Apple iPhone 5 vs Blackberry Z10


It’s quite been a while that blackberry seems to be lagging in features, design and much more but with the BB10 platform and Z10 introduced Blackberry seems back to be in action. It is too early to comment because there’s still some time for Z10 to hit the US markets but don’t forget that 5 years back it was Blackberry which ruled over Apple and today Blackberry stands nowhere in front of Apple. Whether Blackberry’s time back with Z10 can be answered only after few months. However, let’s have a comparison between iPhone 5 and Blackberry Z10 for a better idea.

Let’s see what soothes your eye among the two high end phones. Well, Z10 has 4.2 inch 768 x 1280 LCD display with 356 ppi while iPhone 5 has 4 inch 640 x 1136 IPS-LCD based Retina Display with 326 ppi as pixel density. The numbers indicate Z10’s display to be of much higher quality but I have no clue why doesn’t that apply in reality. The viewing angles are taken care of with iPhone 5 and not with Z10.

To look at they are kind of exact replica of each other. But that’s just to look at, when it comes to the quality, body and feel iPhone 5 rules far time over Z10. Plastic body of Z10 doesn’t attract anymore however the LED light for notification seems to be better positioned over iPhone 5. Z10 does have a better front camera than iPhone 5 as Z10 goes with 2MP and iPhone 5 with 1.2 MP but then both of them offer 720p video shooting. Coming to the ports, we are again glad that Z10 has microHDMI port, an easy access for video-out. While the rest goes common like microphone, speaker and 3.5mm headset jack. Both the phones come with 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording and Z10 has f2.2 lens while iPhone 5 has f2.4 lens.  What’s more cooler with Z10 that we can remove the back cover and have a hold on the battery which is somehow not common with these high end phones.




The BB10 platform is undoubtedly way better for multi tasking, notifications while iPhone goes way better for its voice controlled Siri. Z10 has a 1.5GHz processor with 2GB of RAM while iPhone 5 has 1.3GHz processor with 1GB of Ram. However, both of them handle tasks with ease and I am glad that Blackberry’s Z10 will no longer freeze like the case with other Blackberries. Both the phones come with 4G but NFC is what comes only with Z10.  Coming to capacity, iPhone 5 is packed in 16GB,32GB and 65GB but the it increments by $100 each time while Z10 goes smarter with 16GB of internal storage and microSD slot. Email access and speed is great with both and so is the browser user friendly. When it comes to the camera quality, try taking snaps from both the phones, you will find iPhone to have that edge for more clearer and vivid pictures though both of them come with 8MP camera. Even when talk about battery, iPhone 5 gives us a battery lasting for a day while Z10 provides for 10hrs with normal usage.

Overall Verdict:

So all in all, Blackberry has made efforts and let the BB10 platform be far good but then design and battery part iPhone is uncomparable. Also coming to the cost, Z10 seems to be costing more as of now because it’s launched like now and iPhone 5 is 6months old in the market. Z10 still needs to be tried and tested while iPhone5 is already been in hands of many. If you wish to stay on the more trusted device stick to iPhone 5 and if you wish to try out new, then Z10 shouldn’t discourage you. And don’t forget BBM comes exclusively for Blackberry only.
