I haven’t been able to write a blog post in the last couple of days because I’ve been stuck with my mobile phone but today, I was forced to launch the WordPress application on my iPhone and address this outrageous hype about Blackberry. First, I should let you know that Blackberry sucks and by far, it’s the worst smartphone I’ve ever operated. Wait…did I even say smartphone? To me, it’s just a smart toy 😛 I know you’ll want to bite my head off right now if you’re a blackberry freak but who cares?
It’s a fact that for some people, Blackberry does what they need to do but if you need a proper smartphone, don’t go near Blackberry. Trying to get it because your friends own it is foolishness.
If you’re using a Blackberry phone and think you’re on top of the world, you need to see what iOS, Android and Symbian Belle has to offer and I swear you’ll want to smack your silly BB phone against the wall. I said Blackberry sucks and you shouldn’t buy one. I’m not talking out of ignorance, I’ll give you valid reasons.
1. Justin Trudeau, a Top Canadian Politician, Confirms BB Sucks
RIM (Reasearch in Motion) is the Canadian company that manufactures Blackberry (in case you didn’t know) but lately, they’ve had lots to deal with including this tweet from a top Canadian politician:
Ok, now I officially hate this Blackberry. Stupid ineffective touch screen mislaunching tweets. Plus I can’t multitask, apparently.
That’s a confirmation on how ineffective Blackberry is at being a good Smartphone. He said his BB couldn’t multitask but I assume that’s a personal experience. BB can do multitasking but whatever got the man tweet that got to be pretty annoying.
2. Limited Applications and Games
If you’re the type that love messing around with all sort of applications, you’ll regret buying a Blackberry device. It’s obvious app developers are not interested in developing for Blackberry OS. Their app world sucks big time. I run Adobe Photoshop Express on my iPhone and there are tons of applications on iTunes store, Google Play and Ovi that you’ll never find on Blackberry, not in the next 50 years.
Wait, does blackberry support HD games? I run Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 on my iPhone with full commentary and stunning graphics.
3. You can’t even Customize the Stupid Thing
Well, I’m a geek and I love doing whatever I like with my device. I use a Symbian phone and iPhone, both hacked and jailbroken respectively. I can customize my device, do whatever I like with the OS but with a Blackberry phone, this is impossible.
4. The User Interface is Ugly
You user interface isn’t modern to me but Blackberry users believe “it’s Blackberry” so it has to be that way. I think you need to wake up!
5. Blackberry Messenger? Facebook Chat has More Users!
The only thing Blackberry has that you can’t find on other phones is their Blackberry messenger. But wait, those using Blackberry messenger don’t use Facebook chat? BBM is not enough reason to but a Blackberry phone, I can still contact my friends on Facebook chat that’s even more widely used, with or without my mobile phone around.
Think about it, only a fraction of your friends are on Blackberry messenger, almost everyone of them use Facebook chat.
6. The Web Browser is so Ineffective
With the Safari browser on my iPhone, I can open every single web page on the internet without any problem, displaying the page exactly as it would look like on my notebook. The other day I was using a friend’s Blackberry, it sucked even more than I imagined! Last time I checked, Symbian Anna and Android supports flash!
7. The Design Sucks Big Time
You can’t compare my sleek, elegant iPhone with any Blackberry device in market. Blackberry isn’t attractive one bit and there are better looking touch based devices running Android OS and Symbian. The qwerty keypad is rather too small for me (hey, I’ve got big fingers 😛 lol ), the virtual keyboard on iOS is a lot better if you ask me.
The future belongs to touch based devices and it seems RIM is trying to catch up on that, copying Apple, Samsung and other smartphone manufacturers. They failed at that!
The touchscreen doesn’t work right. I have to constantly turn off my phone, take the battery out, wait a minute, put the battery back in, and restart my phone just to get it to half way work!!! Even after I do that it still doesn’t work right!!!!
That’s a Blackberry user lamenting at it’s effectiveness. You shouldn’t buy a blackberry phone if you need a real smartphone. Blackberry is nothing but a toy to me and the operating system is nothing to write home about. You can scream all you want, I’m just saying my mind here and if you feel the way I do, please share this blog post on Facebook and hit the +1 button! Tell your friend Blackberry sucks!
