Hello fellow tech enthusiasts,
I recently received a blackberry z10 from a friend of mine and I decided to use it as my daily driver.I once owned a blackberry 9800 in 2012 then I changed to Nokia then changed to a Samsung galaxy in August of 2013.I do say I lost hope in RIM,but after having used the z10 for about a week now I have to say this is one impressive phone.It is a big stepup from the previous 9900 flagship and I have to say using it has been a pleasure.I can admit their are reasons to justify Android,iOS and even windows phone to be better than Blackberry z10/q10/q5/z15.But from what I believe, this phone has the most potetial between windows phone and iOS.If only it had a lot of apps in the appworld I believe we would see this phone all over.Despite the lack of lacks I have personally enjoyed this phone and its gorgeous display and it Os appearance.-For me it just works and is very pretty.I dont blame RIM for the poor sales but I actually blame the people for not developing the best apps and people for not buying it and experience this device.Rather the people are drowned in a sea of galaxies like I used to.I can admit the iphone in this case is a lovely phone and making me decide between the iphone 5s and the z10 would be the same as asking me which lake I would rather cut off, my left or right.
To conclude on things,I can say RIM still got it,but its previous errors of its software is still giving me that negative impression.Otherwise this is a very good phone and I would say im happy to be a blackberry user.

If ur device is 10.2.0 or lower, u have to search and download .apk file and convert to .bar file( use a tool name: blackberry sideloading), then install it.

ken, 05 Jan 2014I am planing to exchange my Samsung s3 with blackberry z10.. could you pls suggest me whether ... moreIt depends on what you use your phone for. If you want apps better keep your S3. Blackberry OS is lag free than andriod, or that is what i felt after using it for 3 weeks. I installed the leaked 10.2.1.1055 and it can direclty install andriod apps from third party app store like Snap. some times there are compatability issues when you launch those apps, may be because the OS is leaked one and not official yet. But still i like the BB10 OS and over all performance of Z10.
