Hello every one... i am thinking of getting a Q10... can some one advice me on the experience... i have heard mixed remarks... Telcos in my country seams not to promote it.. saying it have big issues with connectivity for voice and data.. synchronization issues... please advise... thanks
Blackberry released this futuristic model almost a year back and it still stands out with it specifications in 2014...No other company has concentrated their resources on the QWERTY phones... I wished for this phone in 2013 and then the cost was like more than 550 USD, but in 2014 it like half the price and still very much out there when you compare it to the best selling phone in my opinion at this time; THE MOTO G. Today, the most widely used function is the Virtual Keypad...we constantly use it for everything on our smart phone, without it we are handicapped...And BB seems the only company out there who understands this essential requirement...
I just wish than in the future BB would also launch a Q15 like the Q5 and maybe even cheaper models with qwerty ..
Now I understand the secret strategy of Blackberry - will sell everything and will live in the clouds!!! Go Blackberry, go, go, go. Go away - stereotypical decisions, wrong management for a dying company.
Does it work in China?
I hear people tell me that Blackberries don't work here, but I dislike the touch screen smartphones that only seem to be available now.
I have Samsung S3, which is slow and inaccurate for basic usage (messaging, QQ, Weichat), because you need the fingers of a four-year-old to type. Last qwerty I had was a Nokia E6, which was great for messaging.
Did some research on-line, and it seems there may be some issues with using some functions in China. Anyone know more?
Good Phone! Simply the best,if you are surfing the net and emails. No lags in the download.
The next Q10
Display: 5.0 inches IPS

BB fan..., 26 Feb 2014I luv BB very much. M using BB 9900
BB 9900 IS A Great Hand Held !!!
The sound system for this phone is great as well. Its not irritating like the other fones. Headset is good as well. It even has earplugs replacement. Plus, it has memory footprint for apps. So u'll be back from where you left.
Been using this for more than a month now and I dont have any plans on replacing it. It suits my lifestyle. :)
In our country the only disadvantage ive noticed is lack of casing but you can always purchase online. Ahaha..
Moi, 17 Mar 2014Which features doesn't work there? Where did you buy it?I bought it here in the phil , for the features the BlackBerry balance doesnt work. Its the feature where you separate ur personal and work life on ur BlackBerry q10, its only available for business customer. But thats no biggy actually for me. Everything is ok w/ the fone.
Dimi, 17 Mar 2014I have been considering the q10 for a while, the phone's perspective or image in the market is... moreSimply download the snap app. Then you'll get apk files for android apps and games. Install it then bham! U'r good to go.
Images are clear as well with this fone.
Moi, 17 Mar 2014Which features doesn't work there? Where did you buy it?I bought it in the phil. Features wise.. well almost all android apps including games can be downloaded. All you have to do is download snap. Then u'll get apk files for android apps. Then install directly. No convertion required.
I have been considering the q10 for a while, the phone's perspective or image in the market is not solid, but those who own it adore it. After knowing that you can download android apps, i am selling my iphone 5 for a serious phone. I am not looking for god damn game boy or ps pocket , i am lookong for solid phone, smooth with long battery life that can survive the day; and most importantly i wont have to type everything twice coz i can never get used to the touch typing.
