Keypad is Tiny, Size should have been at least 5". Price and Resale are opposing words, no resale for BB. If Gpu Cpu should have been latest, price could be justified. Not Alone BB marking would Sell. Sub contractors from BB would have to Sacrifice Margins to Revive Trust and Confidence. Again last straw in BB History!

if you read my previous post, you will see that we are in the same page.

In fact why do people play games when a console with proper controllers is magnitudes better. Lets watch the latest James Bond movie on a tiny screen I just don't get it.
Anonymous, 12 May 2017Isn't this phone a 625 and not a 615 like the one you referenced in your youtube link?typo!
still are very similar at benchmarks.

Superb smartphone. Fear of lower performance is no more. Ram management is great. 625SD performance is better than that of SD821(LG 6),835(S8). Watched speed test here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CQbc2D4lY7s
It's available in India next month. Confirmed.

I stand corrected on how powerful the SOC. The point I'm making is, its as good as needs to be for what the device is geared towards. What I don't understand is where people find the time to waste on playing games?

what you haven't mention is the odd screen ratio which is not suitable for multimedia purposes like gaming, movies, etc... now if you try to be rational what I say is right but I sense you are trying to push the device over what it is meant to be!
but then again since you agree with what I'm saying you are ok! I guess!

Its only powering a 1080p screen as well. This phone can do it all barring watching movies for hours on end. I'm sure people have a thing called tablets for that though.
AnonD-656940, 11 May 2017Honestly, people need to question why they need a Snapdragon 835. It's the same sort of people... moreExactly. Its just people wanting to able to brag to their mates at the pub saying how they've got the latest and greatest. What really matters is quality and experience. BB have nailed this phone and I'm informed that it has sold out in the UK. How true that is or to what factors are behind that is another story but on paper thats a good sign for BB. We need them to do well and bring competition back to the market because Samsung and Apple are just trolling us with incremental updates. They aren't pushing hard because there is no reason to.
