What do I think about Blackberry Z10?
In comparing with Galaxy Note 2 and iPhone 5 I still think the Z10 needs more work to be done on its device. The Z10 looks so much alike as the iPhone 5 and people may mistaken it as a next gen iPhone. The casing is very sleek it feels very comfortable in your hand, there’s no problem reaching one end to another. Another thing I like is the back case it does not leave any finger prints although it attracts dust and dirt. You need time to clean the back casing however getting a case cover would do the trick. On the front and back case has a BlackBerry logo. Let’s get on with it!

Very easy to snap a photo without any problem. I have taken a few snaps and all shots are the same, most are not as clear as I thought to be.

BlackBerry World
It’s good to see BBW is doing well, still need improvement. BBW need to split up the paid and free apps. One thing I noticed you can share the app via BBM, Facebook, Twitter etc. Hopefully to see more apps in the upcoming months.

Homescreen
The screen consists 4 columns and 4 rows with a total of 16 apps. You can add folders by selecting an app and overlap with another.

Lockscreen
Very neat way to unlock Z10 there is no button on the front, just swipe up from the bottom to unlock.

Touchscreen Sensitivity
Very smooth indeed. So far I have not experienced any lag or slow response in touch sensitivity.

Notification (Top Bar)
Good to see toggles within the notification bar I love the fact they have the Settings app there.

Notification (Side Bar)
Swipe from the left until you see all the notifications from BBM, Text Messages, Facebook, Twitter, Calls. Very handy feature for mobile users.

Settings
A nicely layout of each setting, more user friendly than the Android version.

The new iPhone from Apple, what do you think of it?

iPhone 5 with a new design and higher specs, still with the same width but taller a bit. What’s different from the old generation and this one? Not much really processor, designer, memory, camera and other parts of the iPhone. Keeping this short and simple to read.

Review

Design
Very sleek and stylish. I like the back cover of the iPhone 5, I went for the black as I’m not keen with white colour phones. (They get dirty easily)

Size and Weight
Fits perfectly in my hand. More lighter than the previous iPhones.

Specs
I do notice the speed and the quickness of multitasking. Heard articles that this beast contain triple core graphics which is great for our gamers out there. I was hoping to see Quad Core built-in, maybe the next generation will have it. The memory is still reasonable with 1 gig, would love to see 2 gig next year.

Price
Starting from £529 for 16GB, expensive than before. I weren’t expected to see this phone would cost at least £529 on the market. It is best to get hold of these iPhone 5 on contract with EE, O2, 3, Vodafone etc.

OS Features
iOS6 has over 200 new features available on many iDevices. One thing I like about the update is the AppStore, you do not need to go back to the home screen for each time you download/update an app. Siri has been updated to understand in many languages which include Chinese, Japanese, Spanish etc.

Apple has got rid of Google Maps so they have develop a map app for their iDevices. To be honest I still prefer the Google Maps, Apple map is very outdated. (Need to get their heads down and work hard)

Issues
So far I have problems in connecting my iPhone to my wifi network, it’s either connected for 30 minutes or disconnection every 10 minutes. (Depend on my luck really). Apple is currently fixing this issue.

Recommendation
I do recommend this iPhone 5 if you haven’t got one now, best phone in the world. You cannot beat Apple products for sure. iPhone 5 is simple, easy and helpful. You won’t be disappointed after buying this iPhone 5. 10/10

HTC One X is the first handset with quad core processor built-in with a lovely 1GB RAM and 32GB storage. The platform for this handset is Android with HTC Sense. It does not have a microSD slot which it is a bit of downside for me, I love adding music and pictures; and when it comes to 32GB it’s not enough for me. The screen is very beautiful, the touch screen is fantastic very responsive to all apps I have navigate. Camera is outstanding, will try out the recording feature at later stage. Full review will be up shortly.
