We know the specs. We know it's not flagship. We know the price.
The price is too high regardless of how well the Chinese assemble the phone. Too many other (better) options unless you absolutely must have a physical keyboard.
Srini, 09 Apr 2017New passport with androidIf only...This one is over the top and mediocre at the same time.... looks like a remote control...
Marius, 11 Apr 2017Seriously, IRDA in 2017 !!! What's next: monochrome display, polyphonic ringing tones and WAP ... moreReally? IR can be used for remote control, for example. It won't be used for file transferring like 10 years ago
Marius, 11 Apr 2017Seriously, IRDA in 2017 !!! What's next: monochrome display, polyphonic ringing tones and WAP ... moreIRDA is useful, You can use your phone as remote control for various devices. Also air conditioning in office :)

You have to wake up to reality man! In recent years any self-respecting manufacturer did equipped their mobile phones with NFC chip, because that is more versatile than IRDA.
AnonD-654589, 09 Apr 2017no java no mini hdmi no removable battery !!! f u bb !You must hate a lot of cell phones and a lot of cell phone companies.

Remember when BlackBerry announced DTEK60, everyone speculated that it would be pricey but BlackBerry released it at a competitive price of $499.
There's still a small probability that BlackBerry may release this phone in the range of $300 to $400 and in such case this phone does have the potential to take the market by storm.
Priv was pricey because it was manufactured in-house by BlackBerry while this phone is manufactured by TCL, just like DTEK60 which reduces cost of manufacturing by great extent.
Iqadi, 30 Mar 2017Ive had some bb phones before. I really love phones with qwerty keyboard ( had p990i/p1i bfore... moreThe priv is nice except the thermal throttling is terrible . But to be completely fair this keyone is far from a mud rwnfe device. It has the same camera as the pixel which is unbelievably good. The stereo speakers on blackberry are as good as any of the android dual speaker set up. And the screen, keyboard and software are top notch. The snapdragon 625 is a tried and true chip. It is one of he best chops for power efficiency bs as far as running programs, apps and games u will NOT notice a day to day difference what so ever. The idea that because the chipset isn't an 800 series snapdragon that it must be sun par is just wrong. The 800 series processors have had several dreary outcomes over the last few years. The 801 was the last really great chip in the 800 series prior to the 820 and. 821. The 805 was ok. The 808 was a crap chip. The 810 was horrible with power efficiency and thermal throttling. However the 600 series chips have had little to no issues. The 625 in the keyone will likely be one of the smartest moves that blackberry made with this phone as it will be toted as one of the longest lasting batteries I. A smartphone in 2017. I think u should really look into the keyone before u rule it out as "under spec'd"
AnonD-656862, 29 Mar 2017Hello first of all ; sorry for my bad writing & weak grammer But about this new product ... moreIts price is too high,Blackberry keeps fiving too high prices for their OK specs wise phones,if this was 400 euros or US dollars,it would be fine,but this will likely cost 700 or something.I know this is not the phone for the casual consumer,but some people like blackberry phones for their beautifull design and want to buy them,but the price is too high,thats what happened with the Blackberry Priv as well.
Ive had some bb phones before. I really love phones with qwerty keyboard ( had p990i/p1i bfore)
Ive been inlove with the passport (love the size/screen size and the soft keys, but had problems with some unupdated apps such as fb etc.wish it was android. Im an s7 user now but wanting to buy the priv.is it really worth it?
Im sure Keyone would be pricey with a midrange specs. I think its not worth the price.
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.
