    I get great battery life on my Q10 and Classic, so I don't understand your point of view..

    Talk to any Z10 owner and they will tell you that battery life is moderate and nothing spectacular. Granted this is due to the small battery in the Z10, however the QNX Kernel isn't any more "efficient" than Android or iOS in terms of battery life or needing lower hardware specs than the competition.

    i expect it from a Z10 not a Z30 though. I've had my Z30 for several months, been using it hardcore and still get great battery life and no slow downs like i did with my Z10. I'll have 5-7 apps on the Z30 open and it still zips. Good question for you though, is it native apps that slow down and crash on your phones or is it android ports? IF you use more android apps than anything- then that is your Achilles heel.. no matter what BB10 phone you use... ok maybe not the PP but i could be wrong.
    The battery life on this is great compared to the garbage battery on the Z10 (which I was charging by noon every day). I'll grant that it's generally Android apps that crash (or cause a crash to all open apps), but the OS in general lags even if I have no Android apps open.

    Just out of curiosity is there any trick to speeding things up? I don't think my memory is close to capacity or anything like that.

    In my case there are two things that restore snappy performance:

    1) A clean - destructive - OS install every few months; worked well on both my Q10 and my Z30.

    2) A full reboot every few days.. I have noticed a memory leak issue with the hub where after about a week, it's using so much RAM that the browser and other apps keep closing.

    YMMV, but these things work well for me.

    .
    1) back up and "reload OS" using Link?

    2) Yeah, this I've done out of habit since OS4 days.

    see the thing is, when you think you have no android apps open in the background, the runtime says otherwise. it acts just like the android OS and keeps apps you regularly use in the forefront and essentially in memory. many claim apk app killers do the trick but these are more harmful to your system than good. just the fact that you have certain apk's installed will eat memory. IM+ i will testify again runs when it wants to in the background in the runtime of your BB10 phone.

    i like to use android apps sparingly on special cases so i install said apps, use them then uninstall when i'm done (Kakao, Skype, Kik, etc.) If you do not uninstall them, they'll always be running in the back... not all of them but the ones i just mentioned yes. I understand some of these android apps are used on a constant basis by some people and well to those i will just say look at the slider as it will solve that problem 100% for ya.

    Anyway, that's kind of the trick i've been using with my Z30 that i didn't do with my Z10... i loaded the snot out of that thing with android apps and games and that's why it bogged down and crashed a lot of and yeah i'd be recharging by 11:30. With my Z30 i'm more cautious and it runs runs for days.

    I have opted not to backup and restore, for fear of backing up and restoring whatever it was that slowed things down. I would think if you're sparing in what you backup and restore, it would probably do it.

    And yes, I do use BlackBerry Link to do the full OS reinstall.

    I also remember having to reboot the OS <= 7 devices constantly too.

    It is going to be gorgeous. Cannot wait for it to be released. However, it may not be the only new BBerry released though.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. Kind of defeats the whole purpose of having the Android Runtime in the first place.

    Yeah, I have quite a few Android apps I use daily, so that's not really an option. Sounds like the Slider (if it's as expected) will be exactly what I need. Although I hope bit feels as close as possible to BB10 in operation.

    I will buy one as soon as they get the device to market and I hope it's more sooner then later!! I sure hope they don't drag their feet on this one like the original release of OS10 and the z10.
    Really lol JC hasn't dragged anything he out there hustling putting devices out from left to right I just hope that bb10 os keeps getting updates since he's still selling bb10 devices and I have a few of them it will suck if they just stop supporting them. The Slider is going to be a nice phone not sure if I want one though we will just have to wait and see

    If we take the Passport as the 1st Generation and the "Silver Edition" as the 2nd Generation. Then it seems logical that the Classic 2 would have the same specs as the original but maybe slimmer bezel? Just some cosmetic refinements.

    I think many users like the form factor of the classic and the bright display. Now if it would run Android, had slimmer bezels and a stronger CPU and maybe a replaceable battery and OIS I would consider buying this instead of the slider.

    By that theory it's already released. Classic 2 is Classic in Blue and Bronze.

    I haven't found uninstalls of Android apps to be 100% effective to restoring battery life and remedying slowdowns; bits and pieces are left behind that only disappear through a destructive OS reinstall. But granted, your suggestion should yield better results than leaving the apps installed.

    Have you uninstalled through BB10 or through Ghost Commander? I find GC does a better job.

    Through BB10 I'd uninstall then reboot, just to find the app still there and I'd have to uninstall it again. GC does it one shot.
