I bought BB Z10 2 months ago. I have big expectation, since I've been using BB for 5 years. I have great experience with my bold 9000 and onyx 2. Sadly, Z10 can not continue it predecessor success.
The learning curve of using OS10 is faster than I thought. But the stability is big issue here.
I've return my Z10 after using it for 2 days only, since the battery is overheat. when I returned it to my carrier in Indonesia, I've met 3 users also returning their device with similar issue.
My carrier give me a new Z10 to solve this issue. Then lightning has strike twice, after upgraded to OS 10.1 the phone is crashing. The phone keep shutting down it self in many times. The battery life is below BB statement, it only lasting for 4 hours with my normal usage.
Well after 2 months struggling, I sold my BBZ10.
Emailing also not fast as previous BB system, I found that BB now in the same level with android and iOs in term of email experience.
Keyboard system is not special as BB bragging, you have to use your 2 hand together for typing. Well they are just ok in my opinion.
The HUB idea is good, but in the end you have to check one by one each email, bbm, and SMS. 3rd party application such as Whatsapp is not integrated in the HUB. I found the "peek" marketing gimmick is nothing special in improving my daily routine with smartphone.
Entertainment also below standard of other smartphone. Z10 have crisp speaker but BB now starting to follow iTunes concept but without the supporting ecosystem. Gaming is way less develop compare to iOS and Android.
If you want an HDMI feature this phone provide you the port
BBM (yeah now it will be available for android and iOS user)
Not stable OS
Not many 3rd party application
Save your money and better investing in other reliable device.
Unless you are a BB die harder, and patiently waiting everything will be just fine by the time. So good bye BB.
( I'm using z10, SG III, and IPhone 5 for making my review here)

Yes,the BlackBerry Z10 has WhatsApp. It's native so incoming messages takes advantage of BlackBerry Hub. The same goes for BBM.
