BlackBerry Z10 vs Apple iPhone 5

0. phoneArena 07 Feb 2013, 05:15 posted on

Crazy to imagine it nonetheless, but we finally have a hotly contested BlackBerry smartphone that’s worthy of being pitted against the greats in the industry. Although it’s still a while before it makes its presence in the US, the BlackBerry 10 trotting Z10 is making some noise of late, and knowing that, it’s bound to catch the iPhone 5’s direct gaze...

Next time a reviewer who has an unbiased point of view should do the review.
More and more I read this, I get a sense that this reviewer sleeps with his iPhone 5 in his bed.

The one thing in this comparison that really bothers me is the mention of apple's map app being better than blackberry's. Are you kidding me? Did you forget when the iphone 5 came out how inacurate their native map app was, how many ppl complained and they had to switch back to google?

Yes, blackberry's map app is "barebones"...what ever the hell that means, but it's absolutely accurate, and that is what I need out of my app map. Not pretty graphics while I'm driving off a cliff due to wrong directions like iphone5s. Check your facts before you make stupid claims.

Hmmm.....the camera sucks, the battery sucks. What happens if you're actually using the video camera quite a bit? The battery dumps instantly before you're done uploading the video to YouTube?

howcome each time the iphone gets compared to any other phone it just magically wins ?

in this site the blackberry clearly is listed with high amount of battery capacity 1800 mAh and has more talk time 3G than the iphone with 1440 mAh capacity ... is it that they paid you guys to do this biased review or you guys just are iphone fan boys ...

and also the blackberry has a better processor and double the ram on the iphone

oh and for the micro SD users it still has these in it

you guys seriously made me make this account to point out ur biased review ... stop making these kinds of misleading reviews .. just be fair for the love of god ! ...

Its not the capacity of the battery , its the optimizations done to the software to make use of the capacity . Its also not the clock speed or dual or quad core type of the processor that makes a device fast , its the optimizations made to the software that make a device slow or fast . Eg : A quad core processor in the One X or One X+ is still not faster than the iPhone 5 because the iPhone 5 is optimized to take advantage of that dual core A6 chip & the One X is not quite optimized . I'm not an Apple fanboy , I own a Lumia 920 , but don't just say the review is biased because it is fair & true . The iPhone 5 may not be the best phone in the world , but it is better than the Z10 & thats what John V is trying to convey here .

Personally I think the z10 is the best phone iv used had an iPhone 5 thought it sucked had galaxy note 2 which I loved, iPhone is just full of restrictions and to the person who said iPhone is better optimised has no idea the z10's os is so smooth never crashed once however I phones do it quite regularly only way I think iPhone beats the z10 is the amount of apps however I still have my galaxy note 2 and because android has a better app store I have the best of both worlds
