About BlackBerry

Research in Motion, RIM, is a Canadian-based wireless device company famous for the development of the BlackBerry smart phone line.

Show more

RIM was founded by Mike Lazaridis and is based in Waterloo, Ontario. Before the development of the BlackBerry, RIM worked with RAM Mobile Date and Ericsson, assisting in converting the Ericsson-developed Mobitex wireless data network into a two-way paging and wireless email network.

RIM has gone on to develop many different BlackBerry devices, which have become the smart phone of choice among business and government professionals. So loyal are BlackBerry users that the devices have come to be known as Crackberries, a back-door joke aimed at users who claim they cannot live without them.

Major competitors include Apple Inc., HTC, Palm, Motorola, Samsung and others.

Packs plenty of appeal

BlackBerry Motion

from Recombu

The Motion might not be the sexiest smartphone around, but you get a lot for your £399. That feature-packed software is the best part, with a strong emphasis on security and staying organised, while the incredible battery life won’t leave you in the lurch. If only the camera were more capable and the processor a little nippier, we’d have no complaints at all.

Secure shooter for private pics

BlackBerry Motion

from Recombu

Daylight shots come packed with detail, looking good no matter how big the screen you view them on. As far as simple home movies go, the Motion captures detailed footage with respectable results. You’ll notice the occasional issue such as lens flare popping up in bright conditions, although we’re more troubled by the lack of proper image stabilisation. The 8-megapixel camera housed around the front of the BlackBerry Motion does a respectable job of taking selfies.

Big, bold boss of business

BlackBerry Motion

from Pocket-lint

It's big, solid and has a touch of restrained class about it. BlackBerry is clearly trying to ensure it's made a touchscreen phone with all the perks business-types would expect from a BlackBerry, while being well-enough equipped to attract the average consumer.

Looking to attract the audience it once had

BlackBerry KEYone

from Digit

As a standalone device, the BlackBerry KeyOne is a good phone. However, throw competing smartphones into the mix at the same price point and it’s difficult to recommend the KeyOne.

Fone Arena

Targeted at the business users or those who loved physical keyboard

BlackBerry KEYone

from Fone Arena

Overall, the KEYone offers good performance, has a really good camera, comes with a physical QWERTY keyboard and the battery life is good as well. If you can manage the small display, hybrid SIM and can spend the amount, go for it.

The Indian Express

A good one and maybe the best to ever carry a BlackBerry logo on it

BlackBerry KEYone

from The Indian Express

For those who loved a BlackBerry once and would love to go back to one, the KEYone offers a great option. It is a phone that works and is really up to the task for 2017. However, for me the biggest USP of the BlackBerry is a skill I have forgotten. Yes, I have realised that I really struggle now with a physical QWERTY keyboard and long to touch the touchscreen to get the words out. I just hope, BlackBerry’s core audience also does not suffer from this issue. Then BlackBerry might have a bit problem.

Awkward marriage of hardware and software

BlackBerry KEYone

from NDTV

This is a unique smartphone and can't really be judged as an equal with others in its price class. It clearly targets a niche, but what's unknown at this point is whether the target audience is big enough. Even if there are people who like the idea or the memory of a physical keyboard, will they be willing to accept the tradeoffs that this phone demands? In a universe of sleek metal phones with borderless screens and curved glass everywhere, the KEYone is a bit of a brute and we're not sure we would like this as our primary phones, even though we can really make use of its productivity features.

The Wirecutter

Keyboard-packing workhorse

BlackBerry KEYone

from The Wirecutter

The BlackBerry KEYone is the only modern Android phone with a physical keyboard. It offers excellent build quality, better battery life than the Pixel or the Galaxy S8, and a clean version of Android with added BlackBerry features. The KEYone isn’t as fast as the Pixel or the S8, and the price is a little high considering the midrange specs, but this is the keyboard-bearing phone some people have been waiting for. It’s the only real option if that’s what you want.

Notebookcheck

A good, but expensive speciality for users who enjoy working with a physical keyboard

BlackBerry KEYone

from Notebookcheck

It is good to finally have a new model with a physical keyboard on the market again. The extensive security features and decent battery runtime are the biggest advantages of the BlackBerry KEYone. Others are its bright screen and the many and well-functioning input options including a physical keyboard with additional functions.

The best BlackBerry in years

BlackBerry KEYone

from finder.com.au

The BlackBerry KEYone is a great option for diehard keyboard-using fans of the platform, but you're not exactly awash with keyboard-toting options. In the wider Android sphere at this price point you're entirely spoilt for better choices.

It is a great phone

BlackBerry Z3

Price and other specifications are also good. But drawback is lack of dual sim as well unsupportance of NFC and limited active frames.

Give 2 weeks of true hands on experience with this phone. And you won't go back to iPhone.

Pleasant Surprise

Blackberry is back in the game with the Z30. The sound quality of the phone is excellent. Texting a is as good as any Samsung or iPhone I have tried.

Blackberry is back in the game with the Z30. The sound quality of the phone is excellent. Texting a is as good as any Samsung or iPhone I have tried. The Z30 excels with the reliable long battery life which is critical in an office setting. The web browser is as quick as any I have used on any cell phone. I frankly don't care if the phone doesn't have mind boggling screen resolution, it is a phone not a camera, and is more than adequate. Less
My screen got damaged and I don't know where to fix it up

Great comeback for BlackBerry

BlackBerry Z30

Although mine only has an above average battery life, I found the HUB and swipe much more fluent than other phones I've had. The browser is very fast and it surprised me by the quality of the screen. All in all, I would defiantly recommend this phone to friends and colleagues alike.
Awesome battery life !
If you are looking for a communication device rather than a camera then do not overlook the Z30. The upgraded platform is app friendly and I love the Hub, where I can get all my messages in one convenient spot. Most of all, being a Canadian, I get to support a national company.

Good But!!!

BlackBerry Z10

Problematic when loading pictures to Main PC. Very poor battery life
