    What is the essence of having a mobile phone? Simple. Communication. Text messaging, email, chat, phone calls; these are the essentials. Having excellent applications (that you do not have to download) like Docs to Go is a pretty awesome bonus. Blackberry phones are for people like me who values productivity, secure communication, and of course, keyboards. Have been a 4 year BB user and I do not regret having one. My Bold 9900, Curves 9380 and 9320 still serves me wonderfully.

    Leap will be one of my choices for a new BB phone. I can only dream of Passport and Classic but thank Heavens if I can own one of them.

    Soar High, BLACKBERRY!!!

    Pretty. Ito yung mga phone na proud ka talagang i-display sa school/workplace.

    But for the specs… this should be priced around 10-12K

    SD S4 Plus??? Mukhang madaming leftover chipsets ang BB a. I like BB but they’re just priced too high.

    Parang mas mababa (mas luma) pa sa processor nung first edition na Nexus 7 yan. Bago ba yan? Weird choice ng processor.

      Oh God, please stop with nonsensical criticism. Comparing bb to android phones is like comparing a bicycle versus a car. A bicycle as we all know only requires you to pedal and would not incur any parking or gas damage to your wallet wherein a car can go at fast speeds but will cost you a fortune.

      P.S. I’ve been an android fan since the beginning so don’t try to blabber features and apps not available to bb.

      ^Huh? So you’re saying that BlackBerries aren’t supposed to hurt your wallet right? But this shit costs $275, comparing it to equivalent models of Asus, Sony, Meizu and Xiaomi. Let’s not even talk about OEM phones.

    • Avatar for Conceited Bastard Conceited Bastard says:

      I’m saying they cater to different markets i.e. corporate support phones since bb is still the most secure os up to date

      If you value quality apps go for apple, if you want customization go for android and if you want messaging services & communication go for bb. I hope I made it clear for you.
