Blackview BV8000 Pro Review

Overview

Blackview has definitely become synonymous to reliable rugged smartphones. Its BV series includes a total of nine devices and the tenth - Blackview BV9000 Pro - is in the works. It is with the BV6000, however, that the brand has become more widely known and it has stabilized its position with the BV7000 Pro, which performed better than expected, and logically, the Blackview BV8000 Pro has gained lots of interest. The device competes directly with the Ulefone Armor 2 and other rugged smartphones with similar specifications. It currently retails for around USD 240 and on paper, it sounds like a great deal. So let's go through our usual review routine and check whether this model lives up to expectations.
