You based your experiences of this phone on a phone you used over 5 years ago. This doesnt even use the same operating system.

Here's a list of pros and cons for people who haven't touched the device at their local carrier store:
Pros:
-nice big screen.
-Android os(if that's you're thing)
-Native play store compatibility
-Physical sliding keyboard
-bb focused apps have made it in..kinda
-Able to scroll using keyboard touch like old bb phones
-Fast security updates.

Cons:
-This is. a 1.0 device so not everything is bb focused like bb os10.
-Keyboard little hard to press. Honestly not their best keyboard but since there's no competition it's the best one out there.
-Battery life is average, but I heard updates have made it better.
-Slow os upgrades.
-Their security app is useful for the dumbest smartphone users only.
-some might not like it that it's not all metal, but I did not mind the overall build.

Neutral:
-Locked bootloader, but if you're getting a bb the focus is on security not rooting and roms.


At 700, it's a pricey phone. At almost half the price 6 months later, much easier to recommend, especially to former bb users. If you are used to soft keyboards you're not going to type faster with the physical keyboard because of its size.
this runs android. same apps as any other Android.

The freefall has begun. Since this may well be it for Blackberry in hardware, it's now a game of chicken, timing your purchase for the low point, before inventory runs out.

So.... my last experience with blackberry was the blackberry bold in 2010 and I think it was an okaaaay phone. The things that worked - they keyboard, the touchpad, the battery life, some of native apps - worked very well.

However, what made me really hate them was things that don't work well. That includes the ENTIRE app store, the feature to call over wifi (an obsolete feature by today's standards), and the web browser.

Bottom line was I felt it was a very basic phone, unable to do much more than calling and texting. Wasn't much of a smart phone. I do really really really really miss a physical keyboard though so I'm tempted to go play around with this one.

Yeah I know. But blackberry struggled to make a polished product before so I'm weary if they won't disappoint again even on the android platform now.

It's finally hitting the price point that it probably should've started at... I just don't get how BB thought it could get Galaxy money by just slapping a physical keyboard on a phone with mid-range specs.
