BlackBerry Motion review


The BlackBerry Motion is a good phone, but it's marred by a high price tag.

Excellent battery life ; Simple and useful software ; Timely security updates ; IP67 water resistant

Sub-par performance for price ; Lackluster camera ; Expensive

The BlackBerry Motion has performance that can get you through the day, stunning battery life, and top-notch security, but it’s far too expensive.

BlackBerry Motion Smartphone Review


A BlackBerry without a physical keyboard! Nothing like this has ever happened before. The BlackBerry Motion shows that it can be done, without a physical keyboard. The latest Smartphone from the brand is based on Google's Android OS instead of the...

a lot of business and security features ; water and dust resistant case ; great battery life

disappointing camera ; relatively slow processor ; dim display

The heydays of the BlackBerry OS are long over, however BlackBerry smartphones are still going after business users - and so is the BlackBerry Motion. Unfortunately, this smartphone does not come with the latest version of Android (8.1 Oreo) and...

BlackBerry Motion Review


It's time to check out the full-touch BlackBerry Motion. Even with much more traditional-looking smartphone hardware (no physical keyboard), is there enough of a BlackBerry edge here to help the phone stand out?

Top-notch battery life ; Waterproofing is a welcome addition ; Reasonably attractive design ; Powerful BB software suite

Camera can be hit-and-miss ; Cheap-feeling home button ; Unsatisfying speaker

BlackBerry Motion review: A well built IP67-rated mid-range phone with fantastic battery life


Our BlackBerry Motion review takes a look at the fullscreen BlackBerry device which, while losing the physical keyboard, gains in an IP67 waterproof rating.

Solid design for a mid-range device ; Comfortable to hold ; Plenty of productivity apps ; Very customizable, especially with the BlackBerry Hub ; Great battery life ; Fairly decent sound

Convenience key can't be disabled ; Camera could be better ; Price could be lower considering some of the recent price cuts to higher-end phones

​BlackBerry Motion review: A business-class mid-ranger with excellent battery life


The BlackBerry Motion is the second handset to come from BlackBerry Mobile: TCL Communication now licences the BlackBerry brand for smartphones (TCL also makes Alcatel handsets and some under its own name too). The first smartphone from this deal, the...

Solid build quality ; IP67 dust and water resistance ; Useful BlackBerry software on top of Android 7.1 ; Customisable convenience button

Moderate performance ; Only 32GB of internal storage ; Average cameras

BlackBerry Motion Review: A Very Particular Set of Skills


Despite its uninspired looks, there's actually a lot under the surface that differentiates BlackBerry's latest smartphone from the horde of budget options available to Android users. But is the premium worth it?

Secure ; Long battery life ; Helpful software for productivity users ; Great display

Expensive relative to comparable phones ; Bulky, boring design ; Underwhelming specs

BlackBerry's latest Android smartphone opts for a bigger screen instead of a physical keyboard, but brings the same focus on productivity and security.

Review: BlackBerry Motion


The latest collaboration between BlackBerry Mobile and TCL is the Motion, a large slab that runs Android and boasts BlackBerry's powerful productivity tools. Mobile pros will be happy with features such as BlackBerry Hub and the Productivity Tab, while...

BlackBerry and TCL have put together a fine productivity machine in the Motion. It may be a bit on the big and burly side, but it delivers on the basics needed to keep mobile pros working all day long.

Blackberry Motion review: A KEYone without the keyboard


The BlackBerry Motion takes the DNA of the BlackBerry KEYone, adds a bigger battery, IP67 water and dust resistance, and loses the keyboard in favor of an all touchscreen design. It has all the right components to continue the momentum created by the...

Industrial design ; Metal build ; IP67 protection ; Expandable storage ; Long lasting battery life ; Stock-like Android experience with useful BlackBerry add-ons

Camera performs poorly in low light ; Limited availability
