BlackBerry Z10 Review


The Z10 is a fully touchscreen BB10 device sporting modern specs, with cool patterned soft-touch material on the back. The screen is 4.2" LCD with 1280 x 768 pixels, making for a pixel density of 356 pixels per inch. A 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM are the power under the hood, and there are 16 GB of internal storage, as well as the all-important microSD card slot. You will need all the RAM, because BB10 is a true multitasking system, like Android, so everything remains how you left it, or moves on under the hood, but is available at all times.

This device is also known as BlackBerry Surfboard, BlackBerry London, BlackBerry STL100-4

Phone owned for - less than a month

It's very good! But there's some things I don't like about this phone: GPS is unstable, hardly getting out of full screen, and can't find a mobile network. Multimedia is great stuff that it has youtube and I want to use it each day for some more

Good Blackberry Phone
Phone owned for - more than a year

I use this phone since 2014, I feel comfortable with Blackberry Build Quality and really love this phone.

I use this phone mainly for chatting (BBM+WA) and checking emails.

I had problem also with the OS where my Z10 rarely show 100% charged when being charged (the LED rarely show green light).

Also when receiving phone call, i can't hear my caller sounds clearly and it's also happened to my friend that using Z10.

Also, the battery life and capacity sometimes not enough for a full day use.

And, the Blackberry Hub is a good feature for me because I can control everything from 1 panel

Surprisingly bad
Phone owned for - more than a year

As a former Blackberry fan, I would always look for the next BB device that will give Android and Apple a run for their money. I thought this one almost did it. The Hardware and Software was really bad, the phone was super lag. Lack of app support was the deal breaker for this device in my opinion
