    A couple of things that's really better on whatsapp :
    1. Ability to send multiple pictures. Really about time, they brought this.
    2. The new whatsapp update brought in a very nice update for Q users: Ability to add multiple smileys at once by holding the alt key. A very nice feature.

    True. Also in Groups WhatsApp has this thing where you open the group and it takes you to the last message you haven't read. BBM needs this as well, it's not fun having to scroll up lots of messages and try to recall which one you last read...

    Ability to send high quality pictures should be #1 priority.

    That's the only reason why I prefer WhatsApp over BBM

    that's the dumbest reason of them all. imagine you're on a low-data package and some ********* sends you a few of his hi-res pictures. i'd be kinda pissed. requesting a hq pictures is a million times better than getting a 'sorta okay quality' picture by default and not be able to get the original one, all.

    I didn't mind if it was an okay quality picture. The problem is that it is a crappy quality blurry picture. 1MB pictures are compressed to 25kb, that's not good for 2014. All the people in the carrier I have have regular download speeds of 20+Mbps some with unlimited (no caps) on it. It doesn't make any sense to over compress like it is now.

    Why does WhatsApp allow for higher quality pictures (compressed at an average of 65Kb) vs BBM (30Kb) ?

    Look at it yourself


    BBM @ 43Kb

    WhatsApp @ 78Kb

    You be the judge between what's acceptable and what exceeds your expectations.

    BlackBerry is ilegible in the Z30 of the BBM picture, while of course, it's not the end of the world but if I recommend my BBM friends to upgrade their BBM so they can have Channels do you think it's cool for them to see such lowly appealing presentation?

    Agreed but multiple pictures, for example, is taking a tad too long to come to BBM.

    Small enhancements on BBM will make it perfect !
    - able to send multiple pictures at a go
    - option to send file on BBM chat, instead of having to share file from file manager
    - BBM desktop version. This will make it the best and truly cross-platform messenger
