BlackBerry Leap Review
The BlackBerry company seems to have found a stable path. It has pivoted from being primarily a handset maker to a provider of services for all platforms, and the strategy seems to be working. In terms of hardware BlackBerry has narrowed its focus to business users and the enterprise, and is committed to staying out of the sub-Rs. 10,000 consumer market which it clearly cannot compete in.
The BlackBerry Classic (Review | Pictures) is for QWERTY loyalists who could never let go, and now the BlackBerry Leap is for touchscreen natives who feel that there might be something better out there than the current status quo.
However, it knows that there are a lot of people who want to be better and more responsive at work, and there are companies that are willing to pay good money to ensure their communications are secure.
The battery lasted 7 hours, 19 minutes in our video loop test which is respectable but not spectacular. That result represents about a full day’s worth of non-intensive usage, but the phone did seem to last longer than that in the real world. Call quality was excellent.
