    Price sounds reasonable to me, could it really be that BlackBerry Mobile learned from the overpricing mistakes of BlackBerry.

    Not in the link.
    But that has mostly been known.
    The 625 or 626
    4 GB Ram
    Same camera module as the KEYone

    Definitely reasonable.
    But not exactly killer
    $399 would have been really sweet
    But $449 isn't bad by any means considering the battery and the IP 67 Water Resistance.

    Thank mate. I hope the SoC will be the 626 to improve things somewhat.

    Probably 499€, -100€ compared to K1, but about +100€ compared to similar devices... Not a killer price, but looks attractive to me if it has double SIM as stated in the link.

    The 626 just offers 10% more speed over the 625.
    Nothing to bother about IMO

    Yes not a killer price but pretty reasonable if you consider the battery and IP 67 rating.
    Not many phones in that price range have it.
    Heck even the 1+5 doesn't!
    Hopefully it's not a hybrid dual sim slot.
    Not really sure whether it will be coming to the US (not sure how well will carriers play to dual sim)

    Converting Dh1,699 to US$ is roughly $462. So I think it should be for $449

    I think 626 has a better modem, so signal and call quality should be better, but maybe I'm wrong.
    Still I need that +10% though

    If it has 64GB Storage, I can live with that

    10 percent is 10 percent! I'd love a 10 percent raise! Also love a 10 percent increase in my 4x4 horsepower. 10 percent is a good increment

    IPS has much lower power consumption in nearly all environments and use cases. The only exception, and it's a small one, is when you have a very dark screen (e.g. black background) with few pixels illuminated, and the overall light level (and thus drive current requirement) is small.

    IPS is also typically better on color accuracy (by quite a lot) although OLED has deeper blacks.

    I think it looks great and the price is about right.

    It’s a little thing, but I really like that logo placement. Looks great. Let’s see how it does in UAE and Saudi.

    I need one comparing it with the PRIV, which is the phone it will replace 😀
    10-08-17 12:18 PM
  24. shefiu's Avatar
    Should be very similar based on my amateur guesses. Probably about 6mm taller since the KEYone is already 2mm taller than the PRIV

    Great. I was hoping the screen would be 5.5 inches. will not be losing screen coming from Dtek 60 or Priv.

    Time to show my true DEVOTION and buy the BlackBerry MOTION!!!!
