Low-end BlackBerry 10 device with QWERTY keypad leaks - read the full textAfter the Z10 and the Q10, a new BlackBerry 10 device has been uncovered. What you see below is known only as the R-Series for now but is supposedly an upcoming BB10 device. Like the Q10, the phone above has a full QWERTY keypad and a square touchscreen. It is, however, said to be a low-end...

My S3 battery was way worse than my Z10 so in comparison to its competitors I would say it is on par with the market.

I have a z10 and usually get a few phones a year, 4-6, I like the z10 but yeah battery life isn't great, but I never used a phoned that has good battery life tbh. IPhone 4 was the worst so far to date, I had 3 could kill it easily within 4 hours, xperia s was also pretty bad, 5 hours, 6 if I barely used it. The z 10 seems ok so far, but its not great, I will buy the extra battery and charger,

Got to say overall I'm not impressed with my Z10 battery life. Had the phone for a little over a month now and I charge it every night as I deplete 85% of my battery between 8am - 6pm easily.

This blackberry is aweful. I mean they should have stuck with their 9320 Curve. If this is what they are planning as a budget blackberry i'll be stunned!

Samsung must come up with a one like E7 as a flagship or near to that with great hardware specs. I can predict that it will be an instant hit worldwide!

You see they are not stable because they have a weak, monolithic design that hearkens back to the days of Windows 9x and the flawed process isolation and memory management models of the mid-1990s. These architectural flaws cause the OS to become unstable over time, at which point even simple tasks - watching a video, surfing the web - cause the whole house of cards to come crashing down. But thats what they want so that you keep buying a new product. Your IOS or Android device is not built to perform its built to break.

Casual users are tolerant of Android/IOS quirkiness because they still look at their smartphones and tablet devices as mere "toys" for media/entertainment consumption and lightweight communications tasks. Were they to hold them to the standards of reliability associated with a modern Windows PC or Macintosh they would quickly grow tired of Google/Apples "fast and loose" coding practices and start looking for alternatives. And right now, the only two platforms that would hold up under such scrutiny are Windows 8/RT and BB10(QNX).
