Features Key features of the BlackBerry Q10  vs Bold 9930 

screen size

On the one hand the high pixel density of the 3.1-inch display means that films look crisp and clear, but on the other they appear pretty small with large black bars above and below.

It's actually a relatively high-quality screen with a 1:1 aspect ratio and a resolution of 720 x 720 pixels, making for a very good pixel density of 330 ppi.

Dual core
Bold 9930
Single core
You get a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM inside the BlackBerry Q10, which provides more than enough power for day to day tasks and the general running of the handset - as a result BB 10 runs smoothly for the most part.

camera resolution

The CPU is slightly less powerful, the camera resolution is down to 5MP and the smartphone is nowhere nearly as nice looking as the Q10.

The Super AMOLED display has very good color saturation and contrast and it's viewable outdoors.

Still, $250 for a good looking smartphone is rather tough to swallow in a world filled with dual-core processors, 4G speeds, high-end screens, cameras or mobile platforms that are exceptionally more refined.
