It may good if they custamise OS like samsung did, else we wont feel difference between budget andoid phones like micromax, karboon, moto
I hope the screen is 5inch. Thank god they tried putting android instead of insisting their os with small amount of apps. Dont get me wrong bb os is really good. But theyre lacking apps which is the reason why people are not sold. I love the design of bb. Hope it will be 5inch qhd screen with good low light cam clear loud earpice,speakers and atleast 4,5k to 5k mah battery.
Samsung,L G,Sony,HTC,Lenovo,Motorola..... Etc....Now BlackBerry using Android... Still Some people says Android is bad...lol
Hope this comes with Blackberry hub. It's a very useful feature.
I've never been a Blackberry user, but it's nice to see the slider form factor return. It reminds me of some of the great original smartphones, like the Nokia N86. I do wonder if this phone is going to be kind of thick by today's standards. What are the dimensions on that?
Really pity it doesn't come with USB Type-C. Would've otherwise been the perfect phone. Still think this will be my next phone though.
Does the screen look curved on the sides to anyone else? Is it a POLED screen?
I'm kind of liking the look of this phone since I'm still clumsy with on screen keyboards and I like that the phone doesn't look too tall compared to others with the keyboard stowed. The top/bottom bezels look really minimal considering the speakers. The side ones not so much, but they look small enough.
tazzz, 30 Aug 2015A blackberry without bbm installed on itThis is going to have the Blackberry Suite on it. BB Hub, BBM, BB10 Calendar, and a lot of the other stock apps.
I've used nothing but bb's since '97,and presently have the silver passport. Please...please have the trackpad and back button on this one as well...!
AnonD-8709, 29 Aug 2015hey, its blackberry not samsung or lg , to use cheap plastic..... Blackberry have the reputati... morePlastic is plastic, what slap a BB logo on a Samsung or LG phone and it means good quality now? If so then you need to divorce your favourite brand because it cares about money not you.
There is no advantage of physical keyboard which is even smaller than onscreen keyboard. The only thing is physical keyboards tend to wear after 1-2 years.
If they have a 5 inch variant I will be screaming for them to take my money! It looks gorgeous, even with all those plastic!
so BlackBerry is no longer like iPhone...exclusive, using their own OS, build quality....
They should also make a version without the physical keyboard it would look really slick like that. When the keyboard panel is shut behind the phone looks better.
A little odd with slideout portrait keyboard, but landscape stereo speakers.
But nice to see a little variations.
With the lack of competition, I might get it, if it comes in my language (doubt it, though).
Would like if there was some kind of pointer device, to control the device from the keyboard, so you don't have to move grip to reach the touchscreen to be able to control it.
I wish they made a Q10 style device with android as well, it's nice and pretty compact.
No I have nothing really against BB10, except for some android apps that I use, dont work. And if you like smartwatches for example, few supports BB OS.
