Better off getting an old cheap Z10 released in Jan 2013. It has better spec (e.g. screen) than this 'Leap' and runs BB OS 10.3.1 after update.
Yes BlackBerry phones can run well on lower spec than other phones due to the OS, but if they had a 2015 spec phone they would be so fast it might be worth getting.

can't understand rsn behind so low scoring in design features etc
Much reliable smartphone on it's way to marketplace
sinan, 17 Mar 2015My frnds told me this phone is heating.isn't it?I am sure the phone is hot.
i wish market price for blackberry leap is below $200 usd and i would gladly to buy it
Blackberry 10.3.1 OS is super cool and smart. All it needs now is a breakthrough in design ! Leap is no ground breaking design either ! so BB hire a new designer
Aspencade65, 15 Mar 2015I currently have the Z30 and have had it for a while which is also my 9th BB. If the Leap is B... moreI agree my brother. Nothing is special nor new about Blackberry Leap. Is an old Blackberry dressed in new clothes

With this device there is nothing new which appears to have been invented specifically for this device,except the new OS platform. In many of this device' parts are a repititions of previous models the super famous Z10 and small scaled Z30 phablet which is Z3
Very disappointed about this device. It was assembled using the hardware of both the famous Z10 and the z30 miniature handset Z3.
I notice very small development and improvement in this device except the new OS platform. This time Blackberry and her engineers didn't have something to put on the table and impress us her conzumers and fight her rivals.
I'm a big fan of blackberry and I use one but this does not mean I'm a businessman nor a office going professional. I am extremely sad to say I'm disappointed with the specifications of this device. I know a dual core processor is enough to keep BB10 os running but as a consumer I'd expect more. From my experience using Z10,which runs on the same processor, I have to admit that the processor it not that capable of running android apps simultaneously smoothly. In my opinion they could have gone for a Snapdragon 400 or even a 410. I don't know whether it is foolish for me to say this, but I think BB can do better if they make processors by themselves like samsung and apple does. I think it's about time that they understand WHAT THE CONSUMER NEED and not what they expect the consumer to do with a BB.
Wishing Blackberry a good future.
25 hour "talk time" battery life... this will outlast most tablets. Sign me up please.
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2015......Bb is not bad at all, the only problem is that not all android apps run smooth and I hope with this edition they sorted out the battery overheat problem my Z 10 gets very hot on my new sony z3 I miss the bb keyboard and the minimized screens that is right on the main screen the leap is basically a z10 with bigger battery and lte (4g)not too shabby!
