I purchased the Q10 Jan 11, 2014 and returned to the store Jan 22, 2014. I've been a loyal blackberry follower ever since they hit the market. I couldn't take opening an app and swiping until my finger blistered trying to close it. The screen was so small it took allot of squinting to read it. The screen was so dull it was horrible to look at. My blackberry bold had a clear screen(it was small but I could read it). The phone in full operation reminded me of the toy display phones. I am very ddisappointed in blackberry. I should also add I couldn't even open the blackberry app on the phone! So what good is blackberry without the app or BBM? Very disappointed that I had to give up my blackberry for the next 2yrs. I will miss my keyboard :-(

This is my honest opinion of the blackberry q10, i've had this phone for 8 months. I'm gonna be discussing likes and dislikes

Likes: decent audio speaker quality and screen, battery life is actually good/ full day of normal use could last you a whole day without a charge, it depends on how you frequently you use the device. Quick settings/os based/.

Dislikes: the operating system is lacking in many areas: slow, sluggish Web browser, os is very boring, too many app updates and software updates, camera is not to good because for a high price tag we expect the camera to do a decent job. The pictures lack in detail and colour, screen size is too small, which means you have to do a lot of scrolling to read up long messages etc, bad front facing camera, not to good video recording, to me In terms of the design of the Q10 I'm not a fan of it. This is the biggest concern blackberry has a lack of applications in blackberry app world, it doesn't run smoothly on the operating system, I don't like the new so called swipe up gesture to close up.has there's no physical keys or anything to speak off. By doing this it takes abit of a learning curve to get it right and it's not that easy to use. The hub. Many people love this new feature. But I think it's a waste of time. It's somewhat confusing and slow. It's not basic

Final words

I'm really disappointed with blackberry 10 nvm which model device I think the os is lacking big time compared to android,ios apple. BlackBerry 10. Ofcourse it's a great platform for users who are messaging emails fans etc. But I think other platforms can also provide the same experience or even better. I'm afraid this is gonna be my last blackberry device. Cheers.

Good size, great OS, the Hub (Peak and Flow) is excellent.

- except -

The hardware keyboard is utter crap. It starts to fail about 3-6 months in, and "double-types."

Buyer beware.

Big differences between Q10 and Q5 : power of the processor 1,5 / 1,2 ; camera 8 mp / 5 mp ; removable battery / non-removable battery and generally the quality of the materials especially for the keyboard, which is essential for a BB. So, if you dont have money for a Passport do yourself a favor and get a Q10. It is upgradable to BB10.3 and it does exactly the same things. Actually it does All ! I didnt touch my laptop and my tablet since one year ago when I got Q10.
