It looks like we are trying to compare Apples to Berries Literally. iPhone 5s has a 4" screen, the Z30 has a 5" screen...Why do we get into this Mine does this yours sucks and yours can't do this , blah blah blah?
The iPhone is not crap. The BB10 phones are not crap. These are two very different phones. I personally will not use an iPhone. I hate them, not because they are crap. I love my Blackberry Z10 not because it is the best phone in the world, but because I like the way it works for ME. Yes I think the Z10 is better in many ways than any iPhone out there. Can My Z10 do things the iPhone doesn't , Yes. Can the iPhone do things my Z10 doesn't, yes. Do I care about what I don't use my phone for? NO.
iPhone is a huge success due to the way Apple controls their environment for their users. This works great for the masses because the masses truly are not geeks like most of us posting on these forums. My sisters, mother and other family members love their iPhones. Can they do anything other than make a call, listen to music, or take a picture and share it? NOPE! Do they care? NOPE! The only time it pisses me off is when they ask me to do something for them on their iPhone, then the complaining starts. grin.
The issue is BB10 really is a huge evolutionary step for BlackBerry and honestly it really is a step above what iOS has to offer in so many ways. We BlackBerry fans just want you iPhone fans to at least give a head nod of yeah that's cool. When the iPhone came out it was a revolutionary step up for phones PERIOD! We appreciate that.The iPhone has had incremental upgrades and some more than others, but the iOS has not changed in such a way that BB went from BBOS to BB10. BlackBerry can succeed in this market by slowly gaining a foot hold again. They will not do this by throwing pebbles at the giant in the room. The Z30 does not compete with the iPhone 5S as something to steal existing users from Apple. the Z30 is simply an alternative to someone wanting to upgrade to a new phone, or possibly looking for a change. Apple, BlackBerry, and Android all have different systems that utilize hardware differently. Android simply requires more resources than BlackBerry or Apple phones do. Their specs will typically out do ours every time. They need it. BlackBerry users don't. Apple Users probably don't either. What Apple did with the iPhone 5S was simply shut the argument on the spec compare. They brought a bigger bat, 64bit processor. WOW! Seriously?? Yes they did. I personally prefer a samurai sword to a claymore, but the claymore sure does out spec the Katana and looks more impressive on the wall, due to it's size. Is it more efficient? No. Does it show strength? Yes. Apple is showing their strength with that processor and that's all. It trumps the spec debate to the average user. Doesn't mean it is truly more efficient. I'm starting to rant. Sorry...
BlackBerry needs to put out a solid phone and experience, they have. Problem is they failed at marketing it. Please step it up Blackberry. The Z10 is a great phone the Q10 is a great phone. The BB10 experience is awesome. I am looking forward to the incremental update to my phone of 10.2. I will love it. I will buy a Z3- when it comes out. I personally want the bigger screen. The performance of my phone is fantastic I can't see that I would notice improved processor speed on my phone until I need to do something more on it, which I don't at the moment.
Again sorry for the long rant. Carry on...
