smartphone user is dreaming of having on the regular smartphone. With its 5580 mAh massive power storage capacity, it will work adequately till you fall asleep.
For a standby situation, it will make the phone alive around 600 hours. While you are gaming, it will stand for 12 hours.
Furthermore, the BV5900 will support 23 hours of concurrent Talk time. So, no more low battery anxiety and have fun the whole day.
Here, what’s cool is its Type-C port, which can be connected with any device. The charging time is 2 hours when supporting a load of 5V/2A.
Blackview BV5900 braced with 4G Phablet and included with dual sim slots for Nano sim. Without that, the bands are 2G (850/1900), 3G (B1/BB) and more specifically, 4G (B1/B3/B7/B8/B20).
It has AI face access smarter unlock feature can scan around 1,024 facial dimensions, which increase the accuracy. Besides, the biological facial features make it much easier to work the unlocking faster.
Currently, smartphone manufacturers are trying different positioning of the fingerprint sensor to make it more user-friendly. Maybe, Blackview is also following the route. That’s why they have added a side-set fingerprint sensor that is super-fast and unlocks within 0.1 seconds. I found it weird because fingers are a little bigger than regular people. Anyway, let me know about your experience.
Another fantastic feature of the BV5900 is the wireless NFC. It allows you to use the phone to pay your bills without any bank cards. The revolutionize feature also supports Google Pay payment. So, online purchasing will become easier besides digital transactions.
