    Default 40 Reasons why Z10 is Better than iPhone.

    Got that annoying friend or co-worker who thinks their iPhone is the holy grail of smartphones? Here's 45 (added 15 more) reasons why the z10 is better. I'm sick of people saying iPhone is godly without ever saying why.

    Change those attitudes, next time they tell you their phone is better list some of this off and they won't know what to say besides APPS!?

    45 Reasons Z10 > iPhone 5

    01. The z10 isn't a slightly refreshed model of an previous phone - I get it you guys got 250mb ram on the 3gs, 500mb on the 4 and a whole 1GB on the 5, thats dangerously innovative watch out for those guys at apple.
    02. No need for a home button, because it's 2013 and we don't need buttons. Steve Jobs eliminated all buttons except the home button, guess blackberry had to innovate that for him.
    03. Removable battery.
    04. Expandable storage.
    04(a). File storage directly on the device, can download whatever you want and save it in any directory.
    05. Touch on lense screen technology.
    06. Micro HDMI port.
    07. Universal charging port/cable.
    08. NFC capable because it's 2013.
    09. GLO algorithm display dimming tech
    10. Antennas are safely inside the phone, not outside so you will never potentially "hold it wrong".
    11. The browser is HTML.
    12. Notification light - because we're not telepathic yet and can't predict what our phone is doing 30 feet away.
    13. Incredibly organized HUB all in one message place.
    13(a). It has a priority hub that learns your communication style!!
    14. Active frames - display real time data.
    15. Real multi tasking - not fake Multitasking like having to exit an app tapping home button twice and opening another one while the other app takes a break.. 2013 Apple let's go.
    16. Active browser continues playing videos and sound when minimized.
    17. Actionable Toast notifications reply directly to instant notifications.
    18. Plug and play, drag drop files into the z10 from your computer without syncing software.
    19. 2 GB ram instead of the undisclosed 1 GB the iphone has, more ram is better it's 2013 more is better ask android users sorry don't care how efficient your os is.
    20. Z10 has 30% more battery life than iPhone
    21. Bigger battery 1880 mah compared to 1440 on the iphone.
    22. FLASH on the browser, it's 2013 browsers should be truly mobile that means flash sorry Lulpple
    23. Z10 has Around 40% higher resolution screen, 1280x768 vs 1136 vs the iphone 5.
    24. Z10 has Around 10% crisper display of text, images and video, 355 PPI vs 325 PPI
    25. More than 10% larger screen, 4.2" vs 4.0"
    26. Z10 has a Higher theoretical max data transfer speeds over cell networks (more than 4x faster), HSPA+ (84 mbps) vs LTE (80 mbps)
    27. Z10 Supports wireless payment and other transactions using NFC because it's 2013 and that's what people do.
    28. Z10 has More powerful processor, snappier and more responsive (around 20% faster), 1.5 GHz vs 1.3 GHz on the iphone.
    29. Z10 has a intuitive keyboard, probably the best virtual keyboard ever.
    30. Z10 has a 2MB PIXLE front facing camera iphone 5 has 1.2MB
    31. BlackBerry Balance for business users splits your personal and work lives.
    32. Notification sounds are professional - no dogs barking or annoying car noises.
    33. Z10 features the Swipe to unlock almost forgot how impressive this is because it's changed the way I look at any device, swipe killed the home button star.
    34. Z10 makes available time shift camera software, ingenious and very useful.
    35. Z10 has pin to pin messaging.
    36. Shared functionality between Apps
    37. Directly store/download files to your phone to any directory from other devices or the Internet - apple won't let you do this.
    38. QNX - efficient and incredible
    39. Lock screen previews of messages emails and notifications.
    40. Direct search function easily accessible and available - find anything on your phone quickly.
    41. Remote file access built into the OS with enhanced blackberry security.
    42. Zip and Unzip files directly on the phone, can't do that on IPhone 5.
    43. Wireless wifi file transfer, apple doesn't approve.
    43(a). NFC file transfer - Oops they don't even have NFC, they could never use it because their file system is locked down.
    44. Z10 Supports more video formats than iPhone 5.
    45. We can side load android apps, it's a chameleon feature .
    46. Z10 can Speed dial, iPhone 5 can't because dialing and phone use is secondary to Apple, slashing fruit is first.
    47. Z10 has Print to go, using Pin technology print documents directly to your device wirelessly.
    48.
    49.
    50.

    I'll probably get destroyed by all the Lulpple supporters but it is what it is.

    Please explain how the 3gs and 4-5 all have the same ram again. I might be annoying but I don't post fallacies. As for the z10 why have only 1-2% max of the 70m BlackBerry strong upgraded? Across the board that's a horrible migration rate. So instead of blaming apple and Steve Jobbs why aren't you upset at why you and others are not buying the z10? Steve Jobbs tried to help bbry, and all you can do is ridicule one of the greatest minds of our time. The iPhone isn't the holy grail, but if you want to discuss the iPhone there's lots of iPhone sites that will engage your thoughts about it. This is about blackberry.

    I posted 45 reasons why the z10 is better than the iphone 5, it's not my fault you pay 699.99 for incremental upgrades on your iPhone and you have to come to an blackberry forum to make your self feel better about your purchases .

    I don't love the iPhone. It just works. For me. Exactly how I need it. That's me. The z10 is amazing for you, someone who said the 3gs and iPhone 5 have the same ram. Different strokes. Different folks.

    Anyone who says the 3GS and the iPhone 5 has the same ram.....hmm.

    I love my z10 but those that say the iPhone is junk are as stupid as those that say the z10 is junk.

    Both are great phones.
    Overall, I prefer the z10 but there can be more than one quality phone out there.

    I 100% agree with this OTHER then the battery. I came over from an iPhone and I have to say, my iPhone battery lasted me ALL day and then some. My Z10 has not gone more then 75% of the day, which is something that breaks mu heart because I am 100x happier with the Z10 other than that fault.

    As someone who doesn't love the iPhone, even I can refute some of these reasons.

    1. The previous phone was a good phone, so a slight improvement makes a good phone even better.
    2. A home button isn't the end of the world. It's not like the user has to move a cinder block in order to get back to his/her home screen.
    3. Many iPhone users don't want to be bothered with removing a battery, whether it's for extra power or to soft reset the phone.
    4. Many iPhone users are quite comfortable using the cloud for storage. The iPhone is also available in different capacity sizes. The user will buy the one that suits them best.
    8. and 27. Most iPhone users don't feel a need for NFC, so this is meaningless.
    9. I've never heard an iPhone user complain about the display dimming/brightness of the screen.
    14. and 15. Many iPhone users are quite comfortable with using the home button to switch tasks using the recently used apps tray.
    25. Many iPhone users prefer smaller phones. There were many that didn't upgrade from an iPhone 4S because that is the perfect size for them.
    29. Many iPhone users love their keyboards and it works well for them.

    There is no universal "better" when it comes to phones. What works well for one person may not work as well for another person. If the iPhone didn't suit people's needs well, it would have remained at a small market share in a similar way that Apple desktop computers are a small portion of the PC market.

    You want to know who else had a "great mind"? Mike Lazaridus. He started the whole Smartphone evolution. He saw an opportunity and he made it happen, just like any other great CEO would do.
