BlackBerry 10 OS review

The BB10 OS camera function has a couple of nifty features, including Burst mode, which lets users take a flurry of photographs of an object or person. They can then pick the best one and discard any where people aren't looking at the camera or have their eyes closed.

Users mourning the lack of an Instagram app in the BlackBerry World store will be heartened to know that BB10 offers a plethora of different camera filter options, including the distinctly hipsterish "Sixties" mode.

It also features more generic photo-editing tools - such as crop and lighten - as well as auto-focus, and filming modes.
