    How is your android app experience? I'm currently using a Z10 but I'm seriously considering buying a BlackBerry passport when it's going to be released in September. I'm just wondering how the apps work on a 1:1 screen ratio.

    It has been rumoured that 10.3 will bring some sort of landscape mode to 1:1 devices. Currently that is a bit of an issue, because some Android apps do not scale properly, or need landscape mode for stuff like full-screen playback.

    That is the only major difference in app performance I can think of.

    Thanks! I'll wait for the official experience with 10.3 to make my final decision, but I really appreciate your input!!!

    The one banking app that I needed to use did not work on my Q10 but was fine on my Z10 for remote deposit. Other than that I did love the device.

    Not all apps work properly, you have better chance in compatibility with Z10 and Z30.

    Good so far. I don't play any android games on my Q10 so I can't comment on performance there. I use Tumblr, Instagram, Imgur, Amazon, UStream and Google Translate a lot and they all work great.

    It works fairly OK, except when you try to use it through HDMI and can't get it to full screen like Youtube does, which is a shame.

    My experience with the five Android apps I use on my Q10 has been mostly very nice!

    Here are the Android apps I use.

    Dear people who rock a Q10...-img_20140619_234249.png

    They all work like they are supposed to with very few issues.

    Paypal: "Setting" icon on the left edge of the screen is only half showing. The icon is still clickable and once you are in the settings menu everything is fine. You won't access settings that much and you have plenty of the settings icon showing to click.

    Kakaotalk: Everything works except "enter to send" does not work, but it used to work before the latest BlackBerry 10.2.1.2941. However, I can still send the messages by clicking on a on screen send button.

    While the apps I use will not be the ones that you use necessarily, it gives you an idea of what kinds of things you might have to sacrifice such as some aesthetic icon only half showing, or having to use an on screen button to send a message.
    Most Android apps work fine, except you will have some small quirky issues like I mentioned above.


    As for games, I have never played a game on a smartphone in my life, so I cannot say (on any phone really) lol.

    Download Apollo. Works better than Pandora and is a native app.

    Netflix works good. Spotify also works good as well as ebay and amazon shopping app. No complaints.

    Well for some apps it's a...scrolling experience!

    Also some apps (especially those with ads) leave just a small piece of screen for the actual app screen as top lone is usually some menu and bottom line the ads/menu as well...

    It ain't perfect but I'm not an app person so totally fine as is.

    Apollo doesn't work since 10.1. That update ruined it. Would stop after a song or two

    TuneIn Radio (prefer the Android version as it has the channels I want)

    LINE (Very popular in Asia)

    I play no games on the Q10, mostly messaging/emails etc. The major draw for me to get it was the android app support, which is pretty decent for me. My banking app works, and im happy with it.

    My hope is they can somehow tweak the "Slide from bottom left up diagonally" to get to the previous screen gesture for Android apps, coz I always get to the main screen accidentally

    I categorically refuse to pervert my Q10 with Android anything. I have a Android tablet (galaxy note pro) which admittedly has a lot of cool features but it also has all the issues known to Android including some serious lagging and keyboard problems.
    My Q10 is pure Blackberry and works like a charm, I intend to keep it that way
