BlackBerry Z10 review

 

Tasked with saving BlackBerry, can the first BB 10 handset deliver?

Great web browsing ; Expandable storage ; Decent camera ; Messaging hub

Plastic case not premium ; Lack of apps ; UI not for everyone ; Some apps lack features

The BlackBerry Z10 was the first handset from the company formerly known as RIM, now renamed BlackBerry, to run its new operating system BlackBerry 10, and there was much more on the line here than simply making a few pennies – arguably the company's...

BlackBerry Z10 - Pocket-lint

 

The BlackBerry Z10 isn't a bad phone, but there's a lot that only just keeps up with the rest of the market. There are some failings, like battery life,

Great display, phone feels well built, some intuitive features, Time Shift in the camera is great fun

There's nothing you can't find elsewhere, some strange quirks to the UI suggest some holes need plugging, battery life is a serious concern, missing apps means it's a step behind

The BlackBerry Z10 ushers in a new era for BlackBerry. The user experience from the new BlackBerry 10 software is good: it's easy enough to master and navigate around, with BlackBerry's strengths coming to the fore. The messaging system is still...

Is the new BlackBerry Z10 the saviour the brand needs it to be?

We're not going to make any definitive judgments because we haven't yet spent enough time with the Samsung Galaxy S4. Suffice to say that both of these phones offer high-end features and good performance. The Galaxy S4 is more of an all-round...

BlackBerry Z10 vs Apple iPhone 5 comparison video review

 

The iPhone 5's fit and finish are exceptional, with the glass inserts on the rear panel automatically selected from 725 subtly different shapes for the best fit into the aluminium shell.

BlackBerry Z10 review

 

An interesting and well-resolved new operating system and fine build quality, but it's up against some seriously stiff competition

BlackBerry Z10 vs Apple iPhone 5 comparison review

 

The long-awaited new BlackBerry 10 operating system is here and with it, the first smartphone, the BlackBerry Z10. It's crucial that this does well for BlackBerry, but it puts enormous pressure on the Z10 to surpass every expectation, as well as offer...

The BlackBerry Z10 is a good smartphone, but it can't quite match the iPhone 5. The iPhone has (and will always have) more apps to choose from - not just the big hitters, but also the less popular utilities that make your life easier. Given that the...

Nexus 4 vs BlackBerry Z10 smartphone comparison review

 

We put head-to-head the best of Android - that's Google's Nexus 4 - and the best of BlackBerry, the BlackBerry Z10. Spec for spec, which smartphone is best?

The Z10 is a great comeback phone for BlackBerry, with some decent software onboard and a very nice screen. We particularly like the ability to swap in a spare battery, add extra storage and connect to 4G LTE where available. Unfortunately, it can't...
