I don’t mean to sound arrogant, I just always wanted to use this for a blog post title! I have been meaning to write about my BlackBerry Bold for over 2 years now but somehow I never got around to do so. It might seem pointless now as I’m getting an iPhone soon but actually is the reason I’m posting it still.
I have been a BlackBerry user for 3 years in a row and I’m really going to miss this baby. My first smartphone was the Sony Ericsson Xperia, boy what an Epic mistake was that!!! My advise: never choose design over comfort with cellphones! This phone was as slow as a Windows computer and way to heavy for a girl.
Back then when I stood before the choice of BlackBerry and Apple (sorry, these are the only two smartphone options for me) I went with BlackBerry as I could not get used to a touchscreen. What a big relief using a BlackBerry was!!! Still is, as for comfort in usage I think BlackBerry will remain my number one phone and after 2 years I’m still quite fond of the male-business design the Bold has. Typing goes super fast and effortless with this keyboard, oh touchscreen, will I ever get used to you?
So now I stand before the choice of BlackBerry and Apple again and find myself forced to switch ‘fruits’. Don’t get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against Apple but part of me would have liked to be able to choose the iPhone on my own.
This last year I haven’t been able to pick up my Apple mail on my BlackBerry, which is a pain in the ass, specially in the digital world we live in today. Also synchronizing with my Apple computer is not possible anymore, therefore my contact list is a mess and I don’t have access to my calendar. So yes, all the more reason to choose an iPhone. Oh and Instagram!
Sorry for the melodramatic blog post ( I just had to get it off my chest haha). I’m gonna leave you with an image which describes the comfort of a BlackBerry (before the Apple blockage) to me:

Thank you for bearing with me and if you like, comment below which one is your favorite cellphone and why!
