Design and Display

If you are someone that likes flashy things, the BlackBerry Motion may not be a perfect fit. It looks like one thick slab of metal. People who want a rugged smartphone appear to be the focus here. BlackBerry Motion has a textured feel on the rear that reduces risk of slipping. An IP68 rating means this enjoys protection against water and dust.

The device packs a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. It uses IPS technology, although some may argue AMOLED would have a better choice.

Camera and Storage

For shot-taking, the BlackBerry Motion features a 12MP primary camera that looks to supply quality shots. It has an aperture size of f/2.0. Features include phase detection autofocus and dual-LED dual tone flash. Users will be able to record Full HD videos.

An 8MP front facing shooter takes charge of selfie taking. The BlackBerry Motion offers 32 GB in onboard storage, with this being expandable by up to 256 GB.
