Android and Security are two words that do not really belong in the same sentence. Search Google about QuadRoot exploits and see how many Android devices were exposed to that. Including here BlackBerry PRIV (ironically PRIV stands for privacy) and BlackBerry DTEK 50. Both phones promoted and praised as "two of the most secure android phones available to masses"
Can you tell me how many BlackBerry 10 devices were exposed to malware, exploits, viruses, etc? The answer is ZERO, my friend! Of couse, never say never, but chances of seeing a virus on a BlackBerry10 device are almost zero. And that without having an ativirus software or any other security related app installed on device.
Want to know why is that? Because BB10 OS it is a proprietary operating system and in the same time it is a closed source operating system.
This is security, not a baby toy powered by an open source Android that is likely to receive a virus by just surfing on Google.
End of story.

But yeah, Blackberry keyboard layout need to be improved. I find the old Nokia E63 has better keyboard layout than Blackberry. But now if you want to have a PKB phone, there is no other choices rather than Blackberry.
stereo speakers, but both speaker at the bottom? ouchh!!! speaker at the above can be used to listen to music?
i like research in motion for their maintenance of traditional qwet keyboard. with qwet, typing is precise. keep on blackberry, i will be one of the first people to grab it

. Its called bb typing shortcuts which android has also copied
Basically $600 phone with.... worse camera than 2 year old Priv, marginally better CPU, and same 3 gigs of ram? Really BB? I was actually psyched for this one until I saw the final specs. Might as well honestly get Nokia 6 because it blows this out of the water for half the price.
AnonD-564370, 01 Mar 2017Dear Friends, If someone doesn't like this 'BBkey1' please keep quite and don't demotivate ... moreI also like blackberry. But now a days I am avoiding blackberry phones as they are introducing non removable battery phones. If they make some changes in BB Q10 & maintain non removable battery with price cut. It will sell like anything
I would get this phone if the PRICE warrants features!!!! If BB keeps OVERpricing their phones, they would never get a customer base that they have already lost years ago. Look at HTC's fate now. But from what i see so far, yes i want to get this.
Finally a work phone that is free from all the entertaninment gimmicks...its a communication device... most people use a fraction of the features in todays smart phone..yet they are looking to buy the most recent performance smartphone... I shall buy a Blackberry Keyone to replace my old Q10.
If someone doesn't like this 'BBkey1' please keep quite and don't demotivate others.
The phone is fantastic, But the price is a little bit more.
Kasutpinjam, 26 Feb 2017Frustrated. Mid range specs in flagship price. Failure is imminent.Oh god, so tiresome those who complain about not having the best chipset all the time.. SOOOOO tiresome.
This is not a gaming device, the SD 625 is more than enough, its powerful enough and its one of the most efficient so the battery life will be very good

And even layout of keys is still based on traditional physical keyboard.
Basics never change.
There are people around who like physical keyboard. It's upto you to buy or not to buy.
AnonD-172730, 27 Feb 2017I guess... 4GB is plenty (just the 3GB RAM on the Priv lags)I have 3 gb on my Huawei p9 and 3 gb is plenty unless u don't use it for gaming.If it had more ram or high end processor the phone would cost 700 $ again just like the Priv.I think the specs are decent bug maybe the price could be 50$ less.
AnonD-506570, 05 Jan 2017What's up with the thick black line around the screen it that normal? Ussualy it's an antenna line ... Maybe 😁
Great handset. People who complain this phone has a keyboard, should just shut up. There are 7 billion of us. Some of us DO WANT KEYBOARDS!.
My only disappointment is the price and the fact, it does not have dual sim.
The keyboard needs improving. It has an ancient layout. Typing something as simple as fullstop or question mark requires 2 presses. and no number row either...
Marius, 28 Feb 2017I am reading all kinds of comments about this phone's security...
I know it's hard, but som... moreBlackBerry Android's comes with built-in BlackBerry Integrity Detection, which continuously monitors for events or configuration changes that could compromise the security of the device. This includes:
Checking the integrity of the kernel on device bootup. (that means you can't root this device , whatever you install it will be removed by secure startup)
Checking for unauthorized changes to the SELinux policy
Monitoring file system mounting permissions
Ensuring that unauthorized apps donÂ’t acquire escalated privileges
Disabling security sensitive applications such as pathtrust
so i'am pretty sure that it still provides better security than most of the android's .
