The efficiency of KitKat is just a spoof, another Google scam, the "runs well on 512MB" is a lie. KitKat was made specifically to force more people into using Googles services and to sell more ads, not to give people great performance on old phones with newest Android version.
kevinka, 21 May 2014Is there any real kind of unsolved lagging happened in android??
I don't think so. Because ... moreThe thing about lag and Android (especially since 4.x) is that most of the same people who complain about the lag are just too dumb to be using Android smartphones.
You just can't keep loading memory resident app after memory resident app on a phone and expect it to run fast indefinitely. Computers don't work that way and I have demonstrated this with various Android and Apple flagship devices made in the past 2 years.
What I've seen is that most of my friends who have Android phones who complain about it running slow know nothing about holding down on the HOME or APPS softbutton until the background running apps show up on the homescreen so they can be swiped away and closed.
In other words, these people don't RTFM. As Android becomes more and more efficient (Kit Kat is the most efficient Android OS to date - quite an accomplishment given all the additional features in the OS) and with the upcoming ART runtime it will only continue to become even better at resource management...
In my opinion all the other OS' are playing catch up with BOS 10.x in terms of performance, functionality and security based upon my experience and hand on use of Android, ios and WP 8.x phones in the past 18 months.

If these games were native Built for BlackBerry they would perform 5x better, just as well as on iPhone or iPad, but being Android and running on the Java/Dalvik virtual machine they can never perform perfectly.
We cant expect stuff that runs poorly on Android to run perfectly on BB10, and most stuff except the simplest most basic apps runs poorly on Android.

Android and iOS are so boring right now. They are not cool anymore nothing is new. Try this BlackBerry 10 OS it has all new amazing features especially on their OS version 10.2.1 you can now Run Android Apps and dont worry there are available 3rd Party Apps for Instagram (Download 3rd Party App Igrann), Vine (WHine), Snapchat(Snap2Chat etc. that run amazingly smooth. BlackBerry 10 dont need of Quadcores/OCtacores because the OS itself is pretty fast and smooth. But this BlackBerry Z3 is Dualcore so that only 4 Activeframes/ Open Apps are running unlike the BlackBerry Z10, Q10, Z30, Q5 they have Dualcore higher something thats why they run 8 open apps in your phone. Also BlackBerry 10 OS is the most Secured OS yet here on this planet and have the Best Popular Secured Messaging App BBM. This is really a good phone espceially when it comes to price. I recommend it. Hopefully BlackBerry launch this Awesome phone in global market and I want the color White BlackBerry Z3 and Im planning to give all my family members a BlackBerry Z3. Thank you!
BB Z3 is a beautiful piece which is coming . 98% of all android and ios app run smoothly on this bb 10.2.1 os . This is the only os which can gather everything in a plate . Just thake this and have this . It will be so cool for us
anyway, BB10 is a good OS, but sorry to say, HD games and most "huge-memory" apps of ANDROID likely to be not able installed on BB10, right? are you choosing a "FADED BLUR OperatingSystem" of *ehm*?
THINK AGAIN :v

I don't think so. Because I used Galaxy S3 4.3 and runs everything SMOOTHER than an IPHONE 4S in a SAME RANGE of PRICE! even playing a pop out video and uploading on facebook at the same time!!
and what about theirs? iOS opened Photos and uploading with a VISIBLE LAG, so REAL!
omekaac , 21 May 2014You are simply hilarious! that's all I can say to you. Thanks. Sorry, could not hold back. It is one thing to express ones opinion about the phone atleast seeing it in person ( Like " Heck, I don't like the rectangular shape, should be a pentagon..!"). But this kind of stupid comments phenomenally pisses me off. Anyways, any Indonesian who bought a Z3 would like to share how it fares?
