A Review: The New BlackBerry Z10

The New BlackBerry Z10

It is quite exciting to know that while many are going gaga over the rising market competition between Android and IOS smartphone devices, BlackBerry has aimed not be left behind as they introduced The New BlackBerry Z10 in March earlier this year. I was privileged enough to test the unit for a couple of weeks, then create a review thereafter. I was extra thrilled because I knew that BB Z10 leads the  new generation of BlackBerry devices.

As BlackBerry’s first full touchscreen smartphone, it was indeed interesting to experience the new features the BBZ10 has to offer.  Unlike the traditional BlackBerry phones, it has no keys or buttons that you can use for navigation. It is stylishly slim that has straight edges and rounded corners. (It even sometimes reminds people of the Iphone 5!)

The screen size may not be that big but it’s big enough to surf the internet, download/use apps and watch videos.

It has also a great amount of resolution of 768×1280 giving images and videos crisp and clear appearance. For those who love taking and sharing photos to your networks, you sure will love the time of your life looking at the vibrant colours.

One BBZ10 feature that is definitely NOT TO BE MISSED is its Camera with the Time Shift Mode as it lets you create a wonderful snapshot all the time. It allows you to choose and adjust elements to produce the photo you want. Time Shift mode records the details before and after your photo. For instance, you can adjust the dial to open one friend’s mouth to smile and then forward to open your other friend’s eye , then combining it all to have the desired perfect picture.

The next notable feature is the BBM Video. You may now initiate a video chat with your BBM contacts using 3g/4g connection or WiFi. Moreover,  the you may now have the BBM Video screen sharing function. When you’re in a BBM Video conversation, you can just tap an icon to share your screen with your friend. And while the audio is running, you can explore around your phone to show them a photo or a video or anything else, allowing them to have a peek of your phone screen as you do this.

Another feature worth mentioning is the Auto contextual auto-correction and next-word prediction. It ‘magically’ remembers the words you frequently use, making you type and use the keys faster and easier as it predicts the ones you are going to type early on.
The two weeks of using this phone was really fun, and I could not help but be amazed of  its interesting features. Thumbs up for BBZ10!!!

    I love Z10 but as what I said in your other posts ate, mas prefer ko pa rin ang Q10. The best feature of Z10 is its BlackBerry Hub. All in one place!
