However, the company has made efforts to change its identity due to increasing competition in the smartphone arena. In order to survive in the market, the smartphones are to be manufactured and produced keeping in mind the requirements of the general masses and not just one segment. Blackberry may be late to catch that, but the changes made in terms of its operating system paid well for the company.

The Gionee Elife E6 smartphone comes with extremely thin bezels, providing the handset with a thickness of only 7.9 mm. The smartphone measures 142.5mm in stature and 69.4mm in breadth. In comparison, the Blackberry Q10 smartphone comes at a thickness of 10.4mm. The Q10 is notably chunkier than the E6 smartphone, primarily due to the traditional physical QWERTY keypad, incorporated in the Q10 smartphone. In comparison, the Elife E6 is equipped with a touch display, which supports its responsive touch controls. The Blackberry Q10 smartphone measures 119.6mm in stature and 66.8mm in breadth, which is considerably smaller than its counterpart, the Elife E6.

The Super AMOLED display comes with a resolution of 720p, along with a pixel density of 328-ppi. However, considering the screen size, the resolution and pixel density may be perfect on the Q10 smartphone, but not as impressive as the Full HD resolution of the Elife E6 smartphone.
