Last week I got the smartphone Blackview BV9000Pro and would like to share my first impression with you. Overall, I like the new outdoor smartphone even better than its predecessors (BV8000Pro, BV7000Pro and BV6000).
– It comes with Android 7.1.1
– The Android security patches are up to date
– Nice, big screen with good color rendering
– The double camera on the back allows a simple switching between different sharp levels in the picture
– Finally, an adapter is included with which every normal headset and headset will work with the device
– The included headphones have a much better quality than before
– The firmware is much more thoughtful than its predecessors
– For example, there is now a real free allocation of the Smart Keys in three levels
– Unlike the BV8000Pro, this model has gaskets again. If they are closed you can be sure that the use in the pool is not a problem.
– To change the SIM card, the device must not be screwed on
– The outdoor phone is not unimportant: GPS fix super fast and reliable.
What bothered me a little:
– There are only 2 slots for SIM cards and Micro-SD. At the same time only one SIM + SD or two SIMs works.
– Like the BV8000Pro, this model has again relatively “sharp corners”
– The first time I got a warning about an expired Google certification. After the first firmware update (Over the Air via WLAN) this problem was solved.
– There is no jack connection anymore. Listening to music is only possible via loudspeakers, Bluetooth or the enclosed USB C-to-Jack adapter. As a result, you can not charge the smartphone and listen to music via headphones without buying another adapter at the same time.
– The annoying sound during the startup animation is now felt to be twice as loud. If one has set a password for the Android start both appear even twice. the sound can only be avoided by connecting adapter + headphones. Otherwise, the whole company automatically knows that the phone is restarting.
– There is no longer any air pressure sensor. I never needed it, but there are certainly people who are interested in buying it.
– Still “only” support for tracking via GPS and Glonass satellites. – Galileo and Beidou can not be used although the chipset supposedly supports it.
– Unfortunately, there are no replacement seals on this model.
