Having had quite some time to be with this smart device and using it, it took me a while to get the hang of it, but at the end it proved effective and very strong i must add. It is important to know that, The smartphone sensors measure physical quantities and transmit them to the application processor.
The phone’s accelerometer is a built-in electronic component that measures tilt and motion.
A fingerprint sensor is one of the easiest and most secure ways to protect your smartphone.
The proximity sensor detects when a user is holding the phone near their face during a call and turns off the display to prevent keypad presses and battery consumption from the display.
The BV9900 has Dual SIM capability, which means that you can insert two different SIM cards and use them both from one phone. With pure real features and specifications i think this is the phone for you.
Thank you for reading through.
