Like many, I'd had enough of waiting for Blackberry ...
5 August 2014
Summary: After several years of being a devoted Crackberry user, I finally drifted away from Blackberry in 2011. Like many, I'd had enough of waiting for Blackberry to release a modern, urbane, forward thinking device. In three years, I tried a myriad of different solutions of all OS's and sizes. The iPhone 4S/5. Nokia's Lumia line. Several Android devices, ranging from the Droid Incredible to the Galaxy Note 2, to the HTC One.
Summary: This phone has a great feel, build quality and screen... however, the OS is confusing and the touch screen is just not responsive or sensitive enough for my taste... Blackberry needs to hire some smart and wise developers who are logical and freedom oriented, so they can reflect refinement, simplicity, effectiveness and genius in their OS. After all, an OS is just as good as the minds of the developers you hire.
Summary: I expected a clean white blackberry Z10 without the verizon brand on my 2nd purchase and I still returned it...The first seller was all the same but was much worse when they just packed everything in a plastic mold that was not even for blackberry and threw in a car charger as a consolation...my advice to all...e-mail the seller first to make sure that they get everything delivered right...

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
Summary: This phone is a unlocked Verizon version, works with 850 mhz (2G) Edge, if you need 3g or LTE only works with 900 mhz band. I live in Honduras and we use 850mhz band (3G), and I can use only 2G.
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
