But you must have a "cobalt patch".
Whit google play store the Phone is very stable and there are no app that no funziona or only the app that require an Android version up 4.3.

Same with Z30 (using since June 2014) - battery life is much better as it's 2,880mAH, and by the way, I use my phone extensively (making and receiving 30-40 calls a day, some spanning more than 5-10 minutes also, viewing mails of my 11 (10 Business + 1 Personal) e-mail A/Cs, using WhatsApp (40-50 posts receiving as well as sending in total).
Camera is perfect - using it for even taking snaps of machines, people,....
Exploring to upgrade to BkaclBerry PRIV, as Z30 is not as fast as I need a phone to be.

Please i can not access blackberry world from my z30.it shows an error has occurred and blackberry world will be closed. try waiting a few minutes and reopening blackberry world.
please i need your help.
Just a hint: I was unhappy about the slow and sluggish auto focus. It was hard to get a clear photo quickly (snap shot). So I switsched off the "auto suggest" feature in the camera settings. It seems that this feature slows down the auto focus. The camera works a lot faster now, at least for me.

arm, 03 Feb 2016can we instral google play store to z 30 with the update of 10.3 ? if yes ,is it allow all the appsSome android apps can run in BlackBerry 10, however many cannot. Android Apps that change the interface like custom launchers, or widget apps will not work. Only apps that run in a separate window like Facebook or games will work.
arm, 03 Feb 2016can we instral google play store to z 30 with the update of 10.3 ? if yes ,is it allow all the appsNo you cannot install Google play on a BlackBerry. The 10.3 update includes the Amazon app store which has the most popular android apps. You can install .Apk files ( that's the suffix for an android app.) from anywhere on the internet. There are literally hundreds of online "app stores" from which you can download android apps.
Hi and thanks everyone for the good information I found here.
I have a small problem. I updated my BB Z30 from OS 10.2 to OS 10.3.2. Now with Blackberry 10.3.2 the battery drains much faster than before updating. Does anyone know if it is possible to go back to 10.2 OS? Or is there a newer version of the OS going to be available soon for Z30 to update? Because I don't like BB 10.3.2 at all. Or is there a way to make the battery last longer, like before updating? Thanks
thanks for reply my problem is solved my hand set blackberry Z30 is ok 4g network

interceptor, 26 Jan 2016i read good and bad opinions...what is like in real life? is it stable,solid built? if I buy a... moreThe z30 is still a viable device, and BlackBerry 10 is a solid and stable operating system. It is very different from Android and ios. Regarding its age...What's more important than the specs of the hardware is how well it runs the software. The z30 runs smoothly and the BlackBerry 10 interface is intuitive and natural once you get use to the gestures. I understand your concerns about updating software, however unlike other platforms software updates that seem to over work older devices and cause them to lag a bit BlackBerry 10 performance is enhanced with each update on all BlackBerry devices. Your phone will actually run better after the software updates.
bhatti, 02 Feb 2016Helo brothers my bbz30 not support the 4g network and imo voice call also working now what can... moreCheck your network frequencies, you should be able to find that info with a quick search, then compare them to the frequencies your z30 model uses, the z30 comes in different models that use different frequencies for different regions. sta100-2, sta100-3 and so on. You may find that your model will not be compatible with your GSM network. It that is the case I recommend disabling the LTE radio in the engineering screen. This will help save a little battery. If you need I can explain how to do that in another post. Hope that helps.
