    With the exception of the poor battery life and not being able to get the apps I want, I do love my z 10. My contract ends in July of next year and I wondered what I would go for next, I don't like the z30 or the q10 and I wondered if BlackBerry would update the z 10 to a better equivalent? It kind of looks like this model may be dropped because of the poor sales though, what do you think?

    Hi and welcome.
    If you don't like the Z because of poor battery and apps, then you are on the wrong OS and haven't sideloaded anything yet.
    Which OS are you on? Which apps are you "missing"?
    The Z30 IS the update to the Z10.

    Since your contract ends July next year, I wouldn't start thinking about which phone to buy. Blackberry might release new devices early January next year.

    Z30 is supposed to be the Z10 upgrade (arguably)

    Just sideload apps! You still have a good 7 - 8 months of your Z so I would get comfortable :P I agree, the battery isn't the greatest and if you don't know how to sideload apps or not technically advanced then you are not going to be stuffed!

    I am on 10.2 and I have not side loaded anything yet, it seems a bit complicated? Can you send me a link that shows you how to do side load for less technically minded people? I am looking for Spotify, free sonos my fitness pal and the bbc weather app which I am sure are on android. The z 10 is the perfect size for me, I think the z 30 is too big.

    The Z30 is the upgrade to go with. The battery lasts a lot longer, better display colors, better antenna reception, bigger screen display but not much bigger than the Z10. Whats not to like?

    It's of my opinion these leaked images we're seeing of the "C-Series" is the Z10 successor. Z10 will essentially be dropped off and this new model will take up the helm and allow you to do some of the things you currently can't(such as Miracast). I don't have any sort of insider knowledge but that would be my guess.

    It's too early to tell you what to do for July. At this very second we haven't heard about any new devices, beyond rumors. What we have now is the Z30, which is an upgrade from the Z10. If you want to start looking now, find a place that has the Z30 and go play with it for a while. That will at least give you an idea whether it's a consideration or not. Beyond that anything people have to say here about a new device is just speculation until we start seeing more concrete evidence.

    Maybe you're battery is toast? Have you tried a brand new battery? If not that then maybe a new OS version? I have heard fairly good things about the battery life, and from what I understand it has only gotten better with OS updates.
