Is the BlackBerry Z10 a groundbreaking smartphone? No, but it is a compelling BlackBerry device and runs on a solid new operating system.
I have been using the Z10 for few days and am finding things I really like about the OS and device and a few things I don’t.
- I love how I can have several services set up and keep in touch with people in one central place on the phone – Blackberry Hub
- All platforms it’s own great keyboards. However, the keyboard implantation on BlackBerry 10 is unique and efficient – BlackBerry Keyboard
- The camera software is pretty basic and so far photos look OK, but not great – Blackberry Camera
- The lack of apps, many big apps aren’t available at all – Blackberry Apps
- The battery life is good, even in 4G mode – Blackberry Battery
- I love the “peek” gesture which shows the number of messages
- The web browser is solid and fast – Blackberry Browser
- You can share your screen with other BB10 devices via BlackBerry Messenger, by holding the volume up and volume down keys Now that’s SMART!
- The select, copy and paste is BAD!
- The BBM has been a cornerstone of the BlackBerry experience for years, and it gets a revamp with BlackBerry 10, not to forget the BBM video call which is not yet enabled here . This revamp is kind of confusing and hard to get used to. – Blackberry Messenger.
I strongly believe that the Z10 should still stand up well to the competition …
