It would depend on my budget,currently you can have a new sim free Q5 for £179.95

or a Z10 for £189.95

so if you couple all the usual Blackberry features (with no addon to buy as they're BB10) plus they now have the ability to run just about all Android apps then if my budget was a max of £200.00 then I'd buy one of the 2 in a heartbeat because apart from the Windows Phone Lumia 625 what else could I buy without spending considerably more money?


Blackberry Z10 is £149 direct from Blackberry

None of them, they are all over priced as you're paying for a Chinese made handset but with a shiny badge.

 

If I wanted a 4G handset I would import one from China as I did with my current Lenovo, however as we don't get a usable 2G giffgaff signal let alone 3G or 4G it is totally irrelevant!!

I do like the Nokia ones. Of course all of them are great in their own way!

I'm a massive iPhone fan so it would have to be the iPhone 5s. Nice size and like the smoothness of the operating system.

None of the above. I'm waiting for 5G.

I'd much prefer the S4 due to it's sheer power since I love tinkering! ;p

 

That said, for ease of usage, I'd probably pick iPhone!

Ah a fellow China skeptic. The problem and reasons for phones from China is that they're all made with so called 'conflict minerals'. Congo has been in a state of near civil war for years that's only getting worse as our desire for new technology increases and the demand for stuff like Cobalt increases. Now here's the rub, if you want this stuff you can't buy it directly from the massively unethical sources, that'd be commercial suicide. Instead you have to go through slightly more ethical proxy countries like China. It's a bit like money laundering where with every country the parts and minerals pass through a little more blood is washed off Smiley Happy

 

By going straight to China to buy stuff instead of a shiny company like Apple or Samsung your phone hasn't had as much blood cleaned off as the rest of us Smiley Very Happy

 

Hope for Congo and the Enough projects are both good Smiley Happy
