5 out of 5 eggsBest Phone You've Underestimated

Pros: Pros: I was an early adopter of the Z10 and purchased as soon as it was available in the US, so I've been using the Z10 for about a year and a half now. As of today, this phone still feels new to me, especially with OS (operating system updates).

Physically: The phone feels great in the hand, with a textured back door that's inviting to touch. The screen display is beautiful and excellent quality. I've dropped the phone more than a few times on hard surfaces and still no cracks. Also, even though I have a privacy screen on my phone, I still get ooo's and ahhh's when showing pictures or video to others. Two cameras (front/back) come in handy and I've taken some awesome shots from several trips and events. There's also a standard mini-USB port for charging, mini-HDMI port which works perfectly with a standard HDMI to mini-HDMI cable. One other major point to note is the microSD (extra memory) slot. In the phone specs, it says up to 32gb capacity, but I can confirm since day one, I've been able to use a 64gb microSD. With the release of upcoming OS updates, this has been tested with a 128gb microSD.

Internally: (understand I'm a bit more techhy than average user). When switching from other phones or even old BB devices, be aware that this new user interface is different but more intuitive. In the first 24-48 hours, you'll be trying to understand how everything works, so don't let it frustrate you. Hearing about hub and flow doesn't truly make sense until you've got the phone set up with your email and social accounts. Then you realize just how beautiful and clean and easy this is to use. Lots of customizable features and options that can help save or drain your battery depending on your personal use. With the latest OS update (10.3...), you will have access to the Amzon App Store as well as Blackberry World (BB's app store). One point of interest is that this Blackberry OS is capable of running Android apps and games as it has technical capabilities to do so. For the curious folks that believe they'll miss their Android apps and games, not true. Crackberry.com has plenty of instructional documents as does Youtube on how to sideload. I personally sideloaded an app called Snap that actually gives me access to the Google store right from my Z10. I can download apps on the go. Also, note that due to Blackberry data packaging technology, you'll consume less data overall compared to other brands. BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) that you've known or heard of, is now even better with voice calling and video calling embedded, plus its available on other platforms. Last but not least, the security that Blackberry is know for is still the best there in the business.

Next to the security, BBM, and fluidity of the device, my favorite feature has to be the ability to upload/download directly to my pc from anywhere. I have cloud storage for when/if I need it, but for true security, I can transfer directly between my Z10 and my pc (or any pc I authorize) secur

Cons: Cons: Every once in a while an app may crash but these are typically Android apps, but wait a few seconds and you're able to restart the app w/o rebooting the phone completely.

Honestly, the biggest issue is not with the phone itself, it's the carriers in the US not rolling out OS updates timely. The rest of the world where Blackberry is thriving receives regular timely updates, while the US carriers lag far behind. This is where Crackberry.com and reading comprehension comes in handy. With a little reading, this issue can easily be overcome by updating the OS using a non-US carrier update. Haven't found any issues doing beyond perhaps having a foreign carrier icon appear in my apps which can easily be deleted. All other functions work perfect.

Other Thoughts: Overall from day one this phone was a good start for the new line of Blackberries, but with each OS update, this phone has become AWESOME! The best part is that there is still so much more potential for this phone to grow and do even more. This phone is a unrecognized diamond.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: best of two worlds with new os update allowing android apps with a direct download. i have downloaded amaz appstore from blackberry world. google play can be installed but as yet it has to be done on a laptop. a how to is on crackberry site. bbhub is always there in the backround. can minimize youtube and it still plays the audio..

Cons: battery goes plenty long using it just as a phone with email and text and talk. use big apps and it will use the battery.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Phone

Pros: Very intuitive
Feels good in hand
Not to big

Cons: Needs a micro sim card
1/4 of storage already taken
All paper work in Spanish

Other Thoughts: Initially I got scared because the sim slot is smaller than my old one but a little research and a pair scissors and now I have a working phone. I know it may sound funny saying its not to big but so many phones any more are just slightly undersized tablets.
I can't remember the last time I got a new electronic that didn't come with with instruction in half a dozen languages so I was little shocked it came with only Spanish instructions but no big deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Subwoofer

Pros: A wonderful addition to my current Bose 201's. Very we'll made box as well as subwoofer. The packaging was boxed twice very neatly. Comes with user manual. The loudspeaker cone is very well made high grade materials. The subwoofer produces solid clean bass can handle anything I throw at it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Make sure to buy an additional subwoofer cable come with one but wish it was a smaller gauge.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid!!

Pros: I have the RFK121LW (STL 100-3) same phone just uses different wireless frequencies.
I love this phone. Call quality is great. Microphone and speaker phone are great.
OS is smooth and doesn't lag. I have owned iPhones, Android phones, symbian, and blackbery phones. This is a great experience for those looking for a serious phone. The hub is great in that all my messages appear in the same place. No more switching back and forth between apps to find messages. The swiping system only takes a couple hours to get use to it. Once you do get use to it, you won't want to go back. There are more and more apps appearing in Blackberry World every day. Skype is already there and so are twitter, facebook, what'sapp, etc...

Cons: It doesn't have all the apps from android and iOS together.

Other Thoughts: Sudoku United is soo addicting lol.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat phone, has potential.

Pros: Solid phone, though it is quite lightweight it doesn't feel "cheap" or inexpensive. Great response time with gestures. The "grip" backing is great so that the phone does not slide off of slippery objects or even if it were lying on the armrest in your vehicle. BB10 is leaps and bounds from its predecessors.

Cons: Lacks major apps. I'm not the biggest app user, however I do expect apps such as skype, viber, or even magic jack. For someone like me who is often overseas, it is beneficial for us to use voip applications to save money. It was a surprise nonetheless to at least not find skype. With more patience this phone will be absolutely rock solid. One last thing is that the full gesture system will take getting used to. One may struggle initially with attempting to press a physical button, while there's none there.

Other Thoughts: For one who needs a more "corporate" and business-tailored device, this phone is absolutley right on the mark. The BES support allows the user to enable the Balance feature, which conveniently separates work and play environments. Gesture system again will take getting used to. This phone is the beginning of the end of the competition.

3 out of 5 eggsONLY USE IF 16gb OF MEMORY

Pros: Solid

Cons: Only uses 16gb physical memory! Max! Does not say anywhere on Neweggs site! My 32 gb of expensive dominator platinum memory is a waste!

3 out of 5 eggsthe listing on this item is wrong

Pros: n/a

Cons: I just wanted to give a heads up to anyone looking at this for T-Mobile. The listing on new egg is incorrect. this model does not support T-mobile's frequency for 3G. The model number listed on newegg is RFG81UW which according to blackberry's documents does not support the bands for T-Mobile.
