The S4 has everything better except for the keyboard... which is not something that everyone likes.

this is better than the S4. And the price is reasonable. Q10 is one of the best phones of 2013.

As someone has already mentioned, current android flagship devices are getting a bit big. Some people already owns a computer, i just want a organised in my pocket.

I have used Android, IOS , Symbian and now Iam using BB 9700. In my opinion BB has its own class, own users. They are the one providing the experience of the track pad and qwerty keypad to its customers.According to met he only drawback currently is battery life, RAM( as its laggs)(9700 has a 256MB RAM)and skype. The keypad is just lovely, I just love typing with it the whole day, its very convenient!. Ill be switching soon to 9900 (because the specifications is higher up-til now 1.2GHz with 768MB RAM) to experience OS 7.1 with a touch screen after that ill surely go to BB Q10 when it gets cheaper. RIM surely knows what their track pad means to the users. By removing it they are switching the existing users to the next level with touchscreen experience. The Q10 is equipped with heavy specificatiosn not up to the mark of ANDROIDS/WINDOWS/IOS, but remember its not just the hardware, but the software utilizing the hardware. BB does'nt requires quad-core to run its OS smooth just like Iphones. Its the OS's compatibility with the hardware. Q10 is equipped with Dual-Core 1.5, 2GB RAM (which is the only issue now to avoid lagging) and it also supports skype. With a 8MP back and 2MP front is the best decision. Smartphones nowadays are just getting bigger with the latest technology, thats good as we are moving towards a new era of future. I respect personal choices and preferences. I have OIS and Android users at home I know everything about their phone and love the OS on both the phones. It has its own class. Games, Apps, Screen Size, Quality Videos/Pictures you name it and you have everything you need in your smartphone on the go. But I personally prefer tablets for those purpose. A smartphone should be smart and Q10 surely is. They legacy of the keypad is still there. I love my BB as mentioned earlier ill switch to BB9900 soon. I love the keypad and the track pad as BB gave us that opportunity to experience it. If they are removing the trackpad and getting all the existing users to a new platform of touch with the keypad is a real invention, thats what I personally believe. Alot of you may not agree with my statement but in the end thats personal choice and again I respect everyone's personal opinion. I mean all we as BB users lacking now is video calling,RAM,limited third-party apps and ofcourse new UI. BBOS10 is surely a new innovation. I would love to experience it and will always be a BB User. Appreciate ya'll time. :)

Obviously the device is not for you huh? I'm pretty sure this device was made for those die-hard BB fans who just missed the classic hard-keyboard.

so BB loyalist rejoice that they can get their hands on the new BB device with the signature hard keyboard while still maintaining the touch screen feature. I just hope it also goes to other carriers like AT&T.

Blackberry is really trying but their specs once again fall short by the juggernauts dominating the markets

2.Samsung s4, note3, or htc one. Are too large phones, anything over 4.3 inch is too large.
