BlackBerry Z30 Smartphone Review

Notebookcheck
3 June 2014
  • Summary: From 10 to 30 within a year. After the Z10's launch, the Canadian manufacturer takes a shot with its new Z30 model. BlackBerry uses hardware and software from the same source - thus meeting the demands on both is all the more difficult a task.
  • Pros: Battery runtime, Performance, Contrast and black level, Build quality, The screen has very good qualities and can also be read well outdoors. Furthermore, the battery life is incredibly good.
  • Cons: App availability in the "Blackberry World", Screen resolution, Weight, The hardware is impressive, but the software affects the overall impression. The limited availability of apps is frustrating.

BlackBerry Z30 – Review

Review guidelines
26 December 2013
  • Summary: As said earlier, the impression is that the BlackBerry Z30 arrived too late on the market than when it was conceived on the tables of the designers. This is demonstrated by the fact that what the company considers its top of the range has specific that would have been the height of a similar level a...
  • Pros: Construction of value, Excellent performance, Improved OS, Excellent autonomy.
  • Cons: Fluctuating room, The BlackBerry World endemically poor content, Comes too late on the market.

PC Magazine
2 November 2013
  • 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?

  • Cons: BlackBerry App situation hasn't improved. Questions surround the company's fate.

10 October 2013
  • Conclusion: If your company's IT department is invested in the BlackBerry universe, and your colleagues are mostly on BBM, the Z30 is your best bet. It folds all the security and messaging features of the BlackBerry platform you are used to, into a consumer-centric big screen phone with premium design and...

Review – BlackBerry Z30

What Mobile
19 May 2014
  • Summary: Perhaps if BlackBerry had focused its efforts on making a phone like this five years ago, we would be looking at a very different picture now. As it stands, a barren app store, odd features and a monster price tag may kill what could have been a competitive device.
  • Pros: Unique aesthetics, Sharp display with smooth animations, Better-than-average battery
  • Cons: Infuriatingly dim screen, Cripplingly limited app store, Ultra-high price

BlackBerry Z30 review

wired.co.uk
19 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The Z30 is in the zone to compete with the likes of Samsung's Galaxy S4 or Sony's Xperia Z and in terms of processing power, screen quality and style it certainly holds its own. The camera may not be quite as good as those two, but the considerably lower price tag must be a consideration, and the...
  • Pros: Fine screen, fast processor, BB10, decent camera, good battery life, cheaper than other premium handsets
  • Cons: App store understocked, swipe-based interface is a bit quirky
