AnonD-168372, 13 May 2014Can I install apk on this phone, and does it have file manager? Yes you can install apk easily via File Manager. All you need to do is to put apk somewhere on your phone and to run it via File Manager. But there is easier way to install Android apps on Blackberry OS 10. You just need to load one apk - thats Snap application bar or apk. After that you will have Snap application installed on your device which is Google Play Store in basic. After that you can install ANY Android app from Snap app store with just few clicks.

Both devices work great, OS is fluid , fast, easy to use. No bugs, no slow downs, no lags what is usual with all flagship android and iphone devices. Built quality is best on market, I know that because I have dozen of other devices before Blackberry Z10 and Z30. For example my Sony Xperia Z1 have spots which cant be removed and big scratch near camera lense on the back and it was in case from day 1! I never used any case for Blackberry Z10 and it doesn't have any scratch or damage neither on back or front. Blackberry Z10 got rubberized back and Z30 have carbon fiber which looks great quality as Z10 back. I just got Z30 few days ago and I will see is Z30 built quality same as on Z10. Time will tell. My wife also have Blackberry 9380 which is old like 4-5 years and this device also does not have any scratches.
So you cant get wrong with Blackberry 10 OS - especially with Z30 and Z10.
Also I see that you dont like 5 inch screen phones. In that case stick with Z10 - you cant get better phone than that with 4.2 inch screen size. It has gorgeous IPS LCD HD screen . I dont think you can get better screen on that size.
Z30 is same experience like Z10 but with bigger screen with Super AMOLED technology instead IPS LCD and stronger battery. Someone like bigger screen devices and someone like smaller that is personal thing. But what is important you have different screen sizes to choose from so nobody cant tell that Blackberry does not have device for him.

Why zoom in when its already easy to read? Zooming in results in lots and lots of panning and scrolling and that is not only inconvenient but also loads the CPUs more and then drains the battery faster.

Im very satisfied with BB10 and my Z10 but they need better phones to keep me as customer. Im keeping an eye on iPhone 6 and Z2 Compact, if BB should fail to bring a desirable phone that is not ridiculously big like Z30, i already been through 5.5 and 5 inch phones and not going back there but that doesnt mean i am willing to be stuck with 2012 display resolutions.
Also battery autonomy is great on Blackberry Z30. It easily lasts two days for me with moderate use.

I opened gsmarena.com desktop version on both devices and picture is same with zooming . Only difference I see is that white color od Xperia Z1 is brighter than on Z30 which is normal because Z1 have LCD screen and Z30 have Super AMOLED screen.
Z30 is better device because Android SUCKS. I updated Sony Xperia Z1 to latest android 4.4.2 Kitkat and since then device is laggy, slow, when I try to open something it opens some other thing - like I click on Chrome icon and Android opens Phone . I click on Message icon and it opens Chrome etc.
Problem here is not hardware - hardware is good, problem is that Android is bad and that all Android companies are realeasing ROMs full of bugs.
Blackberry OS 10 is 1000 times better OS than Android and thats what gives edge to Z30 over Sony Xperia Z1 to me. No bugs, no lags, it doesnt slow ever and never. I also have Blackberry Z10 for more than year. I also installed all apps I have on Z1 via Snap on Blackberry Z30 and everything works fine - for example Teamviewer.
Thats why I will dump Sony Xperia Z1 soon. I like camera on this device, it looks good, but Blackberry Z30 is simply better device because I use it mainly for calling, browsing and emails.

zahra, 12 May 2014hi i didnt get it yet and i know its decent and perfect but i worry about its screen ppi.how is it?The resolution is not bad, its not a big problem, just not as good as the Full HD displays of some other phones, especially when reading small text the difference is big. For facebook, photo and video you will not notice any difference.

If you still cant see the difference you need to see an optician, i guess you are far sighted (inability to focus at close objects), it comes so gradually and slowly that most people dont notice it before they get much older but the optician can tell you in a few minutes, and with reading glasses you will finally see what the rest of us see.
By the way, your sample photos are limited by the camera resolution, its not a good example.

zahra, 12 May 2014hi i didnt get it yet and i know its decent and perfect but i worry about its screen ppi.how is it?I dont see any difference between Z1 screen which have 441 PPI and Z30 screen which have 269 PPI. Its perfect and there is no any pixelisation.

And about PPI thing:
Guys that is completely irrelevant and human eye cant see difference between 291 or 441 PPI. IMHO anything above 250 PPI is fine. I compared screens of Blackberry Z30 and Sony Xperia Z1 by watching same full hd pictures and full hd videos on both devices and I can tell you there is no any pixelisation or difference in screen quality between these two devices. Even more, Z30 gives me better picture than Sony Xperia Z1 because his colors are more vivid and natural. Only color which looks little better on Z1 is white. All other colors are better on Z30. Look for yourself here
This is best device I ever head and it eats iOS and any Android for breakfast! I had HTC One X+ and Sony Xperia Z1 before Z30 and I cant tell you that Z30 works waay more better faster and without any lag as Android devices does. Blackberry 10 does not need quad core processors to be better, it works faster and better than both iOS and Android with dual core on same way as Linux works faster and better than Windows with inferior hardware.
Anyone who ever goes to the Blackberry OS 10 never goes back! And you can also install any Android applications from Google Market one same way as Android devices via application called Snap.
Why Blackberry OS 10 works faster? Because it is based on QNX which is best world OS, which does not allow that some bugged application crash whole device and slow it down.
Battery on my Z30 lasts 2 days.
Take this device guys believe me it is best device on market especially if you need it for email and messaging .
