Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

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

What we liked
  • Fantastic materials and construction
  • Svelte looking industrial design
  • Gorgeous 5.4-inch AMOLED display, with nice and punchy colors, and a slight edge curve that gives it an extra refined look
  • Near stock Android experience
  • The 4-row BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard is a powerful productivity tool, and works great
  • Robust productivity and privacy features - which means this is an enterprise-grade secure communication tool
  • Decent audio quality
  • Decent battery life
  • BlackBerry is still a force to be reckoned with in the corporate world with its end-to-end communication platform and various special tailored solutions
What we didn't
  • Somewhat underwhelming performance for a flagship phone - the software could do with more optimization to get the best out of the otherwise capable chipset
  • Decent primary camera performance, but the camera app is a bit unstable, tending to crash, and shooting stills can be slow
  • Weak front camera
  • No fingerprint scanner
