Not BERRY good

Disadvantages: Camera, internet speed, MB download is slow, app options.
I was so excited to get a Blackberry, I'm not so excited about it anymore. While other phone companies are moving on and the use of mobile internet browsing is becoming such a phenomenon, Blackberry are stuck in their BBM-Email-Text world. Thank goodness the Blackberry app store (which has little over 100 apps) has embraced Whatsap (another instant messaging app that lets you talk with people with other brand phones) or I would have noone to talk to - as everyone has made the smart move to iPhone. Once credit I must give this phone, is the ease of the keyboard, I am much faster at communicating that touch screen users, the keypad is fantastic. The internet speed, camera and app options are not. If emailing and texting is what you're looking for, this phone cant be faulted (almost - see later). If social media or browsing the news on the way to work or snapping family pics is your thing, I do not recommend this phone. There is also the small problem of what Blackberry users refer to as "the white screen of death", this refers to the day when you have over-used your Blackberry model and it gives up entirely. All you will see is a white screen, and no, soaking in rice won't bring it back to life.
Summary: For business men, not socialites.
