is this the worst blackberry?

I have had my z10 for 2 weeks now, and I really wanted to like it, but I agree with a lot of the posts here. It has been rushed to market, with way too many unresolved issues.

Battery life of 8 hours, poor auto- rotate, poor cell signal..............the list goes on. Its an average touch screen phone.

I would love a sign that blackberry are doing something about all the issues, and a reason to keep it, but it seems that they have removed everything from the Z10 that made blackberry so good.

Its not a blackberry anymore

Re: is this the worst blackberry?

Rushed to market? The reason for it being delayed is because the carriers wanted more time to test it. It most definitely wasn't rushed.
As for the issues you're facing, make sure you're running the latest version of OS available. In addition, even though I love the phone, I still recommend a battery pull every couple of weeks to keep it in top shape.

Re: is this the worst blackberry?

Thanks for that, but I do have the lastest software (updated it 2 days ago), but the battery barely lasts 9 hrs on stand by. And, man does the phone get hot!

Also, any idea where all the text alert tones etc have gone. They have provided a very basic set of notification tones and vibrate options. 

Maybe I was being too optimistic, hoping for the useabiltiy of a Galaxy, but with the best of previous blackberrys (email, text etc)

Re: is this the worst blackberry?

If your phone is draining the battery that fast on standby, and it's getting hot on standby, then something is using excessive data.

 

It could be a poorly coded app that you installed, or an issue with email sync.

Re: is this the worst blackberry?

Thank you. But I only have the original pre loaded apps. My email is push but even the galaxy s 3 would last all day with the same email and settings.

Re: is this the worst blackberry?

Possible your carrier has not updated their radio files.

 

AT&T sent out an update today and mine has been much better with battery life so far.

Re: is this the worst blackberry?

adding that if I take my phone off the charger in the morning it is normally down to 60-70% by bedtime. Right now it's at 35% and a few hours to go

Re: is this the worst blackberry?

You can always try a device wipe and restore your settings. I am getting substantially more battery life after doing one.

 

I was getting 8-10 hours.. I am now getting 13-15 hours... and I am a heavy user, conatant bbm and email. Plus many apps running at the same time.

Re: is this the worst blackberry?

I did wipe the device. Twice! Sadly I stand by the title of this thread.
Have charged twice today and have only been texting. Will check with bell re race update. Thanks for ideas but it looks like buy a spare battery or galaxy
