dele, 10 Aug 2015please i want to findout which one is better htc desire 820 or blackberry in terms of quality it depends on your usage pattern. If you are a professional where you have to be on constant touch with mails and other works then better go for this device. It has all the necessary apps in its native account to support. Whereas an Android is out and out device for your other needs and of course still you can use for all your professional needs. But having used both these platforms for at least a decade i can vouchsafe that Blackberry devices are robust and efficient than the androids. Presently I am using an Android Device One Plus which has great specifications to boost for its price, but unfortunately once you put in to heavy usage literally it sucks and hangs a lot. All the android devices, irrespective of its major specifications will start its down slide journey after 6 months, for sure. Battery is another issue with android. It will not stand for more than 6 hours and you must carry a power bank and the kind of real multi tasking one do with a Blackberry device is simply cant work with any Android device. In a nut shell, Android is for casual users and Blackberry is for professionals. I am planning to go back once again to Blackberry OS-Passport device( I had BB Z10 and gave it up purely because of its poor battery back up in spite of its having the best OS) as my Android is giving huge problem and its affecting my professional productivity.
mahe, 15 Aug 2015My BlackBerry z30 mobile battery is 6 to 8 hours only in normal useage on 2g network... I purc... moreImpossible man, I bought one week ago, and touch wood my z30 battery rocks on heavy usage like 3hr talk on both 2 and 3g, 2 to 3 hr Internet browsing on WiFi and 3g network, and 2 hr gaming. Battery last 2 days remains 18%. Don't believe on rumours. Some companies appointed the people for writing bad reviews. It is the best phone on earth even two years old but better than galaxy s6. Believe me or come to my home and see.
ykay, 22 Aug 2015pls,hw much u put in swap in z30 Excuse me? I don't understand.
Daniel, 24 Aug 2015What about camera ? I don't need to take professional pictures, but on this site when you look... moreNo its decent and very nice.. updat it to 10.3.2.. phone is more excellent than you think.. in my view the best phone
Why my z30 s headset quality is bad?! Its awful... once I checked q10 s headset and I amazed but this one looks like that but the quality is awful
What about camera ? I don't need to take professional pictures, but on this site when you look at "check quality" the quality of photos are really bad, even my old iPhone 4 is much, much better.
P.S. The BB Z10 photos looks much better even though they have the same cameras.
Every official Blackberry App for BB10 runs buttery smooth since it's optimized with the BB10 OS. I did tried installing Android Apps via Amazon Apps Store. All those Android apps are crap, and they all crash even before using them. Terrible!!! Blackberry World has some worthy apps in it. Just pick the ones that suit your needs. By the way, I only use Blackberry 10 native apps on my Blackberry smartphones.
Aswath, 19 Aug 2015I am interested in buying this phone, please inform if android apps can be installedIt can install Android apps. I used Snap in my BlackBerry Z10, it can installed and used Opera Mini 7.6, it can used Kalender Indonesia, can use and run PlayStation using ePSXe apk, and many.
Aswath, 19 Aug 2015I am interested in buying this phone, please inform if android apps can be installedYes you can istall android apps via the amazon app store, 1mobile market and google play store but the last one i talked about require a little bit of work so it can accept google play services but for the rest you are goog. Enjoy it
Ebbygirl1, 15 Aug 2015Can the kindle be downloaded to the BBZ30?There is an official kindle for Blackberry app on BB World. Very smooth
Anjan, 18 Aug 2015Can we use skype??? Yes sir. Skype is available for Blackberry. Smooth app. File sharing rocks on here vs the iPhone Skype version which restricts it
Aswath, 19 Aug 2015I am interested in buying this phone, please inform if android apps can be installedDepends which Android apps you need. Blackberry has many Built-In app and features and Built-for-Blackberry apps on Blackberry World that run super smooth! Then you have the android apps that come from Amazon Appstore.. I try to use them as LEAST as possible as they tend to be a bit laggy and not very smooth to be honest yet get the job done.
Thapz, 19 Aug 2015Hi guys, what's the story about BB & Youtube? What about vines, is Z30 able to play vines?YouTube on the browser is a breeze man. You are able to comment while watching the video.. also the video plays on the background and also plays while you lock the phone with the music keys manipulating volume and play/pause. Basically you can use YouTube as a music player lol.. video is crisp and smooth, and honestly it runs much smoother than it does on the LG G4 HTC One M9 or Samsung Galaxy S6 YouTube apps or their browser. It does have a "Youtube player app built for Blackberry and also a Vine app for blackberry called WHINE which works just like Vine but with more features.. you can save videos directly from the Whine App and play them, comment, favorite, follow, DMs. Its pretty cool.
Hi guys, what's the story about BB & Youtube? What about vines, is Z30 able to play vines?
