    Z10 (STL100-1) vs Z3 ?? Which one is better, especially when it comes to the processing power? Z3 has a newer processor. Z10 (STL100-1) has TI OMAP 4470. But Z3's CPU is clocked at 1.2 ghz. Z10 is clocked higher. Z3 launches android apps slightly faster (from what i've seen). But Z3 takes some time to load up 'Asphalt 8' as compared to Z10 (watched a video on youtube). So, which phone has more processing power? Which phone is better, in general ?? Will Z10 support future OS updates (following 10.3.1) considering it is an older device? Which phone should i buy? Just to mention, Z10's screen size is OK for me. And only STL100-1 is available here. I even thought about buying a Q5. But the small screen is not for me. I don't want to spend as much as Z30. So which phone should i go for? Z10 (STL100-1) or Z3? Considering the processing power and future OS updates? Thanks a lot.

    As far as specifications go I'd still have to give the nod to the Z10. It's better in nearly every category. Remember,the processor and RAM work hand in hand. The Z10 has a higher clock speed and more ram so it should be "faster" especially when you have many apps/tabs open.

    The Z3 has a larger batter which is one of the biggest weaknesses of the Z10. To counter this the Z10 has a removable battery. I would recommend the Z10 with a spare batter and charger. You'll never have to charge your phone again.

    Regarding the OS, I don't see BlackBerry dropping the Z10 anytime soon. It should be supported well beyond the time you stop using it.

    Z10 is definitely better in most aspects. It's faster, and has better screen quality.

    I heard the Z3 has this "Miracast" and "WiFi Direct" which I really don't use so... Though, the Z3 does outperform the Z10 battery wise, and has a bigger but lower quality screen.

    It's really no debate whether the Z3 could perform the Z10 or not. It was built to be weaker than the Z10.

    The Z3 lacks NFC, Magnetometer and Gyroscope, while the Z10 have them.

    If I had to pick between the two- just based on specs (regardless of owning a Z10 for a year now), I would go with the Z10. Then upgrade the OS, and either get an extended battery or another one as a backup.
