BlackBerry lover Kim Kardashian announced on the internet that her beloved BlackBerry Bold just died, but there are still several options that she can choose to replace her deal Bold with.
Replace it with a BlackBerry
Recently, the popular star’s favorite smartphone broke, and she could not find her beloved Bold on eBay.
“Sooo my blackberry bold [sic] died. I can’t find anymore on ebay [sic]. I knew this day would come & to be honest I’m prepared. But the question is…,” Kardashian tweeted. “Do I try a different kind of blackberry? Or ditch it all together? Or a different phone like Samsung?”
CNET has suggested some good replacements for her.
Kardashian is a BlackBerry fan, so what better than a Classic to replace Bold? If she is considering the Priv, BlackBerry’s first ever Android phone, and the Classic, then she should go for the latter, according to CNET, as it is not as top heavy as the Priv. Also the Classic has the QWERTY keypad and trackpad that she is already used to, and if she wants user privacy due to her fan following, then both phones will work for her.
Both smartphones support Android apps, unlike other handsets by the Waterloo-based company, which means she can use the device to play Pokemon Go or Kim Kardashian Hollywood.
Other available options
The Blackphone focuses mostly on security. The extra privacy and encryption might be a nice change for Kardashian as she has ridiculous amounts of paparazzi flying drones over her house just to get her and her family’s pictures.
Another great replacement could be the Galaxy Note 7. Kim runs a media engine, and thus, she needs a phone that can help her manage her business. The Galaxy Note 7 is possibly just the right phone for that. It is waterproof and comes with a stylus, but it’s not on sale yet. The handset comes in many different colors, “and its contoured edges are only rivaled by your signature contoured makeup technique,” says CNET. She can also go for the 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge if the 5.7-inch Note 7 is a bit too big.
Another option could be the HTC 10, which comes with premium BoomSound technology for both audio speakers and in-ear sound. It has better speakers than most other smartphones, “so whether you’re listening to rough cuts or final versions, music (and secretly recorded phone conversations) will sound the best on this handset,” says CNET.
Update: a sentence that said Blackphone is not available to consumers yet, has been removed.
