I love the Z10, best phone I have ever had. Better than old Iphone 4s a Samsung S3. Trouble is that needs in phone shops are anti Blackberry
the blackberry z10 is just amazing, give a while for the apps to come, unity's demo with the bluetooth controller looks amazing, i had a iphone 4s, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, Lumia 820... but the z10 is by far the best phone experience ive ever had, +1 for Blackberry, keep up the amazing work and support
dont buy this , waste of money. Nothing special in this phone and it hangs sometimes.
lacosanostra, 26 Mar 2013I bought me this phone on the basis of how crackberry was raving about it. Thus far I'm not im... moreThen go and exchange it. It's obviously a defect. Mine works like a dream.
Please how can i download the latest software for z10, my country is Nigeria. just got the z10 on 26th of this month, the phone is working fine but i need to upgrade please can some one give me a link to get the latest updates? Thanks Pals!!!
Am using my BIS sim on mine and is working from Nigeria, which country are you?
I have used the BlackBerry Z10 since the beginning of the month. I bought it despite reading that people say that other smart phones like the iPhone and Samsung are better. Even the guy at the counter when I went to buy it tried to convince me that the other phones are better. I had a good experience from my previous BlackBerry relative to other phones and decided to stay with the brand.
In the bottom line I am extremely happy with my Z10. The phone is firstly a communication tool The hub that they rave about is very convenient for both my work mail other mail and all the different contact points I have with a multitude of people. I have many contacts and need quick access to my communication channels. The gestures the phone use with its touch screen too a day or two to get use to... but once mastered it is a breeze to use. One criticism is some inconsistency of how applications open and close. The interface is intuitive enough but there is an inconsistency in how different apps behave when they need to be closed.
The keyboard with its advanced predictive typing is awesome but took several days of concerted effort to master. Sometimes the flipping action select another word which slows down the typing rather than increasing the speed. I can imagine it being especially difficult for people with thick fingers. However not having to type every word is cool and its suggestions for next words is often spot on. The flick requires finger dexterity that must be mastered before the phone come to its own right. Relative to other touch pad phones I had this one is a pleasure to use.
Its phone is not its primary feature. Getting to open the phone as a utility is sometimes difficult and it is best to keep the phone app open. Setting up quick dails are easy and convenient. Facebook, BBM and Whatsapp works like a charm. Unfortunately Whatsapp jumps up as a notification in the hub and is not as neatly synchronized. It was easy to sync my work e-mail with the phone but I had a problem synchronizing my contact data and calendar.
An annoying point of the phone is the position of the power cable. Since I often type left handed the power cable point of entry is too low and restricts typing on the screen. I would have preferred the cable input to be a bit higher.
The browser is fast and convenient. The reader that strips off all the unnecessary web components to render the main body text is excellent and make it easily readable is a bonus and makes it easy to scroll through websites. Facebook works perfectly and I can manage my groups, pages and personal site with ease.
The camera works well. It took me a bit of time to get used to how it zoom using two fingers but I like it that you can point the camera on what to focus. The delay photo that allows you to chose where you want the final focus works well. My success rate taking pictures of children and animals more than tripled. The video camera works well.
Not being Amarican or British the voice control is not really giving me any benefit. It does not understand my pronunciation when I dictate and it does not have a facility to learn to know my voice.
The video is clear and the sound is clear. The speakerphone of the camera works well while I am traveling in my car. I do not need to use any additional equipment to use the phone in my car.
I have not seen any games that excite me and the Blackberry world might have million of apps but there are few that truly made me excited. I love the Kindle reader app that allows me to buy kindle e-books and read it with my Z10. The Kindle reader works well and I can read all content easily. The standard pdf reader that comes with the Z10 is pathetic. It does not give the text in a nice column view and I had to download a better app. I am not a big game player so the gaming did not really put me off the Z10. My favorite game is Age of Legends and I was disappointed that the game is not yet available on the Z10.
Overall I am happy. The Blackberry Z10 delivered what I needed and made my smart phone experience much better and improved my productivity as a business man. I will buy the Blackberry Z10 again if I am given the choice.
LOU-QTR, 28 Mar 2013I'm quite confuse of choosing which phone to purchase. Choices are Z10, Lumia and iPhone 5)
I... moresince you already own an iphone 4s, i really think that upgrading from a 4s to a 5 will be a waste of money, so skip iphone 5.
if you wanna go for a windows phone you should go for the lumia 920. its a really good device but its a new OS and not many apps are available for download (not that there are millions of apps for the z10 but still, the apps on windows store are far behind IOS and android).
so my advice would be to go for a z10 but be careful. it might not turn out to be the way you expected it to be.
i had bad experiences with this phone and immediately sold it back, but who knows , my particular unit might have had some issues..
its worth giving a shot.
BB10 OS is good. it focuses around swipe gestures without the hastles of hardware keys.
now its up to your personal preference my friend
no bullshit whatsoever and an unbiased opinion. ;-)
