Zero Value for Money. BB got it wrong again. I dont know who is guiding BB for pricing the products in extremely price sensitive market like India. I have been a BB user for past 5 years and was waiting for a good BB device at affordable price for last 8 months and finally shifted to Windows last week. I guess the decision was right after knowing the price of leap in India. High time BB, get rid off your marketing Manager in India...

abhi, 08 May 2015do the bb phns run with nomal internet plans?Yes it will run. Most likely android apps will run well and you can even install Google play store.
Blacberry||O||, 28 Mar 2015yes educated working persons............only for messagingEducated also means people who take the time to read about things. If you had done, we won't have to tell you BB OS 10 is the only real time os out there.

No lag at all and I have never had a brain freeze that would require battery removal. Android phones have been a nightmare for that in my experience. The BB 10 OS is based on QNX micro kernel so it is extremely reliable. Excellent business tool, especially the Hub.

[deleted post]This, BlackBerry Leap I the next successful smartphone. Not interested translates to not earning.
Ankit PRAJAPATI, 08 May 2015Blackberry Leap is built using the 3 year old Processor "Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8... moreIt has outdated processor which is not good for the price. But BlackBerry told that leap will be getting updates too. Leap and classic have same processor so the updates will be getting for sure.
As a z10 user I thought that Snapchat s4 won't be good at all but the phone was fluid. You won't believe unless you use for Phone. It works nice with her latest BlackBerry OS. The only problem is when playing games like Asphalt8 or mortal kombat it doesn't seem well.
Ankit PRAJAPATI, 08 May 2015Thank you very much for making it more clear. But this would be the first time I would be havi... moreAny time. You should understand certain things about a BlackBerry 10 phone. There are lot of fun applications might be missing from BlackBerry 10 OS ( I mean native application to the OS). Android apps ( those don't require google integration ) work in a fashion , but you can expect some slutter and performance issues if you use resource hungry android apps - aka games.
But the platform is an excellent communication tool. The subtle features built in the OS is oriented towards productivity. I have been using BlackBerry 10 phones for two years, and one thing they don't do is lag or hang. If I may use an analogy, a BlackBerry is like a 125CC bike or a 1000 cc car . They get the work done, take you reliably from point A to point B and gives good fuel economy. But don't expect them to win a race or to perform stunts :D.
Still, Leap is a new entrant, so not sure about the performance. You might want to wait for a couple of months and see the reviews ( not junk reviews, but written by people who purchased it - certified buyers)
I have a BlackBerry Z30, and it is an excellent business phone.My opinions are based on a Z30's useage.
Remesh, 08 May 2015At the first glance, the facts you stated may sound dreadful. But the million dollar question ... moreThank you very much for making it more clear. But this would be the first time I would be having a Blackberry device. Till now I was only using Android devices. I am looking at Blackberry as a Business phone and not as an Multimedia phone. So what do you suggest? My main concern is will Blackberry become lag in few months. Asking this because no matter how costly you buy any Android device, it lags after some period of time.
[deleted post]At the first glance, the facts you stated may sound dreadful. But the million dollar question would be what one wants from a phone. Nowadays a smartphone with highest 'specs' is a fashion accessory. But there are people who see the utility of the smartphone alone. BlackBerry 10 is capable of delivering the "smartphone" aspect pretty well - that is it does not need the monumental specs of other platform. No hanging, no lagging and smooth transitions. So, instead of focussing just at the 'specs' aspect, it would be good to visit a shop, see if Leap fits into the definition of your needs and take a decision. That is what I would do. But if you are looking at at the novelty aspect alone, then I think BlackBerry Leap may not be for you.
Ain't it easy to decide?
Blackberry Leap is built using the 3 year old Processor "Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960" which was released in Jan 2012.
Is it now worth spending $275 (INR ~17K) on the Blackberry Leap which is using an outdated Processor?
I mean how long will it be able to survive in the Market and how would be the Performance?
For how much long will the Leap users get the update?
I am still confused with the above questions. Hope anybody might be able to help me.
Thanks in advance.
seems like rubbish to me. come on blackberry, where is your imagination? go run wild a bit. you keep releasing the same this all this while without even impress me as an X-blackberry user. i know blackberry is meant for professional businessmen, but at least create some high end phone.
