ar86, 01 Jan 2017Why are so late, I just want an android phone with physical keyboard, and throw my old q10.The BB PRIV have been around for over a year, though most of the time with a hefty price-tag, it is now often available for something in the vicinity of $300.
I bought an UNlocked AT&T variant for $300 back in June, and can HIGHLY recommend it. It is the least bad options out there for us keyboard-lovers.

The spec is Ok. I would prefer the price is between usd350-400. I like physical keyboard.

It's a device I would expect ... moreFalse. 821/820 chipsets only really excel when opening apps, even then the difference is minimal. BlackBerry's excel at rotating from one already open workplace app to the next. The vast majority of workplace devices peform a small variety of tasks. The keyboard allows for customizable hotkey shortcuts that perform tasks within apps after only a single touch. 625 will be fine. Will help minimize the battery drain issue with future o.s updates also. That's what the chipset was built to do.

"Rumor so far had suggested Snapdragon 821 chipset for the device." -> No, rumor so far has suggested Snap625, except for you guys. I've already told you guys this multiple times...
I prefer better battery life then faster processor. People on the go doesn't want to be tethered with a power cord.
AnonD-388312, 30 Dec 2016Screen size is only 0.2 of an inch smaller than the iphone 7, but has a much bigger viewing ar... moreVery right! Can't believe how much viewing space I have left when I'm typing on my HTC 10.

Nick, 30 Dec 2016Yea. Old people prefer physical keyboard. They are too clumsy to use on-screen keyboard lol.OLD People know that there are more than phones in our lives, so some of us like to be able to operate the devices without the need to look at them while doing so...
As they offer QHD 2560x1440 on their previous DTEK60 phablet with a rather high DPI, it is a bit odd, that they did not go for for a igher dpi and 1920x1280 (same 3:2 ratio), that would allow for standard FHD 1920x1080 to be viewed in a 'letterbox' mode in landscape (And plain HD 1280x720 in portrait).
