2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 15+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Solid build, good hand feel
  • Nice on-screen keyboard
  • Display tends to attract too many smudges and fingerprints

Display

  • Good display with high pixel density, good viewing angles, and good sunlight legibility

Software

  • Initial learning curve with the BB10 OS (especially to understand the different gestures)
  • Limited 3rd party app eco-system (compared to Android or iOS) - and even the apps present are often not as full-featured as their Android/iOS counterparts

Performance

  • Smooth, fluid performance

Camera

  • Decent camera

Audio

  • Good call quality
  • Average loudspeaker

Battery

  • Average battery life

More

  • BB10 is visually refined, and touch friendly
  • Excellent web browser
  • Good audio/video playback
  • Ordinary maps application compared to that of Google, or even Apple
  • Limited voice control service (not as 'smart' as Android's voice control, or Apple's Siri)
