Call Quality:

Love talking a lot on the phone? Well, if you do, then you’ll be glad to know that you can go with either device, since voices on both ends are audible, noise-free, and clean toned. However, all is not perfect in the speakerphone department, as the Z10’s output is strained in tone – while the Galaxy S III tends to exhibit some over-sharpness with voices.


Bigger screens tend to be battery hogs, but in this comparison, we actually find the Galaxy S III to put out the better battery life. Of course, we can argue that it can be attributed to its larger 2,100 mAh battery, but in any event, we’re able to get by through a day of normal usage with it. In comparison, the 1,800 mAh battery of the Z10 allows us only 10 hours of normal usage before it requires a recharge.


Can BlackBerry do what Google did to it back in 2008? Although some might be quick to draw a foreseeable demise to BlackBerry, there’s still hope, of course, especially when Google made it on top. Needless to say, it’s funny in how some things turn out. No one said it would be easy to start fresh (again), but as long as BlackBerry can push out timely updates to enhance its new experience, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, but then again, we all know how webOS turned out.

So what device should you call your own right now? Seeing that these two are priced at $200 on-contract, it’s not all that difficult to point out the extensive set of features you’re going to get with the Samsung Galaxy S III. From the various software enhancements attached to its TouchWiz Nature UX experience, to the way Android as a whole adheres to the needs of power users, there’s a whole lot of bang for the buck put out by Sammy’s flagship. Still, if you opt to go with the BlackBerry Z10, there are some compromises that you’re going to make. It’s not perfect, obviously, but when there’s a minimum expectation, it’s hard to find valid arguments to point out the Z10’s superiority. Nevertheless, there’s always hope, hope for a better tomorrow.
