What a great phone. I thought the size might be too big but it's perfect. So insanely fast and the battery life is the best I've seen. My friend's S4 is dead constantly. Just goes to show how efficient BlackBerry OS really is.
This has to be the most underrated super phone on the planet. Try it, you will NOT be Disappointed.
Been with Android since it was first introduced. Coming from Nokia Symbian, android was the best OS I ever used, during the course tried iOS, it was 'okay', then recently decided to give blackberry a chance, and i cant express how impress iam, used note 2, s4 but blackberry 10 in my opinion is what i call smoothness and usability truly packed together.
One thing that u guys should know, that Operating system is something different than the hard features of the phone. If you looking for a OS to use than Blackberry 10 is the one if your looking for camera/heartbeat monitor than s5 for you.
I think that this Blackberry Z30 is great in many ways. It has very good battery life, nice performance (not lagging or something) even though it is still using a dual core, not like android phones, and the latest Blackberry software update 10.2.1 made it possible to open android application on Blackberry devices. nice one👍
Sohail, 15 Apr 2014Hello there,
I'm planning to buy a smartphone.
I have couple of handsets in mind, but co... moreIf you dont mind about size then Z30 is the way to go. I had Xperia Z and it was mostly great but battery was not all that great, the display sucked battery dry too fast, and Android is turning into a joke the way Google use it to promote their own services, which basically means trying to control you with endless advertizing.
Z10 is of course more compact and has sharper display than Z30 but not as good battery. Price is also a Z10 advantage.
i ve used iPhones, Sony, samsung mobiles and now finally im stucked with Z30 so far i ve found it the best, only issue is not much apps like IOS and Android available and display is 720p though which is still very impressive, as far as camera is concern i dont use mobile cameras i use normal canon point and shoot with wifi so i transfer my pics easily to my iPad..anyways bottom line is if u can cope with lack of apps i think z30 is not a bad choice last but not the least it has a fine built quality..thanx
I'm planning to buy a smartphone.
I have couple of handsets in mind, but confused which of the following I should go for. Please suggest.
Sony Xperia Z
I don't like Samsung phones.
Please help me out.
Gee, 13 Apr 2014I hear the Z30 is a great phone to use but I'm lost between Z30, Lg pro 2 and Samsung Note 3? ... moreNot Note 3, region locked, worthless.
G Pro 2 is ok if you want Android, the display is sharper than Z30 but the user experience is pretty poor (its Android and LGs current android flavor is ridiculous, i tested the G2 and wondered if it was made for professional clowns). You should go for Xperia Z2 if you really want Android, Sony has a clean UI with less bloat. Doesnt beat BB10 though.
I hear the Z30 is a great phone to use but I'm lost between Z30, Lg pro 2 and Samsung Note 3? Any advice on which phone is best to buy???
All blackberries that run on the OS10 works on normal data. Similar too androids yes. And don't be fooled by how they make the swiping of gestures to be confusing, it's quick to learn. I'm actually impressed by how fast the new blackberry's work and respond.
can you please let me know is z30 require bb data plan for email or email can receive on normal internet plan like android phone?

Good mobile from blackberry...instead of samsung, nokia HTC...bcoz all runs with android OS..it doesnt matter whether u buy a samsung or HTC all are same. only a brand name change.
Style, 09 Apr 2014Doesn't it freeze like curve & bold?@Style - No, it doesn't.
Basically, it uses Unix witch-craft to separate the core OS from the applications and services that run on it (none of the other phones can do this yet) - this means that even if an application or service crashes, the OS doesn't.
The old phones ran on Java which is the worst programming language since Cave Paintings...doesn't scale very well.
Arsall, 08 Apr 2014i checked the quality of this camera which seems very poor. can anyone share hands on experien... moreThe camera hardware is actually very good; will probably improve a lot in future software updates. In the meanwhile, try installing Android Camera FV-5 for much improved pic quality (e.g. ISO 50 sensitivity settings)

So intrusive, and getting worse, ads and privacy violations is what they profit from. I switched to BlackBerry because i like to be left alone sometimes at least, i need a break Google, back off a little please.
