having it now for a few days in use i am extremely positive surprised by the battery life. My 9900 was at noon time ready for a recharge while the Z10 is still om 50% full after 12 hours in use. The an OS loads way faster than on any of my previous BlackBerry’s. The OS itself feels comfortable partially known from the Playbook. Setting up was easy even the BlackBerry Link which his the replacement of the former BlackBerry Desktop Manager is horrible on a 64bit system.
Was this now the new start i was waiting for? Definitely a clear yes. The phone is great, it looks great, it feels great, it works great. Sadly LTE is not working down here but that is fine for me.
The BlackBerry World App Store has already some nice apps and even the Emirates NBD has already a BB10 app online. I hope there are much more great apps to come which are missing from the start but as Skype was already announced this is probably just a question on time till the other big ones come.
If you are fancying a new phone right now give the Z10 a try, you wont be disappointed.
