BB10's search function is far more comprehensive than those offered by equivalent iOS and Android devices.

For instance, when typing in a person's first name, BB10 will throw up the contact details and social media interactions of anyone you know with the same name, as well as search engine options to find out more about them.

The same goes for places, as the search function will list anyone you know who may have checked in at that location, and also provide you with links to the Google, Bing and Yahoo search engines for you to find out more.   

Meanwhile, performing the same searches on a Samsung Google Nexus device running Android 4.2.2 provided us with contact details for people with the same name stored on the phone, as well as the names of several celebrities with similar monikers.

The iOS device offered a little more information, including social networking details, but nowhere near as much as BB10.
