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 !
This phone is nothing more than a midrange overpriced Alcatel to me. Just look at those capacitive buttons.
Moto Z Play scored 100h with same SD625.
Sony XA1+ scored 102h with Helio P20 ( 625 equivalent)
£250 more than a Redmi Note 5 for waterproofing, an app that tells you to add a fingerprint and a lock screen? Oh and an insane chin. All the software that makes BBs so secure can be had on every Android out there. You may well have to pay, but if you buy a phone for half the price, spend £10-20 on apps, you're still saving over £200! They screwed themselves over with the Priv (which even used is still borderline) and they're doing the same here. The Dtek50 could've been a good come back, akin to the Moto G series, but they didn't market it enough, and it was still overpriced but nowhere near as much. Come on Blackberry!
