IPhone Vs Blackberry
The iPhone vs. Blackberry debate is one that is had by many all across the world, every day. Smartphones have completely overtaken the mobile industry in a way that both casual and business users have found useful traits in them. They’re powerful devices that can handle bulky apps, render detailed webpages, take care of your banking, and so much more. Many companies have even popped out their own version of the smartphone, such as Research in Motion’s Blackberry, Apple’s iPhone, and so much more.
Two of phones that often get compared heavily against each other are Blackberry and the iPhone. They’re both powerful devices, but how do they measure up against each other and is there one that is really better than the other?
In terms of applications, the iPhone’s app store seems to offer a more wide selection of useful apps for both the casual and professional user. Blackberry’s app store offers a limited selection of free apps as opposed to the iPhone, where there are thousands of useful free apps up for grabs. There isn’t exactly a huge selection of paid apps either in the Blackberry’s app store, which can be a disadvantage for the app-loving user. Because Apple has always encouraged users to design and implement their own apps, it may have something to do with how flourishing and successful its app store is.
As far as physical features of the phones go, the iPhone is much more susceptible to breaking with as little as a thump on a hard surface. This probably has a lot to do with the fact that the phone is practically covered in glass. Both phones are very easy on the eyes, but the Blackberry can stand up to a lot more physical trauma than the glass cannon iPhone.
As far as storage goes, the iPhone offers no support for memory cards or extra internal storage like the Blackberry does. Essentially, however much space is on the iPhone once you buy it is how much space you are stuck with until you upgrade to a better phone. On the other hand, Blackberries support memory cards which can be even be swapped out, opening the door to a loads of potential space.
As far as hardware and capabilities go, the iPhone is a better bet seeing as its later model phones have dual cameras, intense resolution, a faster CPU, and so much more. However, these specs are usually intended to enhance gaming and graphic rich apps. On the other hand, Blackberry aims more for capabilities in the area of business. It runs many useful office applications that the iPhone doesn’t support, it’s insanely secure (the President even uses one), companies use it for mobile email and the Blackberry server products, and so on. Clearly, Blackberry is much more suitable for business use, and the iPhone is more aimed at personal use.
There is really not one phone that is better than the other when it comes to deciding on a winner in the iPhone vs. Blackberry debate. It is a matter of personal preference and which phone fits your lifestyle more. Both phones can make great companions regardless of what you will be using it for. It’s recommended that you test a phone out before buying it if you plan to use it extensively.
