2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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
  • 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
  • Average camera
  • Average bundled earphones
  • Average display
  • The Windows app store continues to a downside for the platform, with relatively limited app selection available when compared to Android or iOS
  • Under-powered processor can result in a sluggish interface at times
