BlackBerry Z10 vs. iPhone 5 vs. Galaxy S3: The Battle Of Specs

BlackBerry Z10 vs. iPhone 5 vs. Galaxy S3: The Battle Of Specs

Finally, BlackBerry has unveiled the company’s first BB 10 smartphones, the BlackBerry Q10 and BlackBerry Z10. But the question on the mind of many is; can BlackBerry (previously Research In Motion) come back to the game? Can the company compete with other flagship phones like Apple’s iPhone 5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S3? If we look at the specs, the answer seems to be positive, as the new BB10 phones are loaded with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, 1280 x 768 pixel screen, which comes with a higher PPI than that of the iPhone 5. While the tech specs look good on paper, what the end users care about is the battery life, OS, and apps.

iOS and Android already cover a huge part of the smartphone market, and if BlackBerry wants their share, they’ll need to do something to increase their app offerings. Apple’s App Store has almost 800,000 apps and Google’s Play Store has around 700,000 Android apps, which is nowhere near BlackBerry’s current offering, 70,000 apps. Yes, you’ve read it right, the figure is just 70,000.

From design perspective, the phones look quite similar. All the three smartphones feature a rounded slab design, with no physical keyboard. The Galaxy S3 is larger in size, while the iPhone 5 is smaller and the BlackBerry stands in somewhere in-between.
