ET Review: BlackBerry Q10

The Q10 is similar to the Bold 9900 in shape & size, but has a larger 3.1-inch super amoled touchscreen and improved keypad. The four-row keypad now has larger keys, a wider layout and feels more comfortable to type on. The display is fantastic but the 1:1 (square) aspect ratio sometimes ruins the video experience. Since most videos are 16:9, they run in a smaller frame on the phone. Performance is great — games and HD videos ran without any hitch even with multiple email and social networking accounts running in the background. It also shares the rear 8MP and front 2MP camera with the Z10. Like the Z10, the performance from the camera is fantastic — you get rich colours, sharp details and minimal noise. 

The Q10 has a 2,100mAh battery that easily lasted us over a day and half — impressive for a BlackBerry device. For those who love physical QWERTY keypads, the Q10 is the ultimate device. 

However at Rs 44,990 (850 USD), it's also insanely expensive. Because of the price, the Q10 has very stiff competition: the HTC One, Samsung's Galaxy S4 and the Apple iPhone 5.

3.1-inch super amoled (720 x 720 pixels) display, 1.5Ghz dual-core, 2GB RAM, 16GB + microSD, 8MP/2MP camera, BlackBerry 10, 2,100mAh, 139g 

Fantastic keyboard, stunning display, camera and audio performance, battery life 

Expensive, 1:1 aspect ratio not ideal for watching videos, not all apps compatible.

  1. At first i kept my hopes considering that if BB askin 44k fr this cellphone..there must be smthing special in it..well I went to a BB10 Promotional outlet in Gurgaon n got my hands on it...i actually wasted my precious time!! This phone is highly Overpriced..i didn't notice anything special in its new BB10 OS.. not even the phone looks..BB 9900 was even better in looks than this new q10...abt the specifications..u can gt same features with a bigger high quality screen like in xolo or micromax...!! so better save ur money guys...

    The best price for this phone shud be arnd 15-20k..n that too just fr the heck of brand name.."Blackberry"
