BlackBerry Motion is a new beautiful smartphone. It doesn’t come with a Blackberry QWERTY keyboard that we have seen in the past. But it does feature a home button.
Main specs: 5.5 inch Display, Android 7.1 Nougat, Snapdragon 625 Chipset, Octa-core Processor clocked at 2.0GHz, 4GB of RAM, 32GB Internal storage, Dual Cameras, OTG, Fingerprint reader, 1920×1080 pixels screen, Adreno 506 GPU, TF card up to 2TB and 4G speeds!
What is super impressive about this phone is the 2TB TF card extend support. Another good thing is dual camera and fingerprint reader. Two big trends that we have been seeing in 2017. I wish it came with an all-screen display as well. They are a bit behind Xiaomi, Samsung and Apple in that regard. Sony is also like Blackberry behind. But Sony will release a high-end phone 2018 with bezel less display. And the new Nokia brand will hopefully release all screen no bezel type display in 2019 with a new Nokia 9.
Another thing with this phone is how it’s running on Android instead of Blackberry’s own operating system. Just as HMD Global with Nokia brand more companies realize that if they want to compete they will have to go with Android and not their own operating system.
This phone cost the price of around the same as you can get Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 for. I only wish it also had water resistance. I really hope they will upgrade it to Android 8.0 Oreo in the future. Which is currently the latest version of Android OS.
This is also a Dual SIM Dual Standby smartphone. The SIM card size is nano and you also get a 3.5mm audio jack. I’m happy they haven’t removed that option like Apple did with the iPhone X. In terms of camera you first on back get a 12.0MP variant and on the front you get an 8.0MP camera.
