For all the BlackBerry had in getting their Blackberry Messenger ready to compete against the likes of Whatsapp on Android and iOS it stills remains a poorly coded app. After their last update things really took a turn for the worse as i noticed that for my Nova Launcher seemed to redraw itself more regularly on my Galaxy Note 3 which has 3GB of on board RAM. On checking the Application manager i found the culprit which had managed to use over 300MB of RAM, rebooting my phone seemed to solve the problem but three hours later and a few messages sent it had managed to use 210MB of RAM, which is ridiculous considering that this is just a mere chat app not a graphics intensive game, comparing it to the other chats that i had on my phone like Whatsapp which used about 10MB of RAM and Facebook messenger which used just a little above 24MB.
Please BlackBerry fix your app .

In a time when flagship devices are starting to cost the same as a plot of land and Nokia is sell you a palasa phone for more than 40K. It's quite refreshing to see an OEM that doesn't have its head too far up its arse and that is why Xiaomi will always have a special place in my heart. While i don't own any of their devices, i do love what they are doing. But this story isn't about them and i do love a great bargain.
About a week ago, i sighted something unusual on my mobile carrier's phone page and it was this beauty.
I couldn't believe my eyes and i had to ask their customer service and granted this isn't the iPhone XS MAX or the Galaxy Note 10, i thought that was an exceptionally good offer as i needed a backup device with my old Galaxy Note3 now refusing to power up. I admit it's no iPhone 11, Galaxy S10 or any of the latest Android
Flagship smartphones but I'm rather impressed by my latest buy. I
managed to snag this little beauty fro…
For quite sometime now I have been rather unenthuse with the crop of
phones (smartphones) been released. Even with all the features that the
likes of Samsung, Apple, Hauwei and the likes tried to talk up during
their release events. Each new device has felt like pretty much the same.
at this year's IFA, Nokia or HMD announced a new flip phone which
piqued my interest. However that interest was short-lived when I saw the
price of the said phone. And ever since then it has left me wondering
who HMD (Nokia) makes these devices for.
Especially since these not quite feature phones cost just as much
as an affordable Android phone. At €89, the 2720 isn't exactly what you
would call affordable especially when you could buy a Xiaomi Redmi Go
for €80, an even more capable Redmi 6A at €90 or even the Nokia 2.2
which costs €90. On the KaiOS side of things, a similarly speced phone
from say energizer costs a third of the price of the Nokia 2720 at €30.
