    Is there any way to make Android apps smoother on Z10?
    Facebook and Viber are pretty laggy.

    Installing from 1mobile market, apk files, run and thats it.

    Any suggestion/advice?

    Well, Android apk's are what they are - Android, so it can be a bit hit & miss (Altho' you know BB has it's own FB app., right?).

    If you sideload the 'Snap' app., it lets you download APK's direct from Google Play - I've personally found that the apps I've got from there to be a bit better, altho' they're still not 100% perfect. Might be worth trying.

    It sounds like an oxymoron :-)

    Just kidding. The Android apps I use used to run much better before 10.2.1

    It seems like there has been a performance regression in BB10 in the last several builds. I even did a side by side speed test with a coworker and his 10.1 based Z10 was consistently about 30% faster launching and navigating Android apps.

    Download Noted, my 5-star rated, native BB10 notepad app.

    I have Z10 since 10.2.1.1925 OS.. so apps are still laggy.

    @Stwutter, Ofc I know, but BB Facebook app is bad.. (Lack of options, sometimes loading problems with inbox and notifications, etc..)

    Ok - Well, an option for FB - if the stock app. doesn't like you and you're not worried about hub notifications - maybe to visit the web page via the browser and add that to the home-screen? Just a thought. Good luck regardless.

    Though not a deal breaker for me I am experiencing some of the same lag issues since I upgraded. Apps crashing, not loading, text messages not coming in. I assume this is because of the Sachesi update so I am cool. Hope to see fixes soon.
