10. Apple iPhone 5 – Creeping in at number 10, although generally unpopular in the office, is the iPhone 5. As a result of the popularity of Apple products its hard to ignore them and there’s no denying that the iPhone 5 is a looker. The iPhone 5 looks much the same as the iPhone 4 and 4s, increased in size from 3.5” to 4” its still smaller than most Android devices. Having said that it does have some very impressive features and the OS is very user friendly. The 4” retina display has 326 ppi and a resolution of 1136 x 640, the extra size on the screen allows for one extra row of app icons on the home screen. The iPhone 5 is equipped with a Dual-Core A6 chip which, Apple believe, is powerful enough to run the device, having used an iPhone 5 for a while I did sometimes find it lagging behind on speed. Regardless, the iPhone 5 is a solid, easy to use smartphone.
9. BlackBerry Z10 – The BlackBerry Z10 is a solid smartphone, I find it better than the QWERTY Q10 because of its flexibility, it also does not have a keyboard taking up half the space on the of the device. When BB10 was first launched the app support was pretty weak, although it has now grown, it is still not comparable with iOS or Android. The display lacks that of a premium device at 1280 x 768 px and the camera at only 8mp falls short of the likes of the Sony Xperia Z and even the Xperia SP. On the plus side it does support a 64MB micro SD card, has a quick 1.5GHz Dual-Core processor and a removable battery. Ideal for those business types who will be mainly attracted to the Blackberry Z10. Although the screen is smaller than most Android and Windows Phone’s it is still larger than the latest iPhone.
