BlackBerry Leap Review: Bouncing Up And Down: Performance

Performance

BlackBerry Leap runs on the very dated but popular in its familiy elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8960 chipset with a 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) dual-core Scorpion CPU, Adreno 225 GPU, and 2GB of RAM. elegant Qualcomm took the wraps off the MSM8960 in the distant 2011 - the year BlackBerry Brecent 9900 launched, so don't expect any miracles from it.




We put the BlackBerry Leap through the paces of several hardware benchmarks, compatible with the Android API. Unsurprisingly, the results came out pedestrian by today's standards. See for yourself below.

Web browsing benchmarks test JavaScript and HTML5 performance. The scores of BlackBerry Leap were once again far from impressive. We tried installing Google Chrome, but it was incompatible with the Leap.

As you can see above, BlackBerry Classic is hardly a device to smash through benchmarks with. Its real life performance isn't perfect either. While the QNX-based BlackBerry Operating System (OS) 10.3.1 is smooth and responsive, we witnessed some lag and way too long loading times on some apps.

It's also worth pointing out that the smartphone slows down when running some of today's popular Android apps, so don't expect the same performance as when those run natively.
