Design and display


Ready for anything

The BlackBerry Motion is a hardy device, with its anti-scratch display, coated in layer of nano-diamond crystals. It’s also the first BB device to be protected against water and dust, with an impressive IP67 certification. 

Big and beautiful

A 5.5-inch display fronts the smartphone, with the home button underneath, emblazoned with the iconic BlackBerry logo. You’ll be able enjoy top quality visuals with the Full HD resolution, making movie-watching on the go that little bit more enjoyable.  



Wide aperture for better shots

A 12MP camera is mounted on the back of the smartphone for photos and videos you’ll be proud to show off. There’s a wide f/2.0 aperture to let in loads of light, and a dual-tone LED flash so you can get great photos at night too. 

Wide-angle selfies

You’ll have no problem getting all your friends in a selfie together with the BlackBerry Motion’s wide-angle front-facing lens. The 8MP camera has an 84-degree field of view, so you can leave that old selfie stick at home. 

Under the hood

BlackBerry’s biggest battery ever

At 4,000mAh, the Motion lays claim to the largest battery ever put inside a BlackBerry smartphone. With such a large capacity, you’ll be able to get around two-day worth of usage. And when it does come time to power up, you won’t be waiting around for long with USB Type-C fast charging.

Powerful processor

Alongside the impressive battery, there’s a 2.0GHz octa-core processor and 4GB RAM for a speedy user experience. You’ll never be slowed down when watching high-res films or playing your favourite games, and with such a large screen, you’ll be able to use two apps at the same time.

BlackBerry Motion is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good battery life and that's it Phone itself isn't that bad but you can find a lot better devices. Cons: - notifications not working - BB is taking care of all notifications, it captures everything coming to you but it's failing to show it. Only way to find out if someone sent you anything on whatsapp, FB, messenger etc is to open an app - auto update system is a joke and BlackBerry know about this issue for at least year and a half - what they do? Nothing! Not a single update to sort it out. Their advice is to hold power button for 32 sec until memory wipes out and settings are restored. It will work fine with updates for another hour or so. Then back to square one. Pros - Battery life

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just awesome what more can I say had phone for over 6 months now and still very pleased i have had on average between 2 and 4 days battery life depending on usage, heavey use 2 days light use 4 days. the Camera is very good despite the negative reviewsits the same Camera as on the google pixel that won awards previously. out of the box running Nougat and since had update to Oreo personally I prefered Nougat but thats just me. all in all I love this phone it feels good in the hand and does everything that Samsung or iphone does but a third of the price. when ever I use an app that uses my microphone or camera without my knowledge the Dtek software built in warns me and if its whatsapp that needs permission I just click allow and move on if its a game that has no right it warns me and I delete the Game. as for playing games and watching videos I have had no problems despite again the negative reviews, maybe its because I am not a serious game player but I watch alot of youtube and so far absolutely no issues there. I even use this phone to stream Movies to my TV and again no issues so if you want a cheap costing phone that does everything you need and more then this is thephone for you, it just doesnt come with the pose factor lols

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome phone Battery lasts ages an the camera despite reviews is great as it is same camera as the Google pixel that won awards. You can customise the battery usage unlike Samsung or iphone to extend battery life. Professional reviewers seem to slate blackberry phones unfairly for the money (less than half the price of the latest offers from either Samsung or iPhone) you get a phone that does everything that others do at a MUCH lower cost and a MUCH better battery life and the inbuilt security is better than any third party anti virus. This phone does everything it says on the tin. If you are a gamer maybe not but if you dont play games on your phone then this beats all other phones on their market today. Every review says this phone is a business phone I disagree it's a phone for people that don't play games and don't want to be looking for a plug socket at 5pm everyday. If you want to know more please reply to my review
