    NOTE: this is NOT an "I'm flaming the 10.3.1 update" thread! Please, no bashing!

    Until all the kinks get worked out, which surely they will - is there a way I can get JUST the newer version of the music player so I can have an EQ?

    If not, can someone suggest a better music player with EQ functionality that I can download - free or paid, I don't care; I just want my music to sound better. Most of the time I listen is when I'm in the work truck and its stereo has very limited EQ settings.

    Thanks!

    I thought 10.2 had it already. But if you want a recommendation for a paid app, neutron.

    The kinks have been worked out... For slate clean installs.

    So backup our apps (minus blackberry runtime), then separately backup your settings, and wipe. You should get rid of all kinks. Reload and enjoy.

    Not really...

    Z10 is not my main device so I can play with it a lot. Loaded the official release clean with autoloader as I always do. No restore from previous versions. Hub often reloads messaging threads multiple times; advanced interactions don't work properly; once I got silent notifications, on the second reload notifications were OK; crazy battery drain on a clean system; phone vibrates after I answer the call, callers asking me what this noise is; one accidental reboot for no reason; camera autofocus still slow; etc.

    Same issues were present in all the leaks, never got fixed.

    10.3.1.2267?

    Because this is the version I'm using and I really have nothing to complain...

    I've tested both 2243 and 2267. No difference, same issues on Z10. Even on clean installation with 0 extra apps. Actually, it doesn't matter what leak version - 1154, 1949, 2072, 2243, 2267... same issues. I start to believe releasing 10.3.x on older devices is a mistake.

    P.S. Forgot about the worse thing - UI lag. All 10.3.1.x OS versions start lagging badly after about a day of use. Some fellas recommend to wait for the OS to "settle", but in fact it gets even worse. The lag is most visible on full of icons screens when you swipe quickly left or right. The more "loaded" screens you have, the worse it gets. 10.2 versions are constantly smooth.

    Neutron player - only 3 bands of EQ and what has got to be the most godawful interface I've ever seen in my life. How did this app get 4.5 stars?

    Not my experience at all. Upgraded to when it came out. Still very happy, no issues at all.

    If it's true, it makes things even worse. That means the hardware we have called "BlackBerry Z10" was produced with quite significant differences in terms of quality. If the software is fine, than must be the device. We have about hundred threads with legitimate complaints created in just few days. You must be one of the lucky ones.

    My mistake/mistype, 4 bands of EQ. Doesn't make up for the abysmal user interface. It's horrible. It's like a nightmare of Winamp, on a phone. And I know I'm not the only person that feels this way, after reading in the forums about it. Oh, well..

    No problem, we all have our preferences. I would not even contemplate saying you're wrong, I have my likes, you have your likes. The UI is very cluttered, I agree. But once I get what I needed set, that is pretty much the last time I go into the settings.

    None of my Z10s exhibit that behaviour. All running smooth as silk. STL100-3.

    No HUB, notification, battery, vibrate, advanced interaction issues at all either.

    Neutron player is way better than the stock music player, especially when using high end headphones.
