If Blackberry will launch like blackberry Key 2 Like phones it covers a little market share. Blackberry must launch Backberry Priv 2 with full screen display, punch hole camera and latest android version and software. Full screen display on the upper portion and qwerty slider keyboard like Blackberry Priv that is physical keyboard will appear after sliding the phone. Hope it will help to occupy a good market share.
I had the Bold 9000 and now own the KeyOne and it's a truly great device. I can't wait to upgrade to an even better keyboard and stronger build. Great job BlackBerry!
Love the idea of having 52 different shortcuts right at my fingertip, but not a fan of the tiny physical keyboard, swipe typing is much faster. Fortunately, my Note 8 has me covered with Bixby's quick commands; got access to an infinite number of shortcuts (60+ programmed at this moment) with simple and natural voice commands by simply holding down the Bixby key and saying it...

... moreI had the KeyONE when that first came out (not for long for reasons I'm about to mention). The physical qwerty is simply not worth the lost screen realestate on the device. It's nice to use physical keys until you realize that it's much slower to press buttons than it is to quickly tap out messages or tap in data.
That 4.5" screen (offset to one side when held in portrait mode) makes viewing media and browsing a little less comfortable which could have been somewhat corrected by having an on screen navbar and a larger screen but I guess Blackberry's manufacturer wanted to use up some old 4.5" displays they had lying around.
One of the main reasons I bought my KeyONE last year was because of how everyone was banging on about its awesome battery life. For a phone so big and heavy and with only a midranged 600 series snapdragon I expected it to be the case. I switched from an iphone 7 for about a week and then moved back. The battery life was a lot worse on the BB whilst performance was abysmal in comparison.
There's a reason why most companies moved on from BB and began issuing iPhones and android handsets to their staff.. they're just better. Anyone interested in getting a Blackberry has no real reason to anymore as they are just another Android manufacturer... nothing interesting about them unless your feeling a little nostalgic. Even then, however, the excitement usually wears off after a few days of use, once you realize how much you've sacrifice by having a physical qwerty.
If you're not interested in Samsungs or iPhones, check out the new Nokia 8 or LG V35 for a better typing experience, better features, top specs, and excellent build quality. Physical QWERTY's are a thing of the past and majority of the world has moved on... for good reasons.

I prefer the silver one. Look classy. Saw an unboxing video of it on youtube recently. Its a decent business smartphone. The QWERTY board is also capacitive. You can actually swipe and scroll with it. Very nifty. I also like the hidden fingerprint sensor on the spacebar. Camera quality also arent so shabby. Its a high security phone too taking care of your privacy and passwords. Blackberry fans will love it.
