Blackberry Z10 – Specs, Features and Review of Blackberry 10 OS

The Blackberry Z10 smartphone was introduced to the world a few days back, and it came with some of the neat features in the new Blackberry 10 operating system, while We had initial thoughts of calling this as one of the best smartphones in the market, competing with the Android and iOS smartphones out there, but we might be deciding very early as the Blackberry OS is as always quite limited and different, and cannot suit users of every category.

Pros: Great Design, Big & bright display, Descent Camera, On-screen keyboard is amazing
Cons: Plastic case looks cheap, Lack of apps as compared to Android & iOS,

The screen though is excellent, with the Blackberry Z10 having a 1280 x 768 pixel 4.2-inch display, with the pixel density of 356 PPI. The new OS version would surely help someone get a better interface and usability, but there’s a lot included internally too – Dual-core processor backed by the 2GB of RAM that would now support a lot of multitasking.

Having an internal memory of 16 GB, the storage isn’t limited to it as Z10 has got an option of expandable storage with a MicroSD card, to a maximum of 32GB. There are two cameras included in Blackberry Z10, with the rear camera having an 8-megapixel lens, with the LED flash and having Autofocus, while the additional features include 5x optical zoom and 1080p Full-HD video capturing, while the front 2-megapixel camera has got a 3x optical zoom and is capable of recording HD videos at 720p quality.

The battery is what Blackberry smartphones are majorly known for, but within the Z10 we are going to see a battery with the capacity of 1800 mAh, while the battery is still removable by taking out the back cover and one cannot be sure how long it would last on a full charge when you are watching videos or multitasking.

Connectivity wise, the Blackberry Z10 has got the 4G LTE or the HSPA+ connectivity, thus targeting the US and UK markets, while the others include Dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and the Bluetooth 4.0 technology, while there is NFC, GPS and the phone can work as a mobile hotspot to share the data network.
