The Textbook Definition of Impressive: The Rigid Phone Range from Blackview


Harsh environments and heavy usage are no match for a rigid phone from Blackview. Rugged phones are nothing new, but we saw an opportunity on the market to create a phone range that is both sleek in appearance and rugged in design. When you pull your rigid Blackview phone out of your pocket, the phone in your hand will look just like any other smartphone, albeit with a slightly thicker frame.


A Rigid Phone? Isn’t Rigidity a Bad Thing?


Rigidity being a negative word with which to describe a phone will depend how you use it. In the case of Blackview’s rugged phone range, it is a very good thing. We often refer to one category of our phones as “rugged”, “tough”, and “durable”. We use these terms to illustrate how tough these devices are and to describe exactly what they are used for. Using the word “rigid” is thus just another way for us to demonstrate the capabilities of our phones and to instantly tell you what kind of phone you are looking at.

Despite the negative connotations of the word “rigid”, we think that it is a very appropriate way to refer to our durable phone range. In fact, the attribute of rigidity is what makes our phones stand out. The rugged phones in our product portfolio are meant to be able to withstand a wide variety of adverse conditions. Getting your phone wet, accidentally letting it fall in sand or mud, or dropping it on a hard surface would usually result in the phone breaking, but only a truly rigid phone (in the sense of the dictionary definition of “not able to be bent”) will be able to withstand all of that.

Our Phones Should Be in The Dictionary Under “Tough”


When you’re as enthusiastic about rugged technology as we are, you are allowed to be a little tongue-in-cheek. We know exactly what our phones are capable of, and we are always proud to show off those capabilities.


Blackview’s range of rugged devices can handle any conditions and will be able to handle anything you throw at them. More than that, our phones are well-priced, especially when you compare them to other similar devices on the market.
