2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Display tends to attract too many smudges and fingerprints
  • Initial learning curve with the BB10 OS (especially to understand the different gestures)
  • Average loudspeaker
  • Limited 3rd party app eco-system (compared to Android or iOS) - and even the apps present are often not as full-featured as their Android/iOS counterparts
  • Ordinary maps application compared to that of Google, or even Apple
  • Limited voice control service (not as 'smart' as Android's voice control, or Apple's Siri)
  • Average battery life
  • Large size makes it a bit uncomfortable for one-handed use
  • Lacks ambient light sensor
  • Second SIM slot can be used either for the second SIM or SD card, but not both
