    Default BlackBerry Z10 is better than older Blackberry's

    For those of you holding out on the z10 due to either the app excuses, lame excuses about how certain things have changed i.e. Profiles, battery moans etc... you're only playing yourself.

    I got it yesterday here in the uk on EE. This phone is so much more better than old blackberries that you would not even look back. Even this crackberry app I'm using right now is so fly.. you just gotta try it to believe it. There are loads of Android apps that work just fine and you wouldn't be missing anything.

    I've got whatsapp, Im+, flipboard, BBC news, YouTube, Google maps, social scope, cnn news, etc. The official Facebook app on my opinion is better than the BlackBerry os version. I've read here and there that some folks are moaning about it.. that's their opinion but I think it rocks.

    The messaging experience is top class. You can make voice calls on bbm with carrier data so no wifi limitations. The keyboard is so good. Every review has basically said it's the best they ever used.

    And trust me.. it is way cooler when you're on the train and the 100 or so people around you are on their Iphones or androids then you pull this out.

    Stop wasting time.. get this phone. One thing is for sure... it can only get better.

    The upsides of this phone massively outweigh the downsides.

    I would concur with the OP. The sooner people move on with BB10 the sooner BlackBerry can bring all their resources to bear on it. Just the keyboard, the browser, the screen, the UI and the CB app is enough to convince me this is the way forward.

    Everyone has different priorities and reasons for buying a phone. Those things might be "lame" to you, but are deal-killers for me.

    Fair enough but mate. If you were a friend who lived nearby I'd give you the phone for a day then ask your opinion later on. The pros far outweigh the cons and u can be almost sure that as time progresses, blackberry would try to put in features that made the BlackBerry experience what it is. If you decide to wait.. Good on you but I'm in from the get go. Just put my 9860 on Amazon already.

    Heard people asking about push email and stuff.. it is push. Have no fear.

    I think your comment a little bit on the flippant side. What you really mean is that those items make little or no difference to you, personally.
    The 30-day maximum email sync is a show-stopper for me. I'm a project manager, and my projects last a year or more. I have to access old email while on the go. So, I'm awaiting the OS update that is supposed to address this. Once that drops, I'm on-board. Until then, I stick with my old reliable 9900.

    I'm not being flippant. You guys take this phone business to seriously at times lol. Just saying.. What u give up for the near future does not even really matter given what u gain. Just like everything else. Don't knock it till you try it.

    The email issue for instance. Even on my 9860 I set it up to keep only 15 days worth of mails. So the 30 for me is plenty.

    If I only needed 15 days of email I'd already have the Z10. Did you actually read my response?

    So the new features and quality of the Z10 are certainly welcome. But the loss of some of the core BlackBerry features like battery life, profiles, email management, etc, are very important for some people. Those features differentiated the BlackBerry brand from its competition, and for some, those things were what made BlackBerry the ultimate communication tool, and kept them from switching. There are some new features that now differentiate the brand, but for those people that really made use of those core features, it's one step forward, two steps back. Telling people what they do or don't want in a phone is very Apple-like, and quite frankly, ain't nobody here got the marketing department for that.

    The thing is.. nothing has changed. The profiles are still bang on. Not as customizable but still top notch. The email has not changed.. it works as good as old bbos and so much better in terms of display of the actual emails. The battery is not bad either. I'm not knocking anyone's opinions but for the most part they are for me.. irrelevant. Up to yesterday.. I was of the old school of thought and felt I'd given up so much but after one full day.. I haven't lost anything. Got my most used apps back.. just loaded up the os 5 and 6 ring tones downloaded from this site.

    I've had only one annoyance.. bbm group messages tone.. couldn't set to silent but low and behold, the solution was to remove from hub. No further issues. The speed, stability, no spinning clock, the hub, keyboard, screen, OS, etc.. are just way to much of an improvement for me to pick on not having up to 30 days email on device. That's what remote search is there for. I always did it that was on my 9860 if I needed emails older than 15 days.

    So in 1 day you got your most used apps from os7 back, even though most os7 apps aren't out for bb10 yet.

    You found a solution for a problem you were having, which was to stop using the hub for BBM. The hub being one of the major new features.

    You found the battery life to be fine when most people find the first day the worst.

    You find profiles are still 'bang on' even though you can no longer customise individual volumes, vibrate lengths and email account sounds without a third party app that isn't able to recognise profiles that are active.

    And you say the email has not changed even though you can't see the senders email addresses or cced email addresses, there's no BIS, you can't resend an email easily if it fails sending, and you can't delete on device only.

    There's misinformation, then there's trolling, then there's what you're saying.
