Review:Blackberry Passport Red Edition in 2017

bb2

Blackberry Passport is a masterpiece! I totally fall in love with this device since it launched in June 2014. At that time, I thought this was it! Time to move on from my Blackberry Dakota. Is a very pleasant journey between me and Blackberry Dakota at that time. Time goes on, I have to deal with a lot of email and I guess my Dakota can’t handle it anymore. Yes, I also have a problem with the battery. So I don’t think twice to buy a Passport especially The Red Edition! Yes time to say goodbye to Dakota! The real reason why I love Blackberry Passport because the size! Plus, after they launched the red edition, I really in love with that phone. We had a roller coaster relationship. Even all of my colleagues really had no clue why I buy that big phone! But I have no doubt at all.

After 3 years, I still in love with Passport! But, all the bad news just come to fast when they stop most of the apps in BB 10. So, yeah! I have no clue. Maybe some of you said why I don’t change with Priv or Dtek. Simple reason, because in Indonesia they (Blackberry) don’t launch it officially. So I better skip that! Until Aurora comes out! And yes, after all this year, I‘m still in love with the blackberry.

The Idea: During my last day with Blackberry Passport, I just want to review, is it still worth it using Blackberry Passport or Blackberry 10 in 2017. So here we go!

BB1

Positive:

  1. Blackberry Hub is still the best! Sorry Android, even you provide the email also but somehow the Email in Blackberry still works very flawless!
  2. The audio! No clue, i still fall in love with the audio! Loud like always!
  3. The battery is a beast! Don’t forget the keyboard is hilarious! The best damn keyboard ever!
  4. The red edition is totally must have!!!!!!!!

Negative:

  1. The apps are not kool at all!  I mean you can’t find any facebook, what’s app, snapchat, instagram! Sounds simple but totally cut throat for the business. I have no clue why Blackberry don’t do anything about this. Sorry, not sorry! You seem to very enjoy to lose in the battle!
  2. If you watching the video or the youtube you will realize that the screen have a big black gap because the ratio of the screen! Until now they don’t fix the problem with any updates! Like don’t give a damn about it!
  3. The camera is pity! Very slow for auto-focus and the color seems washout! Still no updates…

Conclusion: Well, if you are only looking for a phone for email and do some phone call, well, perhaps Blackberry Passport or Blackberry 10 is a perfect device for you. But if you are looking for more well you have many options in the market nowadays either Android phone or another blackberry who’s run Android.

Review: Blackberry Aurora

20170523-1014159820.jpg

Monologue: Who does not like the Blackberry? Everyone must have many memories of this one mobile phone. But that’s the past and most likely, you’ve used this device in early 2000. But can you imagine if you use Blackberry at this time?

This will be a very cliche question, but are you still using this device in 2017? If the pulse is yes, chances are you only use it just to receive or send E-mail only. It also can be ascertained that your Blackberry is not the new one but old devices that you may not sell because it is not valuable. And I guarantee most of the Blackberry device is still running the operating system Blackberry 7 or 10.

But times have changed, Blackberry is very aware of this. Although they are late in making a change but for me, their products are still the best. The good news again, they have started to apply the Android operating system into their homemade products such as Aurora Blackberry will be discussed on this occasion.

20170523-964928415.jpg

The Idea: BlackBerry Aurora combines all you expect from a BlackBerry smartphone with all the apps and great experience from Android. First in Indonesia (only) with dual micro simcard which gives operator choice more variety and best experience of messaging integrated on Android.

BlackBerry is equipped with Android Operating System 7 Nougat, which provides a more interesting experience in playing these smartphone features. With a wide screen width of 5.5 inches, allows users to access the menu, watch videos and play these smartphone features with more leverage.

Positive:

  1. We love the case. It’s grip and nice also brilliant. And don’t forget that Blackberry also bring 2,5D glass to this phone. In this case, many of my friends didn’t notice that Aurora is Blackberry, and even worst they think this phone is a premium phone because all the materials they used are perfect.
  2. Rear camera: 13 megapixels (phase detection auto focus, dualtone led flash, CMOS sensor) and front camera: 8 megapixels with led flash are brilliant when compared to the products at the same level.
  3. Simcard Slot: Dual micro Simcard active in the same time (4G – 2G), OS: Android 7 Nougat,  and memory: 4 GB RAM.
  4. Blackberry Hub and of corse the Email, what else! And yes it’s Blackberry!
  5. The speakers are brilliant! It’s so damn loud when you set the volume > 50%. If you set less then that you will hear nothing, seriously! Don’t ask me why? It just happen like that! No clue!

Negative:

  1. Chipset: Baseband MSM8917 Chipset 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 425. Yes it’s very embarrassing, why? Because if you think it can play the game so well, better think twice ore more before you buy this phone. In my case, I can’t open dinner dash and play it even worst I can’t watch a movie from iFlix. But for Netflix i have no problem at all. So weird! And the price is a lil bit higher compare to the other phone who used this chipset. So this phone is not really fun for entertainment!
  2. No fast charging! You need like two hours to charge the phone from 5% to 100%.
  3. Display: 5.5 inch, HD resolition 720×1280 (268 ppi pixel density). I mean this is 2017, at least full HD. But so far, I don’t find this problem is very annoying to me.

Conclusion: For me, this is an appropriate step for Blackberry. It is undeniable that this product has some very disturbing notes, especially in the use of Chipset. But apart from all that, this product has accompanied me as main device. I have no problem to open any messages, email, youtube, or anything else (beside the iFlix, of corse). I love it. Yes it’s not a flagship phone but I must say this phone is almost perfect. Feels very comfortable and premium. Although today many people are very anti using this product, but for me this product just feels very classy because it’s not mainstream product. So when most of the people said my phone look so good and they asked what it that. With pride, I will answer, “It is Blackberry, Bitch!”

God of Egypt: Teenager Taste

image

The Idea: The survival of mankind hangs in the balance when Set, the merciless god of darkness, usurps Egypt’s throne and plunges the prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. Hoping to save the world and rescue his true love, a defiant mortal named Bek forms an unlikely alliance with the powerful god Horus. Their battle against Set and his henchmen takes them into the afterlife and across the heavens for an epic confrontation.

Positive:
1. We love the epic story!
2. The effect is good!

image

Negative:
1. The cast are so so. We mean they can improved and we lost the connection between them. Somehow they are connected and sometimes they don’t. So yes, so so!
2. The story line also sucks, we think that’s why all the cast can’t improve their characters. Too bad ya!

image

Conclusion: This movie is so so, nothing special! You watch this for fun, we think it’s more for a teenager segment, who wants something light and fairy tale. So if you can skip this movie and wait in your cable television.

13 Hours: Life Reflection

image

The Idea: On Sept. 11, 2012, Islamic militants attack the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, killing Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and Sean Smith, an officer for the Foreign Service. Stationed less than one mile away are members of the Annex Security Team, former soldiers assigned to protect operatives and diplomats in the city. As the assault rages on, the six men engage the combatants in a fierce firefight to save the lives of the remaining Americans.

Positive:
1. The effect and bombing things are perfect. Michael Bay know how to entertain the audience.
2. The cast are fantastic like always, well they play with the emotion plus it based on the true story so it’s inspiring for the audience.
3. The story line was fantastic, simple but meaning. The script also detail to describe how the military survived and safe the hostages. It brings the emotion to the audience.
4. We must say the makeup team are hilarious. The customs and the setting place also good.
5. We love all the cars in the movie.

image

Negative:
1. We don’t like the camera angle when they want to safe the hostages in America embassy. I know Michael wants to make it more dramatic but feel not right. It’s kinda disturbing.
2. When the military Skype with their family, some of them using a BlackBerry Dakota. Which is it’s sounds so impossible (because I’m a BlackBerry fans so I know it very well). I mean they need and must pay attention to the details, specially Bay in charged for this. It feels so shameful.

image

Conclusion: It’s a good movie, yes they brought their nationality to this movie but it more than that. I mean in my opinion it more focused to the responsibility, not to your country but the loyalty to your team and what the things that you like most. I see this as a reflection, so why not to have a sit for a couple hours and think what have you done in your life with this movie!

Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. In order to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.

Positive:
1. We think from the story line it getting better, and have a lot of surprise. They bring all the details but enough also the script bring the characters into one pieces.
2. We love the customs, setting place, audio, editing, and yes the effect.
3. Robert Schwentke is a good director, we think!

image

Negative:

image

Conclusion: We love this movie compared to The Hunger Games, yes we know when we see the profit is not good enough! But hey, this movie is good to watch, and have a very lovely action things. It depends on personal choice I guess. At least this movie won’t fail you!

The Idea: After the death of the British prime minister, the world’s most powerful leaders gather in London to pay their respects. Without warning, terrorists unleash a devastating attack that leaves the city in chaos and ruins. Secret Service agent Mike Banning springs into action to bring U.S. President Benjamin Asher to safety. When Asher falls into the hands of the sinister organization, it’s up to Banning to save his commander in chief from a horrible fate.

Positive:
1. We like the idea of the story line. It gave us a clue how hard the protocol to protect the president.
2. They used a great cast, and they played well in this movie.
3. The script, they brought their nationality with them in this movie. It was great, but something missing.
4. The audio was amazing! We love when the bomb are bombing!

image

Negative:
1. Event they have a good cast, but the story line not strong enough! I mean really Mike a.k .a Gerard Butler was totally like super human, I mean can you make more realistic. Plus they missing the details because they are focused with the bomb things.
2. The effects are sucks! Too computer thing! I mean like seriously they can do better than this!

image

Conclusion: Is not a bad movie, we put this as entertaining movie. Yes it’s action and full of guns, but too impossible. So when you watch the movie just don’t expect more like the previous movie, because it will not happen. So sit back and enjoy your popcorn, simple as it!
