Hey L4P,
I think about buying a new mobile phone, but neither want a Samsung or a HTC (there are just to many of them). The Iphone is to expensive for me (here in germany it is unbelievable how expansive that phone is) and as I always loved Blackberrys I decided it is probably the way to go.
But as I googeld it, I found many negative things about the apps. Not really enough, some of them don't work, .....
I really hope that someone can help me out with his experiences and if there are still so many problems with the apps or if it is solved until now.
For all that don't know that phone:

Thanks!

Dont get it, I came from an iPhone 4 16gb, which was getting slow with the new OS and I also needed more room for music so i was in the market for a 32gig iPhone but the 4s was put down to 16gig only, so instead of getting an iphone5 I was either gonna wait for the galaxy s4 or get the z10, the s4 didnt have a release date and i loved the keyboard on the blackberry so i got it.
  • The Appstore is horrid. No official netflix app/pandora app, the youtube app it comes preinstalled with is just a link to the website.. im surprised there was a facebook app. You are stuck with sidebooting google play apps from android which dont work very well.

  • the phone randomly reboots its self 1-2 times a day, especially when using the gps.

  • Doesnt work with my car audio. my aftermarket system says N/A Device when i plug it into the head unit usb port. So I cant use the pandora functions on my head unit or access the music on the phone without using auxilary which will not give me display of the songs on the dash.

  • Twice now the phone has froze up and quickly heated up to the point that where it was burning to the touch both on the screen and on the back, which makes you need to do a battery pull. *Major fire hazard i'm thinking"

  • the voice control doesnt access music. Dumb, Dumb mistake.

But god, i love the keyboard.

Get an s3/note/s4 or an iphone.

I have a q10, so far it works great. I am not big on apps and mainly use it for email, phone calls and text messaging. I am Canadian though so I'm probably biased.

Thanks a lot! A big help for me, I thought they had fixed that app problem as most of the things i read were pretty old, but as I now read that, I'll have to look for another phone. Still don't want to go for a Samsung, so I guess I have to save money for an iPhone :D

That'll not be the way I use the phone. Still thanks for your help-

I have it and I'm not a fan over even the Iphone 4s.

Bluetooth headset I use to drive with won't keep a clear connection even if the phone is in my pocket. Voice control will not access music or even connect without internet which is insanity. Camera is meh compared to the iphone (I take a lot of pictures and videos)

Getting used to it but damn I miss some of the apps.
