BlackBerry Leap

 

For good or ill, the physical keyboard on BlackBerry's last few devices relegated those phones to a rather specific niche. But in striking out the platform's chief differentiator, we're left with a 5-inch touchscreen device with a meager camera that's...

The BlackBerry Leap smartphone is a plain workhorse with BlackBerry's productivity and security pedigree.

The Amazon app store is missing many popular apps found on Google Play, or Apple's iOS app store.

The BlackBerry Leap ditches a physical keyboard to lure folks looking for a modern smartphone experience, but a lack of apps and a lackluster camera keep this device behind the competition.

BlackBerry Leap review

 

The newest all-touch BlackBerry maintains the status quo.

Were this an Android phone, it could be written off as an affordable handset that any budget-conscious user could make do with to stay connected. That doesn’t fly here, simply because this is a BlackBerry, a platform fewer and fewer people are using...

BlackBerry Leap review: an old phone with a fresh face

 

Two years ago, BlackBerry finally broke free of the monotonous cycle it had entrenched itself in by launching its first all-touchscreen device, the Z10.

Long battery life ; Versatile 8-megapixel camera ; BB10 OS is a great productivity tool

Bulky compared to other 5-inch phones ; Poor-quality display panel ; Outdated internals ; Weak app selection

There are several things to like about the BlackBerry Leap, including its long battery life, surprisingly good camera and the productivity afforded by BB10 OS. The handset isn’t without issues, though. It can be cumbersome to use due to its size; its...

BlackBerry Leap Review

 

Does BlackBerry still have what it takes to produce a smartphone worthy of standing out against the competition? Here is our review for the newest five-inch touch device simply called the Leap.

BlackBerry clearly has a solid performer in the Leap, and it clearly positions itself to be a productivity phone for those who want peace of mind for security and privacy. Solid, professional-looking build and design; its good performance despite...

So should you get the Blackberry Leap? First thing first, it’s not a radically different device from the previous gen full touchscreen devices like Z3 or Z10, which is not necessarily a bad thing because who would change something that is working for...

BlackBerry Leap review

 

A revamped version of the Z10

Has 2GB of RAM ; Great design ; Impressive battery life ; It's affordable

The aged processor

The BlackBerry Leap is affordable, but not cheap. It looks expensive and sports a smart design and good battery life, but the processor is an oddity. Overall, it's a solid, rather impressive piece of kit.

BlackBerry Leap: Affordable 5-incher lacks Z30 charm (hands-on) - Pocket-lint

 

We knew that BlackBerry was going to use Mobile World Congress to talk about future devices and it announced the Leap, alongside a tease of a whacky slider

BlackBerry Leap Review: In Depth

 

Blackberry Leap review: we take a look at the Blackberry Leap, possibly the last all-touch device to run BBOS 10 natively.

Improved OS ; Surprising cameras ; Decent battery life

Middling design ; Average screen ; No NFC

We’ve reached the final leg of the Leap’s review with an air of surprise surrounding us. On paper the BlackBerry Leap appears to be a little unimaginative from a design perspective, conservative from a hardware perspective and out of touch with regards...

BlackBerry Leap review: Ditches the keyboard, but offers little for those who aren't BlackBerry fans

 

BlackBerry has long been a byword for mobile security and productivity, and that isn't going to change with the BlackBerry Leap. Available unlocked for $275, or £199 in the UK (about AU$394), this phone pays homage to BlackBerry's business-focused...
