    I understand that you can install apk files directly in 10.2.1, but I also got an impression that the runtime can be faster than android itself during to wizardry from BlackBerry engineering, which is a big claim.

    Now my question for the folks out there who have installed 1055, how do you feel about the performance of android apps comparing to when it was running on 10.2.0? If you happens to have one of those flagship android phones such as Samsung S4, Note 2 or 3, HTC One, LG G2, etc, how does the BB10.2.1 runtime compare to your native android app experience?

    I'd say it depends on the app. Some of my apps work pretty sluggish but others like minecraft pe work faster than most android devices, if not all

    As this runtime is still incomplete this is a difficult comparison. Based off of my own and other's stress tests I would guess that a Z30 on 1055 would run most apps on the same level as a GS4 or HTC One. Imo the G2 and the Note 3 are still faster, that snapdragon 800 is beastly.

    There are still many things that don't work but simply running an app on Bb10 is quite impressive. Once the runtime is fully booted it's extremely fast and yes I do believe that BlackBerry's software optimization has made all the difference.

    Of course this is very subjective. You will see different results on different apps, phones etc. The nexus 5 for example is vanilla android and runs it very well whereas the GS4 is bogged down by touchwiz. Bottom line is that runtime is seriously fast and I can't wait to see what the next one is like
