Platform

As you can see from the chart above, the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 are almost identical when it comes to specs. wever, I found the Q10 offered a better quality screen that also provided more impressive viewing angles. This is due to the Z10’s lesser quality LCD Disply that only pumps out a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels, while the Q10’s S-AMOLED 720p screen flourishes above.

 In the end, I came to the conclusion that the handset that appeals to the larger majority of smartphone customers is the Z10. This device represents what people are accustomed to in the year 2013, while the Q10 appeals to a shrinking customer base that prefers a physical keypad over a virtual one.

Re: BlackBerry Z10 vs BlackBerry Q10: Which phone is the best choice?

I own both of them and I love them both. I've been using touchscreen phones for years and thought I would love the "flick" typing of the Z10. Yes, I think it's impressive and innovative, but I found that if my fingers are either too moist or too dry, the flicking becomes a problem and actually slows me down. For that reason, I put the Q ahead of the Z but I know quality when I see it and both phones are quality phones.

The Q10 works for me. I have no desire for the Z10.

I think BB have migrated the Z10 software to the Q10, stuck a Keyboard on and hoped for the best!

 

I am slowly improving on the Q10, but only at 60% happy; if you have a 9900 don't change; it's still the best combination BB.

Re: BlackBerry Z10 vs BlackBerry Q10: Which phone is the best choice?

Q10 vs. Z10 is a highly personal choice. As you pointed out in the specs the basic internals are identical. It comes down to full touch screen vs. physical keyboard. For a traditionalist like me it's the Q10 FTW. But then I cut my teeth on BlackBerrys all the way back to the 7230 model. BlackBerry's outstanding physical keyboard is ingrained in my DNA by now. I've also used Android phones and an iPhone so I'm no stranger to the full touch screen, and I even got used to the on-screen keyboards with that form factor. But the Q10 for me has just enough of a screen that I don't miss the full size screen too much, and it's more than compensated for by the keyboard I love so much. 

 

The best choice is to have them both! But if you must pick one, best to go to a store and try them both out for as long as the sales reps will tolerate you.
