Just got the blackberry phone this week and i have come to like some thingsN and i have come to dislike other things.
Build quality is a downgrade from the passport which i was using, the keyboard lacks a smooth finish that feels nice, the back has a pocket of air between the casing.
Software is one of the best in the android market, it's one of the best phones to get for a stock on screen keyboard, the extra layer of security is nice, and the slide from the curve as a shortcut is a nice feature.
The curved screen is almost pointless on this phone as it is not used at all in any real sense other then for the shortcut option,
It gets hot rather fast, the middle button on the right no longer has any useful features(used to be used to stop and start media) the camera software is naff, but that aside it's a nice enough phone and one tat i feel safer sing with all the things going on in the world

Batam King, 30 Nov 2015I'm a Blackberry user and actually am expecting this one but though I can afford it, the price... moreThey just start to reduce the prices on Ebay. New & unlocked for £586.99. That's around £100 less than 2 weeks ago. I guess in February/March they will hit the reality (£350 +/-).
I'm a Blackberry user and actually am expecting this one but though I can afford it, the price is ridiculously overpriced. I understand the premium part but I'm not spending so much on a phone which is for email and chat.
Blackberry needs to wake up so it may survive the war.
I was slightly disappointed with the build quality of the phone. It would creak even with the slightest of touches.
The phone itself was really good, especially if you like a physical keyboard. Plus the software experience is good - near stock plus some useful BB additions. Battery life was decent.
Just a shame about the build quality. Not sure if was just the unit I got, but have seen quite a few comments from users with a very similar experience.
the only reason for me to choose lumia 950 over this, is the OS
it's a REALLY classy phone (priv) and i'd like to have it, but i'm obsessed with WP and the high quality of lumia phones that i've experienced
but any android or BB lover should NOT turn this awesome phone down
good job blackberry, happy to see you on market

You currently living in 2015 with Advanced Operating System with tons of Free Apps on Android but you don't have any Privacy and Security Feature, because for what???? Hanging Android OS!!!!! LOL..... The BlackBerry Phones Only made for Business and Power User who want Their Security, Privacy and Productivity First.....!! Not a cheap application like available as well as in Android!!!.. I Currently using BlackBerry Z3,since last a year ago and it works fine... no hang... no lag like your Android.... LOL !!!! Again......!!! Now listen if you have few knowledge about that Android the I will tell you firstly it's an Open Source Operating System and everyone makes an application and easily upload on this!!!!!!.

Reason is simple no hangs....!!!!. And yes Always remember BlackBerry is only made for Professional's not for everyone like you...... Child.....!!! Before talking and Written about BlackBerry, firstly Read about them and use it and read the Story behind his Classic BlackBerry BB Logo!!!! And one thing mind your tongue !!! You Android??????

Well built, tactile feedback(keys) may be appreciated by some. It would have been even cooler if the keys were a display, able to change the characters based on context.

This guy is a bit expensive, the specs are solid not top of the line but fairly up there. But having android is a huge step for blackberry and i think once they put out a few more android blackberries one will be worth picking up.
