Azhar Jamal, 29 Sep 2015Front shooter is 5MP not 8MP. It's an encrypted phone that's why it's so secure. It worth this... morePeople who are concerned about security is the hook.
But even amongst them, many will not even activate the basic security features the handset (Android / Blackberry /Apple ) offers
But this security is based on you losing the phone, and how your data is vulnerable.
There are many free apps that can encrypt an email so that area is covered.
I have an app lock basic so those areas are covered, another free Android app approaches this from another angle in that it secures folders.
However when the phone is locked, there is no access to the phone.
A thief won't be trying to crack the phone to search for compromising data he will wiping the phone
I have seen examples of lost my phone etc, who haven't taken the time to install the free anti theft features
The feature in like is sim card change alert, if this could be linked with WiFi hotspots as any thief could only use his network data or home WiFi, because the hotspot connection would be a beacon.
Encryption may be the only feature offered which may slow the phone down a bit, but many of the features offered by this phone may already be available just not activated on your handset.
With many high end phones you can be almost as secure, but if your phone is lost, only then do they offer the advantage
A lost phone is still a lost phone
Blackberry and Blackphone offer some pretty cool security but all security can be hacked eventually. It is like Security Fashion lol.. it goes out of style eventually sooner than later
Hello, can someone tell me where I can purchase this blackphone 2 in san francisco? Thanks
FlappyArnie, 29 Sep 2015see, the price is very high like in BlackBerry Phones,, >> low Specs with high price... ... moreHey you.....stop talking silly......
I think you know nothing about the current market.....
Blackberry phones have better specs in lower price nowadays.......... For those high end specs you are paying just half the amount as iPhone.......
Blackberry Priv main rival. I would love to see side by side comparison on how they handle security.
Excellent. Just too big is all. Otherwise would have bought 2.
Paul, 29 Sep 2015If i remember correctly, the "security" of the first black unecesary phone was broke in like l... morethe rooting of the Blackphone required that the attacker:
have physical access to the phone and connect it to a computer via USB,
configure the phone against BlackphoneÂs set-up recommendations,
not install encryption on the device,
ignore an unknown application source warning, and
have the phones PIN code.
In other words, to hack the Blackphone, the hacker would have to have either obtained it from a very naïve user or bought the phone himself.
see, the price is very high like in BlackBerry Phones,, >> low Specs with high price... if you are wondering what are you paying for 700, then it is your privacy.. like blackberry, BB hides some of your data with encryption so that many security agencies wont notice it in which Android, iOS and Windows dont support high encryption.
If i remember correctly, the "security" of the first black unecesary phone was broke in like less than 10 minutes by some guy. So...
babakmansouri, 29 Sep 2015for these specs usd 700 is too much, i think they should decrease the cost if they want to sell goodYou don't pay for hardware here, but for software. Blackphone puts a lot of work to make Android completely secure. Their phone is not for everyone.
Front shooter is 5MP not 8MP. It's an encrypted phone that's why it's so secure. It worth this much price tag if you are really concerned about privacy.
