casssie, 29 Jun 2013i here there some wrong with the z10 bbm how true is that?Hi Casssie,
Firstly I want to let you know that nothing is wrong with the mobile rather its a very beautiful phone working perfectly without hanging with a good battery life and very advance operating system.
The battery life is good if you are not using Wifi and using your mobile purely on Mobile Network. Using wifi it do drains your battery in a day, as I feel the mobiles which I used earlier and hardly used to connect or drop signal on in low wifi n/w whereas it connects pretty good and stays stable.
Now about the hanging problem I never encountered a single hang on my mobile till now. Reason is, I am using OS 10.1(updated). May be people are using OS 10.0 or may be some applications which are not compatible makes the mobile unresponsive. But I can assure you in OS there is no flaw.
About the Operating System its very fast(only booting time is slow, when you restart it) and have pretty nice features. Specially the ones which are related to messaging, like when I interact on WhatsApp or BBM I feel very comfortable and don't need to type whole words. Lot of customisation is provided to the user but I must say not like Android and it has its own advantage.
About the applications in BlackberryWorld you can check their site and find lot of applications are available, but still Shazam and Instagram is missing which is going to come eventually for sure but alternate applications are available like SoundHound etc... for which you don't feel disheartened. Moreover after porting it is able to run Android Applications too.
About the price, yes I admit that BB guys put the price high for their phone which should be low by 100$.
Finally, I would like to let you know that I am into Android Development and preferred it over Android devices. Our fellow developers made the comparison of same Application with same h/w specification on Z10 and Android Device and found interaction and responsiveness in BB Z10 is pretty fast.
Also, I am pretty sure its way better than Windows Mobile OS and would like to place it on the third place after Android and Iphone, since still its in improvement phase.
Hope this info helps others too.
Its a great phone for the people who loves texting and not a mobile gamer. You cannot find as many apps as ios or Android but still i love it for its looks and the BB 10.
Amazing Phone amazing apps.I am very much impressed by Blackberry z10.Value for money better than Android.Go for it Guys.
casssie, 29 Jun 2013i here there some wrong with the z10 bbm how true is that?Yes! There everything is wrong with z10. It is blackberry.
never go for it otherwise you will regret. battery very poor. os is not so good.app market is top bad.Stick with old bb but not this one.
Great phone, love it! No big name apps, so what. I still can sideload Flipboard, Instagram, Shazam, Line, etc into this phone. No regret getting it
I went to AT&T and got the iPhone 5, decided to sell it, and get the BlackBerry z10. I was very schetpical about purchasing the phone. I got to say I am very impressed by the z10, the Dual core processor runs every app very smoothly, not to mention it does have a full multitasking.
I am very impressed by the APP selection, it has the availability to run Android Applications as well, which is very convenient, basically two app world's in on platform.
The phone camera functionality is very well, on par with the iPhone 5. The future OS 10.1 is adding HDR, and 360 photos.
I love the keyboard on this device, it have very smooth typing, I find it very accurate, and helpful in many ways, the predictive text works like a dream.
I would recommend this phone go anyone.
After 2minutes after you finished charging the phone,the battery drains to 0% but the phone stays alive for maybe around 12 hours.I'm running 10.1
Anyone who shares the same problem or has some advice?
It's my day 4 with the BlackBerry Z10, I love it.
I'm not having issues with crashing or hangs.
The only complaint that I have which I am surprised no one else mentioned is that in sms, BBM or even on what's App u can't enter a "New Line"
You can only do it in the browser or emails.
They could easily make submit or new line alternate.
E.g. I'd u want new line,
Press shift+enter or shift+space
ThE phone is AMAZING!!! you cant get such an user friendly phone....android starts lagging after sometime and appples browsers awful........BUT THIS PHONE ROX IN EVERY WAY!!!!!AMAZING CAMERA TOO>>>>>>>MMUST BUY
Hi guys :)) How do I update the phone to 10.1.. I have got the international version and it tells I do not have any new updates when i connect to BB link ... please let me know if anyone has got their international version to update in US
Sher41, 24 Jun 2013I am not impressed with the Z10, it freezes all the time! I have to pull the battery and resta... moreJust watch out which app you download. Some apps are not properly designed and this is killing the memory of the phone. Big reason why he phones freezes up. Past experiences tought me to only download app which has been rated by at least 20+ people.
Exccelent Phone. Easy to understand. User friendly. Old data easily transfered via BlackBerry link. The delvelopers should have thought about night time as volume and app volume must be set induvidualy not like older BB's, where you just choose between diff settings of volume. Yes you can choose a diff option but when chosen the volume stays the same if not set induvidualy.
HK, 25 Jun 2013Does z10 come in red??seriously ? you really need to ask if it comes in red when its a blackberry ?
dude, the colors available are already there ... you just need to read ..
JayJ74, 24 Jun 2013This phone is amazing, ive had it since launch and it has never frozen, not even glitched. Wit... moreIt is a great phone. The screen is easy to read in bright sunlight. I also haven't had any problems with the OS.
The speakerphone and the search capabilities are great. Glad Blackberry remembered their business users.
