BlackBerry Aurora Price

Expert Review

BlackBerry has rolled out a new mid range Android phone called “Aurora”. It is not yet released in the India, but the BlackBerry Aurora price in India may be priced at Rs.17,499/. This smartphone is exclusively designed, manufactured, and marketed by BB Merah Putih and to start with the device will be available in Indonesia.The handset is available in multiple color variants like in silver, black, and gold.The best thing about this handset is that it packs in BlackBerry Hub -  an integrated messaging inbox. One can read emails, text messages and social networking handles like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook through a single interface. There is no need to install separate apps.

Processor:

In order to provide mobile phone users with a perfect and trouble-free performance, the BlackBerry Aurora is driven by a 1.4GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 425 chipset and comes with 4GB RAM. So one can work on more than two apps simultaneously without impacting the speed of the handset.

Camera:

It is fitted with a 13MP rear camera and comes with dual LED flash. This helps you to capture clear quality images even during dim-light conditions. It has an 8MP front facing selfie snapper - very useful to take selfies and also for video calling.

Design and Display:

BlackBerry Aurora boasts of a 5.5-inch HD 2.5D curved glass display. The provision of HD display is not so exciting because users will not be able to exploit the potential of the display real estate completely.With a weight of 178 grams, the rounded edges on all sides of the handset ensure ease of handling. The company logo resides at the front beneath the capacitive keys. A fingerprint sensor is not available on the smartphone which is disappointing as there are many handsets in this price band that come with a fingerprint sensor. The handset comes with connectivity options like microUSB 2.0 port, GPS, dual-SIM support, 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0.

Storage:

For storing apps and files, the handset is fitted with 32GB of default storage. You can extend the storage space up to 256GB using microSD cards.

Battery:

The smartphone ships with a non-removable Li-Ion 3,000mAh battery, this can provide a  talk time of around 12 hours. For the price it comes with the phone’s battery seems underpowered. Competitors provide nothing less than 3300 mAh in this price range.

Verdict:

BlackBerry Aurora presents a decent specification in mid range space. This will be an ideal smartphone for phone users who seek large massive space coupled with high-end features. The native storage of 32GB is great for users to start with as they can install apps with ease. The inclusion of Android Nougat is a good decision by the company as one can experience all the features of this latest Android operating system.
