- Analysis by KJ David

A 283g-heavy , 16.5mm-thick rugged smartphone from Blackview, the BV9700 Pro banks on a waterproof, dust-tight, and shock-resistant housing that passes both IP68 and MIL-STD-810G rugged certifications.

Among its slight cons is the 2.1GHz-only top speed of its dual-cluster eight-core MediaTek Helio P70 processor, if only because a few of its outdoor-ready rivals run on engines that clock in at over 2.5GHz -- check out some of the best octa-core phones here. That being said, its 6GB LPDDR4X RAM sounds passable to us, at least coming from a phone with its kind of semi-high-end specs.

Still on its hardware pros and cons, we think it could have done better than 128GB of native memory , since a few tantamount models pack twice as much native storage. On the flip side, its 4380mAh battery , which is enabled for both wired fast-charging and Qi-standard wireless charging, sounds more than decent in our book.

Adding to this rugged phone's pros are a heart rate monitor as well as air quality and pressure sensors , slapping on some extra utility that could be difference-makers against other outdoor-ready smartphones on the market. Moreover, it comes with an external night vision camera with 2.9-micron pixels and a 6P lens, enabling users to capture photos or videos under poor lighting conditions without the need for any makeshift light source.

Speaking of cameras, it touts a respectable dual-lens main cam that's made up of 16- and 8-megapixel lenses, bringing to mind a few photography-driven contenders. It also offers a 16-megapixel selfie camera infused with AI Beauty.

As for its display, the Blackview BV9700 Pro touts a 5.84-inch 18:9 IPS interface with a 2280 x 1080 resolution, which just about lines it up with most other semi-high-end rugged smartphones listed here on Phonerated as of this technical review. Also on board is an NFC (Near Field Communication) adapter, 4G-LTE network connectivity, and the Android 9.0 Pie ecosystem.

All said, when it comes to pros and cons, the BV9700 Pro makes for a fitting mobile companion for outdoor adventurers and field personnel.
