Stylz1985, 07 Apr 2014First of all its a phone under $200 for emerging markets...with that being in mind 5mp is more... moreI used a Z10 for 2 weeks, then I decided to sell it becouse the OS is not user friendly like others OS (including bb os 7). A "home" button (mecanic or onscreen) it's a must. And a decent icons too. They employed the butcher for icons design, I think. And the number of usefull applications will go to death that OS. If Z 10 it run slowly and buggy with 2gb of RAM, how you think Z3 will run ?! Z3 is a kitch in estetically terms...
Specs should have been updated, all leaked pics look to be the real thing, the camera has an LED flash. Big mistake by Nokia to not include one on the Lumia 525 and 630, BlackBerry Z3 is gonna win over those people who dont like Android but want a cheap phone with a ok camera. I assume the Z3 also has autofocus but we need to wait for confirmation on that one.

You guys make marketing fool you.....you do know a 50 inch 1080p TV has a PPI of only 44 PPI??? Do you complain that its pixelated or blurry????? 220ppi for a 5 inch phone is perfect....the playbook is 7 inches and 170ppi and the screen is sharp and clear as day....SO UNTIL YOU SEE THE PHONE DO NO PASS ANY JUDGEMENT.....
sunny, 07 Apr 2014what are you releasing some out dated phones.... 5 mp and what resolution.... blackberry is no... moreFirst of all its a phone under $200 for emerging markets...with that being in mind 5mp is more than enough for that price tag..compare this phone and specs to the low end android devices Galaxy Grand....and Nokia Lumia low end phone under 200 dollars....and remember BB10 is optimized so the software will run perfectly on this phone.....THIS PHONE IS NOT A FLAGSHIP PHONE ITS PRICED UNDER $200 DOLLARS PEOPLE REMEMBER THAT....YOU CANT EXPECT QUAD CORE 16GB SOTRAGE AND 16MP CAMERA FOR THAT PRICE IT IS FOR EMERGING MARKETS FIRST.

Do you see people complain that it isnt sharp or its pixelated...no....
I see today the photos of Z3. Ugly, a shame for Blackberry brand...The 5 years plan of Mr. Chen is a failure. There are more best and cheapest smartphone on the market.
seriously. ..... seriously ..... a 5" screen with 221ppi ..... what is this?? the 19th century?? Blackberry are totally determined to tighten that noose they have on their neck. R.I.P blackberry. you were great when you were Bold.
as for now all that comes from you is just zzzzzzzZZZZZZZ #SLEEPFest
what are you releasing some out dated phones.... 5 mp and what resolution.... blackberry is not working hard to get its pride back.
Z3 Jakarta could fit a potential sub segment. With BB 10 the majority of youngster of mid to low SC may enjoy the vast range of app in subst to androids. Plus BB excl image and low price. Still, bad display resolution may hamper

Anonymous, 25 Feb 2014Blackberry give up!Why should they? The market will determine who and when a company is irrelevant. So just be cool and stop hating.

By the way, its not a BlackBerry but a Foxconn mobile phone, BB provides the OS and software and they spilt the profit 50/50.
I don't want to knock this phone before it's released however, it's 5" screen with low resolution!!!! What are BB playing at!!!! Why would I want to go backwards rather than forwards with all this new technology coming out!!! ????
I am now ever more confident that BB now has finally found the wining formula with the Z3 and it makes me all the more happier.
This is almost the *exact* same phone as the Jolla phone. Even down to the screen resolution. The only thing different is the OS, and the lack of "the other half," although it seems that this device still retains the removable battery cover. It even has an FM radio.
If it is really less than $200 USD, I'm getting one.
