    So I had the latest leak of 10.3 installed on my Q10. I have reverted back to official 10.2.1. Overall the every day performance of the OS was very very slow and laggy.

    Now the best and worst feature on this OS was Assistant. The voice part of it was awesome. Only thing I'd like to see is maybe a hardware key press to launch it from the lock screen like an iphone.

    What I hated: Whenever I started typing commands from the home screen, it would have to launch the assistant application, followed by my command slowly getting entered into assistant. This was very frustrating because before it was just start spotlight searching my whole phone. So now even when I had to type, "Call John", it would have to open assistant for that. Veeeeery annoying. Passport users are you experiencing this? Or have they changed it with the official OS?

    From the Lock Screen, or any screen, you can launch Assistant by long pressing the hardware Mute key (between Volume keys), just like you could use Mute to launch Search prior to 10.3.

    sounds like there is a lag on the q10 leak? the assistant launches as well and goes straight into searching the phone... however it's a much smoother experience on the passport. no lag.

    Actually you couldn't use it in lock screen because it'd have to unlock device first. With 10.3.1, you can use it locked

    I thought you can use BlackBerry Assistant when the phone is locked, but only via a bluetooth headset (or your car)...

    Yeah that's what I thought when I read this, but it looks like assistant won't work when locked UNLESS the phone is connected over Bluetooth
    I loved & hated Assistant on leaked 10.3-img_20150107_110212.png

    Yes, this is my biggest issue with 10.3. I wish I could run 10.2.1 on my Passport. Sorry to say it, but the new assistant app basically has ruined the universal search in 10.3 and beyond. Really rotten OS, now.

    In my experience, it can be pretty temperamental.

    So it was working great and fast just a second ago. But now, I can't even get to the search function. Keystrokes are registering and opening the app, but not recording...stuck at the Assistant professor part of this stupid dual-function app.
