I'm fairly sure that most of us use our BlackBerry for waking up in the morning - me included. Although it does the job I have one major frustration which I hope is addressed in a future BlackBerry 10 OS update.
I'm not good at getting up in the morning and I love to snooze - taking advantage of every possible minute I can in bed. But sometimes my BlackBerry makes me oversleep and here's why...
Have you noticed how close on screen the 'Dismiss' and 'Snooze' tabs are together that appear when the alarm sounds? In a state of just waking up I've found that it's quite easy to press the dismiss option when meaning to hit snooze. This obviously results in the alarm being switched off, me going back to sleep and waking naturally - which is not ideal when there is work to be done!
We've seen in the Crackberry forums a image of what the alarm will allegedly look like in BlackBerry 10.3, but it doesn't solve the problem.
What I would like to see is something similar to the call answer screen on BlackBerry 10 where you would need to swipe left or right for the two options, therefore eliminating the issue of tapping the wrong tab. I realize that in the scale of things the alarm clock is way down the list of important features we need from our smartphone but getting up is a pretty big deal if you ask me.
Is it just me that's had this issue or would you too like to see the alarm clock redesigned? Let us know in the poll below.
