    Default Is this really different than the Storm 2?

    I've been thinking about getting this phone as it seems right now to be the best Black Berry full touch phone that can be had. I was wondering is it just pretty? Or is the new QNX OS really better than OS 5? With Black Berries do you still need to pull the battery every day? And when you buy an app on the App World is it all still pin based? I remember buying apps and having to keep contacting the developers to transfer my licenses, etc. I know if I were to ask this on Android Central I'd just get a load of crap. So I'm posting here, even though it's been 2 years since I've posted over here. Anything anyone can tell me would very much be appreciated.

    Very, very, very much so.

    No, and even then, the Z30 has a fixed battery.

    BlackBerry ID-based now (i.e. email).

    I came from the Storm 2, to the Z10 and now the Z30. There is absolutely no comparison.

    I had the Storm 2. Since then, I've had a Torch 9850, a Z10, and now a Z30. Each has been much improved over the previous device.

    You've really missed a lot. BB10 is amazing. I had Storm & Storm 2. The Z30 is different. Best device on the market.

    Apps are now tied to BlackBerry ID, so no need to contact developers to transfer licenses. Simply log on to your new device and download your previous purchases.

    Is the OP joking? Not trying to be rude but if you're being serious all you have to do is check the Z30 out at local carrier store, your question will be answered inside a minute.

    BB10 blows OS5 out of the water.

    Do you think it's very easy to find a Z30 on display like a car dealership for you to test drive? A lot of carriers outside of Canada don't even carry any BB10 devices nowadays.

    It's not only better. It's actually worth using. Get the Z10 though.

    I liked the Storm 2, so sue me!
    Also went to 9850, Z10, now Z30.
    BTW is there a way to have it stop reminding me "all apps are to the right" when I swipe to the Hub?

    It's been quite some time my friend and I'm not surprised you know so little of OS10. Many users still to this day simply do not want to go back because they believe it is still the same obsolete OS. But do not take my word for it. Take it from us all, OS10 is vastly different from any legacy OS and it has nothing but improved in every single aspect. Give it a try brother and once you go back to Black the Berry won't ever let you go back.

    OP you are in for a REAL treat. Bb10 was a gift for those who remained loyal and an official callout for those who left saying "come back home, we got you". Still waiting on active wallpapers though. But no biggie.

    In the end, anything is better than the storm product family.

    Just swipe to the left when you get that message.

    The only ressemblance is that both are touchscreen phones!

    I had the Storm 2 and absolutely loved that device. But yes, there is no comparison to the Z30. I kept saying to myself when I owned the Storm 2...only if this device had 4G/ faster Internet speeds it would be the ultimate device for my needs.

    You bet the Storm2 was a great phone, loved it and still have it. Went directly to the Z30, did not pass GO, Wow, what a difference, Z30 Yup, Great, No regrets.

    For all its issues, the Storm series brought me to BlackBerry because I never would have gone with a QWERTY device. Also, my 9530 brought me to CrackBerry so I could, first of all, keep the thing working, but also to learn how to get the most out of my device. Because of the knowledge I picked up from many here, I had that device in top form. It's just to bad RIM never gave those devices enough memory...

    Even the Z3 and Z10 are far superior.
