This was the question on everybody’s minds ever since BlackBerry launched its flagship smartphone running on the new and improved BlackBerry 10 OS. Even though the company had managed to put a lot of thought into coming up with a formidable competitor to the likes of the iPhone and Android based smartphones, we knew that when Samsung brought out its new flagship phone, it could make life a lot harder for BlackBerry all over again. But now that the Galaxy S4 is finally here, what does it mean for the BlackBerry Z10?
Samsung Galaxy S4: If you’re looking for something that’s big on size and performance, and you are an Android fan, then we can only imagine just how much you’d love the Galaxy S4. With its gorgeous 5-inch full HD screen, Samsung’s Exynos 5 processor and 2 GB of RAM, it’s definitely going to be your perfect multitasking assistant. But if it’s the aesthetics you crave for, you might be disappointed with the first look – its all-plastic body doesn’t really say eye-catching, and of course, its brilliance will blow you away only once you switch on the screen. Add to that the 13 MP rear camera and the 2 MP front-facing camera with a host of camera features, and you’ll probably not even miss your digital camera on your next road trip. To make it even more user-friendly, Samsung’s put in advanced features like floating touch and eye tracking in this phone. And yes, there’s S Voice too!
BlackBerry Z10: To start with, if you’re going solely on looks, you’ll probably be tempted to pick up the BlackBerry Z10 over the Samsung Galaxy S4. Extremely thin and sharp looking, the phone almost has no bezel and yes, its all black body also spells sexy. But dig a little deeper and that’s all you get. Like we said, the BlackBerry 10 experience is much better than the previous versions of this OS – letting you use the phone for your work and personal requirements conveniently. But then, the Z10 is powered by only a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM. Even its 4.2-inch screen with 720p resolution seems so much weaker in comparison with that of the Galaxy S4. In terms of camera too, this one fares much lower with its 8 MP rear camera and 2 MP front-facing one.
