I love this phone so much and the OS is just the best in the market.
Well done blackberry! Hope to see someday a BB10 phone with quad core and a 10+ megapixel cam.
But even with only a dual core the Z10 is incredible FAST!Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10

Bill Gates was right: it all comes down to software. As I stood at the ATT store several years back with my 87/8800 brick (solid as a rock), I could have chosen the iPhone or BB Torch. I picked the torch. Why? Because it had touch but the iconic keyboard in one. At the time it was an ideal combo. I later regretted it when ridiculed by colleagues, friends and family telling me "BB's dead - they screwed up bad". Then, just a few days ago, I went back to the same store, looked at all the alternatives (Samsung, MOT, iPhone, HTC, NOK and SNY). Of all, NOK was the most solidly built but Sony felt quite good in my hand.
Disclaimer: I'm looking for a phone (#1) and other stuff (#2 priority). If I wanted an awesome camera, I would probably buy a device made specifically for that purpose. But that's just me. Since everyone's expectations are much higher now, we want more and we want it for less. So, after ruling out the iPhone 5 (piece of crap if only because I can't expand the memory) and the Samsung (ditto but because android UI really needs work and the device itself is of cheap quality) and the HTC (again device quality), I was left with the Nokia Lumia, Sony whatever and the trusty BB.
My main gripe with the older BB OS was the lack of apps. But now, that limitation is GONE! I can load android apps onto my BB! Soon someone will make a hypervisor for iOS. So apps (aka software) is no longer the issue. Still waiting for Skype though. But you get the idea. Now I get the reliability...Build quality 8/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 9/10Battery 9/10
- hub and centralized messaging
- feels good holding it
- virtualizing apps written for other platforms
- certain pre-loaded apps seem buggy
- missing the home button (throw us a bone)
- missing back button (why not do both?)

mail: no push mail. syncs ONLY 30 days worth of emails. does not thread conversations correctly, will break up your threads. no way to work around this. its a KNOWN flaw.
camera: ok. nothing amazing.
voice assistant: junk. does not understand basic commands. always refers you to web search.
app store: junk apps.
android sideload of apps: all become laggy with majority not being able to access network.

Z10 is awesome

The phone sure resembles its new motto: Re-designed, Re-engineered, and Re-invented.
Major change and improvement from all the previous devices but most of all is no more sand timer.
Time-shift sure is unique, now we can easily choose the best moment from the frames, keyboard is superb not forgetting it word suggestion makes typing easier. Blackberry Hub is kinda the same like Message in the previous devices but more organized and easily used. The UI is so fresh and new but still user friendly once you get used to it. Don't forget to try the Story Maker, it's an end user videos and pictures editor so that you can make up a story with your videos or pictures or even both; combine them, arrange them and make one great story to show and share to your friends. Overall, it is a great phone, be sure to have it!!Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10

Blackberry have certainly come up with a great device and software this time. Its an excellent device with great new features. Fluid, responsive and fresh looking interface. BB OS10 certainly provides a new attractive alternative to Android and IOS. The only thing missing is the quantity and quality of apps, They are working hard to get all major apps. there have already more than 100,000 apps there but most of them are ported from Android. Even for a new OS its a great start. Highly recommendedBuild quality 9/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 7/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 10/10Display 9/10Battery 7/10
- High pixel density screen, over 356ppi
- High-resolution display
- Massive RAM 2GB
- HDMI connector for TV-out (Micro HDMI (Type D))
- Camera is not good as competition
- Quantity of Apps

Blackberry have certainly turned it up. from hard ware to soft ware, this device is excellent. So fluid and responsive. I love the new OS10....and the apps, well they would need more apps though, as long as I could clone from the android......I have no problem with it. Business wise, this phone is fantastic. Thumbs up BBM.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10
