"Fast, Smooth, Intuitive; The best phone on the market."5.0 starson by nickjoer
Pros: Very fast, easy to use, one quick swipe to access the hub (where all of your messages are), the key board is incredible, it has all the apps I want and good battery life. It even appeals to my Canadian patriotism. This is all I want in a phone.
Cons: There is a slight rattle to the phone (it's only noticeable when I go to set the phone down, top first). I think that it has something to do with the NFC sensor. It's nothing major, just a bit annoying.
Summary: This phone is by far the best Blackberry made and it beats all of the current phones on the market. It is very easy to use; I managed to be swiping my way though all of its features within a few minutes. There is a slight learning curve, but it's negligible (just a minute or two and you'll never be able to go back to a physical keyboard or another touch screen).
There have been some complaints about battery life. I haven't had an issue with this. I managed to use it from 9AM to midnight and still have 25% battery life left on it (I use it as a student, so it's mainly for text messages, a couple calls, and some web surfing).
In terms of applications in the Blackberry World store, I have been able to find everything that I want. There are plenty of news apps (CBC, Globe and Mail), games, etc. In summary, there are more than enough functioning apps, and even if you can't find an app you absolutely need you can most likely access it through the flash-enabled browser.
I highly recommend this phone, It is a wonderful piece of technology and I love how it is a new OS. Android and especially iOS have grown rather stale, and so BB10 will be certain to appeal to your desire for a good, innovative interface.
