    Wow I don't get what lags you guys are talking about. I use the 10.3.1 on my Q10 and it works really well. No hiccups and very smooth going, although initially it did lag but after doing a factory reset and restoring my apps it worked like a charm. Only thing I can comment about it are the Icons, wish they could be resized. I especially like the added options in 10.3.1 to reduce data usage such as downloading only Headers or limit email sizes downloaded on each refresh.

    Although there are somethings I don't get such as the browser and the Battery Saving option. The browser doesn't seem to have an option to switch to Mobile mode as all the websites I open are full desktop layouts and also when I switch to battery saving mode I see no reduction in performance as that should be expected. Any ideas?

    Q10 has 720x720 (518400 pixels) screen. Z10 has 1280x768 (983040 pixels). CPU and GPU are exactly the same. Got now what the difference is?

    I was referring to people using the Q10 and those complaining from other threads.

    I'm thinking about leaving my Z10 on 10.2.2.1609. I've tried all popular leaks and they all have noticeable UI lag. New features are not that important to me. On 10.2.x I'm getting perfectly smooth UI, good enough battery life, best signal reception and better virtual keyboard performance. Also, I don't like the new flat minimalistic candy colored UI. The new OS may have more options, but it makes the phone feel cheap.10.2.x UI is unique with more attention to details.

    Ditto to that. I also dislike the changes made to the calendar when compared to 10.2.1.

    If only I can get 10.3.1 features with 10.2.1 UI. I like the current UI, the mostly flat UI does not interest me.

    But really, custom profiles.

    Also, anyone with 10.3.1 can attest to icon title legibility? Previous OSs have the black frame and it does wonders to legibility. I want that back. Seriously. Unless they implement like text shadows or something that keeps them legible

    There is text shadow. At this point I'm not sure who reads the icon names anymore.
    The UI isn't necessarily flat. It's very clean and gets rid of pointless details in tiny icons while keeping others. If anyone sticks with 10.2 for that you really are missing out on a ton of enhancements and features. Not to mention the updated android runtime. Apps launch ridiculously fast and are very smooth

    None of the new features is critical. LED colors? Flip to mute? Lift to wake? Battery saver that makes already slow phone even slower? New delete in HUB? This is not a TON of new features, it's a minor update. None of the new features can compensate for worse virtual keyboard performance on all touch devices and broken camera autofocus. I know, what we have to play with is just a leak. I'm waiting for the official version to test again.

    Android Runtime is better, it's a fact. But I didn't get a BB10 device to run Android apps. Android devices run Android apps much better, it's a fact too.

    Did you click on the three dots on the right hand side of the browser then select settings then developer tools and make sure desktop mode is off

    I've ran all the leaked versions and I never had any problems you're describing. In fact I've never had anything other than a few hiccups on the 10.3.1 on a Z30.
    Seems you have bugs that can be fixed.

    No bugs on my side. All OS versions tested with clean Autoloader installation. Final decision - my Z10 stays on 10.2.2.1609. If I discover critical for me apps that require 10.3.x OS to run, then BlackBerry goes to the garbage and a new Android device comes in. I would like to use my phone the way I like it, not the way BlackBerry decided is OK for everyone. Case closed.

    I stick with 10.2.2. with my red Z10. Next OS will be Android L on my shiny new Sony Z3 compact in red
    Passport too big, Classic too bad. No way I buy a phone in 2015 with 2012 specs for over 400 euro. Running OS 10.3.1 without flash, can not view some websites.

    You can upgrade to 10.3.0.1154 and keep flash. I have this OS running on my Z30 and my wife's Z10. No problems.

    Not really. Virtual keyboard issues (harder to flick suggested words) and slow inaccurate camera autofocus (especially in low light conditions).

    I can't remember a time where my Z30 camera worked well. It would be nice if they fixed that. I guess I've just gotten used to it. But I do remember my Z10 having some OS builds where the camera worked really great.

    I haven't had the harder to flick words issue. But I can't deny the camera focus and time it takes to shoot a picture is really messed up.

    I really want to stay on 10.2.1 but after seeing all the new features that 10.3 offers. I can't really say no. Plus apparently there is improvement in battery life. So that's good.

    I don't think your bad battery life has anything to do with 10.3.1, mine has been much improved over 10.2.1. Looks like you're either a very heavy user or your battery has a problem.

    Here's what I'm getting although bear in mind I turn off over night.

    It appears as though you are on a Z30, right? That would be the difference.

    Also, a bad battery is unlikely since I get the same life out of my original battery as I do from the one I bought in August of this year.

    Ah sorry I didn't realise you were using Z10. Yes indeed I'm using Z30 so my results are not a correct comparison.

    So you are actually getting worse battery life on 10.3.1 than 10.2.1? If so that's interesting given that one of the 1st things I noticed was improved efficiency and hence battery life on my 30. You would think this improvement would be reflected (relatively) on any BB10 device regardless of the different battery Sizes they have.
