Blackberry recently launched its Blackberry Motion phone. This phone is a successor of Blackberry KEYone series. In Blackberry KEYone physical keyboard is provided with the touch display. Presently, there are a number of phones such as Mi A1, Honor 7x, Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime & Jio Phones ruling the Indian markets. To compete with these, Blackberry Motion is coming with the whole new features and improved processor.
Now, in this phone, the company has eliminated the physical keyboard and improved the specs. I think physical keyboard is an iconic feature of Blackberry but there are rumors that most of the followers are not satisfying with this feature.
So the question is, how does it feel to hold a Blackberry phone without its physical keyboard? Does it give the feeling of an ordinary Android phone or it’s better than that? Check out the conclusion at the end of this post.

- One thing that you have to praise Blackberry, they are not afraid to do something different. In an era where bezel-less displays, dual cameras, and curved, smooth pebble-like designs are all rage, Blackberry motion gives those trends a hard competition
- Blackberry Motion goes for more industrialized forms with rounded edges and metal sides, which are completely flat. The only exception is the topmost part of the phone, there is some type of curvature.
- The back has an unclean carbon fiber pattern that looks not only good but also soft for the touch and gives the phone a lot of holds.
- The fingerprint sensor is fast and very accurate to unlock, but again it was weird to use a phone with the physically clickable home button. This Home button also acts as a trackpad, which gives access to the notifications shade with a sub-down and a app drawer with a swipe-up.
It comes with a 5.5 inches screen with full IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display. It has 1080 x 1920 pixels, 16:9 ratio (~403 ppi density) resolution.
Inside, Blackberry Motion has the same Snapdragon 625 processor and 4 GB of RAM as Blackberry KEYone, it can be a bit disappointing if you were expecting the flagship-level specifications. Although it is not the most powerful smartphone on the market, and whenever it comes to norms, Motion still performs admirably in day-to-day use. When the phone is under heavy loads or you run multiple applications at the same time, you will sometimes see a lacking. But more than daily tasks such as launching applications, checking email web browsing, or playing low graphical games, Motion is more than capable
- Industrial design
- Metal build
- IP67 certified: water and dustproof
