Review: Blackberry Z10 VS iPhone 5

According to one website, the new BlackBerry Z10 beats the iPhone 5 in one specific area: its ability to be repaired.

Tech repair website ifixit regularly takes computers, gaming systems, and cellphones apart and scores them based on their perceived repairability. Based on the site’s ranking system, the BlackBerry Z10 scored an 8 out of 10 in repairability (10 being the best), while the iPhone 5 was only given a 7 out of 10.
According to ifixit, the BlackBerry Z10 earned a high score for the following reasons: The battery can be replaced without tools, the motherboard and display can be removed easily, and standard screws are used to put the Z10 together. The iPhone 5, on the other hand, uses uncommon screws, and many of the phone’s components are either soldered together or are combined into one piece, making repair much more expensive.

BlackBerry has been struggling lately, especially after a weak launch for the Z10. The smartphone, released in mid-March, has some impressive features (most notably its great onscreen keyboard). However, the Z10 is not expected to pose a serious threat to the iPhone 5, which currently holds the title for the world’s best-selling smartphone. Both the Z10 and the iPhone 5 retail for $199

  1. The fact that the Blackberry has good repairing ability is a useful feature to have, but it isn’t going to pull any users away from the iPhone. The general practicality of the iPhone, with all it’s integration such as iTunes and the App store make it a very strong competitor and so to compete, they need much more than just a good phone.
