Specs in isolation is over done marketing hype. For example the S4 is supposedly already out of date with the S5 coming but frankly no one really needs the S5 with cores galore. Is the SIII out of date - go and ask their users and they dont have a problem. But the problem is Android leaks like a sieve, and the os is far from perfect. I appreciate the flexibility, but so is BB OS, and it is far more secure. If anything, people should be moving to a more secure and efficient os, of which BB os is. It is far too easy to hack an Android.
Munchy , 25 Oct 2013Hey Guys,
Am a iPhone user and have been using iphone 3,3gs,4,4s .. Now am planning to shi... moreWell price wont hold much seeing as a z30 is barely cheaper than a iphone 5s.
You get more screen room and a fresh os.
Quick view of notifications on your lockscreen.
Quick access to prefered apps form your lockscreen instead of just unlock or camera.
Plus with priority hub, bbm and better rated on screen keyboard you got a nice package.
If the z30 doesnt offer enough space then get a 64gb mico sd card for 30 - 40 $ and pop It in for a total of 80gb of storage
Apple wanting 200 $ more for just 64gb total so you saved 160 $ and get 16gb more in end storage.
The z30 also packs a quad core adreno for graphics aka the same graphics as the galaxy s4!!!
Next bring in 2 gigs of ram vs one and a 1.7 giga hertz dual core processor vs a 1.3 dual core and frankly the z30 comes out big time.
The z30 sadly doesnt have quite as good a camera or touch id or as many apps but the more user friendly operating system and greater battery life and bigger screen more than make up for it.
So I say z30 more battery, makes more sense system, can get more storage for less, and costs a little less to begin with while having better specs.
Save money get a z30.
Okay this phone is good on ram with 2 giga bytes, and a quad core adreno for its graphics. While the cpu is weaker at 1.7 ghz dual core but two things must be remembered and its how efficient is a os which bb10 shows to be and how many pixels to push for the screen.
The z30 has a 720p screen which yes isn't as crisp as 1080p but with less pixels to drive the processor can run smoother plus does anyone actually need 1080p screens?
With the new priority hub and better lockscreen notifications hell better then ios or android the experience shines through.
Everyone who trys bb10 says its great mahbe a learning curve but smooth fresh and just flat out great.
Only bad reviews I read were from people who never tryed one out.
I can't wait for my z30 time to drop off this galaxy s2 in my drawer.
Common BB are you @#!$ kidding me, there are TONS of android smartphone that cost far less than half the price you are charging for that given specs. we can pretty much get every single feature that you are offering for free on play store, THE NERVE of bb to charge so much for piece of shit devices is amazing!
dhie, 25 Oct 2013Dual core?? C'mon... are you from prehistoric era?Rubbish - 8 or 4 cores make little or no difference to day to day use of a mobile device. In fact all these cores disguise inefficient operating systems such as Android. I am interested in efficiency and security, not a cover up.
z30 has been around quiet a while, hope gsmarena will do a comprehensive review, comparing spec, os and etc with iphone 5s/5c and note3. tq
dual core....shud quad core? but all iphone 5 are dua core with only 1gb ram compared to z30. even q5 is 2gb ram... all in all it is a great phone. though kust bought my q5, as i prefer qwerty, surely z30 very2 tempting
This Phone hasn't another Processor, cause it doesn't need it! With OS 10 the Phones can run faster and Smoother than using others OS, a Bigger processor, means more power consumption, less baterry life and a heavier phone, that's why they didn't use other, besides the the Pro Snapdragon series are Realy Fast and Goods processors.
Looking at the specs of Z30, it is obvious that RIM- makers of BB phones are once again late to the party. The device is already obsolete comparing with new devices from Samsung, HTC, LG etc. I advise RIM to buckle up and reduce the unreasonable high prices for their devices.
Am a iPhone user and have been using iphone 3,3gs,4,4s .. Now am planning to shift from iphone.. Will blackberry Z30 satisfy me????????? kindly reply soon.. iam going to get one soon.. so plz.... Iphone 5s or Blackbery Z10 ????
Such a sweet experience after about a month of use. Great OS that brought me to 2013 after having been stock in 2007 (iPhone). The hub is amazing and everything just floats. Guess you gotta own a Z30 to catch my point. And the security is the icing on the cake!
So what if is it dual-core, even if is quad-core what is the different the speed, i have iphone 5 en samsung s4 end blackberry z30, the swipe of z30 more efficient then the other both and that with dual-core with quad-core graphics, so if we example that z30 had a power as samsung or iphone in quad-core that mean this both phone are beyond behind, but that the z30 doing with a dual-core but gives the same power even better its exactly quite smart from blackberry system. Passion and you'll see blackberry 11 phone, that's gonna be so powerful then every samsung i phone and the rest of brands. They just now need time to heal and once it get there u gonna me amazing from blackberry in future. Now is just passion n z30 for me as testing this 3 phone is the best then the rest......
dhie, 25 Oct 2013Dual core?? C'mon... are you from prehistoric era?BB 10 is a light weight OS does not need high speed processors. Ask any retailer the meaning of a processor and i can bet he wont even know how to spell it, leave alone explain. Technology today has been consumerized to a large extent but people only know nuances without having in-depth knowledge of the same. You could compare this to any other device in the market and make sure yourselves. I just shifted from android to Z30.
