The BV5500 Pro 16 Go, the right choice for surfing the internet?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
BV5500 Pro 16 Go’s really small.A modest 5.5-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Even less good for watching a movie.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.You know where you stand.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
Considered as a gadget by some, it does not manage packages or multiple operators.There is only one SIM card slot here.With a national package, you will be forced abroad to take out your card and put another local one in its place.
Detail moreover, this BV5500 Pro 16 Go is sold with the glass of the reinforced screen.Insurance against accidents such as shocks or scratches.Rare are the devices that have never fallen down.
What’s more, this mobile phone has one of the most powerful batteries on the market, with 4400 mAH.That means less stress when you’re on the go, or in the middle of an online game.
Blackview did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
We would have liked the BV5500 Pro 16 Go to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s one of the worst in the business.An 5.5-inch screen with overly vivid colors.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1440.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
On the audio side, Blackview wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Blackview’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Smartphone games now require power.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Our tests put this BV5500 Pro 16 Go at the bottom of the list in terms of power.Its MediaTek MT6580P processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.This phone only defaults to 16 GB; that’s probably fair.But some of you will need more; that’s why Blackview has left a free slot for a memory card.
Several hours spent playing inevitably impacts the battery.Here you have the best in the market.A power of 4400 mAh will give you all day to play.Add to this a quality design and aesthetics that will make this smartphone a beautiful object.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.That’s gonna make it harder to read.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Analysis of Audio and Video functions
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Blackview is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
And last point about the image options, there is no HDR in this model.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 16 GB.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
The BV5500 Pro 16 Go in conclusion
The design of this BV5500 Pro 16 Go is well done and corresponds to consumer expectations.This model is average, and will meet most of your needs.In conclusion, it is a good product.
