The BlackBerry Z10 has a 4.2-inch screen, while the HTC One has got a much bigger 4.7-inch screen. The HTC One runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with a Sense 5.0 UI overlay. It gives a smoother experience of Google’s most popular Android version. HTC has spent quite some time reworking the Sense UI, because this one doesn’t lag or hang, even when running heavy apps.
We especially like the Blink Feed feature of the HTC One – which posts regular updates from social networks and news sites onto the home screen. It could get a little overwhelming, but it’s convenient because it becomes a one-stop destination to know about all the latest happening in your online world. But of course, it consumes considerable power, so if you’re looking for energy efficiency, you could keep it turned off. The only downside of the HTC One – it’s still Android and essentially it doesn’t look very different from the other Android smartphones.
On the other hand, the Z10 runs on BlackBerry 10 – a freshly redesigned OS which looks amazingly different. It’s new, it’s innovative, especially the number of gestures the phone lets you use to navigate about. It could take some time to get used to all the ways to get around, but once you do, it’s pure fun. The Z10 also have a very convenient keyboard, we especially love how you can flick words onto the screen.
Like Windows Phone, BlackBerry 10 also lets you pin apps to the home screen, so when it comes to multitasking, you’d love the Z10. You can even close the apps directly from the home screen. So if you’re looking for something Bhaidifferent, you can opt for the BlackBerry Z10.
