Blackview BV7000 First Impressions
Tough and durable are only some of the words that describe the Blackview BV700 when you first hold it in your hand. With its rugged, tactical design and very grippy texture at the back. The Blackview BV7000 feels solid as a rock.
The Blackview BV7000 has a 5-inch Full HD IPS display and though it’s clear and the colors are vibrant, the screen-to-body ratio could be better.
However, it does get a Full HD display that has a pixel density of around 440ppi, as well as a 5MP front camera.
The BV7000 uses rubber flaps to cover the ports, which might not be too reliable in the long run. Having said that, the fitment on the rubber flaps are super tight and it’s actually hard to open at times. This is good because the BV7000 is a waterproof (IP68) phone. At the top side of the phone, covered by a rubber flap, is the 3.5mm audio jack.
At the left side of the phone covered by another rubber flap is the hybrid SIM tray.
On the other side of the phone are the volume controls, power button, and a dedicated camera button.
At the back, you will find the 8MP rear camera, the LED flash and the fingerprint scanner surrounded by thick aluminum. Below that is the Blackview logo and the speakers.
On the bottom of the phone covered with yet another rubber flap is the USB Type C charging port and the microphone. It also comes with a USB Type-C to USB Type-A adapter which is always convenient.
The BV7000 feels like its made for those who live active lifestyles, mostly due to it being hefty and durable.
