What's the best BlackBerry smartphone?

Tech Advisor Staff | April 19, 2013
PC Advisor reviews the 5 best BlackBerrys you can buy in the UK today.

 

1. BlackBerry Z10

Rating: Reviewed on: 21 March 13RRP: £579 inc. VAT

The design and build quality of the Z10 just makes it seem like a cheap plastic iPhone to us. Hardware is reasonable with the screen being the stand out feature and the BlackBerry 10 software makes this the most attractive BlackBerry smartphone to date. However, given the price, the iPhone or a decent Android handset is still a preferable option.

 

2. BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900

Rating: Reviewed on: 28 October 11RRP: £209 inc. VAT

The Bold series gets a much needed facelift in design and extra power under the hood.

 

3. BlackBerry Torch

Rating: Reviewed on: 12 December 11RRP: £250 inc. VAT

Overall, RIM may have done too little with the Torch. It offers the same core features as other BlackBerry 7 smartphones, but the single home screen looks bare when compared to the multiple-screen, widget-supporting offerings of competitors.

 

4. Blackberry Bold 9790

Rating: Reviewed on: 10 January 12RRP: £265 inc. VAT

The Bold 9790 is a business smartphone running Blackberry OS 7 featuring a touchscreen and a QWERTY keypad.

 

5. BlackBerry Curve 9320

Rating: Reviewed on: 28 May 12RRP: £104 inc. VAT

A cheap-and-cheerful BlackBerry smartphone, there's lot to like about the BlackBerry Curve 9320, although you do get what you pay for.
