I feel its still safer getting an ordinary android phone with vpn. Cos all they need is to get thru the blackberry authority n you r exposed. But for normal smartphones u can just keep changing vpn's until u get the most secured one. If im not wrong no vpn can block the authority(blackberry) from exposing u. Cos they r controlling it. Same goes for the iphone n blackphone..

I'll consider a BlackBerry phone secure when what is put on the phone, STAYS on the phone and only on the phone (ie. Google doesn't get a copy). The words "Android" and "Privacy" are mutually exclusive and BlackBerry shouldn't be promoting Android phones as being secure. From hackers, maybe yes. From Google, not a chance. Give me something like a Z10 with upgraded CPU/GPU etc.
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2016Yeah windows lol !!! only a few are left, soon Windows phones are going to be shut down.Not necessarily, for example there are markets in where Blackberry still sells (and sell quite well) phones powered by BB OS6 and BB OS7. There are users who are paying, besides standard subscription, tens or hundreds of euros per month for a BIS or BES subscription.
Hardware manufacturers refuse to use Windows because it is a commercial OS and Microsoft asks money for license. That and also the fact that Microsoft it's not giving too much change permissions for their OS.
Android software is free and about anyone can use and customize as they wish. This is the main reason why Android is very poorly optimized and it is -1 when it comes to security.

Like the Phone,
but the BATTERY IS A TOTAL DISASTER. IT DRAINS IN A GLANCE.
Anybody has a solution for that ??

When they claimed it is secured, it should be secured.
A beautiful phone. Seeing through photos does not do this phone justice. The Blackberry suite of apps and UI make this phone a productivity powerhouse. Android navigation is fluid with the gestures. It plays pokemon GO with no problems. Battery life could be better but cmon it weighs 135g and these days you can carry a battery bank around. Loud speaker quality and loudness is better than most phones and most likely beats the HTC boom sounds speakers. This phone is worth the price u pay for it despite it not being a $1000 flagship phone. Is it better than the Alcatel Idol4? from a hardware standpoint no, but in terms of the software and level of detail Blackberry put into this phone it is the better buy.
It's Alcatel with a Blackberry touch (back cover and software).
Hardware doesn't matter as much as what is on offer.

Let's not get drunk with H2O!
What BlackBerry does with Priv and DTEK50 is pure marketing. They found this niche aka android powered devices and the are exploiting it to the max.
Nothing wrong with that but: From a pure premium business terminals, BlackBerry came sow low and they are rebranding mediocre mid-range phone made by Alcatel.

zahraahmadpur , 21 Aug 2016I switched to ios as when as BlackBerry switched to android That's sad, when my BlackBerry Classic will die, I am considering the idea of moving to Windows Phone just to not return to ice cream, lollipops, marshmallows, sandwiches, etc.
Too many sweets can cause serious health problems...
@Blackberry, if you read these comments, please consider the idea to produce a BlackBerry powered by Windows Phone with QWERTY keyboard. This will make the transition easier for BB10 OS fans!
