Both phones were released in 2013 – the Motorola Moto G in Q4 and the BlackBerry Z10 earlier, in January. While the Moto G is praised for its decent price and advanced features, the BlackBerry Z10 might have received a user rating of 9.4/10, but it’s not a flawless smartphone, having battery problems. Plus, it doesn’t support Dual SIM. The first phone comes with seven variants of colors, while the second phone comes in black and white. But we’ll compare both devices to see which one comes with more advantages.

The Moto G comes with a 4.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that supports a resolution of 720×1,280 pixels, while the BlackBerry Z10 has a slightly smaller display, a 4.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, although it renders the same resolution. Plus, the Moto G supports a pixel density of 355 ppi, while the Moto G’s pixel density is of 326 ppi.
