My question, if BlackBerry 10 enables user instal apk, why did populer app like Opera Mini inside Amazon Appstore I installed in my Z10 couldn't be used, force closed? I compared with Opera Mini 7.6 apk I downloaded from other web, that Opera Mini apk works fine. Oh, fine, it is different version. I try another app, it was Zenonia 4, the result, same with Opera Mini from Amazon appstore, it force closed too. So I say the apps I tried in Amazon appstore were useless. Next time I am going to try the third app, if the third I plan to install and see it works properly or not and the result is the same with Opera Mini and Zenonia 4, well I donkt want to trust Amazon appstore again in BlackBerry 10. For rumour about BlackBerry Venice, looks like BlackBerry hard to get user buy their products and use them. Developer I think tend to choose more popular smartphones that the most people use, in this case, Android. The apps up to date and a lot of apps added.

But hey guys the Amazon App which come with the new OS is a great booster for Blackberry 10 handsets. There is lots of applications in this kennel I do not understand why Blackberry conzumers are making so much noise. The thing is we cannot just thank Blackberry RIM when they have done so well for their conzumers. Presently my Z10 feels super after it has been upgraded to OS 10.3 It is seriously a bad experience that Blackberry seems to have finally ran out of ideas. I see this with the new Blackberry Venice which is operated by Android. Disappointed very disappointed
Anonymous, 05 Jul 2015Simply don't say, BBM can't compete with android. Android is a open source OS. But blackberry ... moreYes, Android and BlackBerry are different. If this is not because of lose from Android, why from year to year since Android become populer, people prefer Android and iPhone? And now Windows Phone overcome BlackBerry in number of sales. I use Z10 because I like it, I like its design, its virtual keypad, its system, but I dislike their Amazon Appstore and some apps in BlackBerry World. Say like Opera Mini, and other apps.
vikas, 04 Jul 2015I am using z10 since last year march. it is working very well. upgraded to 10.3 it is awesome.... moreBanking apps I never try till now in Z10, since these banking apps required me to register that can charge for SMs sending, I chose internet banking instead mobilr banking. If you found error on these apps, nothing we can do, the developer themselves we complaint will give disappoint resut, although they replied our messages.
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2015is 10.3.2.680 stable to load??Yes it is. Make sure you load OS with autoloader that designed for your device's model. My BlackBerry Z10 is STL100-4, I had done several times update OS using autoloader. From OS 10.2 to OS 10.3.0, to 10.3.1.1779 than to OS 10.3.2.840, downgrade to 10.3.2.798 downgrade to 10.3.2.680, work fine. After you update to OS 10.3.2 you can only go back to 10.3.2.680, can't to OS 10.3.1 or below it.
Simply don't say, BBM can't compete with android. Android is a open source OS. But blackberry or Mac is are not. It have some reputation. A better may earn 1000 rs per day, but tailor shop owner earning 500 per will u say he can't compete with better? Obviously no....

sanju , 29 Jun 2015How is the battery backup? If money is not important get z30...
I have been using Z10 since May 2015, here is my reviews:
1. Price is down, cheap, maybe because of can't compete with Android
2. Typing is good, I like the keypad
3. There is BlackBerry Hub that integrate notification, WhatsApp, Facebook, Yahoo! Messnger, etc
4. Secure system, OS 10.3.2 provide BlackBerry protection
5. Till now Z10 can be upgraded to OS 10.3.2 using autoloader
6. It can install apk Android
7. Very easy to downgrade or update OS using autoloader
1. Battery is only 1.800 mAh
2. BlackBerry World can't compete with iPhone Appstore and Google Play Store in number of apps. The apps offer from BlackBerry World like WeChat, no stickers. Facebook can't accept people who join group
3. BlackBerry Maps is poor, can't compete with Google Maps and HERE Maps
3. Amazon appstore provide more apps by the apps I had tried make disappoint. First, Opera Mini, I installed once, then exit, open it again, it keep force closed. Second, Zenonia 4, I installed it, then open it, it keep force closed. I thought, " What for this preinstalled apps if the apps offer just give users angry because of incompatible (force closed)"?
4. My Z10 STL100-4 show slowing in launch a call. When dial a phone, it took 5 seconds or more to launch the call app.
