    My summary is: It functions and runs like an iphone style fluidity but with the openness of an android ecosystem.
    I started on an Iphone, moved to Android when the screen size was not big enough, and moved to Blackberry when the Android started to become laggy.
    Here are some key comparison take aways that I found might be useful, this is based on real life day to day usage:

    4 months of use on Z30 and the verdict?-screen-shot-2014-06-13-7.36.23-pm.png
    I love gadgets and consider myself a recreational power user and I try to use all available features, dev/beta testing aside, in real life the Z30 has become the phone I'm dependent on, this is especially true for I no longer have to worry about being tethered to a power socket and this makes a huge difference, especially when I'm on a work trip. This is my candid take on the 3 phones, you may see it differently but to me the winner is obvious. Happy phone hunting!

    Good news, there are rumors on the money thread (links from German website) that an upcoming all touch device from blackberry will have a desktop mode! Linux app ecosystem as well! Qnx is fully POSIX compliant so native stuff will run as well.

    Apple and Google should take note of this leak so they can start copying this idea now.

    BB10 Native
    Android 4.3
    Linux apps
    Adobe flash.

    Are people still saying "no apps". Keep up the good work BlackBerry. The world will wake up eventually.

    Mobile computing at its finest!!

    Interesting comparison OP!

    It saddens me, that the 'big' media which mold tendencies are negative towards BlackBerry and BB10...

    If you had rooted your note 2 & installed a custom rom, you would have released its true potential...

    Sammys are known for mega crapware.

    I see your point but why should anyone have to root then install a custom ROM just to get rid of bloatware? And how many joe schmoe users know how to do that? I had no problem removing the bloatware from my carrier on my BlackBerry.

    fyi rooting only, allows you to remove bloatware...

    The process rooting/custom rom-ing isn't too difficult... anyone that can read and follow basic instructions can do it.

    The majority of the herd are happy with what they are given. Others look for excellence and do not settle for mediocrity...

    The app gap is still the big issue.

    Thing is, Google does a lot of integration with crap like Google Music. One guy at work uses so much crap (that I think is pointless) that it is unbelievable. He'll never leave Google.

    My only experience is that the Z30 runs things much smoother. Makes sense since it is a newer phone. The Disney world app that gives wait times for rides is a perfect test for this.

    Frankly, the Disney World app is written like complete crap.
