2-minute Review [Positives]

2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Squat, square shape makes it awkward to use - and virtually impossible to use with one hand - this is a phone that clearly sacrifices comfort for productivity
  • Apps that aren't optimized for the square display can also look a little odd
  • Android apps are supported but the app store that is included (Amazon app store) is limited and lacks some of the apps found on Google Play
  • The gesture based interface of the Blackberry OS takes time getting used to
  • Average camera - takes too long to focus and snap photos
  • Heats up during gaming
  • Windows app store still falls behind Android and iPhone in terms of the variety of apps available
