After getting a Z10 in Febreuary and loving the experience I sought to upgrade to a Z30.
I loved the design, OS and functionality about the Z10. However the battery lasting 8 - 14 hours wasn't enough to complete my user experience.
So far with my White Z30 i am incredibly impressed the battery is well over a day for once I actually can forget to carry a charger. I literally have been conditioned by almost all manufacturers (I've had them all) to not expect a days worth of smartphone use.
This phones battery re-writes the rules. The extra real estate on the screen is brilliant although I did have to get used to the lower resolution. the extra power from the GPU makes a noticeable difference and improves on the experience of the Z10.
I think if you have small hands or are on the fence about Blackberry Buy a Z10 i picked mine up for 190 sim free and i genuinely laughed walking out the shop at the bargain and value for money.
As for the Z30 if you have a Z10 and want more battery juice a better experience do not hesitate to make the switch. In my opinion out of the iPhone 5, HTC one (which came close) samsung gs3 and gs4 Lumia 920 and the Z10 this is the most versatile phone to use and is very underrated.
I was an avid Blackberry Hater how Ironic i'm now singing there praise… it is rightfully deserved.

Thats correct, BB10 is amazing great job for Blackberry, you are right blackberry need more advertisement and show them how BB10 works. im currently using BBq10 and it works very well. also my cousin doesn't know how bb10 does.

MestreMur, 31 Mar 20141. Screen Reader is amazing and a native app. 2. Speakers are good enough... Better than HTC ... moreYeah blackberry os10 all model are good I am also using blackberry os10 model can u give me your pin
Tex, 01 Apr 2014Does it play youtube videos?Of course it plays youtube videos and it works every bit a good as it does on Android. Also, remember that BB10 supports Flash in the web browser, giving it a big advantage over most Android phones when it comes to playing Flash videos online. Several sites still does not have good HTML5 video support, you will not experience problems because of that on a BlackBerry.
1. Screen Reader is amazing and a native app.
2. Speakers are good enough... Better than HTC One M7.
3. Surf internet with HTML5, Adobe Flash and smooth, like your PC.
4. Call quality and sound is real and amazing. More than 4 week of no one fail call.
5. Battery: all day of hard use. Doesn't matter what you do.
6. SD card if you want extra music or videos.
7. Blackberry Hub, 3 years ahead of any other system.
8. Faster recharged.
9. Amazing original BB accessories (folder cover and pocket leather cover, mobile charged).
10. Keyboard and writing years ahead of any other device.
11. Alarm setting, better than others devices.
12. The screen at night doesn't hurt yours eyes (natural light).
13. Multitask faster than others devices.
14. Good materials made, and good grip.
1. When you use the scanner with flash, produce an white effect to all documents.
2. Haters want to attack you for use an a faster mobile than Ipad and Galaxys...
Anomynous, 28 Mar 2014I am quite sure it will become permanent. it will be upto next 60 days..and not more than that
Anomynous, 29 Mar 2014Get the Z10, less than half price and same performance and better pixel density. Act fast, Z10... moreI also heard about its drawback.. M using ur bb9630 n m very much depressd about its slow processing!!! Nw m luking to by Z10 but as bb is a US model so m nt so sure dat can I get d original piece of dat smartphone???
Z30 got a Quadcore Adreno 320 and a DualCore 1.7GHz...same as the moto X though moto x has extra dual core for voice integration... Also Z30 have 4 microphones, for better voice and natural voice production.. Battery is good especially the phone has lower pixel density which means low power consumption.. The only problem is in the affordability... The phone is not available worldwide, and when you import it, it cost $600 - $520.. The phone is so pricey.. I think this is the only weakness
Tse, 29 Mar 2014This two mobile,which is best to buy the iphone 5s or blackberry z30Get the Z10, less than half price and same performance and better pixel density. Act fast, Z10 isnt going to be around forever and is in very high demand and often sold out.
Z30 would be great if it had higher pixel density, i dont understand how BB could think that they could sell a flagship with so outdated PPI.
Do not understand why such a smooth BB10 OS is failing. I have used iPhones and Samsungs,
recently started using BB Z10. It is the best phone I have ever used. It is like I do not want to go back to Apple or Android world. After 10.2.1 update it is amazing. Waiting for 10.3 update which is coming soon. Looking forward to buy bigger Z30.
Blackberry is very weak in marketing and advertising and needs to invest in the same.
Lot of people in my company even do not know that BB 10 exists and how good it is until I show them.
People still think BB means OS7 and older looks. When I show them Z10 they say is it Blackberry? They are really impressed with the phone and BB10 OS
Advertise and let people know that 80% of the Android apps work after 10.2.1 update and after installing
Snap or Amazon store. Snap is very easy to install, even kid can do it.
Snap = Google Play
Some people are worried to buy on specs as BBZ10 or Z30 do not have quad CPU or same RAM like Samsung phones.
But try to understand that BB10 on QNX do no not require beefed up hardware to work smooth.
Hardware war is only between Androids. Apple phones are still on dual core but still selling in millions.
BB10 Dual Core on QNX technology = Android Quad Core
Try new Blackberry, you will never regret.
Guys...I have downloaded MoSIP app from blackberry world..but it is asking for brand pin...for registration....Anyone know the brand pin of blackberry z30...please help me
This is an excellent mobile in all respects, and sports the best OS, Maybe the screen could be better but the price is a killer when you can buy 2 Z10's for less than the price of one Z30, so that is exactly what I did. Then updated to os 10.2.1 and very happy with the performance of the Z10. Size was another factor. A big screen mobile is a pain to carry around all day. OK so I have to carry an external battery but I always do that for every mobile I had. Pity about the price.
