It was not so long ago that blackberry phones were the only luxury phones in the Nigerian phone market but after the rave of android phones, the Mobile tech giant just seemed to fade away after wowing the world with its Curve, Bold and Torch series.
Their last hype was with the blackberry Q series which caught the eye of most people in this space, and after that was pretty much smoke, recently they have made a comeback and they are mixing functionality with awesomeness.
Gionee has not been sleeping on a bike, they are best known for making strong phone batteries, you can call it their signature move and apart from great batteries there are other amazing features their phones have.
We’ll be dealing with 2017 products of both phone brands, in fact, the two phones were released in October 2017 and you might find them similar but I urge you to look further and you’ll find something that sets them apart.
Representing Blackberry is none other than the Blackberry Motion and representing Gionee will be the Gionee M7. So lets look at the specs and head to the store or click to the store.
