Blackview has just released a new video on YouTube, and in it, the company is showing off its BV9000 rugged smartphone. The purpose of this video is to show you how durable the Blackview BV9000 is, and in it, you will see the phone dropped in various ways, and even kicked. The first test that the company performed in this video is a regular drop onto the ice, after which two people in the video actually kicked the phone around for a bit. The second drop test also includes ice, but this time around the phone was first thrown in the air, and then dropped onto the ice. In both instances, the Blackview BV9000 continued to work without a problem.
The third test is quite interesting, as it shows off a person standing on two Blackview BV9000 smartphones… in ice skates. Later in the video, you will be able to see some tests that show off Blackview BV9000's drop onto concrete, and other types of surfaces, and these are not mild drops, by the way, well, at least most of them aren't. As a final test, the company decided to throw the phone onto some steps and see if it will survive, needless to say, it did, without a problem.
