Anonymous, 08 Apr 2016I read comments about bad battery? This phone has a great battery! The Z10 had a low power bat... moreI really do not care about the other reviews let me give you an honest opinion.
In a country where more than half the people use android and the richer, less sensible halves would spend half an lakh and buy tiny storage iPhones, this BlackBerry device offers a pleasant break and turns heads wherever I go.
The OS has tiny tit bits that no other OS offers be it picture lock or tiny little things that people who review this phone without using it. It gives you all the information at your finger tips in one quick swipe or gesture. every single action can be done quickly and efficiently only if you know the tricks. And the phone never seems to stop surprising me with little bits of detail that BlackBerry has never missed out. They probably designed the OS with a 'what would I wanna see next point of view'. The OS also runs android apps and agreed not all android apps but just the few games, pedometers, utility apps etc that I need. Any app that does not need Google Play Services should run on the device. I play heavy games and also run multiple apps at the same time. It may lag once in a very long while but only for a fraction before resuming and I'm very very happy with it. The email on BlackBerry is the best I've ever ever worked with and only one thing seems to drive the phone ' simplicity and efficiency'. The Hub is a beautiful something where instead of swiping away notifications they're always there at all times when I wanna see them. I can see them all at once or category wise or unread ones only and what not. The typing experience is unmatched and I will never love another keyboard the way I do this phone's where I just swipe left on the keyboard to delete and press shortcuts like l t without the space and hit space to display the current time (8:54:36 AM) and million other shortcuts that I'm sure even I don't know fully.
Moving on to the hardware I don't get what brick is being spoken about. See the pictures the design is beautiful. When the screen is sleeping the entire front is pitch black and you don't even see the demarcation between the screen and the bezel which makes it really attractive. The symbol itself has turned a few many heads and trust me. I have dropped this phone a million times from varied heights and nothing really happened. It works as great as new even today.
Sorry for being a bit lengthy but honestly this is one of the best phones I've ever had and I've had good phones trust me. I am not only in love with it but I'm proud of it and flaunt it wherever I go. If you're thinking of buying this phone think about it.. you could be giving up being a part of the herd. You may give up some apps and you may get a lot of criticism. But when you're using the phone and blazing through all the tasks, it'll be worth it :)

TY, 20 Mar 2016I have been given a blackberry Leap for work, its quite bulky for your pocket, the touchscreen... moreDude or however you before you comment about a device you dont know learn it first, you just making a fool of yourself.
aditya, 09 Apr 2016Which phone will be better leap or I phone 5s ...please answer me..Am also confused in this 2phones
Hiii im going to buy a phone but im confused in this 2phones iphone5s or blackberryleap please tell fast
Your opinion is priceless for me.
I read comments about bad battery? This phone has a great battery! The Z10 had a low power battery, but is nothing compared to this beast. Do not confuse them. This one can last easely two full days before getting empty.
Also a pleasure to work with. Very stable, comparing to some (or even a lot) price related Android based devices. Can run most (>95%) Android apps without an issue.
If you're looking for an affordable and very stable smartphone, don't look any further.
Kindly, dont buy this phone.. You may be tempted like me to get one.. But dont burn your pocket. It is an utter waste of money.. They give you access to android app store, but the apps will not work..Even skype doesnt work. BB fellows must be such a crack, to have deviced a software which does not have the necessary basic apps. Google maps will not work properly.And to top it all, when I tried to sell it through reglobe, the phone model is not displayed in their list.
If you need functionality and ability to us multiple basic platforms your better off going with an ancient flip phone then a blackberry device. I have the leap and it is a complete pathetic waste of money. I actually handed mine back in to cellular services at work convinced there was a problem with it because it's so slow, locks up and takes an eternity to send and receive. Don't bother looking at any kind of video because it locks up or won't play. The screen motion lags so badly words can't describe. Any phone and I mean absolutely ANY phone can out perform a blackberry. blackberry are made for the seriously elderly people that fear technology and want it to move as slowly as possible.. the internals of BlackBerry have not changed since early 2000. So if your looking for complete garbage that can't utilize any apps and the simplest functions cause it to jam then BlackBerry is for you..
It is a very good phone, but battery performence is not so impressive.
Aditya, 29 Mar 2016Can I use normal internet plans in leap..is it working without blackberry internet plans.. yes you can

BB10Z30, 21 Mar 2016Get a life dude. Another brainwashed comment from obviously someone who doesn't know how to us... moreBB 10 is a best gesture OS. So does no need to have home and back icon just swipe it. Fltp the device to save power, mute call and many more. Have it will love it. Best OS ever use. Love BB10 forever. Lack of apps not a big issue for me. All social apps available here.
