    So I was just getting up off the couch and somehow lost grip of my Z10 ...
    Z10 build quality-img_00002243.jpg

    Pretty good size dent taken out of the drywall - oh and not even a scratch on my Z10!
    *Edit: forgot to mention that it bounced off the side of an armchair and hit the base of a table

    Happy for the Z10
    Not so much for the drywall.
    Love this device, solid build quality!

    Your couch is mounted on the ceiling or walls, rather than the floor?

    Hah no I don't even know how it launched out of my hand as I turned to my left (phone was in my right hand) and it flew towards the wall. Armchair is against the wall and to the side of it is a table

    If you take a look at iFixit you will also see that the Z10 gets 8 out of 10 for repairability, and it is only 8 because the socket assembly is so firmly glued into the body. It seems really designed to last and can be fixed as long as parts are available.
    On the other hand, they looked at the new wonder HTC One and discovered that it is virtually unrepairable - they gave it 1 out of 10 - with the battery so buried in the works that it is virtually impossible to replace. That means it has a realistic design life of only 2-3 years before the battery life is unacceptable.
    BlackBerry still seems to employ industrial designers rather than built in obsolescence designers.
