Interesting reading the comments.
The comments supporting the phone provide the details on what they like and why.
Almost all those being critical of the phone lack details on what specifically they're doing with the phone when they have a problem or just make a general comment that us who do own the phone know just isn't true. When asked for details you just hear crickets.
The Z30 is a great phone. Anyone bashing it for supposed low specs (other than the camera), batter life or screen display are clueless about the phone and the OS and should probably go buy a Samsung.
Anyone critical of BB for it's support are equally misinformed. BB support for the phones using BOS-10 is second to none. Only one that comes close is Sony in my opinion. (Sorry iphone users, Apple OS development can't figure out how to release new revisions without re-introducing old bugs - I've owned 4 iphones going back to the original and ending with the 5 so don't tell me different. Examples: wi-fi connectivity issues and the recurring battery drain issue that comes up with every new major release.)
If Blackberry put the same type of marketing behind their phones that Samsung or Apple do I am sure Blackberry sales would be showing great quarter over quarter sales numbers. Look no further than HTC to see another example of a company with a great phone (the ONE) with sales that haven't met expectations.
If cost is an issue in buying a Z10 or Z30, get the Z3 or pickup a use Z10. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

I've noticed that when I go into a couple of the large phone shops at the mall the Samsung, LG and a few of the other phones on display have the finish wearing off the buttons or edges or backs. The Blackberry Z10 that's been on display for over a year now looks as good as new.
As long as the company keeps up the high quality and high level of support for updating the OS I'll continue to buy Blackberry.

Cezopa2, 26 Apr 2014HI I got my new blackberry z30 3days ago. As my user opinions z30 is the best phone in the wor... moreLike the other person said, BB is doing very little marketing/advertising.
I've owned both the Z10 and Z30. When I told friends I was selling my Z10 they were falling over themselves to buy it from me. Both handsets are very good, the OS is simply awesome (especially given it was a ground up build of a new OS and had very few bugs) and the last 2 releases have improved on a number of features, including the ability and support for sideloading Android applications.
The lack of applications with the Z10 when it first came out was certainly a drawback, but no more. BB is doing a very good job of support and improving it's product. Anyone who buys any one of the Z-line phones with BOS 10 will not be disappointed unless your completely fixated on the camera's MP specs.
Franz, 29 Apr 2014Can anyone tell why my z30 battery is frequent get over heat like 35c and above..how to fix th... moreThe likely reason your battery is getting hot is because you're either running a cpu/graphics intensive game or downloading multiple things or surfing through multiple tabs at the same time. This has been my experience.
Point is this: It doesn't matter. You're working the phone hard and it doesn't damage it one bit.
If your battery is always that warm all the time then take it to the shop.
Battery life with this phone is great. At least 2 days sometimes up to 3 days.
I think Android is best than any other phones.android is user frndly.black berry or iphone is not so user frndly like android.you can do every think that you want to do in a smart phone.you can change its rom.you can expand your ram & storage.but you can't do it on black... or ip... so i lv android smart phns.
I never used blackberry before but after using
Q5 for my first blackberry phone. I have to admit that the smartphone with new BB10 OS is the best smartphone ahead of others.

Can you try reloading the OS ( after taking a backup for later restoration). Sometimes this might solve the issue.
There are leaked OSs autoloaders available( newer versions) as well. If you don't mind tinkering a bit, you may try them as well.

FaDi, 28 Apr 2014bcz it has poor camera, its only 8mgb with low resolution! I see. Then, in your opinion, a smartphone is just a camera? If that is the case, which alternative do you recommend?
Blackberry Lover, 27 Apr 2014It's a perfect phone. Why people don't understand that.because blackberry has the lack of advertisement.
