I want this phone so bad, but I still have criticisms of it. I'll accept the non-standard aspect ratio; that's an obvious trade-off for having both not a slider keyboard while also not having an unnaturally long phone. I can accept it not having a Snapdragon 820/835, and I doubt I could tell the difference. It kills me though that it doesn't support the SlimPort or MHL technologies. I understand, that's old news by now. The latest android phone to even support MHL is like what, the Xperia Z5C? And SlimPort never really caught on, but it's still something I hate to see dying because of wireless mirroring technologies which have latency issues.
Hello first of all ; sorry for my bad writing & weak grammer
But about this new product of lovely brand ; blackberry
Body style is not like a usefull device for daily uses. I don't know how to explain my feeling about it but sharp edges , with 4.5 inch display & a qwerty physical keyboard in buttom, all of this on a flat & thin body (and not slide type) and 9.4 mm thickness ... seems a little bit large & weak and maybe fraigle when you want to use qwerty keyboard.(i dont know maybe not like this)
I prefer some old models display size like 3.5inchs. (I compare all of futures with my favour model classic).
About removing bb famous opticall trackball and direct keys for making calls , disconnect and bb menu & ... . I really can't understand that what can be a good acceptable reason for this mess from the producers ... Only battry seems good camera is more better from old versions and fingerprint sensor is a good option for this days devices.
But at all i dont like this new model . for many years i used 9800 torch after that 9900 bold and befor this 8800 & ....
Maybe blackberry want to make many changes in future. But the start of this way not seems clever. They lost the costumers soon. I think ..
I have been waiting on a phone like this since the Blackberry 8830 with the rolly ball left us. I am checking which networks will let me use it and going to switch just to use this amazing phone!
Hardcore bb fan, gave up the passport for a galaxy. Keyone might bring me back, its basically an android passport. Really digging the fingerprint scanner, just dont like the android buttons as to me they signify a lesser device.
waly, 26 Mar 2017with this price There's no IP Certification and its not dual sim ???!!!!I was hoping for a second SIM card and removable battery, but unfortunately, it does not have one... instead I decided that I'll get the KEYone for my main device and just keep my Q10 around for my second SIM card.
with this price There's no IP Certification and its not dual sim ???!!!!
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2017The price is ridiculous. I can buy a used-iPhone 7 with that price. This gonna be failed. i agree with u no sense for hefty price
It looks wonderful. I am switching from iphone to blackberry. Love the qwerty keyboard.
Does anyone have any idea if and when this phone will be available in South Africa?
