BlackBerry Leap: Affordable 5-incher lacks Z30 charm (hands-on) - Pocket-lint

 

We knew that BlackBerry was going to use Mobile World Congress to talk about future devices and it announced the Leap, alongside a tease of a whacky slider

BlackBerry Leap review

 

A revamped version of the Z10

Has 2GB of RAM ; Great design ; Impressive battery life ; It's affordable

The aged processor

The BlackBerry Leap is affordable, but not cheap. It looks expensive and sports a smart design and good battery life, but the processor is an oddity. Overall, it's a solid, rather impressive piece of kit.

BlackBerry Leap Review: In Depth

 

Blackberry Leap review: we take a look at the Blackberry Leap, possibly the last all-touch device to run BBOS 10 natively.

Improved OS ; Surprising cameras ; Decent battery life

Middling design ; Average screen ; No NFC

We’ve reached the final leg of the Leap’s review with an air of surprise surrounding us. On paper the BlackBerry Leap appears to be a little unimaginative from a design perspective, conservative from a hardware perspective and out of touch with regards...

BlackBerry Leap review: Ditches the keyboard, but offers little for those who aren't BlackBerry fans

 

The BlackBerry Leap tries to appeal to younger businesspeople by forgoing a keyboard, but it lacks the app developer support it needs to stand out as a smartphone.

The BlackBerry Leap smartphone is a plain workhorse with BlackBerry's productivity and security pedigree.

The Amazon app store is missing many popular apps found on Google Play, or Apple's iOS app store.

The BlackBerry Leap ditches a physical keyboard to lure folks looking for a modern smartphone experience, but a lack of apps and a lackluster camera keep this device behind the competition.

BlackBerry Leap review: A new phone with old internals

 

Can BlackBerry's new phone persuade consumers to jump the Android ship?

Having said all that, there are plenty of people for whom the BlackBerry Leap would perform a perfectly good job. It does messaging very well, battery life under light use is exceptional, and general performance is adequate. The display is...

BlackBerry Leap review

  (Rating Hidden)

Powered by its own BlackBerry operating system, the BlackBerry Leap is aimed at those who want an alternative to Android or iOS handsets. BlackBerry claims it's both 'modern and powerful' in design. It survived our scratch test, but is it really a...

BlackBerry Leap

 

Curiously billed as a device for

Well built; Solid all round specs; Strong price point; Rich enterprise ecosystem

A tad heavy; Heats up slightly; BB10 OS not for everyone

As an everyday device, the Leap truly thrives, armed with a great screen and strong processing capability, the "Startups" it's intended for will have a solid mid-range smartphone.

Review: BlackBerry Leap

 

The biggest feature of the BlackBerry Leap is its long-life battery. The 2800 mAh battery is rated to last for well over a day of heavy use and is the primary reason for the phone's solid feel, weight and size. BlackBerry boasts that the Leap can last...

The BlackBerry Leap is a no-nonsense midrange smartphone which brings the latest BB10 software running on a somewhat dated processor, but performance doesn't seem to suffer at all.

BlackBerry Leap review: A Leap that falls short?

 

Has the smartphone maker done enough to differentiate itself from rivals?

BlackBerry fans will be accustomed to the OS; BlackBerry Hub is handy and efficient; Decent brightness and contrast

Poor design quality; Limited app selection; Slow, underpowered hardware; Disappointing battery life

BlackBerry's latest device is a disappointment in virtually every way. The native apps that used to be a strong point are now outdated and outclassed, its battery life is far worse than claimed, and it's unattractive to the eye. Far from being the...

BlackBerry Leap review

 

The newest all-touch BlackBerry maintains the status quo.

Were this an Android phone, it could be written off as an affordable handset that any budget-conscious user could make do with to stay connected. That doesn’t fly here, simply because this is a BlackBerry, a platform fewer and fewer people are using...
