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...

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.

Wishing Blackberry all the best. That said, there is NO WAY this can currently equal my GS3 overall. Not being biased, just truthful.

Biggest Disappointment

I have been loyal customer of BB since 2004 and I never missed any model of BB.
I would not go into product details but I just say this is biggest flop , I have been using Z10 for last 15days and I am convince myself on a daily basis that this great innovation of RIM but its not the fact and I switched back to my old TORCH 2.
-lots of bugs
-touch delay response
-Battery works for 5 hours :(

Conclusion: if the product comes like this BlackBerry would become the part of History in one year time.

I tried it at the store and i love it, i will be ditching my Android after a long time, i need something fresh, the Hub, the browser and the keyboard did it for me.

My biggest disappointment is phone size to screen ratio... Even lumia 820 and s3 mini have 4.3 and 4 inch screen despite being smaller phones than z10.. And it's way too pricey !!!!

That's why Blackberry don't release it in Japan. Lucky for us and lucky for Blackberry 10 too ..

this phone is a joke. no whatsapp, no Skype, short battery life, facebook is full of bugs as it shows you random news feed from last week and you cant upload photos in a specific album. Z10 sucks bigtime. and stop telling everyone to not compare it with apple or Samsung phones, duhhhhhhh. when you are buying something you compare it with other phones to get the most of it. don't be blind. stay away from this phone im telling you..

Just to let you know you are very wrong. Not everyone thats getting the phone is a blackberry user. Yes blackberrys are behind in the technology area but blackberry lost its cust base when iphones and android got big. Now rim is going to win those users back. And if someone has a blackberry for years its because they actually last unlike iphones and android devices believe me this is coming from someone that has has 4 iphones in 2years, 2 androids in ayear and ONE blackberry thats lasted 3years and still the best phone, most reliable device i have ever had! sorry people that have lives dont need instagram and bull sh*t apps that android and apple have.
