It is as new and as fresh as this generation. The Blackberry 10 generation Z series has it all to impress the lot and to get you back to that latest technology-loving group. It is the first phone to run on tenth generation Blackberry Operating System. It is an attractive device in black and white, and it is deliberately designed to display the elegance that BlackBerry posses. BlackBerry has completely overhauled its OS understanding; the new device has been optimised for gesture dependent control. Not only software, but also this time BlackBerry seems to have also worked upon the hardware to bring it at equivalence with today’s high-end smart-phones.

Blackberry Z-10 Features
The new Blackberry is full of wonderful features, one being the simultaneous software and hardware implementation. For instance, BlackBerry Z10 has something called BlackBerry Flow, which means that now it, is not required to seek information on the device. Rather, it is delivered to within thumb reach, and hence, the action can be taken swiftly and simply. Other features have been discussed in details below:
BB Z10 is BlackBerry’s makeover to the mobile OS. As mentioned earlier gestures play an imperative role in navigation and the fresh BlackBerry Hub is reachable from any application, with an effortless swipe. The onscreen keyboard learns your typing style and it has been completely re- designed. A feature BBM Video has been added but is something similar to what Apple did. The view from the camera can be shared along with documents, photos, etc. through the most recent Screen Share feature.
Z10 is powered by a CPU with dual core specifications clocking to 1.5GHz but the processor has not been officialised as of yet. The device has large 2GB of memory (RAM) along with 16GB internal storage (expandable all the way up to maximum 48GB by using the 32GB micro SD card). All the important and inescapable features like Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, and ambient light sensor are also added. It has been approved to make the phone available on Verizon and American Telephone & Telegraph equipped with LTE radios.
Camera and Display quality
It supports a 4.2-inch 1280 x 768 display and has two cameras, a back-facing 8 megapixel camera that is capable of 1080p video and front-facing 2 megapixel camera that can capture video of 720p. The rear side camera is capable of producing decent looking shots, but focusing can sometimes be an issue.
Call and Data Capabilities
As expected, call quality of Z10 is excellent. The sound is loud and clear without any disturbance which makes the calling experience very nice and smooth. The presence of both cellular and Wi-Fi antennas seemed to grip onto networks effortlessly and not let go easily.
Battery may give upto 10 hours of talk time on 3G and it may last for upto 305 hours on standby mode.

Blackberry Z10 Unboxing & Powerup video:
All in all the phone is a good option to go for with its amazing features that would attract all consumers. It is excellent to note that BlackBerry is still sticks to basics. Other than the battery issues the phone has brilliant applications. So go for it especially if you are a BlackBerry addict. But If Blackberry as a brand does not attract you then you can go for Nokia Lumia 910 with better battery backup and with advantage of Windows in it and that too at a reduced cost then BlackBerry Z-10.
