    So I am considering to get rid of my Android and go with an BlackBerry Z10. This because I already have a PlayBook and want to experience the BB10.
    Now I want to know, what are the main things I will miss over Android/iOS (I went from a iPhone 5 to a Sony Xperia)

    The most things I use are;

    Mail, Whatsapp, Waze (Navigation, if you don't know), Internet Browser (on the moment Chrome), ING (Banking App), Twitter and the Top Eleven App.

    I really don't care about games and stuff, but the email and browser experience should be outstanding.

    Do you advice the Z10 or should I stick to the Android?

    Thanks!

    Not sure about the banking app but everything else you listed is on bb10 except for top 11.the browser is way better than chrome and email is where bb is market leading. Given your requirements I'd definitely recommend the Z10.

    its an awesome phone, you won't regret it. The app developers for the banking app might develop an app if you ask for one alot of banks have already developed apps for BB10, when their client asked for it.

    Is Waze sideloaded or a native app already?

    For the ING app, not available yet (confirmed it's coming native to the BB10) but the sideloaded android one works perfectly on the Z10 and the Q10. I advise you to go for the Z10, give yourself time to get familiar with it after few days you will love it.

    It's an android port, but available in BlackBerry World.

    I second this as well. Familiarize yourself with the navigation before making the purchase. A lot of folks have gotten confused because there is no button. YouTube has many videos about navigation.

    I also had an Android device for its features until I realised that I really don't use 90% of my phone ( I use the navigation once a year, I used the camera only on the normal mode, I did not use the google now voice control etc) and switched to Q10 (after using the S3 for about a year). And I have to say that I am amazed by the BBOS 10. You should buy a BlackBerry and you will not be disappointed

    Navigation is not a direct dealbreaker, because I think that the guys at Waze are already developing for BB10...

    Well that's the same thing I'm experiencing... No need of all the crappy apps, I only want some decent apps and a smooth running OS...

    iOS and Android can say that they have a ton of apps, how many are really effective?!

    Well, I had few apps installed on my S3 :Instagram-still have it on q10 via sideloading: dictionnaire Larousse-sideloaded; romanian dictionary-sideloaded; chrome browser-no need of it, as the BlackBerry broswer is better;tunein radio-available on BB World; FB - pr-install on os 10; twitter-preinstalled : Foursquare - preinstalled; dropbox-available on Os10, but switched to Box as BlackBerry gives free 10 gigs of space and automatic photo upload (like Dropbox on Android); google currents - not available on BlackBerry ( i use the browser, unfortunently); whatsapp - available on BlackBerry (without the option to select and send more than one image at the same time; hopefully we shall receive this feature in an update); Viber - coming soon on BlackBerry ; yahoo messenger (is much better on BlackBerry than on Android); shazam (it's alternative, soundcloud is also coming soon on BlackBerry); doodle jump (working perfectly via sideloading), google translate (sideloaded, working perfectly); google maps (sideloaded; working fine, stable most of the tine); youtube ( much better on BlackBerry 10; even if it is not a native app and I have to use the browser, I strongly prefer the BlackBerry app, as I can use it in background while running other apps or with the screen locked; on Android it was always getting paused no matter what) and skype (working very well on BlackBerry) . And I think these are all the apps I had on BlackBerry... I might have missed one of two, but you understand my idea .

    Not only that, I also found out that Android is kindda laggy... also if you check all the apps that run in the background with no sense at all...

    All kind of services I don't freakin' need...
