We found Leap to be worthy of the BlackBerry name. It's fast, easy to master and is unequaled in its ability to deliver messages in one location. The system does exactly what it sets out to do. Overall, the Leap is a very good smartphone and a terrific business tool.
On paper the BlackBerry Leap appears to be a little unimaginative from a design perspective, conservative from a hardware perspective and out of touch with regards to its software, but pair all these off-kilter elements together and miraculously they make a respectable, solid smartphone overall.
The newest all-touch BlackBerry maintains the status quo... The Leap is more of the same from BlackBerry, but it offers an entry point for users seeking a tool rather than a toy at a price they can afford.
There are plenty of people for whom the BlackBerry Leap would perform a perfectly good job. It does messaging very well, battery life under light use is exceptional, and general performance is adequate. However, the Leap's problem is that the Android-based competition is even cheaper, a touch more capable, and a lot more flexible, thanks to Google Play and its greater choice of apps.
Viewed in isolation, the BlackBerry Leap isn't a terrible device; there's just nothing particularly exciting about it. The design is unimaginative, largely borrowed from the lesser-known BlackBerry Z3, and its size can make it cumbersome to use at times. And, for every positive note, there's always a "but."
...this phone targets professionals and enterprises that want a touch screen device with the security and power communication features of a BlackBerry... If you're a BlackBerry fan, we're sure you would be using one of the BlackBerry 10 devices. It makes no sense to upgrade to the Leap, in that case... In case your company is offering it as an upgrade over a legacy BlackBerry device, go for it.
Ultimately, there's nothing that really separates the Leap from its predecessors. It's got a better screen and much-improved battery life, but few Z10 owners are going to see this as an upgrade. Instead, it's meant for a new generation of BlackBerry users, many of whom will likely be assigned the phone from their IT administrator, comfortable in the reality that it may just be the perfect second smartphone.
Select 'Pay Monthly' if you're looking to get the BlackBerry Leap as part of a monthly contract with minutes, data and texts. Alternatively, choose 'No Contract' if you prefer to buy the BlackBerry Leap SIM Free or on Pay as You Go.
