I'm buying this phone, it's what I have been waiting for from Blackberry.
Too bad battery is non removable, with BB service center is nowhere to found, lifetime will be limited to 2 years max.
As an ex giants, you lost your intuitions and focus.
Your segment specialties, taken by others, you only watching and enjoy the show.
And still tries grabbing opportunity... as a follower with high prides (price).
What happen with you, BL...??? Cmon...!!!
This phone seems pretty good I could see the price drop a good bit this phones specs seem middle ended. The chipset is a little old but the specs could run very well with 6.0 and perhaps 7.0 if BlackBerry pushes it out. Very good phone I would reccomends this phone for someone new to mobile gaming.

Blackberry is known for their software. Please stop saying bad things about blackberry if you never used one. Blackberry won't choose this phone If there is any single issue with. Just buy it when it comes if you have that much money and find out yourself how good this is......
Thisbus LG phone casing with Alcatel firmware HAVING Blackberry brand
Blackberry company Pls bring a mini version of Priv without keys. many BlackBerry users will love it.
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.

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!
