    Snapdragon 625 for 720 Canadian dollars : what’s not to like?

    Oh, wait…

    • Jockohomo

      You have removed the very words directly from my brain. Brain thief!

    • kirfer

      Why are you surprised? Never forget that we are actually the same person!

    • Jockohomo

      Of course….I do forget, because of the partitions I’ve installed. My parts like a degree of privacy. Hey, you talk to Priscilla lately?

    • kirfer

      Yeah, I had to quiz her about that whole new “Joan Rivers” look she’s been rockin’.

      Looks very, aaah, umm, let’s just go with *scary*. Yeesh!

    • Jockohomo

      Not aging gracefully, eh? That Marie Osmond is creeping me out, too.

    • kirfer

      Why, that’s just good clean Mormon living for you. No wonder she’s part of the Slimsational Stars.

    • Jockohomo

      Well, now I’m a fan!

    • kirfer

      Someone else evidently isn’t a fan… her river of sorrow is currently receiving flow from several smaller tributaries. The responses are, of course, bereft of insight, inventiveness, and interest. (As Bernoulli said of Isaac Newton’s solution of the brachistochrone problem: tanquam ex ungue leonem)

    • Jockohomo

      More of a kitten, perhaps, but yes. You, however, have dared to critique Blackalcatcl and their pricing strategy, so, you, sir, are a hater, truth be damned.

    • kirfer

      Clearly a considerable case of Chunky Chenvy!

      There is no other reason to speak in anything other than a laudatory tone about this phenomenal and ongoing success story, driven by extraordinary products, marketing, management and cold hard innovation.

      I know that, because Dingle told me.

    • Jockohomo

      That sounds like some real “intellectual discourse” right there.

    • Chug that haterade

      You wouldn’t know anything about it….

    • kirfer

      Well recognised, sir: honorary doctorates from Loowater University in both Dinglish and Kettle Logic are being awarded to you as we speak…

    • Jockohomo

      Shuweeeeeet! Dare I ask…………
      Holster?

    • kirfer

      It’s still being crocheted (like those faux “carbon fibre” cases), from the infamous pile of blended Z10s Blackburied still keeps.

      Stay tuned!

    • Jockohomo

      I shall stay locked on this channel!

    • Chug that haterade

      Too dull…

    • Chug that haterade

      Too dull

    • Chug that haterade

      Too dull

    • Chug that haterade

      Curious why either of you care what the price is? Neither of you are buying one…

    • Jockohomo

      Temporary truce to answer this:
      First, you don’t know what phone I’m interested in purchasing.
      Second, it is MY opinion that they’ve priced this too high, and it will probably hurt sales. I may be wrong, but that is my thought.
      Third, all kidding aside, I don’t really root for BlackBerry to fail. Less choice is a bad thing and I wish they would have been able to stick with BB10, rather than Android.

    • Chug that haterade

      1. True but you come off as constantly hating on BlackBerry.

      2. It could very well be priced too high. Which is a better option though? Price it high and then come down 50 or 100 bucks… or price it too low and leave money on the table? Once you have the price set, you can’t really raise the price..

      3. See #1. I agree. I’ve used Android and it isn’t bad but I prefer BB10. Maybe the BlackBerry version of Android will be better

      Regarding the truce… I honestly think the back and forth ishtslinging is pretty stupid but I’m not going to stop until others do.

    • Jockohomo

      1. I’m not hating on BlackBerry, I’m laughing at it… because of the terrible mismanagement that has seriously hurt a once great company. Better to laugh than cry, I suppose.
      2. Good point, can’t disagree.
      3. They are not going to stop, especially on BGR. Why? It can be fun, though quite a few take it too far, and seem genuinely angry. It is silly, of course. Mostly, I like silly stuff. The real world is not quite as fun…And please, don’t think I mind if you and others rip into Apple. I consider it part of the game, if you will, so I don’t think you need to stop. I have use for iOS stuff, but I’m really not a fanboy. So….Trial white flag?

    • Chug that haterade

      1. I agree that there have been missteps.. many happened under old BB leadership that put them in the position they are in today. Personally, I don’t see what is so funny about it… a lot of innocent hardworking people have unfortunately lost their jobs due to missteps by former leadership.

      2. Personally, i’d like to see the price lower but I also understand the need to make a profit.

      3. The fanboy wars are one thing (and still rather ridiculous) but the constant “Chin” and other garbage isn’t necessary. It is tough to not get caught up in the cesspool.

    • Jockohomo

      No, you’re right, it is sad. In fact, it’s terrible. But, humor…..It’s what we do. It’s how we are coping with a Trump presidency, for example. That is something that actually scares me….
      As far as the fanboy wars, yes, it is easy to get caught up, and the more you react, the uglier it gets. These are grownups, I think…I wonder, sometimes…. You’ll notice there are things I avoid. I’ve decided that attempting to call them out is useless, really. Seems to feed them more than anything. None of us really know anything about each other in real life anyway. So, enjoy the show, have a laugh or two and a beverage of your choice.

    • Karl

      None of your comments here or in the past from what I can see ‘honour’ anyone elses opinion that doesn’t align with your own. This entire three point post of yours is just window-dressing for the flame wars you engage in here and BGR too. Your reputation precedes you more than you know.

      Also, no one is saying its ‘funny’ what has happened to the company but you can’t begrudge the critics who’ve largely been correct in their assessments irrespective of whether you like the way they frame their words.

    • Chug that haterade

      Please Shogun…. there is a difference between being critical about the pricing or a feature and constantly showing up on BlackBerry articles to post the same tired “BlackBerry stinks… the Mercury stinks…” comments

    • Rev0lver

      Come on Shogun. You’re not nearly as clever as you think you are.

    • TheCuddlyKoala

      Nobody will buy one.

    • Chug that haterade

      Riiiiiight…. keep hoping and praying

    • Chug that haterade

      Hilarious how you show up the same article within minutes of each other…. definitely not the same person… no sir… impossible!!

    • Chug that haterade

      Is anyone forcing you to buy it?

    • Karl

      Is anyone forcing you to constantly come out here and comment about it either? Care to tell us why it bothers you so much that anyone has an opinion of Blackberry that differs from your own deserves to listen to your never-ending guard-dog rants? Give it a rest.

    • Chug that haterade

      Shogun ^^^

    • Rev0lver

      Puppet accounts are one of the most pathetic things an online commenter can do.

      I guess I shouldn’t be surprised then….

    • Bitekr

      reviews say it is very good CPU optimized for battery efficiency. so what is your point ?
