Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 10 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • Good build quality

  • Simple, clean, no-nonsense design

  • Slim, lightweight, and easy to use with one hand

  • Features a textured material with a silicone-like feel on the back that avoids fingerprints, and allows for a lot of grip

  • The 5.2-inch IPS screen is quite good

  • A dedicated programmable button on the side of the phone can be used to launch any app you want - can be used as a quick flashlight or camera toggle

  • BlackBerry's software tweaks, like the Productivity tab, mostly improve the Android experience, and make for one of the best Android UIs

  • Good software keyboard

  • Decent pair of stereo speakers (they face front and back)

  • The battery supports Quick Charge 2.0 allowing the device to charge to full capacity in about 2 hours

What we didn't

  • The camera struggles a lot in low light - delivering super noisy, smudgy photos in most places that aren't outdoors

  • It is also much slower to focus or shoot HDR images than today's high-end phones

  • Overall performance is lacking - both in real life usage, and benchmarks, putting it in the same category as much lower priced phones

  • BlackBerry's security claims are overstated, and a lot of the claimed security featured are now standard parts of the newer versions of Android

  • Mediocre battery life - barely lasts till the evening with moderate use

  • No fingerprint sensor
