Move aside, Apple
>>62400458That's actually kinda cool
fool me once, shame on youfool me twice... can't get fooled again
>>62400508I think we can all agree the Priv was a fuckup but I dont forsee that happening with the keyone
Can't put my finger on it, but something about this is appealing.
>>62400566Trusting anything with the blackberry logo after 2006 was the fuck up.
>>62400773Because it looks like a thinkpad and not a shiny glass rectangle.Could do without the camera bump and just have a thicc phone with a thicc battery.
>>62400508THISNot only this shit can't be rooted or unlocked, this kind of fuckup is why BB should just remain dead and buried.
>physical keyboarduh grandpa it's 2017
I miss it ;_;Wish they made a new version. That big keyboard and 1:1 screen are glorious.
>>62400458really about to pull the trigger on one of these. I have an iPhone 7 right now. Should I sell it to get the KEYone? I used a Q10 for over three years
>>62402243>I miss it ;_;same
>>62402243Still using one right now, don't see why I should trade it for something else - except for another blackberry maybe >>62402258I'm waiting for the prices to drop below 300€ and check back then. Afaik there are no custom roms for it and I'm not sure if I want to go full botnet
>>62402350>custom romsDoes it really need it now though? It's running nougat and so far that's everything you need. Also I'm sure developers will figure something out in a few years. If only BB10 could have had better apps, this wouldn't be a problem. I personally loved BB10 and it was the best.
>>62402443>Does it really need it now thoughYes, it really does need custom roms.
>>62402443>if only BB10 could have had better appswatyou can install any android apk

>>62403520Yeah but then my phone turns into a oven
>>62402258It's pretty good man If you've got no problem with Android or physical keyboards it's great Just like the similar spec moto z play gen 1 It's truly a phone with no worries
Nice but it'll be gimmick expensive
>>62403758>phone gets warm under cpu loadI can't really follow you there, maybe try battery saver mode
>>62403848Yeah but if you want a physical keyboard and a not dead os you have no choice
>>62403897I'd preorder it right now, if it had a trackpoint holyshit that would be cool
>>62403891Anon have you ever used a passport? I'm talking leaving red marks where I held the phone hot not my phone is uncomfortable to hold hot The thing is like a metal chair in summer in minutes because the vm blackberry uses for Android only runs with two cores It's literally the only reason why I ditched my passport for a keyone Also I'm not talking about >hurr I'm playing gayms on a blackberry xdI'm talking about listening saved music from Spotify or the Foss version of telegram
>>62403906Keys aren't staggered so placement would be a bit meh Also the size of a trackpoint would cover four keys The touchpad keyboard is pretty good too though
>>62403891>>62403944I'm dumb I just realized your screenshot, though you just posted a meme My point stands for most of it though
>>62400458>still no t9 android option.
>>62403955They could design it to implement it, I'm so sick of using a touchscreen, its fucking my wrists and hands.
>>62403968Maybe like just over the ghvb keys would act as a a trackpoint maybe?
>>62403982>flip phone>low end hardwareAll I want is something that looks like the phone in OP but with a t9 keyboard.They should obviously remove the home/back software buttons and integrate it with the keyboard somehow. eg. long press space bar == home or something.I really miss having a good way to write on phones.qwerty is a bad system (especially on touch).Autocorrection for qwerty has never been good, T9 just worked and is so easy to improve.

>>62400458>>62402243 #>>62402347 #>>62403982 #>>62404237 #I'm fucking sick of smartphones and I'm sticking with this.50 $, battery lasts forever, resistant as hell even though screen is bigger than the original.I just call my mom and brother with my phone, and sometimes some of my few friends, mostly to set up where/when to see each other, so I'm fine with it. I use the PC for work and entertainment and I don't give a shit about social networks or shitty chats like WhatsApp or cancergram. If I want to talk with someone I'll just call him, better if on the house phone so we both don't pay and, having a wired one, I don't get head cancer.I once used a smartphone and all that crap and I'm fucking sure my brain health has improved since I switched to this jewel. Less distractions, less bullshit.
having been typing on a touch screen for almost 10 years, I'm so good at it now that I don't see the point. I've tried typing on an old blackberry, and newer physical keyboard devices, and it's simply not as fast for me as the touch keyboards I've gotten used to. I'm interested to know if it is for anyone else.
>portrait qwerty>not landscape>horrible aspect ratio for portraitif you go portait you need 5:4, 4:3 or 1:1>inb4 i haz small thumbs n landscape too big
>>62404660Same for me. Got a Blackberry Classic from work and while it is a great keyboard that lets you type incredibly consistent long text without much need for typo-corrections, it just is so much slower to type overall.Keyboard shortcuts for things like marking mail and replying is neat tho.Would really love to use it, but all apps I use for private life like Instagram are not available on this device unless you emulate them. And then they're not tied in with the hub which I don't like.But yeah, even for power mail users there's no "need" anymore to have a physical keyboard.
>>62404660I have the illusion of being so good because the corrector helps me. But I'm trying right now and if I pay a bit more attention I can properly type without errors even without correction.So yeah I'm now better to type on the phone than on the PC and this makes me feel filthy.
>>62404660I am not even at 50% efficiency of my typing speed with T9.I can't type without looking anymore and I can't write an email without having to rely on autocorrect to fix the fact that my fingers are the size of 3 buttons.I haven't tried the blackberrys, but I don't think this is a good solution anyway.For me, the problem is a full qwerty keyboard.The only situation where a qwerty keyboard is better than a T9 is when a word is not already in the dictionary.This could easily be fixed though.
>>62404718such a real feel. I once did a screen recording of me typing, that showed where I hit the screen. The corrector has gotten so good, and I've gotten so good at correcting the corrector that I basically just poke the screen in the general area of the letter I want to type.
>>62404732>can't type without looking anymore. Do you not type much? I can type without looking at the keys, just looking at the cursor. Possibly that's what you meant.
>>62404666You can't see shit when you put the phone in landscape mode though.Landscape is for video and """games""".
>>62404785This. Never typed in landscape in my life.
>>62404785>>62404794I'm >>62404718My typing skills are like 1% if I keep the phone in landscape mode. I only do it with the Hearthstone chat since it's the only way to talk to my friends without putting the game in background which could be seen as a disconnection from the game, but it's just outright painful, I tend to give short answers in this scenario.
>>62404785thats the point of having a phsyical qwerty so your fingers dont cover the screenthen you get the best of both worlds because its the same aspect ratio as tvs and monitors 16:9 and everything formats correctly
>>62404862Except in OP you have that fucking qwerty permanently covering what in other phones would be screen. The reason why both Samsung and Apple went as bezelles as possible is just that: people want more screen percentage.
>>62404862You don't get the best of both worlds though.Documents (emails, websites, im's, etc) is a format where you need to show many lines.The best of both worlds is typing in vertical and watching movies in horizontal (assuming the video format)The only part I don't understand why we insist on using bad systems.Screen rotation is a good example.I get why the automatic rotation thing started.It is a cool feature to show off, but it has not been improved in a long time and it is really bad.Applications such as video players should just detect the resolution of the video and then pick the right rotation, it shouldn't be up to the user to rotate it or click the rotate button.
>>62405124Yeah right? One thing I hate is that I like to keep the rotation off most of the time, since I sometimes type/read while laying and it screws up, so every time I want something to autorotate I have to enable it. The "horizontal" button YouTube App has is good as it saves me from that. But I know you watch porn and their players don't work that way.
>>62402347I'd kill for a recent smartphone (preferably with a FOSS OS like Android or GNU/Linux distro) with a sliding hardware keyboard.
>>62405211I wish netbooks hadn't died and been replaced with """"Tablet PCs""""
>>62405030>what in other phones would be screennot when you want to keep it 16:9Other phones would be much wider or you stay with the keyone's small screen and cover half of that with the virtual keyboard >>62405211so a priv then?
>>62405177I also keep it off at all times, I use newpipe and you can rotate it too, but it irks me that it would ever suggest to play a video in the wrong orientation.
>>62405235Fucking this.I have my old Acer netbook with Kubuntu and keep it as a treasure, there's nothing like it anymore. Sadly it's a bit slow for today's standards, even with Kubuntu, if there was something like this but a bit more powerful I'd buy it right now.I've had 2 tablet PCs too and they just suck. Keyboard docks are never reliable and sturdy as on a netbook, they always feel loose and most of the times they end up to not even getting able to connect to the tablet anymore. Plus the tablet thing makes them overpriced af and you always get shitty specs unless you spend a lot. Yeah, the Surface seems good, but that's a High end device, netbooks were the cheap cute thing.Plus these things are hard as hell to install linux on, since they basically have no USB drive without the dock (which sometimes isn't even recognized at UEFI level) and you're not even guaranteed it will work decently once you've put it there (thanks drivers).
>>62405235I wish it wasn't so shit ;-;
>>62405239Exactly.Backlit landscape qwerty is where it's at.-No latency-works when wet or humid, and gloves.-can type without looking-physical switch feedback with added haptic vibration-full function keys and modifiers (shift ctrl ect) -programmable macros/scripts on keys-full screen open for media including gaming
>>62405239Nah, portrait keyboard isn't as comfy as landscape.Also, the Priv was sold for an insane $750 and only got an update to Marshmallow two years late. Blackberry is since then on my shit list until the day they unlock the boot loader and good custom ROMs emerge.
>>62405351I have yaoi hands but honestly I think portrait is a lot more comfortable for keyboard at least in touch. Maybe it's just getting used to it?
>>62405304Could try Lubuntu which is ubuntu with LXDE, or install LXDE on debian/ other distro of your choice. It's quite a bit lighter than KDE but still keeps floating windows, task bar, etc. If you wanted to go full autist you could install something really really light like i3
>>62400458this thing is so goddamn sexy i'm tempted to run over my 6P
>>62405330Didn't some company release something very similar to this with a cherry-trail processor? GPD or something?
>>62405211Moto z with livermorium keyboard mod, Google it
>>62400458I have to admit it looks amazing.
>>62404631>picAre there sales figures on these yet?
>>62405392Yeah but it's not as good as pic related
>>189133998I want to go back to BB so bad. Even though my Samsung S4 has satisfied me for most things, I miss the productivity and the superior keyboard of my old BB Bold. If you were like me and you used a phone exclusively for Facebook, messaging (whatsapp, telegram...) and posting on 4chan, would you buy a new BB Passport for 150€? Or would you get a BB Keyone for 500€?
>>62405753How so? It's basically identical, but with modern hardware.
>>62400458would by if landscape
>>62405799Don't know what the anon posted but here's my opinion:The native whatsapp app has been discontinued so you have to use the android version which isn't as well implemented and some features don't work all that good (like sharing videos gives me a "please restart phone" error). Don't know about telegram, never used that.Funposting on weaboo image boards works well, clover crashes every now and then, haven't figured out dashchan yet because I can't install the extensions.If you can live with the minor inconveniences and workarounds, go for a passport, if you're a tech illiterate guy like most of my irl friends, go with the keyone
>>62405304Maybe an Elitebook 2170p?
>>62405923I misclicked, I meant to quote OP. Thank you for answering anyways. What do I need to install Android apps on Passport?
>>62406020For the things you listed, yesEither pull the apks directly if you want to avoid botnet or just install gapps and get everything* from the the play store. *if the play store shows compatibility issues get the apk somewhere else
>>62406132>>62406020>what do I needWelp, im retardedFor just installing apps you don't need anything special. Google for apks, download them, click on them and they install like any app on android.Also look up cobalt's landing page, it gives you everything you need to install gapps and how to patch apps that aren't whitelisted yet.
>>62400458*gives canadian police your encryption keys*
>>62400458That's a mighty fine 'i can't afford an iPhone X' phone right there, OP.
>>62400458Disgusting.I'm just gonna purchase my iPhone X to send nudes on and Netflix and chill with girls.You can enjoy your Xiamoiom ugly-fag device.
>>62406196>>62406132Thank you very much
>>62402243It really is amazing how you can tell what someone looks like by what kind of phones they like.In this case: 20-ish years old, American, overweight, 4/10 attractiveness at most, socially not quite capable.
>>62406466>>62406508>Thinks buying a phone marketed to women will make him popular with womenTypical iPhone owning beta
>>62406132So what version of android is it using in the back?
>>62406537>Thinks I'm buying a phone to make me popular with womenIt just goes to show how much of a fuck-ugly loser you are.>calls owning the smartphone with the most powerful chip "beta"Stay salty.

>>62406604>Thinks I'm buying a phone to make me popular with womenYeah, that's what you said you were going to buy it for.>the most powerful chipThat's not a Snapdragon 845.
>>62400458blackberry phones can't be rooted.Can they block ads?
>>62404588It's good if not on par with the passport mostly My my only two complaints are the spacebar feels a bit shit at times And you know how blackberry doesn't scroll immediately when you touch the keyboard but only half way through the first row you're swiping? Yeah the scrolling need a bit of getting used to Also battery is goat Oh and the narrowness Yeah it's a bit narrower but keys are well sized It needs getting used Imo the 4 row keyboard > 3 row keyboard in layout so personally I'm fine with the trade off
>>62406741Nice, thank you for the feedback!Can't wait for either the keyone's price or my passport to fall into a bottomless pit
>>62400458>This technology still isn't standard
>>62400458The battery, keyboard, and design are all really attractive, but I don't like how the buttons aren't virtual.
>2017>blackberry still doesn't just use stock & let people root and fuck around with shitHELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLO
>>62404650I'd agree with you until you came to the point where you said no shitty chats, my smartphone could almost be a dumbphone if you go look at the apps that I carry, but the thing that no dumbphone manufacturer has come up with yet is one that allows VOIP through "shitty messaging apps" a lot of my friends only use facebook IM and when you're talking cross countries you can't simply call them or text them directly. I guess I am stuck with a smartphone with two extra apps from default (podcast client, messaging app)
>>62403897nougat is dead os?? yeah nvm..not takin the bait
>>62407047Because they have to sell to le ebin biznis profesional who needs the added """"""""""Security""""""""" that only blackberry can provide.
>>62405124you sound like such a baby. i mostly have my phones auto rotation set to off, but let's say im watching youtube and i want to go fullscreen. the video rotates for me automatically regardless of me clicking off autorotate. plus theres the countless apps that dont give a fuck either.
Shame it runs Android, BB10 was the best mobile OS ever
>>62401739>>>62400773>Could do without the camera bump and just have a thicc phone with a thicc battery.Even the camera bump is barely there. Much less than the iPhone.
>>62402258Yes! I dropped and iPhone 7 for mine, best decision I've ever made with a phone. This shit is comfy af, especially the BLACKED Edition that I got through AT&T
>>62402443And it's pretty much guaranteed to get Oreo
>>62404336I wish they had gone with the physical navigation keys because that's my only issue with the keyone, sometimes the buttons are hard to press
>>62400458I own a BB KeyOne from release day. It's the best phone I've ever owned. Feels premium (I haven't had the screen pop problem) Wished I held out for this sexy black version though.
>>62407169They could easily release two models one stock one """"""""""""locked""""""""""""" but they won't because they're stubborn and want to lose all consumer marketshare.
>>62400458Nice modular display
>>62400458>autistic keyboard at the cost of half a screen
Using a Priv right now. Really wish they'd actually update it to Oreo. I prefer the slider design.
>>62408296Fuck, I'm almost ready. I still need to pay off my iPhone 7. I could just buy the KEYone outright right now and sell the 7 later.
>>62407159Learn to read my man Bb10 is a dead os
>>62406995Moto z play then?
>>62408521They're not even updating the priv to nougat :c
>>62408465And you need the screen why? I'd rather have a good keyboard
>>62406534No need for so much projection, NEET boy.
I realized if you get a 5.5"+ phone then screen keyboards aren't that bad.
>>62409483True patriot love in all thy sons command!
Honestly the Xperia X1 was the best phone I ever owned. The sliding keyboard was great.But nowadays I don't even use a phone anyway. Maybe I should get one of those super tiny laptop things.
>>62404650> Head cancerBeing this retarded. Do you allow just anyone to make you paranoid about subjects you've had no independent research or thought on?
>>62409483This looks like a nice bmw and the adhesive-problem of the first batch was fixed afaik
>>62406708Using FireFox, yes
>>62408712Att will take the iPhone as a trade in
>>62402168>Not only this shit can't be rooted or unlockedHow come? And why would anybody buy such a restricted and locked down device, as if the reliance on proprietary hardware and firmware of every phone isn't enough?
>>62400458>buying anything from a company that hates privacy and wants to give all your shit to intelligence agenciesshiggy diggy
>>62411770What a retard. Privacy is the whole reason governments and companies bought BB's in the first place.
>>62400458i'd get one right now if it wouldn't cost iphone money. i think i'll get priv, but this keyone makes me way more excited. it's like bb q10, except it has longer display and androidi miss my q10. i'm still suprised how well they solved its ergonomy, with comfortable rubbery back and amazing keyboard on front
>>62411770If it's a popular company, especially one that does business in the US - data is regularly being transferred over.
>>62404369Yes the battery life on this thing is phenomenal.
>>62412790not if it's encrypted. email is public and fair game though.
BlackBerry is king
>>62404369I use 13% in whole day on based Lenovo P2.
>>62412658Don't get the Priv unless you can get a really good deal.
>>62414609what's wrong with Priv? I can get used one for $250, which is relatively low price considering that for example keyone costs $720
>>62414636>keyone costs $720In what third-world country?
>>62402243Using one right now - super comfy
>>62409727This would be my dream phone with Oreo and a unlocked bootloader...I'd just want a full screen without the Dpad though.
I do miss hardware keyboards, this was my first Android device and while it was far from perfect, the keyboard was pretty comfy, but the whole hinge setup made the phone quite thick even for the time... but today I don't see the point of blackberry style keyboards.. there are a ton of great touch keyboards on android that are way more useful than a hardware keyboard with a layout you can't change other than remapping keys.
>>62400458no slide keyboard so fuck off
>>62416258physical shortcuts work when your touchscreen can't register shit like in the cold or in a steamy environment
>>62400458Useless for multilingual typing
>>62416473phonetic keymapping for foreign languages. exists on every desktop operating system and i'm pretty sure it's doable on android as well. been typing out greek and hebrew under linux, os x, and windows for years, all with an english keyboard.
>>62400458>physical keyboard>virtual home buttonswhat the hell
priv hate is best meme>£200>oled screen>amazing design>physical keyboard?>can use microsd cardThe only cons are no new android updates and it gets a little bit warm when you use it for something you shouldn't be using a phone for i.e gaming but that's about it
>>62418839They're capacitive, not part of the screen. They're always there.
>>62416258I could touchtype on my blackberry
>>62402243Bought one this year. Still A+.
>>62419399I owned a Q10 for many years but still wonder how the Passport holds up. I know the OS is super optimized to the hardware so there's probably no lag at all. Do you use Android apps too or mostly use the BB10 apps from the app store? How is social media stuff? Mostly instagram since I use that quite a bit. I'd switch in a heartbeat to the Passport but mostly I'm worried about a few apps. Personally I think BB10 beats out iOS and Android in terms of speed and functionality.
>>62405799where new passport for 150 eurodollars?where?!
>>62412658had it, amaaazing phone

>>62422715>The keyboard is a touchpadYuck!I just want to turn the touch shit off.
>>62422742You can if you want It's also not that that sensitive Swiping up and using the keyboard to scroll only works half way through the keys so you can don't accidentally scroll or autocorrect
>>62422742>>62422875If you really care I can post a vid of it
>>62422742I wish there was more utilization of the touchpad keyboard like flicking through the pictures in your gallery and pinch-to-zoom outside of the browser. Maybe even a cursor to navigate over your screen without smudging it for maximum comfy.
>>62423001That's what I'm talking about. The earlier (? the slider one) model would be perfect if it was possible to not use the touch at all. I'm not really a fan of the "smart" phones of today.Ah whatever.
>>62420918shit, i'd get this phone right now if it would be bundled with this keyboard. can i already buy the keyboard?
>>62423683Preorder on their indiegogo, it's got the support of Lenovo so it''ll happen 100%

>>62420106Just some sites I found:1) https://www.eglobalcentral.co.it/blackberry-passport-4g-sim-libero-bianco-tastiera-usa.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI9IXb98ik1gIVhhXTCh3WzggQEAQYASABEgL-GfD_BwE2) https://www.bravobuy.co.it/it_IT/product/blackberry-passport-4g-sim-libero-nero-tastiera-usa.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI9IXb98ik1gIVhhXTCh3WzggQEAQYAiABEgKbWfD_BwEI never bought a smartphone on the web, then I hope they won't be scams.
>>62406969What am I looking at, anon?
I would drop the burger bux right now if it was rootable.
>>62414636I never had one but I hear it has plenty of problems. The keyboard isn't as clicky as the classic or keyone, the software can be slow, etc
>>62419561The passport definitely rocks BB10 better than the classic does, less slowdown basically.
>>62420939That was an issue with the first batch and has been fixed now, all first batch units are free to replace as well.
>>62422875Scrolling with the keyboard actually works surprisingly well for me
>>62426741Touchscreen that raises the sections on itself corresponding to keys on an onscreen keyboard.
>>62400508>forevermore>no longer supportingFucking Googles
>>62426850I came from a passport and for some reason it took me a while adapt to the scrolling
>>62406708>>62411479I mean system wide, in all apps
>>62427289https://github.com/M66B/NetGuard/releasesInstall this, download hosts file, and enable request filtering. Be sure not to install the version on Google Play as that does not have the request filtering feature.
>>62427317nice, will keep that in mind if I ever get one
>>62423877>non-customizable keyboard Does it really matter? It has bilingual prediction A good enough autocorrect Swipe typing Customizable haptic feedback for the virtual keyboard A clipboard Etc etcHonestly if you're on Android, why aren't you using the blackberry keyboard >shit aspect ratioPriv>that's great I can agree >mix of touch and hardware buttons is retarded Also can agree
>>62427751he was talking about real keyboardthat being said, blackberry virtual keyboard is indeed cool. something about layout is done really well, it's the only virtual keyboard on which i can write without all of those predictions and other bullshit - and ctrl key is super useful
PLZ FUCKING HELPI'M GONNA BUY A BLACKBERRY PHONE BUT I JUST NEED TO KNOW IF I SHOULD GET THE PASSPORT OR KEYONE. IS THE PASSPORT STILL A RELEVANT PHONE????
>>62408402>premiumPlease explain, what is a "premium" feel. Is it the same feeling a macfag gets ? is it """"""comfy"""""" ? Fucking illiterate faggots with made up buzzwords
>>62428688Please explain what a "premium" feel is. Is this the same feeling a macfag experiences? Is it related to """"comfy""""?Fucking illiterate faggots with their made up buzzwords.
>>62402347why the fuck can't we get another one of these but with a x86 cpu?
>>62428114bbos10 is dead. i sold my q10 long time ago, i loved it in every aspect but i would never recommend it to anyone right now. you can sideload android apps and pretend that you're satisfied despite reduced performance/occasional compatibility problems, but the fact that it's dead is undeniable and os will never get better, just worse. I was buying dead devices right before their death my entire life, don't repeat my mistakes
>Screen literally falls off on its own
>>62427957I know he's complaining about not being able customize the physical keyboard but most of what's good about the physical keyboard is also present with the software one Plus the physical keyboard is mostly handled by the software one for its abilities
>>62428114This >>62428755 a hundred percent this I bought a passport this may sold it off by august on my birthday and bought a keyone with the money Save your time and just buy a keyone
>>62428797>trusting chinks on indiegogo Don't come crying to /g/ when they run off with your money >inb4 gpd Gpd is one in a million
>>62411807I still don't understand this. Will somene explain to me whats so "secure" about black berry?
>>62428874i don't know much about the subject, but long time ago i've tried sniffing packets from android phone and from bb10 device: bb10 had it all encrypted, even http sites. meanwhile, android was fully vulnerable.
>>62428832they are officially endorsed by lelnovo, shit'll be fine
>>62428973i'd rather trust hitler than lenovo, and i'm jewishit really sounds like a perfect deal though. moto x has terrible battery life or so i've heard, but except that it has all of the nerd stuff. rootable, unlockable device with proper keyboard that even has ctrl key for your nerdic needs. and chinks mumbled something about built-in battery in keyboard, that could also work.i think i'll back them up and pray for keyboard to be comfortable, then i'll get moto z when i get keyboard. In worst case, i'll just sell the keyboard on auction
>>62429046You know his driver was jewish?moto z has pretty decent battery life if you ask me. If you add the turbopower mod it becomes insane.
>>62429293i'm sure it's good with battery pack, but i won't be able to use battery pack with keyboard snapped on it. I've read in reviews that it's not really "decent" without packs, but now i checked out benchmarks and supposedly it's roughly 60-70% of my z5 compact battery life. Doesn't sound "good", but i guess it would be kinda acceptable.the more i read about it, the more i want this phone. I wanted to get Priv, but now i think i'll really gamble and back this keyboard bullshit. I just hope they won't charge some stupid money for shipping, i'd sleep better if i knew the exact amount.
>>62429553oh, it says exact amount for shipping after clicking the purchase form. nice
>>62429553Well at least I get through a day of light use with no issues at all and about 50% left in the battery. It's not as good as the Z play, but it's usable imo.
>>62400458>looks like a budget phone>650 EUR>almost $800
>>62430533This has 35 extra buttons compared to your budget phone34 of them have capacitive key capsAnd all 35 of them are illuminated >also not matching your currencies for maximum baitIt's 550 dollars here retard
>>62430758I know, and if it was the EUR equivalent of $550 I'd get it. But at this price you could get the latest iPhone instead.You'd think Blackberry would want market share and relevancy, yet they still only pander to the diehard business blackberry lover.Why even include 4GB RAM if you're just going to check your mail and browse websites?They should make a good model and price it so low that it barely brings them any profit, but their market share would increase by a ton. Then release a premium phone next and reap the profits off the bigger marketshare.If it was 350 Euro it would be competitive here.
>>62427161Yeah I'd much rather have the toolbelt from the classic above the keyboard with the physical buttons and cursor thing
>>62427317Wheres the request filtering option?
>>62428114Unless you REALLY want BB10 os, go for the keyone. You won't regret it.
>>62428934It's only encrypted from the BIS server to the phone. Beyond the server it's still plaintext up for grabs. >>62430963https://github.com/M66B/NetGuard/blob/master/ADBLOCKING.md
>>62430817Anon the keyone was never to gain market share The DTEK phones are Physical keyboards aren't competitive either You know what is competitive? Waterproofing, big displays, no bezels, low price points etc etcNobody cares about having a great typing experience enough to sacrifice roughly a third of their screen for it anymore and blackberry is fully aware of this when they sold off the manufacturing rights to TCL Blackberry will probably never make a phone with a physical keyboard ever again but in return they made a great phone for one last time Also I paid 709 euros roughly for my keyone lol Definitely would buy it again over any flagship
>>62430904Dude if anything I'd rather have individual keys on the navigation bar like here >>62404336
>that unresponsiveness>can't scroll in and out???
>>62431142You're supposed to use it in landscape mode or to position the text cursor.
>>62431171>>62431142Werks for me Also the guy is trying to zoom in with the keyboard Chrome doesn't support that
