The sleek and new design of this device is something what you are looking for. We can say that the phone takes cues from its past gadgets, but still it is modern. In this phone, you will find a PVD-coated metal border, which is framing your phone to enhance its looks. Back of this device is built from carbon/glass composite which is very light to carry.

The best thing about this device is that it is lighter, smaller and attractive than the Z10 so you can easily carry this device in your palm. Many of you think that the entire look of this device is similar with its old Bold device, but not fully, there are many changes that you can feel after carrying one in your hands. Overall, the device is giving an attractive look, so Blackberry fans get ready to get one!

Crystal-clear Display

The display of this device is exceptional that is giving a crystal clear look. The display of Q10 is quite great as it has 3.1-inches, it’s the smallest screen of any flagship-priced device, but it is quite larger than any other QWERTY smart-phone. The best part of display is it is a SuperAMOLED display.

Moreover, the display of this device is impressive as it shows pictures, videos drastically with vivid and bright colors. Spill and crack protect makes the display of this device unique from other smart-phones.

Marvelous  Camera

As expected, the camera is one of the most important features of a smartphone after all, everyone loves to capture some attractive and beautiful pictures of their friends, family members or places every once in a while. Well, the Blackberry Q10 is sporting an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and 2 megapixel front-facing camera with new HDR mode, auto-focus, geo-tagging, face detection, image stabilization and many other features.

Many of you do have information about HDR which stands for High Dynamic Range. By using this feature, you can easily take multiple picture by lacing them together. However, the front camera of the device is great as well and it’s perfect for Skype video calling, BBM video calling and more.

Physical keyboard

Finally, the attractive point of this device ‘physical keyboard’ which is quite similar with BlackBerry Bold 9900, but the new keyboard comes with some dynamic changes. All the keypads are bigger than before, so you will not get any problem while typing. One of the best things about the physical keyboard of this device is that it is straight rather than curved layout that you already experienced in Bold 9900/9930.

I am extremely happy with seeing the physical keyboard because it offers an amazing typing experience. However, between all the keys, you will find metal frets that separate each row of keys and provide a bit of contrast to the experience. You will also feel good by using its shortcuts that play a bigger role in the Q10 device. This feature enables you to carry out your tasks quickly and rapidly.

    • Hi... Essien

      Despite packing a full on QWERTY keyboard the BlackBerry Q10 is only a shade wider than the Z10, and noticeably shorter measuring up at 119.6 x 66.8 x 10.35mm. It's Not for painful...... It's comfortable for use. :P Don't Mind.

    • The textured rubberised rear of the Z10 is out and in comes a glass weave finish on the back of the Q10 which provides a decent amount of grip and a relatively solid, if not plastic feel.
