BlackBerry Z10 Compared to Samsung Galaxy S4

  • Galaxy S4: Eight-core Exynos 5 chipset clocked at 1.6 GHz supported by 2 GB of RAM. U.S. will have Qualcomm’s quad-core Sanpdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.9 GHz
  • BlackBerry Z10: Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz supported with 2 GB of RAM

  • BlackBerry Z10: Standby: 13 days; Talk time: 10 hours

Galaxy S4

  • Dual Camera: Takes photos and video with the front and rear cameras simultaneously. Supports video calls with both cameras.
  • Group Play: Share photos, documents, games between phones without Wi-Fi, cell connection

BlackBerry Z10

  • BlackBerry Balance. Create multiple profiles for personal, work, other needs.
  • BlackBerry Hub. Quick swipe left of screen to access email, other functions while using any app.

Samsung has also announced an integration of the SwiftKey keyboard technology in their stock virtual keyboard for their iteration of Android. This is something BlackBerry has also done to with BlackBerry 10.

While the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be this year’s flagship device for the company, the Z10 apparently isn’t for BlackBerry. There are many tell-tale signs there will be a better all-touch device (codenamed: Aristo), which is rumored to hit Sprint in the second half of the year.
