Summary: The BlackBerry Z10 makes an excellent first impression, and is one of the most impressive pieces of hardware for a platform debut in recent memory. BlackBerry 10′s ability to consolidate troves of data into a usable space, the Hub, its powerful development tools and a growing community of loyal developers, along with excellent first-party and launch apps, bodes well for its entry into the Canadian market.
Pros: * Excellent responsive screen * Superb performance * BlackBerry Hub is an incredible information consolidator * BlackBerry 10 feels extremely polished * BBM Video is a treat * First-party apps are top-rate * Great network speeds * Good battery life
Summary: Credit needs to be given to BlackBerry for all the effort that went into putting together the Z10, BlackBerry 10 OS and BlackBerry World. The Z10 is a workable handset with most of the bells and whistles one would expect in a current smartphone. However, unless you are absolutely set on a two-year commitment with a modern BlackBerry, there is little reason to opt for this over an Android device or iPhone.
Pros: On-Screen Keyboard with Predictive Input:, LTE is Fast:, The Hardware:, Durable Design:
Cons: Blackberry 10 OS:, BlackBerry World (Lack of Apps):
Excerpt: So here we are. BlackBerry gifts us with the Z10, one of two “10” models released into the wild, with the other being the touch-and-type Q10. The BlackBerry Z10 is an otherworldly treat, a combination of blood, sweat and gears combined into a user-friendly smartphone that is fast, accessible and brimming with a heady catalyst of ideas. Here’s a BlackBerry you can finally be proud to own.
Conclusion: I tried to be optimistic about the BlackBerry Z10. This was supposed to represent the rebirth of the company and a real push to, at the very least, be seen as a legitimate number three in the world of smartphones behind Android and iOS. The device has been able to attract some new users, to be sure, but we can already see that they’re starting to run low on momentum.
BlackBerry Z10 review: RIM fans will love it; everyone else won't
23 May 2013
Summary: 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.
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Conclusion: This is the first phone review Good e-Reader has ever done. We don’t plan on making it a regular thing. The sole reason why we decided to do it was because we run the second largest Blackberry Playbook and BB10 App Store in the world, so it makes sense. Hardware wise, this is the best phone Blackberry has ever released. The company blends memory, RAM, and a great processor underneath the hood.
Pros: Lightweight, Fast processor, plenty of RAM, Lots of storage space, Snappy interface, Large display screen, Front facing web cam
Cons: Lack of BES and BIS, Reading apps are virtually non-existent, Blackberry App World has piracy issues, Android emulator is outdated, Lack of quality Apps
Summary: 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 powerful Qualcomm S4 SoC and useful extras, the smartphone finally steps onto the stage. Is that enough for it to hold its own amidst the long-established competition?
Pros: 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, The intuitive, one-handed operation and the strong display.
Cons: 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, A real highlight to set the device apart from the masses, and of course, more popular apps transferred from other operating systems.
Conclusion: The BlackBerry Z10 is a great step forward for BlackBerry. It’s innovative to use and truly different to rivals. It’s a great messaging device, thanks to BlackBerry Hub and its keyboard, although a s a first-generation OS there quirks, but hopefully issues can be rectified with software upgrades.
Pros: Solid design, BlackBerry HUB, Intuitive UI, Great connectivity, Keyboard
Cons: Some UI glitches, Limited camera features, UI lacks flexibility
