When CNet editor and reviewer Brian Bennett lost his "lovely HTC One test unit" while traveling, he was forced to use the other test phone he brought with him, a BlackBerry Z10.
He particularly liked BlackBerry Hub ("made missing important communiques very difficult") and the long battery life.
Still, after actually using it as a daily device, he liked it, though he's not quite ready to ditch the HTC One, with its bigger screen and Android apps.
"My key takeaways from this experience are; the Z10 is a smoothly operating and highly functional smartphone which is particularly adept at mastering your messages. Also, as I expected from a BlackBerry device, the Z10's virtual keyboard is fast, accurate, and a joy to type with."
