ian, 14 May 2014it looks great but much better if it is an android phone.Dont agree - android leaks like a sieve and is for people who are too lazy with their security and privacy. BB OS 10.2.1 is the best OS on the market easily, and if you must, it will run Android apps and childish games.
ian, 14 May 2014it looks great but much better if it is an android phone.It doesn't need to be an Android phone since it already runs BB10 OS which can do everything Android can do and more out of the box in a simpler and more elegant UI PLUS it can already run the majority of Android apps in addition to BB10 apps.
Kajal shankpur, 14 May 2014Hi guys I now I am using z30. This is the finest phone and is good than android, windows and i... moreWith your hands on experience with the Z30. Is it true that we have the option to subscribe with the local internet subscription or the Z30 or Z20 are stuck with the BIS alone?
Does it work for the local internet subscription? Or do I have to stick with the BIS?
Excellent specs. for a "Cheap" phone but then again, what do we call "Cheap" have to hunt for price.
I like this phone a lot.
I just got it today.
Love the way prediction works.
Love the lightness when running apps.
It's a huge jump for me, from 9800 to this sweet deal Z3
This US$200 device beat those more than US$700 Apple and Android devices in terms of security.
I love bb.....since 2 year am using 9220...waiting for this device to release in India
Please dont judge this device by its dual core processor.
Even iphone 5s has a dual core processor, but still it works smoothly and without any lag
That is bcos iOS is custom designed for dual cores.
In the same way, BlackBerry 10 is also made for dual cores. Even Z30 has a dual core
BlackBerry will also optimize the OS to deliver the best performance.
And 1.5GB ram is more than enough, I have a Z10, n i have 750mb ram that is never used
BlackBerry 10 is a very sleek and smooth OS
Hi guys I now I am using z30. This is the finest phone and is good than android, windows and iphone. So I hope z3 also will be a good.
akash, 13 May 2014This is android phoneYou are right. But people here will never understand your brilliance. Lol you are funny man
[deleted post]you are a liar. 9780 wasnt even out for 8 years. Please do not lie.
I'm using a Q10 and the OS is smooth with no lags.. light hiccups but nothing major to affect user experience..
Dual core processor plus 3G only...not so attractive...this will be another fail for BB.
AnonD-79632, 14 May 2014Its reviews like yours that is beyond ridiculous. The z3 is in no way the best phone, not even... moreI read his post and cant understand why you reply him like that. He isnt saying Z3 is the best but it is a key player in relaunching the BB brand.
4 years ago?? What phone did you have 4 years ago? I had the best at the time, the N900, others will say the best was Galaxy S, with its 8GB storage, 1GHz single core A8 cpu, 512MB RAM, 800x480 resolution. And you are saying that dual Krait 1.2GHz, 1.5GB RAM and 960x540 res isnt better?
Your claims are very much off, even 3 years ago tehre were NOTHING in the market that could have challenged Z3, Galaxy S2 was still inferior in both resolution and CPU power, and even had less RAM, only 1GB.
Value for money, Z3 is great, thats why im getting one, never ever before have we had so much power for so little money. My Z10 has 2GB RAM but its CPU is actually same performance as this one (dual Cortex A9 at 1.5GHz vs dual Krait at 1.2GHz) and i know how well the Z10 performs, and i expect the same performance from Z3.
Now we can discuss WHY BB10 performs so unreasonable well on these relatively weak CPUs, if its microkernels or what but the fact still remains that they DO perform this well.
Now heres a lab test anyone can do at home. Take any Android quadcore flagship, start up Chrome, go to desktop version of a facebook profile, use only desktop functionality and behold the performance. Not that impressive. Some waiting time, some unresponsiveness when open photos in the viewer, for long periods. Now do the same on a Z10, the weak old dual core does it flawless without any lag or unresponsiveness whatsoever, and it does it with full Adobe Flash support.
