"Easily outshines any QWERTY phone I've seen in years."5.0 starson by Dylan514
Pros: The Hub, probably the most noticeable improvement when compared to the previous 12 models I've used. The battery life is the best I've ever seen on a smartphone, security is still sound and of course the KEYBOARD! is fantastic, best ever bar none
Cons: The screen and cameras are nothing spectacular when comparing to the iPhone, Android, Windows, or other touchscreen products. The trackpad is gone and this will certainly annoy a few users who loved scrolling off screen.
Summary: The sacrifice of screen size is easily remedied with the functionality you will not find on Android, iOS and Windows Mobile. Blackberry was after all the first to provide real multi-task capabilities, long before its competitors. If email is your primary use for your smartphone than this is the phone for you. Blackberry of course has not reduced it's high levels of security, and has tacked on a battery with the best I've seen from them in terms of talk time and overall life.
After 3 different Blackberry 7 models I can safely call this a fresh start for the company and most importantly the best smartphone for a professional who emails a lot on the market. The keyboard will likely invigorate long-term users in ways the Z10 never could.
