At least on paper, Blackberry got it right this time. Flagship hardware components, Secured Android version, QHD display with a sweet price tag will not only entice Blackberry fans but also users who want to use a secure phone with flagship specs. Camera has been Achilles heel for Blackberry phones, so the performance of the camera will determine the reception of this phone. But users should also be aware of the fact that it may be the last Blackberry made phone, so you should be dubious of the after sales support.
