Prizefight: BlackBerry Z10 vs. Apple iPhone 5

Many BlackBerry users left the platform for Apple's iPhone. Does the all-touch-screen Z10 do enough to keep their die-hards happy and bring back the customers they lost? Let's find out!

Blackberry's last stand

Which phone is your king of the ring?

BlackBerry still has its following of loyalists but their numbers have dwindled. Even enterprise customers have transitioned to the iPhone and Android phones, a place that used to be dominated by BlackBerry.

The BlackBerry Z10 is the company's first all-touch-screen phone with a sleek design and a bigger, higher-resolution screen. Its new operating system is based purely on gestures without a physical button.

The iPhone 5 has continued to be a beast in the Prizefight ring. Even though the Samsung Galaxy S3 has surpassed the iPhone 5 in CNET editors' minds, we're facing the Z10 off against the phone that it lost most of its market share to.

Has BlackBerry done enough to keep their hardcore fans happy with its latest phone? And more importantly, is the Z10 good enough to bring back the users they lost?

Who do you think is the king of this Prizefight Punchout? Cast your vote!
