Share it Please
Wait for Blackberry 10 is finally over.The initial reviews of the BB10 are good but if Blackberry want to make this OS a success then it had to steal the market share of Android and iOS which is not easy.Samsung Galaxy S3 is the best Android phone till now and Apple's iPhone is the most advanced phone running on iOS.Whether Blackberry Z10 is good enough to compete with these two giants?Lets find out-
Display-Blackberry comes with a screen size of 4.2 inches which is palm friendly.Some people consider 4 inch to ideal and some want bigger 5 inch screen.Z10 is built to cater the needs of both.Z10 offers a screen resolution of 1280x768 with 355 ppi.
Apple iPhone5 comes with 4 inch capacitive touch screen with 1136x640 screen resolution and 326ppi pixel density.
Samsung's Galaxy S3 is having 1280x720 Super AMOLED display.Screen size is 4.8 inched  giving a pixel density of 306 ppi.
Winner-I would choose Galaxy S3 because of its bigger screen and Super AMOLED display.It is having less ppi than other two but Z10 is having LCD display and SuperAMOLED provides you best results instead of less ppi.
Processor-The heart of any smart-phone is its processor.Blackberry Z10 comes with powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz.The processor is good and Z10 will not lag for sure no matter how much gaming or multi-tasking you do.
iPhone 5 is running on A6 1.3 GHz dual-core processor.Since it is smaller than Z10 so   slightly less processing power won't matter.
Samsung Galaxy S3 is running on same Snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz processor.But don't forget it is bigger than Z10.So,Galaxy S3 will be slower than Blackberry Z10.
Winner-Tough fight between Blackberry Z10 and Apple's iPhone 5.Here,Z10 is proves to be a better buy.
RAM-Larger RAM allows you to install more apps without effecting the functioning of the device.For smoother experience,more RAM is better.Blackberry Z10 comes with 2GB RAM which is more than good to support this phone.
iPhone 5 disappoint here with 1GB RAM.Apple could  have done better rather than providing their latest flagship phone with just 1GB RAM.
Samsung Galaxy S3 is also having 1GB RAM,a downside for such a fantastic device.
Winner-Without any doubts,Blackberry's Z10 stands alone in this category with no competition what so ever. 
Storage-Z10 comes with 16 GB internal memory that can be expanded upto 64 GB with micro SD card.
iPhone 5 comes with 16,32 and 64 GB version but no slot  is provided to  insert a  microSD card.
Galaxy S3 comes with  16,32 and 64GB variants along with a slot to insert a SD  card upto 64 GB.
Winner-Galaxy S3 is winner in this category as you buy   a 64 GB version and insert a 64 GB microSD card to a total storage capacity of 128 GB.
Camera-BlackBerry Z10 comes with 8MP rear camera that is capable of shooting full HD 1080p videos.Front camera is   for video calling but it can also shoot 720p videos.
iPhone5 also comes with 8 MP rear and 1.3 MP  front camera that are capable to record videos at  1080p and 720p  resp.
Galaxy S3 is also having 8 MP rear and 2 MP  front camera that are capable to record videos at  1080p and 720p  resp.
Winner- Z10 and S3 ends in a tie in this category.
Battery-BlackBerry has put 1800 mAh Li-ion battery in Z10that will give a talk-time of 10 hrs which is pretty  good for the  device.
Apple's iPhone 5 comes with1440 Li-Po non removable battery that will give you 8 hrs talk-time.
Galaxy S3 is having 2100 mAh Li-ion battery that will last for 11 hrs.
Winner-Galaxy S3 is clear winner in battery life.
Apps-This is one area where BlackBerry has some work to do and they are doing this.BB10 is completely redesigned.So,it is having less apps than iOS and Android.BB10 has around 70,000 appd but it include all necessary apps and some popular games.
Apple's iOS have more than 1 million apps including approved and pending apps.Apple users have tons of options to choose from.
Google Play Store is having around 7,00,000 apps which is slightly less than iTunes but far more than BlackBerry World.
Winner-Apple's iPhone 5 is winner in app category.Number of apps may not matter for some users,who uses 700,000 or  million apps at a time.But still it is a  factor that can't be  ignored. 

Final Verdict-Z10 is good for those who are bored of their Android or iOS system and looking for a change.The UI is beautiful and Z10 is a phone worth trying.If you ignore the app factor,it is a superb phone.It is capable enough to compete with two giants and it might bring BB in limelight again.
