Measuring in at 130mm x 65.6mm x 9mm it might be a little bit chunky, but feels much more comfortable than the BlackBerry Q10. It feels like a phone that was made for a marathon of suit trousers, coffee spills and desk-level drops.
Exclusive to BBM, Screen Share allows you do exactly as the name says. One press of a button, you can instantly share your display with another person that you’re having a video call with whether it’s an article you’re reading or a video you’re watching. The feeling of “look at this!” can now be instantly achieved thanks to Screen Share.
Every new release of a smartphone, it gets a step faster, better and smoother which requires more processing power and memory. The BlackBerry Z10 carries a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM (something of a minimum standard for the modern day and age of smartphones). Of course the Z10 is also 4G ready with NFC come as standard for BBM contacts and sending images.
You can now also watch the latest TV shows and HD films from BB World on your HD TV via its Micro HDMI connection.
BlackBerry fans will be glad to know the keyboard has a mind of its own (in a very good way), from the moment you start typing away for the very first time, it will remember certain common phrases you use, and predict them the next time you write. So if you ever asked your friend to text for you, they might find it rather strange with its predictions.
Massively improved camera, claimed BlackBerry, with 8MP on the back and 2MP for the front camera. Time Shift is another clever feature where you can go back or forward a few seconds from one single shot to get the best picture.
