Best Rugged Smartphone in the 4900 Series of Entry-Level, Heavy-Duty Handsets


You have caught up with the buzz about heavy-duty mobile handsets and want to purchase one. But which one is the best rugged smartphone to match your needs at an affordable price? Let’s have a quick look at some of the bargain handsets in the Blackview range, offering you a few incredible purchase options.


Best budget ruggedised smartphone


If your handset recently broke because it was dropped or met with a splash of water, then you’ll need a replacement. You probably don’t want to pay too much as your pocket still hurts from the amount spent on the previous handset that couldn’t be fixed after all. So, you’re looking for an entry-level model. For this, have a look at the entry-level BV4900s 5.7-inch handset.


The price is hard to beat, even for a quality entry-level, ordinary smartphone. This handset comes with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage space. It is 4G enabled and is fitted with Android 11 Go, giving you the latest light mobile operating system, as well as full angle PPI/DPI 283 Glass Dragontrail. It is also a good starter handset for younger children, as it is tough enough to endure the inevitable drop that tends to happen more often with children.


One step up to a full economy handset – the best rugged smartphone in the entry-level range


Affordability should not mean compromising on quality. Blackview knows this and that’s why, for a small step up in price, you get the BV4900 4G NFC handset. This is one of the most popular handsets in the budget price range and with good reason.


Not only is it exceptionally attractive, but it is also as rugged as it gets with it being water-, drop-, and dust-proof. It comes with a huge 5580 mAh battery, 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM. The handset is fitted with Android 10, 4G enabled and has a 5,7-inch screen. It also boasts a quad-core processor for fast processing. With dual SIM capacity, you can have two numbers in one phone. It is fitted with an electronic compass, as well as support for BeiDou, GLONASS and GPS navigation.


With this handset, you won’t have to worry about getting lost. Of course, the NFC capability makes online and Google Play Store shopping easier, while the 5MP front and 8MP Sony® rear cameras make it a sheer pleasure to take photos. With an extra strong glass for its screen and a strong casing, this is a great handset to upgrade to from a regular handset.


Make a statement without breaking the bank with the best rugged smartphone in the 4900 series


Buy the ever-so-popular BV4900 Pro 4G NFC handset if you want all the bells and whistles of the more expensive outdoor handsets, but without having it take a huge chunk out of your pocket. This handset has the same features as the B4900 4G but features a 13MP Samsung® rear camera along with the 5MP front camera. It also supports Galileo for added navigation capacity. In addition, it features 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM.
