BlackBerry Z10 is a little outdated phone launched many years ago, which features a medium 4.2" multi-touch screen, a good performance 1.5 gigahertz Dual-Core processing unit, and two cameras, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 2 MP front camera. Let's take a better look at what this phone can do.

Blackberry decided to equip this device with a great performance 1.5 gigahertz Dual-Core CPU, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 system chip with a big 2 GB RAM memory. Handling graphic rendering, it also counts with a 400 megahertz Adreno 225 graphics processing unit. A nice point of this phone is its quite big 16 GB internal storage memory and a slot for an external memory card, enough to install hundreds of applications without any problem.

Blackberry is offering this cellphone in black and white. It appears that Blackberry didn't care so much about the weight in this 4.85 ounces cellphone. This device is extremely slim and good-looking, being just 0.35" thick.

This cellphone is equipped with an awesome 4.2" display with a 1280 x 768 resolution, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels taking part of the display. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This cellphone features two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 2 mega-pixels front side camera. It is capable of capturing videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD). This camera also features a few useful features like flash, auto-focus and digital image stabilization.

This cellphone uses a medium capacity 1800 mAh replaceable battery that can keep the BlackBerry Z10 running for several hours, although you may find yourself looking for a place to charge it after some heavy use. This phone has a reported stand by time of 316 hours and a talk time of 10 hs.

This cellphone offers wi-fi connectivity (and it can be shared with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high speed data connection or the fastest 3G connection type, using HSPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The BlackBerry Z10 works with a Micro SIM card for GSM connection and it can connect to both CDMA and GSM networks.

The BlackBerry Z10 also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other phones and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

Blackberry sells this phone for only 125 dollars, which is a great offer for such a great phone. No matter if you need a work device, want this phone to play lots of games or are looking for a device to majorly use social networks, this phone is the right one .
