Blackberry 10 is THE operating system, and the Q10 is a great mix of classic and modern

Excerpt: This phone is not a phone for someone who relies on apps and whatnot for the majority of their phone use. The communications on this phone are great. Texting, BBM, calling, email, twitter, Facebook, etc. are all viewable from the hub, which saves a lot of time and effort. The screen is smaller but very nice, colours are very sharp and the ability to change the colour temperature is a great addition, makes browsing at night a lot easier on the eyes if set to warm.
Pros: Extremely good battery life, QWERTY keyboard, AMOLED display, BlackBerry hub is very intuitive, New internet browser is fantastic
Cons: Occasionally random restarts due to the back cover, Keyboard tends to double-type after approx. 6 months of use, Apps are not good, even when sideloaded, Texting sometimes glitches, but nothing major
Excerpt: If both hardware & software quality is a factor when you buy a phone go for Q 10, I have been using Blackberry devices for more than 3-4 years and never had any issues with it. Q10 has a great buld quality and its good for multi tasking!!!
Summary: Perfect SMARTphone. You can easily handle daily business with it. It is solid and crafted very well. The phone itself is really cool and unique compared to its competitors (Apple, Samsung, Sony). The keyboard works better than any touch could ever do in my opinion. The only downside is the app store of BlackBerry. There is great room for improvement. Nevertheless I can totally recommend the product.
Summary: The phone was exactly as advertised and shipping was very quick. I purchased the unlocked international version to use with my t mobile prepaid account and it worked great. I plan on using it with a local sim card when I travel to Europe this summer on vacation I'm told this phone will work fine for that. Also it's hard to find a phone with a physical keyboard now days, which for me makes it easier to type.
I was a Galaxy S2 owner and couldn't be happier to make the switch to the Q10.

Summary: I made the purchase around December last year and I've been using the device for a month now, let me pinpoint why I prefer this device over every other phone out there. Good aspects: Motions - I was primary looking for a device that had some sort of motion to skip songs and got what I wanted on the Q10 as you can skip songs by holding the volume up or down button.
