Don't buy this BlackBerry model. These units are just test models of BlackBerry Z10. They just replace the casing and all of it's parts came from used and faulty BlackBerry Z10, Q5 and Q10. Think of this, why do they only sell this phones primarily in Indonesia? Why not release it first in UK or US? There's something wrong about these models.
Busty, 07 Apr 2014Yes...but nobody really cares. Yeah, people are more concerned with having an obsession over the latest and greatest, and bigger numbers for hardware specs - than a more accurate measurement of phone performance.
This has been happening for quite a while before smartphones took off, however.
Anonymous , 06 Apr 2014BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 now support Android apps I'm assuming you didn't type that on a BlackBerry. What kind of crap device are you typing on to make so many mistakes?
BlackBerry OS 10 is the most advanced smartphone operating system in existence. It supports true multitasking, is based on QNX operating system, the only current operating system approved for DOD use without any additional add-ons. Apps are compiled in pure C++ with Qt and do not have to run through a hypervisor. Oh yeah, it runs Android apps better than Android itself (since it can do true multitasking and sandbox each Android app) and doesn't have the lag.
Recently, Apple announced that they will also use BlackBerry's QNX as the basis for their car infotainment systems. QNX is already used in medical devices and nuclear reactors. Question for you Android fanboys: if Android is so superior, would you trust the core of Android's OS to save your life, or the life of someone you love?
zakkk, 07 Apr 2014yeah i agree BB lacks in publicity, this is where they are falling behind. i use a BB Z10 and ... moreI just bought a HTC one for personal use after I returned my company`s Q10 (unfortunetly). I must admit, nothnig is better for texting that the qwerty phisical keyboard of Q10. NOTHING. Looking fw to buying BB in the future. I`m really not so much into all these blings that Android offers, especially since it uses batery like crazy.
csg, 06 Apr 2014I do agree with you. BlackBerry 10 is a great OS, its fluidity currently I dare to say no othe... moreyeah i agree BB lacks in publicity, this is where they are falling behind. i use a BB Z10 and i know how better and different it is
Mario gumez, 06 Apr 2014Epic fail ..
Why for someone would by BlackBerry Z3 instead of Moto G?Whats great about Moto G? This has 8GB storage also, just expandable, and it has a much smoother OS, higher performance, and it has larger display which is what people in Asia want these days, 4.5 inch isnt very popular.
IF only you tried a BB10 phone you would understand, Android is for many people a reason to NOT buy a phone. Im so tired of people who keep on sayingthat you can make android as you like it, like that is the be-all-end-all feature, customizing? I never bothered to change much on any of Android phones, why would i? Widgets? Yeah i always remove most of them whenever i buy a new Android phone. I can change the lockscreen and wallpaper also in BB10, i dont have to open apps to view them, just by looking at the multitasking screen can i see the updated weather in the weather app thumbnail.
Yes thats right, BB10 has live multitasking screen, try to customize that on your Moto G? You simply do not understand because you do not know what BB10 is all about. You probably dont even know that most Android apps will run just as good or better on BB10 than on Android itself? Or that we have a fully Flash enabled browser that runs supersmooth on mediocre dual core chipsets?
If you think BB10 is some kind of inferior system then you will be very disappointed if you try it out, its the best OS out there.
Not the most popular i know, but hey, Justin Bieber is more popular and has more youtube hits than AC/DC, so Bieber must be better? No way!
Mario gumez, 06 Apr 2014Epic fail .. Why for someone would by BlackBerry Z3 instead of Moto G?Because of the BB10 OS, I'd imagine.
I wonder what the price of the 9900 re-run will be.
Q1 2015 just seems so long to wait for the Q20.
Best smartphone OS period.
Now they are being made by Foxconn and not by Canadians, it should be competitive price wise.
James, 06 Apr 2014I agree they should have flogged the hell out of this in Indonesia which is one of the worlds ... moreMalaysian market may be small nor fickles as you said but why Blackberry kept coming & pushing their luck there? Simple..their SPENDING POWER.That's why..
For examples, apple is making huge profits in Malaysia by selling their expensive products there, why?? They trusted the brands, delivered what they want & the customer service also very good, so yup there goes their very hard earned money, straight to Apple.
Shame to BB, may be they are too late already..
BlackBerry 10 is very fast multitasking Web browser fast great job bb 10
I'll buy one, just to support the company. Esp. If it's BB 10, all the better.
