I can't believe I just paid $670 for it. The Z10 is the most expensive Super Phone I bought so I can't say it's worth it. I will likely sell it when Samsung releases the S4. I still have my Note 2 and remains IMO the best Super Phone released!
I would've kept it if it only cost me $140/Upgrade.
It doesn't help that I have three minor complaints already...
Lack of Apps. I'm not a w#@$! I really only use 5 and none of them are available.
Flipboard, Starbucks, TuneIn, Scotiabank and Cineplex.
The other two is no support for EX-FAT microSD and the Swipe-from-the-Top gesture no longer works like in Videos where I can change titles easily.

You usually have a trial period when signing a contract. I'd do that and try it out. Loving mine a lot and I've had the S3 and iPhone. Those are great phones too as you can tell with their sales. I've had tons of phones and the only one that made me this excited every time I pick it up, was the original iPhone back in '07. This phone truly rocks and will only get better from here on.

Were you expecting those apps to magically pop up? You should've done research. Criticize yourself for not checking out which apps were available before purchasing the phone. You can sideload every single one of those apps though, just fyi.
As for ex-fat support for micro SD, again, that is a case of you not doing enough research before picking up the phone.
Here's how this relates to the OP:
- If you MUST have EX-FAT MicroSD support, Flipboard, Starbucks, TunedIn, Scotiabank, and Cineplex apps, this phone is not for you...

For me it was worth it!. Upgrading from S3 & iPhone 5. Best choice i ever made. I love this phone & i only had one little issue but nothing really bad. Battery life is great on this as i said on a few other threads. I am just waiting for Scotiabank to release their app.Hopefully they release the app soon!.

God i'm sure it is i never had a True Blackberry EXPERIENCE i own an iPhone 4 and i really want a change. Saw the Z10 and immediately loved it.....i just know one rule though "Don't buy a phone on its release date because that's when it has a lot of bugs in it" wait for a month at least then buy one when they re stoke because that's when grantee that your phone is bug free. that's what i do and it always worked for me.

The app selection is a little anemic right now, but that will improve over the coming months. The device itself is brilliant. The OS has a couple of rough edges which again is expected from a .0 release. Was a little concerned about battery life during the first couple of days, but after a couple of cycles draining and completely charging, it's rock solid now. Over all it's a pleasure.

I will hold your horses for now.
BB10 has 70,000 apps that are not useful at all expect for probably 10 apps, a lot of features that Blackberry was famous for are not in the new OS and their proprietary apps, no sync with Outlook, quite a few bugs and a lot of people trying to defend the new phone saying that maybe fixes will come soon is like having a dejavu with what happened with PlayBook.
So. Don't buy it for now. If you want, wait to see if fixes come, but don't hold your breath.

Is the BB Z10 worth it?
I decided to go with the Samsung Galaxy 3. Since I have family that works at Rogers,I get yearly upgrades. I did in fact spend time with the Z10 and was impressed by it,but the Samsung was much better. I'm happy BB came out with a beautiful device and BB10 looks great and so far works ok. The BB calendar wasn't strong and that was a shock since BB always put out great calendars that sync well with Windows. I hope BB 10 comes out for the Playbook soon. I would love to see the Playbook evolve into a serious Tablet that can give Apple,Asus,Google and Samsung a challenge.
