    I tend to believe that the current iPhone uses the battery it has more efficiently than most phones out there. Seems like the other companies are prone to go bigger battery with bigger battery hogging features which in turn gives you no benefit from having a bigger battery. As an example the M7 handling motion data is more battery efficient than A7 doing it.

    I somewhat agree but would sum it up a bit different. You can a have Z30 with 2880mAh twice as large and if all you do is text and email you'll get a 5-7 days of it, but if you stream video, skype, etc that battery definitely doesn't go nearly as far.

    Same thing as iPhone, it's only 1440mAh, if you just use it to communicate, you can definitely go a day or day and a half on a charge, but if you're a heavy user streaming videos, skype, games, etc that battery doesn't go very far.

    I think it's definitely a combo of battery size and how you use your device.

    That's his opinion, which he's allowed to have. I have no problem with my battery.
    Same I get at least double the battery life with my 5s than I did on my s3's best days. That's with variable signals too. I drive around a hundred miles a day and don't always have the best signal and call a good bit. I average using around 1500 minutes a month just by myself and I end up getting home with at least 75% battery left. But my days usually are calling and listening to music in my car not a lot of streaming or data usage. I also have my car charger and a battery backup if I ever get stranded somewhere so I'm never really worried about battery life anymore.

    Well, if there was one issue the iPhone has, due mostly to size of the unit, battery has to be it. Anyone can see that. This is like Cook saying that all these VLP users are big-fingered *****, and this thread is like a bunch of Note 3 users posting about how their phone is actually moderately sized.

    This is a good balanced commentary. Clearly the UIs are different but the times I have been able to sit down and play with a Z10 convinced me that BB10 was a great effort on BB's part. You are correct when you say that both platforms are great. As far as the battery life thing...I have struggled with battery life on my iP5 since I got it. I am on exchange server for work and get a bunch of emails everyday. I finally had to shut off the push notifications for work because it was chewing up my battery life way too quickly in the day. I couldn't get a full day out of the charge. That being said, I still really like my iP5 and look forward to the iP6.
    Could always go for a mophie case?

    I never said my department allows loading Amazon or Snap. I said BB10 10.2.1 allows it. My Q10 is stock, only updates are the ones pushed through by IT. I can't access the app stores at all. Full control is by IT admin.
    You were never said otherwise

    I choose the iPhone 5s for personal use because I simply prefer the UI and Apple experience having an iPad and MacBook and can sync everything up.
    So did 51 million other consumers last quarter, versus 1.1 million shipments for bb10. The majority of that of BB10's SHIPMENT last quarter was deferred from the previous quarter).

    My point was if I or anybody else really wanted a Blackberry 10 device, they could get a Z30, have most Android Apps available and a battery 2880mAh versus 1440mAh. No comparison.
    Your point it is ridiculous, and frankly reeks of being hypocritical.
    Consumers don't want bb10, the market has spoken.
    Dare anyone even remind you, you gave up your z30 for the iPhone 5s.
    I agree you cannot compare iOS7 to bb10 or the iPhone 5s to the z30, Apple is simply out of BB's League.

    When consumers are presented with the same choice, the don't choose BB10, as we have witnessed first hand.

    "94 percent of T-Mobile upgraders dump BlackBerry as CEO complaints backfire"
    Ouch

    But you can't see past the fact that I'm writing anything positive about BlackBerry?
    You can write whatever you like, why you choose fiction is beyond me.

    Why can't both both be solid?
    BB 10 was never "solid", and sales/returns reflected as much. Blame Blackberry not me.


    The company might not be doing great but that doesn't mean the product isn't solid. They're fighting a major uphill battle.
    Actually thats exactly what it means, here let me educate you:

    Q3'14:
    "BlackBerry reports massive Q3 loss, takes huge charge for unsold BlackBerry 10 handsets"

    "If you thought that things couldn't get worse for BlackBerry following the $1 billion operating loss reported for its fiscal second quarter, guess again. On Friday morning, the Canadian OEM put an exclamation mark on the failure of the Thorsten Heins era by reporting a $4.4 billion loss for its fiscal third quarter. And $2.7 billion of that loss was due to a write-off of BlackBerry 10 units gathering dust in the marketplace."

    BlackBerry reports massive Q3 loss, takes huge charge for unsold BlackBerry 10 handsets

    Q2'14:
    "Bleak BlackBerry Q2 results highlight nearly $1 billion in unsold Z10 phones"

    "It's no secret: BlackBerry is in bad shape. The company released its earnings for Q2 today, and the rough results directly follow the bleak guidance the Canadian firm offered last week when it announced 4,500 layoffs and a nearly $1 billion loss over the quarter. The final number revealed today is a $965 million loss, which is mainly accounted for by the awful sales of the Z10, the first phone to run BlackBerry 10. Unsold Z10s have forced the company to take "a primarily non-cash, pre-tax charge against inventory and supply commitments of approximately $934 million" in what it's calling the "Z10 Inventory Charge" — words that few will likely want to utter in Waterloo."

    Q1'14:
    "BlackBerry slumps as BB10 flops
    Blackberry reported a first quarter loss of $84 million (55m), forecast another one next quarter and said its new BB10 devices sold just 2.7m units"

    BlackBerry slumps as BB10 flops - Telegraph



    Blackberry isn't doing so well because of BB10, I hope your able to understand that simple concept.


    Moreover Apple stock continues to drop as BlackBerry continues to rise. Look this is silly.
    You can't be serious. Apple is currently @ 537 while blackberry is at 9.60, once again falling below 10 dollars.
    Please prove me and the market wrong, buy as many shares in Blackberry as you see fit.

    I support both because both help me accomplish my needs throughout the day.
    You don't support both. Clearly you picked the 5s and paid for it. Your IT department handed you the q10, you didn't pay for it, and if the rumours out of MWC are true, POSSIBLY, neither did your company.
    There were rumours that Blackberry were giving away free handsets to enterprise customers in hopes of retaining them as BES customer.



    What's comical is you knowing nothing about BB10 and calling it a failure.
    How so? I was given a free z10 to evaluate back in Feb 13,
    (Im a VC, call it a perk) I threw it away in March, What a waste of time.

    BB10 is an abysmal failure.

    btw I also had a Dev A & Dev C devise.

    it's easy to point to poor sales in the US, but things aren't so bad elsewhere and the partnership with Foxconn will help.
    Now this is comical. BB10 has cratered everywhere not just the US. especially in key markets such as Indonesia the middle east and even latin america.

    Why am I even explaining it to you? You are clearly missing my point.
    you haven't explained anything, and frankly you have no point, Just hypocritical advice and quite the display of limited understanding in current mobile market.

    Both platforms are great. BlackBerry's failures are not because of the OS, it's because they were 4 years late with it. If BB10 and devices came out when iPhone and Android came out, this would be a different conversation and BBRY would still be a power house. They dropped the ball for way to long and consumers found their way to much better products at the time. That however doesn't mean BBRY isn't now putting out great devices, it just means people are happy with what they have. Just like I'm happy with my iPhone as a personal device.

    No apologies necessary :beers: ,

    If blackberry preforms well under Chen, it would actually make me quite happy. I had high hopes when he first took over (Ron louks is very passionate about mobiles).

    I also used to be a big blackberry fan (I have my platinum blackberries to prove it), it's just a shame what happened.

    "Wall hugging " with my iPhone 5c is exactly what I was doing this week.
    I had stopped off at my aunt's house during a long journey and I do not have a car charger for my iPhone. The battery was not dead, but was in need of a top up. I was sat on a chair, by a wall, using the phone whilst it charged at a socket.
    I also own a BlackBerry Z10 and for that I have a spare battery pack, which can be charged with the standard phone charger. It can then be used to recharge the phone's battery in just 30 mins or you can swap the batteries around in just a couple of minutes.
    I noticed that a friend at work must have just bought a battery case like a Morphie for her iPhone 5. It looks very smart, but must add to the size and weight of the iPhone, plus they generally cost 3/4 times more than the BlackBerry solution of the spare battery pack. Does anyone even make these cases for the 5c?

    I didn't know that adapter existed either. A bit pricey though, but it is a solution and would allow an iPhone to be recharged from a wider range of sources.
