BlackBerry, very honestly, still has a long way to go before it can challenge against the likes of Apple, Samsung and Sony in the market. A lot of BlackBerry devices have come and gone in the past, and yet none has been able to gain any kind of momentum that would be something to brag about.
However, hopes are still up, and the company has just introduced the brand new BlackBerry Z3 handset that is now looking to make an entry into the market with a lot of hope pinned on the device to do good before the end of the year.
BlackBerry shot to fame a long long time ago when a BB device spelled class and heavy pocket. It became a sort of statement for all those owning one in those times. However, times change. And so has the smartphone market with the arrival of Android and iOS.
But with smartphones coming thick and fast these days, BlackBerry also realizes that it still has a perfectly good BlackBerry Z10 handset that's also in the market. In fact, the device will face some in-house competition with the Z3 now released.
So if we were to take both the devices together and put them in the same comparison bracket, who do you think will have an upper hand? We take a closer look.
