Blackberry’s latest device to enter the market is the Z10, a touchscreen smartphone running the brand new Blackberry 10 operating system. The company has been going to through a lean patch over the past few years as it didn’t innovate much to compete with Android and Apple smartphones. However, it seems to have come up with a suitable challenger in the form of the Blackberry Z10. Let’s see how this handset fares in terms of specifications.
Networks and Connectivity:
Blackberry Z10 can be used on any quad-band GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 2G networks, quad-band HSDPA 850 / 900 / 2100 3G networks or the new quad-band LTE 800 / 900 / 1800 / 2600 4G networks. Users can connect to the internet through any of these networks using GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA, HSUPA or EV-DO Rev. A.
Blackberry Z10 has a 4.2 inches, 768 X 1280 pixels LCD capacitive touchscreen display. It offers excellent image quality and sharpness as it has a pixel density of 355 pixels per inch. It appears amazingly clear and crisp while watching HD videos or high resolution images.
The phone is equipped with an 8 megapixel camera with auto focus and software image stabilization. There is a LED flash as well which assist you in low-light conditions. The camera supports high definition video recording of 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second. As far as still images are concerned, users can take snaps of up to a resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels.
Blackberry Z10 arrives with a Qualcomm Snadragon chipset that has a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU for handling the main operations, Adreno 225 for handling graphics and 2 GB of RAM. The phone also provides users with 16 GB internal storage for storing their files and other data. Furthermore, you can use a microSD card of up to 64 GB to get additional storage space
The Z10 is one of first two devices to feature the latest Blackberry 10 operating system which is far superior than any of the company’s software offerings. It has a gesture-based user interface which is quite different from normal Android and iOS interfaces. Some of the apps inbuilt into the phone’s memory include Blackberry Maps, Document editor, photo editor, HTML 5 web browser, BBM 6 and much more.
The smartphone runs on a Li-Ion 1800 mAh battery which provides enough backup time to keep the phone running for long periods of time. According to the company, a single charge will offer users with 10 hours of talk time and 312 hours of stand-by time.
