"Pleasantly surprised!"4.5 starson by ChromeXenon
Pros: * Keyboard (it's spooky how good it predicts words)
* BlackBerry Hub
* Screen size and resolution
* Time shift camera works, it's not just a gimmick
* BlackBerry World is a app/movies/music ecosystem in one app
* Browser is super fast
Cons: * Battery life is ok, not great
* Gestures take some getting used to, but are very nice once you do
* Still waiting on some big name apps
* Miss the power-user features of BB 7.1 (notifications, auto-off, etc.) but these will come with updates
Summary: I was considering moving to an iPhone 5 from by Bold 9900 and would have if the Z10 wasn't as good as it is. I worried BlackBerry was going to mess BB10 handsets up like all of the previous launches but I'm happily surprised with how integrated everything is and how polished BB10 is. Considering it's really the v1.0 launch of a new OS, it's amazing what they accomplished.
App performance is absolutely on par or better than iOS and Android, even on apps which use the Android runtime (which on the PlayBook was sub par at best).
