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...

BlackBerry Z10 review

 

One cannot overstate the importance of this phone. This, the BlackBerry Z10, is the device upon which the fate of BlackBerry (formerly Research in

Nice display ; Solid build quality ; Removable battery

Limited app selection ; Slow boot and shutdown ; Underpowered speaker

The BlackBerry Z10 is a better-than-good, but far-from-great smartphone.

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...

Review: BlackBerry Z10 is a bold reimagining of a smartphone

 

The BlackBerry Z10 phone has much to like, but it also makes a few gaffes.

Lovely, responsive display ; New interface is fluid and finger-friendly, as is the on-screen keyboard

Micro-USB port is in an awkward location ; Camera outputs subpar images

The BlackBerry Z10 has its rough spots. Even so, for a first-gen device on a new OS, it's a solid smartphone effort. If you already have a BlackBerry handset, or if your company is about to move to the new Enterprise Service 10, this phone has much to...

BlackBerry Z10 review: a new life, or life support?

 

BlackBerry is about to enter the battle of its life, and as you'll see in my review of its new flagship phone, the Z10, it's using everything in its arsenal to win. Maybe win is the wrong word;...

Clean and solid hardware design ; BlackBerry 10 is a promising new OS ; Keyboard is surprisingly good

Third-party apps leave much to be desired ; New UI tricks don't always pay off ; Battery life is a serious concern

A good phone, but why the Z10? Why now?

BlackBerry Z10 review

 

On January 30, 2013, RIM (Research in Motion) announced that the company will officially be known as BlackBerry.

RIM dug deep to give the slick-looking BlackBerry Z10 enough features to satisfy both consumers and professionals -- like a good camera and a sharp user interface.

The Z10's unintuitive gesture paradigm creates a learning curve, and a long list of OS inefficiencies and omissions sour the experience. The bare-bones maps app and a deficit of camera features are two examples.

Though it's not quite enough to draw committed iPhone or Android owners, the BlackBerry Z10's modern design and features give BlackBerry fans what they've hungered for.

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)
