Eh. If you can get a used one for a decent price go for it.
Got mine in mint condition from a girl a 1,5 year ago. Cost me ~150 USD It's a decent device, definately an upgrade to andromeme, but I wish It had a toolbelt like the classic and an actual application store. BB world is a joke.
Nah. On a physical phone keyboard, you have to press down each key when you type which causes thumb strain faster and overall makes your typing speed very slow.
Something many people don't seem to realize is you can literally touch type on a touch screen phone keyboard, you just need to practice like you do on a full sized qwerty keyboard. It helps to turn off auto-correct and word suggestions.
>>52623757 As someone who was forced to use one for about 2 years, I can tell you I highly recommend against it. My Q10 I had was annoyingly frustrating to use. The gesture crap was horrible especially when my hands were the slightest bit damp (sweat from being on a roof all day) and also the software was just badly laid out.
If I were you to get a blackberry, get a different model. One with hardware call end and answer buttons. I always ended up missing a call because the screen wouldn't registered I was swiping. This was on 3 different ones I had, they kept getting destroyed on the job (HVAC tech)
>>52624304 >I hardly use social media so I'm sure the app It's actually a great device for social media since both facebook and twitter are deeply integrated with the Hub. And they're developed by RIM so no bullshit like Facebook app taking 180MB of ram doing shit. Sadly they're pretty barebones in terms of functionality. But Permission control is nice too.
>How is the camera? Average. Like pretty much every spec of this device (but 2GB of RAM is great, doesn't lag at fucking all)
Blackberries are expensive because >long term support >small marketshare >devices aren't made in china
They didnt yet caught with the selfie crowd. It's not their target audience
Pic related, quick photo in poor light without any adjustments. Done from the lockscreen.
That is one thing actually I can say about the Q10, camera is pretty decent. It worked decently on focusing quick and shit. But that's really about all I can say I enjoyed of the phone. You can use the space bar to capture.
>>52623757 Yes. Q10 is flawless as a communication device: qwerty, Hub, battery life, sturdiness, smooth and absolutely lagless OS. >hurr durr no apps every android banking app/timetables/communicators/everyday program i tried works on q10 flawlessly, even demanding games like San Andreas do (controls on 3" screen are obviously a joke). You can download snap, google play client, and download every android app like you do on google play. Android dalvik support is very good on bbos10.3.
>>52624617 >Any idea how the camera and k/b is compared to the q10? Surprise surprise it's literally the same phone as the q10. Same cpu, same ram, same camera, same screen resolution (screen is larger). And a toolbelt
>>52624610 >And I don't argue that physical keyboard is faster. It's just more comfortable to type on. You must have been blessed with really good thumb genetics or something because mine used to hurt like a bitch after typing a few paragraphs on a physical phone keyboard. That hasn't been a problem ever since I started typing on a touchscreen phone keyboard. Now I have to type out like an entire fucking essay before my thumbs start hurting.
>>52624815 I remember I used to type on an iphone 4s, shit was horrible. Constantly made mistakes and had to use my idex finger to type stuff so it always took forever. Now I can get like 35wpm with almost no mistakes on my note 3. Not fast I know, but I'm practicing.
>>52625892 It's not the speed you autist. Though touch typing on a touchscreen phone will always be faster. The problem is physical keys cause a ton of strain on your thumbs after a while. I know because I used to have a blackberry myself. It doesn't help that each letter key is like 4mm.
>>52625892 Are you fucking blind? Getting 40WPM or more on a touchscreen can easily be accomplished by learning how to touchtype with your thumbs in a couple of months. No way in hell are people going to get those speeds on a phone with a physical keyboard except a very small group of human mutants.
>>52623757 I bought a Passport Silver Edition at launch. It was a beautiful, well powered and fun to use device.
I returned it a month later.
Don't let these BB autists on this thread fool you OP, apps are still how mobile devices work, for better or worse, and the app situation on BB is utter shit. Yes, you can sideload Snap and DL old 4.4 Android apps, but you will never be able to use android Services, so no authentic Google apps will work correctly.
If you MUST have a BB, get a Priv, but then you're missing out on BB10 which is a joy to use. Better off just buying a Nexus and dealing with the onscreen keyboard.
>>52623757 Follow this smartphone buyer's guide, OP:
- If you absolutely need a physical keyboard (you don't), then get a Blackberry Classic. - If you want to be different, get a cheap Windows phone. - If you want a modern, functional smartphone, get a mid-range Android phone. - If you want pussy, get an iPhone.
Blackberries, as they are now, are a terrible choice if you rely on anything except the very most basic smartphone functionality. It will only get worse. They are not worth their pricetags.
I used a Q10 for about a year and a half. If social media is of any importance to you (but knowing /g/, it probably isn't) then it probably isn't for you. Twitter is pretty barebones, and Blackberry still won't update the Facebook app to display threaded comments and most image shares, so most of it is useless. Android app compatibility is hit or miss, though most of the time it's just sluggish (like, Pandora will work, but super, super slowly). That being said, if you can really just live with calling, texting, and some basic web browsing (the tiny 3 inch screen isn't so great for it, but hey, it works) then you'll be fine. But really, just get an Android phone.
