BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Smartphones

BlackBerry Z10 is the first phone based on the brand new BlackBerry 10 platform (Review). The phone comes with an all-touch experience, instead of a QWERTY keyboard usually associated with BlackBerry's.

BlackBerry Z10 comes with a 4.2-inch 1280x768 display (355 ppi) that grows on you as you use the phone. The display isn't the brightest we've used, but the colour reproduction and viewing angles are excellent. Under sun-visibility is good, and reflectivity wasn't a problem.

BlackBerry Z10 comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera capable of recording full-HD video. The overall image quality is pretty decent though not that'll have the likes of iPhone 5 and Lumia 920 looking over their shoulder.

BlackBerry Z10's features are quite comparable with the likes of iPhone 5, Galaxy SIII and Lumia 920. The camera is as good or better and so is the screen resolution or even the specs-2GB RAM instead of 1GB with comparable models from most of the other makers. Only the screen size seems to be a tad smaller, but not significantly so, at 4.2 inches.

Powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, this phone has 2GB RAM, 16GB onboard memory and support microSD cards of capacities up to 64GB.

In the BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry World now gives you access to more of what you love. Download apps, games, music, videos, books, magazines and more. Plus, the new BlackBerry World storefront gives you recommendations so it's easy to find something new.

The new BlackBerry Z10 include Wi-Fi, 2G, 3G, 4G, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0 and NFC. Available in black and white colour options, the phone has a 1,800mAh battery.
