Should I buy a Z10 at this moment?

Hi my friend just going to sell his Blackberry Z10 and this could be my first BB phone. It is not installing stock batt but a 5000mah mpj extended battery. Should I buy a Z10 at this moment? Is it still a decent phone? Please advices are needed, thanks in adv.

I have a Z10 that I use now and again....
BB10 has improved since launch.
It's still a so-so device, but at the right price?

Thanks to an app called Snapp it's now easy to install Android app - in fact, with Snapp you can access the Play Store. And Android apps now run pretty okay - though, they still take 10-20 seconds to load. But once running, they almost feel 'native'.

The BB10 browser is STILL the fastest mobile browser around and a joy to use.
Camera is not awe-inspiring, but acceptable. Music player is good. Fuzz free and great volume.

The only issue is this: If you never had a BB you'd be new to the appstore. BB apps are on average more expensive than other OSs's ... But you have the choice to use Android alternatives.

Again: price would decide it for me, and with the Moto G and the new Lumia 630, you friend would have to sell it cheaply, indeed.

BB Z10 is a great phone. At least it is decent for me.

Yes, it took a year for me, but I like it. If it had a better cam, I'd use it full-time
