2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 10 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Smart looks
  • Great hand feel
  • Excellent QWERTY keyboard

Display

  • Good Super AMOLED display with high contrast levels, and wide viewing angles
  • The small screen, relative to full touch phones, makes it not so good for web and multimedia experiences
  • Video playback and gaming are especially inconvenient, because of the 1:1 screen ratio

Software

  • Snappy, fluid BB10 OS
  • Navigation gestures in the new BB 10 OS can be somewhat unintuitive, and some gestures are even more dodgy on the small screen of the Q10
  • The BlackBerry app ecosystem is way behind Android, and iOS

Camera

  • Average camera

Audio

  • Good call quality
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Average bundled earphones

Battery

  • Good battery life
