Voice Control aside, the Z10 is an extremely capable smartphone. It has some great features, an awesome camera and works well. In our review of the BlackBerry Z10, we said:
The BlackBerry World does have a solid selection of music and videos, though and there will be carrier billing for simple purchasing. Long-time BlackBerry fans will be happy to know that you can finally download and install apps on the BlackBerry Z10 without having to restart it. Yes, there are many existing BlackBerry users who have to restart their phones after installing a new app. Yeesh.
The BlackBerry 10 platform is a clean break from the past but it still faces the challenges you'd expect from a new OS: it lacks polish and app support is not close to what you can find on the competition. BlackBerry 10 does some things very well but I'm not sure if that's enough to overcome it's shortcomings."
