Have just downloaded today 20th. I appreciate that searching for contacts is easy now as we hav a ful keybaord. I like the flipping to lock or ignore calls. The curser can be beta manipulted. On the downside I don't like the new theme. Prefer the old one and for others jus starting to use the OS they won't know wat is on and off as it jus has highlighted or not.
I just updated my BB 10 device with 10.3.1.1565 today morning 20thFeb.
Some cool features just listing the practical ones..
1. can set wallpapers and background with help of home screen.
2. Battery saver mode( need to test out the improvement)
3. Equalizer options both in music player and video player)
4. NO FM RADIO THOUGH thumbs down..
More you can download and experience...
I AM ALSO HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. The rotation lock not working and turns the applications landscape mode, automatically, .. that is rather odd because I don’t use my phone in landscape mode normally. Even the contacts number are NOT visible properly in Landscape mode, under CONTACTS, How to CORRECT it
Anand, 20 Feb 2015How to update to 10.3 in India through PC (Blackberry Link)?
It says that it will update some... moreHi
In my country updating is simple. Just find yourself a wifi hot spot and connect your handset with the hot spot.
The process will begin automatically and this helps you to avoid using your airtime
Well the news of the new optimised BlackBerry 10.3 sounds interesting. Hopefully there is a lot of great work put into the new OS to fix the unfinished job with the old OS.
How to update to 10.3 in India through PC (Blackberry Link)?
It says that it will update some components in blackberry link itself first and asks you to disconnect all the blackberry devices. Then it goes into "software update in process" and then takes ages without showing any progress in the progress bar...
Also I found another bug. The rotation lock seems to work only in landscape mode. That means if you turn on rotation lock, the app will only work in landscape orientation.. that is rather odd because I dont use my phone in landscape mode that much....
The 10.3.1 update is out in india.
Guys go ahead and update your phones..... it is really nice. It's a bit jittery when you browse through system options but i'm sure that will be fixed through a bug software update.
It is already released today and many updates have been taken place across the continents. Please update and enjoy.
NLet us stop the quickly drainage of Z10 battery and annoying hanging :
This is what you do. On your handset display go to a wheel like icon,just touch it so that it becomes active. Having access this icon go into your local network and connections. Enter into this icon again and it will display 4 optionz to choose from.
You have mobile network on top and others, you choose mobile network,after this you have mobile network with two options on and off. By default you leave this option on 'on'. Our attention is with the following option of 'data services'. Here by default your Z10 is placed on 'on' and it is the reason if you have social networks like watsup and facebook and twitter normally run at the background causing your blackberry to contineuosly utilize your battery because you have allowed it.
Just turn the button off when your blackberry is not in use on social networks and turn it on only if you want to engage on to social networks. If you finished on social networks switch it off again.
You will save yourself a lot of strees and grief your battery will begin behaving better and stop hanging unnecessary
Android handsets : LG,Sony Xperia,Samsung,Huawei and many more others I am not aware of, has what is known as friendly user interface. Why do I say that 'cause the weather widget or their weather application is made in a way that it is intergrated with the wallpaper of the handset. You do not need to leave the current display and switch into another so that you check the weather. It is right there and broadcasting the accurate weather details of the day.
With my Z10 I must go into another display to check the weather broadcast. I am saying this way of reading the weather on a SUPER handset like blackberry is inferior compared to Android smartphones. RIM has to invent a better superior software to browse her smartphone.
I do not believe Google is refusing to give away talking google to Blackberry while they make the software available to Iphone products and even to Nokia. Blackberry and RIM is arrogant. They do not want to accept that talking Google is right choice for all smartphones including the Super handset like Blackberry. The Siri woman voice inside Blackberry 10 is not enough compared with talking Google with Android smartphones,and Corntana woman voice in Nokia smartphones.
Even the maps Blackberry is providing us her clients are inferior compared with Android handsets. This is caused by the lack and absence of talking Google. RIM and Blackberry has still a lot to catch up with Android smartphones. They have released the platform Android Lollipop. Even though I haven't found much regarding this new Android OS it looks much promising and a lot tastier than the outgoing KitKat OS version.
Blackberry must work even harder to retain us as her loyal customers.
gadgetpunk, 19 Feb 2015Hi Let us agree on something. The Z10 is not such a great handset. It is missing a lot of sim... moreGoogle is not ready to build their app for blackberry. So that's problem created by google. But you still can install google apps on blackberry by copying apk file.
