BlackBerry Z30 review

Digitaltrends
30 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Leave the continuing struggles of its parent company out of the picture, and the BlackBerry Z30 is a pretty good alternative to the iPhone or your many Android phones, particularly if you’re looking for a device that’s focused more on messaging and long battery life than apps or excellent imaging abilities.
  • Pros: Solid build quality, Long battery life, Nice AMOLED screen, Impressive message-oriented features, Excellent speakers
  • Cons: High-end price, mid-range specs, App selection lags behind Android and iOS, Only 16GB of internal storage

BlackBerry Z30 Review: In Depth

Recombu
5 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Does a bigger device make for a sweeter BlackBerry 10 experience? That’s what the Canadian smartphone maker is hoping with its new flagship phone - the BlackBerry Z30; which brings to the table more powerful hardware and a larger display than any previous handset in the company’s history. BlackBerry is billing the Z30 as the replacement to its current all-touchscreen device, the BlackBerry Z10 and it’s easy to see why.
  • Pros: Great battery life, Great connectivity, BlackBerry Hub is excellent
  • Cons: Bulky and heavy construction, Poor choice in BlackBerry App World, No Full HD display

  • Conclusion: The Z30 phablet is the best BlackBerry phone you can get, with killer battery life and excellent reception and call quality. But can it overcome the inferior app store or the uncertainty surrounding the company itself?
  • Pros: All-day battery life. Excellent reception and solid call quality. "Flow" metaphor makes multitasking easy.
  • Cons: BlackBerry App situation hasn't improved. Questions surround the company's fate.

Blackberry Z30 Review

31 October 2013
  • Summary: Buy the BlackBerry Z30 if you are or have been a BlackBerry user and are looking to stay with the company. If watching movies or having the latest apps comes second to using social networking and messaging apps, and you aren't already invested in any other mobile OS, in that case too, the Z30 will suit you. For the rest who want the latest apps and the best possible multimedia and gaming experiences on a smartphone, there are better alternatives to consider than the Z30.
  • Pros: Classy looks, Messages Hub is a great feature, Very good battery life, Exceptionally good touchscreen keyboard
  • Cons: Dual-core processor will fall short in the future, Low-res display, Flimsy plastic back panel

  • Excerpt: The Z30 is Blackberry’s fourth smartphone based around the BB10 operating system. It features a larger screen than its predecessor, measuring in at 5 inches. The screen itself offers 1280 x 720 resolution which, while HD, is not quite as high as some other phones like the Samsung Galaxy S4. Despite the slightly lower quality, most reviewers agree that the screen offers crisp details and excellent viewing angles.

  • Excerpt: BlackBerry, the company formerly known as Research in Motion, had a rebrand around one year ago. It dropped the RIM name, so now the company is named after its handsets, starting with the long-awaited BlackBerry Z10 touchscreen phone. This also introduced the new operating system and interface, BlackBerry 10, an OS that like Apple's iOS is based on UNIX. See also: 15 best smartphones: The best phone you can buy in 2013 .

  • Excerpt: Being able to connect to USB devices is great for business users, plus media fans will be pleased to see HDMI out included as standard – even the support for Jelly Bean app could make Android users look again… The glass screen looks good but the other components are plasticky – and not everyone will like the pattern on the back of the device.
