Blackberry Leap smartphone: Top features, USPs

0

Blackberry, which has been facing stiff competition from several key smartphones brand in the market, recently launched the Blackberry Leap priced at Rs 21,490. The third touch-based device from the erstwhile RIM’s stable is a follow up of the Z10 and the Z30 smartphone. Here is Leap’s evaluation:

The business phone company launched its third touch device named as ‘Blacberry Leap’ recently. The all new Leap is priced at Rs 21,490. The new phone is seen as a follow up of the Z10 and the Z30 smartphone.

The Leap dimensions as 144 mm x 72 mm x 9.50 mm and weighs around 170 grams. Like conventional smart phones, back panel houses the camera and the speaker mesh, whereas the front panel has the screen.

Blackberry Leap has a sharp display with a 5 inch screen and a resolution of 720×1280 pixels at 294 PPI. For camera lovers the phone comes with rear camera of 8MP and front-facing camera is of 2MP.

The camera comes with a unique ‘Time Shift’ feature which allows you to select the best photo from a series of still shots. The front camera fulfills the selfie hunger and is good for video chatting.

The smartphone is powered with 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor with impressive 2 GB RAM units. The 16GB storage gives you ample data to save and can be expanded to 128GB using a microSD card unit.

Leap runs on the latest BlackBerry OS 10.3.1 which is way better than previous versions.Battery and connectivity: A 2,800mAH battery is what keeps the smartphone running. The device has a good battery backup and can last nearly 16 days on standby. On the connectivity front, the device supports 4G and Bluetooth but there is no near field communication capability. 

Verdict: The Leap is a mixture of so many things but we feel that the firm is still banking on the enterprise-use approach which might not aid the sales of the device. The device is nowhere close to competition from Android, Cynanogen or Windows device. Plus it lacks a USP making the Leap look overpriced from certain angles. For blackberry die-hards, it’s a leap of faith.
