Blackberry q10

by

Blackberry q10The Blackberry Q10 was released back in April 2013 and is a great choice to make if you’re searching for a very capable smartphone, especially if you’re a QWERTY keyboard aficionado, and I mean the physical ones. The “lethal” combination between its capacitive touch screen and a physical keyboard is the ultimate recipe for a brilliant ultra-fast texting tool.
I must say that I love phones with QWERTY keyboards, as they’re extremely useful when you do a lot of typing on a daily basis and the Q10 does not only offer the advantage of typing very fast, but it also has an impressive set of specifications for providing you with a great user experience. These being said, I hope you’ll understand my enthusiasm when describing it. Follow the next review and see exactly what it brings.
First of all, let’s take a look of what’s in its box. The Q10 comes along with an AC adapter, a microUSB cable for charging and making data transfers and a pair of headphones with in-ear buds.
The BlackBerry Q10 measures 119.6 x 66.8 x 10.4 mm and weighs 139 grams, having a reasonable weight for a smartphone that packs a 3.1 inches capacitive touchscreen and also accommodates a QWERTY keyboard below it. Handling it is very easy, as it sits comfortable in your hands due to its curved shape and rubbery finish on the back which offers a better grip, being fingerprint resistant too. The body is nicely built and feels pretty solid and reliable.

The image quality brings pleasure to your eyes due to the vibrant colors, deep blacks and very wide viewing angles. The phone is perfectly usable under direct sunlight, so you won’t be having any problems when outside.
Below the screen stands the real star of the show – the great QWERTY keyboard. You’re not being provided with the classic track-pad and navigation keys, but you won’t feel their absence at all thanks to the great job made by the nice display along with its keyboard friend.
On the inside, the BlackBerry Q10 comes packed with the BlackBerry 10.1 OS, which is friendlier than ever and comes with a black user interface for lowering the power consumption. Browsing through the intuitive user interface will go nice and smooth due to its powerful hardware, which comes in two flavors. For the non-LTE version, you’ll rely on a TI OMAP 4470 chipset, holding a dualcore 1.5 GHz Cortex A9 processor, PowerVR SGX544 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. The LTE version comes with a Snapdragon 800 chipset, having a dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor and Adreno 225 GPU. The storage can be expanded with a microSD card. Having these specs allows the Q10 to be a powerful performer and will never bother you with any issues whatsoever.
Snapping photos with the Q10 is done with an 8 MP camera with autofocus that captures photos with a maximum resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels and is provided with a LED flash for assisting in low light situations. The camera application reveals support for geo tagging, image stabilization, face detection, several shooting modes, touch focus and more. The image quality is great, with a nice amount of resolved detail, pleasing colors and good contrast.
For capturing videos, the Q10 is capable of shooting 1080p clips at 30 fps and does a great job.
A front facing 2 MP camera is also present.

For watching movies, you also have a very capable player that handles very well popular formats such as DivX, XviD, MP4, WMV, H.263 or H.264.
Let’s check what’s in the connectivity pocket. We’ll find here support for quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, HSPA and LTE and some models have CDMA support. Also here: dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, microUSB 2.0 and NFC.
Surfing the web is done with a WebKit browser that offers full support for Flash. The 3.1 screen isn’t a burden for browsing and you’ll get used to it even if coming from a larger screen. The pages are loaded very fast and you’ll be having a nice browsing experience.
The BlackBerry Q10 comes with built-in GPS receiver, a document viewer and editor, has integration for Dropbox and Box.NET, a weather application and others.
In conclusion, the BlackBerry Q10 is a wonderful tool to have if typing is important to you, as you’ll surely love that magnificent keyboard and the smartphone’s long list of skills.
