BB OS 6: what do you think?

by Dollgrin    Nov 21, 2010, 7:31 PM

I just got the Blackberry style and I'm really digging the OS 6. For me it has kept what I love about blackberrys and that's the icons!

Here are a few things I've noticed and loved or hated about the OS. Everyone is different so you may not have the same list but this is what I've come up with.

Overall Speed: Moving from one app to another is faster than it was on my previous blackberry's, and even then I wasn't complaining about the speed.

(BB Style specific)Front Screen Alerts: I think it's neat to be able to scroll through your new alerts witout having to open the phone since I frequently screen people!

Browser: I'm torn on this one. I love and hate the browsing experience. I really like that I can have tabs in the browser since I am on the internet a lot looking things up, playing around on social sites, or using it for work. There is something weird about the way that it pulls up on screen, but I also just came from having an android device (about 4 month or so of a break between bbs) so it could just be that I'm not used to it yet.

Social Feeds:
I'm not a huge fan of the social feeds thing - I just get on the different apps for my fb/twitter/myspace but I could see how someone would like it, especially if they've had an android device in the past.

Main screen: I think it's neat that there are 5 categories that you can view your apps. If you haven't seen one in action, you can basically scroll left or right to view options like "All (which means viewing all apps) - Favorites - Media - Downloads - Frequent". You're able to mark apps as favorites so you have easy access to them, really eliminating how "important" it is to arrange your icons so you don't have to sift through them all to find what you want.
