edlyn, 01 Apr 2014I love this fone! I just wish some Android apps can be used like Nimbuzz & Viber & Ube... moreYes BB has great service in Ph. The problem is that Q10 cost 19,990, thats really too much when Z10 cost only 12,990.
I think 15k would have been the right price for Q10, at 20k people tend to go for the OS7 qwerty devices that cost only half. BB need to sell more BB10 OS phones and the Q5 is not the phone to convince people to switch from OS7.
Also, it seems that lots of OS7 users arent aware that BB10 OS supports Android apps, and some who are not familiar with BB think that the new ones run Android OS lol.
What a disappointment.... I had the 9900, the 9800, the one before that and the one before that.... The reason RIM is going down the toilet is simple, the product is getting worse.... This phone has some good ideas, but it needs the track pad, and dial and hangup buttons. The phone firmware is flaky! it doesnt start properly after being turned off, needing to be rebooted from a reboot is not ideal! The connection with Link software on MAC is appalling , sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. The keyboard is the best thing about this phone, but it isnt enough to make anyone want it! And trust me, thats saying something because I hate iphone and samsung touch screens..... I should have reaslised that I could buy a replacement 9900 for the same price as they are selling the Q10! Says it all really! DONT BUY THIS.... RIM deserves to be punished...... sadly.
I love this fone! I just wish some Android apps can be used like Nimbuzz & Viber & Ubersocial. Skype works very well. Speaker fone capability is awesome. Recording audio & video are great. Battery is average. Don't use u'r 3G/4G if u want long lasting battery lol. My BBQ10 never lags bec of 2GB RAM. After sales service in Makati is very good.
I have a Blackberry Bold 9900 touch and thinking of upgrading to Q10. Any advice whether this is advisable and how does the Q10 compare with the older Bold 9900 touch

ThanujaW, 22 Mar 2014Hello every one... i am thinking of getting a Q10... can some one advice me on the experience.... moreIf you are fond of the QWERTY phone and you don't mind the smaller screen. You won't regret getting a Q10. BB OS10 is 10times better than any previous BBOS including OS 7.1. The Browser is one of the fastest of all phones. the interface is natural and intuitive. I especially love the slide to the right to peek at the notifications menu. The back arrow to get back to the home screen on apps and the main menu and the time shift camera. The price is a little high but it's the right price for what you are getting.
the lack of having an option to turn off the auto-brightness was a deal breaker for me. It automatically dims when in low light to the point that the display becomes hard to read and looks really washed out made me sell it after a couple of days. If only the display had IPS with an option to turn off auto brightness.
qt, 21 Mar 2014Ive downloaded viber thru snap.. and it works fine.Please what is snap and how can I download the viber.
AnonD-243518, 23 Mar 2014hy guys how much time bb q10 is taking to fully charge from 5% to 100%?
I dont know the answer to your question but i want to point out that you should never let your battery run down to 5%, this is very bad for li-ion and li-po batteries. Always charge long before your battery is empty, try to charge already at 40%. The battery is best off if as much time as possible is spent at between 40 and 60%.
Dont always charge full, try to stop before it reaches 80%, since thats the threshold where charging changes from constant current to "kind of constant voltage". Anything above 80% is squeezing and destroys the battery over time. If you charge at 40% and dont go above 80 your battery will have 20 times longer lifetime before it need replacement. Use a power bank instead of spare battery, and never "cycle" a lithium battery (drain to zero and charge to 100 is the worst you can do, that is only for Nickel based batteries of 1990ies cellphones)
Display: 5.0 inches IPS
Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 805
Pin: 3200 mAh
Infrared port: Yes
FM radio: Yes
hy guys how much time bb q10 is taking to fully charge from 5% to 100%?
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?
