The smartphone many BlackBerry and QWERTY fans have been waiting for - the Q10 - finally lands on our desk. Will it please the traditionalists?
PROS
Premium build and design; eye-popping colours and excellent viewing angles from the Super AMOLED display; fast and fluid operation thanks to 2 GB RAM and quick processor; runs the latest version of BlackBerry OS - namely 10.1; excellent touch and type user experience; and expandable storage.
CONS
Expensive; and the screen is too small to enjoy videos or comfortably browse web pages.
VERDICT
If you simply need a physical QWERTY keyboard, the BlackBerry Q10 is the best smartphone choice you can make. Those who can’t afford it can pick up a Q5 for a lot less.
