    Okay, i wasn't able to specify my needs for a phone. Well, for one, i'm more on productivity rather than entertainment. I use a phone for emails and messaging more frequently rather than gaming. (i find Android, and even iPhone games not too appealing even up to now) I'm one for customization, but it's not really a requirement of mine.

    I had a curve 9320 before, and the reception was topnotch. My Android.. not too much. As for my iPhone, the battery life is hell when reception is spotty. I'm looking to get the Z10, as i think that fits my budget and my needs.

    Although, a couple of things are holding me back. I'm not really sure if the UI is snappy enough to give a quicker access to messaging from the hub, and I'm not too sure about the battery life. I don't really care about installing Android apps, as I think that native apps from BlackBerry are enough for my needs.

    If I want gaming, I'd rather go for a 3DS or a Vita. Also, I don't use too much of Google's Services, so I'm sure switching won't be a problem for me. (The only thing I'm worried about is a YouTube app, I'm not sure if that's available on the Z10 as it was somewhat of a workaround on my 9320)

    Also, I heard that the Z10 has an awesome (but quite saturated) camera. How would you rate it? I'm posting here because I'm looking for personal experiences rather than reviews.

    I hope that at least sheds light to what I want. o____o.. or maybe that was a long read. But anyway, thank you in advance. I really want to own a Z10

    PS. I have an Android with a 4000mAh battery, so that's one of the things holding me back as well. sorry for being complicated o____o..

    I would go for the Z30. The price is going down all the time.

    It is very snappy, doesn't lag at all doing anything.
    The battery life is amazing, oled and dark theme help with the big battery.
    Apps are there via BlackBerry world and android
    SD card, USB host, hdmi make it a great media player
    Paratek antenna is amazing. More bars in more places for sure
    keyboard is the best period. (takes a few days to learn you)
    FM radio if your into that

    The Z10 is good too though

    The z10 reception is good, but in my experience ( and from reading here) a weak signal will drain the battery noticeably faster. It may also depend on your network operator how bad this is.
    I think it is no worse than any other device.

    UI is plenty snappy. If you have ever used a Samsung galaxy phone then you'll be amazed how fast. Plus, based on heresay and experience, Samsung phones slow down with age even without changing stuff or installing apps.
    Battery life isn't brilliant but workable.

    YouTube works adequately in the browser. I'm sure there are probably some third party native apps as well.

    Camera is Ok in decent light. In the official OS at the moment it is fairly basic though with respect to features. It's definitely not awesome, but if you want excellent pictures then a mobile phone is the wrong device.

    If you really want a z10 then go for it. They can be got for sensible money at the moment and you get spare batteries and a charger bundle for a few notes more. It's not fault free, but then no device is. I don't regret getting mine.
