Well BlackBerry customers who need ultra secure phones are governments, corporations, lawyers, military and police, and fingerprint scanners have flaws that can be exploited. If bad guys, or the police wanted to access your phone, all they'd have to do is stick your finger on the scanner. Sophisticated attackers just need to lift your fingerprints and they can make a fake finger with your prints. Maybe when you're sleeping, your jealous spouse will take your finger and scan your phone to check up on you.
I hope blackberry continues to flourish and the first step to this progress begins now . A lot of people hoped the integration of blackberry and android . It's time for blackberry to rise up again .
This smartphone will create serious worries in companies like Apple and Samsung . Just one improvement still needed , a fingerprint sensor so that android pay gets into play. Rest all seems great . Good luck ahead .
Blackberry is blackberry nobody can come near its design and look.Hope they can compete with the android market never late atleast they realised requirement of change is required in this fast moving world.

i don't know but blackberry says it's lcd not amoled :/ some people says it's amoled .. it'd be better if it's lcd because i prefer lcd rather than amoled cause amoled is oversaturated unreal colour

criticjustin, 30 Oct 2015I'm really sorry that we are start to loose BB os.. :'(in no case blackberry is going to give up the Blackberry 10 OS. two more new devices of BB 10 will be release earlier next year.
BrillianT! Wat an awesome phone! great work blackberry~ a real innovative blend of stunning design and technology... And welcome to the Android.. thanks, u take a move to adapt with changing technology by not repeating the same mistake that Nokia did ...
But one thing surprises me..they are marketing it it as security and privacy device..then why no fingerprint sensor!!
the phone is $700 USD or 45000INR tooo costly, but with the release of this phone , bb os phones will get updates in future?
actually I look for android with physical keyboard with good spec (mid or mid high is ok) and high battery capacity. for physical keyboard blackberry answered it, and high capacity battery lenovo answered it. so difficult decision.
I'm wondering if it would have on-screen keyboard aside from the physical qwerty for landscape typing.
