I agree 100%. Too many models, too small differences... Customers of this type of phones (rugged) want to use their phones till the last drop of life in them, not to buy a new phone every one or two years. Blackview should hold 3 lines: budget (like max 2GB RAM and 16GB space, with cheap cpu and fewest features), mid (3 to 4 GB RAM and 32 to 64 GB space) and high (at least 6GB of RAM, at least 128GB space, high end cpu, all the features they can embed). And get them better and better. I cannot believe there is a phone on the market that (aside of not being rugged) has 6gb ram/128gb, 4G dual sim, a nice cpu (it's the other one), at least same quality screen, android 9, is in the first 20 on antutu, is a chinese brand and is cheaper than bv9500... Yes it has no barometer, it has no 10k (actually 9k) mAh battery (it's more like 4k), it has no spare programable button and no ptt button. But it has a good support for many custom ROMs (because it's still the same model for at least 2 years now and people bought it and found out it's a good phone from a hardware point of view and then they asked for custom roms and then the custom roms were developed for it, because it was affordable, had good specs and did not change it's hw specs after a year or less). Now, I understand you can't offer a "custom" rom only and you have to stick with Google's rules and stuff (otherwise you would struggle to survive in today's mobile market) but since you offer virtually no warranty on anything you make (like "ask your seller for warranty" <by the way, I never heard of this kind of policy till you, Let me tell you a thing: it does not matter where I bought a product made by you, it does not matter if I bought it new or second-hand, as long as it is not older than the two years warranty, YOU should honor the claims not the vendor, as long as the claim is valid >; "you can order this spare part to repair" or "look for the part on Aliexpress") then, at least, you could offer an alternative to official ROM for the customers that are intersted. And by "alternative" I don't mean a full working ROM but at least the necessary parts for developers to make those ROM's. We, your customers, will appreciate very much your cooperation. At least I will do. And I believe I speak for a good part of your recurring customers (those that tried your products at some point and came back for more).
Sorry for the long post, I just try to make Blackview aware of what we expect at the bare-bones level.
