    How is the performance once the app is loaded? Any better than 10.2.1?

    I've seen 10.2.1 versus 10.3.0.700 comparison videos that show apps loading way faster on 10.3.0.700, but I have yet to see a comparison of the performance of apps after they load.

    Hopefully they run faster on 10.3.0.700, because there are still a lot of Android apps on 10.2.1 that work but run so slowly as to be almost unusable.

    For example: tumblr for Android. It just cannot load all the animated GIFs fast enough, and lags and, even completely freezes for seconds at a time. On the other hand, my Dad's old Galaxy Nexus (from 2011) runs tumblr very smoothly with no freezing.

    very big improvement while at opening the app after entering into the app same as in 10.2 bb needs to concentrate on that!!!!

    Do you run 10.3.0.700? (the .700 version is supposed to have the fastest runtime --
    .700 is supposed to be much faster with Android apps than pre-700 versions of 10.3).

    Speed is not my main concern in 10.3. The thing I want is system stability while running android apps. I want my battery consumption and memory usage same as while using native apps. On android apps battery starts discharging at more than double speed.

    Definitely there are some Android apps that kill the battery, but not all do.

    For example: Instagram doesn't seem to use much battery. Neither does Pocket or Feedly.

    But some definitely do, like Seeking Alpha which seems to use the CPU nonstop, even when it's not doing anything.

    The apps that don't use a lot of battery go to an "IDLE" state when not in use (e.g.: look at Instagram in the device monitor CPU tab -- you'll see that it says IDLE. i.e.: it's not using any CPU when you aren't using it).

    That is ok. But what I mean is when I play native BlackBerry games the battery gets diturbed very normally but when I play android games of same nature then the battery starts dying like hell.

    I just went back to 10.3 because of the runtime. I'll be keeping my Q10 like this until I switch back to the bold 9900 and my iPhone.

    It's really reliable but again, the lack of push notifications in some apps is really depressing.

    That's the last chance I'm giving to BlackBerry mate, otherwise I'm dropping OS 10 in favor of their old system.

    Push notifications are the dirty secret about Android on BB10.

    If push notifications don't work (for at least Amazon apps) in the official 10.3, then I'm not sure how to justify staying with BlackBerry. Some people don't care about apps, but I'm not one of those people--however, I can accept having the more limited selection of consumer apps available from Amazon and BBW (compared to Google-Android and iOS) since I like how BB10 works so much.

    But if BlackBerry expects the Amazon store to be our primary source for consumer apps in the future, yet they don't support push notifications from Amazon apps, then it just doesn't make sense to stay with BlackBerry 10 for me.

    It makes no sense to use a platform whose primary consumer app store contains nothing but apps that don't even fully work on your device! Just doesn't compute.

    Of course, if you don't care much for consumer apps, then there are still tons of great reasons to stay with BlackBerry: each person has different needs.

    Does the BB10 Android runtime use only one processor core?

    I ran an Android benchmark app called Antutu (you can get it off Snap). It's very popular and even Google uses it to demonstrate the performance of its apps and phones sometimes.

    Here's the thing: it reports that my Z10 has a SINGLE CORE cpu even though the Z10 actually has a dual core cpu!

    Is the BB10 Android runtime restricting Android apps to using only 1 core of our dual core phones?

    10.2.1.3247. But I'm pretty sure it's the same with 10.3, but I would have to track down the thread I read it in (or thought I read or in) to be 100 percent sure.

    I'm on 10.2 but was on 10.3 for a few months.

    I suspected that 10.2 did not use both cores in Android, at least at times.

    Google Maps on 10.2 won't show 3d buildings. 10.3 does. I understand that Google maps won't show 3d unless you have a dual core processor. So, something changed between 10.2 and 10.3.

    Unfortunately, it seems to render 3d on 10.2.1 as well, so 3d does not seem to imply "dual core".

    That's not the 3d I mean


    Back on 10.3.1. It shows as dual core.

    Yeah, that is WAY nicer than the 3D in 10.2.1. Very cool!

    You should post a screenshot of whatever benchmark tool you used showing that it says "dual core". (Not that I don't trust you, but just so it can be officially 'confirmed').
