Blackview BV5000 Also Gets You 5000mAh Battery for Under Php8k

Is it just me or the 5000mAh battery packs in smartphones are now becoming a trend? Aside from the newly-released Asus Zenfone Max there is also another electronics company that just released their own take on phones-with-massive-battery offerings. The Blackview BV5000 is now in the Philippines and it's challenging (I think) the Zenfone Max in the big battery and price category.

In addition to offering a hefty 5000mAh battery, the Blackview BV5000 also has a lot of head-turning specs and features for a very very affordable price.

On the front side there is a 5-inch HD IPS display with 2.5D Glass, that's 1280x720p resolution. Powering this device is the 64-bit MediaTek MT6735P 1.0GHz quad-core processor. The RAM is also a bit generous here coming in at 2GB, that means more room for more apps running at the same time. And then for storage, 16GB space is available right out of the box and can be expanded via microSD card up to 32GB.

Now for the camera, it's a bit confusing here as many tech  blogs are saying it's 8MP however some and including the Blackview Philippines Facebook page says it's 13MP for the rear while the front one is at 5MP. If it's 13MP, which is going to be nice, we still have to check how it is going to perform in real world and it still has to face Zenfone Zoom's Laser Autofocus and PixelMaster functionality.  A lot of Pinoy smartphone users nowadays are pretty particular in camera quality of every new phone.

Android 5.1 Lollipop runs this Blackview BV5000 (vs Zenfone Zoom's Android 5.0 OS) right out of the box which is a pretty nice OS. Dual-SIM and the usual local connectivity features are also available on BV5000 like WiFi, Buetooth, GPS and network support up to 4G LTE.

Now let's talk about the Blackview BV5000's additional offering that is rarely seen on other mainstream smartphones.

The smartphone's massive battery promises users to last up to 220 hours of standby time, 7 hours of call time and a full charging time of just 3.5 hours. According to Blackview's official website this phone sports what they call "Reverse Charging", this simply means it can double as a powerbank charge other phones via its microUSB port (the same feature on Zenfone Zoom).

Furthermore, the Blackview BV5000 is waterproof, dustproof and shockproof. We just don't know yet its IP Certification in terms of those proof claims. See more specs below.

And if there is/are things I don't like about this device, that would be how thick and heavy this phone is. The BV5000 is as thick as 13.3mm (vs Zenfone Zoom's 10.6mm) and has heavy as 229 grams (vs Zenfone Zoom's 202 grams). Hopefully it is not that awkward to hold and use this handset in real life.

Blackview Philippines said the BV5000 smartphone is now available in the country for just Php7,999 (vs Zenfone Max's Php8,495).
