There some inconsistencies within the BB10 UI which I finally figured is derived by the ability to swipe back from the stock UI except from within the system settings where we have to use the back button to go back between screens.
Can we have option to sort System Menus or Application Drawer and the ability to hide applications like previous BBOS?
BB10 UI is not intuitive in regards to recognizing email / phone nos / addresses compared to prior BBOS. A lot of trial and error copy and pasting to do what you want to do with said contact info until figuring out what works. Unfortunately besides not being able to call a phoneno directly from anywhere, a user does not have the ability to copy and paste number on a dialer or search item to call like previous BBOS. User will have to either try to go back and for the between screens to dial and call the number or use the trust pen and paper method.

Since I'm out here, a few more things. With regards to the consistency, can we have the option to have the search bar at the bottom of the screen like the browser? Also, include more customization features like notification profile management as found on previous BBOS?
With the ability to bring up the keyboard anywhere swiping up with two thumbs, can we have the keyboard shortcuts like we did previously on BBOS? For a BBOS power user, I think it would be great. Hold Q to quite phone, Press N for next or P previous to navigate in between the hub to scroll by date or to go between messages.
With the browser, can you make it easier to toggle between regular and desktop mode instead of where currently I fail to find the reasoning why it's in the developer options. Btw, viewing this page in desktop mode and going between text boxes as I type this seems to buggy as screen gets confused to where to put the text icon.
All in all I love the typing experience on the z10. Hopefully I can help in any way to improve the experience for old and new BlackBerry users.

Okay, I know others have mentioned this but I would like to highlight it some more. Please improve the accessibility of the UI. For starters, obtain to change default screen font size anywhere. Words can become very tiny looking as one keeps using the phone for extended period of time. Have battery percentage and date shown as default from the top status bar, even make status icons more useful by having them quick launch like in the playbook where time date opens calendar,
I known it may bring the app count considerably but would it be possible to just put a built in flashlight or battery management features for BB1010? While you're at it, might as well put a stock solitaire app ;P

I wrote a little app to do it: Clipboard Dialer. It scans your clipboard for phone numbers and allows you to call or text them, add to contacts etc. Also works by selecting a paragraph or two in your browser or e-mail, tapping the text and sharing it with Clipboard Dialer.
