    Both face up and face down my phone is perfectly flat. Are you guys sure the surfaces you're putting your phone down are perfectly flat? Perhaps grab yourselves a level and check that out.

    Wow, you guys are nuts. Just noticed it and thought I'd ask the simple question.
    People probably just don't care; that doesn't make them "nuts".

    Here is one video explaining why the Z10 was designed NOT to be flat. Go to 2:50 mark in video.

    Maybe the surface you have put the Z10 on isn't truly flat?

    Did you get leveller out and check it?

    Mine was too flat, so I bent it a little so it would be more ergonomic

    No, the back is not flat.. the BlackBerry logo protrudes.. thus it will rock in any direction.
    Now that the mystery is solved, can someone please lock this thread!

    Yeah.. from the ZED on CB10

    My hand isn't flat, and my Z10 is always in my hand...so who really cares? Perfectly flat phones are important if they sit on the table while you use your laptop or landline because your smartphone doesn't quite do the job!

    It could be that the spring loaded NFC contacts are pushing out the backplate a little which may be causing your problem

    I can rock mine side to side very slightly. I am guessing it is because the silver BlackBerry logo is slightly raised.

    Stop being so hostile. Nothing wrong in asking a question. 108 posts, and who has free time?
    I think it's because you insisted on more answers, and the immediate thoughts people have on the thread come to mind.

    Not sure how flat mine is I don't want to put it down

    I noticed when putting my z10 on a flat surface, and then touching the top right and bottom left of the phone, in has a slight movement to it. Is it just me? I realize the camera lens and flash are in the right corner, any thoughts? Ive used many surfaces if you're wondering

    Yeah, tried and noticed it, nothing to worry about thou. Don't listen to some bashing comments, they're just being too serious.

    I have granite counters all over my house and my Z10 is flat as a level on every one of them. Is this a real issue? Honestly?

    Oh no, mine's not flat either...it's OK on the front but rocks on the back, after some experimentation I found if I removed the battery and re-fit the cover it sits OK

    Job done

    For the second time, the Z10 was NOT designed to be flat. Watch this YouTube video. ( Comments are at the 2:50 mark.)



    Not sure why this a big deal? Funny comments though.

    You keep posting that video, but it's as if you haven't even watched it yourself. The front of the Z10 Isn't designed to be flat, but no one here is saying it is. Everyone is taking about the back of the device, which IS supposed to be flat. So saying the front of the device isn't supposed to be flat makes no difference in a discussion about the back of the device.

    Either way, it's a bit of a daft thread, although the OP does have a point, I just don't think it's anything to worry about.

    That's it for me!!!
    I've had enough!!!
    In three years from now I am returning my Zeeeeee to BlackBerry and claim one trillion dollars for not being as a good manufacturer as apple.

    Right.....
    Anyway, too much free time I guess, which is good in my opinion.
