  1. “One important point worth noting is that the battery is non-removable so
    just be a little cautious there!”

    ^^^^ This is wrong. The battery is indeed removable, but apart from that the rest of the review seems accurate. I’m very happy with mine.

  2. Very weak phone, never an outdoor product, the first smartphone who broke the first day in my pocket. The photo camera is poor in lower and higher light condition. Loose of money!
    Téléphone très fragile, certainement pas résistant aux chocs et à l’eau, l’écran s’est fendu le premier jours en poche, je n’ai jamais vu çà. De plus, le capteur photo est vraiment moyen moyen, surtout en basse lumière ou surexposition. Achat à éviter.

    1. This is correct, this phone is the biggest mistake I ever made, I was under the impression that this phone was “tough” well, it AIN’T, the screen shatters soooo easily it is unreal. must also be partially because this device is really heavy compared to all other smart phones, I used (a few I must say).

      It NOT a TOUGH PHONE AT ALL!

  3. Blackview BV5000 is good handset 🙂
    But i already have bought a Bluboo Maya at $69.99,The shipping of bluboo maya has already been started from 10th july,Now i am just waiting to get it in my hands.
