I started a new thread about this because CrackBerry's similar thread suggestion algorithm failed to notify me of this one.
Oh well... Here are my two cents.
I physically felt sick to my stomach as he was schizophrenically jumping in and out of apps, half-a**ed swiping from the bottom, and ultimately making the Z10 look like a bag of trash. If you watch it with the sound turned off it actually looks like it's in fast forward mode.
I was a little upset when BlackBerry world somewhat crashed when he was looking at music, but at the same time, I'm pretty sure he had 8 applications running and he doesn't understand the concept of memory allocation. No normal user would treat their phone like that. I have never had a problem with BlackBerry World crashing.Passport to a wider perspective on things.

You missed the point of my post...
I was stating that Aaron is not a normal user, so to put the Z10 under the pressure test like he did is not representative of how it would function for the majority of people. As a professional tech blogger, he should be able to adjust.
Take, for example, his review of the iPhone 5, which he also had trouble with (look it up if you're curious). It was a rare glitch, but he still decided to focus on it.Passport to a wider perspective on things.

The phone didn't crash, but App World kind of went left on him. Since there are few moving parts to that, as a technical person I can't believe it isnt something network related possibly

RE: Aaron from PHONEDOG reviews the Z10
Once again making excuses for the Z10s lack of performance. :/ If the phone can't handle 8 applications then why allow it to?

If I don't respond to you, it probably means that I am tired of the thread. Please PM me if you need to ask me something, vent, whine, respond to a post, ect.

If you feel sick, don't watch it.
The Z10 had some shortcommings in the review, nothing major. I love Aaron's reviews. Whether or not he liked it isn't going to influence my decision.
I'm still getting BB10. You're still getting BB10.
The new BlackBerry is on the rise, and there's nothing going to hold it back now. The tables are already turning.

He is like a g0ddamn hampster on speed for f*ck sake.
It was actually very annoying to watch both videos.
"...Little BlackBerry issues..."
I forgot that iOS and android are perfect... Oi Vey...
"...I am not comparing this in any way to BlackBerry 7..." Are you kidding me? How many times did he COMPARE the two??? Oh boy...
I am sorry but that was annoying.Former:

To everyone else trying to find excuses: stop it. It happened, the Z10 had an unfortunate hiccup. It's not perfect.
To everyone trying to blow this up to be bigger than it is: stop it. All devices have bugs to iron out. This doesn't happen to everyone, every time they use app world, so it's obviously isolated.

Decent review overall. If things like that happen then it's important for people to know. It didn't seem to me like he was putting undue stress on the phone. But every OS has little issues like this.
Where I found his review annoying is where he implied that BB10 is just a "fresh coat of paint" over the old BBOS, even though the two share no code at all.
In the end, whoever wants the phone is going to get it anyway. Its just good that people get a general idea of what could happen sometimes. I thought overall it was a good review. Said alot of positive about the phone, but pointed out the negatives he saw.
I cant wait to check out the dogfights he does with other phones against the Z10
