Gojek is popular in Indonesia. If you are in Indonesia and the drivers, anyone of them using BlackBerry OS 10 phones? I say no, the most their phones are Android phone, because the Gojek apps itself concentrate for Android or iOS. I had ever once using BlackBerry Z10. Well, the performance was good, but when I would like to use Gojek, the Z10 was useless, couldn't use Gojek, said "no Google services" So, I back to Android at that time. Android phone meet my needs, I could use Gojek, I could use Grab (the Grab app is updated too), Skype, Akulaku (no BlackBerry OS 10 has Akulaku app in BlackBerry World. Akulaku is important for people don't have credit card but want to buy item by installment payment). And how about Kredivo? I never find Kredivo app in BlackBerry OS 10, but Kredivo is available in Android and iOS. Kredivo app is application for people who would like buy item by installment payment.
So, in high thinking, people who use Android phone is not categorized he/she use the phone to install everything of apps, but also communication. Those apps are just for their help to meet their needs.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2018But not everybody likes this childish cheap OS, full of viruses android!Right, not everybody like Android. But, in my opinion and high thinking in my many thinking, Android is not childish OS. Many, and much users from Indonesia use Android and they don't complaint for viruses vulnerable and they don't care if their Android phones vulnerable i viruses or not. I have use many Android phones, from Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Note II, LG Optimus G, Sony Xperia TX, Motorola RAZR XT910, Huawei P8lite, Xiaomi Redmi 2A, Xiaomi Mi 4c, Vivo V5, Motorola Z Play, LG G2, Xiaomi Redmi 5A, Vivo V5 Plus, no virus. The most people in my region are prefer Android, customize able, apps. Use Gojek, use Grab for delivering foods, for transportation. I have ever used BlackBerry Z10, I am Gojek user too and that BalckBerry OS can't help my need in using Gojek app. How does BlackBerry OS 10 solve users who use Gojek app? They choose Android for better Gojek app in using.

Archy, 18 Apr 2018Buying Leap in 2018, Is it worth a shot ? I dont prefer android will it help on that case ?The problem is BB OS is already obsolete in 2018. BB already moved to android. They will close their BB app store in 2019 and leave without any answer many customers who don`t like now to move to the childish, cheap, full of viruses android OS. The same made Microsoft with their Windows Phone OS. So unserious companies when people pay a lot of money to buy their devices!

BB Leap is the worst phone I've ever owned. Had 3 in the last 15 months. Keep having to get it fixed. Slow and easily freezes-up. Volume so back one can't hear the ringer and/or caller. Can't get money back after purchasing.

BlackBerry Leap for sure is the worst BB ever. It's a real disaster and waste of money. Very slow and nothing works well. Some necessary apps are not available and the available ones are super slow. I regretted buying this piece of crap big time. Please DO NOT make this mistake and DO NOT buy this good for nothing device.

I have one of these phones from Sept 2015 and over last few months whatsapp not been possible as the device says it no longer supports whatsapp.....
Any ideas what happening here (sorry for pun!!) or where I am going wrong?
Recently bought this phone. Great battery life, crisp display, not the greatest camera or the fastest cpu, but it gives you that elegant feel, not very expensive for a great phone. I had Google play installed in a snap, downloaded whatsapp10 and whatsapp10 fixer from blackberry world, and withing minutes I had whatsapp up and running at its prime. For all of those who comment negatively about this phone, talk is cheap, experience is what counts.
Anonymous, 18 Apr 2018Should I buy leap in 2018?
I don't know if you will read this, but I wanted to respond anyway.
I purchased the phone recently but there's a few things to consider. The battery drains very fast compared to recent phones, the lack of major apps and a slightly outdated Web browser.
But if you can live with those it's a very smart and snappy little phone with great messaging and call quality.
If your tired of Android or ios I'd say give it a go!
You may just love it!
