As a pilot myself, I love the fact that this phone has a barometer sensor and it's NOT a huge screen sized phone, it helps me with flying apps and usefulness! I just wish it was a little bit thinner, less battery maybe 8000mah for next version, also I love the separated sd card slot so we don't need to sacrifice one of our 2 sims for space. Nowadays most people have 2 sims, one personal and one for work. Thanks for making this wonderful and good looking phone!Adriana
3days of heavy use without charge, not as big as had expected.. SolidAmazon Customer
What I really like about this phone is the battery life, it's about time there is a phone on the market that can last 2 days without charging.Andrew Winter
Review of the Blackview BV9500 Pro mobile phone.
The phone arrived in very good time and apart from an address mix-up was quite painless.
It came in the usual Amazon packaging which is always very good. Upon ripping open the shipping packaging (with my teeth) I was presented with a beautifully packaged phone - very stylish and for such a robust and rugged phone, was surprisingly elegant.
After removing the shrink wrapped I had the box ready to expose the phone. The box is surprisingly heavy, it feels like a kilo or there abouts.
In the box comes:
- The phone;
- An EU 2 pin charging plug;
- Comfortable looking ear buds;
- A USB cable – Note: this is not the micro USB connector – you need to use a type C connector – it’s bigger and flatter;
- A really neat little screwdriver that allows one to access the SIM compartment;
- The PTT radio antenna which is about 4cm;
- An OTG adaptor;
- An instruction booklet;
- An instruction booklet for the PTT;
- And finally a plastic screen protector.
All beautifully packed in the way we’ve come to expect brand new electronics [thanks Apple].
For me the 2 pin EU plug not a problem - you can use it on a UK socket by simply pushing a pen, or similar sharp object, into the earth hole to free the socket mechanism and stick the 2 EU plug in the top two holes.
One thing I really like from the very start is that the access hole for the USB port is not covered by a silly piece of plastic that you have to move every time you want to use it and that will inevitably fall of – ruining the waterproofing.
The plastic screen protector is a great inclusion as I always feel better when my screen is protected, although I put it on badly. That was my fault and anyway I like the bubble patterns, so there!
Inserting SIMs & Memory
To insert your SIM and any additional memory you need to use the supplied (still cool) screwdriver, take of the little back cover of the phone and put the
