"Great now and very promising for the future" By PhoneDog fan ASUPRICE on March 23, 2013
One knock on this phone was lack of apps, but I have noticed that all the apps I like are available or able to be side loaded (except instagram). New apps are added on a daily basis and I believe that Blackberry will pass Windows Phone to take the number 3 spot. The z10 has a great build quality. It feels well balanced and solid. The closest comparison would be that it feels kind of like an iphone 5. In my testing so far battery life has been on par with other leading smartphones and cell signal has been solid. The OS is what really sets the z10 apart though. It's smooth and efficient and the on screen keyboard is phenomenal. The multitasking home page is a lot like a set of live tiles which is neat as some developers have found interesting ways to modify their apps to take advantage of this. The blackberry hub is also very nice. I forgot how convenient it is to have all messages together in a unified inbox. I would like to be able to have icons for my email accounts though. Maybe a future update will fix that. Overall, this is a great device. If it continues to gain developer support then blackberry is back.
