by Linus 6

Blackview has produced quite a few very cheap phones but the A5 model seems like the cheapest one on the market. You can get it for less than $45 and I will leave a link down below. This is Linus, learn more in the full review.

The phone ships with all the usual stuff and some extras include a pair of earphones and a soft TPU case.

Blackview A5 Review: SPECS and PERFORMANCE

Let’s start by the taking a look what kind of spec-sheet you are getting for such a low price. The Blackview A5 ships with a quad-core MTK6580 chip with the clock speeds of 1.3GHz, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage.

The gaming performance is actually not bad. Of course, the graphics don’t look spectacular but I didn’t have any lag or major hiccups when I played Asphalt 8 on the lowest graphics.

Blackview A5 Review: DESIGN, FEATURES, BATTERY LIFE

The phone is very well built considering its price. One of the highlights is a textured plastic back cover, which really looks nice.

You can easily remove the backplate and underneath it you will find a removable 2000mAh battery, two SIM card slots and the microSD card slot.

Speaking of the battery, it should give a full day of moderate use. I could get around 4 hours of screen-on time, which is a decent result.

We have a 5MP camera but you should not expect any stellar results from it as this is a $45 phone after all.

Still, you may get some okay looking images that can be shared on social media if you take pictures in good lighting conditions.

The loudspeaker is actually pretty good and it is probably the best we’ve heard on any phone this cheap.

The 4.5” display does not even sport an HD resolution. Still, it is pretty good panel for the price of the phone.

On the front we have a 2MP shooter, which is not really impressive but you may get an okay looking selfie in good lighting.

A few shortcomings would be that the capacitive buttons are not backlit and there is no LED notification light.

Blackview A5 Review: UI

We have a near-stock looking Android 6.0 out of the box and the performance of it is great.

Some notable features of the UI include a few gesture controls, which actually work fine.

What is the most important to us is that the user interface is smooth and fast. Sure, the phone will not be a multi-tasking machine but it is good for basic daily tasks.

Blackview A5 Review: CONNECTIVITY

We didn’t have any major connectivity issues. The GPS lock speeds are good but the accuracy could be slightly better.

Blackview A5 Review: CONCLUSIONS

Blackview A5 is one of the cheapest phones you can buy and it is a great basic smartphone for the price.

We love the fact that it is well built, it is compact, it has tactile buttons and you can easily manage the phone in one hand.

Also, you are getting processing power that is enough for daily tasks and Android 6.0 is running smoothly. You can even play some 3D games on the phone but keep in mind that the display does not even have HD resolution.

In general, Blackview A5 is a low-end device but if you consider a price of just around $40, it is one of the best options currently available on the market.
