Well unfortunately the z10 failed to sell out and there were maasive big problems with the phone making blackberry profits going down losing billions and billions of dollars.

It lead to a meltdown unless they find somebody to buy the company and improve better and make good phones that not create problems.

Dont get me wrong I see alot of people using blackberries, especially the curve 9320. I was interested in the Q5 as it was good but there were as usual bad reviews on the battery life, the camera was not coming on, i think the phone switching off etc..

but i like LG G2 its a fantastic phone with long lasting battery life. Theres loads of great reviews on this.

I think somebody bought the blackberry company and also they've signed a 5 year deal with some company to make smartphones.

I like windows phones but dont get me wrong, its a dissapointment not to have java which we need to down games that have animations and effects and other apps to function properly and smoothly.

All lumia phones dont have this since the first ever phone a few years ago.!!

All other phones from different make has the Java MDP Emulator.e

KNOX architecture as far as I know is also network dependent - be it VPN or any type of user-dependent network. If a VPN for example is not highly secured chances are KNOX security will have vulnerabilties as well.

Now is clear WHY this paid iBS "researchers report" were spread over all the media.

Read slowly: Samsung named No. 1 in enterprise on same day "huge Knox security hole" was uncovered. Samsung Knox Software is The Winner. Period.


So the iPropaganda knew it, and took precautions to minimize the effect. Pathetic.

ROTFL
Same like the
Regional lock lies
Cheating benchmark lies
Even like the "clever" transparent plot: Taiwan firm hired taiwan students to bush HTC(Taiwan) in Taiwan, and Taiwan Intelligence "discover" it.

S4 is close to perfect, I've had no issues at all with this phone. I'm not able to pinpoint why I feel S4 is so much better than S3. The screen is of course a major contributor, the speed improvements is of course also helping, but my S3 was never laggy. I think it's actually as simple as Samsung did small improvements of S3 in all respects and added the beautiful high resolution screen and ended up with S4.

They should have listened to you and pick your favourite device instead. Moan louder so that they hear you. :)

As you said sammy used to be good to user even though with tons of bloatwares. But now keeping spywares battery eater will make me say bye to sammy. I will also leave android as soon as a better alternative available. Tired of spying and crap called google play services which has no use and google made their apps dependent on it just to eat our data,money,memory and battery. They invest money on so called security whereas also put these system malwares.

HTC one or any other android devices were not approved by Pentagon mainly because they are not secured in their eyes.

Note than Pentagon tested themselves with their own experts for months before approving GS4. Tell me something that is 100% secured and cannot be hacked. :)

Oh please, when you talk about security don't even think of smartphones to do the job.

Well thats not a problem, its an over hyped report.. researchers always find holes in the softwares and manufacterers always brought update/patches to address/fix the hole.. this issue is a very minner issue, samsung will fix it soon and knox will get better n better with the passage of time... why not kaspersky made some security solution? I love their software on PC, they are really one of the best with antivirus/malware or whatever
