New OS 10.2.1 incoming call screen gets pictured

We've just heard about all kinds of new things that may be coming with the OS 10.2.1 update. In addition to the Dashboard, Fuse Mode and Pic Password there appear to be some other UI changes as well, one of which is the incoming call screen. 

This screen has shown up in the latest leaked OS and while we can't say for sure that this is what we'll see when the 10.2.1 update becomes officially available, if the rumors hold true we may be in store for a totally different call screen.

As you can see, this one favors a left / right swipe over the current up / down version for accepting or rejecting a call. It's cleaned up a bit but we're not totally sold on the idea that the screen needs revamping at all. 

So what are your thoughts? Love it? Hate it? Like things the way there are? Hit up the comments and let us know!

I prefer the current one, more unique

thedustytaco

I already got accustomed to it lol. But I dont mind the idea. Although what will happen to the bottom half of the screen?

st3vK

I prefer the actual screen ! But if We can have the choice to choose : Better :)

Editor of www.blackberry-10.fr

JuiciPatties

I agree. Having a choice is good.

But is it just me, or is the layout wrong? i.e. the direction seems backwards. For right-handed folks (who we mostly care more about due to majority ..haha), wouldn't you want to answer the call by swiping to the RIGHT? Or do most people ignore phone calls so they are putting the most frequently used action on the right? :)

axe50

Made to match the call and end call buttons on legacy devices.

SangreNegra

Love the idea! :)

Can't beat a Q10 keyboard!

LostOnThePianoRoll

I like the current one more, but it feels more natural to have the answer on top, not bottom.... so it's similar to the swipe up you do to unlock the phone...

I've hung up on a lot of people because of this mixing up

Posted via CB10

iamrauu

Either give me a choice or keep the original!!

SeekerBerry

Yes, I too would like a right swipe for accepting an incoming call.

johnnyuk

You're out of luck. It looks like a swipe to the left to answer the call.

Posted via CB10

PC_v1

Agreed. With the vast majority of people being right-handed, it makes way more sense having a right swipe to accept a call. A right swipe is a more natural movement when holding the phone in your right hand.

crucial bbq

Grab your Z10 or what-ever, hold it in your right hand, and perform a right-swipe. Now, a left-swipe. The left-swipe is more comfortable, no?

digtech

Im right handed and I agree with the design perspective.. a swipe to the left feels more comfortable to me for answering. I don't however like the interface .. its too blatant.. atleast for the z10 but if it replaces the lag on the current version I welcome it. it is sometimes sticky swiping down to answer a call.

BionicKris

I agree. With the current version sometimes I have to swipe down a few times to answer my phone. It doesn't always respond the first time.

Posted via CB10

LeroyP09

Both with option to choose.

Zed 10 - 10.2.0.1047. In your face VZW

uzmarvel

that screen seems to be from Q10.

dtuivs

Yeah, it would be fine for the Q10 as its a different form and would make sense but on the Z10 it'd be taking a step backwards. Either way options would be good.

Posted via CB10 because the browser died on me. *tear*

Kevmobile

I agree with Dtuivs.

shakeSpeare01

I agree about taking a step backwards. That seems to be a constant thing with BlackBerry...especially when introducing these new devices.

Posted via CB10

uzmarvel

did you even use this feature? It's like bashing BB without trying out BB10. for me current one is not that convenient, it takes too long to swipe down and sometimes it freezes when I swipe down to the bottom. I'm not saying that this version is better but we have to try it personally to properly judge it.

LtHavoc21

Agreed. Ours is pretty damn cool already. This looks like something out of Android. Bleh.

Posted via Z10, with 10.2 envy

AZUbius

Bleh indeed. This is not aesthetically pleasing at all. I think the current screen has plenty of win the way it is.

shakeSpeare01

I completely agree, the way it's designed now by taking up the entire screen is really, really cool--it makes it much easier to use the gestures. This design looks cramped.

I do, however, agree with LostOnThePiano about having to swipe up to answer and down to ignore the call...just seen a more intuitive: up = yes, down = no

Posted via CB10

SkinEgg

I personally think that the current swipe down to answer arrangement makes sense to me. It's the motion of moving the thumb towards the palm as accepting, and away as rejecting. That applies to swipe right to accept and swipe left to reject (for right handed). I guess it's really a personal preference, and being able to customize is the best :)

I agree. While I'm not going to complain about any improvement they make, it just seems like there are plenty of other things that they could be focusing on in OS10.2.1 that were in previous versions of legacy BBOS versions.

Posted via CB10

Kingdmen

The problem is people like my boss, an old school BlackBerry user, can't get through their skulls the concept of swiping up or down to answer or ignore calls. So then they get angry at their bb10.

BlackBerry is trying to reel it back to their legacy versions as much as possible, because their core users are, unfortunately, slow. Very slow.

Posted via CB10

Gord Cluthe

People fear change .. and fear tends to manifest into anger.

I feel the same way when I try to use an Apple product after years of Windows and BlackBerry.

johnnyuk

You're dead right here. The people who have clung to their BBOS phones over the last 4 years are some of the most change averse people I have encountered. And I say that as someone who has to work with them, not just from reading here!

Posted via CB10

Skeevecr

The thing is, if this new design still needs a swipe and doesn't let them click the green or red button then it is still liable to annoy old school users.

cjterminator

How are you so sure about that?

BB Adict

Careful there king. One day, you too will get old and slow. Very slow.

Addict for 10 years, but it may be time to get off this drug.

juanfernandez

Exactly! One of my biggest problems in compariosn to legacy devices: Key rate! So annoying...

TX Jedi

Many other things need attention. However, I do like the "legacy" acknowledgement, and would like to be able to just tap on the icon instead of sliding. That would be even more "legacyish".

juanfernandez

I know where you're coming from but I think this is, since the era of the smartphone, a way to avoid accidentally picking up or hanging up whilst taking the phone out of your pocket.

TX Jedi

Makes sense. I forget about everyone else. I use a holster.

Correct! They should focus on making the OS smooth and stable instead of changing things that is less necessary..

I don't get why people keep making comments like this, the people doing ui work would not be working on new features if they didn't have these changes to make.

juanfernandez

This might be a matter of opinion. As a Designer I was completely happy with the 10.2 Design. If they need to change something I think they could rather be changing the stock icon's design because it's very oldschool'ish, in my opinion.

I don't want to sound complainative though, I'm perfectly happy with my Q10, it's just my point of view.

smallbiz

Current one is good but like the addition of the green answer and red hang up buttons.

I don't think they are buttons, it looks like you slide the grey dot with the exact same functionality as the grey bar ;)

I prefer the up/down. More importantly - when are they going to allow us to customize the 3 icons on the quick launch bar?? I'm so tired of accidentally launching the camera with my thumb fat lol.

Absolutely hate it. I mentioned this in the forums, and I'll mention it again. It was unique, it was new, and it was cool. One of the best subtle things of BB10. they should NOT change it, OR they should give us the option to choose. either way, the old system works, and works well. why would they want to change it?

SnoozerBold

I like the one we have now. However, I'm good either way.

Speaking of call screens has anyone noticed that since 10.2 their proximity sensor doesn't work as well and you end up hitting buttons when you're on the phone.

Nope call screen works perfect here, proximity sensor is the same as 10.1.

moosbb

For one hand in any device, that's one of the point I guess, other main one as to try to keep unwanted answer/call...from pocket for exemple, since the move is verticaly.
But as majority here, I quite prefered the old one (using the last leak, then bye the old for me :)
Maybe it need yet a lttle UI revamp...
Overhaul that leak is simply fantastic!

It will be the same for the Z10?? NOOOOOOOOOOO

Agree it has advanced point. But does it need to have a look like Android?

CDM76

It's more intuitive. The whole os should be intuitive enough that ppl are not scared to try it. I've seen many not take time to learn it get frustrated and say "this is dumb" and walk over to a Samsung.

I like the os and the swiping but there is a learning curve and many ppl just don't like learning. So make key parts more intuitive and it will be less intimidating to people.

This is one step in the right direction.

Maybe guys this new call screen will have additional features ie send text when call is rejected.

I like our current call screen. I think it's sexy! Although, the left right swiping means it's easier with one hand...for me anyways.

My vote would be to...change it to left right swiping. I like that, much easier for persons with smaller hands.

On my Z10 somewhere in the GTA.

The current one is very nice. I've had android and iOS comment on how cool it looks. This one does seem a bit like a knock off. I guess if it changes, we'll have to change.

I like the design of the slider, but I think we need to hold on to the up/down for accepting/declining incoming calls. I've gotten too used to it.

Also, on other smartphones accepting a call is typicaly a swipe to the right. I can imagine plenty of people accidentally declining a call out of intuitive habit.

But like i said, the design is very sharp.

I prefer the current one. If you want to make it like on Android - do it like on Android - swipe right to accept the call. Having both (BB and Android) phones in my pocket I would always need to think first which side to swipe :-/
BTW, swiping thumb to the left is very uncomfortable with the left hand, while up and down gestures are comfortable with any hand.
One more time - would be happy for it to stay like it is now.

inspectrheck

I much prefer the current screen but also I don't think this screen looks better or worst and welcome the "option". This is perfect if only BB10 offers this as a option in a call screen setting somewhere in the system settings area. As previous folks in the thread have communicated there are other areas that BlackBerry devs can be focusing on in 10.2.1

I'm assuming BBRY was getting feedback that folks were having issues with the call screen. I guess they couldnt figure it out (i know, sounds dumb), so they made it more like the other OS'. I liked the other version better, but this is still nice and pretty clean. This OS is coming together quite nicely. Crazy thing is that it has not even been a year and we have seen so many updates. Imagine what this thing will look like in another year. I would say next up is make some Hardware innovation as apple and the rest seem to be working on some curved screened phones. Is that the next thing people are going to demand?

Ugly! Why need to change the current one? It's unique!

I will have to say that I prefer the current look and use of the up and down. Already used to it. They can add other things I'd they want to, just keep the swipe up and down

I don't get many calls but the vertical is unique - that being said this looks a bit easier for the Q series. As well there is room for a caller ID picture for your contacts. Maybe other options like direct to voice mail or other responses. If it's optional it's all good.

I prefer the current one. Although, sometimes when someone calls me and I pick my phone from my pocket, I would sometimes hang up by accident.

Also, they should keep the current one and just make enhancements, because I noticed some people still struggle trying to figure out how to silence the ring.

What I want is a predictive dialer that as I dial by either name or phone number, pulls up several matches that then I can select.

I prefer the current up/down one! Feels more fluid in my opinion.

Prefer the current screen. If looking to improve something functionally, change the active call screen where the "End Call" button is at the bottom of the screen (on my Q10) and is often accidently hit (hanging up the call) as I use the phone when multi-tasking, e.g., while performing a "swipe-up" from the bottom of the screen to change apps. They could also make speed dialing more efficient, as it now requires one to navigate into the "soft" keypad option of the call app before a "hard" speed dial key can be long-pressed to initiate a call (as opposed to simply a long-pressing the speed-dial key from the keypad at any point).

I don't like it, if they were to add/improve the current one to add more functionality like swiping to the left to use canned responses or to the right to go straight to voice mail.

Not bothered whether it's androidy or not

I'll admit that the only thing I dislike about my Z10 is the swipe down to answer. I never seem to catch it right when swiping down so end up manically trying do it again with the finger in my other hand before it goes to voice mail. I've missed loads of calls which is frustrating.

If true, then it would be nice to have both as an option.

Needs to stay up and down. Android and iPhone are right and left. It's what distinguishes us from those terds.

I used my Z10 to create this CrackBerry madness!

Current one is fine. But if we had the option to choose which one........that would be awesome.

I like current one better. This looks "too androidish" :)

I think they are trying to target the more one handed use consumers. That is probably the one thing that I find had is to answer a call or reject a call with one hand. I think they should make it an option :D

I prefer the one I have

This might be more useful for larger screen devices, but I really don't care. The uniqueness of the current screen (and the fact that I have a Q10) makes me prefer the old one by a long shot.

The people have spoken. This looks as unpopular as Rob Ford at Toronto's city hall.

marcogrimaldi

I don't like that at all,Not even remotely. The current version is 200 times better and way more natural. Who can I complain to about this so it doesn't happen?

Hate it, but haven't tried it. Old one looks easier to answer

I don't mind the change. Considering that when someone calls currently, as soon as you touch the screen it stops ringing already. And for those who have shorter reach its easier to reach side to side instead of up and down.

NO!
Like the current one.
It's more unique!!
It's BB10 STYLE
Android ICS look sucks!

BoldPreza

I found the current way very stupid so I am glad to see this simple switch. It doesn't need to be pretty just functional.

I also prefer the one we have now (up and down). The only thing they should change is add arrows to show how to ignore the call. People have seen my call screen and could see how to answer but how to ignore was a question. Anyway, I also agree, they should be focusing on bringing legacy functionality that we are still missing to the platform and continuing to improve / stabilize the OS.

I like the incoming call screen the way it is.

Enhancement on the UI, they should focus on that instead..specially on text messaging..not stable, glitchy most of the time..

I prefer the current up/down swipe. Feels more natural on the thumb.

If it's an option ok but if it's not leave it alone!

I like the up/down swipe to answer / reject call.

That's same as "viber". I like the original one. Up/reject and down/accept. More convenience for me!

Prefer current, and would appreciate the ability choose between the two.

Don't change the call screen. Update the new user tutorial instead. I don't recall it mentioning how to answer/silence/ignore a call.

mister_turtle

Don't change it please!
The current screen is just fine!

Well I dont think that current screen is a problem. There are lots of other more important things (at least for me) that should be taken care of

Like SMS problems after 10.2 (slower than before), making BlackBerry Link better, more customization options, sms response when rejecting call (now the phrase sent cannot be changed completely, only a part of it), and other tweaks and improvements

I prefer the current one. This one reminds me of android for some reason.
