BlackBerry Q10 - Pocket-lint

 

The BlackBerry Q10 is our BlackBerry of choice, delivering a great communication experience. But it lacks alongside rival smartphone platforms in other

Design, improved camera, some nice UI features, the keyboard experience is still great

Battery life doesn't seem as good as it should be, the UI can at times be fiddly, there's a lack of apps available, it's a little on the chunky side

Set alongside the BlackBerry Bold, we'd take the BlackBerry Q10 any time. It's a step forward for BlackBerry's Qwerty device, it offers the reassurance of a physical keyboard that's great to use, with tried and tested shortcuts, and improvements to...

BlackBerry Q10 review

 

Is the keyboard the key to BB 10 success?

Full physical keyboard ; Impressive web speeds ; Updated BB10 ; Decent battery life

Odd screen size ; Lack of apps ; Very expensive ; Not great for games/movies

The Q10 combines the best of BlackBerry's new operating system with a keyboard, but it's expensive and apps are lacking

The first QWERTY keyboard BB10 phone is here. Is it any good?

Physical QWERTY interface, Strong 8-megapixel rear camera, Fluid keyboard and touchscreen combination
