Good: Its not a a Iphone
Comment: Well i can not trust a Pro Apple channel to look at any device with Un Apple Eyes But For Blackberrys first shot its not bad and its 4G cross Network (NOT EE) i can see this making a nice device
Oh CNET UK stop comparing every phone to a Out dated Iphone
Comment: Love it
Good: New user interface
Bad: Haven't found anything yet
Comment: Just purchased the new Z10. Been a BB user for several years now and couldn't wait to get my hands on this handset. First off, the interface is a major change from previous BB OS. Feels smooth and fluid, haven't experienced any of the aforementioned 'juddering'. Very appealing to look at, good size without being massive ala the Galaxy Note type behemoth. Transfering all my BBM/email acoounts to new handset was a doddle. Screen colour and vibrance just right with clear icons. Love the timeshift feature on the camera with the addition of being able to apply different effects to the photo. The reason I really like this phone is simple. BB have taken a major step change in the design and interface of their phones. Unlike other major manafucturers (thinking of a half eaten fruit here) they haven't just given an old phone a facelift and changed the connectors to generate more cash. They've taken a major departure from their normal design. So what if the apps are limited at the moment, it's a new OS! I'm not interested in stupid noises for my phone, I use it to communicate. To end, well done BB for such a bold move! Let's see if the half eaten fruit company have the kahoonas to realease something new.
Good: Qt/Cascades dev tools
Bad: Overpriced, buggy, not consistently smooth, laggy, poor browsing experience
Comment: I think this review pretty much nails it. The Z10 certainly has potential, browsing some websites feels great, super smooth, while others stutter and scrolling is jerky.
Feels unfinished, bad user experience, Nexus 4 a much better option for nearly half the price.
Good: New, Diferent, alternative to Android and iOS, (been there done that)
Bad: Apps, need more apps, but then again, who needs 1000 fart apps
Comment: I have had the phone since the 1st of Feb, and i love it, do not get me wrong it has issues,
1. Battery isn't the best, but you can have spares, (try that on iphone)
2. Apps, not many, but then again, it is a new platform, so i hope it will grow.
3. no...thats it......
Good: good looking
Bad: everything else
Comment: I said from the begining BB10 aint going to be much good, i wouldn't recommend this if you want a real smartphone, this Z10 lacks tech even some other lowerend smartphones have, it lags when opening apps and in some cases lags terribly and when you do open an app it doesn't open there, it sends the app to the task manager and then you open it from there WTF,the phone feels nice but is rather small compared to todays standard,if you want to watch tv or a movie on the tube forget it completely pointless,the camera isnt up to standard compared to the likes of the mighty S3,iphone 5 or even the nexus 4,colour is strong and rich but the responsiveness of the shutter is terrible, all in all for a new smartphone that BB stated would make the laptop obsolete isnt up to much, i wouldn't even call it a topend smartphone, sorry BB but you haven't pulled it off this time, could be the end of BB, i hope not but it dont look good.......
Bad: Lack of apps (hopefully temporary)
Comment: Easy to use, very nice UI, keyboard, screen, speed, browser, BB Hub
And it's different...
Good: everything. i just love it
Bad: battery life seems to be just ok
Comment: It's a new fresh take on the smartphone UI. Honestly i've grown bored with iOS. Its the same since it was introduced years ago. they think if it aint broke dont fix it.... they change car designs every 4 years ago. There must be a reason for that dont you think?
