Pros: Nice screen size, durable, replaceable battery, time shift camera, flick typing with very good word/thought prediction, Neutron HiFi music player, speakerphone, blinking notification light, improved browser, decent browser, and Hub is a good concept.
Cons: Desktop software, clunky OS and keyboard, battery life, apps, visual voicemail, lock screen notifications, auto dials, music player, unlocking, cutting and pasting, jittery videos, no docking cradles, micro-USB, alarm clock, and cheap materials.
Summary: 1. Contacts keep messing up. It will switch back and forth from Facebook contacts to AT&T address book even if you turn off the Facebook. 1.b. And then, you can't get your full contacts. It cuts off the ones on the bottom. 2. THE RINGTONES / TEXT NOTIFICATIONS- it decides how it wants to notify you. It decides which tone no matter what you set up. Luckily it will go to vibrate if you say vibrate, but anything audio, forget it. 3.
Pros: very clear screen
Cons: ever changing contact list , broken notifications , no adobe flash , no scroll in music player , 50% blackberry apps non-compatible
Pros: very fast and has a great camera and will connect to the web through my router
Cons: deleting email has to be done one at a time---no choice of when or what email to down load---input of information to contact information complicated. no option to send email to junk or block unwanted mail.
Summary: Pros: The Blackberry Hub we know and love. I miss the tactile keyboard very much but nevertheless this is a great phone for texting. It is intuitive as it says. Words hover over the letter and you just swipe up to place them in your message. Not as fast as using a real keyboard but still very good. It allows you to add words to your dictionary which is a nice feature too. Cons: Everything else.
Summary: These phones are very easy to use (if it is not rebooting every 5 minutes) and has very nice features. However, they randomly shut off and turn back on (if you are lucky). I have had 4 of them die on me completely. Battery life is ridiculous (doesnt even last 1 day without charging it). Lack of applications!
Pros: design ease of use
Cons: battery life lack of apps random shut offs , phone burns out , lack of support from bb

Pros: Security, I think...
Cons: UI not very intuitive. When I first put my hands on an iPhone, the UI seemed to make sense. Not the same feeling with the Z10 interface. Cannot use apps from the previous OS versions, why have a mini HDMI connector on when WIFI or NFC are trending?
Pros: * Some unique Ideas and interesting concepts, the Hub especially is a good idea * The phone itself has really nice build quality and finish
Cons: * OS crashes regularly * Battery life is awful * Touchscreen sporadically 'misses' touches * Phone loses the aility to connect to some BluTooth devices if you don't reboot it every couple of days
Summary: I initially wrote a review with a five star rating given my initial enthusiasm for the Z10 (Verizon), based on the size of the screen, gesture based operating system (rather than a home button) with the Hub and Peek, removable battery, advanced keyboard, etc. However, as I gained experience on the device, it became apparant to me that this is a really challenged phone for the following reasons: - Clunky BB10 operating system that doesn't work smoothly, and is frustrating...
Cons: I want function and it does not sync with outlook from phone to computer. The last BB 9650 that I had did sync both ways. I don't like that on the browser the previous links are always there unless you go in and delete history.
Summary: Before you buy, please make sure which model you are buying. Not all the Blackberry Z10 will work on 4G or LTE in the United States. And there are 5 different Models. The Balckberry Z10 [Model: RFH121LW] will NOT WORK with T-Mobile USA. And people is buying careless. And the STL100-1 has a slower processor manufactured by Texas Instruments, while the STL100-2, STL100-3, STL100-4 do have the Qualcomm Snap Dragon. The seller does no explain which model is selling.
