Pros: Audio/Video is AMAZING. No other mobile device beats the Z30's sound quality. Phone hardware quality is one of the best. Screen res is crystal clear HD picture quality. Quad-Graphics, Wow, nice. Too much positives to list. Awesome.
Cons: None that I am aware of. Not sure what CNET is talking about regarding "too little, too late" nonsense. Just look at the iPhone 5 's phone specs, then we can talk about too little, too late.
Pros: Top of the line audio,and video. Productive and secure blackberry 10 .2 OS. Incredible battery life. Multitasks mulch better than iPhone (even with OS7).If it wasn't for media negativity it would be selling like hotcakes.
Cons: Not seen as cool by those who haven't tried it. Having to show it off all the time :-).
Pros: toast notifications , bbm audio,bbm video , screen share. bigger and responsive screen. blackberry 10.2 OS most secure one in the planet. new design back cover is a plus. sound quality is real good. battery life is real goood.
Cons: well it doesnt have that serious cons. instagram isnt available yet , but you could sideload.
Pros: -Awesome 4G reception, rarely go below 4 bars where my iphone in same location would often be 1-2 bars -HUB -stock apps integration -sideloading option -amazing battery -loud speakers really the pros of this phone is almost everything, solid device
Cons: -Lack of app support from popular developers but plently of alternatives -Camera is still good but not at par with my iphone -Battery lasts too long, i dont know when to time my charges!!! uh yah thats pretty much it, superior OS any day
Pros: Best UI (once learned) Best keyboard Best at email, texting, messaging, social, phone Screen sharing - awesome for professionals/parents Best battery Great display All the Apps I need Excellent web browser - displays flash sites Miracast, DLNA, NFC
Cons: Few apps I need to sideload which is a pain - netflix & instagram While the battery is very good - I still like the option of battery swapping
Excerpt: Hey, Its a very great Phone and definitely the best BlackBerry Phone so far! No matter if you are an iPhone User or an Android User I will be sure you will love this Phone. For some the Love won't be Strong enough to make a switch (Multimedia lacks). But I personally fell in love with this phone. It's just an awesome phone and I'm very happy with it. Try it out!
Excerpt: All around great phone - one of the best. Hardware wise I'd rate it slightly lower than the Galaxy S4 but much more modern and advanced than the IPhone 5. The phone quality (software stability / hardware) is built better than the Samsung S4 and just slightly lower than the IPhone 5. Overall a versatile and well built phone for personal and business use. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone for any use if they want to try something new.
Summary: Was very surprised when I first used this phone. The keyboard is quite possibly the best in its class, the phones speed and intuitive OS is astounding. The best features for me are:- the virtual keyboard the OS the browser and the absolutely humongous battery dislikes:- wish the battery were removal and that's about it. Blackberry could have gained even more kudos though by bundling a hard case for the phone all in all I cannot fault this beast in any way. Love it.
Summary: I had blackberry for years now and made the mistake of going to the galaxy s3, at first I love the s3 but quickly had numerous issues with it returning one and the second having serviced so I gave up on it a year later. I bought the z30. It's amazing...I can honestly say there is nothing I can fault with this phone. all I can say is to try it. The battery is amazing and everything about this is great. It just feels good in your hand.
