Blackview R6 can be a contender for the purchase if the budget for the new smartphone is 120-140 dollars. In addition to accessibility, this unit is also interesting in that it offers a good arsenal of equipment, such as 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, and a fingerprint scanner.
Armed with good intentions, the company has awarded R6 display with a diagonal of 5.5 inches, covered with a protective glass 2.5D. The basis of the housing is a metal frame with glittering facets along the perimeter.
Metal lock/power button and volume rather precisely planted in the building, but the plastic dividers and bottom connector garniture received less than accurate.
Below the display is placed touch the “Menu” button, “Home” and “Back”. Backlight button has not got that kind of upset because at first, they are hard to find in the dark. At the top without any apparent systematic located front camera, speaker slot, light and proximity sensors, and even a small bonus from the manufacturer – the frontal flash.
Blackview R6 Review and Test
The back side of the plastic, although it mimics COMBINED system – metal plus plastic inserts. At the bottom of the cover is the main slot and it’s worth noting a rather loud speaker. But the back top was much more important elements: the logo of the company, a circular pad fingerprint, box camera and dual LED flash. I note that the diodes are the same color temperature, which does not help to improve the color reproduction of images with flash.
The smartphone cover is removable, under it except the fourteen screws fastening the smartphone, there are two slots for micro SIM and micro SD card. But the battery on the 3000 mAh battery is not quickly replaced.
The body reserves in general good impression. Blackview R6 for an affordable 5.5-inch model is quite confident in the hand.
Metal frame in combination with the rounded front panel glass design makes very attractive. But the design is not without its drawbacks – Playground fingerprint is placed too high, which is why not everyone will be comfortable to use. In addition, when the closure is necessary to put in place all the clips – otherwise it will be a creak in the hands.

Performance: Blackview R6
Smartphone Processor – MT6737T from MediaTek, a more advanced version of the MT6737 with an operating frequency A53 1.5 GHz. Graphics Accelerator – 600 MHz Mali-T720 MP2. RAM 3 GB of capacity and a built-in 32 GB memory – a very generous starter option, which is enough to install an impressive set of applications. Switching between multiple running applications without rebooting occurs. No obvious lag was not noticed interface. Results of synthetic benchmarks rather modest, but the most popular applications are well adapted to the hardware platform and operating without the lag. Played WOT blitz, however, at minimum settings with 27-30 FPS on the level, and Asphalt 8 on low graphics settings, the use of which makes the picture somewhat rough.
During the intense gaming, session smartphone is heated in the region of the upper part of the backside but does not exhibit appreciable sagging performance.
Operating system: Blackview R6
All applications are live on your desktop, and the icons are placed on a standard substrate. By holding your finger on additional menus called for the desktop themes, wallpapers, widgets and visual effects.
In the menu, you can find a weighty portion of the improvements. The most interesting of them – the smart gestures to lock the screen. The smartphone can double-tap to wake up, and in some applications can be accessed by drawing a predetermined gesture. Two additional features inherited and fingerprint – he is able to switch music tracks and take photos, however, the second will be convenient only if the pictures on the front camera.
The main smartphone camera has 13-megapixel sensor and optics with aperture F1.8.
Set the familiar settings, and any copyright chips were found.
Direct access to the camera is not even on the lock screen, which is quite unusual. The camera writes video only in HD. The quality of photos and videos is quite acceptable because the software squelch works quite correctly. The pictures almost completely smoothed digital noise artifacts, but it does not suffer the details.
The front camera quite copes with the problem in bright light, but at lower light levels, even built-in flash does not provide the necessary support.
The sound of smartphone headphones rather qualitative, yet felt not very wide frequency range and low supply volume. There are several add-ons to improve the sound in the menu. Blackview R6 received FM-radio – a pleasant trifle, which is less and less common among new devices. It should be noted that the radio does not work without a headset.
Autonomy: Blackview R6
Autonomy of R6 is not too high, the machine can hold out “in service” to the day, but it is only at a very low-key operation and display activity at the level of 4-5 hours. And if the smartphone will have a busy working day, it is best to have on hand a charger or paperback.
Conclusion: Blackview R6
Blackview R6 – a smartphone with a pretty aesthetic appearance. The manufacturer was able to avoid the oppressive feeling of the cheapness of the device, only thanks to two nuances – metal frame and glass with rounded edges. The advantages are also going to take rather bright work including in multitasking mode, and even the presence of a stable job and fingerprint. It will delight and good equipment: two films, Case and Headset. But there are also disadvantages. This and the presence of flaws in the assembly, and to “warm” the screen color reproduction, and a mediocre autonomy.
