Because people / companies buy this mostly for MDM support and relatively more deterministic security updates.

Why you bother commenting?

You will always find something to complain about because it's blackberry.

I have a motion with a lowly 600 series CPU. Can't say I'm missing anything, battery life is amazing, plays games and doesn't get toaster hot.

I'm still pissed they cancel PRIV update/support after 2 years instead of industry standard of 3. Totally contradict the security message it tried to push. And I'm not even talking about OS upgrade which BB's handler is awful in upgrading, Keyone still doesn't have a date for Pie as far as I know.

Love my motion with crazy battery life. Does everything I need it to. I don't game much anymore on my mobile devices so that's not important to me. Security updates are frequent and just a solid phone!

There are many devices out on the market for different people with different needs. It's always entertaining to look at comments from people who bash blackberry. Remember, they are for security and business function. They were NEVER big into gaming or had the specs for gaming and multimedia. It's not their focus. If you want something for that, look elsewhere.

Since when is the industry standard for security updates 3 years? Serious question.

Yup, my dad's Priv hasn't had a security update since late 2017. It's stuck on Marshmallow. Meanwhile the $120 Umidigi A5 Pro in this thread ( aliexpress-umidigi-a5-pro-120-2286063/ ) ships with Android 9.

Blackberry support sucks these days, and LOL at paying $700 for the Key2 in 2019.

I moved on to the Xiaomi Redmi Note series and haven't looked back.

Or this? Dual SIm from Amazon.

This one has no warranty... but I'm not sure about the eBay one though

Wished the coupon worked on this one though... https://www.ebay.ca/itm/BlackBerry-KEY2 ... 2382160708

I've had it on my watch list for a while... still not ready to pull the trigger... I want this phone for under $500

OnePlus and Pixel guarantee security update for 3 year and OS update for 2 year starting from release date of the phone.

My OnePlus 5 was release on N and is on P since Dec 2018. Security update is about a month more up to date than Samsung and is on Apr 2019 patch level. OP5 won't get Q but will get monthly patches (release probably at bi-monthly if the last 2 years is any indication) until Jun 2020.

Samsung won't commit but you will get 2 years at least and the only reason I got a Samsung again is their monthly update is pretty good now and they are doing more on the security front.

Of course, once everybody is on Android Q and Google will apply security patch out of Play Store, manufacturer promises may not be as crucial.

I did not catch that. Hence my question mark.
