#1. The BlackBerry PRIV

Average Rating:


BlackBerry finally comes out of the wood and has the 2015 PRIV merge their signature elements with the popular Android ecosystem (v5.1.1 preloaded)...

What We Like:

  • BB enters the premium space in terms of imaging with the PRIV's 18-megapixel 4K PDAF camera
  • Having an app suite dedicated to privacy and phone management (DTEK) sounds quite handy
  • The combination of its ultra-high-end 5.4-inch Gorilla Glass 4 screen (arced edges) and a slide-out keyboard adds a BB signature to its offering


#2. The BlackBerry Bold 9700

Average Rating:


BlackBerry attempts to set a new trend in the smartphone market with the Passport's square display (1440p, 1:1 aspect ratio) capable of showing 60 characters per line...

What We Like:

  • It has a pretty hefty 3450mAh battery capacity
  • The 4.5-inch square screen provides more space for reading documents compared to rectangular screens

Average Rating:


BlackBerry's MWC 2015 entry breaks off from their usual QWERTY-smartphone form factor, as the Leap sports a 5-inch HD display and replaces the physical keyboard with the BlackBerry Keyboard application...

What We Like:

  • Being able to converse with users on other smartphone operating systems via the BBM app sounds pretty nifty
  • The BB Assistant might prove useful for busy and always-on-the-go users
