all pros pretty much except for unlocking to use on other carriers is having issues right now. It crashes a bit but they are pushing out an update right now that should fix that. Battery isn't the greatest but you can get a really cool battery and charger pack for it that's the best of its kind I've ever seen. Other than that it's getting great reviews worldwide.

Agree with Kid... I hate this competition between Apple, Android, Blackberry and Windows. Fanboys galore, yet they are all great companies who make great phones. I have read very good reviews too about the Z10, truly you can't go wrong with any modern (post-2010) device 🙂

Hey I'm a huge fan of Android (obviously lol) and I'm waiting on delivery of a Z10 right now so that should tell you something about how awesome of a device it is. I can't wait to get my Z10, I'm dying to fool around with it.

I'm a huge Android fan too, Kid 🙂 But I always like to keep my eyes open for other/better/different devices 🙂 BTW as a tidbit of information: the Z10 is currently receiving a huge firmware update that makes it even more awesome 😃

lol ;-P
I heard there is a bug when trying to sync your calendar. It would crash
I haven't heard any huge cons.with the device. I just personally don't like Blackberry phones, triedan old curve and found the Palm Pre i had after better personally. If you're into Blackberry phones, i'd suggest getting it, but i've found better functionality in Android phones personally.

You can't compare the new Z10 running Blackberry 10 to any old blackberry it's completely different and is actually better than Android & IOS in some ways

Kid is right. Completely different than what you have used and experience.
What phone do you currently own? If you're switching to a Z10 you need to know that several apps that you now take for granted are not there. I'm not saying it's a bad phone but it does require some adjustment. For example I miss Google Maps, my access to Google Drive (natively) Netflix, etc.... You can answer this question yourself by answering these questions: 1. What phone do I currently have? If Blackberry, you'll love it. 2. What apps on my current phone do I use the most? Are they Available? What are the alternatives 3. If coming from a BB, can you live without the physical keyboard? Hope this helps.
