    I left my Z10 for a Samsung Galaxy Note3, I don't know why but the Z was just annoying me battery was a massive issue didn't want to take a chance on the Z30 so I splashed 549 on a brand new Galaxy Note3 from the Carphone Warehouse. I loved it the apps were perfect SwiftKey is better than the stock BB10 keyboard, only because it's on a bigger screen maybe but still. I like Google a lot.. There apps are amazing and although I like stock Nexus Android I wanted a high spec monster. So I bought one. BBM is nowhere near as good like nowhere at all close. It may look the same however it feels built for BB10 which it is I suppose. But yeah its usable I miss the hub. Oh the hub. It's way better shame it wasn't push twitter notifications, properly anyway. That's the thing that frustrated me about my Z10 it had the potential but just wasn't there everything was coming... But never came the temptation for the Google play store became unreal, every app is better with the exception to BBM, Twitter and Facebook blow BB10's versions out the water like seriously BB10's Facebook was crap. And although Touchwiz is nowhere near as polished as BB10 it's usable and you have the option of Nova Launcher and rooting so I'm happy. The S Pen is amazing like seriously I never thought I'd use it. But wow. The screen again wow. That's the thing the features are wow. BB10 was good but not good enough. I mean on this you can scroll with your eyes, pause videos by closing your eyes. Scroll through pictures without touching the screen and even with all these features the battery is amazing if I'm on it non stop for 2 and a half hours I'm down to 80% would have killed my Z. I don't know maybe BlackBerry will recover I hope it does as I like the look of the Passport not enough to buy it.. Yet. Miss you guys here at Crackberry might start posting again.

    There you have it. Some people want "high spec monster"s and others want a messaging powerhouse. My husband has a Note3. The kb sux.

    Have fun with your choice!

    Really cuz I prefer to close my eyes and hope it catches instead of tapping pause. Lol

    Somebody got pulled in by the marketing gimmicks, don't feel bad Samsung does spend a crazy amount of $ on it.

    Thanks for the honest feedback.

    I hope you give BlackBerry another chance in the future. Some features are admittedly underdeveloped, while I feel others beat the competition. I personally don't find eye-scrolling to be as essential as proper message handling.

    But, if BlackBerry continues at their incredible pace, they will surely match all of Samsung's and Google's features, and offer their own on top of it.

    Good to see you still checking in!

    Thanks for the non negative feedback I will continue to post and maybe just maybe I might buy a Passport as my secondary device.

    Glad you have found what works best for you and thank you for your post about your experience. I did go looking at phones to see what was out there but my Z10 rocks it best for me.. Battery could be better but I carry a power bank so that is how I get around that. All the best I'll be curious to see what you have to say in 6 months. Rocking 24-7 with my Z10 & 64GB PlayBook
