Ditching iPhone and Running with Blackberry

Submitted by Muhammad Azam



Blackberry was been on top of the market when the iPhone was introduced in the market. The iPhone by Apple took over the place of Blackberry phones and its accessories like the Blackberry cases, and that is the time we last saw the innovation and the creative gadgets from this name. It has been 5 years and still there is no sign of an activity accept the launch ceremony from Blackberry Company RIM’s CEO. The CEO promised the world a better phone and a tablet from the company on regards to the competition by the iPad and the iPhone. Let us see what the company holds for its future and what is there for Apple’s iPhone.

I am going to compare the last versions of both the phones here; the Blackberry torch and the iPhone 4S, so when the Blackberry launches its total touch phone next year in comparison to the iPhone 5, we will have a potential market of buyers and interested candidates.

The iPhone 4S VS Blackberry Torch

Both the phones are slim and smart in the build and both are backed by an app store. For once you may find the completely sleek and slim look of an iPhone, and for some other time, you would prefer the signature look of that shiny keyboard of Blackberry Torch. The screen of the iPhone may have its advantages of access to icons easily but again the touch ball and pad of the Blackberry phone is a plus point as well.


The screen resolution of the iPhone is higher than that of Blackberry, with 3.5 inches for iPhone and 2.8 for the blackberry phones. However, this difference is normal for an average buyer as nowadays, buyers look for looks – not the tech review.


The blackberry has its own messenger and iPhone does not. Although there may be so many apps on the iTunes store for messenger software, however, this is true for Blackberry app world too. Therefore, there is no comparison when it comes to iPhone apps.

Memory details and camera features

Both the devices are good with memory details and the camera qualities. However, iPhone’s 8 MP camera with 1080p HD version is much better than the 5 Mega Pixel with 720p HD camera of Blackberry Torch. Blackberry works with expansible memory, however iPhone does not. On the other hand, iPhone has access to free cloud servicing which Blackberry only can think of.


So, have you decided which to buy?
