i am a big fan of blackberry here is a genuine review of this phone.
I HAVE NOT ADDED SIM YET. Well that does not make a difference when the phone is smart here are problems with BlackBerry Z3. It has been 4 days and both pros and cons are mentioned
Best about BBZ3
bb hub screen is where all apps are integrated you don't have to swap between apps to check messages
"single screen multi notifications"
unlike android and wp8.1 bb has come up with a instant notifier where whatsapp msgs can be replied just by hitting on reply. it does not change app it masks current app and sends MSG with out app swapp
TOUCH AND SENSITIVITY
touch is amazing on this phone. it feels so good and smooth.its a complete multi gesture phone with no home, back, search buttons.have not seen this in any budget phone.
"No Buttons Attached"
good speaker it does not buzz on full volume as in lumia 625 // micromaxx doodle etc... and music can be clearly herd unlike in other phones with rear side speaker when placed with screen upwards.
The best part about this is on a long press it acts like a next button (vol up) or previous button (vol down) there is a dedicated voice control button acts like play/pause button when music is on.
"MULTI TASKING BUTTONS"
compared to other phones this has good battery life. three hours of skype call on lumia runs out of battery, on a android it was about one and half to two hours but this phones battery got reduced to 60% in one and half hour skype call. on stand-by mode with after skype call it got reduced to 49% in 9 hours
“LUMIA , MOTO G > BLACKBERRY Z3 > OTHER BUDGET ANDROID PHONES” –my opinion.
It has good camera but a bad camera app with a LED flash, Noise cancellation at the rear side. Back panel with good grip it has GORILLA GLASS screen guards not required. U can integrate android apps bu installing a android apk from www.1mobile.com
1. Phone hangs a lot
2. After long stand-by mode sound notifications does not work only LED notifies.
3. Screen integration is worst. When you rotate screen it does not readily modify.
4. Skype call has worst experience with 30% of rectangular self image screen
5. I do not know what is wrong with sensors “shake” option on wechat does not work app keeps crashing
6. If I put memory card it does not show songs in music player, videos in video player but if you access from file manager it does. You cannot play music after a long stand by. Only a phone restart can fix this and this keeps repeating after every stand by mode
7. Apps keep crashing. I did install android apk and downloaded same apps which were on bbworld but it is even worse than this
I took this to blackberry service center and they say there is nothing wrong with phone. All they told is "we are concerned about blackberry hardware and software and not apps"
buy two celkon slimmest android phones if you are not a brand freak like me for the same price gift one to your loved ones. i regret a lot buying this phone. shall demand for a refund now.
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE.
"BLACKBERRY Z3 IS SMARTEST AND LAZIEST PHONE. WHICH COULD ONLY BE GIFTED TO ENEMIES"
When I bought was good, but I face many problems:
1. Voice clarity many times
2. Signal disable while talking most of times
3. Data storage in phone only not in memory card
4. Flip cover not available till now,
Thus, I recomend to new buyers to buy safely.

Kobussc, 18 Sep 2014Not impressed. Older Blackberries worked better. It does not have a cancel button which for m... more".......... I will switch back to Android rather"
All the best. See you in the next life :-)
hey blackberry is not a android nd ios device that you will play games. its not for the people who have nothing to work except playing game on the phone.its not a entertainment phone. blackberry for business class people.
Not impressed. Older Blackberries worked better. It does not have a cancel button which for me is frustrating. It also does not have much to offer in terms of apps compared to Android / Apple. The Facebook app has not been updated in ages. Apps on previous versions are not compatible on the new operating system. The large screen is an improvement and the price reasonable but Blackberry development seems to be going backwards rather than forward in development and I will switch back to Android rather
