    Would love to read everyone's pros and cons list for 10.3 and then maybe an overall score on scale of 10.

    Maybe keep to 5 pros and 5 cons.

    Here's a few of mine. Keep in mind everyone will have a different take on these so there's no right of wrong.

    Pros:

    1. Love the UI. Lots of great new stuff!
    2. It's great to be able to block specific phone numbers and you can only do this on 10.3 at the moment.
    3. The BlackBerry Assistant looks interesting and quite accurate.
    4. The HUB. It just keeps getting better!!

    Cons:

    1. The thing the bothered me the most was the font dimensions felt skewed to me, mainly in the CB app where the text looked very small compared to 10.2.1. Well, it's designed for the Passport, right?
    2. Hate the global search which I use a lot. The assistant is nice if you use it, but if you want to type your searches it's very cramped.
    3. The text message box feels so cramped. I know it expands, but not sure why they needed to put other stuff in the texting box which looks and feels jammed and small.

    I went back to 10.2.1 after playing with it a few days. The font issue was a deal breaker for me. And the funny thing is I haven't seen anyone else mention it so maybe it was just my OCD.

    One of the biggest improvements is the android runtime. Much better than 10.2.1

    There is a lot of potential in other areas as well, but like it was mentioned before we don't have the finished product yet, plus we won't officially get the 10.3 till 10.3.1 for all other devices. Which will have more changes, like black hub.

    Pros:
    1) better android runtime
    2) extra row of icons
    3) blank homescreen
    4) multiple pages for apps now available in folders
    5) hub triage

    Cons:
    1) keyboard 'flick' not working well on my device on lower keys
    2) unable to delete amazon app store

    Ya text size is an issue for me too. You have to think though that most UI issues will be fixed since they are things the developers will notice too.

    I wonder too if these builds are intended for the passport and hence some issues running them in z and q series phones.

    That's the way it felt to me, which is why I'm really looking forward to 10.3.1 which will be for the phones already out there.
