BlackBerry Z10 review: Swipe clean

BlackBerry Z10 review: Swipe clean - read the full textThe BlackBerry Z10 heralds the rebirth of a fallen leader in the smartphone market. Its a clean break from the past with a big touchscreen and novel OS, but the same business mentality that made it the favorite of office dwellers around the world...

Coming from an iPhone 4S, I just recently bough the BlackBerry. I was disappointed that the music player did not have an equalizer and a few missing apps, that being said, the BlackBerry has a ton of built in stuff that makes up for it and does what I need it to do! It's great for media and I love to use it a lot for gym, camera is powerful trust me you will like it! Ask me any questions about it and I will try my best yo answer them :)
I am incredibly happy with the Z10 the music I got over it buy even with no equalizer it sounds great! Any questions?

They sucked as well, not to mention that in the Z10, RIM created a whole new OS, that not only works with apps from BlackBerry World, but also with APKs. The iPhone (which is a phone I really like) had the same problems on its very first release, not to mention additional problems for me because it was badly translated into my language at first. Android was the same, poor apps in the beginning, but then got some momentum and now it has the Google Play store which is as big as Jupiter by now. In other words, it's way too early to be judging the Z10's issues as it just got released, specially when it comes to apps, any new OS is bound to have a smaller selection of apps at first.

I have one minor compliant: I'd really like to see text reflow for the browser in the next Os version. The htc one has that and it makes a huge difference for this screen size.

Also, a free ebook reader like moon would be much appreciated.

Good phone but has the worst battery life among other BB phones and other Smart phones.
Battery drains up and disappoints so badly.

i think the phone works just fine, i came from a physical qwerty keyboard of the past BB OS 7, serie 9320, so the only challenge will be the use of the virtual keyboard, until now (has been using it for 10 days), I still feel typos is the main issues here for me, for everything else, it is actually fine.

In all seriousness, I'm kinda tired of South Korea and the Devil(Apple Computers) dominating the market. I like Canada and think they deserve this. The phone is really good so why not? Also, there is no stigma attached to this phone like there is to the iPhone and Galaxy S range.

Seriously though, I know data is expensive here but if people can afford it when buying the iPhone and other major handsets, why not with the Z10? BIS will still function on the older and cheaper BBs so the people getting a BB just for the BIS can still be cheapies.

I have a tablet, laptop and a TV for when I need a larger screen...I think it is a personal preference. I actually think these are all too large. I prefer the Q10 screen size.

From all the reviews I've read, your account doesn't seem to be an accurate review of the working version of the phone. Unfortunately dud units exist and I'm sure that the carrier will replace the unit.

We didn't buy this great device for whatsapp alone. And battery is actually good. Perhaps you did not upgrade your OS ? Because the upgrade did a lot to improve battery performance. And almost everyday new apps are jumping in to the Appstore . I can wait for skype even if it takes forever. Because I know BB10 benefit is for the long term. Come back buddy.
