BPF Verdict: The Blackberry Z10 wins!

The Blackberry Z10 and the Blackberry Q10 share many of the same specifications – the 16GB of storage, the 2GB of RAM, the 8MP camera and the Snapdragon S4 Plus processor. The Z10 easily has the best screen and, when the rest of the measurements are confirmed, it will undoubtedly be the sexiest of the two phones. It’s certainly thinner.

But we shouldn’t discount the QWERTY keyboard on the Q10, which will be a big draw for Blackberry owners who have long preferred typing onto physical, responsive keys rather than a flat, occasionally imprecise touch screen. The Z10 might come out on top in this particular comparison, but in the long run we doubt the situation is so clear cut.
