Blackberry Z10 vs Q10
Blackberry seems to have gone guns blazing and is offering top quality smart phones to its users to allow for much flexibility. Among its most recent phones are the Blackberry Z10 and the Blackberry Q10. Just how do the two compare when put to the test? Well, there is no doubt that these two phones are targeted at the high end consumers with the features and the price tag that they attract. These two phones are proof enough that you cannot write off Canadian manufacturer RIM as a serious competitor in the smart phone market with the two phones being released in 2013. Below is a brief analysis of how the two phones compare when put to the test.
The Z10 comes with a 4.2 inch LDC screen that offers a 1280 x 768 resolution which is able to produce an amazing output of 356 pixels per inch. This phone can be said to have a larger screen as opposed to the Q10 as its functionality is through capacitive touch. The Q10 on the other hand is a QWERTY based phone that has a 3.1 inch LCD screen that is able to produce a resolution of 720 x 720 pixels and thus 330 pixels per inch. Both of the phones run on a 1.5 GHz dual core processor and have a RAM of 2 GB. The internal storage of both phones comes at a default 16 GB but if more space is needed, a Micro sim slot is provided for to expand the phone up to 64 GB.
The camera capacities of both phones are also somewhat similar, with both having an 8 MP camera at the back that has the capacity of recording full HD video. At the front, there is a 2 MP camera that manufacturers say it was specifically put in place with the view of allowing for conference calls to take place. One cool feature that can be said of the phone is the Time Shift Mode that allows for adjustment of photos to check the moment that offers the best moment. The phones also run on similar operating system, both making use of the new Blackberry 10 software.
If you need to customize the phone further, the use of blackberry App world can be used as with other models of the phone. It is however a big challenge that Blackberry face, having a platform that does not have numerous users and is not as common as the open source Android market that has been able to pool innovation from developers around the world, offering millions of Apps to make the phone more useful.
Both the phones come with a plastic build that is coated with rubber to give the phones a rich feel and improve the grip that the phone has. There is one big difference that will be noted with these two phones and this is the battery capacity. The Z10 uses an 1800 mAh battery while the Q10 uses a larger battery that has a higher capacity at 2100 mAh.
The ultimate choice that will be made between the two phones will largely not be based on the specifications of the two phones as the above review shows that they are more or less the same but it will largely depend on the preference of whether you prefer a qwerty phone or a full touch screen as both are quite good.
