Blackview BV8800 Review

In 2021, Blackview introduced the protected Blackview BV8800 smartphone. This model comes with a well-protected case and a powerful battery. It is equipped with a large IPS display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. We must add that the protection of the phone is according to the international standard MIL-STD-810H, which speaks volumes about its strength and reliability.


One of the first things that will impress you about the Blackview BV8800 is that it has a quadruple main camera on its rear panel. It is positioned in the center of the upper third. It looks spectacular and immediately provokes you to take an interest in its features. Before you do, take a look at the design of the Blackview BV8800. It is typical of a security phone. It has well-beveled edges and safety elements so that it can survive in harsher conditions.

On the front side, the camera is positioned in a drop-shaped slot. It delicately stands at its top. The screen impresses with its size and promises to spend a pleasant time with the device in hand.

You can't expect thin frames from the Blackview BV8800. Having them will immediately "disarm" it, taking it out of the category of secure smartphones. That's why the company has provided it with reasonably thick frames around the screen.

As for the colors - there are three. You can choose between black, green and orange. In terms of weight, we must emphasize that it is solid - a little over 350 grams. It is worth adding that the device is protected according to the MIL-STD-810H standard and also received protection against water and dust according to two standards IP68 and IP69K. You'll find the fingerprint scanner side-mounted and built into the start button.


Blackview BV8800 has a beautiful 6.58-inch IPS screen with an aspect ratio of 18: 9. It has received support for FHD + resolution and 90 Hz refresh rate. You can count on a smooth picture.

The display occupies 85% of the front panel of the smartphone, which suggests that it has a modern look. Its brightness - a maximum of 480 nits, is enough to handle the device comfortably on a sunny day.


This Blackview model is based on an 8-core Helio P25 chipset, 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage. Available only in this modification. If necessary, you can increase the storage using a memory card. The Mali-G57 video chip is responsible for the graphics. For optimal performance and reliability, the Blackview BV8800 is equipped with a liquid cooling system with a copper tube. In this way, critical heating of the appliance is excluded.

The smartphone comes with Android 11 operating system and Doke 3.0 interface.


The rear camera of the Blackview BV8800 is quadruple and consists of a main 50-megapixel sensor

Samsung JN1. It is complemented by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor and two 2 MP sensors. The latter are responsible for macro photography and the bokeh effect. For better image quality, the company has provided a dual LED flash

The front camera is single but 16 megapixel. With it and the rear camera you can shoot videos with a maximum resolution of 1080 pixels.

In the camera menu you will find a special mode for night photos Night Mode 2.0. With it, even with a minimal light source, you have every chance to take good shots.

Autonomous work

For this purpose, under the body of the smartphone is a battery with a capacity of 8380 mAh. This charge is enough to last the device for about 30 days in standby mode and up to 34 hours of continuous music listening. If you embark on games, you will need to recharge your Blackview BV8800 after 10 hours.

The manufacturer states that recharging this impressive capacity requires only 1.5 hours. There is also a function for fast wireless charging with a power of 33W, as well as recharging.

With the powerful charger you can recover 31% of the battery in half an hour.

Interesting features and characteristics

The other purpose of the night camera is to give you a sense of security. Human eyes do not do well in the dark, but with the Blackview BV8800 this shortcoming is compensated.

The device can also be used under water. A special regime is provided for this purpose.

The MIL-STD-810H protection standard is the latest version of the MIL-STD-810, which includes a number of improvements. With it, the Blackview BV8800 can survive rain, dust, vibration, high or low temperatures, high humidity, high altitudes and immersion in water. Its strong hull is invincible, even when falling from a height of 1.5 meters. Water tests show that the Blackview BV8800 can be submerged to a depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. Then it will work again!

In the phone menu you will find a bunch of interesting features - compass, noise level measurement, pedometer, altitude measurement, magnifier, flashlight, etc.
