2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • BlackBerry Internet Service plan is required to use many features (browser/ mail/ IM)
  • BlackBerry continues to lose out to Androids and iPhones in 3rd party apps (BlackBerry app world is no comparison to app stores of iPhone and Android)
  • Web browser is good, but again, still behind Android and iPhone
  • No auto-focus for camera
  • No video-call camera
  • Glossy back panel prevents good grip and gets easily greased up
  • BlackBerry OS feels antiquated compared to Android or iOS
  • BlackBerry Internet Service plan is a must to use the best phone features
  • Average camera (no auto-focus, faint details)
  • Average call quality
