BlackBerry Motion

 

BlackBerry Motion review: Should you the new BlackBerry device without a keyboard? Read our in-depth review to find out how it compares.

Useful software additions ; Excellent battery life

Ageing CPU ; Disappointing low-light photo quality

The BlackBerry Motion has a single 12-megapixel camera on the rear of the handset, neatly stepping around the kind of dual-lens zooming and background blurring some mid-range phones now offer.

BlackBerry Motion review: The big boss of business

 

With a focus on productivity and security, in a water/dust-resistant design that looks the business, combined with a battery that outlasts most

Solid design looks the business ; Light and thin build ; BlackBerry's software and security features are useful ; Versatile software keyboard

Camera needs improvement ; Bottom bezel is really big ; Logo on home button is unsightly ; Performance a little stuttery at times

With a focus on productivity and security, in a water/dust-resistant design that looks the business, combined with a battery that outlasts most others, the BlackBerry Motion is a sensible choice for BlackBerry fans who want to move away from physical...

BlackBerry Motion review

 

A lot more smart/casual than strictly business

Restrained looks with quality build ; Decent performance, with excellent battery life ; All the trademark BlackBerry software

Software can be overwhelming ; Camera only average ; Still a niche device

The most mainstream BlackBerry for a long time has fan-favourite apps and features, but won’t scare off anyone that doesn’t spend all their time in the office

BlackBerry Motion review: My, how the mighty has fallen

 

After the Keyone failed to impress, can the all-touch BlackBerry Motion win over a BlackBerry-less generation?

Long-lasting battery life ; A handful of useful software features

Clunky design ; Lacklustre performance ; Low-light camera performance could be better

Instead I’d recommend BlackBerry do what Nokia did a few years back: take a break, pull its best minds together and come up with something actually worth buying as part of a grand resurgence. Or, failing that, maybe it’s time to let the past die.

BlackBerry Motion Review: A brilliant blend of BB and Android?

 

The BlackBerry Motion packs plenty of appeal, from its massive battery and feature-stuffed camera tech to its unique security-focused software. Our full review follows several...

Excellent battery life ; Feature-packed OS ; Water resistant

Lacks sex appeal ; Limited performance

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...

BlackBerry Motion review: Running in place?

 

A functional, no-frills phone with little to entice

Affordable; Strong range of security features; Good battery life;

Underwhelming performance; Average screen; Unimpressive design

While it may have a wallet-friendly price and a respectable battery life on its side, there's not much else to recommend the BlackBerry Motion. It's functional, but it isn't particularly impressive.

Review: BlackBerry Motion

 

I like that the BlackBerry Motion is built for real world situations. It doesn't need to be babied, you can get by without case. This is such a refreshing departure from the current slew of ultra-expensive, super delicate glass flagship smartphones...

Battery life as well as the QuickCharge 3.0 functionality make the BlackBerry Motion a workhorse smartphone that can weather the longest wordays and nights. This smartphone has so many unique features that we can only hope can become standard, not just...

BlackBerry Motion Review: Hands On First Look

 

I don't exactly have a long history with BlackBerry, I pretty much skipped over the whole phenomenon in favour of Android-based devices, which were my introduction into the smartphone world.
