    I made a thread about how the classic specs are a blessing in disguise ( http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...sguise-983854/ ) and I had a few people tell me you need high specs to run android apps and games which is FALSE!!!!!!

    The Z10 uses the same 1.5 dual core s4 with adreno 225 found in the classic and plays some big time android games I've attached a few links to youtube showcasing this and most of the videos the person is using 10.2 or 10.2.1 and the games play I would say 98% smooth

    So all those people who just talk nonsense about we need high end specs to play android games don't know crap!!

    I am just sick and tired of this spec talk nonsense and how we need it run android games and apps properly when that is not the case at all what matters is the android runtime optimization within BB10 not the specs

    Please watch the videos below and remember he is using a Z10 and uses 10.2 or 10.2.1 not even 10.3.1 .....

    Remember people I am telling you 10.3.1 will make it even better in terms of running games and apps however it is not ready yet fully since it does have some bugs on it and needs to be optimized a lot more. I would NOT recommend it as your daily driver.

    Thank you. I got that on my Q before I put official AT&T back, when I was thinking of selling it.
    By the way the only games I play on the train are sudoku, mahjongg, and solitaire. Not exactly intensive. I haven't got any other games. At all. Just care about some basic apps that should not require B I G specs, yet don't work properly.
    Posted from my SEXY Q10 that I'd STILL be using IF I could find my FRACKING BANKING APP on BBW. And no I won't put Android apps here so don't EVEN go there!!!!

    To be honest 10.3.1 is fun and all but it is not ready for the other devices yet. Do not use it as your daily driver. Hence why they pushed it back to February release

    Download amazon app off Amazon site and see if that apk works. Or is that what you did already?

    I'm running 10.3 on my Q10 and the Android apps hang and lag all the time. Some don't work at all (like Snapchat). There is still a lot of optimization that needs to be done.

    my biggest complaint is when using the sirus app on my q-10 using 10.3.1 it constantly freezes. I have to reopen the app to get it started again....it is almost like the app thinks the phone is in standby mode and shuts off....didnt happen on my iPhone and tried it on my friends droid and doesn't happen there either....annoying but wouldn't make me switch back to iPhone.

    Yah that is why 10.3.1 isnt fully ready yet. I have a Z30 and installed why android apps and games run much much better it does have some bugs though hence why I don't use it as my daily driver.

    Yup big time....plus 10.3 though is ONLY for the passport though you should not be running and 10.3.1 is not ready for prime time hence why the February release date....

    Leaks are fine for spare device but you should not be using it on your main device.

    Really? Then why do my few android apps lag and scroll horribly? I am on the latest leak? If it isn't hardware or need for RAM then what is it?

    My Q *is* my spare device. That's why I briefly put 10.3.1 on it, to see what it had.

    You just answered your own question my friend....If games runs smoothly and some apps work perfectly but in other instances some lag or scroll horribly what does that tell you??? If it was hardware related ALLLL games and apps will run poorly not just a "few". That is a software issue and just needs to be optimized that's all that is NOT hardware related.....

    Here yourself which app needs more than 2gb of RAM to run....its an app not a heavy intensive game.....

    For example the Kijiji app ran horrible on 10.2 and with 10.3.1 it runs perfectly and its the same phone....

    You can save it by backing up through BlackBerry Link. So physical backups instead of cloud saves.

    Doesn't need to happen. Apple got their Google apps without it.

    I understand your point, but then again

    Why are my android Apps run A LOT smoother on my passport than they did on my Q10??

    Dont get me wrong higher specs will make a difference to a degree but not entirely. For example Sonic Dash I had it on my Z30 and I've played sonic dash on the passport and they both lag and the specs between the Z30 and Passport is night and day.

    Also you are running 10.3 software as well it makes a difference JellyBean 4.2.2 on 10.2.1 and JellyBean 4.3 on 10.3 They improved the runtime big time.

    I know because when I had 10.2.1 on my Z30 the Kijiji app was very laggy and when I tried 10.3.1 on the Z30 the kijiji app is now smooth as butter. It's all about programming and android runtime improvement not mainly the hardware.

    I'm using 10.3.1 on my Q10 and use it as my daily driver. I don't encounter any bugs or issues and in fact find it much better than 10.2.1 and solves many other issues. I have three Android apps installed and they all work perfectly (no games though as I'm not a gamer). For those who think higher specs solves issues, it doesn't. I have been using a Note 4 for a few weeks and it's not as smooth as BlackBerry 10.3.1 on my Q10. Something as simple as scrolling in the Facebook app is quite choppy on the Note 4 whereas it's silky smooth on my Q10. Instagram on my Q10 also runs very smoothly.

    THANK YOU!!!! When I hand my Z30 for people to play with (that time I had 10.3.1 installed) people were extremely surprised how smooth it is and some said its actually smoother than their android phones some were playing android games and didn't know it was an android game until I told them. I keep on telling people all the time specs is not everything when it comes to performance. People are just blind by this spec race and think it affect the performance of the device entirely and dont think about software especially when the device uses a in house OS and not android....
