You should try the BB10 OS, its awesome :) I have been using Z10 for an year, no lag at all (premium built quality for my Z10) While when I used Xperia Mini Pro, Xperia X8 and Micromax Canvas 2 (I have used them all), all of them went laggy after 6 to 8 months. (I know there are solutions, but with BB10 you don't need to bug yourself doing it at regular intervals). And you don't need a separate BB Internet plan now, you can use your normal internet plan for BB10 Operating System (Cool isn't it?) The multitasking (Switching between apps is way far superior than iOS or Android), again I have used all the 3 OS. The all swipe navigation is at par, and the hub is brilliant idea ! Cons: BB10 is still developing and it's access (considering depth of API), is less compared to Android. BB10 also supports android apps, my banking app is an android APK which I use but runs smoothly with no issues.
