It's based Alcatel Idol 4, which have a lot problems (network, screen protections, dual sim issues etc). So better skip it.
pec yommlet, 30 Jul 2016now i will fully welcome BB to the world of android...wish you the best of success in the industry. Where have you been hiding? The first Blackberry Android is the high end Priv which came out last November. It has a faster 1.8 Ghertz processor and a slightly bigger screen at 5.4 inches. It is also a bottom slider, but i only use the touchscreen. The battery is much bigger but unlike my Z30, which will last until about 8 PM before it needs recharging on a heavy day, the Priv uses a lot more power as the screen is also wider too. I write at least 5 short articles a day plus search and forward web articles to a newspaper for about 3 hours a day, so it sucks up the juice like an iPhone. Instead of buying the newest DTEK50, wait until the Priv is on sale. New they were $700 in the U.S. and $900 in Canada. Some prices have been as low as $410 in the U.S. for the Priv and you are getting a much more powerful phone for close enough to make the extra price worthwhile. The Priv camera has a German lens with 18 Megapixels and dual flash. The DPI on the screen is about 4 times as many DPI as a big screen TV. The pictures are amazing, which is why i use my phone camera instead on my 24 megapixel hand held Samsung camera for the newspaper.
marhinz!!, 30 Jul 2016Its nt just encouraging: placing battery capacity around 2000mAH at a time when people r runni... moreThe battery isn't around 2000, it's 2610. Big difference. and it's an Adrino so there is very little battery drain compared to the other Blackberry Android Priv which has a larger 5.4 inch screen.
Hi BB, I'm your die hard user ,please don't change your os, or is better that security in this product all out whit you,thanks thanks thanks
Its nt just encouraging: placing battery capacity around 2000mAH at a time when people r running away from frequent chrging. BB seems not to be competent enough, or is probably trying to shy away from the race among producers of mobile devices. Small chinese companies are producing devices with abt 6000mAH
now i will fully welcome BB to the world of android...wish you the best of success in the industry.
As long as BB maintain its Security theme, platform is no issue. But greatly doubt on that merging with Android.
Market trend shift from dignity to fancy. So no wonder.
Apart from OS change, this piece miss to commit body build and screen hardness.
Need upcoming model with
-5.2"+ Gorilla Glass +++
-3000 + battery
-Android 6+ with Full pre~post BB Security features
-Radio(for no Web scenario)
There is no need to bringback BB OS,
Other companies agents may post in its demand, but Andriod is ur best decision.
Uncle Bill, 28 Jul 2016What happened to the Blackberry OS? Please bring back the old times. Android is just to common.I guess BlackBerry shud get back the old traditional keyboard styles phones with the os 10 at an affordable price..i am sure like me there r many die hard fans of BlackBerry os and specially the buttery keyboard. I just love it!
It needs to be priced similar to Moto G.
No more than $200.
Those slow A53 cores running at a max of 1.5GHz means it's lower midrange.
Still it should provide ok battery life.
However, the 2016 Samsung A8 will be so much faster with fast A57 cores running at 2.1GHz. Probably twice at fast!
helloo blackberry, i'm seriously doubting the battery life badly pls can it last up to a day?
hotelsgroupdirector, 28 Jul 2016Don't you still know that all iphones are garbage? Sure,drugs ,lol,but not me ,you.
even for ... moreLol dude you are still on drugs. You are the type of person that don´t go out on streets because you are afraid that someone is spying on you.
You need to read some information before giving your stupid and ridiculous opinion.
Don´t you know that "Spying Software can be placed in any phone and it doesn't matter is the battery is removable or not...
And by the way do you want to compare and android or windows phone with the apple IOS??? I´m not an apple Fanboy by i can recognize a great phone when i see one.
Did you ever seen an Iphone with lag??? That doesn't exists on Apple.
Don´t you know that a phone that have removable battery has 6 months warranty and a non removable battery has 2 yeas warranty???? I gess NOT.
Once again quit the drugs my friend... And read some Trustworthy Information and not what you see on Facebook or stupid conspiracy theory blogs.
MobiGuruJi, 29 Jul 2016Yes... Dear Blackberry please bring back your OS... we love that like anything... die hard use... moreBlackBerry has no problem to bring back BlackBerry10 OS. The problem is with developers, application developers like u know whatsapp is going to end support. Facebook already have end support. The major problem is social media apps. Due to lack of these. BlackBerry have to shift on Android. I'm die hard fan of BlackBerry to. I have bbz30. But now I'm really looking to switch on Android by BlackBerry.
Yes... Dear Blackberry please bring back your OS... we love that like anything... die hard user of BB...
