    Good afternoon.

    I'm trying to decide between a Z10 and a Nokia 928. I know this is a Blackberry forum so responses may be a little biased. We're pretty much Windows with our computers (and Xbox One) and android with our phones. Looking to make a switch and just was looking for some input to help with my decision.

    As a biased BlackBerry Z10 user, I would recommend this device to everyone! Haha. Honestly though, the OS compared to android is definitely something worth experiencing. The keyboard is the best on the market today, and with the ability to directly load Google Play applications, this phone definitely has a lot to offer.

    I was considering the same choices not too long ago. What steered me away from the Lumia was that I had read in the various blogs that the Zune player / experience was somewhat similar to the lock-in experience that the iPhone is famous for. Also, the windows phone OS doesn't sync directly with outlook, it requires some sort of cloud interaction, which to me has no advantage over the Z10 nor any other phone for that matter. There were other issues at the time, such as which WPOS version on wbich phone had compatible apps and so on. For myself, the Z10 with whatever version of the BB10 was more straightforward in all aspects, more or less.

    You should go to the store and use both. Maybe one will jump out at you. Also try watching some YouTube videos on both to see what there all about.

    I have a lumia 521 as a toy/extra music player and while I can say it is different I am not a fan, the tiles are not for me.

    I would go to the store and try them both out, I for one am not a fan of the OS.

    I have both the Z10 and the Lumia 928. I use the Z10 for work and the Lumia is my personal phone. The Lumia has a much better camera, offline maps (better map functionality in general), battery that lasts longer, and more of the big name apps (without side loading or downloading apks). With WP8 you get great integration with Office and Sky drive, which may be a big deal for you of you use them.

    BlackBerry 10 as an OS destroys WP8. PIM and multitasking on BlackBerry 10 is much better, the browser is excellent compared to Internet Explorer, and the virtual keyboard is the best out there. The Z10 got a bad rap at launch, but it's a much better phone now, especially if you're running 10.2.1.

    If you can, I'd try both and see what works for you. While I like the Lumia, I find myself using the Z10 more and more.

    I think hardware wise, the edge goes to the Lumia.

    Nokia hardware is excellent, their mapping service is top itch, their camera is miles better and the phone design is very attractive.

    I think in matters of software, the Z10 is clearly superior. The design is nice, and the hardware is nothing to scoff at, it feels Strong.

    But yes, walk into a store, play with both. And make the right decision for yourself.

    In the meantime I'll dream of a world filled with BB10 powered Nokia phones.

    I have the 928...go with the z10. I really like the windows interface...I find it sleek and sexy...BUT...it gets boring fast. nice thing, you can get one for 150 on ebay so maybe get both. Lol. I used the z10 as my daily driver and swapped out the 928 for when I needed the change. I have since upgraded to the z30 for my DD.
