Blackview BV5800 waterproof test
The BV5800 has lived up to its name by being fully waterproof(I have even been swimming in the sea while the phone was in my pocket)Not even a small amount of water has found its way in to the handset.
The phones speaker does sound like you have killed it once your out of the water but a wash out under the tap shake it and let it dry and all is good again (Panic over)
Games and UI
The BV5800 has played both beach buggy blitz and asphalt 8 with ease (A little slow on the loading time but other than that both worked fine)
The UI of the phone is the standard Android 8 with no crap installed, runs very well smooth and not too slow.
