We’ve taken BlackBerry’s new entry-level all-touch device, dubbed the Z3, to see how it performs rendering Android apps against the Z30 and Z10.

Many feared that perhaps the Z3 would be sluggish. However, this $189 BlackBerry performs surprisingly well. Once you’ve watched the video above you’ll see its power.

BlackBerry hasn’t given details on how they were able to make the Z3 comparable in speed with the likes of the quad-core GPU powered Z30.

However, the Z3 likely has a better GPU than the Z10 and due to it having less pixel density can render apps more quickly.
