Buy a new battery. I found ones for around 10-15$
if anything, the best three phone companies are: 1.Blackberry 2. Nokia (windows phone) 3. HTC
z10 or z30 or q10 or q5 (any bb10 phone) even the p'9982
The z10 has a better keyboard and learns the way you type in order to adjust to your style instead of you adjusting to it like the Iphone.
So good for games but not with this battery!! Lol
both these phones are shit lol.SAMSUNG THE BOSS
Get Z10. I had the opportunity to use iPhone 5 and Z10 before I decide, my decision was Z10 and I am happy with it!
I don't think that ur phone's battery is safe. My Z10 last the whole day internet 3G activated. May be you should take it back to the store and get another one with a good battery!
I was BLOWN! I'm looking for a new phone to save up for and so I was looking at my phone compared to my iPhones. I have a Samsung Gravity SMART and it's better than an iPhone 5! I want to know what phone is better than mine, and so far-- I've got like the best phone ever! Thanks GeekaPhone! I use SnapSort, and this is just as good!
Did get the Z10 about 2 weeks ago - was extremely disappointed with the Battery Life. Despite being a low user (2-3 calls per day for 5-7 mins each) and a few text messages, the battery used to die out by 3 PM! It was such a shame as the device is otherwise great. Now wondering what to do...
hi... i bought a 32GB class 10 micro sd card and it works great... i love the Z10 but wish there were more great things on it which i had on my curve... like maps and other options...
i stay on my iphone 4:))
Agreed.
I have a Z10 and just am using the 32GB Micro SD I had in my Galaxy S3 (Which I am getting rid of thankfully !) The 32GB card is very adequate, unless you are going to shoot tons of HD movies and keep them on your phone. I usually transfer these things to my computer and make way for new stuff, and for security in case someone else decides they like my phone more than I do (without my consent).
iPhone is best for apps and games. After all, it was sorta 'developed' from the iPod mould. It can't even natively send files by Bluetooth for goodness sake, and still sticks with proprietary connectors which makes for lugging around extra connectors. Android best for tech geeks, and anyone who loves freedom to customize their phone, route the OS and also for apps. BB10 best for serious people who don't need to waste time, and just want to get things done, and primarily as a communications device, with the ability to now do entertainment.
my wife gave me the black bb z10 today as a gift... now i've to get the micro sim card (either cut the existing card or get a micro one from my service provider). but my question is which micro sd memory card should i get... i want either a 32 GB or 64 GB capacity card which is able to save HD videos with the highest resolutions... thanks in advance... and yes.. i liked my old bb and i am sure i'll love my new bb z10.
The z10 is a a modern phone, modern hardware, and fully optimizsed by its software. Let me put it this way to be easily understood. The iphone5 and even when the iphone55 [fifty-five model will come in ten years time], it is akin to FORD MODEL T car. The Z10 Blackberry on the other hand is your modern 2014 formula one race car. You race the two anytime in indianapolis, and even if you will sleep one whole day, when you wake up, you will still pass the iphone [Ford Model T], still only past one fourth the indinanapolis race track, in all those hours you have been slumbering. Again, although the F1 engine is so small, it is optimized to be a very scientifically engineered racing masterpiece - just like the Blackberry Z10. Iphone and the rest of apple is already an antiquarted piece of crap; vga fifteen year old screen, dual core fifteen year old A5 tech cpu; nonsense windows 3.1 era ios, and soldered on second hand cheapo micro sd as internal storage, and housed in a cheapo aluminum and tempered glass, powered by an overheating and leaking nickel cadmium battery, and not the modern ceramic-synthetic and scratch proof dragontail glass with lithium ion polymner battery. In short, iphone is like most americans, plain j.c.a.s
z10
I'm just bought it the shipping will take few days can't wait for it =D
i am really confused whether to buy i phone 5 or bb z10! plz help me peeps!
try to paly games like mc3, it will show you all who is the best, i have tree of best smartphones, iphone 5 64gb, note 2 16gb and z10, i have see who is the best, and i think you will know when you all use the phone, and still iphone i very fast indeed, maybee for office use and free games android and blackberry is usefull but iphone is the generaly useful balance need for smartphones
I'm also very impressed with the BB Z10 and cannot wait till it is available.
can't wait to get my hands on this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would wait and see if the apps on blackberry 10 grew in quantity and quality and then decide if I could live them. Just because I'm a massive blackberry fan an don't want the Blackberry to fall I'm probably going to get the Z10 and an iPod 5 to play games on.
