Long ago I Got the BlackBerry Q10 , and I kept using it and testing and playing with with all that I can in less than a 3 month of testing in all kinds in terms of battery life, Gaming, Social Media uses, Email aspects, Drop tests, Emulator, App Store, Boot times, how fast updates are, Typing Speeds..etc. And so below you will find a Short version of my review for the BlackBerry Q10.
When I First held the phone and looked at it and it made me feel that this phone is a premium phone built really sturdy but not in all aspects and it looks elegant and classy but also stayed with the style of this era. When I mentioned that the BlackBerry Q10 was not built in sturdy in all Aspects I ment that the Keyboard was not at it’s best they Could have done it better especially on the Space Button, and also I had an issue with the battery door where it fell when i took it out of my pocket or when i sided my finger on it gently, but I was given a Back cover replacement and it was like having a new phone, The BlackBerry Keyboard at the first Day I was a bit Slow on typing on a Physical Keyboard but after a Day of typing I got my speed back I was typing faster than a touch screen and typing faster than using the swype feature on android, and yes now I can type with out looking at the screen that’s a huge bonus, and in terms of Rear Camera it’s a good Camera but not the best, but its good enough and better than most of camera I used on Android devices, and it major apps.
Now For the Software Part ” Operating System “, I can’t go ahead and bash on the this OS BB 10 due to the fact this Operating system is still new it was not out for years like Android and iOS, But in it was still had a few glitches from time to time and there was some fps ” Frame per Second ” drops when browsing between pages and opening a few programs and switch between them, and in terms of gaming the phone is Good for Gaming as long as we get them I didn’t have any problem with any game expect for GBA ” Game Boy Advance ” Emulator it was a bit glitchy, and in terms of Social Media Apps the Official ones they were bad compared to the ones on Android on iOS but like I said it’s a new OS so we have to give it some time, but BlackBerry Shined for me for in terms of the BlackBerry Hub and the amazing 1.5 to 2 Days of Battery life on a single charge , yes it destroyed android and iOS in those terms and I am not that much of a Heavy User but I do a-lot of Email Messaging I send about 10 to 30 Email’s a Day and read/delete around 30 to 50 emails a Day and use WhatsApp most of the time for chatting sending over 50 to 100 messages and the BlackBerry Q10 Speakers are outstanding compared to iPhones and Android devices The BlackBerry Q10 Speakers are out standing.
Overall The Phone is Great and it’s Fast and sleek and feels premium, got a good camera, great battery life, good amount of apps to satisfy some of the people needs can’t say all of them due to the fact that most people get android and iOS device due to Great App Support, Nice Keyboard, Big Screen for a phone with Physical Keyboard it’s nearly the same size as iPhone its not to big and its not to small, in the end what makes this phone not poupler to people because of 2 reasons and those 2 are, No Apps, A Really High Price 180 to 210KD thats about 630 USD to 735 USD, with in that range people expect to get the best and with in that price range you can get a high end phone that gives much more but with no keyboard and low battery life, in the end its up to you to find the price is good for this phone or not but if your looking a Q10 wait for a price drop for it because a price drop will happen soon enough just like how the Z10 dropped in its price .
