Hello! Today we shall look at what I call a controversial issue. I am talking about the difference in the price of BlackBerry Q10 smart phone and the world’s most popular phone Samsung Galaxy SIV, not only the price but also the difference in the specs and features of the two phones when placed side by side.

Now let’s play a game: If someone gives you N150,000 to buy either BlackBerry Q10 at the price of N110,000 or Samsung Galaxy S4 at N108,000 which one are you going to buy comfortably? Yes comfortably because we assume here that you have excess money at hand!

Yes they say most times, the higher the price; the higher the quality or features of the product. So the purpose of today’s game is to find out how true this ancient saying is with respect to BlackBerry Q10 and Samsung Galaxy SIV respectively.

A second look at the prices of BlackBerry Q10 and Samsung Galaxy SIV:

Frankly, I was surprised at not the huge difference in price between BlackBerry Q10 and Samsung Galaxy SIVbut the fact that I expected wasn’t what I saw. Yes, the higher the price, the greater the…I wouldn’t say further before I directly influence my readers’ choice between BlackBerry Q10 and Samsung Galaxy SIV.

Any way, I went further to confirm these prices and I got a similar thing in the stores. The prices (N110K for Q10 and N108K for S4) are Jumia Nigeria prices. I went further to find out what the prices are like outside here to know for sure if the difference in price is peculiar to this part of the world. I found out a more shocking quote! Overseas Electronics (USA) company  sells the BlackBerry Q10 at $849.99 and Samsung Galaxy S4 at only Overseas Electronics (USA) $689.99 with BlackBerry Q10 being more expensive than Samsung Galaxy S1V at about $160 that is about N26,000!

A second look at the features of BlackBerry Q10 and Samsung Galaxy SIV:

Believe me, BlackBerry Q10 is never a match of Samsung Galaxy S4 Android phone. Anyway you can take it as my opinion. I will always accept that especially now that the rule of four game wants us to make our independent choices.

So let’s see the Specifications of the two great devices. Its just a quick specs after which you should have a nice insight of what the phones look like.

Samsung GS4:

  • Full HD Super AMOLED 5-inch screen;
  • 1.9GHz Quad-core Qualcomm Processor;
  • 2GB RAM
  • 13 megapixel camera back camera and 2MP front camera

Blackberry Q10:

  • Less HD Super AMOLED 3-inch screen;
  • 1.5GHz Duo-core cortex A9;
  • 2GB RAM;
  • 8 megapixel camera back camera and 2MP front camera


Now that you have seen a quick summary of the specs of the two phones, which one will you buy? Samsung Galaxy S4 (World’s most powerful phone) at N108K or the great BlackBerry Q10 at N110K?
