I am constantly on the go, running around all day, making appointments, at appointments taking notes, on set for this or running to meet something for that. To make a long story short, I am a busy bee! I mean, it's part of what I do! I am always moving and not to sound cheesy or anything but it's important for me to have a device that can 'keep moving' with me.. Enter the BlackBerry Q10 - BlackBerry was kind enough to equip me with their new Q10 device and It couldn't have come at a better time! It's probably one of the most busiest times of my year and here I am! I have been trying out the new device and am already finding it to be a necessary part of functioning throughout the day.
If you know me personally then you know I am an original keyboard user! I love a good keyboard on a phone, especially, when it's most notably, a BlackBerry keyboard. With that being said, the statement is no different when it comes to the new BlackBerry Q10 - The sleek design and easy to hold (may I add) curve of the phone is so major. Also, the keystrokes are perfect to, I just started using it and still am waiting to make a mistake (easy to adjust and utilize to the phone right from the beginning)...
Oh & what's this!?!?!? The new BlackBerry 8 megapixel camera's have great built in sensitivity, exposure and focus! Also the 3.1-inch screen is a great size and at 320-pixels per inch, it's even sharper than the iPhone's Retina display. Blacks are deep, colors are vibrant, and viewing angles are wide. There is also a great camera application called "Time Shift," which captures multiple shots and lets you choose the best expression for each face from the burst of photos the application took at that time. You can also record 1080p high-definition video or chat with the 2-megapixel lens on the front.
The BlackbBerry hub, a.k.a the central control unit as I like to call it, but better described as a all-in-one space for your updates, e-mails, texts and messages from various sources, is such a "WHY THE HECK WASN'T THIS MADE BEFORE" kind of thing. The ability to check everything all in one central location makes the overall experience that much better and personally keeps me more efficient.. I personally feel like I forget to respond to people less because the message is always in the same place as my other messages so I inevitably pass it again. And it's basically just easy to use so plusses all around over there.
I am also getting familiar with the apps and one stick out app to me has to be the BlackBerry Story Maker! An easy to use pick and choose style - Movie Maker that automatically pieces togethers selected pictures, audio and video into a functional mini-film! I love it because all I have to do is tap the screen on the pictures/video I want to use, select a song as a layer and then it does all the work! I can't wait to put together a cool video together for you guys from TIFF!
Overall this device is proving to live up to it's glorious expectations! It is efficient, easy to use and is doing an amazing job of keeping me organized and connected while on the go and especially at this crazy hectic time during TIFF! I have so much things going on so it's nice to have a phone who's alerts actually alert you! I love the sleek and thin design and the overall functions of the device internally. I think it's safe to say I am just loving my experience with the BlackBerry Q10!
