It seems to be a good comeback by BlackBerry. Hope of getting my hands on this stupendously designed device. Keep it's price competitive,you gonna get the rewards.
How is this called a "premium phone" with those specs? TCL's execs are as clueless as John Chen.
Snapdragon 625 - LOL
Keyboard looks good, disappointed with screen resolution. Priv and DTEK60 look to have better specs.

No OS is as secure as the BB10.
But bro, its disappointing seeing the OS on the verge of getting extinct. No other options will be left after sometime , perhaps by the end of 2017.
So much wanting to buy this but for the single SIM which is a big NO.
I'm so excited BB is coming back. I want to have blackberry unit once the KEYone is available.
I have never used BB mobiles and recently just bought secondhand Blackberry Classic. Then I watched few videos on YouTube to see how to use this thing and what is actually BB concept. I have to say that I am just in Love with mobile, and BlackBerry company. I am going to buy this phone for two reasons.
1) It is the blend of latest os + BB core productivity tools like physical keyboard, security and THE BEST "The Hub"
2) I want to support this company which has been the only company supplying smartphones which were productive before this all touch screen revolution starts.
I think with the classic BlackBerry devices will relive a lot of prestige as it was

It totally beats me why BlackBerry didn't release both BB10 and Adroid versions of their latest phones so the users get to choose. BB10 is by far a superior OS for phones: security, ease of use, logical layout, flexibility, etc.
Really am looking forward for this phone, finally I can feel the keys pressing and a bit of nostalgia could be enjoyed too. Its been ages since a physical keyboard was added on any phone. Specs are not as strong as flagship phones these days, however don't want it to blow up either.
I am so excited for this phone. I just recently bought a classic for its keyboard and it seems like this will be my future phone. I know the specs are not that stellar but I am a simple user and not a fan of phone with similar build that keeps on upgrading every year. I have my laptop to satisfy my multimedia and gaming needs. I do agree that the price is steep for this phone so I'll wait for a year or two before I purchase one. Thank you blackberry for not giving up on keyboard lovers like me even though a lot of people criticize you for it
A mid-ranger with the price of a flagship and a screen this size? Blackberry must be crazy
Would have bought that phone if it was Landscape Slider...8/10 for Specs (Cons: Non-Removable Battery & Newer OS...rumor has it Android 6+ don't have Move Apps to SDcard & Disables Internal Memory if you format SDcard to Internal Memory so you have to choose between internal or external memory)
- 3GB RAM (Perfect)
- 2.0Ghz CPU, 8-Core (Though a Single High CPU suck battery, 8-Cores helps)
- 32GB Storage (Perfect with Any SDcard & Old "Move Apps to SDcard" Feature)
- Adreno 506 GPU (OpenGL 3.2 Support = PS2 Games)
- 4.5" Display & 1080p Resolution (For Games that require bigger Resolution)
- Built-In Radio (How I miss those days), 8MP Camera, etc
- Non-Removable...If the Battery had a compact 100,000mAh I still wouldn't touch that phone
- AGAIN WITH THE PORTRAIT SLIDER AND NO NUM ROW...THIS HAS A GAMING GPU, BUT DISPLAY TO PLAY FLAPPY BIRD ALSO IT MUST BE HARD USING THIS PHONE WITH TOP OF THE SCREEN BEING SO FAR UP
