So many smartphones cycle through the TechnoBuffalo offices that it becomes difficult to keep track of what’s what. Often times, we’ll test a phone out during a one or two week stretch in order to make a determination in our final review. But beyond that, phones either get sent back or sit in gadget purgatory. Rarely do we provide our opinion one month later.

But we wanted to give the BlackBerry Z10 that little bit of extra attention. Everyone knows what’s at stake for BlackBerry, so I won’t bother with that for the hundredth time. What’s important here is what the experience has been like over the past 30 days, and how my opinions have changed over that period of time.

When you’re used to sampling the latest Android super phones on the market, jumping over to a brand new OS can be daunting. There’s a lot to like in BlackBerry 10, but there’s definitely room for improvement; the main thing is that the potential is there. With so many big-name Android handsets—with Full HD screens and super fast quad-core processors—ready to hit the market soon, will there be room for the Z10 in another month from now?

Check out the video for my full thoughts one month later, and let us know how your Z10 experience has been now that you’ve spent a substantial amount of time with the device.
