    Any new Q10 owners?

    Hi any new Q10 owners yet?, looking forward to hearing about the Q10,
    Is it better than Z10?, battery life and keyboard?, what makes it a good choice?,
    Would like a phone with physical keyboard, am waiting to hear members views/opinions,
    as price premium over Z10 is high in UK,

    I'm a proud owner of the Q10! It's still quite pricey outright in Canada. For the 9900 I paid $549, the Q10 was purchased for $650 with tax it came to $790.

    The Q10 is a nice solid and sturdy built phone. It has this unexpected weight to it that some users from the Legacy side may like. Being a user of touch only phones for the past 2 months I felt the difference immediately especially using an iPhone 5. With a 2100mAh battery I think this should have been built in as there is only a 0.2mm difference in depth from the 9900. The height is welcomed now that there isn't a trackpad and hard keys which I don't miss at all.

    The swipe gestures are extremely easy to get a hold of despite that some say a learning curve is required. It's just a matter of doing it repeatedly (I was a Z10 owner as well).

    The OS is like a shrunken Z10 experience. Smaller screen means selecting words or clicking on links will surely annoy some. I continuously have this fret where I scroll upwards in apps only to bring the actually app into the Active Frame stance and then accidentally pressing the X to close it as I try to balance the device in one hand.

    In regards to typing with one hand, that's more of a Z10 experience than a Q10 experience. Keys are still stiff from its newness.

    I hope this helps to some decision making.

    Hey Merlin, that's ridiculously expensive. I'm not a PlayBook fan so I don't see it as a welcoming gift if that. The battery is crazy excellent. I fine tuned my settings such as backlight timer, wifi usages, placing it in sleep mode after using it, all of this plays its part. Since yesterday afternoon my battery is at 53% with minimal usage today compared to yesterday. If you don't use many apps then this is a great device. If you do use a lot of apps look towards iPhone. I never recommend Android in handsets dur to the fragmentation. Sure you can side load, but I still think that shouldn't be necessary especially after this rebirth.

    Hi Digitalhomeboy, battery life sounds very good, not an app fan, text/E mail heavy user, and a few calls,8 Q10 might be worth a look,
    yes expensive and playbook offer to sell Q10, thats the UK, many retailers try it on, will have to wait awhile then price will drop,
    it happened with Z10 at first now price same as other makes flagship phones, thank you for your reply.
