z10 new stock comeing or not'coming pl conform blackberry stores.
Im very impressed with my new Z10, so fast, so efficient to use, i dont really like gesture controls but the gestures are just simple and works MUCH better than it ever did when i had Nokia N9.
My last high end phone was Xperia Z, in the browser i can sometimes feel that this Z10 is not quite as powerful as the Sony but absolutely no slug either, zooming and scrolling is a very pleasant experience, and i credit much of that to the 2GB RAM.
Unfortunately, the pixel density at 355 is a noticeable downgrade from the 441 PPI on the Xperia Z for example when reading small fonts on desktop version websites without zooming in, the clarity is good but no match for the Full HD phones. When dealing with photos and normal sized text its hard to tell the difference though, Z10 has a truly great display.
Started download of 10.2 upgrade now, the best will be better. I doubt i ever go back to Android. Hope more people will realize how good BB10 is so BB will not have to sell off their handset business.
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2014Is mapmyindia is working on yours phone?No idea since im in Manila Philippines.

You do not required BIS any more, you can use BBM, email and other social apps etc on your internet plan. which can 2G or 3G. (Like other andriod and IOS phone works)
no more BIS plan required for blackberry 10 phones
jack, 26 Mar 2014does it take 3 hours to charge z10 ?if you use a high amp output (1.2 A+) charger the phone wil charge from 0% to full within 2 hours when left idle (ie not running any apps and screen off)
Anand, 27 Mar 2014Hi, Just want to know how to sideload android apps on z10. Heard that 'SNAP' is the best way.... moredownload an app for your windows pc called "sachesi" and you can sideload BAR files. the BAR file you need is called SNAP or mobile1. both BAR files will give you access to gooogleplay store as if your phone was a native android phone.
AnonD-15423, 27 Mar 2014Would you please tell me about the battery backup....coz 1800 mAmp seems pretty low-par when u... morereally depends on your reception.
blackberry has always been pro-reception for cellphone signals. so if you are in a poor reception area, the radio will get power boost to maintain cell connection. this will be the main cause of drain for most people if they have poor access to radio towers.
as for latest 10.2.1.2102 update on phone, BB has optimised the OS code to be very light weight and for me and usage (7 am till 10 pm) i am usually left with 45% left on the battery life. for those with heavier usage expect to charge around after 8 hours of normal smart phone usage (hub syncing, calls messaging, 30 mins of gaming, web browsing). As usual, your mileage will vary because not everyone uses smartphone the same way. for heaavier users, at least you can buy spare battery and replace when you need it or buy a high amperage fast charger to keep your battery juiced.
Nele21, 27 Mar 2014How do we sideload android apps in RSA on the Z10 I wanna get this phone before the end of next weekgoogle a sideloading app for your pc called "sachesi." most likely it will bring you to the crackkberry website forum. install the app and then go find a BAR file called "snap." snap will sync to your google account and allow you access to download from the googleplay store. Not all apps will work, namely the ones that integrate into the google play store. But for all other apps it will work as if you are running an android phone.
