BlackBerry Z10 vs Apple iPhone 5

Camera:

After snapping up the same set of shots with their 8-megapixel cameras, we determine that the iPhone 5 is the more well-rounded performer. As a whole, shots taken outdoors with sufficient lighting come out nice with both, but details are slightly sharper looking with the iPhone 5’s snapped images – in comparison to the dull tones seen with details of the Z10. Meanwhile, there’s more saturation evident in the Z10’s snapshots as well. And finally, the iPhone 5 shows its worth in low lighting conditions, as it’s better able to produce photos that are brighter – while still drawing out details.

Moving onto 1080p video recording quality, it’s downright a long shot win for the iPhone 5. In fact, it’s the consistency of producing sharp visuals that really stand out between the two. Well, the artifacting elements seen with the Z10’s production also stand out, but not to its advantage. Rather, it dramatically softens its details to the point that speckling becomes prominent.

True, there’s not much separating the presentation of their music players while listening to songs, but for a platform that’s employing more visual eye candy, we’re disappointed to see a stale player with the Z10. Obviously, cover flow mode with the iPhone 5 continues to impress us in this day and age, which is significantly more pleasing. Going back to Apple’s prodigy, the audio quality of the iPhone 5’s speaker is easily the preferred with its slightly stronger output and cleaner tones.

With only two-tenths of an inch separating the size of their displays, it doesn’t matter as much when watching videos. In fact, the size difference is negligible here, and instead, it’s the iridescent glow of their displays, and excellent playback performance, that captures our attention the most.
