I've had the phone for more than four months. Its one of the best and most reliable smart phones on the market. The battery lasts for two days in average-high use and never experienced a failure. highly recommend it to business users

Bought Z30 today and i am loving it. I Started with Symbian then Windows Phone and then Android and now BlackBerry 10 and let me tell you the user experience is best on BB10. Its just awesome. Now once i am used to BB10 OS i really dont feel that i am gonna touch any android phone.
Love you BlackBerry..

Interesting reading the comments.

The comments supporting the phone provide the details on what they like and why.

Almost all those being critical of the phone lack details on what specifically they're doing with the phone when they have a problem or just make a general comment that us who do own the phone know just isn't true. When asked for details you just hear crickets.

The Z30 is a great phone. Anyone bashing it for supposed low specs (other than the camera), batter life or screen display are clueless about the phone and the OS and should probably go buy a Samsung.

Anyone critical of BB for it's support are equally misinformed. BB support for the phones using BOS-10 is second to none. Only one that comes close is Sony in my opinion. (Sorry iphone users, Apple OS development can't figure out how to release new revisions without re-introducing old bugs - I've owned 4 iphones going back to the original and ending with the 5 so don't tell me different. Examples: wi-fi connectivity issues and the recurring battery drain issue that comes up with every new major release.)

If Blackberry put the same type of marketing behind their phones that Samsung or Apple do I am sure Blackberry sales would be showing great quarter over quarter sales numbers. Look no further than HTC to see another example of a company with a great phone (the ONE) with sales that haven't met expectations.

If cost is an issue in buying a Z10 or Z30, get the Z3 or pickup a use Z10. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

I've noticed that when I go into a couple of the large phone shops at the mall the Samsung, LG and a few of the other phones on display have the finish wearing off the buttons or edges or backs. The Blackberry Z10 that's been on display for over a year now looks as good as new.

As long as the company keeps up the high quality and high level of support for updating the OS I'll continue to buy Blackberry.

I've owned both the Z10 and Z30. When I told friends I was selling my Z10 they were falling over themselves to buy it from me. Both handsets are very good, the OS is simply awesome (especially given it was a ground up build of a new OS and had very few bugs) and the last 2 releases have improved on a number of features, including the ability and support for sideloading Android applications.

The lack of applications with the Z10 when it first came out was certainly a drawback, but no more. BB is doing a very good job of support and improving it's product. Anyone who buys any one of the Z-line phones with BOS 10 will not be disappointed unless your completely fixated on the camera's MP specs.

Point is this: It doesn't matter. You're working the phone hard and it doesn't damage it one bit.

If your battery is always that warm all the time then take it to the shop.

Battery life with this phone is great. At least 2 days sometimes up to 3 days.

I never used blackberry before but after using
Q5 for my first blackberry phone. I have to admit that the smartphone with new BB10 OS is the best smartphone ahead of others.

Can you try reloading the OS ( after taking a backup for later restoration). Sometimes this might solve the issue.

There are leaked OSs autoloaders available( newer versions) as well. If you don't mind tinkering a bit, you may try them as well.
