It is very nice phone. I have always had a hardware keyboard and this is one of the best and unfortunately one of the last phones with qwerty keyboard. The screen is smooth, it has very nice colors and size is big enough for a web browsing. To press keys takes some more effort, but still, keyboard is very comfortable. Camera is nice, but photos looks nice only on the device screen. Once you copy them to your PC, you can see that pictures are not so good. Batery life is good, I can work all day without any doubts, permanently connected to the internet via WIFI or 4G internet. Applications run smoothly, the phone is pretty fast. The only problem I am facing is that after the update to BB 10.3 OS is search engine much slower comparing to the BB 10.2 OS. Another negative thing is that battery cover is very easy to remove, so I have to be careful when I take my phone out from the pocket. The phone used to reboot randomly. Since I put a piece of paper under the battery, this problem seem to be solved. I also had a problem with my network connection, my phone was switching between standard mode and "emergency calls only". This problem was caused by my provider in roaming services abroad.
bkcedi, 30 Oct 2016how can i know,i'm buying original q10,fake out there ,any tips to look out for First of all BlackBerry is not iPhone and / or Samsung is to have some $100 mediocre chinese clones.
The simplest method is to access BlackBerry World (if you have a BlackBerry account) and install one of the applications out there. If everything goes nice and smooth, that device is a genuine BlackBerry.

You can install Android apps on a BlackBerry 10 device this way:
1. Using Amazon AppStore http://blogs.blackberry.com/2014/06/amazon-appstore/ already installed by default on BB10 OS.
2. Download the .APK file form any other trusted source and install it. Make sure you device is set to accept the installation of apps from unknown sources.
