    Default P'9982 feels very cheap

    I just got the P9982 and I must say it feels very plastic and light. I would have guessed it was plastic if I didnt know about Porsche Design phones.

    I love the way the P9981 feels in your hand. Just by holding it you know you are holding a premium product where as with the new one it doesnt feel like anything special. I wonder if Porsche Design was just trying to save money with this one and try to push sales based on the success of the P'9981

    They didn't even include a charging dock with this model.

    It came with a charger though, right? You just mean no dock, ie stand?

    What accessories did it come with, out of curiosity?

    The P'9982 comes with nothing more than what the other devices in the BlackBerry 10 range come with. Charger, headphones, a couple of different charging adaptor fitments and the manual. They were a bunch of cheapskates for doing this in my opinion.The P'9982, and P'9981 for that matter should have come with a metallic charging dock.

    Yes its essentially the same accessories as a Z10 except it has more adapters for the charger so it can be charged in different countries. Also the accessories are packaged a little better.

    The P'9981 does come with a charging dock though; a very nice one. Its metal and has a leather finish on the inside, as well as a little light in it so its easy to spot in the dark.

    The P'9982 though, completely doesn't have any sort of dock.

    Sorry I lost it when you said you bought a mass market droid device. Enjoy being like everyone else!

    Definitely less weighty coming from a P'9981, but I'd not say it looks or feels cheap in the least though. A pleasure to use.

    Was just expecting more with this device I guess. It certainly doesn't feel cheap, compared with whats out there. I think the iPhone is the only other phone that comes close to it in terms of design and finish materials.

    Very stupid comment...

    Being that the P'9981 has been in the market for a while now the price of it has gone down to a somewhat affordable level (you can find one for about 600-800 used)

    As the price keeps dropping I think more and more people will get to try these devices and see what they were all about.

    US carriers take out anything they can profit from after marker with BlackBerry 10 cause the phones didn't sell. Think of the good old legacy days where a curve or bold had pouch or hoster, ear phone, home charger, car charger, etc. Now you get a phone, battery, and charger. So they can sell you earphones, car charger, case, and screen protector bundled

    It does. Would have preferred it to be a little heavier, not so wide and without that bloody keyboard. BB9900 keyboard is way better to use.

    Considering how there are no more charging contacts on any of the bb10 phones it doesn't surprise me that there's no dock included. The while point of the dock was to drop it in and charge. You can't do that now. Now you have to somewhat carefully connect it and remove without damaging the micro USB port.

    I think what makes the P9982 standout is the 64gb of internal memory. Any owner of a bb10 device who has to pick and choose apps can appreciate having 400% more potential app space on their device.

    64GB internal is definitely more useful than people give credit for (I run out of space on 16 gigs fast, and a 32 gb microSD does nothing for me but store videos, photos and music). Hardly worth the surcharge though. I wish they gave that option to the regular BB10 phones.

    I don't think that porsche was saving on this one. Remember, it's expensive because of the brand, not the material. Also, the Z10 is light regardless.

    Because they want to make money on accessories. US Stores are vultures waiting to prey on every customer. Funny that the iPhone gets it's EarPods included. SMH. Neither my Z10, Q10, or Z30 came with earphones. Didn't care much about the Z10 or Q10 cause didn't use for media that much but was annoyed when the Z30 didn't have them because an amazing 5inch screen had me want to use media on a phone for the first time really.

    It's absolutely insidious that they do that down there. What makes it worse is the headphones are needed on the z30 to use the radio so by taking them out they've taken away a feature you shouldn't have to pay extra for.
