Review Bq Shark Rush 5541L

Bq Shark Rush 5541LToday we have a review of the BQ Shark Rush 5541L – a smartphone for outdoor enthusiasts.

Among the main features of the BQ 5541L are:

  • IP68 protected enclosure
  • Sporty look
  • Decent specifications

Overview and equipment BQ Shark Rush 5541L

First of all, we draw attention to the new design of the packaging made in yellow style, including the factory film indicating the differences in the model.

But in terms of picking the differences, we did not find:

  • Smartphone itself
  • Warranty Card
  • Instruction manual
  • 1.5 A charger
  • Micro USB Charging Cable

Ergonomics and appearance

Despite the stated dimensions of 159.4 * 75.4 * 11.75 mm, the smartphone does not seem thick, it lies perfectly in the hand and the structural strength is felt.

As I said, BQ Shark Rush belongs to the class of secure smartphones and has increased reliability. Like others, it is certified according to the IP68 standard, which provides protection against the ingress of sand, dust, and dirt into the smartphone. It also withstands immersion in water to a depth of 1 m, preferably not salty.

For this, the headphone jack was removed, and the USB Type-C connector was closed with a rubber plug.


For comfortable viewing of content, BQ Shark Rush has a 5.45 ″ IPS display with a resolution of HD + 1440×720 pixels with a good margin of brightness for sunny days.

If you think that the smartphone’s diagonal is small, then remember about its security – rather large frames on a rubberized case contribute to its safety during outdoor activities. And the larger the diagonal, the less comfortable it will be in your hand.


Protective phones can’t take the volume, but the quality is mediocre. The BQ 5541L received a loud but very high-quality speaker, and in the evening by the fire, it is quite possible to listen to your favorite music.

But if you like to listen to music through headphones – I advise you to stock up on Bluetooth headphones. There are no connectors for them, it’s like a kind of payment for security.


With a set of communications, everything is in order:

  • Wi-Fi b / g / n
  • Bluetooth 4.2
  • 4G LTE
  • GPS
  • Nfc

The lack of support for 5 GHz Wi-Fi looks a little strange in 2019 but works fine in the remaining bands. But the presence of NFC is the hallmark of the latest BQ smartphones.

GPS, as befits such a smartphone, works well and will help you get through the route without deviations.

BQ Shark Rush 5541L Camera

Often during a trip, I want to capture a beautiful moment or a picturesque place in my memory. To do this, Shark Rush has a dual camera with 13 and 0.3 MP modules for taking pictures and blurring the background.

On a clear day, great shots and beautiful close-ups are obtained. In the twilight, noises are manifested and software noise reduction fiercely fights them, while losing in detail. As a result, it’s not a camera phone, of course, but it’s not bad at handling photos.

The 8MP selfie camera performed pretty well. So you can take your good photos against the backdrop of nature if no one is at hand.

Operating system and filling BQ 5541L

Do not stint to establish a normal filling. They put in a budget, but very good eight-core Mediatek Helio P22 processor with a maximum frequency of 2 GHz. Video core – PowerVR GE8320 with a frequency of up to 650 MHz.

The amount of memory that is generally unheard of for BQ is 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory for data storage.

In benchmarks, the smartphone shows average indicators:

The smartphone works very quickly and smoothly, especially considering the installed current Android 9 Pie system.

Games run without problems, on average settings any, even the most demanding games go smoothly. During games, the smartphone does not overheat, like a stove.


Using the smartphone to the fullest, it will last for a day or two, because the 3900 mAh battery is installed inside. It was possible to install a battery and more, but then, probably, the smartphone would have turned out to be too thick and awkward. And so the wolves are fed and the sheep are safe.

In autonomy tests, BQ Shark Rush received the following results:

  • YouTube 100% brightness 720p – 12% per hour
  • Game mode – 17% per hour


If protected smartphones correspond to your lifestyle, then BQ Shark Rush will become a good life companion and will be able to fully fulfill all the functions assigned to it and will not fail in difficult conditions.

Excellent security, balanced and powerful filling, as well as the presence of an NFC module, distinguish the BQ And how do you feel about such weighty and large smartphones in armor?
