The BlackBerry 10 OS is really like nothing else in the smartphone world. The new Flow interface on the Z10 lets you multitask with ease, and the BlackBerry Hub helps you keep tabs on everything from incoming emails and BBMs to Facebook and Twitter updates in one place. I also love the new flick keyboard, even if the pop-up suggestions can be distracting.
As with any new platform, though, there’s bound to be kinks. I’m not talking about obvious things like missing apps. There are several small but meaningful changes BlackBerry should make to its software that would make life a lot easier on users. Here are my top 10 BlackBerry 10 annoyances.
When I'm using my iPhone or an Android phone, the email app automatically starts suggesting names as I type. Not so on BlackBerry 10, even after I've synced my Exchange account. Instead, I get an invitation to look up the person, which just wastes time. That's really annoying for people who send dozens of emails per day. Just fix it.
