Phone provided by Blackberry for review.
I'm pretty sure he didn't spend too much time with this phone. If he had, he'd have realized that the keyboard is almost the second killer feature, the other being the battery life. This phone has hands down the longest battery life of any smart phone whose name doesn't start with Lumia. I'm not even sure why I'm watching this, already bought the phone, and if you're considering just go for it.
I love the qwerty keyboard. But how do I get the little notification red light that appears on the message apps? I have to physically go into the apps and check. I don't find the flashing lights at the very top of screen very helpful. Can someone help me??
I really don't think people understand why this is quite frankly the King of handsets. You have to own one to truly understand. And to say they like it but would never buy one, well I'm actually happy people like that don't have this BlackBerry. It's for those who appreciate Real intuitive functionality, Slick design (external and internal ) an almost Supernatural fingerprint sensor. I mean I could go on and on. But like I said before only those who appreciate true quality and user experience deserve this phone. Samsung and IPhone are to this phone to what say Trump and Putin are to the Godfather.
I can see why some people love blackberry. I can see why a keyboard on a phone is amazing. This keyboard clearly is not JUST a keyboard. I can also see no real reason why wireless charging matters. Especially when you can get two whole days out of this phone. I mean how hard is it to plus in a phone while we sleep? Looks like an amazing phone. Not a pretty little breakable one like all the rest. And that’s just fine
Ive always love blackberry phones it had fall off the market for a while for me but this one is good i like the gestures and the physical keyboard i have iphone 10 but could be nice for my secondary line
people do you know how rare are phones with keyboard in 2017+ you can choose dumbphone or blackberry and thats all
back in days we had htc nokia se and all other big phone company producing nice android phones with actual keyboard!
i was huge fan of se mini pro sk17 thaat was awesome phone!
Blackberry should try to move that bottom software section to the keyboard for the next release. The touch keyboard worked great on the Passport because accidental uses of the home button like it happened to you were impossible due to the gesture-based nature BB10. If they could do top tier SoC with a bigger battery, it would be awesome but not absolutely necessary.
I switched to this phone from my s7, and i cant say i have regrets in doing so so far. The specs arent top of the line, but if they upgraded the specs it would be a 100% buy from me later down the line
I’ve been iPhoning for 9 years and I’ve ALWAYS had problems with the touch screen keyboard! Not that severe, but it’s still annoying typing one letter when I meant to type another! I’m tempted to get a BlackBerry as my next handset next year thanks to the physical keyboard but I spent the last 9 years building up a huge iTunes library! I’m also concerned that even next year’s BlackBerry models might not have headphone jacks or 512GB built in storage!
can blackberry just make the fucking blackberryclassic a tad bigger, instead of going off the rails and make a phone like this?!? jesus they know what kind of phone they need to make, they know their bread and butter but NOPE they just like to keep doing different shit and they just keep trying to be edgy fuckin hell.
1080p in a quad HD world? What? I literally don't know a single person with a 4k phone. 2560x1440 is the highest res I've seen on anyones phone. I guess if you live in a normal, realistic world, this is the case.
Good looking phone but i think black berry has been out the race for too long which is sad because they were #1 at the beginning. Props for the effort of making it with a 2017 design but still keeping it "black berry" .
Actually impressed with this phone. Thinking about buying this than the mainstream smartphones.
It's nice that this phone has a keypad!
Still waiting on those Korean smartphones that are designed like a flip phone. lol
Excellent review. I use to love blackberries, it started when the company I worked for provided all their senior employees with company blackberries. It was my first time using a blackberry and I mainly used it for work (emails, text, even BBM). I think that's the target demographic, users that conduct a lot of business correspondence via email. Typing out long emails is a lot easier when you have a tactile keyboard.
I bought 2 of them. One to keep for future for myself as its amazing phone. BlackBerry - please don't close down. If you will make the phones like Keyone you will do better then Iphone or samsung....
Best phone I ever have. Before I use samsung and Iphone. BlackBerry beat them all - unique phone for everyone. I get really bored with samsung and Iphone. Already collecting money to bay third one. Excellent phone is not enough to say....
Has anyone ever wondered why NONE of these "interpersonal" reviews don't EVER talk about the voice or hearing quality? In this world, its like people don't have "PHONES" (or friends) so its always about apps and tech ... but NEVER about sound quality or how good you sound to listeners.
I guess the "voice" part of phones in this "next gen" isn't important ... cause these people would rather TEXT someone of the opposite sex rather than leave their phones behind and actually TALK!
Heaven forbid that they be NORMAL humans, right?
