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.
A model that fits in your pocket: the BV5500 Pro 16 Go.A size of 5.5 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.There’s GPS on this phone.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.

In terms of autonomy, this phone is in the top of the battery ranking with an on-board power of 4400 mAH.Convenient when you’re travelling or simply away from the office.
Blackview did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
With a low reading comfort, the BV5500 Pro 16 Go is not designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1440.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
Blackview sought to improve the audio experience.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).A technology that ensures quality sound.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The right model to play with?
Smartphone games now require power.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
In the end, we found that the power of this BV5500 Pro 16 Go is below its competitors.The MediaTek MT6580P processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This model has 16 GB, which is low.Knowing that some users need more space, Blackview has provided a free space for an extension.
Several hours spent playing inevitably impacts the battery.This model is equipped with one of the best batteries of the moment.A power of 4400 mAh will give you all day to play.Add to that a nice design, this phone has all the qualities.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
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.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Generally speaking, Blackview has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 16 GB.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
