AnonD-243518, 04 Apr 2014Hy guys how much time bb Z10 is taking to fully charge from 5% to 100%? Read my long post further down on this page on why you should not let your battery drop to 5% before charging and why you should avoid charging full. I can repeat though, with the Z10 charger it takes almost 25 minutes to charge 20%, but this varies with how full or empty the battery is, it takes longer to charge from 80 to 100% than from 40 to 60%, another proof that going above 80% charge is forceful charging that damages the battery.

Hello friends, just wanna ask whether Wifi direct or flash transfer is expected to come in Z10 ?? As it has now become too basic & essential feature in any smartphone. & Z10 has such specs which are edge to edge with any other high end smartphone out there. So, is Wifi direct or flash transfer coming to Z10 or is there any app available for Z10 which allows huge file transfer to any other phone except Bluetooth?? Thanks
Its the 4th day of my z10 and my love for the device is increasing everyday. Upgraded to 10.2.1 and also loaded android apps through amazon store and they work just perfect. Though it take time to start the android app but once up it runs smoothly on z10. Tried Temple run 2 and sonic dash and also whatsapp.. yes now you can use whatsappp on z10.
Just like to share something.. it's been 3 days with BlackBerry Z 10 now..
What a phone I just love it..
All of my friends whoever sees this barely wanna buy this
101% satisfied with this product..
@@atul : it's asking for OS update to 10.2.1 as my current version is 10.2.0.. and it also says we have update to 10.3.1 from yesterday I'm getting that notification
BlackBerry 10 is the best device i have use, is easy to manipulate,and have the best features,that you might think of.....
Hey guys i want to know that the manifacturer warranty of this product is 1 year but it us already manufactured in june 2013, so does that mean it will expire in june 2014 and the main point is i bought it from flipkart few days back, so does its warranty counts from the day of manufacture or when i bought it. Aslo there is not any warranty provided, if i opt to take to the service centre what should i tell them about my purchase?
I am really in a mess. Help me out please.
Thanx is advance.
After downloading 1mobileapp, do we get a flow of unwanted notifications jn ghe BlackBerry hub? Need your reply soon brothers?
Is there any fault in downloading 1mobile?
Thanx in advance :)
rahul, 03 Apr 2014I have purchased new bb z 10. Since bb maps dont work here in india,tried installing the usual... moreGoogle Maps works on it. What doesn't work is you can't login.
Get the older version from net(Google which works best) and you are good to go with it. Even voice navigation and offline map works.
If you want alternative, download Mireo Don't Panic and download specific country maps and they are very good for navigation purposes too.
Those who want to check their chipset type can install BG shell from BB World and type "uname -a", if its an ST100-1 the name OMAP4470 should show up somewhere in there. GPU is PowerVR SGX 544.
richard, 03 Apr 2014we have just had an NZD$600 price reduction on these phones, permanently, (were NZD$899 now NZD$299By the way, are those the LTE enabled Z10? Mine is the ST100-1, non LTE, it has a TI OMAP chipset unlike the Qualcomm in the LTE version. I think BB should have been clear on this, and even here on GSMArene the specs doesnt tell us that there are different chipsets, it does for the Q10 though.
Strange actually that they sell the non-lte versions here, Samsung and Sony and so on sells mostly LTE versions since LTE been around here for quite some time (very limited coverage though, up until now only in the capital region).
Actually i like the 3G version except for the slower chipset (still fast though) since the LTE version does not support 1900 MHz 3G/HSDPA, which is in use on the two biggest carrier networks here. Also there is no LTE coverage where i am 99% of the time anyway and HSDPA is not that much slower and LTE cost more to use.
Some battery advice, for phones in general.. As we know, Li-ion batteries degrade fast, after only 300 charge/discharge cycles they will have less than 80% of its original capacity left but if you know what is causing this degradation you can do some simple steps to avoid it and make it last 6,000 cycles before it has lost 20%.
The main strain on li-ion batteries come from being charged full and being fully discharged. Now its hard for lots of people to not charge the battery full so the easiest way to make your battery have a long life is to always charge before its empty, already at 40% you should charge. One could also set a timer to tell you when to stop charging, the Z10 charger takes almost 25 minutes to charge 20%, so if your battery is at 40% and you want to charge it to 80% you can set the timer to 45 to 50 minutes. 80 is already a high charge and you should not go above that, its the point where the charging stops using constant current and starts to raise the voltage, for Z10 that voltage is high, 4.35 volts. The charge voltage increase at around 80% is also why some iPhone cases with built in power bank stops charging at 80%.
If you want to be more practical and continue to charge the phone full, just dont let it go much below 40%, that alone will substantially help the battery's life span, thats the easy part. A cheap power bank is very helpful, just a small top up now and then to avoid the worst damage.
Those who carry spare batteries, if its not being used often you should not leave it in the wallet/bag with full charge, batteries being stored should be only 50-60% charged, you could probably go up to 80 without serious damage though.
