  1. My thoughts, with respect to the Blackview BV9500 Pro is its good value for the money but I may be a bit premature since I have made the commitment to purchase and I haven’t had the opportunity to evaluate it. There may be software bugs or shortfalls with the firmware, some features may not work without losing other features. However, I’m more than willing to dive in with both feet simply because I think Blackview is a company that is willing to stand behind their products even if it takes a bit longer to get things sorted out. In closing, Blackview appears to have a lot of models on the back burner which may slow down the production and distribution of their front line products. Patience is required.
