iPhone users jealous of my Z10...
Some colleagues of mine have iPhone 4S and 5 devices. They get so mad when I show them the flow, peek/hub, Web browsing, and especially the keyboard...Timeshift also makes them jealous.
They get so flustered, they don't even mention..well we have more apps than you...
It's great that BlackBerry is starting this comeback.
As for Android users, they are too busy trying to get their phone to work to compare devices!

As a former Android user I was addicted to customizing. It kind of took over my sparetime. I didn't like it.
iPhone to me, is boring and retro by now with it's old interface that does not ever change.
I find the BB OS to be the perfect mix of a modern smartphone UI that looks good and is easy to use. And I just use it as it is intended. As a phone.

Customizing, for me, is a five minute thing. I do what is necessary to get my device to do what it needs to do. Getting something complex like swipe to wake on my Android phone took a bit longer, but the payoff is worth it
It can be addictive for people new to customization.
To be fair, I haven't seen too many people who dislike BB10. The UI is fantastic IMHO.

OP....unfortunately the BB10 does look good on initial inspections but after about a week with the z10 the iPhone users would be screaming for their old phones back. (I can only give my opinion on iphone because I haven't owned an Android)
BB10 falls short in just so many functional ways compared to IOS. Too bad though, I was pulling for BB. Maybe the Q10 will be the sweet spot, because the z10 sure isn't it. I will be looking for a replacement when my year is up...

I agree. For email and texting BlackBerry z10 wins. But the iPhone 5 and 4s can do more with apps and camera eta. You can even turn off your lights with the iphone. I have both and I love both of them. The best phone is the best phone that fit your needs. Who care what your friends think about your phone. Use what's best for you. That's why we have Imore and crackberry.

I only pick ROMs based on a feature (for example, I have one with slide2wake; I crave gestures from BB10). After that, no change, unless there is another feature I need to increase productivity. I won't even update most times... if it works for me, why flash?
On my current device, I have had only two ROMs since I have had it.

Instead of having a verbal dispute about whose daddy can beat up the other, how about some specific and concrete discussion about features, speed, flexibility, and "Fit and finish " between the two devices?

I own an iPhone 5 and a 9790. My friends got a Z10, I'm waiting for the Q10 but honestly as said above, BB10 has copied a few things from iOS and without iOs who knows Bb10 may have never existed. I'm not being bias, all phones are different. An iPhone is for different people compared to the people who use a Z10. You may now agree with me at first, but think.
