Few minor flaws I've noticed

- the camera shutter still makes a sound when Z10 is set to silent
- Also, I wish I could still post a facebook status directly from the phone... like I used to do on latest Bold (not from within the facebook app).
- When using the holster and accidentally pressing the top button, the phone switches off. I need to be very careful with this one! not sure if the holster doesn't kind of press the 'switch off' thingy on the screen itself?
- Cannot share a picture through facebook as a message. can only post to timeline.

 

Plus, I WOULD LOVE to have the facebook messeges working as a real0time chat from within the Hub - not just messeges.

Re: Few minor flaws I've noticed

There's a third party application "Silent Camera" in BlackBerry World. Try that.

 

Cold you explain further what you're wanting to do to make Facebook Status posts from the device?

Bold 9900 can post a facebook status directly from the phone menu (appears as "via Blackberry" on facebook) just like you can upload the photos - without opening the facebook app. It seems to be just one more option missing when you hit 'compose' from within the HUB to include 'facebook status'.

I am not looking really for a 3rd party solutions, thanks. I can totally live with all this. I am only pointing out what I believe to be missing in BB10 and meant it as a feedback for future updates.

That top edge button shouldn't be powering the device off, but only placing it in standby mode.

Unless you (or something else) push and hold that button for 3 seconds. :smileywink: So in theory, yes a badly designed holder could in theory turn off the phone, but it would need to be able to push that button pretty hard and is pretty unlikely. :smileywink:

Re: Few minor flaws I've noticed

if you hold it for 2 seconds (which is very likely to happen when pushing the device into the holster) a power-off option appears on the screen and from what I have noticed - the holster seems to be activating the power-off process with it's magnetic part. dunno if it's just me but I need to be very careful with it. without the holster 2sec is not enough to power it off but in this case is just somehow happens just as I slide the Z10 in to the holster.

Re: Few minor flaws I've noticed

Oy. I understand. Yes, the longer push will commence the power down. I don't push from there, I push it down in the holster from the sides of the top.

Re: Few minor flaws I've noticed

I think that he is actually concerned that a holster's closing flap may push that button accidentially and shut the phone down. Pretty unlikely that they will have the force to do so, and I think the official Blackberry clip holster actually has the flap in an asymeterical position anyway.

Re: Few minor flaws I've noticed

I don't think you guys get me here... the holster does not push any hardware buttons, it activates the one on the touch screen. when you hold the hardware lock button for 2 secs, the big bold turn-off-device button appears on the screen and the magnetic part of the holster seems to be "pushing" it as you slide the phone into it. does that make sense? so basically, when you accidentally push the lock button even for a little while with your finger WHILE you slide the phone into the holster -  it turns off itself. it seems to be happening to users on crackberry.com as well

Re: Few minor flaws I've noticed

I understand. Place your finger elsewhere on the top edge when pushing the device into the holster.
