BlackBerry is trying hard to regain the lost diadem it seems. Once, the professionals and he business men alike chose the BB smartphones. BlackBerry phone decided the status of the person. Now, things have changed. The title of the prestigious smartphone gave way to Apple, Samsung and so many. But still, BlackBerry is BlackBerry. With its Z10 and Q10, the company is trying for a strong coming back. Other than these two smartphones, the company has launched BlackBerry Q5 smartphone too. Let's go through the features of BB Z10 and Q10 and find out which one is better.
At its looks and design, both the smartphones have entirely different outlook. The Z10 is an all touch screen smartphone. Falling in the line of the latest trend, the touchscreen has so many followers. On the other hand, the Q10 smartphone has a qwerty key pad. Though the QWERTY key pad is not that welcomed in the latest market, there is a certain bunch of people, who still crave for the physical key board than the touch screen one. So, its hard to say which one is best. It all depends up on the personal like. If you are a person who likes touch screens, the you should go for the BB Z10. If you would be happier with a physical QWERTY key pad, then your choice must be BB Q10.
When comes to its hardware part, both the devices have more or less the same internals. They are similar in processor, RAM, memory options and camera. Both the smartphones have 1.5 GHz dual core processor with 2GB RAM. They have 16 GB internal storage facility, with expandable memory up to 32GB. Both have micro USB and micro HDMI ports and similar camera features with 8MP rear camera and 2 MP front camera. In this matters too, it is not easy to differentiate the two. Even the positioning of their buttons are similar.
It is in the display and battery that the two phones really differ. The BB Z10 has a 4.2-inch 720p LCD display. The BB Q10 has a 3.1 inch Super AMOLED display. Here the advantage is obvious. The Z10 scores here with the bigger display and the display technology. The bigger screen will be desirable for better browsing experience, viewing pictures, watching videos etc. If you are a person who doesn't want all these then you can go for the Q10. If not for all these, then why are you buying a smartphone, man? So, in short, when it comes to the display screen size, the BB Z10 is the clear winner.
But this has got an other side too. If a person is buying a smartphone for the above mentioned reasons, he will never go for a BB device, right? There are thousands of smartphones out in the market with better screen resolution and display. BB devices are known for their brand name. No easy go lucky fellows will own a BB. The smaller screen of the BB Q10 will be a blessing when it comes to the battery life. As we all know, the smaller and the simple the display be, the longer will be the battery life. The BB Q10 has a 2,100mAh battery, which is all the more better than the 1,800 mAh battery of the BB Z10 smartphone. Obviously the better battery belongs to the Q10. Its small screen and AMOLED display saves the power and the device has a pretty lengthy battery life than the BB Z10.As both the devices are running BB10 operating system, a comparison is not possible there.
Summing up, we feel that the BB Z10 is the better phone among the two. The Q10 might have been the best if it was released a few months ago. Physical QWERTY key pad is really out dated now. Considering the era in which we live and of course the recent trends, the BB Z10 is a more 2013 smartphone than the BB Q10. And also, the trend in the smartphone, market is to fall for the bigger screened devices. Here too, the BB Z10 has got an upper hand over the BB Q10 smartphone.
Which one is better, BlackBerry Z10 or Q10?
