does BB z3 equipped with BIS (blackberry internet services)? I am working on board passenger vessel we travel the world. The problem we had with BB 10 series (Q10, Z10 etc..) is they don't have BIS. Unlike those versions - BB Bold 9900 and below, they all have BIS. You cannot enjoy a monthly data bundle of £5 per month as it consumes your credit after consuming all you data allowance. If this Z3 has BIS then I would definitely buy it. Thanks everyone.
At least BB has to release 10.3 fixing all bugs associated with 10.2, otherwise people will forget BB.

Do not compare blackberry with android.. blackberry os is the best os. Go check digit magazines longest os comparison, you will know expert opinion. And for doubt clearance, BlackBerry z3 is a good phone with 2 powerful krait cores and high speed 1.5gb ddr3 ram. You can side load any huge android app, performance is on par with moto g, grand 2, s4 mini xperia t2 ultra.. fluid game playback, thanks to adreno 305 running on qHD display. The camera is average. But display is good, if not spectacular. No pixellation. And yes all network is supported. I used airtel 3g and speeds peered are 21mbps though it can go upto 42mbps with voda and max speeds in wifi are 200mbps peering

You should go to market and buy any BlackBerry 10 devise(Z10,Z30,Z3).....and be sure it could have the latest version...use it for a month and than come back here to give your best opinion...you can't take anything wrong without being close to it...i've use all OS with diffrent brands but finally choose BlackBerry...u can also try...(Android is just ruff OS without perfection)....sorry again.
You obviously don't have clue what you are talking about so let me give you brief info of the nonsenses you said:
There are so many so different Android mobiles nowadays that calling them a junk is pure nonsense. Sure there are lot's of cheap, crappy, underpowered models, but same is on any other platform with wide range of models (Apple is exception since it produce only higher class device).
Google play has quite number of useless apps because it's developers are not monitored as strictly as iOS developers, but useless apps can be found on any other platform.
Guess what, any phone on any platform heats up when used extensively (high CPU and GPU usage) same as any computer, and it also heats up during battery charge, it is not specific to Android (or any other platform).
If you needed to restart your Android phone every 2-3 days then you certainly got defective unit. Android phones that I used works for months without restarting.
Apple is premium brand and it produce only higher class smartphones. Smartphones like: Tag, Virtue and Lamborghini are not premium but luxury brands, often made with luxurious materials and with extravagant design, but they are not targeted at same market part as Apple iPhone (or high class Android phones), and total market share of all these luxury brand smartphones is so diminutive that it's even smaller then BlackBerry market share.
Nowadays almost everything is made in China, and, although lot's of crappy products comes from China, it doesn't mean that China cannot produce high quality product. Actually it can, and it does.
BlackBerry is not made in China, it's made in Hungary, but frankly I don't see how this fact might be proof of quality. Everything made in Hungary can be made in China, and cheaper too. Quality of product depends on good construction design, quality materials used, and most important quality control, and it's not related to geographic location of production.
About the quality of BlackBerry devices I could write novel, but long story short, Curve series quality is as equal as cheap class Android phones, but far pricier, Bold series is as equal as higher class Android phone, but nothing spectacular.
At the end you say: "Though BB lack with some applications and games but then that's not what smartphones are build for.." so what are the smartphones made for?! The lack of 'some' (and some of these are widely used on other platforms) applications is one of the main reason for such small market share of BB phones. BB platform can be the best in the world, but this will not prevent disappearance from market if their management continues to make bad business decisions.
