    Hey all,

    I've been a happy camper with the Z30 since launch. However, find myself crawling back to the Q10 every now and then. The size of the Q10 is just perfect. Wish the Z30 was a bit smaller. And that keyboard!

    After using the Q10 for a few days; I miss the Z30's screen and build. So I switch back.

    First world's problems eh?

    I want a high(er) quality Q phone with a larger screen. Is it too much to ask?

    I share your same sentiments.

    I've had my 30 for a few weeks and I'm in love with that phone, but I recently (like yesterday) got a hold of a of a Q10 and this keyboard is addictive. Of course you sacrifice the screen size for this keyboard.

    I have no problems switching off between the two because a simple backup and restore only takes an hour or so of my time.

    With that being said BlackBerry needs to hop on that Coupe concept design. A larger screen and a beautiful keyboard! I threw my wallet at my screen when i saw that thing.

    Far from being a "smaller Z30".

    Very true. Merely alluding to your size issue.

    Same here. I switch between my Q10 and a Galaxy Note 3. Love them both for what they offer.

    A nice BB with a slider would be awesome.

    I'm in a similar situation but with the iPhone 5S and the Q10. Lately the battery woes of the 5S is really annoying me and the fact that I reach out for a charger whenever I get the chance. So I should be going back to the Q10 this weekend, happy days are here!

    I haven't had a physical keyboard phone since the 9900, which I sold in December, 2012. I found thumb-typing on the Z10 to be not that enjoyable. I've had an S4 since last August, and I prefer the cursive feel of the Swype keyboard...but I do miss BB10. So I really have the itch to get a Q10, to experience the hard keyboard again. I'm put off by the stuttering keyboard issues, but if I can find a low enough price I'll probably go for it anyway.

    In particular, I miss my personal shorthand of over 500 auto-text entries, which made text entry very fast and accurate. I find myself wondering whether BB10 predictive text will actually be a hindrance on the Q10. It's one of those questions that can't be answered without just trying it out and seeing how it goes.

    Yup, and I'm hoping for an even better bargain, to offset the stuttering keyboard risk.

    Mine has been fantastic since day one.

    Predictive text hasn't been an issue, either.

    I know what you mean...I have had the Z30 and other high end smart phones, but I always seem to sway back to my Q10. It's just the true BB feel to me.

    I sold my Z30 to get a Q10 and couldn't be happier with my decision. For me, it's all about the size and portability of the Q10, and the battery life is comparable to the Z30.

    When I'm at home, I do long for the Z30 for Web browsing and videos, but now I just reach for my Nexus 7 instead.
