Anomynous, 22 May 2014And then tell us how often you use the office suite?
The included office suite is one of t... morehow cheap is it?
coz its still presently sold for 34,000($216) naira uk-used here in nigeria and a difference of 5,000 naira to the price of new.
I am using this phone for the last 1 month and I thought of pointing out few things:
1) it is just so silly to even compare a OS7/7.1 device to a BB10 device. No BB7 device can come close to BB10 device when it comes to web, use speed and on-screen aesthetics;
2) you no more need BIS but you still retain same security even with a normal gprs plan;
3) even the flagship Bolds didn't have front cam, all BB10 phone have them;
4) Skype support present on BB10;
5) no more hourglass for lags;
6) majority android apps available(hassle free .apk file install)
Now coming to Q5:
1) bigger screen size than any OS7/7.1 device with much higher resolution(more than iPhone 4S retina display);
2) 2GB RAM so no "out of memory" error;
3) Dual core Krait processor for faster operations;
4) FM Radio available, 5mp decent camera with HD front cam(native Skype support);
5) much improved BBM with free voice and video calls(if supported by other handset);
6) 2nd largest battery in the BB series after Z30;
7) 1080p video recording @30fps;
8) H+ internet speeds, Wi-fi direct & NFC connectivity(country variant).
And yes, it does support whatsapp and doesn't need costly BIS plan.
In the end I have two conclusion. First, it may not be the best phone on market but it over-delivers at its price point. 2nd, no way a legacy OS7/7.1 Bold device can be compared to this handset functionality and specwise.
F!R3, 20 May 2014Couldn't agree more with what you said. Not to mention the fact that you could get this phone ... moreAnd then tell us how often you use the office suite?
The included office suite is one of the things i dislike about BB, lucky i got mine so very cheap, if i had to pay full price i would hesitate because it would be like i was helping to pay for something that i dont use, and almost noone use, like we are all contributing to a few business users who should have had their employer pay the office suite anyway and not put the expenses on regular users.
Hope theres no office suite included in upcoming BB phones or i may switch back to Xperia or iPhone where i pay for what i use, and never pay anything for what other people use.

Not to mention the fact that you could get this phone unlocked for 150 CAD and that it comes with a full (featured) office suit for FREE, that's right no need to pay an additional 30 $ for that!
