    I just bought a blackberry leap should receive it in the next couple days. I'm switching from a OnePlus One. I know the specs are terrible compared to the One, but BB 10 looks pretty sick. I just wanted to know if the leap would run smoothly without lag despite the specs. What are your experiences?

    I've been using a leap for the good part of 3 months now. All is well on my side. There is no lag when moving through the OS. It's easy to set up all your accounts and settings.

    Battery life is decent. You should get through a full day with moderate usage. Gaming isn't great, but that's a given due to the Adreno 225 but then again, it's not meant for gaming. It's a work device

    Build quality is great, lovely to hold in the hand, the screen is super bright, one of the best.

    Camera is decent, no where near a iPhone or GS6 but it does a nice job

    That's about all I can say for now, been a good experience for me and would definitely recommend to someone else.

    You have the right state of mind, OP.

    Yes, on paper, the specs look worse than a flagship android, but Leap is running a much more efficient operating system. It doesn't need bulky specs.

    Exactly, BlackBerry doesn't need highest of the specs to run BB10. Andriods look more of a wastage of specs.

    I just switched from an Android using the same cpu & gpu and the leap is way faster, the bb10 os is very smooth and slick.

    I'm definitely enjoying mine. With the current prices I think it's a good deal.

    Depends on what you paid for it. In my opinion the One+One is a much better device all around, but you may end up liking it. I'm not a fan of it and plan on getting rid of mine as a backup phone when the slider launches.

    Mine runs fine, no lag. I had the Z30 before and really don't see much noticeable difference speed wise. Ymmv

    I got mine almost 6 months ago and it has done right by me and served me well. I switched from a Z10. And though this is an entry to mid-tier phone and that implies some missing specs, those that are, haven't made much difference to me.

    And yes the price was an issue. I bought mine factory unlocked, directly from BlackBerry. I'm on prepaid, and paid with tax and everything less than $400 dollars. And that is definitely worth it for what this phone is and does.

    I don't want or need to pay hundreds upon hundreds of dollars for an IPhone or Android device...be it Samsung Galaxy or whatever else.

    That goes for the BlackBerry Priv also...

    My only worry is that BlackBerry will abandon BB10 and the accompanying devices soon...

    Got my Leap today. Looks nice for a midrange device. Like the way it looks better then the Z30. Have to use it for a couple off days to get a good impression.

    I agree, soft touch body is definitely nicer. Though, all (old) ThinkPad's users know that the gumm tends to got scrubed away during regular use. The "square" shape also makes Leap harder to hold in hand. However, repeating myself the overall design is much nicer though.

    I've had Leap since May. All good except for quality of ear speaker for phone...hard to hear person on other end of call when anything is going on around me...going for repair. I heard this has been a fairly common complaint. Navigation is quick between any apps or within any app. I shut down and restart once a week or so as the volume rocker switches on the side become not as responsive as they should be. After restart they are spot on again.

    This post speaks volumes about BB10 and Android. I mucked around with an Android phone For an hour and found it awkward to navigate. Granted, with more time, I would have become more proficient, but first impression wasn't pleasant.

    I've had my Leap for about 6 months. Build quality and battery life are amazing. I have not noticed any lag. My only complaint is the camera in low light conditions. Otherwise, I'm super happy with the speed that the Leap allows me to get things done. As for the app gap, I find most mobile websites these days are geared towards smartphones. Make an icon for the website in your desktop, save any login information, and voila. Or, install from Amazon or Google Play using Corbu's work around.

    I bought an Android tablet to familiarize myself with the OS. Side by side, Lollipop seems to require a lot more steps and it is so darn hard to get out of the habit of swiping. I have a Lenovo and what I love is it is not too bloated with software and more stock Android. I see how people who like customization will like Android, but for someone who values practicality and efficiency, it can test ur patience at times.

    My son was given the choice between the Leap and the Priv. He chose the Leap because he doesn't care for Android.
