2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 15+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Solid build quality
  • Stunning, premium looks with a stainless-steel frame
  • Squat, square shape makes it awkward to use - and virtually impossible to use with one hand - this is a phone that clearly sacrifices comfort for productivity

Display

  • Gorgeous, high-quality display, that is excellent for both reading, and editing documents, because of its width
  • Apps that aren't optimized for the square display can also look a little odd

Software

  • Good physical QWERTY keyboard, with clever gesture support
  • BlackBerry OS has useful productivity apps/functionality built-in
  • Blackberry Assistant is a useful voice-search assistant (like Google Now on Android, and Siri on iOS)
  • Android apps are supported but the app store that is included (Amazon app store) is limited and lacks some of the apps found on Google Play
  • The gesture based interface of the Blackberry OS takes time getting used to

Performance

  • Fantastic speed/performance backed by top-end hardware

Camera

  • Average camera - takes too long to focus and snap photos

Audio

  • Excellent call quality
  • Excellent dual speakers

Battery

  • Very good battery life

More

  • Blackberry Blend offers full control over your phone from a PC, or another mobile device
  • Heats up during gaming
