    I'm contemplating going android, or waiting for Verizon to release 10.3 to see how it runs android apps. 10.2 runs android HORRENDOUSLY. To the point where I've pretty much deleted all android apps from my BlackBerry 10.

    So for those with similar experiences, does 10.3 run android apps more smoothly?

    Except a few many Androids run very smooth.
    You can use Gmap patch help to patch some Android applications but most of applications run without issue.
    But again remember BB10 is not Android OS

    Most of my Android Apps run pretty smoothly... but I don't remember 10.2.1 being all that bad either.

    But there are still some that won't work or that require a lot of "work" to get them to function.. so that has to be factored in, along with the possibility that any hacks or patches we have today, might not work tomorrow.

    I have a Passport and a oneplus one. As I feel both phone are speced the same I think it's a good comparison. The Passport will run most of the Android apps I use without issue. There are a couple that have issues with the Google play services but only a couple for me. I would say the oneplus has a better overall feel running the apps as it should but the passport is excellent as well. For the apps that don't require Google play it's hard to see a difference between the two phones.

    Same I actually don't remember which ones are active and which aren't. And the ones I do know because of performance they are OK to only occasionally do the mess up. So I don't know if op is being over dramatic or what. I really don't see an app problem at all.

    So go with what ever platform you want

    Yes. But it's still half-assed without Google play.

    All the Android apps I'm using have always been running smoothly for me. Can't say they run better or worst but I notice a few new features like you have 3 choices for zooming with Android apps.

    After upgrading to 10.3.1 some of the android apps that didn't work before is now working. And I noticed a substantial improvement in the load time of the android apps.

    The apps I've tested so far on my Z30 load a bit faster and run a bit smoother. Overall, there was an improvement.

    Can you tell me which apps you know didn't work on 10.2 but now work on 10.3? Thanks.

    The only Android app that stopped working was my Navy Fed bank on 10.3.1 OS. Everything else runs the same. A bit slow to start up and lags here and there.

    I find the zooming feature very useful. Combined with the Lucky Patcher, it seems like I can use all lot more aps.
