Re: new call answer option is painful

Strange, I found it a pain to reach halfway up the screen and drag my thumb down. I find it much easier to drag my thumb downward then toward the left.

 

 

To each his own, I guess.  Smiley Happy

Each to his own indeed. I think I'm getting old as reaching across the four inch screen is painful for other things too. I would be ok left handed Smiley Happy

I am with you, I am some one with mobility problem and I need to use a cane to walk, with the original way to answer the phone I was able to do it when I was commuting back and forth, with the new one unless I use both hand I can not answer the **bleep** phone.

Re: new call answer option is painful

I kinda liked the pulling down bar to answer calls.... With the newer bottom swipe feels like I`m using my Samsung...

And that was my secondary issue. It was different Smiley Happy. I'm considering going back to 10.2.0.1803 but am just weighing up the deal now... what will I lose now? Hmmm....

Re: new call answer option is painful

Having had a good blackberry phone I find every thing about the Z10 painful. I had to answer the phone and I have no idea how I did it.  Remember when you just picked up the phone and said hello.

"Manage your work and life faster and more easily than ever with the latest BlackBerry® 10 OS update." Thats a joke. Never had a problem with a blackberry until now.

Re: new call answer option is painful

I've had a few BlackBerry devices and I am enjoying the z10 but I know what you mean about how things have gotten better for some and worse for others. I came from a bold 9900 to the q10 then the z10. On balance I am happy especially as I've gone back a version Smiley Happy
