BlackBerry Z10 or iPhone 5S? Which one to get?
My contract is bound to expire and I have no clue about what phone to get.

I like the Blackberry because I've always had one and they are easy to work with and have everything at hand.
On the other hand, I've used an iPhone 4S for 1 year as my secondary phone and am very pleased to say that it is incredible with all the media I have stored and syncs perfectly with my laptop.

Which one should I get? Also, what about the Nokia Lumia 920?

Thanks in advance.




The 5S easily is the best to get. The Z10 of course uses a new user interface which is not the easiest to pick up & use as it is gesture based.

As far as the Lumia, running an OS that has next to nothing in terms of apps.

Any BlackBerry < any iPhone
I have a Z10 and always been a BlackBerry user. With the BlackBerry Z10 (Q10/5) you get what's called BlackBerry Balance which allows you to do business and play without having them interfere with eachother. If your phone was to ever be stolen or lost there's an app called BlackBerry Protect which allows you to track your phone and keep it secure and if hacked the phone would do a full security wipe without your permission, just be sure you have all apps backed up in BlackBerry Link(security is the top priority. Even Obama has a BlackBerry). The UI is smooth to the touch (BlackBerry Flow) and allows for easy software navigation. It's OS system, worked on by TAT (The Astonishing Tribe owned by BlackBerry), uses the QNX Neutrino microkernel RTOS (Unix-like OS) that enables the use of Flash and HTML5 capabilities and is prone to crashes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGW76JB90Ro)which uses the C/C++ computing programing language (QNX is used in systems where the cost of failure is very high"- QNX CEO Dan Dodge) and is also an OS compiler running Android 2.3 Gingerbread (Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on update) Dalvik APIS APK, Adobe Air/Flash, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS3) with JQuery and Java with QNX C/C++ Native and C++/Qt Cascades SDK. It allows the option of Internet thetering so you could use it as a modem. The features of the hardware are limited. When you look at it you will realize there's no home button. This phone allows for you to only use touch with multiple swiping gestures that takes time to get used to. This is the main feature that makes this standout among other phones such as the iPhone. Typing is much easier where with it you don't even have to use type. All you need to do is start with the first letter and the phone will do the rest on it's own (predictive text), just flick up the word of your choice.The camera has a timeshift feature that allows for you to choose the perfect shot and has a cool story maker app that allows you to make PowerPoint like videos combining videos and photos alike with background music added. Internet (4G LTE) is much faster than other phones. If you're not familiar with BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) well here's your chance. This is the main reason why teens buy or have BlackBerry's. This allows you to exchange your pin number to friends (those with BBM) and communicate with them but also has video chat (similar to FaceTime on iPhone but for BlackBerry) and screen sharing and BBM is also security encrypted. Unlike the iPhone the BlackBerry is also NFC compatible.The only thing this phones lacks is apps which it started with 70,000 and now has 120,000+ apps with more being added but allows for you to sideload Android apps.The phone can also be used as a gaming console.There are so many things this phone has that many others don't and is considered the best phone in the market. Don't get tricked into buying something that you might not like and end up being stuck with your choice. Do the research on the specs of each phone.

Explaining the Difference:

The difference between iPhone and BlackBerry

To operate an iPhone you have a home button to push. You push it to turn it on and to get in and out of apps as with the BlackBerry Z10 you have no home button which means you have to use your fingers. To operate it you swipe up, left and right and to get out of an app you simply swipe up from the bottom.

iOS 7 Copied Features from BB10 OS: swiping gestures, notifications center (complete copy of BlackBerry Hub), voice chat only option, multitasking (copied from BlackBerry PlayBook and Android WebOS), slide to unlock, and car integration (idea of the BlackBerry and QNX partnership).

... few developers who've fought to maintain a familiar look want to throw in a new learning curve that could potentially steer users toward a competitor. - Excerpt taken from USA today (http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2013/.../2459333/)

Fun Fact:

Out of 600,000 phones the DoD uses, 470,000 are BlackBerry's, 41000 are iPhone's and 87,00 are Androids so BlackBerry wins in best security. (watch this ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dY1ecfWT3GQ)
