BlackBerry Q10 Review

 

One of BlackBerry's (BB) key strengths, other than their BBM service, has been their keyboards. Their previous generation handsets may have been a little behind the curve in terms of features and specifications, but their keyboards have more often than...

The version of Q10 available in India will be powered by a TI OMAP 4470 SoC, which consists of a dual-core CPU running at 1.5GHz. The LTE version of the Q10 will come with a Qualcomm chipset instead. BlackBerry World might not have the vast repertoire...

Notebookcheck's Best of May 2013 - Notebooks and Convertibles

 

Calm before the storm. The wait for Intel's Haswell generation shrunk the volume of our devices for review - we had a grand total of 15 test devices this month. But we certainly didn't have a dearth of exciting convertibles (an 18-incher!), elegant...

How slim the case appears to be thanks to clever design

Review BlackBerry Q10 Smartphone

 

Back to its roots. BlackBerry has successfully launched the vanguard of its new OS Blackberry 10 with the Z10 model. Now the Canadian manufacturer introduces the Q10 - a purebred business smartphone. The hardware is largely identical, but the Q10 wants...

The brightness of the display could have been better, The quality of the cameras is only average, The store must be filled more, Slightly brighter display, preferably similar to the luminous one in the BlackBerry Z10

BlackBerry Q10 Review

 

We review the BlackBerry Q10, the first BlackBerry 10 device to feature a physical QWERTY keyboard.

feel like there isn’t enough in BlackBerry 10 to warrant jumping ship, that is, unless you have been fumbling with a virtual keyboard and have yet to feel comfortable. In that case, I feel the BlackBerry Q10 would be the perfect reason for you to jump...

BlackBerry Q10 review

 

While the Z10 can be seen as BlackBerry's bid to attract new, hip users, the BlackBerry Q10 should supposedly appeal to old-school BB lovers who are ready to dump their Bolds and Curves for something better. Instead of a large, all-touch experience,...

Comfortable, compact design ; Great keyboard (if you don't have fingernails) ; Made for messaging ; Speedy performance ; Long battery life

Display not bright enough ; Interface doesn't work well on smaller screen ; BlackBerry World still has mediocre selection of apps

BlackBerry Q10 (T-Mobile)

 

The BlackBerry Q10 smartphone is a laser-focused niche product for messaging enthusiasts, and T-Mobile offers it for the lowest price of any major carrier.

Unparalleled hardware keyboard. Excellent messaging. High-quality Web browser

Limited app support. Mediocre cameras. No Wi-Fi calling

BlackBerry's new Q10 smartphone is almost exactly the same across the big four wireless carriers, but T-Mobile has a compelling argument to put forth: the lowest up-front and ongoing prices for BlackBerry service. T-Mobile's version also adds HD Voice...

BlackBerry Q10 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The BlackBerry Q10 smartphone is a laser-focused niche product for messaging enthusiasts.

Unparalleled hardware keyboard. Excellent messaging. High-quality Web browser

Limited app support. Mediocre cameras

The BlackBerry Q10 ($199.99 with contract) stands alone. It's in a category of one. It's hard to compare the Q10 to other smartphones because it won't appeal to the average smartphone buyer, just as the target buyer for the Q10 is dissatisfied with the...

Verizon BlackBerry Q10 Review

 

I certainly don’t dislike the Q10, but I’m not sure I could go back to a physical keyboard after I’ve been using touchscreen-based keyboards for a few years now. However, the Q10 is still a great device, and it’s definitely the BlackBerry handset to...

BlackBerry Q10 review: There and back again

 

Some revolutions end in triumph, others in tyranny. It's a walk on the edge of a blade between glory and the guillotine. And BlackBerry has had its share of revolutions - the most recent ones being the rebranding and the OS gone touch-only two...

Four-row hardware QWERTY keyboard ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, tri/quad-band UMTS/HSPA, 100 Mbps LTE ; 3.1" 16M-color 720p (720 x 720 pixels) Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen ; Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait, 2GB RAM, Adreno 225 (LTE version) /Dual-core 1.5...

Brand new UI has a steep learning curve ; BlackBerry Maps may be even worse than Apple Maps ; No FM radio ; BlackBerry World is still missing key apps ; Screen size is too small by today's standards and the 1:1 aspect is awkward for video watching

The BlackBerry Q10 is an easy phone to appreciate - in fact, if you have the right bit of old-fashioned in you, it's an easy phone to love. It's skillfully designed and adequately powered, a modern take on a traditional aesthetic, the next installment...

BlackBerry Q10 review

 

If you're a fan of keyboard-equipped BlackBerry smartphones, you won't be disappointed by the Q10. However the app store needs filling out and the small, square screen isn't ideal for some uses.

Excellent QWERTY keyboard ; Some compelling keyboard-based features ; LTE, NFC and HDMI support ; BlackBerry Balance keeps business and personal usage separate

BlackBerry World needs more apps ; Small 3.1-inch screen

Conclusion Those who held out for the BlackBerry Q10 following the launch of the Z10 won't be disappointed. The excellent keyboard and clever ideas like Type and Go should make 'classic' BlackBerry fans happy. However the BlackBerry World app store...
