A stylish, attractive option with sterile esthetics being all the rage nowadays. Would be on my list but will be a stretch getting the device as Blackberry has by and large been dropped by Canadian carriers. Not really worth me shelling out the $700+ the device will likely cost unlocked either, i don't think.
i am a blackberry user since 2005

abi, 22 Apr 2017why the LCD? we all are expecting AMOLED....!!!!This phone has been annouced as having an IPS LCD for a long time now, I'm not sure where your shock comes from. Anyway, I imagine the issue would have to be the phone's non-standard resolution and screen aspect ratio of 3:2, which would mean they'd have to order custom AMOLED panels which would be more expensive. On a device that on release will likely be a good bit more expensive than phones coming with Snapdragon 835s, they probably wanted to avoid having to add onto the price tag. (And BlackBerry isn't exactly a company that can afford to be selling devices at a loss right now.)
xXENDER FREAKXx, 22 Apr 2017Wow previously BlackBerry Priv have a slide up keyboard, which doesn't affect the screen size.... moreApplications on your phone already scale according to your phone's resolution and the screen size. There are people who have phones that have a resolution of 1280x720 like the Xperia X Compact who are able to use applications just fine. This phone has a similar screen size while also having a larger resolution. It isn't as big of an issue as you may think, but more importantly, many apps on our phone are designed around the idea that at some point the keyboard will be taking up the screen. This is a phone where that's sort of constant, and so your screen is never readjusted to make room for the keyboard.
Wow previously BlackBerry Priv have a slide up keyboard, which doesn't affect the screen size. And now what? 4.6 inches plus no slide up keyboard, how are you going to use the phone when the screen is almost half of the body?
