[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Is it now worth spending $275 (INR ~17K) on the Blackberry Leap which is using an outdated Processor?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.
The BlackBerry Leap should cost Rs 22000 to 24000 if you see the global prices.Specification wise looks attractive.
y install Android apps through sideloads or taking apk if you can install Google Play Store right in your Blackberry 10 devices running 10.3.1 update...which runs n support Android 'L'. 99% of the Play Store Apps are supported.
Update BlackBerry contact me, told me to format my SD card inside my BlackBerry Leap instead of my PC , so I saved all my pics videos, music , on my PC in a folder , then I format my SD card, and everything works , am happy now I can Save my playlist
I own this device and loving it only issue I have is making my music playlist by Saving it , an error message shows up ,I already contact BlackBerry . They are working on this issue, but if anyone knows how to fix this pls help , I already tried taking memory card, turning phone off then back on , connect to the computer went on BlackBerry link . Nothing still can't save my playlist
i was using Android, but moved to a BB Q10 6 months ago. I will stick with Blackberry... and the leap might be nice, i will check it out. Android is just becoming a piece of spyware... and blackberry focus is messaging... information consumption for me is laptop / desktop, browsing the web on a phone isn' t all that...

Aslam, 02 May 2015sir this mobile battery is non removable one time battery dead how this change batteryWell, you can always take it to a BlackBerry support center and get it replaced. On the other hand, if you feel a bit adventurous, you can do it yourself after buying the battery. There are enough tutorials available in youtube if you look for it.
FYI, I myself have replaced the complete frets and keyboard of an old BlackBerry 9870 and the display and synthesizer of a BlackBerry Z30. It was fun indeed, especially after some tense moments the phone starts up :)
