BlackBerry Z10 Review

 

BlackBerry 10 has come a long way. For months, we’ve seen a sprinkle of information every so often regarding some of BlackBerry 10′s improvements over previous iterations of the operating systems. And last week was when BlackBerry finally...

In short: BlackBerry owners who aren’t afraid of jumping into a device with a touch-screen keyboard will want to check out the BlackBerry Z10. The rest who own an iPhone or Android device should probably stick to what they have.

BlackBerry Z10 (Verizon)

 

The BlackBerry Z10 is a multitasking champ with a slick new interface and a growing app selection, but the battery life and 4G LTE performance could be better.

Strong multitasking capabilities; BlackBerry Hub serves as a universal inbox; Best touch-screen keyboard on the market; Video chat and screen sharing available through BBM

Short battery life; Erratic LTE performance; Occasional performance lag; Some key apps missing

Click to EnlargeThe Verizon Wireless BlackBerry Z10 should satisfy BlackBerry's ravenous fan base and could even bring back former users who fled the brand for greener pastures. This smartphone's touch-screen keyboard is the best around, and the...

BlackBerry Z10 (Verizon Wireless)

A New Hope

 

The new Z10 could save BlackBerry. It won't dethrone Android or put a major dent in Apple's iPhone dominance. But it will make current BlackBerry users happy enough to lay down some cash. They've been waiting for a good shot in the arm for too long,...

BlackBerry Z10 (AT&T)

 

The first BlackBerry 10 handset, the Z10 is a thoroughly modern, high-quality smartphone with a strong focus on messaging, but a lack of popular apps and media could hold it back.

Well-built. "Flow" metaphor makes multitasking easy. Excellent multimedia support.

Hardware is rather generic. Battery life isn't great. Lacks popular apps and media services.

The 1800mAh battery won't satisfy heavy users, so it's a good thing it's removable and that it fills up quickly. I was able to move from almost no charge to 100 percent in three hours. I got 7 hours, 30 minutes of talk time and 3 hours, 7 minutes of...

BlackBerry Z10 (T-Mobile)

 

The BlackBerry Z10 is an incredibly important device, not only for the company formerly known as RIM but also for T-Mobile. For BlackBerry, the Z10 represents a fresh start, with a more modern interface and a touch keyboard that promises to beat them...

BlackBerry Z10 preview: First look

 

The touchscreen revolution wasn't equally kind to all big phone makers. Samsung and Apple were quick to spot the opportunity and got propelled to the top, very much at the expense of the likes of BlackBerry and Nokia. And while the Finns thought the...
