2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 10 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Fantastic materials and construction
  • Svelte looking industrial design
  • The 4-row BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard is a powerful productivity tool, and works great
  • No fingerprint scanner

Display

  • Gorgeous 5.4-inch AMOLED display, with nice and punchy colors, and a slight edge curve that gives it an extra refined look

Software

  • Near stock Android experience
  • Robust productivity and privacy features - which means this is an enterprise-grade secure communication tool

Performance

  • Somewhat underwhelming performance for a flagship phone - the software could do with more optimization to get the best out of the otherwise capable chipset

Camera

  • Decent primary camera performance, but the camera app is a bit unstable, tending to crash, and shooting stills can be slow
  • Weak front camera

Audio

  • Decent audio quality

Battery

  • Decent battery life

More

  • 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
