Blackview is likely one of the extra lively rugged smartphone distributors and its newest mannequin, the BL6000 Professional, is the third 5G rugged smartphone that we have now examined to this point after the Ulefone Armor 10 and the Oukitel WP10. Did we hold the very best for final? Possibly. One factor that’s sure is that Blackview delivered one thing which aspires to be totally different from its rivals on numerous factors.

Value and availability

The Blackview BL6000 Professional prices $399.99 at AliExpress on the time of writing, a 32% low cost off its official advised retail value of $599.99. There could also be extra reductions courtesy of AliExpress’s barely puzzling allocation algorithm.

Blackview has recycled the design of the BV9900 Professional with some slight modifications. The producer deserted the commercial look of its rivals, opting as an alternative for extra subdued, eye pleasing strains in comparison with its quick rivals. So no massive screws, yellow borders and big logos; as an alternative in our arms, one thing that doesn’t even appear to be a rugged smartphone and that’s clearly factor.

Beneath although, it’s the identical system; a steel body which ensures resistance to shock and protects the interior elements just like the cooling gel, triple graphite layering and copper pipes. As anticipated, it additionally comes with MIL-STD-810G, IP68 and IP69K certifications.

It’s certainly not a rival to its tremendous skinny non-rugged friends however at solely 166.7 x 81.3 x 12.8mm with a weight of simply over 270g, it’s much more compact and lighter than choices from Oukitel or Ulefone. That could be a strong optimistic benefit in our books.

Three digital camera sensors and a LED flash are positioned on the again whereas the selfie digital camera sensor is lodged in a punch gap on the entrance facia, a 6.36-inch FHD+ (that’s 1080 x 2300 pixels) IPS display with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 overlay and a few fairly good oleophobic coating that makes fingerprint marks far much less seemingly.

The Blackview BL6000 Professional that was shipped to us got here with the next {hardware}:

CPU: Dimensity 800

GPU: Arm Mali-G57


Storage: 256GB

Rear digital camera: 48MP, 10MP, 0.3MP

Entrance digital camera: 16MP

OS: Android 10

Battery: 5.28Ah

Blackview toed the road through the use of the identical processor that equips its two different rivals; the Mediatek Dimensity 800 is a midrange system-on-chip which delivers greater than sufficient firepower on this value vary. It’s complemented by 8GB of RAM (LPDDR4x) and 256GB onboard storage (the sooner UFS 2.1 kind relatively than eMMC). That’s twice the storage capability of its rivals, an important facet on condition that it doesn’t have a microSD card slot.

Elsewhere, it has 4 cameras together with a 48-megapixel Sony shooter being the headline sensor and a 16-megapixel Samsung entrance going through selfie. Its battery has a 5.28Ah capability, far smaller than, say, the 8Ah mannequin contained in the WP10 however a drop in capability is an appropriate compromise for a extra moveable gadget.

As anticipated, it helps Wi-Fi 5 in addition to Bluetooth 5, that are each pretty customary for smartphones on this value vary. Whereas there’s NFC, there’s no wi-fi charging, which is a little bit of a disappointment.

In use

As anticipated, it runs a inventory model of Android 10 and since it’s a Mediatek-based mannequin, has the identical bundled purposes you’d count on for those who’ve ever owned one Helio gadget for instance. Of specific curiosity is a bunch of apps that may carry out duties which can be typically sensor primarily based.

There’s additionally a gamer mode, an aged mode and a children mode. All three goal totally different age teams/audiences however fulfill the identical core necessities. Creating an setting that caters for the peculiarities of that group; e.g. capacity to decide on a specific set of apps.


That is how the Blackview BL6000 Professional carried out in our suite of benchmark checks:

PCMark (Work 2.0): 8224

Passmark: 8615

Passmark CPU: 23704

Androbench (sequential): 867 (sequential learn); 202 (sequential write)

Androbench (random): 190 (random learn); 178 (random write)

3DMark  Wild Life Vulkan: 1671

LinPack MFLOPS: 2105

Blackview claims that its IceMode expertise permits the BL6000 Professional to supply fundamental cellphone, messaging and digital camera options, at temperatures as little as -30℃ far decrease than different rivals. We weren’t capable of check that declare because the temperatures within the UK are barely balmy in the meanwhile.

As for the efficiency ranges, they’re about common for a tool primarily based on the Dimensity 800. We couldn’t get Geekbench to run and our LinPack check returned a good 2.1GFLOPS. Storage subsystem numbers had been very strong because of the UFS 2.1 expertise used which permits scores increased than what we’d get from a desktop-based SATA storage gadget.

So there’s completely no considerations in relation to actual life efficiency on the type of use instances you’d count on from a normal gadget. No, it isn’t a gaming powerhouse however sure, it ought to deal with the overwhelming majority of purposes on the market with ease.

Closing verdict

The BL6000 Professional is a superb all-rounder rugged smartphone particularly for subject staff and out-and-about employees which will wish to wash their telephones for additional safety. The power to run 5G is, in our opinion, a bonus on condition that 5G continues to be being rolled out globally and doesn’t profit from the type of quasi-universal protection that 4G or 3G advantages.

Blackview opted for a design that intentionally units it aside from the competitors. With that got here some design decisions just like the decrease battery capability and the smaller display measurement. You find yourself with a lighter and higher trying rugged smartphone which can matter for some.

Disgrace concerning the lack of a microSD card however with 256GB of onboard storage, it must be greater than sufficient. You’ll be able to all the time have a look at our checklist of finest cloud storage companies for some inspiration do you have to want some. 

Extra regarding although is the truth that there’s no wi-fi charging, which must be customary lately. Its quick predecessor, the BV9900 Professional, got here with a 10W one. It will be useful as a backup for the charging port which lacks a protecting flap.
