Summary: If the BlackBerry Z30 is the Canadian company's last gasp, it will go out with more of a bang than a whimper. We're fans of the Z30's large display, multitasking capabilities, touch-screen keyboard, security features and very strong battery life. However, the lack of a comprehensive app ecosystem will continue to weigh on any BlackBerry device, no matter how good the hardware.
Summary: The Z30 retains all the strengths of BlackBerry, offering businesses a host of enhanced security services. However, it fails to address core problems within the ecosystem, like its lack of apps and offers at best comparable performance to other similarly priced smartphones in more developed ecosystems.
Pros: Better built than the Z10, BB10 security features are as robust as ever, good range of productivity services
Cons: Doesn't match similarly priced devices' specifications, camera is laggy, app offering is lacking
Summary: With its big, bold screen, the BlackBerry Z30 is the smart phone for you if you like watching movies, but refuse to leave BlackBerry. Its abysmally stocked app store, however, means you'd have a more pleasant experience overall looking at similarly sized Android phones.
Pros: Big screen with good colours, Attractive design, Good battery life
Cons: Poorly stocked app store, Screen isn't very bright, Doesn't offer anything over Android rivals, BB10 software still has some annoying quirks
Summary: Vorig jaar legde BlackBerry met BlackBerry 10 en de BlackBerry Z10 een goede basis, maar het was nog lang niet af. Inmiddels heeft de BlackBerry Z30 het stokje overgenomen en in deze review kijken we hoe het vlaggenschip van BlackBerry er nu voorstaat.
