I’ve had a BlackBerry Z10 now since the launch in NYC and while it’s a fun touchscreen device, there are still, to this day, bugs in the OS that give me headaches. Perhaps BlackBerry needs to invest more money in QA, or perhaps I just have some weird magnetic field around my body that breaks technology. Either way, if other, less forgiving users, had the same headaches I’ve been getting with a device, they would probably be switching to another device or platforms. I’ve documented just 13 of the common headaches I’ve been getting with my Z10 and keep in mind, these are all still happening to this day, even on the latest OS 10.1.0.273. There are some I haven’t documented but could describe, such as the odd times when my browser doesn’t provide me any options other than to exit and I have no idea why. Read on for screenshots.
What am I supposed to do here? I’m pretty sure this is in the browser.
This happens pretty regularly. I open my contacts only to find a huge list of nothing.
I’m not sure what’s going on here but this is facebook. Maybe it’s not a bug but facebook doesn’t really go down.
Are you seriously telling me you can’t suggest the word “she’s”?
When you change the fonts, it reaks havoc on the OS headers and titles.
The selection system on the Z10 is really frustrating. Sometimes it just turns into a huge pin icon that doesn’t make any sense.
For some reason BBM just decided to not show me some of my chats.
This happens often. There’s just a giant space between the text entry point and the chat.
Why is there a random blue bar at the bottom of my homescreen sometimes?
This bug makes BlackBerry 10 look pretty terrible. What’s up with these interlocking tiles?
Sure, you might blame this one on Reddit, but the website works consistently on every other platform and only the Z10’s browser does this weird shrinking thing.
Sort of like the bug above, sometimes the text and windows just decide to awkwardly resize themselves.
This is from a file that’s on my device. Every other picture saved worked just fine. For some reason the URL of a picture I took on my device returns this error. Annoying.
