Do you remember who Blackberry is? It used to be the smartphone of choice, especially for office computer network users. Well, its name hasn’t surfaced ever since the iPhone tech world became infectious. Apple’s main computer is the Android phone and Blackberry may be found in the rear view mirror. Research in Motion (RIM) is hoping to turn back time with the Blackberry 10 phones.
What would make you opt for a Blackberry 10 phone over an iPhone?
- Better security – Your user privacy is protected and not followed or tracked like the iPhone. Apple support is open that users are tracked for marketing/other purposes.
- Comparable messages – BBM, Blackberry messaging, is a tightly-woven texting system like iMessage. Plus, it has an integrated chat feature.
- Better battery charge – Blackberries can last for 2-3 days without requiring a battery charge. You’ll be lucky to last the day with an iPhone.
- Still has a real keyboard – If your the traditionalist who needs to touch the keyboard, not glass, the Blackberry 10 is for you.
The cons on the Blackberry is that it’s still a tad clunky, apps are far inferior, and the battery requires removal periodically when in different states/countries for reception.
Should you buy a Blackberry? If battery life, security, and a real keyboard are priorities and you can live with having inferior apps, speed, Internet, and everything else, then go for it!
