I have been thinking for quite a while now about going back to using a BB phone and I have three choices in mind. I’m currently using a Samsung Galaxy S5 which is great for all my lifestyle/social media needs but I realized that ever since I bought a new agenda in order to keep one dedicated for work and the other for everything else in my life that are non-work related, I have been even more organized. I am not saying this after only a few weeks time because it has been a few months already that has passed and I find it a milestone to have lasted this long using this method.
I don’t find it wasteful at all since I have a lot to write for both and always run out of space and trust me, I love post-its but as soon as they fly away by mistake or have too many can be a hassle as well. You’re probably asking why I don’t just go digital. I have been there during my school days but not all my notes nor my scheme can be accommodated by digital calendars and memos.
Why use two different phones at the same time as well? Very good question. I intended to get myself a BB phone again but couldn’t because not all my social media needs would not be met. I’m sure you know by now that even Instagram isn’t on it and it goes with the BB principle of being professional, smooth and swift communication, and limited-to-no distractions. Hence, getting back to one would mean its purpose is for work-related reasons.
My first BlackBerry was a BlackBerry Storm passed on to me by my dear mother after getting her iPhone. This was my first smartphone which although I no longer had that ‘new phone’ feeling it was great up until I realized the battery life ran out so quick there was almost no point in using it at all for fear that it would die at the wrong time in the day.
After that I had the BlackBerry Z10 and just like the last one there really was no point in listening to music with it which was fine since I had my iPod anyway. It was a very strict phone and I rarely used it for anything else other than Whatsapp, Twitter, and Facebook. I left it for the advantage of using other social media apps on-the-go such as WordPress, Instagram, Lookbook, etc…
Now it’s time to decide which BB phone available today is suited for my work needs.
Here are my choices:
My decision sways toward the BBQ10 more because I still prefer its overall size compared to the Classic and Passport. Screen size is also not a bother since all I need to use it for are emails and messaging using BBM and Whatsapp. I really do like the Passport’s design but apart from its size, I won’t be inclined to use all its apps and features since its not going to be my main phone therefore there won’t be a need to spend more than CHF 500+ for it.
Have any opinions/suggestions before I make my final decision? Leave it in the comment section below and take it into account. Many thanks in advance for those who do 🙂
