    BlackBerry has, for years, used red exclusively for the "action splat" and the LED notification. Red is meant to alert you to unattended business. Why the h3ll would they bleed red all over the UI so as to drown out their iconic splat? It does not make sense.

    That's actually a good, logical argument as to why red can't work as the UI accent colour. Better than my argument: "it's immature."

    Here's my suggestion for the quick settings drop down menu. I made this a few nights ago for my 10.3 concept. Only change was blue to red. Looks like BB is heading towards black and red for their new colour scheme. This is just a concept.

    BTW - I am not the most artistic person in the world so be kind.

    As far as the red/cyan, maybe we will get lucky, and be able to define from a subset colors. Green and orange, anyone

    Not if you ask me it shouldnt. I DO NOT like it AT ALL. I dont think red is a good color to force people to have. If you're going to have it be only one color, the blue is much more neutral and likely to appeal to more people. Of course the best thing to do would be to have a color palette and let us choose what we want.
    I'm with you, red is a bad colour but what James said in BlackBerry 10.3 Hands On Beta Build. He said it's just a beta and not to worry about the colour.

    I think we should be able to pick both colours (text/buttons and background) for a bit more customization and it wouldn't be hard to throw in a colour pallet, it's just a win-win.
    Girls can have pink on purple or pink on black(better one)
    Guys can have orange on blue or blue on black (better one)

    Two things I would like to see.

    1) Swipe across album art to change song. Quick and easy to change without really looking, if driving or otherwise busy.

    2) Artwork like this (http://www.awwwards.com/awards/image...xamples-07.jpg) for apps. Simple, but not too too simple.

    this one I actually like, but red on black is little over the top.

    I don't mind the red if the option shows up for us to customize the accent color, like we can tweak white balance today. That would be pretty neat i think.

    You do understand that 10.3 is not only a leak but also a work-in-progress? It is not meant for consumer consumption. The official release of 10.3 will be vastly improved and uniform.

    Take a pretty design and screw it in the later versions. This is what BlackBerry has done with 10.3. Why fix something which is not broken? Seriously, if you want to go flat just go flat all the way. There is no consistency from what I see in the screenshots (I know its still in early stages). There are still gradients in the title bar, alert buttons and other elements. Its red some where and blue somewhere else. May be its not implemented throughout the OS. vSome switches are blue some are red. I shouldn't be commenting on a leak but if this becomes real I will be less excited with 10.3.
    Once again, it is a leaked version of a beta 10.3. Nothing with it is official as of yet. What are they fixing? Nothing. This leak is nothing more than some devs trying out new ideas. The final release could very well be completely different.

    I actually installed the leak last night. First off, the "red" is not red, it has more orange and/or pink in it. Formally blue lines are all "red" now, or remain their grey color such as in BB World.

    The "separation bars" in BBM are still blue, though.

    Honestly, I think the red works for the most part. And yes, it does look a little too suspect to iOS7.

    Yes, I do understand that this is their first leak for 10.3 and they are looking for lab rats, but more to ironing out the bugs. But taking 10.2 as a yardstick, I cannot expect the 10.3 final release to be different from this by a mile. BB should pay attention to their industrial design for this.

    I thought so too. Originally it was "BlackBerry blue" but I switched it to match what we are seeing in the current 10.3 leak.

    Here is a quick and proper FLAT design under few hours. It cant be that hard for Christ sake.

    And it features modular menu with typography instead of iconography, minimalistic

    Nice work! I like the layout. Not a big fan of some of the colours chosen for the icons, but for something done under a few hours it's done very well.

    Have you tried shrinking this to the size of a Z10?

    Yup. It needs bigger font size but this is for desktop presentation. It looks weird with proper sized font.

    This image on my monitor measures 7" X 4.25", bringing that down to the Z10 can only result in fonts all getting smaller, not bigger. If fonts are bigger then everything will be out of proportion.

    cant believe so many people are so bent out of shape over the color red
    i personally love that color

    so if the OS starts to look this i can totally dig it, i think there should be options but if there isnt i dont think its something to cry about

    I dont understand the hate on the clock app, like how long do you spend looking at that app

    I hope they fix the contact app though
    Im excited for all the features in the camera app, and the revamp of the virtual assistant

    Thats really great work! Especially for a couple of hours effort.

    I agree that this 10.3 is a very very early development version. We shouldnt be too harsh on what we see and maybe build on things constructively.

    100% they need to get rid of the red or have the option to customize, which would be awesome by the way.
