Review RIM BlackBerry Z10 Smartphone


The return of the BlackBerry. After two years of development behi

Stable manufacturing; Great display; Lots of connections; High-performance; Battery times; Intuitive OS; Ease of one-handed use well thought out; Operational controls; Business extras

Glass surface could be stronger; Cameras only average quality; Takes time to become familiarized with the OS; App store selection is limited at the moment

As BlackBerry's flagship, the Z10 comes up against the competition's top models. That includes the Apple iPhone 5, the HTC One X+ and the Samsung Galaxy S3. From the Windows Phone 8 camp that would be the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Samsung ATIV S.

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 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 (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...

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.

BlackBerry Z10 review


The Z10 is a nicely designed handset with a superb touchscreen and good specifications that include LTE and NFC support. The new BlackBerry 10 OS offers a decent user experience once you get used to it, although we'd like to see a physical home button.

High-resolution 4.2in. screen ; Runs the latest BlackBerry 10 OS ; LTE (4G) support ; Includes NFC and a Micro-HDMI port ; Good on-screen keyboard ; BlackBerry Balance will appeal to corporate customers

App store is missing some key software ; No support for Google calendar or contacts ; Expensive

Early reports suggest that the BlackBerry Z10 is selling well, although no official figures are available yet. In the long run, however, the company's chances of maintaining market share are likely to depend on how businesses respond to the new...

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...
