Have a more publicly discovered, discussed & patched security holes in the public available (most of) code with very much eyes on it than undiscovered nor discussed property closed source ones. Guess you think what you don't see or know can't hurt you, well guess what you are wrong. CAF is among safest platforms that are widely used & CVE's are fast provided & easy to integrate. Combination of that & a good team behind the device maintenance (which Blackberry certainly is) equals security.
The only thing ridiculous about this phone is it's price. This should go for $400 max.
Runs Android, offers less security than an old BBOS device, and has more security holes than iOS & Windows combined. So it's not a true BlackBerry.
But might be ok for the unknowing, uncaring, average Joe.

It is just as capable it run any day to day task fluid as the 8-serial chips..and battery life and security is the main focus. MY DAD still uses his old Bold becuase its reliable. He tried amd iphone instantly regretted in 4days . These phones are focused on the users who are tired of their new awesome powerful phones which becomes a paperweight if your not near a power source :)
finally. it took them quite a while to make one but specs are decent. quite pricey but this will find it is way from business people who sends email through their phones. some girls might consider it who loves to chat as the physical buttons is invaluable for typing without looking at the screen.

Even though I don't like iOS iphones gaming prowess best for devices with screen sizesupto 5.5 inches

The physical navigation keys are designed for a specific reason. On-screen keys offer no tactile confirmation they are touched.
Well, What is the Phone total weight ?
Its expensive for the hardware given, tho the camera is similar with pixel but still somehow I think its better if its at most USD400. However i'm kinda like this phone, I miss the keyboard where it gives the ease of access. Well lets just hope this phone come in my country.
The Samsung c9 pro costs 550 dollars in India and that has 650 only. What do you say about it.

Why don't you put phone on table and operate with 1 hand?
This phone is larger than s7. Why are you so sure you can use with 1 hand? If you can use this phone with 1 hand, most 5"-5.2" android phones and iphone can operate with 1 hand.
Lastly, sale numbers will tell whether it is a good or fail product.

Time is money, so business users need fastest possible processor for more productivity. Faster processor means future proof. With this slow processor, the phone will lag like hell after a year of usage. Also, there are many android phones out there that beat this phone in battery life.

Regardless of whether it's a QWERTY or non-QWERTY phone, it's overprices with technology a generation or two behind.
Makes me wonder if they are buying these chips as surplus in the secondary market from manufactures trying to dump their overstock of chips. LOL.
ProudSerbian, 25 Feb 2017599, are you insane, did you mean 399? Going for the Asus zoom 3.Yep. Just crazy cash for the specs. Blackberry hasn't released a phone worthy of a premium price since Chen took over. Mid-market specs...flagship prices. No thank you.
