    Default How is iPhone 5 better than the Z10

    I came here with the purpose of knowing this.

    I have a friend that says that the Z10 is not on the level of the 4S and too far away from iP5. Not sure what he means by that so I was hoping to get some answers on this.

    Have your friend explain just what he means.

    Well, I'm not trying to start a war here. I know that what I ask is prone to that. But I'm just trying to be info on it. I've never had an iPhone though I've done jailbreak for friends. I've used it a bit. And I would love some heads up on what you think it's better on the iPhone 5 for example or 4S. Hey, you learn something every day.

    I'll ask my friend later when me and him gets off work. I wanted to hear some other opinions and views.

    The z10 is bloody fantastic! I'm anxious to get my hands on the q10 and see bb10 on a physical keyboard.

    I'm guessing what he means is ecosystem. Hardware is comparable, with the edge going to the i5. Software is a matter of taste, but BB did a bang-up job on BB10.

    As a business user, I'm a big fan of BB. Honestly though, as a personal user, I think they need a bit more 3rd party app support and better marketing.

    Depends. I think there are some things better than others. Some would disagree.

    Personally, I think that Apple runs circles around any phone BB has ever made. The phrase "it just works" pretty much sums it up.

    You've mentioned three devices: the iPhone 5, the iPhone 4S and the Blackberry Z10. I was a die-hard Blackberry fanboy for many years with no regrets, but I have not had the opportunity to spend quality time with the Z10 to give a credible opinion, but I can in regard to the 4S and 5. If you've been reading throughout the iMore forum since October 2011 when the 4S became available to the public, you would know that I thoroughly enjoyed using the 4S so much that I had no desire to upgrade to the 5. Every chance I got, I expressed my satisfaction with it and I still believe that it is one of the best smartphones ever made. Period. Having said that, it is no match for the raw power and speed of the iPhone 5. Everyday tasks are noticeably faster, however, the things you can do with the 5 can be done with the 4S. I won't get into things like the camera because I don't take a lot of photos with my iPhones. Anyway, the 4S is more than enough to satisfy one's smartphone needs, in my opinion and if money is an issue, get it. If not, get the iPhone 5 or its successor. They're both easy to use, professional looking, well built and powerful. I hope I was helpful. Take care.

    All right, I see now. It is like he sid. It just works.

    It's like Halo in its time or like Call of Duty. It might or might not be the best but it just works, it's sturdy and reliable.

    I agree with D, I was a die hard, loyal BB user for years. The 4S is an awesome device that just works. Whether its the iPhone 4S, 5 or Z10 it's all personal preference. Use what works for you.

    Well, you see? I never liked it. I played Halo 1 complete on PC and didn't see anything I didn't see before. Actually at that time I was more impressed by Battlefield 1942 and its 64 player battles in big maps back in 2003. For me Halo was a simple shooter, made right, that it just worked and that was it. Now for console only gamers I understand that it must have been a game changer since it was an FPS perfectly executed on a console. For us PC gamers it was just an all right game. That's where my comparison comes from.

    I used to be a hard core quake player I played
    Q3 arena for about 10 years.. Halo is ok but quake was quite a bit better.. I do still play halo games and cod on consoles now but q3 would probably be my favorite of all time

    Op. it depends on what category you're
    Comparing.. iPhone kills most any phone in the app department and iPhones are always smooth but, everything mostly can be argued

    I say we ensure to not get into an annoying mine is better than yours argument. Everyone should just get the phone they want, and not feel the incessant need to prove anything to anyone. I must say I love how iMore has less of these types of threads than other MB sites.

    That said I use a 4s which is a great little phone. I know the 5 is better, but I donīt have one and I am waiting for whatīs next. I donīt know what BBOS is like as I have never used it, but i have alot invested in Apple/Google so the BB phones, though great I imagine, wonīt work for me.

    Exactly. I don't know why so many people ask "What phone should I get???????" Like we can answer that. Yes, we can tell you some differences in them all, but when it comes down to it, it is your personal preference.

    I'm currently using a Z10 and an iP5. I prefer the Z10 hands down over the iP5 for most all tasks, especially typing.

    There are some cool apps I've put on the iP5 I wish were on the Z10, and The Weather Channel works better on the iPhone than the Z10.

    User experience though, the Z10 is fantastic, and the iPhone irritates me..... but I'm an unashamed, solid BB fan/user.

    The iPhone was given to me for work, which seems to be make it double irritating because this is not an enterprise device by any means. Its a consumer device, as is shown by the non-work related apps I find pretty cool. Like the U-Verse app where I can use the iPhone as a remote for my TV. Strava where I can view my GPS data for my cycling and running, so on and so forth.....

    I was excited to have the opportunity to "test drive" the iPhone on someone else's dime, but so far I quite entrenched in BlackBerry, and thoroughly happy with BB10. Just wish I could have received a Q10 for work

    Several small items, that don't allow me to operate as quickly/smoothly as my 9930 did.

    Conference calls - If I added a number to an individual's contact in this format 1.800.123.5555X123456# my 9930 saw that, and prompted me to dial the extension/PIN (from what I understand Android also acknowledged this format). The iPhone, I now have to go through all my contacts and change the X to a ; instead. The problem is, the number doesn't show up in the contact list as a number to dial for those respective contacts. So even though the format will work, I can put it in the meeting notes, and dial from there, I'm frustrated I don't have the numbers listed with the contacts, so when I know I have a call, I pull that person's contact card up, dial the conference call number. The phone is basically causing me extra work. Every conference call I accept, I have to edit the meeting to put the conf bridge number in a format the phone will acknowledge.

    Calendar - Calendar appointments accepted in Outlook don't show as accepted on the iPhone. This was completely seamless on my 9930

    Typing - Key to answering/responding to emails is just not conducive to being productive. I just find it rather difficult to type on the iPhone. (I can't avoid it either, so I'm forced to get used to it, and its not happening) My Z10 is hands down, more productive to type with. So much so, there is no need to use common mobile phone shorthand.

    Why do I have to slide to unlock, if I just used a button to turn it on? Why in the app store do I always have to put my password in for free apps, and twice to buy one?

    Riding in the car, playing music, answering calls, its great.

    The way see it, the apps make the iPhone. The OS is just there, unless there's something I'm missing, its just swipe and tap.

    I'm not bashing the iPhone, its just not geared for productivity. It does what it does well, and that's play music, video, take pictures/video, and run cool apps.

    Receiving/Sending/syncing email/appt's is a start, but being productive using it for email/conf-calls is another level that the iPhone is just falling short. I can do it, but it's a bit clunky doing it....
