    ]I don't know about you guys, but I love these two settings so far. When I'm at my desk, I always place my phone face down. Now I don't even have to press the lock button when I put it down or swipe up when I pick it up! Such a simple tweak that improved my BB10 experience tenfold. So what I want to know is how would you expand on these? I'd love the wave to answer calls like on the Galaxy series.

    Yes nice settings I agree, but I personally don't want any option from any other phone, I want BB to be there own, that's why I use them.

    I love this new feature too but it seems to not work quite right on the 10.3 leak. I'm sure it will be perfected for the official release can't wait!

    I understand your point of view, but some things should become standard. I noticed that now you can have the screen illuminate when you get messages, which is definitely an iPhone feature, can't say about Android. But it's very nice to have regardless of the originator.

    I had posted this on an earlier thread, but goes along with the sensor-based "advanced interaction" topic.

    Auto-Dial:

    Whether we realize it or not, most of us do certain things in very mechanically-predictable and repeatable patterns. We get into the 'habit' of ___. How we handle our smartphones for specific tasks is definitely one of those things. Usually we rest our smartphones either flat on a table, inside a dark pocket, or inside a holster. To make a call, you pick it up or remove it from the pocket/holster, move it to a certain intermediate location to dial, and raise it up to your head for the call.

    Each of those states can be detected using current smartphone sensors. When the device is on a table, it is flat and motionless (detectable using gyroscope and accelerometer). If it was in a pocket/holster, the ambient light sensor would detect low light and/or the sleeper magnet sensor would be activated. Once you remove it from said starting position, the sensors would change, triggering a monitoring of the gyroscope and accelerometer as your move the phone towards your head, at which point (a) the motion suddenly stops (detectable), (b) device is held vertically upright (detectable) and (c) the proximity sensor is triggered (detectable).

    Using an appropriate machine-learning technique (neural networks, Kalman filters, etc.), each user-specific sensor variation sequence could be associated with the user picking up the phone and putting it up to their head. At which point the Intelligent Assistant merely prompts "DIAL" through the phone earpiece (not the speaker phone), the user simply responds "Jessica" or "234-0567", and waits for the call to go through. No button press, no awkward "Siri,.. call Jess", no embarrassing back and forth with your phone publicized through the speaker phone. You just simply pick up your phone, put it to your head and say the contact name or phone number.

    This is very much in the spirit of "tools not toys". Great!

    It doesn't work very well on my Q10. If I pick up my phone too quick after it faces down, the screen lights on even if I don't turn on the first option.

    I appreciate and even like these options but honestly I hardly ever place my phone face down on a surface as that might risk damaging the screen even if I have a screen protector on it, I'd rather just not do that

    Siff, New features come from people, you know...developers, not hardware. Get a grip. Open your mind. Utilize advancement the best you can. Wake up and smell the roses. Don't be a hater. Enough said. Who cares if we saw something on another platform if it helps you in your quest for performance and ease of use. Smiling takes less effort than frowning. (I think)
