Both come with best specs and features but in BlackBerry Z10 vs Google Nexus 4 comparison, Z10 has LTE while Nexus 10 doesn’t have. On every other count both compete well

Research in Motion or BlackBerry’s latest and arguably its best smart-phone till date is making people sit up and take notice. The handset is among the best in the market and is set to compete well with other top smart-phones including Apple’s iPhone 5, Samsung’s Galaxy S3 or Note 2, Google’s latest handset Nexus 4 and others that rule the market right now.

For starters, this is Ontario, Canada based company’s first handset in the last one and half years and the company expects this handset to initiate a complete turnaround in its fortunes in the smart-phone markets across the world. The smart-phone leader that once ruled the market till just a few years is hoping it to help revive itself and become a credible competitor to Apple and Samsung.

Though the verdict has been rather unclear about the handset, the fact that the handset competes well against the market is indeed very satisfying for BlackBerry bosses as well as BlackBerry users. The first full touchscreen handset running on its latest and much more improved operating system is better than top handsets in display quality as well as many other features. Research in Motion hasn’t let its fans down. Here we take the BlackBerry Z10 to a showdown with Google Nexus 4, and observe the details as the dust settles. BlackBerry Z10 is BlackBerry’s attempt to regain some of the glory it lost in the new smartphone era, and stabilize its market share. In short, BlackBerry had a lot riding on the Z10 and the recently launched BlackBerry 10 series of smartphones and operating system. The Z10 has got favorable reviews from most corners but in today’s competitive time, no one can be a winner by itself.

On the other hand search giant Google’s Nexus 4, developed by Google in collaboration with LG Electronics, is a phone which features the Android OS in its truest of forms. Nexus devices, since produced by Google, are always one of the first to get Android’s latest update. Some updates may not be available to a manufacturer for some time, or may not be available at all, but the Nexus range has continued support. Nexus has previously been brought by Google in association with Samsung, HTC and Asus. Though LG doesn’t have the best reputation in consumer electronics, particularly in mobiles, the current version of Nexus is one of the best featured smartphones available in the market today.

The two handsets coming from the best companies compete very well. Z10 has a 4.2 inch display with 1280×768 resolution which offers sharp display output. The phone is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 2GB RAM. It has a 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash on the rear that records video in full HD resolution, and a front-facing camera of 2 megapixel with HD recording. The phone comes with 16GB inbuilt memory, which is expandable to 64GB with the support of a microSD card. The phone also has some now standard features like #G, 4G, EDGE, GPRS and dual-band Wi-Fi. The phone offers a special service for BlackBerry enterprise customers which is called BlackBerry Balance. It is a service which allows a user to switch between the personal and work profile with just a flick of the finger. The official profile and its content will be controlled by the employer company.

Notwithstanding the fact that search giant is facing supply issues, Google Nexus 4 is in a class of its own as it comes with a 4.7-inch WXGA IPS display that offers a nice resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels and a PPI ratio of 318 ppi. Both the handsets are very powerful, though Google Nexus 4 seems to be the winner as under the hood, it has a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU powers that offers a clock-speed of 1.5GHz and it is boosted by 2GB of RAM. As far as cameras are concerned, both come with the same 8 mega pixel camera. Though in the media options, BlackBerry Z10 performs better as it comes with LTE and NFC. To be true, both the handsets are great and it solely depends on your choice.
