I have been researching all the time and past 4 years have bought and sold dozens of cellphone finding a good one according to my needs. And finally, found the prefect phone and why I say this, is because of its OS which is smoother than iOS and Android, secondly battery life which is awesome after heavy browsing, chatting, watching videos and listening to music. Least but not last gaming which is very much improved compared to other devices.
Whatever I have mentioned above are the basic things every cellphone user does on regular basis. And the most important thing which I noticed when you have a BlackBerry phone is that, you will always feel Unique from others holding it....Infact I would give this phone a Tagline.
"THE WORLD'S MOST AMAZING SMARTPHONE...."
local vendor in saudi is trying to get rid of blackberry stock by placing an offer ....but BB is not even willing to put any offer and come up with a change
Display: 5.0 inches IPS Full HD
Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 805
Pin: 3000 mAh
Infrared port: Yes
As of today you will be able to make phone calls through BBM to iphone and Android devices via wifi and/or data plan. Next will be video calls (which can allready be done with BB devices). Keep moving!
I am using Z30 for 5 months and each day I'm using it I like it more. Z30 is amazing. Battery is really outstanding. Best phone I ever had. Sometimes I play with my wife's iphone 5S and definitely I prefer the Z30. I'm not saying iphone is not good, it's good but my Z30 just fill better my needs. I've also a Samsung S3 (which I never liked), specially because S3 battery sucks and I dislike android environment (personal reasons, I'm not saying is not good). I wonder why so many people have such bad experience with Z30 (did they really have tested it?). Now that I have updated the OS to 10.2.1 is even better (yes now you can download android apps directly without need to side load). So now the apps gap that so many people complained about doesn't longer exists (although to be honest I didn't feel the need and I have downloaded only a couple of android apps since the update). So please give a try to this gem and post real and honest reviews. The last but not the least: do you prefer to have a phone that everybody uses or something different and good?

all the crazy android fans and ios fans please stay out of here, this is a bb fan page for people who have REALLY used the phone!!! Don't come here and post lies and junks, android(google) won't pay you for that!!!
Have been using this BB Z30 for a month now. This phone is nothing less than awesome. This will definitely beat any freaking phone out there by a mile be it android or IOS or what so ever. If you are wondering if i can make such a remark, am a mobile application tester and i use all sorts of mobiles daily. This is my first blackberry phone and I love it. BB OS10 is the best i have used. If you are complaining about applications, with OS 10.2, you can pretty much port any android app you want and 90% of them work better in BB than on android phones. Call clarity is at the best, Battery is better than any android phones out there and I get 2 days solid backup. I am in the US and using STA100-5 and everything works perfect for me. If you are in a dilemma about this phone, just buy it you wont regret.
AnonD-230795, 05 Feb 2014In terms of gaming or the phone speed.as for games I think android haS it all.Android has all hardware but it has too much lagg because of heavy ram using, so much backround apps. Android is such a rubbish. Have you ever used any bb os 10 device ? I think you haven't yet.

I used quad core 2.265Ghz Lg G2 and i sold it in a week because of so much lagg with fresh hard reset. You musnt compare an android device and bb os device by specs. Because i promise bb z10 will beat all of the android devices in performance with low specs. Bb os is the second iOS its still being developed. Z30 is the best now until the next bb os device. Forever BlackBerry and BlackBerry OS...
Been using blackberry for more than 10 years. unfortunatly Q10 is the only unit that is not crap. hopefully BlackBerry will be able to regain its market share.
