Review RIM BlackBerry Z10 Smartphone

 

The return of the BlackBerry. After two years of development behind the scenes, the Canadian firm BlackBerry comes back on the market with their brand new BlackBerry 10 OS and their new Z10 model. Outfitted with a high-resolution 4.2-inch display, a...

BlackBerry Z10 Review

 

Some of us have been in a long term relationship with BlackBerry, which began at a time when e-mail became more critical than ever for work, but that love affair has almost tripped over the seven year itch. While most of us might have preferred the...

The display on the Z10 is very impressive. An IPS LCD panel ensures brilliant experience with incredible sharpness on the 4.2-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 768. At 356 ppi, it beats the iPhone 5’s Retina Display and Nokia’s latest flagship,...

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 (T-Mobile)

 

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 it easy to multitask. Excellent multimedia support

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

T-Mobile's version of the BlackBerry Z10 ($99.99) is very similar to the AT&T version. Read our full review of the AT&T BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry 10 OS for an in-depth look. There are a few unique considerations for those considering a BlackBerry...

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 (T-Mobile)

 

The BlackBerry Z10 is a capable smartphone with fantastic multitasking features, but you may have to wait a while for T-Mobile's 4G LTE network to reach your area.

Impressive multitasking capabilities; Convenient BlackBerry Hub serves as universal inbox; Best touchscreen keyboard around; Video chat support for BBM

Dim display; Occasional performance issues; Some apps are watered down compared to iOS and Android; T-Mobile's 4G LTE network just getting off the ground

Click to EnlargeWith the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry 10, the company has created a platform that should not only keep many faithful from jumping ship, but also win some back. In fact, there are some features here that all sorts of smartphone buyers...

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

 

In its 2013 Superbowl spot, BlackBerry went with a whimsical ad that supposedly showed off what the BlackBerry Z10 can't do because 30 seconds is too short a time to show you what it can do. Whether or not this is a misstep is up for marketing...

Comfortable, balanced, and good-looking design ; Efficient operating system ; Good performance ; Well-designed touch keyboard ; Cameras capture quality images and video

Screen is prone to smudges ; BlackBerry World needs more quality apps

Is the BlackBerry Z10 a groundbreaking smartphone? No, but it is a compelling BlackBerry device and runs on a solid new operating system.
