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...

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.

Its a very competitive market and to release the Z10 without skype or whats app or a proper working facebook or twitter or foursquare is very disrespectful. Blackberries are great but the Z10 is unfurnished. And stop making excuses that whatsapp or skype or other apps wil be released "SOON". Everyone keeps saying soon soon soon soon or its on its way etc. When the truth is iOS and Android has been enjoying it for years already. Stop defending the Z10 cause it doesnt equal iPhone or Galaxy. Even the older blackberries has a proper facebook and longer batterylife. I sold my Z10 because it just cant deliver.

Blackberry made a HUGE mistake by releasing this first instead of focussing on the Q10 which has real promise.

Was very eager to get the toy but when started using it felt like a dumb!. Key features like Social feeds, sharing etc are missing. Apps not workin properly. A very hectic way to get your contacts synced where as desktop application for OS 7 and the previous one is much easier to organise and get hold of all the data. No facility of syncing Back up from OS 7. Last but not least why should a customer pay heavy amount for a fone which has an impression of Eunuch.

I think the product has been marketed hastily without keeping in mind the consequences and proper research. In my humble opinion Z10 will make BB suffer more then the previous ones

The official confirms WHAT'S APP coming to Blackberry 10 in March. There's no doubt, every folks I show up my Z10 talk to me. "I want that bloody Phone, mate !"

To get it to last long, please do the following:

Make sure you have the latest BlackBerry World update;

Disable music updates in BBM (because it is constantly connecting to the internet to receive them);

Use ONLY the 750 ma charger that came with the phone, as opposed to older BB chargers;

Turn off NFC and;

Turn off WiFi if not in use or if not needed.

Trust me folks, you will notice a huge difference

Having a data plan on the Z10 opens it up to the internet like BIS does on pre-BB10 handsets. BlackBerry has essentially made getting on the internet a simple matter of putting a sim card in and browsing.
