That is a low bar. Its relatively small screen coupled with its dual-core processor should last at least a full day. Love that it has a keyboard. And even though the Q10 doesn't lead the pack in terms of other features, its near-perfect little keyboard may be enough to keep BlackBerry alive. The unit arrived promptly in the mail and I had to go through the process of switching over my account. If you're using the BlackBerry Q10 for the first time you'll be taken to the first page of applications on the handset, but as soon as you open one you'll notice the screen jumps to the active frame page before opening the app.
There's a reason touch-only devices account for nearly 100 percent of smartphone sales. It's a nice idea and if everything has been implemented properly some active frames work well - although we found that we hardly ever slid down to view the four hidden panes, choosing to go sideways into the app list if we didn't want one of the four on show. The BlackBerry Q10 at right sacrifices the screen real estate of the Z10 at left for a physical keyboard. Master the hub concept, and you will love it. The internet browser is very fast and works very well.
To make a good camera you need a big lens! The screen often did not respond to my taps to select text, position the cursor in text, or activate a text field so that I could enter or paste text. T-Mobile has only added one app, an account manager which is a badly laid-out port from Android. When is Olympus or Cannon going to make a camera which is also a cell phone. Blackberry is on the right track with this, but they need to eliminate the clunky interface and produce a top of the market camera before they can really compete with the other phones on the market. It plays it with ease.
I was super excited about returning to a BlackBerry. However, colour reproduction was a little haywire and the phone produced oversaturated images at times. The buttons are more rounded and it feels more precise. All in all, this is a great phone. Great sound too, both on calls and on vids. Also, Maps continue to be a big problem area as there's hardly any maps data for New Delhi in the Maps app. Anyway, this phone is superb.
I can have 4 apps open usually Twitter, internet, Alien Flow, and weather and experience no reduction in performance. I purchased this phone to replace almost the same model that had taken a beating after 3 years. All these active panes or frames are displayed in a screen panel between the Hub and the app icon lists. Peek into your BlackBerry Hub message center without leaving your current application, and you can multitask seamlessly too. The multitasking is great on this phone, switching between apps is seamless and has no lag whatsoever. Even if you're a diehard keyboard purist, you should rethink limiting yourself to the physical keyboard.
The lack of symmetry kind of irritates me. The main lockscreen on the Q10 gives you a variety of information including the standard time and date display as well as your upcoming calendar entries and new message counters - which include everything from emails and texts to tweets and Facebook notifications. The enterprise-grade encryption and security features? View full gallery Verizon is home to the exclusive white version of the BlackBerry Z10. Instead, you'll operate the Z10 through gestures more on those later. Use the 2 megapixel front camera and the new video chat feature inside the BlackBerry messenger app to stay connected with friends around the world. Could have done the same thing for less with just an old fashioned flip phone.
BlackBerry Balance provides you with two separate areas of the phone - one for business and can be controlled by your company and one for personal use where you'll have free rein over the apps and content. Inside apps, a top to bottom swipe will open up options menu. The phone looks a lot like the Bold 9900, BlackBerry's last flagship hardware keyboard phone. Each row of keys has a thin metal strip under it. The phone is extremely responsive and we did not experience any lags while opening apps, navigating the menu, browsing the web on the phone's native web browser and even playing games such as Angry Birds Star Wars, Beach Buggy Blitz and The Odyssey. I struggle to type on the larger phones to reach keys quickly with my thumbs.
The Q10 can operate multiple applications at once. Blackberry customer support is also really wonderful. As on the BlackBerry Bold, the surfaces of the Q10's buttons are sculpted with ridges and concave depressions. BlackBerry has implemented a pull down quick settings bar, accessed by dragging your finger down from the top of the screen, which apes similar implementation found on some Android handsets. But i dont think its easy to use for everybody,qwerty phone is not easy to use when you are a beginner for this kind of phone.
I can read the screen. The native web browser comes with Adobe Flash and renders web pages swiftly. This phone is light weight and your able to text on one hand. Its seams are as narrow as possible, and its details are finely machined. Exit the app - by sliding up from the base of the screen - and you'll be turfed to the active frame panel, displaying your four most recently used app. For BlackBerry owners this is a welcome upgrade, but the BlackBerry Q10 is a step down for iPhone and Android users, even with the included physical keyboard.
