Price might come down fast.
It is BB flagship device not a flagship device and I agree should be priced accordingly, chipset will be fine.
Non removeable battery, 4.5 inch display is a letdown. However the classic keyboard feel is a big plus for the phone. However, of late the android phones that have been launched by Blackberry are too premium in pricing which may not attract too many buyers are there are to many smartphones available for that price bracket from the likes of Samsung, Motorola, Upcoming Nokia series, LG and many more which offer a far better user interface / experience.
Great build, but I feel that they're repeating the same mistake by selling us a mid-range to upper range device with a premium price attached.
I was really excited about this phone because it's BB and I love the physical keyboard of them .But after seeing the specs I'm not happy .old version of snapdragon. No more colours.just 3gb ram.Then take a look at the price.
If this has an endurance rating of 90h plus from the GSMArena review test, I'll definitely grab this one, especially for $799AUD, I don't need a super high end chip anyway. I doubt I'll notice much of a performance difference coming from my HTC 10 anyway.
OH, SWEET LAWD ALL MIGHTY! about damn time. my classic is way too old for newer apps and i don't want touch.
Solid build...as always...I have dropped my classic a few hundred times without a lick of damage...this looks very well built...
Nice replacement for my Classic. KEY One looks like a very good daily "workhorse" and that's exactly what I need. Well done BB!
Mahfuz bd , 26 Feb 2017Does it have file manager like BlackBerry OS 10 ?No pitty enough it has not the BlackBerry Map manager but you can install the asus version.
physical keyboard is good(keep it up), touch is still not convenient. But Passport has better design
Blackberry needs to make a phone with a horizontal keyboard. How about the PRIV 2 with a slide out landscape keyboard, 4GB of RAM minimum (6GB preferred), Super AMOLED 1080P minimum screen, and all the other basics. Bring back the old. Like the OQO model 02 or 03 design but a phone.
Frustrated. Mid range specs in flagship price. Failure is imminent.
