There is absolutely no arguing the fact that BlackBerry has lost its touch over the years.
The company has refused to admit the fact that the future of smartphones lies in handsome touchscreen and intuitive user interface.
Users started getting rid of their BlackBerrys for the Android and iPhone phones. In fact, people buying smartphones for the first time did not give BlackBerrys a shot. The once dominant smartphone market share of the company fumbled and the stock tanked.
Six years after the launch of the iPhone, BlackBerry has finally started to warm up in the smartphone competition with its latest smartphone, the Z10.
Unlike other BlackBerry smartphones, the Z10 does not come with any physical keyboard. It is a touchscreen-only model that customers have preferred a lot these days.
The Z10 happens to be thicker and taller than the iPhone 5. It comes with a 4.2 inch display. Videos and images seem superiorly sharp.
A striking thing about the Z10 is the new operating system, the BlackBerry 10. In spite of all the troubles that the BlackBerry is going through, the company has decided to make its own mobile operating platform for tablets and smartphones instead if using Microsoft’s Window or Google’s Android.
BB10 is much more than just a host of boring apps on the screen. BlackBerry has designed the operating system in a way that everything can be controlled with the help of gestures. Unlike the gestures used in Microsoft’s Windows 8, the controls of the BB10 are very smooth and natural.
With links of Twitter, Facebook, text messaging, etc. all available beneath the home screen and the BlackBerry Hub, you would not have to navigate much to stay connected.
The battery life seems to be decent too. You can use your phone moderately the whole day without any charging.
