Jason Wilde Lol people bitching cuz the z10 is a good phone lol if u don't like it then don't vote for it
Bryan Sager If you look at the actual votes you can see that less then 1000 people even took the time to vote. Phonedog.com is not a good source for how popular any of those phones actually are to the public. They should not post poles that get so few votes. Its a poor representation. Maybe they should concentrate more on getting people to even go visit their site. I wonder if the companys paying them for adds realize how low their site visits are.
Mark Belkowski lmao... the z10 beat the note 2? is blackberry paying you to say this?
