Even better than I was expecting.Posted .
I was looking to get the Z10 after having used the BB PlayBook. I really liked the idea that I could side-load Android apps for many apps not already available in the BB World App Store. After receiving my phone, I found it was much snappier in responding to gestures than the BB PlayBook (PB) and the UI was even more finished than the PB as well. I found everything except for two apps I wanted in BB World. As it turns out the one app maker is filing for bankruptcy and the other claims to have a version for the Z10 coming soon. Since Android developers don't need to do very much to get their apps on the Z10, I found many apps that are common on the Android platform in BB World as well - many more than I had expected. I have used Android and iOS devices in addition to previous BB products. I can say I enjoy the UI on the Z10 better than any of the others. The gestures seemed pretty intuitive to me, but I am probably biased by my use of the PB. The keyboard is very amazing too. I love the "flick the word" interface for selecting the suggested word. It seems to learn pretty quickly as well. I will say that I like this interface better than the appear above the keyboard list that Android does. I also feel it works significantly better than the "auto-correct" of iOS. In the negative department, I am a bit disappointed in the amount of data that the Z10 uses, but I know that is because it is more like its Android and iOS peers that talk directly to your email providers' servers when it is not connected to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (which the average user probably isn't going to have, unless your company runs one). The data usage seems on par with that of my friends' Android devices (who have similar usage patterns to mine), but it is something I hadn't thought about when purchasing the Z10. However, the extra data isn't a real factor for me and again it is on par with the other devices. There really are only two other negatives, the battery life and the camera is a bit dark. The battery is great as long as you have good signal. From what I can tell (and from using the app BatteryGuru), if you don't have consistent cell signal, the battery is not going to last very long. It seems to be worse than my previous BB phones in that regard, but on par with a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (which is what my friends have). There also seems to be worse battery life (even with good signal) if you don't have WiFi and you are doing lots of web browsing. Phone calls amazingly don't seem to have as much impact on the battery as the data usage does. As for the camera, the pictures come out a bit dark. I'm quite OK with this as I usually don't use my phone for serious photography (I have a DSLR for that) and it is nothing a bit of post-processing can't fix (unless it is really dark in the room you are taking the picture and you don't use flash). Overall, I'm very glad I bought the Z10. I have read many reviews about how people are unhappy with how BB has changed their phones, but I am pleased - they are now up-to-date with the times and I dare say better with the new UI. Many of the other complaints I've read sound like issues similar to ones I know my friends with Android and iOS devices have run into.I would recommend this to a friend

A solid product from a fragile companyPosted .
BlackBerry (formerly RIM) has not had it very good these past few years. We’ve watched as the once dominant cell phone maker saw its hallmark products disappear into relative obscurity as the mobile market rapidly changed, leading the Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android operating system to the top. The company’s last-ditch effort to save itself from its own lack of foresight, risk-taking, and product development, is a product that proves the new leadership of BlackBerry is willing to take risks, is willing to develop new technologies, and is willing to look to the future. That product is the BlackBerry Z10. Out of the box, the Z10 looks fantastic. It is smaller than my Nokia Lumia 920 by a longshot, but has a more professional appeal about it than the latter. Its design is slick, but also definitely plasticky, with a somewhat rubberized backing that has the BlackBerry logo stamped in on it in shiny silver. At first glance it almost looks like iPhone, but it can’t trump the solid gorilla glass and aluminum body that the iPhone features, and instead submits to a somewhat less durable build. This is not necessarily a bad thing in terms of appearance, but in terms of how it feels, you can definitely feel the difference. In short, it looks much better than it feels, being very light (ounces lighter than my Lumia), and almost as if I want to say it feels flimsy; but it isn’t. BlackBerry knows its primary audience is the business world, and the design of the Z10 is undoubtedly something I would have no concern holding to my ear in any environment. Perhaps it’s just me, but I enjoy how sleek the logo looks on the back, as BlackBerry still retains a professional and business-centric image in my mind. Powering the system on takes longer than other phones on the market, but once it is on, it immediately takes you to a tutorial of how to use the phone. Thank God for this, because the Z10 is entirely based on swiping motions. There is no home button anywhere on the phone, and the only buttons that exist are for volume control (on the sides), a voice control button (between the volume controls), and a power button (on top). The power button will wake the phone up from sleeping, but I quickly found out that you can also do so by sliding your finger from the bottom of the screen to the middle, even while the phone is on standby. Definitely nifty and makes for less action, if you’re OCD about saving time to get to that text message. The interface is typical for a smartphone. Microsoft seems to be the only developer that wanted to completely change the layout, but Microsoft also could afford to do such things if it didn’t catch on. BlackBerry made a smart move in keeping the traditional tiled multiple-start screen interface, which feels like a cross between iOS and Android. Come to think of it, that’s probably what they were intending on doing. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but the transition between start screens is cool, with the previous screen fading out as the other one fades in to overlap it. The interface also retains a uniquely BlackBerry look to it, retaining some of the old visual designs adapted for today’s generation. The Z10 was released in Europe before the USA, which is probably a good thing for US customers because it allowed the apps to be tweaked and upgraded before the picky American audience could give them 1-star reviews. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Foursquare (which I don’t use) were pre-installed and worked quite nicely, with the interfaces echoing, again, iOS and Android. On that note, it’s quite evident by this point that BlackBerry purposely kept things as similar as possible so as to not confuse or lose customers over the complexity or incompetency of a new app layout. As much as I hate to keep comparing it to the Windows Phone (which has been my primary phone for months), Microsoft did this with the Facebook app and it, well…sucks, for lack of a better term; but more on apps in a moment. A cool new feature is the BlackBerry hub, which organizes all of your messages, social networks, and emails into one place. You can slide your finger from the left of the screen to the right to bring it up (or have a peek), and also there exists the ability to select only the type of message you want to see. In my case, I’m showing Facebook updates, emails from my work and personal accounts, and text messages, and if I want to just view text messages, I can select the option and only texts are shown in the hub. This is nice, as how BlackBerry originally marketed the feature I was afraid everything would be jumbled up like a big pot of shepherd’s pie. Thankfully, this is not the case. Back to apps. There are quite a few mainstream apps on the BlackBerry World market, which is quite nice considering the same couldn’t be said for Windows. There aren’t, however, enough to satisfy the needs of younger consumers who use their phones for entertainment, but for the businessman/woman, even I found enough to satisfy my appetite. Many of the apps are mirrored from iPhone or Android apps, which isn’t the end of the world, but does inherit the Android interface (such as in the Kindle app). It would be nice to eventually see apps live up to their full potential with the BlackBerry design, but hey, a mirrored app is better than no app. Or Window’s Phone’s Facebook app *shudder*. The phone is loaded with pre-installed apps, again catering mainly to the business world, but among them I found many to replace the apps I used solely to cater to my work’s Windows 8 Infrastructure. It’s my hope that Microsoft and Google develop some proprietary apps for BlackBerry, but I’m not waiting on the edge of my seat, considering BlackBerry is a thorn in Microsoft’s side and Google didn’t feel the Windows Phone had enough of a user base to develop for, and it’s possible they’ll say the same with BlackBerry. Long story short, there still is a definite app-gap (though they boasted 100,000 by the time of the US launch), but I see the numbers growing quickly as an eager fan base develops for the phone. Performance-wise, the phone has been fantastic. Screen quality is crisp and impeccable, and at times I think I’m looking at the iPhone 5’s retina display. I have been putting it over some heavy use since I bought it, and the battery has lasted upwards of 14 hours on a single charge with heavy data useage hammering it up and down. The keyboard works very well for their first touch screen, and I’ve found myself enjoying it even more than other keyboards out there. The OS does a good job of analyzing where you type an incorrect letter compared to the letter you mean to type, and will automatically correct it after it notices a pattern. Word prediction is new and innovative, with predicted words hovering over the next letter in the sequence on the keyboard, requiring a simple flick of your thumb instead of picking it out of a list up top. I haven’t once encountered an app freezing or crashing, and have put the apps through some generous stress-testing to try. While it would lag slightly if I tried to do a ton of actions at once while loading images, say, in the browser or on Facebook, it didn’t result in anything but a minor lag in performance and nothing else. Call quality is decent, and the phone does well at noise cancellation. Speakerphone volume isn’t as loud as I would like it to be, but considering I rarely use it, that’s not a dealbreaker for me. The camera is very nice considering what you would expect out of a business-centric phone. I like to say that the Z10 is for amateur filmmakers what the iPhone is for amateur photographers. While picture quality is about average (it takes gorgeous photos if there’s enough lighting, but noise can be evident if there’s not enough), the video shots are vibrant and colorful, with the phone automatically correcting for shaking that occurs from movement or holding it. This results in some seriously professional video-taking despite an amateur like myself holding it. It seems to want to focus on everything you center the lens on, though, which can be slightly problematic if you move the phone around to look at too many things. All in all, though, while it doesn’t trump the beast of a camera on my Lumia 920 with picture shots, it definitely dominates any video camera on a cell phone I’ve seen out there. I’m looking forward to seeing if any photo-editing apps come out, as those would definitely lead to the camera reaching its full potential. All-in-all, I’m very impressed with this phone, and want it to replace my current phone, the Lumia 920. It has every feature I could want and need, and I’m very excited to see what the community does with app development. As I see it, it can only get better from here, and right now it’s pretty darn good. For business, it’s impeccable, but it could have a tough time catching on to the iPhone and Android spoiled (no offense here) generation. The biggest concern of mine is the future of BlackBerry as a company. I, and I’m sure many people out there, aren’t too keen on the idea of owning a phone that might have no future because its company is on unstable ground. Hopefully this will be the game changer that BlackBerry has been needing all of these years, as it’s truly a gem of the company and I really want to see how it can get better. If not, well, they did a darn good job trying.I would recommend this to a friend

Great overall phonePosted .
I have waited so long for this phone and I couldn't be happier with it. I was reluctant to give up a physical keyboard and having used iTouchs for work purposes, I knew I didn't like theirs. But the intuitive keyboard on the Z10 is amazing; (see the videos on YouTube). My work and personal e-mails are nicely separated and yet easily viewed all together (see the Hub). Internet is superfast. Can't believe how crystal clear phone calls are; speaker is nice and loud as well. Not a big app person, but the ones I have work very well (Barcode scanner, Flixster, Flashlight LED). The camera takes amazing pictures and timeshift helps to edit. Now the best points for me is the fact that the Battery can be removed (for heavy users you can carry a fully charged spare) and that you can add a memory card.I would recommend this to a friend

The Future of Smart PhonesPosted .
This phone is probably one of the most impressive communication devices I have ever owned! The Hub is my favorite feature, it has all the information you need in one place making multitasking easy and intuitive. Second, the keyboard, as you keep on typing it learns your patterns and starts suggesting words that you use the most, you then are able to flick them to the screen. I have cut my typing time in half. Email and calendar management are by far the best I have seen, I use that all the time. The app ecosystem has been growing very quickly and so far all my favorite apps have been available. Can't say enough good things about this device, worth considering if you currently own a touch screen smart phone! You will not be disappointed!

A smart phone that is really SMART!Posted .
The Z10 is an exceptional productivity device. The gesture navigation feature is excellent despite a short learning curve....but it is so well worth it. The MS Outlook calendar and email integration is the best one compared to my about-to-be-retired iPhone 4S and my already-retired droid phone. I do miss iPhone's SIRI and Map app. The Timeshift feature is simply outstanding and the picture quality is great. The phone is slim and has excellent grip. Love the ability to add 64GB of external MicroSD storage, which works just fine, Call quality is excellent and the bluetooth integration works well. The voice command feature is not as good as iPhone but it has some basic commands and it works. The battery life could be better! I ended up purchasing BB Battery Charger bundle, which extends the battery life by several hours. The predictive typing feature is very intuitive and saves a lot of time...however, it does take a few days to get very comfortable. I can go on and on for several more minutes but the best advice I can give anyone is to view the Z10 launch video from Blackberry. Overall, the Z10 is an excellent productivity tool for business professionals who are on the go.I would recommend this to a friend

Exactly What I NeededPosted .
This phone is exactly what I needed. I had an old BB, switched to Palm Treo, then iPhone 3GS then the 4 but nothing really changed so switch to HTC One X because of the camera and it looks a lot nicer then the GS3, and now HTC Titan II but hate it and hate that MS will not update it to the new OS 8. When I saw the Z10 and the Hub I was like, hey, all the messages in one place. I have unlimited text so it's not a big deal to have BBM but instead of opening the email app or FB or texting, it's all in one spot. There's some improvements needed but the update came out already and I'm confident that another update will be out soon as more people give their feedback. As for their app world, well I never really needed anything other than google map but when Waze came out I used it almost exclusively as one time I was driving toward the 405 and it told me to take a detour, and I was like, WTH, why? but as soon as I switched freeway and looked back, traffic was super heavy. Waze updates your route in real time. I play games here and there but not much, usually read the news or listen to music. Netflix app would be nice as I can watch something while working out but the browser is fine for it. Speaking of which, it's ridiculously fast. So this phone is exactly what I needed: the hub for centralizing my messages. Waze for my GPS MP3 when I run outdoor Netflix when on treadmill Don't really play games all that much, so don't care about it. One of the most important thing for me is, I hate it when the app forces me share my contacts or location in order for me to use it, like a flashlight app. Why the F do you need my location to use a flash light? And further research shows that a significant amount of apps send my information off site. So when I learned how the new BB10 OS is built, and how it lets me control my data, this is 60% of my decisions, I was like, you had me at Hello.I would recommend this to a friend

Welcome relief for BBOS of oldPosted .
Going to skip past the basic functions cell phone functions as far as call and text because if you have ever used any BB device, you will know this has never been an issue. I love how the platform built this device from the ground up. The freezing and evil spinning clock on the BB devices of old is a thing of the past. No need for battery pulls and silly restarts when upgrading or deleting software. The hub concept of a customizable central message location is ingenious. BBM messaging puts any other messaging service out there to shame however the benefit may be lost on you if you don't have that many BBM contact. There is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to the UI and gestures but once the curve is overcome it will blow your mind how fast you can get things done. The camera also doesn't do too well in low light conditions but you are able to manually refocus the focal point to a darker area of the image to get a better shot of your actual subject. The app gap is still there so keep that in mind before purchasing. Gaming on it is awesome;the browser and touch keyboard are also the best available in the smartphone world(poll different tech review sites and the consensus is that this is true. I agree as well) I'm on the road a lot and am thankful for the full flash browser that allows me stream content directly from the browser. The mini hdmi out is also an added perk. Battery life is pretty decent for me. No complaints there. This phone works perfectly for me as i am fortunate to have all the apps i actually use available.I would recommend this to a friend

Great Smart phone. It's the smartest!Posted .
Blackberry Z10 is easy to set up and very easy to swipe up and down; learn all the different things it will do. Blackberry has fabricated a great phone here. Once you own a BlackBerry you will never go back to any other smart phone. I have owned a lot different phones and this is the best of the best hands down! All software updates are very easy to download hassle free. You can dowload the BlackBerry Link software off of BlackBerry's website which allows you to download music from you desktop computer onto your BlackBerry Z10 phone. It's Great! Try it you'll like it. I love it...:):):):):):)I would recommend this to a friend
