Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

My smartphone, no doubt, has to efficiently performs professional functions such as Document Viewer, Document Editor, Pushmail, Documents, Spreadsheets, Adobe Reader, which BlackBerry Q10 Black does well. A small device like this might neatly fit in my pockets, but that's all it can and nothing much with the cramped screen size of 3.1 inches. I more than often go for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth in my smartphone is essential more for hands-free calling than file sharing. I am mostly traveling around and even if it is in known streets, I prefer having my GPS navigation guiding me along, in case of traffic or diversions.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I hate typing messages on the BlackBerry Q10 Black with its tiny keypad as I misspell a single word more than 3 times. The multi-touch makes it very simple for me to zoom in or out of images and websites. Video recording is fun and lets me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the BlackBerry Q10 Black sports other excellent features and fairly makes up. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the BlackBerry Q10 Black with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 3.1 inch display may be quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. The display of my smartphone is mostly on through the day due to gaming or reading ebooks. The awesome viewing experience of the AMOLED display is also quite conservative in terms of power consumption. It's truly a pleasure to read ebooks or play graphic-intensive games on the AMOLED display of this smartphone. I can easily zoom in or out in a game or turn ebook pages using with just a flick of my finger, all because of the multi-touch technology. The 1.5 GHz is quite a decent frequency, but I would prefer something higher than that for gaming. Dealing with lags and slow load time really makes me impatient when it comes to gaming. Now I can enjoy extremely graphical games with no lags, and on top of this manage to multitask with the 2 GB RAM of this smartphone. I can download and save all my cool and graphic-heavy games with the 16 GB internal storage of this smartphone and still have enough room for my ebooks and apps. If you have gaming and ebook library as huge as mine, you can never say no to an extendable memory storage.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 3.1 inches display of the BlackBerry Q10 Black was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I prefer texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. I can make pinching movements with my fingers on the screen of the BlackBerry Q10 Black to zoom in and zoom out images. I only have to flick my fingers on the screen to rotate images or turn pages of ebook because of the Multi-Touch technology. It's not that amazing to own a smartphone with Yes, 8 MP camera resolution. There are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think the pictures will be so cool with this phone. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selfies. Me and my friends are a huge followers of the selfie and groupie trend, we hardly stop clicking 'em. If you find clicking selfies as cool as I do then you should definitely opt for a smartphone with an amazing secondary camera. I like the GPS feature, especially for new locations and traffic updates. I don't worry charging when I can charge my phone with the laptop; I can even transfer files with this. I can't be choosing between which media files to keep and which ones to delete, due to internal storage as low as 16 GB. It's irritating to delete favourite files from my smartphone due to memory issues, so I always go with larger internal storage.
