I currently have the Z30 and have had it for a while which is also my 9th BB. If the Leap is BBs way of new ideas and innovative ways, then it looks like I'm not buying my 10th BB phone this year at least!!!
Dual Core 1.5GHZ with Adreno 305 is not MSM8960 Pro but its an APQ806X which is actually the play series... So there's nothing wrong in choosing this CPU, and if u suggest that you would like to have SD400/410 chip, well, in performance and benchmarks, it is still running superior by a hundred or even thousand..
This phone is maybe not for HEAVY USER OR TECH WISE OR PHOTOGRAPHERS... but for a normal person like me, this phone is great... A 5inch with 720p + a loud speaker + a decent camera that is good in taking simple file or photo... Well, this maybe a phone that is only good for students or normal person....
Looks to me like one more stylish, high quality, good and reliable phone from Blackberry.
Don't full yourself with non 40 mega pixels camera and similar.
I am curious to read the official review once the phone is available.
Note: my company phone is Lumia. Experience from my colleagues is far from nice words written hear about it. Most of the experiences with Samsung phones are similar: works good for some time
Therefore make no mistakes: there is one quality phone in the market pushed out with mass products: Blackberry. Think...
Lots of trolls on here.. What don t you understand about Blackberry 10.3.1 will be on the leap. Qnx is the os Behind Blackberry 10. Blackberry 10.3.1 can run better on the leap than and Android phone with 22 cores. Its not the size that counts its the way the Os handles..
I wouldn't mind buying this phone at all, those are some good specs, as for some of you on here who say they should have a 3gb ram, bla bla bla and so on.. why dont you buy go buy an iphone 6 or 6 plus with 1GB ram lol with less than $300...
kashif, 11 Mar 2015what is the difference between lte and 4g and is it 4g phone or not?LTE, also known as Long Term Evolution, or 4G is a special frequency which can provide download speeds around 100-150 Mbps. Most of the phones these days are equiped to handle this frequency. Next step in mobile technology is 5G network which is capable to handle speeds of....7.5 Gbps...it will be a while untile then.
Lacks everything... Gorrila glass ...snapdragon..... Amoled screen..blackberry .....iiiiii hii hii...price range ....iiiihi hiiii
Don't forget people, blackberry's use .apk files so its really easy to get the play store and most of your android apps onto this!
It would have been better if it is a sub 200$ phone. 275$ for this phone is no where good. They should have put atleast snapdragon 400 atleast. I think they bought too many S4's for z10 and classic...
Many people talking here that they want SNAPDRAGON 800 3GB RAM QUAD CORE PROCESSOR AND BLAH BLAH BLAH. They forget that OS is also a kind of thing which runs your device. Actually its your os that decide how much external seizures you need to run it. BlackBerry is is more cable and optimise to run in a low specs sheet. Doctor forget window phones? So most of all it does matter is optimization because it will provide more out of the device. Your need rely on os. Not on 3gb ram and octa core processor.

Gaming & watching Videos etc., is not a problem at all with a device powered by BB10.
sam, 05 Mar 2015Why didn't they go for the Snapdragon 810 like everyone else? why dual core? :(
Also 16GB a... moreThe Leap is a Low to Mid range device, not a high end. So that explains the specs and the cheap price of $275. This device powered by BB10.3.1 will blow any Android and iOS smart phone out of the water. Good move by BlackBerry to attract people that don't want to spend an arm and a leg on Smart Phones. This Leap suits them fine.
And with BlackBerry, you get all the software and the most up to date OS, not like Android and its 50 different OS versions and its mass fragmentation.
