Although the machine has a large battery, but the hardware performance is not very good, using the old processor two years ago, and the camera part of the more mediocre. More importantly, under the background of fully promoting the full screen, the design of the phone is bloated and not very comfortable during use.
BlackBerry Motion selling point is life. A large 4000mAh battery lasts up to 32 hours after a full charge, meaning that even heavy handsets can be easily used for a day. The machine also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, and built-in USB Type-C port. Only the aircraft does not support wireless charging.
Another selling point for Motion is workmanship. The machine has a very strong metal frame and soft back of the fuselage. The button section is clicked precisely and all the ports and openings are very fine. More importantly, Motion has IP67 waterproof and dustproof standards that can be safely used in harsh environments.
In other areas, the BlackBerry Motion is not too good place, with the large-capacity battery The machine is equipped with a 1080P screen, in the case of the mainstream in the 2K screen, although this seems a bit outdated, but not too large in the process of use problem. The machine only 5.5 inches screen, and the thick border, does not meet the current trend. And similar prices OnePlus 5T has no advantage, which not only has a narrower border but also 18: 9 full screen, the performance is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
12 million rear camera and 8 million front camera performance mediocre, but built-in camera applications to control the exposure time and a series of fine operation. In software mode the machine runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat system, the BlackBerry in terms of security so you do not need for your privacy concerns.
At the end of the article, foreign media editor at The Verge commented
I do not know why someone will choose BlackBerry Motion. The aircraft lacked the iconic BlackBerry features and was unable to compete with other Android phones such as the OnePlus 5T / Moto Z2 Play / Moto X4 at a price point. The only bright spot is the long life performance and safety performance, but this can not hide the performance is not strong, mediocre design, the system is old and so on.
