    I can live with z10 boot time, but it's really scandalously slow.

    Why hasn't anybody mentioned the ridiculous boot time of BB10. My Z10 it takes something in order of 5 minutes to boot and I think that is something the Blackberry engineers should be ashamed of.
    I know people use their phones differently, but how often do you guys reboot? I try to reboot maybe once a month just to clean things up, but boot time isn't even something i consider anymore (was different back in the 10.0 random booting days).

    What I like about BlackBerry:

    - The Hub
    - Active Frames
    - Best keyboard (both physical and virtual)
    - LED indicator
    - External speaker quality
    - Ability to run Android apps

    What I like about Windows Phone:

    - Live Tiles
    - Integration with Microsoft services (Microsoft Account, Outlook.com, OneDrive, etc.)
    - DAT CAMERA (on Nokia phones)
    - Ability to do a lot with minimal resources (Lumia 521 only has 512 MB of RAM and it runs surprisingly well)
    - More and better native apps than BB10, with more on the way
    - Greater variety of handsets to choose from
    - It's now supplanted BlackBerry as the 3rd most popular platform, and is gaining momentum and support across the globe

    About 1-1/2 minutes from shut down to finish of reboot.

    I have a Lumia 920 and a Z10. The Lumia is built like a tank. The battery life is really good, the phone operates quickly and smoothly and the Camera is great. Windows 8 is still quirky and very limited on options and apps.
    The Z10 has better sound quality and I think just a better phone in most any situation. I swap between the 2 phones just for a little variety but use the Z10 MUCH more often. BB10 OS is just light years ahead of windows 8 in my opinion.

    I keep swapping between my L920 and my Q10, so I might not be much help. But, as much as I agree with the extensive reviews of others in this thread, I think the best advice is coming from those who are telling you to test drive the devices you're looking at on either OS.

    You can find wp 8 phones on ebay for <$100, and probably make your money back if you don't like it.

    Mine takes nowhere near 5 minutes. Maybe 1.5 to 2 minutes to boot. Sure, it is nowhere near Windows phone levels, but much faster than my old BB7 device and way faster than the PlayBook.

    Hey, i come from a lumia 800 and my choice for the new phone is between a Z10 and a lumia 925. I really like both, my question is if Z10 and bb10 is as fast and fluent as windows phone, because i've never seen a OS faster than wp. I know the pros of the lumia are the camera, i also like more the amoled screen and 8.1 seems great, but i'm curios about bb10 and want to try it. my doubt is only the "reliability" of the os, if bb10 does have problems and lags like android after few months, because is the thing that i hate most in a phone, or is like wp, fast and stable. Thanks to anyone who will answer
