  1. Kung 808 device rin lang, lg g4 na lang ang bibilhin ko. Sorry blackberry nasira tiwala ko sa z10 ninyo na laging may shutdown problems at pinabalik balik ako sa service center. Saka na kayo magpresyo ng premium pag maayos na ulit ang quality ninyo.

  2. It was really nice knowing you, Blackberry. With that pricing, only those who have crazy justifications will purchase the phone. It’s not even premium in built quality, look it up in YouTube reviews.

    I’d rather spend my 45k on a Note 5 or a V10 or an S6 Edge Plus and have a phone that has better specs and definitely more premium looking.

    Android phones depreciate really fast, so never spend too much on an Android phone.
