IDIOTS!! IDIOTS EVERY WHERE. LEARN TO WRITE A REVIEW FIRST
01 Dec 2013 By prashanth On flipkart.com

Pls..If u want to compare a BB with android and ios or windows kill yourself.nn1. RAM : nLearn that every OS uses a specific amount of RAM for the performance..Nokia has only 512mb RAM for its devices upto 20000. WHY? because Windows uses only that level of ram, whereas an android even if it has 1Gb ram sometimes get struck. So, 512 MB RAM is good enough for a BB OS platform..I've used all platforms and yes there is no problem with 512MB ram. u can peacefully multitask.nn2. ProcessornYes,the processor is a Tag less..but works flawlessly.nn3. BB os 7.nMost of the people who use prefer OS 7 as it gives you more security and u can use unlimited internet for 400rs now it's 1gb for 129 on many platforms. OS 10 gives you android apps loading..so the features have to be altered and so unlimited internet cannot be given to OS 10.. Even though 10 is a touch advanced..there are many benefits with OS 7. U will know if u use a BB with OS 7 and OS 10.nn4. Apps.nnAn android Facebook uses 17MB of ur internal memory and occupies more RAM.nA blackberry Facebook app uses only 3MB of internal memory. nSo please dont complain about internal memory or RAM,. It is a mere platform difference.nn5. GamesnThis brand is not for gamers..so please stayaway.nn6.FeelnFeel the QWERTY and see it's magic. Typing feast.nnPlease try to respect every brand and dont compare with androids and other platforms as BB stands out in many aspects and gives you a better feel of a smartphone..nAndroid requires high specs to run smoothly..u can only find a decent android for 10k not less than that..most of them are cheap if under the 10k segment although they work fine ..there is no guarantee. BB Is a global brand known for its compact mobiles although slightly costly..nnLearn things before generally commenting and comparing, just because it has a higher specification does not mean it is better, may be its because it needs it to work..and having a low specification does not mean its crap, may be it's only because it's needs less..

Finally a good BlackBerry!
28 Oct 2013 By varun parkash On flipkart.com

I bought this phone about month ago, though not from Flipkart. I have used a BB 9790, 9900 and Curve 3G before, and this has surely been the best till now. It has the following features:nn1. Touchscreen - best touchscreen i have used.n2. Qwerty keyboard - is a straight keyboard unlike the other curved ones, and spaced out keys that makes in very easy to type. The keyboard is identical to the one on q5.n3. FM - has an inbuilt radio.n4. 5 MP camera - not too great.n6. 1450 mAh battery - lasts an entire day with 3g... excellent.n7. I like the build quality and the cover at the back has an amazing design making it very easy to grip.n8. Finally the price is what attracted me... I am a bbm user and for 16k there is no bb as good as this with these specsnnSo finally, if u like a good well built phone, that looks amazing, is moderately fast, provides good social networking... then this is the phone for u !
