Best phone I have ever owned hands down. The battery life is fantastic. Combine that with the blackberry features in the android system and in my opinion you get a top notch phone.
A heavy brick with ugly design, bad camera and mediocre display. The few personalized or proprietary apps can't hide the truth. Overpriced too.
this phone is massive, and every time blackberry do good job with every phones. As always i'm expecting something new and blackberry does it. His designs processors and camera are pretty good but as compare to price blackberry offers less storage, camera pixels and quite processors also. But i did not like its UI theme and design of its application which does not give attractive look.
But its good because after keypad phone blackberry entered to a touchscreen smartphone, but blackberry should have continued with their keypad phones also because blackberry is known for his track pad, unique design, camera, size, their buttons, finishing and main thing is its ringtone and logo which users gives a different views and mind set.
At recent times blackberry also offered good processors in starting segments like in passport, priv and dtek 60 and good storage and ram in keyone. And Also they can offer different variant of storages, and camera or ram.
The home button looks really ugly and the handset is overpriced as BB do like to do.
Priv had an actual keyboard and full usable 16:9 amoled screen (curved one at that!)
Keyone had an actual keyboard, and to a great degree better albeit smaller aspect screen.
This has..some apps?
Blackberry and Nokia will never again be the names they were in mobile industry 10 years ago.
The appreciation that this ugly and overpriced brick can arouse is proportional to the number of comments it has. It is very poor with clear reasons, not like his display with low contrast under the sunlight, at Razer Phone level, so trash.
The low light photos of this phone for it's price range are ridiculously blurred and lack of details, look at the map of the subway. The SoC is old and the big battery is not profited as much as it should, etc, etc... For a cheap phone ($120?) it could be acceptable, no for this one.
How many stars out of 5 is this phone? I expected 2.9 because of the big bottom bezel.
Pricy?? It is cheaper and better than crapsung A8 2018, except for the STBR.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2018Moto Z Play scored 100h with same SD625.
Sony XA1+ scored 102h with Helio P20 ( 625 equivalent)
Exclude those 2 companies, older than RIM, no company cant compete with them.
Hopefully RIM rise again, pls update twice
I like the design... a lot.
And its not that pricey, at least according to trends...that is, nowadays mainly design oriented pricing.
Large 4000mAh battery and a very power efficient SD625 SoC, but with overall battery life lesser than, say the XA1+.
This is why we always don't rely on specs. The best way to test out how good a phone is is by using them yourself in person.
I see two things (at least) missing from a usual review:
1 No audio quality review section
2 No low-light photo samples
Come on GSMArena !
