This is a phone designed for selling in mass to corporations. If you are a casual user of smartphones: email, youtube, calls, text messaging, then you'll have no problems with this phone whatsoever. Blackberry's additional software is actually useful, and provides lots of information regarding the security of the phone.
If you are a heavy phone user, get an external battery. Blackberry phones are designed to be bricked if you try to root it. If you are a gamer, then this device is clearly not designed for that.
Hi. Fonts on my device suddenly changed after connecting to the Net. Any solutions please?
ubom52, 16 Feb 2017Pls is the phone good for gaming and does the battery last? If yes how many hours does it take... moreBlackberry is known for productivity, security and corporate usage.
If your expectations are of games and battery life then it's better to chose a gaming console ( for games) and Xiaomi Note 4 phone ( same SoC and massive battery)
Hopefully this will help you.

Ciao 4 Now
I am using this phone for last 5 months.... Nice phone for its price. Initially I was bit skeptical about this phone when I purchased... but find to be very satisfied.
BlackBerry rocks. I had several models for past 10 years. Would not change it for anything else. Ever. Never. BlackBerry fans know what I am talking about. My family has 4 phones, 4 different brands. So, my 3 family members have awesome phones, apparently. They laugh at me and my BB but: one dropped the phone - has broken screen, one has no pics flash anymore after kids dropped it, one has dead speakers already. All 3 phones about 1 year old. And my BB? Guess what? Dropped it million times (no protection case at all) and screen still looks like knew. I listen to music loud as loud as can be and still has great sound, pictures still great, love the SD option, 16GB phone but 10GB still free and phone is loaded. Battery life great (charging it at night only and I use this phone a lot). Had this phone for almost 3 years. Battery problems (like overheating) happened once and phone started acting. Bought battery for $40 and BB became a brand new phone. And I am only talking about BB Z10. I don't have a reason for new phone yet but if I decide to get one in the future it will be definitely BB AGAIN.
Pathetic phone..had to sell 1 day after I purchased..slow internet..rubbish customer service..went to 3 different places as advised for service centre and all the service centres have been shut down..amazing bb experience which I had in bold 3 has been rugged off..end of BlackBerry
BlackBerry should bring in phones less than 5in. Like Apple.
The will sell like hot cakes.
Most of the users will agree that handling above 5 inch phones are still a nuisance.
Think about it BB.
